    Why do computer scientists often confuse Christmas and Halloween?

    Because Oct 31 = Dec 25

  4. Double-Blind Parachute Trials

    September 8, 2008 by Craig

    From In a Parachute-Effectiveness Trial, Who Gets the Placebo?.

    It might be argued that the pressure exerted on individuals to use parachutes is yet another example of a natural, life-enhancing experience being turned into a situation of fear and dependency. The widespread use of the parachute may just be another example of doctorsโ€™ obsession with disease prevention and their misplaced belief in unproved technology to provide effective protection against occasional adverse events.
