asteroid impacts are not an irrational fear

I am afraid of getting hit by lightning, and getting bit by a shark, but not so afraid that I won't walk in the rain or swim in the ocean. I just take reasonable precautions.

That's the difference between a rational fear and an irrational fear.

From what I can see, you'd think WND was too liberal.

It's been a *long* time since I read WND, and even then didn't read it that much. All I really remember was lots of ads for books about Israel. From your comment, though, it seems that WND is far right.

So, what do you see that makes you think that I'm farther than far right?

(cleavage) their full potential

Since big tits and deep cleavage do not correlate -- or, if they do, it's negative -- with the skills needed in STEM, your argument is flawed into Wrongness.

(Though they are positively correlated for jobs like direct sales, especially in "manly" industries like construction, shipping, etc. I've seen it with my own eyes.)

I'm still waiting for the advent of the computer science groupie.
