What you and several other people here fail to grasp is that I never said to teach it in science class. There are other classes far more suitable. If we teach evolution in science, creationism/other origin stories in the suitable class and people can decide to believe in the science or believe in mythology, that's there choice and has no bearing on what you or I do.

Or we could, you know, present both possibilities and let people decide from themselves instead of trying to force one theory or the other down someone's throat. I'd imagine, when presented with the facts, most people would look to science for the answer in this debate, but I don't see the need to force one argument or the other.

Submission + - Apple Complains Samsung's Wireless Patents Limit Competition ( 3

I used to do at minimum 2 hours each way driving across Toronto. Two hours was when conditions were perfect and there was only one or two accidents to slow it down. Anything worse and it easily jumped to 2.5-3 hours. In medium-heavy snowfall 4 hours+ was common. I took a job in Ottawa and now it takes me 5 minutes as well. It's an incredible difference. Well most mornings at least, today traffic was particularly awful because of this: Next job I'm hoping to live within walking distance! We'll see though.

This is true and a fair point, but if people can't be bothered to take a few minutes to understand that by using Facebook even posting things as "private" or using their "private" chat feature, they are giving up whatever they are posting to Facebook, that is there own fault and I have no sympathy for them :) Maybe this sort of thing will even help to increase people's knowledge and people will stop being dumb when using social networks.
