Some Days You Just Gotta Post Links Vol. 5

When Pumpkins Drink

Okay, so I posted this photo last year. But most of you weren’t around last year; laziness is the fall-back position today anyway, so what the hell. It’s still funny, if, um, vulgar.

I also figured it was a day for links: looking back over the past few weeks, there’s been a lot of substantial writing. In short: tired brain. So without further ado:

  • Do dogs enjoy dressing up for Hallowe’en? Short answer, no: “To put raiments on a dog is to blithely ignore his essential dogness.”
  • Findings shared with Nursing Times reveal that members of the public, who were interviewed in 81 research sessions, commonly described nurses as overworked, underpaid, patient, stoic, put upon, unambitious and passive.”

Per Capita Health Spending And 15-Year Survival For 45-Year-Old Women, United States And 12 Comparison Countries, 1975 And 2005

  • Yet another reason to be cheerful. Why do I think our descendants (if, in fact, we have any) will view our stupidity with the same distaste, shame and smugness (if truth be known) we view the Inquisition, burning at the stake, the Thirty Years War, the slave trade in the 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries, or the Opium War?
