Wanted to babble pointlessly and do tons and tons of research. (Annoyingly, I am reading vastly faster than I am researching. This annoys me, as I know there is subtlty that I am missing because I don't understand the entire back story.)

Instead, all I have managed to find out is that Date Masamune really needed to spend less time hanging out with Tokugawa Ieyasu. (See last picture. Nikkou, much?) ... Well, actually, I suppose it's their decendants who need to quit hanging out together.

Does this make any sense? Probably not. Will it one day? Possibly.

And my mapping site is down. If I wanna look up if Tohoku-dai is located on Aoba-yama, I am going to have to overcome laziness and actually get up. Life is hard.

There. At least I got some babbling pointlessly in. Even if it isn't the pointless babbling I had intended. Perhaps tomorrow. We shall see.

We shall also see Batman Begins. So perhaps not tomorrow. Especially since I am falling behind on job-related stuffskies. Though at least the kitchen painting project is now mostly complete for the moment.

Edit: Zuihouden homepage Though that guy in the background on the homepage has too many eyes.

psst, datageek, I have a statistics related question.

at what F-test value would you consider two sets of data to be not statistically the same?

and if the F-test value really sucks (like 0.24...I'm given to believe it should be closer to 1) then what other statistical analyses can I do that might give me further support?

background: the two sets of data are from the same samples. 10 samples were tested using two different tests. they were for 1. total fluoride and 2. soluble fluoride. The hypothesis is that the two values should be the same, but because two different methods were used to do it, there are variances in the data that suggest the two are not statistically the same.

Oh, I am going to see Batman Begins with you! But since the evening will be taken up with that, it will not be taken up with surfing the 'net looking for random bits of data.

So, what's the Bat-plan?

I keep seeing "data tsunami" every time I scroll past this post.

... You know me. I would hardly call THAT *points up* to be a "data tusnami" by my standards! :)

Never fear, there will be more to come. (Unless that is cause for fear?)

Go see Mr. and Mrs. Smith, too.

re: Too many eyes: Yeah, I commented to rhylar that it was clearly time for bed since I was making obscure jokes regarding Japanese history that pretty much no one reading would get. I am comforted to know that at least one other person knew what I meant!

So, did Date rock the pirate eyepatch look in life, or did he do the icky empty-socket thing?

Intersting question... The only portrait I seem to have of him depicts him with two eyes. So either he did a false eye, or the portrait took some liberties. Which would be a little odd, considering that Masamune was famous for only having one eye. Though, come to think of it, he lost an eye to smallpox when he was a child. It's entirely possible that he did retain both eyes, just that one was not sighted.

Whenever I see him depicted in dramas, he has an eyepatch. Though that is most likely due to, well, a need for the actor playing him to retain both eyes.
