My friend Scott, a meteorologist, had a fierce headache. So he went and got a spinal tap, as meningitis was suspected. Various rare and unlikely complications ensued (it all came out well in the end). The sort of complications that fall into the "complication one only happens to 1/x of the population, of that 1/x, only 1/y get complication two, and of that 1/y, complication three is so rare that it's a sure-fire way to be mentioned in the NEJM". He got all of them, so now we call him "3 σ Scott."
σ is, as you all know, the standard deviation.
Lots of beach time this summer. Rough life, but someone's gotta live it, and I'm willing to Take One For the Team if necessary.
Anyone seen July? It hasn't made it to DCia yet. Temps in the low 80's, low humidities. Only turn the AC on on weekends when I'm out of the apartment, and it doesn't run much then. Power bill last month was $40, this month will likely be similar. July is supposed to be so ungodly hot and humid that it drives Congress out of town.
