What people really look like 

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

Dale Favier, massage therapist, poet, and Facebook chum of mine for some time now, has a nice article about the beauty of bodies that’s going viral right now. It’s a quick, uplifting read:

Because, of course, what we see in magazines and movies aren’t really people anymore, but skilfully lit and pixel-manipulated artwork — beautiful in their own way, of course, or why bother? But they are only distant, abstract cousins to homo sapiens. In all my years massaging, I never experienced a client as “ugly.” It just isn’t possible when you’re actually paying attention to the person.

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.
