Random roundup V

I have a visiting scholar from Yale scheduled to arrive in a couple of hours, but in the meantime I would like to throw some stuff at you:

Spring break in Ibiza (one possible destination for my soon-to-be married friend's last spring break as a single woman)

Hot or not? An analysis of 1-10 rating scales by Glen Whitman. (BTW, that Dudley Moore movie bites)

More informative than three seasons of Oz: this post on prison guards.

And an anonymous poster at Clearly Erroneous relates the tale of a wealthy acquaintance who received hGH treatment and ended up with an endowment proportional to his family fortune. Side effects of hGH do include "swelling of the soft tissues in the body" and "abnormal growth of the hands, feet and face." Yowsa.
