    What, me worry?

    I wouldn't be the person I am today without having had Mad Magazine as a kid. But somehow it's appropriate for it to be gone.

    I have a vague memory of trying to get a Scientific American magazine back cover to "fold-in" and reveal a secret joke the way Mad did.

    No music collection can be considered complete without the Getz/Gilberto album holding a prominent place.

    Stan Getz didn't like Astrud Gilberto's voice. Shows what he knows about music, I guess.

    Yes, she can't sing. OTOH, she does. But everything she sings dies.

    I see that Blade Runner was supposed to have been a flop when it was released. What were people thinking of? I recall stunned enthusiasm at that time.

    Kary Mullis, whose invention of the polymerase chain reaction technique earned him the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1993, died of pneumonia on August 7, according to MyNewsLA.com. He was 74 years old.

    According to a 1998 profile in The Washington Post, Mullis was known as a “weird” figure in science and “flamboyant” philanderer who evangelized the use of LSD, denied the evidence for both global warming and HIV as a cause of AIDS, consulted for O.J. Simpson’s legal defense, and formed a company that sold jewelry embedded with celebrities’ DNA. The opening paragraph of his Nobel autobiography includes a scene depicting a visit from Mullis’s dying grandfather in “non-substantial form.”

    What a character. He proved that a surfer can win a Nobel Prize, and that single invention of PCR changed the world in many ways. It may have been an inevitable invention but Kary got there first and got famous from it.
    74 is not very old as these things go.

    I don't think so. I think I did read a book he wrote though. Memory is vague.
