Guest posts and food and/or kitty pictures start next week!  We’ve got some great stuff lined up, but there’s still some slots available in the second week.  Shoot us an email if you’re interested at grumpyrumblings at gmail.

As a reminder, if you’re interested in guest posting to us sometime in the first two weeks of October, shoot us an email at grumpy rumblings at gmail.  (So far we have zero guest posts lined up though a couple of people have expressed interest, and one post of kitten pictures.  Our readers may be hopelessly bored for minutes a day without your help.)

And now for some links:

Cloud is offering another session of her project management class.

I had a whole bunch of commentary on an OMDG post (still cannot comment on her blog because BlogSpot and WordPress not playing well), but it has sadly disappeared.  Here’s my out of context comment though:   Maybe if we forced more doctors to take statistics during medical school they’d actually apply the research on sleep deprivation and learning to the medical profession.  Though I suppose it has nothing to do with science at all and everything to do with the brainwashing aspects of hazing– they make doctors go through hazing because they had to and that’s how to get into the club.

Making O’Reilly animals.

Dumbed down dissertations.  I can do mine in one line too.  :)
