Real guitar IS a smash at parties--when done properly. That's actually a pretty decent reason to play guitar, believe it or not. And arguably, real guitar is much more fun. For the record...there are people who play guitar hero just as religiously as many play real guitar. Why not choose the one that's actually..y'know...profitable, portable, real, entertaining to those that are watching?

Assuming that this goes through, what will they do next? Teach that tectonic plates don't really exist, and all continents have always been exactly as they are? Or, more specifically, teach that all scientific theories are flawed, and have no basis, or place in the school curriculum? After they finish all that, they can tell us that all conclusions we make are false, because proof is provided. Damn.

SpuriousLogic writes "Astronomers have discovered a planetary system orbiting a distant star which looks much like our own. They found two planets that were close matches for Jupiter and Saturn orbiting a star about half the size of our Sun. Martin Dominik, from St Andrews University in the UK, said the finding suggested systems like our own could be much more common than we thought."
