Memorial Day, Poll Results and BP Ad.

Three quick things for today:

1.  Happy Memorial Day everyone.  Today is especially important to me as my father is a Colonel in the Army and presently stationed in Iraq.  I would like to say thanks to the troops currently serving and those who have ever served.

2.  Poll Results.  We had our first poll addressing the question: What Is You Opinion On Stem Cell Research? We had 31 people vote and the majority, 54%, favor all forms of stem cell research, including embryonic.  The above graphic shows the breakdown of the percentages for the poll.

3.  BP Lives Up To Its Mantra.  Lastly, I would like to point out BP has been very successful living up to its claims.  Just take a look at one of their advertisements they ran in 1999:

Again, have a happy Memorial Day!


  1. In 1618, Descartes joined the International College of War of Maurice of Nassau in the Dutch Republic, so as a Cartesian I appreciate army and especially some realms of research.

  2. It's definitely black humor, but I had to chuckle at the BP "oil to American shores" mantra.


  3. The BP image is funny but fake:

  4. Ah, Jared, you had to ruin it for me. :)
