.... more than one might think. A relative in the Army was threatened off the books with hell to pay if he didn't take Larium. He protested personally to his boss because of the psychological issues Larium can cause (I'm sorry I don't know military ranks) but found no sympathetic ears. So he decided to give in and make no formal complaint. After taking Larium regularly for a year or two, he was in the Middle East working on a vehicle and had a massive seizure. He also then discovered that the Larium had reacted with a particular genetic condition to make him permanently sterile. So now he can't have kids, although he wants them badly, and has had migraines and balance problems since. He is a very honorable person, and since he was a career guy, he never sued, even though his genetic condition was on file, and there was obvious medical malpractice. He was close to retirement when it happened, and he just wanted to get out as smoothly as possible.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I understand your point, but having grown up in the South, I can tell you that it is quite obviously the case there.
If you wish to believe in magic, ghosts, and demons, you are free to do so. Your childish beliefs should not be basis for science education in a country with established freedom of religion.
Yes. But I rarely see Jews pushing this silliness. Always seems to be Christians.
I wish I could mod you up about 5 points. This is exactly the point.
Specifically, the term "creationism" is inadequate. What we really mean here is "Christian creationism." That puts a finer point on it, and lets everyone in the conversation know exactly what we mean. I think it even exposes the proponents of it to some enlightenment on what they're really saying.
I think an argument has more weight when you say, "Do you mean to tell me that you want Christian creationism taught instead of evolution? Do you think other religions' creationist ideologies should be taught as well?"
From now on, every time I get caught up in this argument, I will use the term, "Christian creationism," and not just "creationism."
Samsung on Tuesday presented the jury with videotaped testimony from Roger Fidler, head of the digital publishing program at the University of Missouri. In his testimony, Fidler stated that he began work on a tablet design in 1981. “Apple personnel were exposed to my tablet ideas and prototypes,” he testified, adding that Apple staff saw his designs in the mid-1990s."

Heh. I guess 5 years for my current Slashdot ID isn't very long.
"The fact that the assets are in the name of Megaupload rather than its founder is of no consequence, the government claimed," will probably not work. Golly, I've been waiting a long, long time to make an IANAL comment on Slashdot.
"If that's a bet, I'll take it."
Really? Amazon already gets 5k-10k from me a year. If this pans out, they'll probably get double that. That's real money that is no longer going to other businesses.
Um no, dude, you don't really get it. If Yellowstone blows, there is no volcano eruption in human history that even remotely comes close. Mt. St. Helens would look like a fart standing next to Chernobyl. Areas 400 miles away would get covered in a foot of ash. There is just nothing like it.
Here is a nice, graphical link for you to look at:
The number of deaths could be staggering. That foot of ash, even 400 miles away in Denver, would collapse most roofs, and any with people in them would get severely injured or die. It would be the end of the U.S. as a global superpower, and there would be wars. You are naive.
