Feels like 90% of “celebrity filed x” are exactly that. From divorce papers to insurance payout requirements, it’s ordinary paperwork of life made large with an exclamatory headline.

IQ really isn't measuring what it claims. The math is real, but the concept is reveals is less "innate intelligence unit" and more "carefully calibrated competitive quiz-taking".

I'm just blown away by how good Gould is in this book. His environmental approach is really illuminating. It makes me really want to keep "IQ" in the pseudoscience column.

What a terrible headline. “Patient 0” at a lab is soooooooo different from “originate”. This phrasing can fuel some nasty shit.

I dream of ranked choice or approval. Especially for primaries, but also a national Presidential section.

I will never quite understand a certain segment of the very-online that have a strange bone to pick with gender/sexuality neologisms. They'll "google" and "tweet" about how "cis" is a made up word. Literally all words are made up.

Also, the "pronoun" jokes are kinda plaid out, IMHO. GLAAD has a really handy media guide for trans and other gender terms. Handy rules of thumb and rationale.

, buddy. You're looking for SJWs in the shadows and falling for 4chan jokes. You want to believe something fantastic, and entertain the tall tails of a bookish science fan that was probably an electrician with clearance in New Mexico.

This form of writing reminds me so much of the "audience making" element of 's video on Steve Bannon, Breitbart's chairman.

By the way, that Brietbart article from the petition, it's a real strange piece of work, including the definitely-objective-reporting phrase "Larson is the single most unlikable star in any of the Marvel Studios movies (or any movie, actually) [...]".

Moscovium is off the "island of stability" and incredibly unstable and radioactive. It decays to Nihonium (113) in a tenth of a second and irradiates things. Like the guy claiming he has some.

What was done in 2003 was its first synthesis in the real world to confirm the competing models and predictions about its properties. Bob was proven wrong.

Lazar's claims about "element 115" are pure science fiction, and told with lots of big words. The fact is, super-heavy elements up to and beyond 115 have been core to physics for ages.

Here he struggles along side , neither of them with much science schooling, to figure out a way to deal with a theoretical particle that big-fish story teller Bob Lazar likes to talk about.

There is no indication in the article that they ever contacted the creator of the obviously joke-y petition apparently created by Spike Valentine, the stage name of a former UBW Young Lions professional wrestler.

This petition gained popularity after an explicitly racist thread on /pol/ started with a link to "a petition exists on the internet" fake-news reporting by Brietbart.
