  1. I’ll bet that London GP sounded really really smart saying “manifestly absurd”. A good British accent has that effect.
    BTW, I know this is off-topic but I like the fact they still use the term GP in Britain. Here in Canada, GPs insist on being called “family physicians,” which sounds like it means fertility doctor or that they’re only for married people and their kids.
    I digress. Sorry. :-)

  2. The ‘rain = autism’ article was interesting, but the comments below it really bring out the issues with the study. One great thing about the Web and science articles: you can read the comments from other readers educated in the subject without waiting for the next issue to arrive in the snail mail.
