    Here's an idea Ian. Everyone interested get that book, you can buy it used. And, we all could discuss it. What do you think? Alot for discussion if you want.

    One thought, Ian, the failure to understand the correlation-squared index is one reason nonscientists are often overly impressed by scientific data.

    I could explain this, but, if you buy the book it will, too.

    My grandfather used to tell me "All things in moderation, including moderation." It took me quite a while to understand what he meant. He went to a fundamentalist church twice every Sunday, kept a bottle of cheap brandy available at all times, retired from farming when he was 85, and smoked Camel straights until the day he died at age 92. Hypocritical? Perhaps, but he kept his bases covered, I think. Can you still buy Camel straights?

    yeah, some people have genetics that allow them to drink and smoke , eat a pound of bacon every day, and do the hootchie koo as much as they want and live to a ripe old age. Others eat well, never smoke or drink, go to church and die young. Enjoy life and be considerate to others, help them when you can. Your reward may vary.
    Apparently, the Camel unfiltered are still available: http://www.cigreviews.com/view-review/Camel/21

    Bob, if you eat a pound of bacon with the fat, you will have high testosterone levels which increases agression and your family size, hence, the hootchie koo.

    I got the crap genes and missing chromosones, so I eat what I want and call it good.
