Submission + - Medical Researcher "Discovers" Integration (

scapermoya writes: A medical researcher, Dr. Tai, published a paper entitled, "A mathematical model for the determination of total area under glucose tolerance and other metabolic curves." In the paper, he describes what is known to most everyone who has taken even the most introductory calculus class as Riemann summation, and passes it off as his own "Tai Method." Better yet, his paper has been cited at least 75 times. Is there no shame?

Submission + - Pirated Copies of 'Splatterhouse' Hit the Net (

An anonymous reader writes: Say you came into possession of a game six months before its release. Would you play it? Sure, most would. You'd probably tell your friends and maybe even blog about it. But given the no-tolerance attitude towards leaks who in their right mind would try to publically sell copies to the world at large? If the game is Namco's Splatterhouse, it seems that one person would.

WorthPlaying writes, "He did not say if the version of Splatterhouse purportedly up for sale was the version developed by the now-defunct Bottlerocket or the version that was retooled by Namco Bandai's Afro Samurai team after it brought the project in-house in February 2009. To prove that he was in possession of a copy of the game, dulledblade also posted a number of screenshots from the unreleased title; each one showed an image of the game and bore a post-it note with his name."
