'never talked about' by the media, these papers that are never mentioned by credible sources because they're not very good papers, not because they're not what we want to hear. To be fair though, these papers are often not very good because nobody funds the research; it's not funded because it's not as likely to produce good results. I'll stick with biotransformation because I can get funding (and I don't have to go mucking around in cattle farm 'effluent' beds looking for fish.

I found this 'punk rock' club in Galveston last weekend when my friend from Baton Rouge was in with his Psychology friends. It was cramped and heavy with fat people wearing lots of checkerboard pattern and thick-rimmed glasses. I'm not a big punk rock/ska fan and looking at those people while listening to it was like little Alex listening to Beethoven't 9th while watching gang-rape and being made nauseous with drugs. I'll equate it, like so many other music genres, with fat chicks and bars that don't even serve liquor. Although, I did get to see that (and one other) bar this weekend, effectively doubling the number of bars I've seen since I moved here almost 2 years ago.

alcohol and milk should not mix. Juice, sure. Cough syrup, definitely. I don't drink much liquor anymore because I get loud and do really dumb shit a lot. When I do drink liquor, It's either shots or jack & coke, generally.

Re: Lenny's?
I think the name was 'acoustic' something, and it was in the Tourist district, I think on the block the Opera house is on, but on the East side of that block. It is cramped and had a $5 cover. I was using 'punk rock bar' facetiously, but everybody's definition is different so... Anyway, it may only have those bands on Friday nights or somesuch.

ohhhh
Yah there was an actual "punk rawk" bar here called Lenny's. I was hoping you didnt go there... lame. Actually you are talking bout the acoustic cafe. Townes Van Zandt got his start there and his original bassist Wrecks Bell still owns and operates. You prolly went on a bad night, usually its empty with a bunch of old hippies talking about Townes.
