Riddle Me This…(poll included)

I was going past a university area and I saw a young (20’s? woman). She made my heart go “pitter-pat”; I was almost in “love at first sight”.

When I saw her, what was she doing that made me so love struck?

(ok, back to work; I am avoiding coordinating references for my paper. :-P)

Weekend coming up

Workout notes
Weights. I was stronger than expected:
rotator cuff
pull ups (5 sets of 10)
bench: 10 x 135, 5 x 180 (got a spotter), 6 x 170, 10 x 160
incline: 9 x 135, 9 x 135
pull down/curl/Hammer row supersets: 3 sets of 10 each (160 pull down, 210 row, 57.5 curls; more than normal)
military (dumbbell): 2 sets of 12 x 50, 1 set of 10 x 80 machine.
abs: 3 sets of: crunch, twist, sit back, vertical crunch
legs: 3 sets of: adduction, abduction, push back (slowly done)
Also I did 100 hip hikes (each side), back PT, and more piriformis/gluteus medius.

Sadly, the leg exercises were enough to induce some mild “after the fact” quivering; I am weak.

This weekend: I am singed up for a trail marathon. I have to tell myself: unless I am injured, quitting isn’t an option. That also means going out very conservatively and bringing extra shoes, gaiters and plenty of salt tablets.
The trails might be a mess, so perhaps 3:15/3:45 = 7 hours is realistic. If I am not injured and the RD hasn’t pulled me from the course, I go onward after the first loop.

John Roberts is known as a brainy justice, but evidently he cherry picked some statistics during his Voting Rights Act examination. He also might not have used the statistics correctly.

This brings me to another difficulty that I have: I am reasonably well versed in statistics and some scientific matters. But what about, say, macro economics? I have no economic training.

I ask that because I follow Paul Krugman and I like his stuff. But do I like his stuff because it agrees with my (undeveloped) intuition and ideology? I honestly can’t tell and I too can fall victim to believing “what I want to be true”.

Note: my back is a bit more sore than normal. I have to stretch it really well; perhaps do some yoga and a light jog.
