I've opened this up for the world to vote, so if bribing me is not appealing, please feel free to bribe your friends into voting. Also, some people were claiming that they need "research material" so they can make informed votes.

This round ends Wednesday morning.

Intel decided to build their new facility in Arizona, not here. This is big enough news that we have a bunch of news crews out front.

Poll #539414 Snarky-snarky!

What should I put on a sign to be seen behind the interviewers?



No promises and if I will do a sign, but if someone has something especially good that will not get me fired, I might give it a try.

You know the assumption that crazy people collect cats? It turns out that might be false. It could be cat's make people crazy. According to National Geographic (August 2005, page 1 under "The Science Of Things") it says that cat's can cause schizophrenia. Cat feces caries a protozoan called Toxoplasma gondii which has been found to increase the cases of schizophrenia by 2.6 times for people exposed in utero.

While I love to take these opertunities to mock my cat owning friends, the interesting thing is there is growing suspicion that many mental illnesses might be caused by verious infections of one type or another. A couple of long known examples of this are syphilis causing psychosis and bacteria from ticks causing lyme disease. And even research showing a possible connection between herpes and bipolar disorder.

This might allow for new and better treatment and possibly vaccines for mental illnesses.
