|Inactivity rate: U.S. males, aged 25-54, not in the workforce.|
Wyoming Man Had Eyeballs Stored in His Anus (crazed.com) Bovine, not human. But still: "Police made a routine traffic stop early Thursday morning and got more than they bargained for when Roy Tilbott, 51, stepped out of his El Camino for a field sobriety test and Casper Police noticed several eyeballs slide from his right pant leg onto the road." Greatest, opening, sentence, ever.

Why French Kids Don't Have ADHD (psychologytoday.com).
The U.S. will soon spend $1 out of every $5 on health care (cnbc.com) and yet we rank 49th in life expectancy, and we're tied with Slovakia for infant mortality.
The fix for police brutality may be to hire more female officers (WaPo).

9 alarming quotes from Twitter's earnings call that have Wall Street spooked (businessinsider.com). My favorite is: "Simply said, the product remains too difficult to use." Really? Twitter is too hard to use?

Have you checked out my free book Mental Health Myths Debunked? Tons of info, tons of live links, lots of straight talk about depression, meds, therapy, psychiatry, mental health trends, statistics, and more (documented, with links to sources). And you know me, I call bullshit on bogus ideas (then give URLs to the actual data). The idea that antidepressants take weeks to do anything? Myth. Most people benefit from antidepressants? Myth. Antidepressants separate from placebo in clinical trials? Largely myth. (Half the trials show separation. Half don't.) Electroshock therapy is safe and effective? Bigtime myth. But don't take my word for it: Read the science for yourself. It's all laid out (with references) in the book. Download ePub or PDF now at NoiseTrade. Tell a friend.
