I think George was being really sarcastic there, you don't get that feeling?
and the response... I think they knew he was being sarcastic with the "talking straight from the shoulder" comment.
or am I just getting this wrong.

I feel like the video could have been titled "The Beauty of Physics" and be just as (if not more) accurate.

Can you use math to understand or further explore other fields? Yes you can!
But just like you can apply math (and say it's beautiful) when it comes to a magnifying glass, a spinning top or an airplane wing, you can also do it to a painting or music.
I don't think it's "valid" to say "English is beautiful because you can translate and read The Odyssey and gain insight from it, but Chinese isn't as beautiful because I don't speak chinese so I can't gain the same type of insight."

agreed... it's clear to me those considering those words are computer illiterate at least if not inept and/or illiterate in general... Anyone wanna "conversate" about this? UGHHH!
If any of those get approved then they should also approve the following:
- Compliterate: computer literate
- Compilliterate: Computer illiterate
- Fumazing: Fun and amazing
- Colorcoded: Something coded with color
- Ikandoodisderp: The act of taking over something others created, and ruining it due to incompetence, idiocy, or ineptitude.

.... what I'm trying to say is that those are contractions, concatenations and truncations of sorts... there is no sense of making a word out of words that already exist.. that's why they exist.

"Americans also work longer hours, making daily food shopping difficult"

I can tell you in many countries the workday spans from 7AM to 10:30PM (namely some in desert climates). Considering most americans are on the proverbial 9 to 5 schedule... I'm gonna say this particular statement above, was pulled out of the proverbial hat.

yep, you got it... just insert that foot in mouth cavity and hold until the next time you feel like pointlessly criticizing.

John has to be polite to you... but I don't.

The book exists to educate those students and also the ones that come after them. By ripping the pages that teacher ensured that scenario wont occur once again. I hope she replaced the book afterwards.

I dunno how long ago this was, but she could just google some art and then print it... no need to destroy anything. I agree with Nikki.

Also, the "souls" of no children will be affected by curiosity and instinctual behavior when exposed to any type of nudity. I can't understand why some people think kids should not be exposed to nudity and sexuality. ITS NOT DIRTY DAMN IT!

If they are old enough to ask, they are old enough to know.

I wonder how they will turn this movie into Narnia...
Yeah.. you may not have realized it until I mentioned it but now you see exactly how Clark was Aslan the lion.
I personally don't appreciate being bombarded with religious propaganda while I watch a sci-fi movie, that's clearly not why I'm at the theatre. In fact it irks me.

I wholeheartedly agree with BeeJay.
It's true that some kids aren't interested in learning, but from what I remember of highschool and college; it was more often than not the bad method or other shortcomings of the teacher that lead to disinterest and not a pre-existing condition.

Presidents, Senators and House Reps. need to be scientists, like Franklin, or Jefferson, or Neil deGrasse Tyson.
Unlike Clinton, Bush, Obama or Johnny Cash.

Government officials need to hold degrees in Agriculture, or Chemistry, or Physics, or Mathematics or Medicine or Economics (philosophy might be acceptable too)
Not on Law or Political-Science.

Some reditor claiming to be a marine biologist says that that is not a bobbit worm and that it's harmless. It does look slightly different than the wikipedia picture...

This! This so much.

This should not even be an issue. If a child is old enough to ask a question, he/she is old enough to get an (truthful) answer. If an adult is not mature enough to deal with reality he/she should stay at home in their fantasy world and not attempt to drag us all into it.

What is wrong with the world, why are there so many imbeciles around?

Evolution and survival of the fittest should take care of the masses of incompetent idiots, but we cater to them, so they survive and they reproduce and they take space and resources. And then when we all struggle, they demand we provide for them.

I am intolerant of stupidity.

New Diseases Coming Soon! Nail biting, farting, shower-phobia, introvertedness, extrovertedness, tallness, shortness, white skin, black skin, low IQ... and more!

Doctors will be forced to tell you you are stupid, smelly or awkward even if we don't have a cure for it and with no regard for offend you or getting paid.

I think some cases are related to disease.. but obesity is not a disease itself.

nothing better than the truth, and science. I hope the parents answered every question she had about it completely and truthfully. :)

who decided that money for academia needs to go to sports? I don't understand why people donate money to a school because of their sports wins/loses. why isn't it Professional Military Football, Professional Police basketball or Pro Social Security Hokey?

I think the answer is because it's not the place for that, the military is a place where people train and defend our freedom, the police are there to protect and serve the law, and well.. you get the point.. why is college not the place to train and develop people's careers? how do "professional" sports fit in there?

I find it repulsive that a sports coach earns more (and that much more) than an academic professor. Salary should be based on merit, not on popularity or need or any other silly lopsided metric they are using now.

I can confirm that this is a fake. Those are Japanese characters there. There is some Kanji but a lot is Katakana (and the majority is gibberish) and while the 2 languages do share Kanji they absolutely do not share Katakana.

Silly joke is silly.

I went to the Link and like others I found the top comment to be more interesting than the actual article there.

I am copying said comment, authored by A_Lee here:
"Not to be a downer, but while you are indeed looking at DNA, you aren't looking at a single strand of DNA. Whoever told you that is mistaken.

If any one is interested in the details, the first image (which looks more like a photograph), is a scanning-electron micrograph (SEM) image. The second, which looks more 2D and grainy, is a transmission-electron micrograph (TEM) image.

First, a description of what you are looking at. You are looking a a bundle of DNA fibers. Their are seven DNA strands, six in a hexagonal wrapping around one core. The reason we know this is because (a) the paper says so, and (b) the strand is far too thick to be one single strand. It's about 20 nanometers thick, which is too thick to be single-strand DNA.

Now, the images.

The SEM image shows the DNA strand suspended over two pillars. It's almost certainly coated with some metal, probably gold-palladium. It's taken at a fairly low resolution, the scale bar is probably in the 1-10 micron range, and the electron beam energy is very low, probably around 1-5keV. At this magnification and this energy level, you cannot actually "see" the DNA strand, anymore than we can "see" stars in the sky. We simply perceive a bright object against a dark background, but we don't have the resolution to distinguish between one star and two stars right next to each other.

The second image is a TEM image. TEM works like a slide projector, shining electrons through the object, and projecting them on the other side. It works with interference patterns (remember, quantum effects dominate here). So it is very good at finding tight periodic structures. In this case, the aligned "curls" of the DNA. What you are seeing is the change in atomic density along the DNA bundle. Imagine a super-long gummy worm that alternates between very short red and green segments. Now put seven of them together in a bundle, making sure that each colored segment matches up. Then step away, and you'll perceive a single, thick, gummy worm with alternating red and green lines. That's what you're seeing here.

Still, imaging organic molecules is always difficult with electron beams, because they tend to fry them. So this is still quite an achievement."

“Do they want people to believe the region has no poor people ...?"
Regardless of whether there are or aren't poor people, being poor doesn't give them the right to bother people. One thing is to be in need and ask for help, but an entirely different is to think you are entitled to other's help and that it's OK to follow around and nagg at people during their leisure time.
