Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

The significance of null

"Beginning this July, 11 medical journals, including the New England Journal of Medicine, will publish only those clinical studies registered in a publicly available database prior to being conducted. By doing this, these journals' editors hope to keep clinical-intervention sponsors--such as pharmaceutical companies--from suppressing negative results. And this move may also make studies that find no post-intervention improvements more readily accessible to both researchers and the public."

"Radio had its golden age in the 1930s. In the 1950s, it was television's turn. Historians may well date the golden age of the blog from 2004—when Merriam-Webster.com's most searched-for definition was blog. How long can it last? Who knows? Here's what we discovered about the new medium this year"

Electron Band Structure In Germanium, My Ass

"Abstract: The exponential dependence of resistivity on temperature in germanium is found to be a great big lie. My careful theoretical modeling and painstaking experimentation reveal 1) that my equipment is crap, as are all the available texts on the subject and 2) that this whole exercise was a complete waste of my time."
