    In the spirit of The Onion

    I thought it might be fun to see if PFers can rival the Onion headlines with our own Turnip Report, so I'll take a stab at it.

    Ha, good idea. Was the misspelling of habits on purpose?

    :rofl: And here I thought this was a thread for turbo to talk about his root crop from the garden. :biggrin: I like "The Turnip" better than "The Onion" as a title for a spoof story...reminds me of "I didn't just fall off the turnip truck."

    This is wrong on so many counts (well, at least three):

    1) It took less than 3 hours for The Turnip to have its first case of plagiarism. That article is from The Onion

    2) The article's total garbage in any event. Everyone knows the world sucks!

    3) You failed to italicize a single word in your post. In fact, you didn't even have any words in your post! You just posted a hyperlink.

    Wouldn't Intelligent Falling be more so a hypothesis since the 'intelligent' part is untestable?

    Oh come on now, don't we have any PFers up to the challenge besides Greg?
