This is Maxine. She’s my role model. Just wait until my kids try sticking me into a nursing home. They’ll never see what hit them.

I found this yesterday while I was visiting my favorite blogging attorney at Second Effort. Scientists have proven that Middle Age makes us depressed. Well, duh! I’d like to know who was silly enough to fund that project. I guess that Thomas Tusser was right when he said that a fool and his money are soon parted.

Why can’t they fund studies like this one:

This study makes more sense. What do you think?

When you’re done scratching your head and trying to figure out how these scientists procured their research funding, check this post out. Amy Quinn from Live Smarter talks about the ten terrible patients you meet in a hospital, and how to deal with them. It’s good stuff, and she didn’t need a research grant to figure it out. Then go visit Kim at Emergiblog for Beatle’s Week at Grand Rounds. You’re going to love it! Yeah, yeah, yeah!!!
