Ain't dead yet

Apologies for the blog silence again this week. Last week was a bit crazy and I'm still catching up for it. I have a write-up of last weekend's evolution and intelligent design conference on the way, but before I attended that, I met up quickly for drinks and conversation with a few other Sciencebloggers. Left to right, The Intersection's Chris Mooney, Evil Monkey of Neurotopia, me, and Orac of Respectful Insolence.

In case you wondered, yes, ScienceBlogs is just a big cabal, and, as evidence, I present the following photo from a week and a half ago, when I managed to meet, drink, and conspire to take over the science blogosphere at the Toledo Lounge in Washington, D.C. with Tara Smith of Aetiology, Evil…
It's been quite awhile since I've had a real vacation. Most of my "vacations" are spent traveling back and forth to relatives' and friends' houses, and this Christmas holiday has been no exception. After a jaunt to Ohio to visit family, I'm currently in the metro D. C. area visiting a friend, and…
A back alley conversation among several ScienceBloggers is the impetus for this week's post. A couple of weeks ago, Dave Munger over at Cognitive Daily asked all of us about our favorite cheap wine deals. So, with the permission of my SciBlings, I thought I'd let the readership in on the…
Last weekend here in D.C., I could be found hanging out at Toledo Lounge with fellow science bloggers (left to right) Evil Monkey of Neurotopia, Tara of Aetiology, and Orac of Respectful Insolence. I guess I was too drunk to notice that thing he was wearing on his head. (Just kidding.) Anyway, here…

LOL Speaking of dead, dont worry about us, we're entertaining ourselves beating a dead horse.


What are we up to? 600 comments now? lol!

I've heard that women find men more attractive if they are near a woman who is smiling. I'm not a very good judge of men, generally, but, by this standard, Chris, Evil, and Orac look pretty good in this image.

Apparently, men don't use social cues from other men to judge women. So, you'd look just as good in the same picture, but with the guys cropped off.

Is Orac smiling? I'm having a hard time reading his facial expression.

If I had to guess, Orac was likely ambivalent.

I think the correct answer is that there's almost no good quality evidence that Orac is smiling. I, however, suspect publication bias might be causing good quality evidence of Orac's smiling to remain unpublished.
