House MD and Don Burleson

On an episode of House this year, a guy and his girlfriend both vegans come in to the hospital to find out why the boyfriend’s bowel movements float. House explains that he is cheating “with another food group” and that his movements float because they are filled with fat from eating hamburgers.

This was an epiphany for me. For years I wondered how Don Burleson postings on Oracle Technology are top listings on Google searches when there are no links to the pages (using the google advanced search option you can find pages that link to a given page). Burleson is a clown of the first order. His technical advice is less than worthless, it is often dangerously wrong. If you are an Oracle professional you must expunge information you “learned” from Don Burleson’s postings and books.

If you are not an Oracle professional I won’t bore you with the details.

Anybody who’s blog slogan is “You have the right to my opinion” certainly has an inflated opinion of himself.

Now check out his posting on company dress code the number #1 result on a google search for the same. Maybe he is just a comedian, which would be fine, but this is also the host site for Rampant Press which publishes scores of books on technology.

In any event, I now know why his postings float to the top.
