Spoiler Alert: Smart Kids Become Successful Adults

lancelotlink Re:Government Money for Studies (256 comments)

Well, People generally comment on this site that basic research can lead to unexpected outcomes, new questions. It's entirely possible that all of this data can help support something new that we haven't thought of yet. I understand that this isn't basic research, but I feel that it could be applied here.

Man Who Pointed Laser At Aircraft Gets 30-Month Sentence

lancelotlink Re:Good. (761 comments)

I've heard that people put one above and below the tongue to look like they have a tongue piercing. The swallowing could just be accidental. Not sure if it works for the tongue, but I've seen it work with ear lobes.

Well, now that the Charles River is, I believe, the cleanest water way in an urban city in the world, then other smells start to get noticed more.

Extreme Criminal Court Makeover

lancelotlink Re:It's part of the package (14 comments)

Checking back on this thread has made me think a little about being a bit more fair about viewing this topic, but you are now the second person that has remarked on the tattoo by his eye as a tear drop. Let's be clear that it is the start of a SCAR tattoo that wasn't covered up by the makeup. Now, if it was left visible because it was too close to the eye for makeup to cover then that's one thing, but if it was done intentionally so members of the jury would mistake it as a tear to evoke some sympathy, then I'm back to feeling how I was in the beginning. Cover it up or don't.

Extreme Criminal Court Makeover

lancelotlink It's part of the package (14 comments)

No one forced him to get those tattoos and he's not looking to have them permanently removed. So I'd say they are part of him, part of his persona and should be shown to the jury.

Man Hurt After Homemade Rocket Explodes

lancelotlink Re:Not a Darwin award winner (8 comments)

I think the meaning behind the future winner angle was that this guy is probably stupid enough to do something like this again, AND THEN kill himself, thereby gaining one Darwin Award.

At least it's better than teaching him to smoke. I guess it's a trade off though. More dangerous to the others around him than to himself.
