    Potato famine?


    Potato chips are going for $12 a bag in Japan. A potato crop failure in Hokkaido has caused panic buying and empty supermarket shelves.



    RNY has some new career options.........

    Women are leading Sunday mass in Portugal. A shortage of priests in the countryside requires volunteers, both male and female, to oversee services..

    United’s newest headache: scorpions on a plane. A passenger was stung after the arachnid fell out of an overhead bin.

    Life imitating art.......


    1. A New York man was indicted on fraud charges after he spent years pretending to be a registered architect – a case so closely resembling a “Seinfeld” plot that even the state’s attorney general couldn’t resist acknowledging the parallels. (New York Times)

    Well he survived seven years and had 100 "clients". Some of his clients were public sector who likely have much more experience with archs than an ordinary individual.

    WaPo..........We'll see.....

    Archaeology shocker: Study claims humans reached the Americas 100,000 years earlier than expected
    Broken mastodon fossils and several large stones uncovered in California are evidence of ancient humans in the Americas 130,000 years ago — more than 100,000 years before scientists thought they first arrived, according to a controversial new report. The paleontologists behind the discovery believe it could blow open the debate about when humans settled in the Americas. But many experts in the field are skeptical that these bones and stones were modified by humans, and not by nature.

    well... I looked at the data today... and ..errrr.... it's a nice idea (certainly possible the Neanderthals would have followed bison at that time) BUT... it is a bit of a stretch as a stand alone piece of data ... if more examples start popping up then the field will change


    usually what happens in this case is folks in the lab that are sitting on a piece of data which they do not understand start digging out their old bones and look at it with a fresh set of 'metrics' ... "Entertain the Possibility - Open Your Mind - Wide Open" (i am always telling my people)

    we will know the verdict in 5 years or so ...

    Sorry to hear Random. Don't suppose they'd give you a Brompton Cocktail...named for the hospital who pioneered it for burns I think. Morphine , cocaine and alcohol. Nah , maybe not.
