Bottled Science

Dang ol' science with its figure out stuff and the like.

We don't needs us no science. We'ze gots Jeebus and 2000 year old desert mythology to guide us!

Vast majority of scientists say Bush Administration suppressed research findings:

"A new Pew Research Poll released Thursday found that a vast majority of scientists -- some 77 percent -- say that claims the Bush Administration suppressed research reports that didn't align with Administration's point of view are true.

The survey polled more than 2,500 scientists in collaboration with the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

'Most scientists had heard at least a little about claims that government scientists were not allowed to report research findings that conflicted with the Bush administration’s point of view,' Pew wrote. 'And the vast majority (77%) says that these claims are true. By contrast, these claims barely registered with the public – more than half heard nothing at all about this issue. Only about a quarter of the public (28%) said they thought the claims were true.'"

Not surprising. The battle isn't 'taxes' it is 'intelligence'.

And conservatives are just not that into thinking. Too hard.

Poll: Just six percent of scientists are Republican:

"A full 87 percent of American scientists see their political alignment as Democrat or Independent, according to a new Pew Research poll.

Surprisingly or not, just six percent declared themselves Republican, and only nine percent overall expressed support of conservative ideology."

And I don't know if Jeb Bush likes to fuck little boys. I simply do not know.

Jeb Bush: ‘I don’t know’ if Obama is a socialist.

Good! I've held the position for quite some time that bottled water is the stupidest fucking thing on the planet.

Australians Ban Bottled Water:

"SYDNEY — Residents of a rural Australian town hoping to protect the earth and their wallets have voted to ban the sale of bottled water, the first community in the country _ and possibly the world _ to take such a drastic step in the growing backlash against the industry."

Pretty amazing. When I lived really close to the beach, on a clear day, you could see the Farallones. Maybe all of the socialist environmental concern we San Francisco Commies like to practice is paying off. Well, a blind squirrel, I guess.....

I knew we had big ass white sharks out there, but didn't know that the orcas hang out too.

A whale of a day near the Farallones:

"Six orcas, two humpback whales, one gray whale, 500 Northern right whale dolphins, 100 Risso's dolphins, 50 Pacific White-sided dolphins, 50 harbor porpoises, along with California sea lions and Northern fur seal and many birds sightings: 15 albatross, a rare Xantus' murrelet, along with murres, guillemots, fulmars, shearwaters, puffins, oystercatchers, grebes, gulls, terns, auklets, cormorants and pelicans."

If we tried that over here, we could explode half the fundies' heads in one fell swoop.

Anyone (ladies?) want to help me get in great cardio shape?

"Orgasm A Day" Campaign Directed At British Schoolchildren Sparks Controversy:

"The National Health Service of Britain has sparked controversy with their controversial sex education campaign promoting an orgasm a day:

A National Health Service leaflet is advising school pupils that they have a 'right' to an enjoyable sex life and that regular intercourse can be good for their cardiovascular health...

...Alongside the slogan 'an orgasm a day keeps the doctor away', it says: 'Health promotion experts advocate five portions of fruit and veg a day and 30 minutes' physical activity three times a week. What about sex or masturbation twice a week?'"
