Amateur scientist and part-time Science Museum of Minnesota employee, Mark Ryan, announced today that Buzz contributor JGordon is totally insane. Ryan said his conclusion is based mainly on JGordon's recent post regarding a Russian vodka pipeline, but also admitted that some of JG's previous blog postings were involved in the study.

"All the evidence seems to point to the fact that the guy's not playing with a full bag of jacks," Ryan said.

JGordon (Gordonoseus fruitloopius) is a species of humanoid that exists mostly in the Blogosphere and is rarely seen in nature, although there have been some unsubstantiated sightings of the creature loitering in front of museum vending machines. But even then it's not easy to know for sure if it's the real JGordon or a cleverly disguised extraterrestrial wingnut.

The results of Ryan's study appear in today's issue of Science Buzz.

Please don't let my mom see this. I've got her convinced that I'm in law school, and this would just break her heart.

You need to be like Max Klinger in M*A*S*H and go take a ton of photos of you at a law school that you can occasionally send your mom periodically to keep the dream alive!

You might be fooling Thor with this "mom" stuff but I'm not falling for it.

Certainly the time spent, and quality invested, by JGordon into bringing us his observations is the real-life equivalent of at least two or three law degrees. Hopefully his mother would never try to confine him by such a conventional interpretation of understanding as "degrees." We like to see open minds, not more Matlocks!

Yes, but we don't want minds that are so open the brains fall out.
