Student Googles Himself, Finds He's Accused of Murder 184 184

University of Florida student Zachary Garcia was more than a little surprised to find out he was wanted for murder after Googling his name. It turns out the police were looking for a different man but had mistakenly used Garcia's photo. From the article: "Investigators originally released a driver's license photo of Zachary Garcia — spelled with an 'A' — but it was Zachery Garcia — spelled with an 'E'— who was charged in connection with the crime."

Actually, I protest. About any decent physics department on earth has more people not working on string theory than people who do. Heck, I even know some universities that don't have string theory group.

Problem is that the other fields are far more difficult to explain and draw little to no attention.
