Bill "The Science Guy" Nye Says Creationism Is Not Appropriate For Children

enormouspenis Re:Yes! (1774 comments)

Who the fuck is Bill Nye. He is a failed actor and media whore. Why should anyone give a flying fuck what he thinks about Global Warming, modern society or anything at all. What a huge important story to put on /. And cue the nerd whorship: The first poster thinks the guy is awesome. Call Nye's agent and book him for your next birthday party. Maybe he'll suck your dick for an extra $10. This is why I don't bother with this place anymore.

Do Women Make Better Bosses?

enormouspenis Re:Both can be equally bad (403 comments)

Agreed. I've had lots of jobs and probably 25% were with woman bosses. All but one were absolutely horrible. The exception was one of the smartest department managers I've ever met anywhere and she moved up the food chain quickly. But because 75% of my bosses have been men I tend to forget that 75% of them were probably jerks as well as idiots. It is all subjective.

2011 Was the 9th Hottest Year On Record

enormouspenis The data is not to be trusted (877 comments)

Hansen is the lead author on almost all that data. None of his "science" can be trusted. Not only is he a fraud as a scientist but he is paid literally millions of dollars every year by cap and trade financial organizations, political PACs and a who's who of "green" groups. The sooner you true believers realize you are being fed propaganda to make a few people rich the sooner real science can be applied to the issue.

Is Climate Change the New Evolution?

enormouspenis Re:Isn't that anti-science? (1055 comments)

Email 3114

"3. We would like to point out here that CRU is doing a service to the climatological community around the world, by making these and many other gridded datasets and products available. We are continually being thanked by scientists around the world (both personally and through acknowledgements within published papers). All these scientists are happy to use these gridded products, rather than deal with the raw station data."

......I'm just sayin'....

Russian Official Implies Foul Play In Mars Probe Failure

enormouspenis The Cold war; (451 comments)

it never ends. I lived in the EU last decade and remember listening to Russian English news after one of their subs sank. They were hysterical that a US sub that arrived in the area to help was actually only pretending to help to cover up the fact that it had secretly sunk the sub itself. There is a significant faction still in power that blames everything that goes wrong on sabotage by the West. They are not friendly.

FDA Backtracks On Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Proposal

enormouspenis Re:As a vegtarian: (172 comments) Many other growers use antibiotics on fruits and vegetables. In fact, antibiotic resistance likely comes more from excessive use in ranching and agriculture rather than direct use in humans IMHO.

The Painkiller That Saves Money But Costs Lives

enormouspenis Re:it is harder to get high on (385 comments)

In the case specifically addressed in TFA, the fact that the patient was on both methadone and Oxy simultaneously is mind-boggling. Indeed. I am a medical doctor and see this occasionally in terminal patients; Used to prescribe combos like that myself for patients with bone ca. or similar if they were monitored. However, sending people home on methadone along with other opioids for chronic pain control is a very bad idea. Folks using methadone already often turn up in our ED dead after using pills they buy elsewhere; and these are "professionals". I don't really know anyone who does it (except on very very rare cases) and I spend a lot of time with medicaid patients. This is the sort of thing NHS does; shouldn't happen here.

'Alternative Medicine' Clinic Attempts To Silence Critics

enormouspenis The science is settled... (515 comments)

"That’s because real science thrives on criticism, since it’s only through critiques that the potential errors of a particular method can be assessed — that’s why research is supposed to be published in peer-reviewed journals as well. Suing is the antithesis of that idea. ..." Unless you are talking about AGW; because then no criticism can be allowed. /snark off

Climate Skeptic Funded By Oil and Coal Companies

enormouspenis Re:Should result in a prison sentence (504 comments)

If you read the article, near the top he is damned for receiving grants from "the Koch Foundation". That means the entire article is a leftist hit piece; and Leftists lie about everything. No need to read further. Look for an objective piece on the subject somewhere else before you form an opinion.

Aussie Climate Scientists Receiving Death Threats

Excuse me asshole, what are you implying? Because what I'm reading is an incredibly ignorant screed by someone who obviously knows nothing of terrorism , tea party activists or the real World. BTW, "tea-bagging" is what your boyfriend does with you; it is not the grass roots political group.

Ask Slashdot: Do I Give IT a Login On Our Dept. Server?

enormouspenis Re:Sysadmins VS Lusers, lets get ready to rumble! (1307 comments)

Thank you. I have worked with many doctors who were extremely competent with network systems. A department chief who actually set up something like the OP did (calendar and patient lab results) FOR the IT dept for his doctors, a fellow who did his graduate degree before medicine at Berkeley working on.....BSD. And at my current hospital the custom system for EMH was developed by a former department chief doctor. All I'm reading in response is a bunch of arrogant IT people banging the old drum that doctors are arrogant pricks. Yes, if he is behind the firewall IT should share control of the server and I would suggest running a wireless system out of his office just for his department if he doesn't want to use Google and IT will not or cannot integrate his ideas into the network. In my hospital personal laptops can be connected to the network after being vetted by IT (all the State supplied computers are roughly 13 years old) which means they keep your machine for a week or two, snooping through your patient files (a HIPPA violation as they are not involved in the patient's care) but they will not allow Macs because....well, just because they are IT and they say so. One doc used his iPad to connect to the secure wireless network and access patient labs and history in real time while seeing the patients---the scenario that IT claims is the future. It should be because that doc found it incredibly efficient and fast; and he was written up and ordered never to do something like that again.

Merck's Drug Propecia Linked To Sexual Dysfunction

enormouspenis This does not surprise (235 comments)

me a bit. When I was in medical school on the wards the vioxx drug rep would bring us food and put on the most outrageous bullshit presentations. The data was all skewed, the studies were flawed and we knew the damn drug was a killer. We ate their food and took their "studies" apart. Heck, my pharm D professor told us in basic science classes never to prescribe it.
