Please explain how this hypothesis fits with the observed effects of breaking a magnet in half, and with related theories of electromagnetism.

Magtonians are not gay however

Are you proposing this as an explanation as to why we have not been able to obtain evidence of monopoles?

So they were wrong in their hypothesis that these 69 sites on the genome are related to intelligence. This does not mean that other sites on the genome aren't related to intelligence.

On top of that, the three gene locations that did seem to have a stronger correlation weren't involved in development of the nervous system.

So they really don't have complete knowledge of this extremely complex system. Not surprising. Time to review their assumptions, and come up with a new hypothesis to test. They still gained knowledge (what doesn't work), it's just not the knowledge they were hoping for.

There has been a very impressive list of tech or geek related guest star appearances on the show (Stan Lee, Stephen Hawking, Neil deGrasse Tyson, ...).

Do you have any control over who guest appearances are written for?

Are there any tech related people who you would like to have on the show as a guest star, but have been unable to get?

Say you had a legit bad experience there- so you wait the week or so until they return your deposit to unleash your torrent of critical reviews, or start burning through the deposit while you're still there.

If your experience there was so bad that you can't wait a week to post the review you should probably be talking to a lawyer first anyway.
