Your Middle Of The Week Thread

Hoo boy, it's been a while since I was in school.  Seven years, in fact, since I graduated with my BA in 2001.  And here I am again, sitting in class, raising my hand, pouring over books and handouts and desperately trying to study whenever I get a free second.  It's going to be a long three and a half years.

Now, as for the hockey world, the Avalanche front office continues to be quiet, and there has been no news about Joe Sakic or Mats Sundin or any of the other at-least-somewhat-notable free agents out there floating around. Not much else is going on, either.  Well, Puck Daddy is playing host to a battle royale between Ross McKeon and Ted Leonsis that's humorous if only because Yahoo! commentators seem to be the most negative, contrary people on the planet.

Oh, and there's a new study that suggests face width has something to do with aggressive behavior in men. 

Canadian scientists investigated photos of pro and varsity hockey players, measuring how wide and long their faces were. They found the wider that faces looked, the more aggressive players were, as measured by the number of penalty minutes they accrued, which are handed out for aggressive behavior.

I'm not sure how many of you have experience setting up scientific experiments or have knowledge of the concepts of correlation and causation, but if you can find a more asinine waste of grant money, please let me know.  Good god.
