Scientist conducting a study

We’ve just posted the Summer 2010 column, titled The Humorless Twit Says “Study This.” Here’s a little snippet:

Most recently, the news had on a story about a study that noted sleeping too little can shorten your life (by the way, for those of you who recall, I have a now one-year-old son I wrote about for last summer’s issue and as I write this, I had a measly three hours of sleep last night [which might explain this column…]).

That got me to thinking about all the other studies I’ve heard about in the past that claim if you engage in behavior A, your life will be shortened by X years (or Y percent). So I decided out of sheer boredom curiosity to see which of these supposedly life-shortening behaviors I take part in, and by how long my life will be shortened.

Before we forget, just a little note to let you know we’ve updated the World’s Most Boring Website. We redesigned it–we know, it begs the question “Why would you want to redesign a boring website?”

We’ve added a ton more stuff to it, most notably, one of the most boring books we’ve ever tried unsuccessfully to read all the way through: War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy.

We’ve just posted the May 2009 column, The Humorless Twit’s Recipe for Disaster. Here’s a little preview:

1. Peel and dice potatoes.
2. Cut finger, bleed on potatoes, curse, bandage finger.
3. Rinse potatoes.
4. Place potatoes in a pot.
5. Add cold water to cover.
6. Bring to a boil over high heat.
7. Bandage catches fire, burning cut finger; curse up a storm.
