I was looking into the possibility a couple of months back. Best info I got was "eat lots of plants" Ssrsly. Diet is much more plant filled now. Effects are slight but noticable. All positive.
I know you said that you wouldn't tolerate excuses, but I have a real good one.

Another one for the list then. Sinister forces is already on it but should really be moved up. Between that and the other thread here they're clearly worth a read.
From the second quote:QuoteThe victim must lodge a complaint within ‘thirty days’ of the crime. Failure to do so will mean the victim’s automatic excommunication. As the victim was often a young child, that particular directive beggars belief. The alleged perpetrator was able to ‘be transferred to another assignment unless the Ordinary of the place has forbidden it’. Both the perpetrator and the victim are ordered to observe ‘perpetual silence’, under pain of excommunication.
There's so much horror there it's difficult to quantify it. There's no logical way this makes sense unless you're trying to explicitly protect the accused over the victims. Adding the excommunication angle is just stunning for a variety of reasons. The first one that mainly comes to mind is how well ingrained the Catholic world view gets, well, beaten mainly, into folk so that carries serious heft.
As far as the numbers go, it seems 2% is rather optimistic, 4-6% would seem to be closer from what the other sources quoted indicate. I wonder if anyone's going to have the decency to give the Pope these facts and let him know the problem seems to be at least twice as bad as he thinks.
It doesn't look good for Lombardi either. If that "Promotion for avoidance" policy is accurate, the chances of these people being cardinals or holding a range of senior positions seems likely. At least we can be confident that any such people in such positions will obviously be fully co-operative with any investigation.
So, problems ahoy for the next decade at least.
PD, let me ask you something.
What the bloody fuck has happened to you? You're being trolled, SUCCESSFULLY, by a guy who accidentally outed his own alt in 30 minutes. I HAVE HAD PIZZA DELIVERIES TAKE LONGER THAN THAT.
That time has passed. The current mode of power cannot be altered via beheadings like a sovereign power could. There will never be another guillotine style revolution in the west, and the reasons for that are buried in the French and American revolutions.
The measurements, created by the use of short pulse lasers and bioluminescent proteins, are made in femtoseconds, which is one millionth of one billionth of a second. A femtosecond, compared to one second, is about the same as one second compared to 32 million years.
That's a pretty fast shutter speed, and it should change the way biological research and physical chemistry are being done, scientists say.
