The data further show that the majority of US adults (69%) know that piracy is illegal. Interestingly, this also means that a large chunk of the population believes that they're doing nothing wrong.
No. That means 31% of the population doesn't know the law, which is a little hard to believe.
Knowing that it's illegal and believing that you're doing something wrong are completely different issues.
Lesbian sharks are always relevant.
Would that be a bull shark?
Why does it have a boob-powered flux capacitor?
That article does a lot of assertion without much in the way of persuasion or offering an alternative model. It's got an interesting premise - that describing the brain in terms and metaphors that come from computing may obscure rather than illuminate its functioning - but the few examples given weren't persuasive.
Being outraged by imaginary problems and not bothering to confirm anything before seems to be the new norm. You'll fit right in.
No, the problem was the summary: "The phones are attractive because they contain no bloatware, competing services, and a lack of software and security updates"
Parallel construction grammar fail. That should have read, "The phones are attractive because they contain no bloatware, no competing services, and won't lack software and security updates." The summary meant to negate all three parts.
"This shit will make you taste colors."

Let's not forget the effect of helicobacter pylori bacteria on ulcers, they are in general held to be the main cause these days.
I have another theory about the beneficial effect of aspirin, caffine, etc. We evolved with them. Our diet was rich in salycilates and chemicals similar to theobromine or caffine. They came from the plants we ate, some of which were mildly toxic and which we evolved to process to the point that we became dependent on some of their effects. There are a lot of things in the primitive diet that modern people don't eat much at all, like acorns which had to be soaked to remove alkalai and tannin.
If this is the case, taking aspirin and drinking coffee or tea replace substances found in a more primitive diet.
