Around the Intertubes: March 4, 2011

1. If you are still looking for the Fountain of Youth, it can probably be found in your gym.

2. Kudos to Rush Holt. Beating Watson is a very impressive achievement. Indeed, the simple act of beating Watson to the buzzer is something to brag about.

3. Speaking of smart people, you’d better stop dissing the folks from Hollywood. A lot of them are quite impressive, intellectually.

  • Demosthenes

    Pejman sez: “A lot of [Hollywood folks] are quite impressive, intellectually.”

    Pejman’s evidence: Two puff pieces on Natalie Portman and James Franco.

    So, two people in an entire town…constitutes a lot?

    Demosthenes sez: The plural of “anecdote” is not “data.” Especially true in this case, where we can see the plural of “anecdote” at work.
