Of course you do. It was a stupid question.
But it needs to be asked now and again.

I'm experiencing some mahor cognitive dissonance, and since I know that it's happening, I'm having fun seeing my brain jump around and act all twitchy.
Basically, the sports team I've given my tribal allegience to has been accused of cheating, and there appears to be evidence to back it up. Because I give weight to the concept of fairness, my morals are in conflict with my tribe. It's really fascinating to see what's my mind's been doing.
- Deny that it even happened. "There's no way they could have had the opportunity."
- Even if it did happen, it's not cheating because it wasn't utilized. "The game was won on the ground, and Brady had one of his worst passing games all season."
- We didn't win by cheating, the other team lost by poor play. "Their defense sucked, and their offensive line was non-existent."
And in a very clever turnaround, pretending to appeal to fairness itself. "Did the officials check the other team's equipment too, or just ours?"
The thing is, I know how this works, and in all likelyhood even if they are found guilty of cheating, the emotional tribal affiliation will beat out the intellectual morality, and I'll go on being a fan. Brains are weird.
That does sound crazy busy. George is going on a study abroad in Costa Rica. He's also thinking of hitting up Cuba to compare insect species, now that we're reopening diplomatic relations. Gotta say, I'm a bit jealous.
The thing I would be doing is basically monitoring bacterial population changes in my mouth with the use of mouthwash, both in numbers over the course of the day and in species that make it in there.
That does sound interesting. If you do it I'll be curious about the results.
Cardiologist shot by son of former patient. Cardiologist in OR, gunman committed suicide. Hospital operations back to normal.
Like, I know it's a horrible scam that's ruined the lives of many people, but it's done so well I have to applaud.
Every thread ends up at squid fucking
No, that's for a hypothesis which is demonstrably incorrect, but still gets trotted out anyway
A hypothesis that can't be tested is called "unfalsifiable""What can go wrong" most of the time isn't some sort of horrible 100 meter tall spider. Usually it results in something that just can't survive.
As a huge nerd I feel compelled to point out that the 100 meter spider probably couldn't survive either. It's weight would scale up disproportionally to the strength of it's muscles or the structural integrity of it's exoskeleton.
Also, going back to big bang related stuff, has anybody else thought about the possibility that the big bang was the result of a Big Rip in a previous universe, or rather from the effect of the big rip on a hadron in that universe?
When the repulsive force of dark energy began to rip its component quarks apart it would instead be converted into a prodigious quantity of matter due to Color Confinement
Bothered you that much, huh?
Genetically modified to produce a graphene exoskeleton. Boom.
But isn't there also the problem of respiration with arthropods? IE the bigger they get the less efficiently they can respire?
