Message 9081:Hello everyone, I love art and how it has always given us the opportunity to state our social views. Through out times artist have rendered beautiful works of art with their underlying views of social injustice. Artist such as Fernando Botero, Goya, and J.M.W. Turner have demonstrated that their canvases are naked space and they can voice out the ugliness in society masked by impressive color and form. I really was captivated by Turner's, The Slave Ship, and how he critiqued the inhumane way that slave traders were throwing African slaves overboard in order to collect insurance money for goods lost at sea. The beauty of the painting does not hide the terror that is depicted on the lower right hand corner were you can see shackled limbs being devoured by sea creatures. We were also given the opportunity to do the same with our boxes and cards. It was a great experiance and I have learned a lot with it.
Reply:Yes, the Slave Ship is wonderful. I'm glad I was able to link art to statistics. In linking your love of art to statistics, you've done a good job with "their canvases are naked space and they can voice out the ugliness in society masked by impressive color and form."Message - lost number, sorry

Reply:. . . asking me about pain that I had two years ago. I couldn't relate well to retrieving that infomration for him accurately, and even when he asked me to gauge current pain I had a hard time because I am used to a certain amount so what used to be a 6 is now a 4. The people in the article that reported pain reduction may be reporting the same "number", but may have a differing tolerance so the data would be relative. That would make accurate reporting to regression to the mean as a whole group difficult and maybe even difficult indiviually, if they like I lose some of the rememberance of the severity of pain after the fact. I guess I want to ask you if it is possible to accurately record pain data? and if so how?
Reply:No, it's not. Pain is socially constructed, as well as physiologically constructed. If you have lived without pain, even a little may not be acceptable. But, as you say, if you have had pain, you may adjust to a different standard, depending on your own situatedness. Good response.
