Age reversal won't happen to everyone right away... you know who gets it first right... you betcha... the $$$ crowd. So think about it, you've amassed this giant fortune, and NOW you get to enjoy it forever and ever and ever.... meanwhile, all those who slaved to created that wealth, well... they just get to wither and die, leaving a dwidling population to be slaves to the ultra wealthy.

If this weren't conspiracy theory kind of stuff it would be downright scary!

Comment Distribution of Information (Score 1) 260 260

Gosh people believed what a scientist had to say... WHAT A STORY... next thing you know people will be taking their doctors advice! Scientists by and large are a trusted segment of the public, with the public having an understanding of the scientific process and that scientists CAN be wrong. That's how our information works. Researchers do experiments and publish results. News outlets pick up stories and broadcast them to a wider audience. If this disinformation had been allowed to just stand on it's own merits, it would eventually fall flat on its face as other scientists put the information to the test. The only thing this journalist accomplished was damaging the credibility of scientists! *DING* I think we have our motive.

most incidents of wrongful imprisonment involve police investigators and prosecutors, both of which are heavily protected against any charges of wrongful imprisonment, malicious prosecution, and the like.

Maybe that's the part that needs to change. Take away some of those protections and then maybe you'll have prosecutors who will place the truth over their own careers.

No he wouldn't be wrong, but a better question to be studied would be "Would two male scientists doing the same research have their paper challenged in the same fashion?" because if you eliminate enough variables you have a higher probability of coming up with the correct answer.
