    Report Focus: Dice Become Ordered When Stirred, Not Shaken

    It took me quite a long while to notice that it didn't say Mice. Of course they're not going to get ordered if you shake a box full of them.

    World Sweden: Man arrested for 'kidnapping' his own son

    Going to copy this from a post on the linked website. --- This article is wrong on almost every single point, apart from that there was a kid who wanted to be carried in a bag. There was no "raid", there was no "arrest". It was not even the home of the man himself, but of his friend (who is a...

    World Australia: Australian judge says incest may no longer be a taboo

    By the looks of it, yes, she was raped at least once. That doesn't make incest wrong however, because they're two different things. I find it downright laughable that one of the people that criticized the judge called him a misogynist, because the term 'incest' is used regardless if it's about...

    Health Infants 'unable to use toy building blocks' due to iPad addiction

    Or maybe they should just change their curriculum instead of complaining about having to extra work. The world changes. Pen and paper exams aren't necessarily the optimal way to test a person, if it's even relevant to test them on memorization in the first place. People have pretty much...

    So if it had been a male-shaped robot, by their logic, it would have been sexist against men.

    World British mom lets kids write imprisoned US murderers as forgiveness lesson

    It's more likely that she's concerned that said sex offenders won't take the conversation seriously. Other than that, I kind of agree with her, I don't see anything wrong with it. It can also be interesting to see matters from the prisoners' point of view, especially for children.

    Sci/Tech The baby seat with iPad attachment: Shameful or honest?

    I scrolled and expected to read people complaining that computers are bad for your upbringing and crippling for your future, but for what is probably the first time I can actually agree with a point made by what could be thought of as conservatives. The possibility that giving your baby an iPad...

    Crime 'Pothead princess' tweeted '2 drunk 2 care'

    Too drunk to care, but never too drunk to use it as an excuse for being irresponsible. You're always responsible for your own actions, drunk or not.

    Sci/Tech Do we live in the Matrix?

    These scientists are idiots. One of the basic facts about simulated universes, given no direct input from the "real" world, is that it's impossible to prove that you're within a simulated universe, because if you are within a simulated universe the laws of physics would also be simulated and not...

    Sci/Tech Scientists kill world's oldest creature

    Bacteria are also alive, loads and loads of millions of them. When we cure people of disease, we're actually killing bacteria inside them. Taking your statement literally, all life has value and therefore we should not kill bacteria. However, bacteria cannot think. It doesn't think that it...
