Exposing the Link Between Cell Phones and Fertility

dbolger Re:ruined (112 comments)

Not really. If journalists don't even bother to look the topic up on Google and find this story, it proves the point.

How Students Use Wikipedia

dbolger Re:reverse plagiarism (170 comments)

When I was a student, we had to sign away the rights to anything we wrote to the college, so I'd imagine you'd have to get permission from the college to submit it to Wikipedia in the first place.

PA School Defends Web-Cam Spying As Security Measure, Denies Misuse

dbolger Nothing wrong with it? (364 comments)

And if there was nothing wrong with it, why does the school say it won't start using the snooping feature again without "express written notification to all students and families"?

Umm, because there was a national scandal regarding it and the school is desperately trying to cover its ass on all sides?

Who is your favorite fictional doctor?

dbolger Re:who is (860 comments)

When I was a kid I had a promotional poster for Star Trek Voyager. The focus of the poster was a big picture of the starship, and there were headshots and names of the characters along the bottom. The EMH's name was given as "Dr. Zimmerman".

Mumbai Police To Enforce Wi-Fi Security

dbolger Re:Not enough (134 comments)

Calling it a "scare tactic" is a bit harsh. I'd say its more the police wanting something to point to when their bosses ask what they've done to "make Mumbai safe from this happening again".

New Asimov Movies Coming

dbolger Re:Oh, the potential (396 comments)

I would have enjoyed the movie if it wasn't for long minutes of 'nothing' repeated time and time again.

Um, you have read LoTR right? Quite frankly I was impressed by the sheer quantity "nothing happening" that Jackson managed to cut out.

Royal Society and Creationism In Science Classes

dbolger It /should/ be discussed in science classes (892 comments)

I have no problem with students being shown the difference between science and "creationism". One is the very antithesis of the other. How can the average student be expected to argue against this nonsense if they don't understand what it is and why it is not science?
