Many scientists and some of [Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Joe] Barton's Republican colleagues say they were stunned by the manner in which the committee, whose chairman rejects the existence of climate change, demanded personal and private information last month from researchers whose work supports a contrary conclusion. The scientists, co-authors of an influential 1999 study showing a dramatic increase in global warming over the past millennium, were told to hand over not only raw data but personal financial information, information on grants received and distributed, and computer codes.Link to Washington Post editorial, via the Blog of the American Constitution Society, which I don't remember not recalling never belonging not to. Also, link to American Association for the Advancement of Science letter to Barton. Look, whatever your view on global warming, Rep. Barton just wants to see whether you can save a bunch of money on your car insurance.
Pottyr and freynd, in't towyr trapp'd,
At mercie of thyss eevil ratte!
What woe! What payn! Unluckiness!
To looke upon poor boye's dystresse.
"Fore all thysse tyme, my plans you've foyled,
Designs divertyd, and schemes despoyled!"
So began the Dark Lorde's awfolle gloatyng,
And standarde badde guy showéboatynge,
"But not todaye, you little shytte!
Payn's true meanynge, thou shalt wytte!"
"You're a goddamn moron, Malfoy," I screamed at him. I was about to hex him, but Ron held me back. He kills me, old Ron, he really does. You'd really like him.
We were somewhere near the edge of Hogwarts when the magic began to take hold, all of a sudden the air was filled with hundreds and thousands of frogs, hopping all over the front of the car and a voice was screaming 'what are these creatures'.
BP: What would you rather have, a car or a cleaner environment?
Retarded Woman: "I would love to have a clean environment but that’s like asking someone to give up chocolate."
In cutting-edge experiments, scientists have injected human brain cells into monkey fetuses to study the effects.
Critics argue that if these fetuses are allowed to develop into self-aware subjects, science will be thrown into an ethical nightmare.
An eminent committee of American scientists will call for restrictions into the research, saying the outcome of such studies cannot be predicted and may in fact produce subjects with a 'super-animal' intelligence.
Link. The most worrisome part is the picture accompanying the story. As Eve Pearl remarked upon seeing post-surgery Joan Rivers, I am not making this up:
Apparently we are supposed to see that cigarette as indicative of humanness. Well I'm not buying that Big Tobacco conspiracy. I've seen the same monkey behavior in Project X.
The White Turkey Drive-In got its name from the White Holland Turkeys that the Tuttles had raised on their turkey farm. They wanted to use the large birds left in the operation, so they used them to make their turkey sandwiches for their new business. Today, turkey sandwiches are still on the menu and still the favorite of many customers. Gary and Peggy Tuttle and five helpers spend the month of February preparing the turkey. Currently, one and a quarter tons of turkey is needed to last the season.
Latest research works conducted in many countries of the globe showed that the IQ level of left-handed people is higher in comparison with the one of right-handed individuals. Every fifth outstanding person is left-handed as a rule. Furthermore, the people who can boast of having extraordinary abilities are left-handed too.
"There are a lot of extrasensorial individuals among them," doctor of medical sciences Alexander Lee said. "We checked the supposition. There are hardly any right-handers among those who have the gift of remote viewing, telepathy, or X-ray viewing," the doctor said.
Right[-] and left-handers are virtually different types of people with their own special mindsets and perception of the world. "They get along with each other perfectly, but there is a hidden evolutionary struggle taking place between them, which reminds [me of] the struggle between primeval humans, Cro-Magnon and Neanderthal men. It seems to me that left-handers will eventually win the fight owing to their anomalous abilities," scientist of anomalous phenomena Pyotr Chereda said.
In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle, Debbie said: "I put my hand over my lower abdomen and said, 'Welcome Home'. They had been in a cold place for so long. Now it was over. Whether God took them to heaven or they became babies, it was OK."
One of the embryos did become a healthy baby - Lania - even though she was born five weeks early.
Debbie said: "I still look at her and can't believe it. I smell her and kiss her and I still can't believe she is here."
