The dataset I’m working on today differentiates between E928.3 (unintentional human bite) and E968.7 (assault by human bite).

Keiko’s landing at Logan as I write this – I’m about to head over to where her hotel is in Cambridge for some dinner or drinks. Very excited she’s coming, my old friends are the best.

Follow-up (2:30pm): It’s now brilliantly sunny out and a balmy 37 degrees. She’s going to be so disappointed when I get home.
Was in Chicago to see KU get hammered by the seriously underwhelming and obnoxiously-mascotted DePaul Blue Demons.

Here is some plausible conspiracy theorism regarding the similarities of Al Qaeda and Isaac Asimov’s Foundation. This was published a couple of years ago but it’s the first I’ve heard of it so I feel compelled as always to further spread tempting misinformation… Bookninja
