Orac knows a lot of other things too

Continuing my series of posts designed to categorize and archive essential insolence from the old blog, I now continue with some miscellaneous tidbits:

  • The EneMan files (Dedicated to the very strange character who is this weblog’s de facto mascot)
  • Orac’s encounter with Derek Jeter
  • I never realized
  • “Zero tolerance”=”Zero common sense”
  • Kentucky Zombie update
  • Inauguration Day musings
  • First impressions of Mac OS X v10.4 (“Tiger”)
  • Fourth of July thoughts
  • Dispatches from the road
  • September 11
  • Scary (Followup: It looks like I found Chris some friends)
  • Unclear on the concept
  • A death in the family
  • By Orac

    Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

    That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

    DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
