Holy crap, I thought this guy was just a nursery tale. Turns out he was very real after all.

And what was the version we were all taught in school? That he wanted to spread healthy, delicious apples across the USA! Nope, sorry kids, he wanted to make booze. I like the story better now that I know the truth.

During Prohibition, apple trees that produced sour, bitter apples used for cider were often chopped down by FBI agents, effectively erasing cider, along with Chapman's true history, from American life. "Apple growers were forced to celebrate the fruit not for its intoxicating values, but for its nutritional benefits," Means writes, "its ability, taken once a day, to keep the doctor away..." In a way, this aphorism—so benign by modern standards—was nothing less than an attack on a typically American libation.


Now we also know the source for "an apple a day keeps the doctor away", not such a benign phrase either, it seems.

These guys logged how they repaired a very old, but still up-to-date, metrology grade DMM. Kirk should love this one. :D

Statistics certainly can be abused. My college statistics professor spent an entire week of the semester going over what to look out for when reviewing studies.
