PlantPerson Stephen Hawking (107 comments)

This is slightly off topic, but I hope this technology develops fast enough to get Stephen Hawking some great things before he dies. I'd love to see him given something that would allow him to type letters just by thinking of them.

Facebook Users Get Lower Grades In College

PlantPerson Maybe the smart people don't like it? (284 comments)

I have a high GPA and I choose not to use Facebook because I don't trust the company and dislike many aspects of its structure. Perhaps the correlation is along the lines of the smartest people being the ones who avoid it? (Not to brag of course.) Of course, I don't have a stellar social life, either.

Japanese reactors vs. Chernobyl

PlantPerson PlantPerson writes  |  more than 3 years ago

PlantPerson writes "The Christian Science Monitor has an analysis of the key differences between Japan's reactor crisis and Chernobyl. As it turns out, while Japan's problems are frequently related to Chernobyl by the press, the two disasters have very little in common, and it is unlikely that there will be any real fallout from the meltdown, if it even occurs."
