Noteable Quoatables

From our SVP at work on choosing an EMR platform:

“Choosing a database isn’t like choosing a girlfriend. A girlfriend you can break up with if things don’t work out. A database is more like a marriage, you’re stuck with it”

/Geek humor?

Scary quote from work

From yesterday, after agreeing to being a venipuncture volunteer:

From a girl feeling-up my forearms….

“ooh, you have such nice arms, can I stick a catheter in you?

Not quite sure how to respond to that one…

Conversation of the day

While the girls are discussing Jersey Shore.

Girl 1: “What’s that quote…something like ‘it takes three things to make a guido…gym, tanning, laundy”

Me (passing by): “crap! I’m 2/3rds of the way there–I hit the gym and do my own laundry!”

Laughter ensues.

/No, I don’t tan on purpose. Only what sunlight I get in the summer time.

Quote of the day

Public trust is something scientists must work hard to maintain. When it comes to science and public policy, the average citizen usually has to trust scientists—whose word he or she has to take on faith almost as much as a religious believer takes the word of a priest. Once that trust is undermined, as it has been in recent years, science becomes a casualty of politics.”

–Cathy Young, When Science Becomes a Casualty of Politics

Charlie Rangel is an idiot

Congressman Rangel:
“If you become an officer and you have a pistol and you are of color, in or out of uniform, your chances of getting shot down by a police officer are a lot heavier than if you were not of color,”

Not to mention that as the story has been reported now, when approached by police, the (now) deceased officer didn’t put down his weapon, and instead turned to face the (shooting) officer with his gun drawn….

From the same article:

But NYPD procedure for officer confrontation places the responsibility on the out-of-uniform officers. They are instructed to drop their weapon, stay still and to obey all directions from the uniformed officers to diffuse the tense situation.

Pot, kettle, black

“On a side note, both at the EXPO and the after-party, people kept walking by yelling “juicer!” and “steroid user!” at [Jose] Canseco. Uh, you’re at the Arnold. Calling someone a juicer here is like walking into a porn convention and calling the women sluts. It’s, you know, kinda the whole idea.”–Chris Shugart

Contrasting quotes

Michelle Obama:

Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.

Ronald Reagan:

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”

Once again, the Gipper nailed it!  I’d rather be uninvolved and uninformed if it’s going to be the government trying to get involved in my life.

Quote of the Day

Who among us hasn’t found relief from a bad breakup, the lost job, or even the loss of someone close, by lifting weights? Who among us hasn’t mentally transmitted his troubles into a heavy weight and just torn that mother up in a sweaty effort to exercise and exorcise that demon? Who among us hasn’t felt the blood surging through our muscles, followed by an intense cramping pain that’s both excruciating and cathartic at the same time?

You can have your soothing wind chimes, I’ll take the beautiful sound of clanging dumbbells any day–TC

Quote of the Day

“When we’re in the gym, we’re in this indescribable euphoria zone. It’s a feeling of being on, of being completely alive and aware. If you haven’t been there, then it’s like trying to describe color to a person who’s been blind since birth. Within this haze of pleasure and pain, there’s knowledge and power, self-discipline and self-reliance. If you do it long enough, Bob, there’s even enlightenment. Sometimes, the answers to questions you didn’t even know you had are sitting there on those rubber mats, wrapped up in a neat package of iron plates and bars.–Chris Shugart

Some of my best ideas come to me in the gym…not sure why, but they do.

Quote

“You know a city is rather safe when it’s biggest crime problems are knock off handbags and people stealing their grandfather’s viagra or cialis”–My roomate

Quote of the Day

“One is 95 percent certainty, and the other is…50 percent and a feather”

According to attorney Kevin Conway (quoted in the Washington Post), that is the difference between the scientific and legal burden of proof
(Via Action Potential)

With the differences in the terms of “burden of proof”, , it is worth pondering if/how science should be decided in a Court of Law.

Overheard in the lab

(Italian heritage) Friend: “All the discussions here in the lab usually boil down to which empire was better, the Greeks or the Romans”

Me: Greeks, Romans–they both persecuted and fucked over my people (the Jews)–yet we’re still around…now where are those bagels!
