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.

atomium

I saw this article on Yahoo Travel today about weird buildings (with pictures!) and I wanted to post some of the pics here but I realize they’re probably copyrighted. But that’s okay, I found a picture of one of the buildings (see above), known as the Atomium, on a royalty-free photo website I often use.

The Atomium is located in Brussels, Belgium. It was actually constructed for the 1958 World Fair.

Pretty neat, huh?
