5/26    Is it correct to call someone the daughter of Puerto Rican
        "immigrants"? Seems wrong to me. Puerto Ricans get US Passports.
        \_ Yes it is correct.
           \_ Thanks! Obama immigrated from Hawaii, right?
              \_ Not the same.  Doubly not the same in the early 50s.  Go watch
                 yourself some West Side Story.

12/11   Congress makes me sick. They forked over $700B to the banks with
    less hand-wringing. $15B is chump change. Just do it. They don't
    deserve it, but neither did the banks.
        \_ The $700B was a loan.
           \_ and we're gonna get every penny back, with interest!  or how
              about this:  it would have been much worse if we hadn't loaned

12/3    When politicians lose elections, they often claim it's because the
        voters were stupid.  Here's an interesting new survey:
        - 35 % of McCain voters got 10 or more of 13 questions correct.
        - 18% of Obama voters got 10 or more of 13 questions correct.
        - McCain voters knew which party controls congress by a 63-27 margin.
        - Obama voters got the 'congressional control' question wrong by 43-41.

Building on past studies of testosterone levels, a husband-and-wife team of psychologists examined Internet usage and found a pattern between the number of search requests for porn and the states that backed the winners in the last two presidential elections, as well as in the congressional election between them. pornography immediately following a win, but this suggests the environment changes us in ways that we don't think about," said Villanova University's Patrick Markey, who collaborated with his wife, Charlotte Markey of Rutgers University, on the study. Porn Tech Past research showed that after they win or lose in competitions, people often experience a surge or drop in testosterone, respectively. Such changes are seen even if the people are only spectators of contests. For instance, while men typically show a slight nighttime drop in testosterone levels, male voters for Sen. John McCain showed a larger testosterone drop than normal during the 2008 US presidential election, while those of male voters for Sen. Since testosterone and sex are linked, the Markeys reasoned that after elections, men who had voted for winners might seek out sexual stimulation. The two psychologists focused on the Internet, where up to 25 percent of all search-engine requests made every day are for pornography, and men make up 72 percent of visitors to porn sites. Google supplies weekly reports on what people search for and keeps track of which areas those requests are made from. Republicans and Democrats, respectively -- in the week before and the week after the 2004 and 2008 presidential elections and the 2006 midterm elections. This involved checking searches for the 10 most popular words used in porn requests, such as "boobs." The Markeys discovered that after the 2004 presidential election (won by Republican George W Bush) and the 2008 presidential elections (won by Democrat Obama), porn searches did go up in states that voted for the winning party. "We don't know for sure if testosterone is the reason why we are seeing these changes in porn-seeking behavior," Patrick Markey said, "but it seems like the best explanation at the moment." This trend also held true for the midterm elections in 2006, when Democrats captured the Senate, House of Representatives and a majority of governorships and state legislatures. "If we saw this just for one election, you might chalk it up to chance, but we saw a pattern with it happening three times," Patrick Markey told LiveScience. "It's also cool that we saw these results with both Republicans and Democrats -- that these were general results not just driven by one political party." However, past research has shown mixed results when it comes to the links between mood and desire -- for instance, it's often the people who feel down who have a greater desire for sex. "This is probably because for some people, sex is something we do not do to celebrate our moods but to change them -- when we are sad, we have sex to make ourselves happy," Patrick Markey said.
