How on earth did this get +2 "Interesting"? The ravings of a madman (Really! No mixed-fibre clothing! No shellfish! No shaving of any part of the head! And Heathens are perfectly fine to buy as slaves. And let's not forget "An eye for an eye") whose ideas of morality and correctness were way out of line when the "Good Book" was written (4-legged insects are unclean! As is pretty much everything else, ever!) has precisely what bearing on our lives?
If you want to live by the rules Leviticus (and most of the rest of the Old Testament) dictates, do feel free. I'm sure such draconian dictates will ensure you die an early death as you struggle to deal with impossible to live up to standards, "Original Sin", and pre-medieval healthcare (Really! Even Obamacare is better than the crap in Leviticus for dealing with illness!).
Of course, there is always the possibility that you are merely trying to force your ideals down everyone else's throat, and grabbing the very first passage from the very worst parts of John's Book of Ravings that enables you to take a supposedly pious and "Enlightened" stance on something that has been socially acceptable since at least 800BC.
Or you're a troll, using a quasi-religious stance to get a rise out of the
Ob*duct"\, v. t. [See Obduce.] To draw over; to cover. [Obs.]
So this isn't made up (At least, not by Cyan) at all. Perhaps you should endeavour to expand your vocabulary somewhat. Or, to put it in terms you might more easily understand: "Use dictionary, learn words, speak better."
Time flows the same in England as it does in the US, and they get the information at the same instant as the US (Barring marginal transmission delays). If it was a case of hours and timezones, I might agree with you somewhat, but as the freakin' summary quotes: "During an experiment in late September," (Emphasis mine).
Even assuming that means September 30th, that's 7 days the US press has had to sit on this. At that point, the fact that the UK is 5-7 hours ahead doesn't make an iota of difference (Well, technically I guess it makes 4.1666% of difference, but that's hardly the point).
Oh, and why is <sup> getting stripped out of
If anyone wants a stylish patch for the changes I've made, let me know.
