    Medical IQ Question - Dealing with population mean.

    No, and I doubt training every waking hour would make me a world class olympic anything other than a world class physical wreak. No doubt, 'wanting to' will get you part of the way, but talent separates the very best from all us ordinary folks. And 'us ordinary folks' are just about all of us...

    Is this guy serious or being funny? Help me decide.

    When I first started cruising this guy's website I thought he was a pretty funny, in an Andy Kaufman way. Then, the more I clicked the links at the top of his page, the more it started to look like he might be serious. Take a look at his site (linked) and let me know what you think. Humorous or...

    News BBC at it again – The Case of the Elaborate Deception

    Thanks Burnsys – that is a website created by two individuals who have collected pretty extensive information which, they propose, indicates BBC bias as it relates to the Middle East and specifically Israel and her enemies. They provide four 'reports' – starting in March 2002 and going forward...

    News BBC at it again – The Case of the Elaborate Deception

    I'm sure most of us remember the BBC biggie from last year, the Hutton Report, http://www.the-hutton-inquiry.org.uk/ and The Case of the Satisfactory Internal Inquiry. That case lead to the "resignations" of two senior BBC executives and BBC reporter, Andrew Gilligan. According to the Hutton...

    News What's up with this Che Guevara - ah, stuff?

    Anyone know what's the recent fascination with wearing Che Guevara's image on hats and tee shirts? Is it political? What am I missing here? I've witnessed Mr. Guevara’s likeness a number of times while Christmas shopping. Do the people who wear this stuff have any idea who Guevara really is -...

    News More Americans now call themselves Republicans than Democrats

    That doesn't necessarily have to be the case as I see this. It could have been that large numbers of undecideds and independants started calling themselves Republicans. That more people in the "middle" are either moving to the right or just calling themselves Repuublicans --- all while the...

    News More Americans now call themselves Republicans than Democrats

    The Republicans are not just the majority party in government; they now hold the edge against Democrats in national party identification. What has caused this shift in political identification – even as the Republicans themselves move even further to the right? Could it be that the Democrats...

    Global national-IQ map posted at Children of Millennium

    Maybe - but the implication I receive is that these 'national IQs' can be compared to each other. A sort of 'cause-effect deal.' Rather, it's more like a 'chicken-egg deal' IMO. Since environment AND genetics probably play a role in IQ test results we run into a major problem when comparing...

    News Mujahidin terrorised Fallujah

    Also there is some indication of evidence that the insurgents had retaken that mosque while this wounded fella was there. Bottom line - that video doesn't tell us the entire story. So maybe, some here need to pull the rope down, get back on their horses, and ride on home.

    News Mujahidin terrorised Fallujah

    Read my initial post again. I'm not saying this soldier should be allowed to murder. But than again, maybe you shouldn't reach judgments based solely on a 10 second tape.

    News Mujahidin terrorised Fallujah

    If after investigation the conclusions indicate that there were no mitigating factors, and the soldier murdered the insurgent with the requisite malicious mind, then he should be punished as a murderer. Note however, before this event there was a booby trapped insurgent which had killed a US...

    News Arafat’s billion dollars

    I'll add that I'm glad that Arafat is dead. I'll never have to see that greasy, oily, bug eyed, cheese grinning, face again plying his trade. We'll never see his self-centered 'oneness' - Arafat - the murderer of thousands of innocent people, from athletes at the Olympics to dads, mothers, and...

    News Ashcroft Just Resigned, It's A Great Day For America!

    I was joshing about Ashcroft. The Republicans don't have the numbers to block a Democratic filibuster, and if Ashcroft was nominated we'd see one of those until 2008.

    News Gay marriage amendments and activism

    I may have been a little quick to frame this as a political issue -- that is, an across the board liberal / conservative issue. For example, Blacks, who tend to vote democrat and liberal on social issues -- are, on the whole, against gay marriage. Myself -- I'm moderately conservative yet favor...

    News Gay marriage amendments and activism

    And to avoid drifting too far from the issue --- The question is still out there -- should gays / lesbians wait and hope OR will it serve their purpose better to become more active, more vocal on this issue? More like some of the non-violent acvtivism during the 1960s?

    News Gay marriage amendments and activism

    Thanks for the thoughtful response --- I'll just add on the lawyer's advice 'to wait,' which you mentioned --- while waiting for the "right" set of circumstances is certainly advisable, I wonder if it is also advisable to balance that desire 'to wait' against the probable composition of the...

    News Bush ignorance of his own marriage amendment

    ... and least I'm misunderstood. Bush could have sai "I don't know" - but he could have said "I don't know" in the context of whether the higher courts might interpert the marriage amendments. In that context - "I don't know" is the ONLY reasonable response.

    News Bush ignorance of his own marriage amendment

    I'd be really surprised if Bush ssaid he "didn't know" in the context Loren Booda indicates he did. This was one of the issues of the campaign for gosh sakes! Even if his position was on the fence - and it wasn't - I doubt Bush would have presented such an unpolished response as just suggested...

    News Gay marriage amendments and activism

    Amendments, defining marriage as between a man and a woman only, passed "overwhelmingly" in all 11 states that considered the issue on Tuesday. *(In fact, having the gay marriage issue on the ballot in Ohio may have elected Bush - but that’s another issue)* The issue here is this - should...
