@lexfri If you dial-in to a lot from your iPhone, you might want to check out an app called Tempo. It's pretty good at automated PIN input.
@benjaminchapman wah wah wah wah. Pppppttthhh. 👎@benjaminchapman I totally want to write this paper with you. If you're willing to share the data I can do the first pass at data analysis.@benjaminchapman how many samples did you test last year?@benjaminchapman have you done this in past years as well?@benjaminchapman I have a half thought out piece on a whole bunch of pH and water activity measurements we did on low sugar jam.@benjaminchapman could this data be publishable in an extension type article?

I'm a "normal", so calibrate accordingly, I'm thinking 5 to 10 times "normal".@peds_id_doc they ask permission before biting?@benjaminchapman any idea if criminal charges are typical down under?

The weird thing is that people likely to say this will in the next breath tell you numeric data is all constructed and full of bias anyway.
Retweeted by Don SchaffnerI also like "Has anyone looked at ...", said in a way that implies data is just lying around the place, like a relaxed dog.
Retweeted by Don SchaffnerThe number of people who think "Someone should do this" is an actual method of data collection never fails to surprise.

That can’t be right.@barfblog fuuuuuck.So @johnroderick, how many normal humans equals one @siracusa?@hotdogsladies @johnroderick I can’t stop laughing but I’m honestly not familiar with either one.I have a confession to make: when a recipe calls for garlic, I immediately double the amount. At least double.

@smashedgoods @benjaminchapman @barfblog I would disagree. To be a good scientist you need to be a good writer, or at least hire one.@benjaminchapman All good scientists are writers. Not all good writers are scientists. Cc: @barfblog.Go ahead, make - it a lot of fun. #iOS8moviequote
