Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Friday, October 19, 2021

Here’s a timely example of how deeply my pop-cultural knowledge infects my very being:

On the way to work this morning, a heavy-set woman coming down the sidewalk toward me suddenly, for no visible reason, tripped over her own feet, stumbling forward several steps and flailing her arms before righting herself. (Luckily, no one was harmed.)

And the first thought to come into my head?

This immortal Animal House quote, delivered by Dean Vernon Wormer (surely you remember the scene):

Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son.

I know. You try living with such a worldview.

People can’t seem to stop poking around the (self?) portrait of Leonardo da Vinci’s favorite girl.

For those not lucky enough to get access to the authentic original, Mega Mona Lisa provides an outlet for all sorts of reinterpretations of the timeless smiler.

I’m sure da Vinci would have approved, especially of skin-bearing renditions. He was way ahead of his time in most other aspects of life. Besides, as smart as he was, he probably could have easily sweet-talked his subject into loosening up for the easel.
