Psychosomatic is it
looks like shit
smells like shit
there’s a good chance it is shit
a rather strong correlation
can we jump to causation?
if you’re not part of the solution
you’re part of the precipitate
precipitating more precipitation
is it raining?
an economist and a sociologist walk into a bar
the bartender says, is this a fucking joke?
I have some theories
about what you’re drinking
but where’s the anthropologist?
In my mind I see Professor David Gerard (economist) and Professor Jeffrey Kidder (sociologist) walk into a bar. I’m already sitting at my favorite stool in the corner, close enough to hear their conversation but not really contribute too much to it. Just in observation mode I take detailed mental notes but forget half of them. The bartender is playing Yo La Tengo's "I'm not afraid of you and I will beat your ass" at just the right volume. Gerard a former rugby player doesn’t drink anymore so he’s having a soda water. Kidder a former bike messenger may or may not have a beer. But they’ll both have some interesting commentary on the situation and they both ride bikes.
