Yes, it's what we do to the children at this time of year.

Just for fun.

It's A Tradition
Topic: Why Does It Matter?

A family thing, started by my long-deceased dad - forty years ago and counting - who, on the first day of winter each year, would proclaim happily:

"The days are getting longer; winter's back is broken."

longer days

True but misleading, we've now learned to think about such things, which have become the order of our days, thanks to the politics of our time . . .

From which silliness escape is impossible, now, two score years gone by.

For government work.

campus rape

A new report on sexual assault released today by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) officially puts to bed the bogus statistic that one in five women on college campuses are victims of sexual assault. In fact, non-students are 25 percent more likely to be victims of sexual assault than students, according to the data. And the real number of assault victims is several orders of magnitude lower than one-in-five.

The full study, which was published by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, a division within DOJ, found that rather than one in five female college students becoming victims of sexual assault, the actual rate is 6.1 per 1,000 students, or 0.61 percent (instead of 1-in-5, the real number is 0.03-in-5). For non-students, the rate of sexual assault is 7.6 per 1,000 people.

Even more striking is that according to the BJS data, the likelihood of sexual assault has actually been trending downward across the board since 1997.

Brought to you by the same people who make the statistical case for man-caused global warming . . .

So you know that it's made up and wholly false.

Say that much for these people:

They're predictable.

They're consistent.

They're maliciously wrong.

We make it into an irrebuttable presumption instead?

That's what the lawyers like to do . . .

As I recall in spite of myself, still.

Ask Your Doctor

Is your heart strong enough for sex?

Is there a chance - any chance at all - of having an erection that lasts for four hours or more?

Probably not, and certainly not with just sugar pills.

xkcd

And if you suddenly go blind, or can't breathe, you should be prompted to call your doctor . . .

With sex strictly an alternative to sitting side-by-side in those cute, claw-footed bathtubs.

Toshiba-san is back from the shop and going through his paces. Still unwanted pop-ups - new ones, even - but much quicker.

The good, the bad and the ugly.

Boffo's back, too, then.

Enjoy.
