jennatalia Something in the water! (558 comments)

If they are really diagnosing autism correctly up until now, then maybe just a US thing? Do other countries show a spike in this?

Don't Help Your Kids With Their Homework

jennatalia Bullshit (278 comments)

I did fine growing up, but me working with my younger brother on concepts helped him more at school and was a top-off on education more than anything. I'm sure my parents would have helped, but they were working. Showing kids how to get from A to B is a lot better than showing them the answers or doing it for them.

Google Flu Trends Gets It Wrong Three Years Running

jennatalia Predictions are predictions (64 comments)

It doesn't mean they'll come true. I predict I'll win the lottery. Yay, I won $4 instead of $40M. It's a noble cause, but it just needs some tinkering to get things right.

Putting the Next Generation of Brains In Danger

jennatalia What's worse: chemicals or ignorance? (143 comments)

Although chemicals are bad and may be able to break the blood barrier, that doesn't happen all over the world due to access to those chemicals. Ignorance, on the other hand, happens everywhere and can spread a lot easier. Inputs from family, society, and religious dogma all contribute. Too bad there wasn't a way to change some of that. Chemicals must be easier...

Star Trek Economics

jennatalia I hope they solved problems by then... (888 comments)

Star Trek didn't have to worry about childhood obesity and morbid obesity at all. Heck, if they wanted to, they could use the transporters to do molecular plastic surgery. Are you 1500lbs? Take a ride on the transporter and demolecularize your fat away!

Internet Censorship Back On Australian Agenda

jennatalia Why stop at sires? (109 comments)

Why not just block access altogether? Someone may do something illegal. Better take it away completely.

South Carolina Education Committee Removes Evolution From Standards

jennatalia Gravity and other bonds--that's easy (665 comments)

God's will. If it weren't for that, we'd all be dead. Who created the TV? God. Who makes rainbows? God. Who causes your boyfriend to cheat on you? Man's sin. Everything that is good and can't be explained through science is God's will. All the bad stuff is man's sin. Perfect sense.

jennatalia Windows replacement (179 comments)

I'd recommend Pella, though, they are expensive. You could go with Curadco for a cheaper replacement.

jennatalia If they think the lights are causing interference (158 comments)

Do Hypersonic Missiles Make Defense Systems Obsolete?

jennatalia You can't outrun radar. (365 comments)

Subsonic missiles or not, there's still as way to detect them. We need to develop a "laser" system and attach it to different objects to destroy the incoming missiles.
