This only goes to show that correlation does not imply causation.

Interesting and time comsuming.
I thought the turkey was f*cked up.
One thing that i will never stand is stupidity in people and animals as well.
If someone or something is going to be alive then do something worth your while on earth.
Instead of digesting and eating all the time and producing.
All these experiances are really obvious and were a waste of money and ones time.

Headbanging and the nerd thing.
The headbangers with neck troubles are usually the pussy ones that dont do it enough to build up the muscles in their neck. therefore...they hurt it. sheesh. bunch weak sauce peoples.

and yeah, most people who like metal, arnt the smartest bunch out there but we can sure as hell kick any other genres ass anyday

It`s very possible to OD on LSD, but considering that elephants spook easier than most animals, I bet they died of shock from the intense trip before they OD`ed

I`m a history nerd. I`d say that most of us aren`t doing a whole lot better than our buddies in the lab coats.

I don`t know if I buy the elephant story. I do know that no human has ever OD`d on LSD. That`s to mean nobody had died from LSD`s toxicity

And of all the things Sarah Palin could`ve insulted she chose fruit-fly research.

Perhaps elephant LSD dosage studies would`ve been better. It wouldn`t have made her look so stupid to the scientific community. Especially since she has a special needs child, and Down`s Syndrome research is pretty much conducted only in fruit flies.

true they where stupid things to fund but how much money where they given
a few of them i am only expecting them to have been given £100 max
so overall mot that much money wasted (it shouldn`t have been wasted but at least it wasn`t a lot of money)

Yea, I just got my art degree and my fiance is a software engineer...huge nerd. I wonder what`s the likelihood of art majors hooking up with nerds. I know quite a few of us pairs out there. They should do a study on that.
