"Now that I'm in law school"...

Maybe law is one of those special places where the dichotomy falls apart. To be completely honest, my experience (through high school, college, and even into my professional life) have been nearly the opposite of yours. I think the socially adept, athletic, outgoing yet book-smart intellectual individual is much more of the exception. I know 1 person that truly fits that description.

Check out Virtual Account Numbers - I think Citibank offers these. They are one-time use, throw away credit card numbers. I use them for virtually all online purchase along with purchases from entities I don't trust. The US Government would definitely go into that category.

Comment Slashdot Drift? (Score 4, Insightful) 823

It's been interesting to track the Global Warming/Climate Change drift over the years on Slashdot. A couple years ago, it seemed prevailing opinion (measured by high moderation scores and # of comments) favored the "consensus" Anthropogenic Global Warming view of the scientific community.

However, looking at the more recent global warming related threads, the posts moderated with 5's seem to be more and more in the "Open-minded but skeptical" camp regarding the "consensus" view.

Is this due to a miscalibration in the sensors, or are we talking about a real opinion shift here?!?
