This’d be one of those things Bill Hicks would call a good drug story. In Baseball, for a pitcher, one of the most impressive feats is to throw a straight no-hitter, practically winning a game single-handedly for your team. On June 12th, 1970, Dock Ellis of the Pittsburgh Pirates did just that, against the San Diego Padres, while tripping balls on acid. This adorable little video illustrates his experience while he narrates in the background. Some good stuff, maaaan.
One of my favourite neuroscience bloggers, Miss Shelley Batts, is currently one of twenty individuals competing for a $10,000 Student Blogger Scholarship. Now, I think this girl is hella smart, and is working her way toward a PhD which will inevitably help all of mankind, so I’d like to see her win. What does this have to do with you, and why aren’t I wearing any pants, you might ask? Two good questions! Unfortunately for you, I can only answer one of them! To win the scholarship, Shelly needs VOTES. So, follow the linky-poo, and vote for Shelly Batts. She’s currently in second place, so your vote will make a difference, unlike in your typical government election. What are you waiting for!
