Gut Rumbles

where would we be without researchers?

It's happened to me, many times. Now I know why, thanks to research.

Just reading the damned article stuck a worm in my brain. Now I've got B.J. Thomas singing "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" over and over again. I want to kill either myself or B.J. Thomas.

Thanks a lot, Dartmouth.


research pays my rent :)

Yeah, great. Thanks a lot, Rob.

Now raindrops are falling in my brain.

Could be worse, though. One time, I had the song "What a Wonderful World" stuck in my head - except Louis Armstrong wasn't singing it. Sidney Greenstreet was. Now, that's sick.

I had the '50's hit "Jimmy Jimmy Coco Pop" or 'Shimmy Shimmy Coco Bop" in my head for many years. I still don't know which lyric is right. I suspect Manchurian Candidate style brainwashing gone wrong.

Ellison needs many years of therapy.

for me it's often Jingle Bells or Small World...

Here's one for ya that rarely fails.

"Havin' my baby, what a wonderful way of saying how much you love me....."

So why doesn't this happen with all familiar songs, and why don't you have to even hear the ones which stick for this to start up again? Did you know the sound of "Government Grant" produces salivation and orgasms in Researchers [obviously] without any cortex activity at all?
