Otherwise known as the Quip Thread, the idea is to resist the temptation to ramble, as easy as it is to do on this forum, and to exercise that “muscle in your brain” that God gave you for summarizing as succinctly as possible your over-all thoughts and feelings on a topic of your choice, in a single sentence, making each entry unique and unrelated to any above, so as not to devolve down that slippery slope of discussion and argument, which is antithetical to the point of the thread, that being to sum-it-up-and-be-done-with-it, whatever it is, bearing in mind it is the short, pithy, catchy, all-encompassing observation we are after here, not the long-winded, run-on, Hemmingway-esque sentence with multifarious serpentine subordinate clauses and obtuse, dangling prepositions and parenthetical counterpoints, such as this one, never forgetting that each entry must begin and end—no wait, scratch that last part—with the title of the thread itself.

All I’m saying is…keep it short.

There, someone had to say it, and I'm glad, glad I tell you, that it was yours truly because of a veritable multitude of reasons, each too lengthy and mutifaceted in nature to explain in a befitting manner in the all too little time that I have to post this brief reply, and time is a very precious quantity, indeed, and should not be squandered in idle amusements such as trivial Internet forum games, but fear not, for someday I will return, this is my pledge to you gentle readers, and reveal in exquisite detail all that needs to be said about this important, nay all important, topic.

Most car engines operate at peak efficiency at about 3,000 rpm, and throttle about 3/4 open, which will get you going pretty fast out-of-the-hole.

From the article

The findings, published in the Journal of American Geriatrics Society, are in line with research suggesting that moderate exercise can help battle depression. However, the link between neighborhood “walkability” and lower depression risk was not fully explained by higher exercise levels.

“That tells us that there’s something else about the neighborhood itself,” said lead study author Dr. Ethan M. Berke, of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire.

mr obvious
2007-May-12, 12:50 AM
From the article

Fair, but then later in the article:

The study findings do not prove that a person’s neighborhood changes his depression risk, Berke pointed out.

Therefore, what they are saying is they don't know anything. They looked at walkability, and found that it had an effect. They then stated that the walkability factor could not completely explain the decrease in depression symptoms. They then conclude, with no other [provided] evidence, that there must be something else in the neighborhood. Why the neighborhood? Yes, they accounted for gender, exercise, diet, smoking, presence of radioactive squirrels, etc. but they likely couldn't account for everything - the water quality, precipitation/sunlight, etc. which don't have anything to do with the neighborhood per se and that they presumably didn't account for (if they did, they sure didn't say so).

Since they don't have any direct evidence (at least, it's not apparent from the article) that "there’s something else about the neighborhood itself," all I'm saying is that all the article can conclude is that walking decreases depression symptoms. If they want to be adventurous, they can add that there is something else happening in their tests they can't explain, but they shouldn't narrow it down to the neighborhood unless they can demonstrate that that is what it is. Perhaps I should read the actual study instead of the news report.
