allow them to prove whether extra-dimensions exist.

Isn’t this where John Smallberries and John Big Booty came from?

Please tell me people have seen that magnificent movie.

Oh hell yeah! I even made an all Warlock guild in “World of Warcraft” called “The Hongkong Cavaloors” with only 5 Gnome Warlocks in it named after the members of the band.

I was trying to multi-box 5 accounts at once in dungeons. That was a lot of fun for a while.

Those that can, do.
Those that can’t, teach.
Those that can’t teach, administrate.
Those that can’t administrate, major in journalism.

Boyd Dunkin (#4):I take relief in knowing Morgan Freeman doesn’t understand everything he says on that show either.

He knows more about this science than he does about politics, apparently.

I love the man’s skills as an actor and narrator.

Yeah, that’s right, let’s just see if we can open the door to Thirdspace; we’re ready for whatever comes through.

Will the occupants of that planet think we just attacked them and come to wipe us out?

Maybe we’ll have to build thousands of these things…just to be safe.

They do (I’ve offered to review articles for accuracy every time I’ve talked to a journalist), but standard journalistic practice does not permit the subject of an interview to vet the article for accuracy.

While perhaps understandable when covering politics or crime, this practice doesn’t serve science reporting well.

I’m pretty sure the German professor said, or meant, pairs of particles not molecules. Isn’t it the journalist’s job to catch or correct that? How about a brief paragraph describing virtual particles? Fucking dead tree “science” journalists. Things like virtual particles and Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle are way beyond their meager knowledge of the science they make ghastly attempts to report on.
