    Can we kill the mosquitos and keep the insects that don’t spread deadly diseases?

    Maybe kill bedbugs too. My neighbor had those, and I’ve been paranoid af about them ever since.

    Yeah, you’d be surprised at the defense of genetic determinism, even from people who really should know better. (And yes, if you say “a gene for X”, I’m going to demand a protein for X as well, not just a weak correlation.)

    Why the phrase “gun violence” is more harmful than useful.

    Anyway, 1.21? How many do you need?

    At a bare minimum, suicides would be a case for psychological counseling. Accidents, not so much; you really need education there. (And not movies. Seriously, no matter how many guns are in movies, I’m convinced no one in Hollywood has ever so much…[Read more]

    One evo psych guy told me all women are bi. Men are never bi as well.

    At that point, you’re not hypothesizing. You’re masturbating.

    I just like that the willful blindness wrt: human rights violations in China is finally over.

    In fact, in the 19th century, there was a whole “they don’t feel pain” meme as part of the larger “racial differences in brains” memeplex. Yeah, it’s fucking horrible, so of course the 19th century had it.

    I believe cannabis users have a higher caloric intake.

    Apparently.

    The Nazi thing is kinda interesting. The Nazis were big on Blavatsky and Steiner, I know that. So, yeah, now you not only have Atlantis (and this is where it became completely unmoored from the actually somewhat plausible Atlantis in Timaeus and Critias into the crystal technology Atlantis we now think of), but three additional lost…[Read more]

    Insert Operation Paperclip joke here.

    It also has meant, during my college years, explaining to my grandmother repeatedly that, no, the E. coli I was working with wasn’t that E. coli.

    To be fair, though, Mickey Finn was from before Prohibition. So it’s not like the idea of intentionally drugging someone in food or drink was nothing new. Though for him it was more of a “15% minimum please”.

    Chinese government interested in truth. Good luck with that one.

    TBH, He is disturbing for reasons beyond the mere ethical concerns of this case. We’re dealing with a resurgence of eugenics, and it antedates Trump’s interest in politics. (TBH, most of the eugenists were on the Clinton side. Just like the neocons and a bunch of other old enemies…[Read more]

    I think the ob/gyn gives out copies of What to Expect when You’re Expecting as well. So, I’m guessing your mom has that book too.

    I’m guessing Wasink is popular with the National Restaurant Association? I mean, assuming they’re not still denying the connection between calories ingested and weight gain. (Or with modern science, possibly…[Read more]

    Yep. The fact is, medicine is great when used properly and child abuse (or even homicide) when not.

    I got it! Female for all things related to children, male for all things related to pawn shops. (That logo on pawn shops? That’s St. Nicholas’ three sacks.)

    I like how you started with precious bodily fluids. I wonder how many anti-fluoride types know that was a real John Birch Society conspiracy theory. “Poe” could very well stand for Purity Of Essence. (It doesn’t. But it’s nice to pretend.)

    You’re gonna take a walk in the rain and you’re gonna get wet, I predict
    You’re gonna eat a bowl of chow mein and be hungry real soon, I predict

    Funny thing is, the first incels I ever encountered (wow, was it really 1999?) were Asian. Very 90s site, with all the typical 90s designs (solid black background because that’s so deep, Fraktur brushscript header, misspelled). They tended to see the anti-Asian bias as “assimilate the women, leave the men behind” imperialism.

    ‘Twould be more accurate to say “If they do exist, they either can’t get to Earth or are staying the hell away from Earth.” It’s a huge universe. I can fully understand why all intelligent life would stay away from a planet _insert jeremiad about how narcissistic, obsessed with conspicuous consumption, obsessed with celebrity, and listens to…[Read more]

    Minute-by-minute. So you’ve been to South Dakota, I take it?

    But seriously, yeah, the problem is that people don’t understand the concept of scale. Similarly, climate does change even without human intervention, but never so rapidly. It takes a geologic time scale.
