Comment Why not? (Score 3, Insightful) 726

I'm going to be downmodded to death, but isn't science about keeping an open mind? Here in my country school curricula are rigid, limited and biased government mandated crap. As long as the teacher doesn't lie/make things up, teaching the kids to question everything and see both sides of an issue will only do them good. The intelligent ones will eventually make their own decision about who's right or wrong, and the stupid ones will believe what they'll believe anyway...

One thing to be careful with, though - Their advertised "limited stock - 3 to 5 days delivery" isn't quite true right now, at least in europe. I've been waiting for my latest order for two weeks - They said something about delivery problems. Maybe it's the weather, I hear it's been pretty bad up north.
