Classy facepalm

Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on PainScience.com are updated regularly over the years.

Photo of a classy statue doing a “facepalm” of disbelief.
This is not a statue of a “facepalm,” per se — but it sure works that way.

The statue is actually a depiction of “Cain After Killing His Brother Abel,” by Henri Vidal, and it is found in the Tuileries Garden in Paris. But this photographic framing, however, is perfectly suited to a snarky modern interpretation! Photo by Alex E. Proimos, who graciously allows usage with attribution… so today I added it to three articles around PainScience.com where a “classy facepalm” seemed appropriate: sh*t massage therapists say, therapy babble, and applied kinesiology. Plenty of call for facepalming.

This is the MICROBLOG: small posts about interesting stuff that comes up while I’m updating & upgrading dozens of featured articles on PainScience.com. Follow along on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS. Sorry, no email subscription option at this time, but it’s in the works.
