How can it be ‘new’ and improved? If it is ‘improved’ it how can it be truly new? Does not the word improved, by definition imply the prior existence of the object in question?
Anyhooo, I am making a huge job change and it is scary as hell. I’m leaving the relative comfort and safety of fifteen years tenure (that and $1, I could buy a bag of chips) for the land of clinical informatics. I am super excited about the work I’ll be doing.
More in the category of “WTF?”
The “in loving memory of….” stickers on the back windows of cars. Is this a southern thing? A northeast Tennessee thing? Every time I see that, it makes me thing they bought the car with the life insurance. Well, unless the car was a total POS, then I wonder how I’d feel about a 1985 Buick Skylark in my loving memory.
Also, I don’t get the reasoning behind putting little memorials up on the roadside, presumably where someone actually expired. I wonder how many accidents have been caused by people trying to read the teeny tiny print on them. Hell, people at least make it big enough that I can see it in a drive by. I bet you some psychology grad student out there has done a paper on both of these phenomena.
Oh, and my biggest WTF moment recently goes out to the State of Virgina and their vaginal ultrasound law. If the state of VA wants to see my vajayjay, they got to at least take me to the steak house first.
