On the road again: In the meantime…Satan

After having a great time at NECSS participating in a panel about science-based medicine (although I hate to have to say that I was disappointed that the science-based medicine panel was cut short to get the conference back on schedule, which meant that we didn’t get to answer nearly as many questions as we would have liked), I’m on my way to Washington, DC in order to attend the annual AACR meeting to learn about (hopefully) the latest and greatest cancer science and therapies. In the meantime, I just discovered Stephen Lynch and couldn’t resist posting this to amuse everyone (hopefully) until I resume posting tomorrow.

Obviously, Satan did get one thing wrong in this song. Maybe Barack Obama really is the Antichrist, and Satan was just lying two years ago when he said Obama didn’t have a chance. The Devil is like that, you know…

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.

Bahahahahahah! Love Stephen Lynch! This song is one of my absolute favorites of his. Well played, Dr. Orac sir. Well played indeed!

Better the Devil you know than the Devil you don’t know. Of course, this comment will be misconstrued, copied and pasted over to AoA as an example of a personal attack on their beliefs. (Just sayin’)

PW, that entire segment was scary. The scam-dulous clinic and its founder are worthy of an Orac blog-post, methinks.
