Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I'm going to make a guess here. No academic would leave that line right in the middle of their paper, and there is no way that the fire-breathing peer reviewers would let it slip. It was probably a comment left in one version of the document that was incorrectly transferred into the text of the final copy. When you have a million versions of closed-source MS Office files floating around, this shit happens. Another reason to use open formats.
Imagine if the opposite was true; if complete neglect and institutionalization was good for kids. Now that would be a real finding.

What are some of the best astronomy-specific news sites? I know that each individual agency has their own news sites, but would like to find a site that gathers everything in one place.
Pick a system that relates to you and your friends' nostalgic gaming eras: NES, Genesis, N64, etc. Track down a nice console for cheap on craigslist, and then just buy an Everdrive for it. The Everdrive is a flash cart that allow you to jack up an SD card with roms and play them on the real hardware. For the price of five to ten common games, you could instead buy an Everdrive and have every game ever made.
I personally avoid subjecting friends to Atari or emulated games.
