Patterico's Pontifications


Best Research Paper Ever

Filed under: Humor — Patterico @ 2:16 pm

Via South Knox Bubba comes the funniest research paper on Electron Band Structure In Germanium I have ever seen. The summary of the study’s findings reads as follows:

Abstract: The exponential dependence of resistivity on temperature in germanium is found to be a great big lie. My careful theoretical modeling and painstaking experimentation reveal 1) that my equipment is crap, as are all the available texts on the subject and 2) that this whole exercise was a complete waste of my time.

And it goes on like that.

Check it out (warning: not for those offended by profanity).

Power Line: Spain Attacks a “Win for al Qaeda”

Filed under: Terrorism — Patterico @ 1:21 pm

Power Line says that the Spain bombings are looking like A Win for Al Qaeda. Sobering thoughts — and a heads-up that you might want to stay at home Halloween weekend.

P.S. Talk about an “October surprise.”

UPDATE: Little Green Footballs says Al Qaeda is simply applying a principle taught by Sun Tzu: attack alliances.

UPDATE x2: Jeff Jarvis says the results are now official.
