Bullshit & SouthPark: some more scientology bullshit from Annom

Why Bullshit didn't make an episode about Scientology... Fucked up Showtime. Why do they care so much about Scientology? Do "they" really have so much influence?
What took you so long to take on Scientology? Was the network worried about it?
[Trey Parker]: To be honest, what kept us from doing it before was Isaac Hayes [who does the voice of Chef]. We knew he was a Scientologist. And he's an awesome guy. We're like, Let's just avoid that for now. But we're friends with Penn Jillette, and Showtime wouldn't let him do an episode of Bullshit! on Scientology. We're going, That's fucked up. And hearing other people say, "You can't do that,"-you can only say "You can't do that" so many times to Matt and me before we're gonna do it. Finally, we just had to tell Isaac, "Dude, we totally love working with you, and this is nothing personal, it's just we're South Park, and if we don't do this, we're belittling everything else we've ripped on." So we realized we had to do it, and now that we've done it, now it's like we've sort of opened the floodgates. People will be less scared.

Amazon river 'switched direction'

The world's largest river, the Amazon, once flowed from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific - the opposite of its present direction, a study shows.
Sedimentary rocks in the central part of South America contain ancient mineral grains that must have come from the eastern part of the continent. Geologist Russell Mapes says this must mean that about 145-65 million years ago, the Amazon flowed east to west.
Weird, huh?!

Quote... Science vs. Religion

I stumbled upon this quote that nicely shows why science is different from religion/faith, as addition to an old discussion we had in Bleens. "And physicists such as myself are acutely aware that the reality we observe--matter evolving on the stage of space and time--may have little to do with the reality, if any that's out there. Nevertheless, because observations are all we have, we take them seriously. We choose hard data and the framework of mathematics as our guides, not unrestrained imagination or unrelenting skepicism, and seek the simplest yet most wide-reaching theories capable of explaining and predicting the outcome of today's and future experiments." - Brian Greene "According to the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), a scientific theory is 'a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world that can incorporate facts, laws, inferences, and tested hypotheses.' No amount of validation changes a theory into a law, which is a descriptive generalization about nature. So when scientists talk about the theory of evolution--or the atomic theory or the theory of relativity, for that matter--they are not expressing reservations about its truth. "

In zoos and in the wild there have been a lot of hybrids between species. Wikipedia has a lot of information about them. I find it really fascinating to see these 'new' creatures. The most famous of hybrids is probably the mule. Another really famous hybrid is the liger: It's a cross between a lion and a tiger and is the biggest of all cats. It might be possible to make a hybrid between a human and a chimpanzee, but only rumors of this hybrid have been heard and no one is trying to make one. It would be called a chuman or humanzee. Wouldn't it be great to have a human with gorilla strength? They should really try and make one, because I want to see it.

Antennae galaxies’ fertile marriage

A new Hubble image of the Antennae galaxies is the sharpest yet of this merging pair of galaxies. As the two galaxies smash together, thousand of millions of stars are born, mostly in groups and clusters of stars. note: this post has been copy+pasted from the original article due to lack of time. Annom edit: Here is the image: And here another nice Hubble image, the Sombrero galaxy: I hope they are going to repair Hubble now that the Space Shuttle flies again.

Visions for Psychedelics

"A single dose of psilocybin, the active ingredient in the infamous psychedelic mushrooms indigenous to Mexico, triggered long-lasting mystical experiences in several dozen middle-aged volunteers enrolled in an unusual study at Johns Hopkins University.

Roland Griffiths and his colleagues brought 36 people into the laboratory for an eight-hour session during which they experienced their first psychedelic high. Two thirds of them said that the trip was among the most profound spiritual events in their life, Griffiths reports. A third rated it as their number-one awakening, and their family and co-workers said they seemed happier in the months after the experiment, according to a follow-up study just concluded."

Students Prosper with Montessori Method

"On a variety of tests, ranging from letter-word identification to math, these Montessori kids outscored their public school counterparts. When confronted with social issues, such as another child hoarding a swing, they more commonly resorted to reasoning--43 percent to 18 percent. And on tests of so-called executive function--the ability to adapt to changing rules that increase in complexity--Montessori children again outperformed their peers. "

The mother has been arrested and imprisoned under a € 60.000,- bail." source: www.nu.nl nice... -.-

Study Claims Iraq's 'Excess' Death Toll Has Reached 655,000

Washington Post A team of American and Iraqi epidemiologists estimates that 655,000 more people have died in Iraq since coalition forces arrived in March 2003 than would have died if the invasion had not occurred. The estimate, produced by interviewing residents during a random sampling of households throughout the country, is far higher than ones produced by other groups, including Iraq's government. It is more than 20 times the estimate of 30,000 civilian deaths that President Bush gave in a speech in December. It is more than 10 times the estimate of roughly 50,000 civilian deaths made by the British-based Iraq Body Count research group.

The house of Robin Hood

The house of the modern Robin Hood, Bill Gates, has a value of $125 million. Some features:
  • If a guest wishes, the music of his or her choice will follow him or her throughout the house - even at the bottom of the pool.
  • There are no visible electrical outlets.
  • Sensors in the floor can track a person to within 6 inches. The system is monitored at the Mircosoft Redmond campus.
  • The master bathtub can be filled to the right temperature and depth by Gates as he drives home from work.
  • The theater was built underground in a concrete shell.
  • It is rumored that the house was designed on a Macintosh.
  • An existing cedar tree was determined by Gates to be in the wrong location and moved 6 inches.
  • Visitors are surveyed upon entrance and are given a microchip that sends signals throughout the house to adjust temperature and other conditions according to preset user preferences.
  • Some of the interior passage doors weigh over 350kg, but are balanced for easy use.
