Thu Feb 21, 2013
I'm a big fan of science ... except when it's rushed to the presses in an effort to scare up some more funding. This "experiment" was performed on post-mortem tissue samples from Brodmann area 44 - which *may* involve phonological and syntactic processing.

Afraid of lightning strike, New Jersey teen jumps from chairlift

Seriously, why does it not say in the article that she was at NO risk of being electrocuted because she was NOT grounded. That is a very dangerous lie of omission. What a horribly written, ill-conceived article. It looks like this was "staff written" meaning someone should have caught this. What a b …

"The United States also has mooted military action as a last-resort option." "Mooted" means made doubtful, or unlikely, which is not a synonym of "hinted." This is the best Reuters and AP can do in tandem? Big book on your desk? Not a paperwieght. It's a dictionary. Learn to love it.

Robin Steele and skor154: Which generation are you discussing: the generation III reactors, of which there are a handful in existence, or the generation IV reactors, which exist only on paper? If the former, then there are plenty of ways these could go critical, including a repeat of the circumstanc …

Wait, what was that Silverton? As THOUSANDS of years go by? Are you suggesting that the Theory of Evolution involves THOUSANDS of years? Try billions. Thousands as a time scale for evolution and the age of the Earth was discarded hundreds of years ago based on how long it takes for sediment to be la …
