This had been a topic I had been trying to get to for a couple of weeks, but so other topic kept getting in the way. Well, finally, the topic of pants would get its due.
And then there’s this whole sagging pants thing. Which I turned into…
Perhaps you’ve heard that sagging pants originated in prison as a signal to other inmates as to the availability for sexual encounters. Well, although the “pants on the ground” look did originate in prison, it doesn’t mean the “wearer” is ready for some action.
Snopes.com comes to the rescue again.
Or watch them on Letterman.
I knew Pete Townshend was into spiritualism and such. I didn’t know he dabbled in pseudoscience. He and Dave talked about suffering from tinnitus, nerve damage in the ears that cause a constant ringing sound. In fact, I have nerve damage in my left ear.
But I digress.
Pete said he’s been treating his tinnitus with “a lot of New Age stuff” and working with a homeopathic doctor. Oh? Well, he says it’s working and maybe it is, but since his claims are subjective it’s difficult to know for certain that the “alternative medicine” is working.
Maybe it is, but I have my doubts. Especially about homeopathy, which if it’s being done right has NOTHING in it.
Alternative medicine that works is called medicine.
If it walks like an icequake and quacks like an icequake, it’s an icequake. That’s what the “Bloop” turns out to be. The mysterious sound from the ocean depths is consistent with the known sounds of icequakes.
It’s all right here.
