News Briefs 03-12-2012

The latest examples of why I voted YES: here, here, and here.

Quote of the Day:

Look, I know that people will probably try to lynch me when I say this, but Bishop [James] Ussher wasn't inspired by the Lord when he said that it all took 6,000 years. It just didn't. You go back in time, you've got radiocarbon dating. You got all these things and you've got the carcasses of dinosaurs frozen in time out in the Dakotas.

They're out there. So, there was a time when these giant reptiles were on the Earth and it was before the time of the Bible. So, don't try and cover it up and make like everything was 6,000 years. That's not the Bible.

Televangelist Pat Robertson, in response to a viewer who wrote in to 700 Club saying her 'biggest fear is to not have my children and husband next to me in God's Kingdom because they question why the Bible could not explain the existence of dinosaurs.'

The 'tightness' of the strand is the 1st thing that caught my attention too :)

It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...
It's all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!

Today I saw a bumper sticker that read "My Guinea Pig is Smarter Than Your Honor Student." :3

...also thank you Pat Robertson, because religion and faith are not the problem, it's the people preaching it and misguiding common sense into a quagmire :P

...I forgot how I got here but everyone seems to be heading off in that direction. I hope someone brought food. I have a feeling this is going to be a long journey................

I'd love to read the "10 Animals That Are Smarter Than You Think" story, but unbelievably, PopSci has a "content not available in Australia" message. I've found another 10 smart animals link that may or may not be the same story. It's bad enough not being able to watch online content due to the dreaded geoblock, but this is getting ridiculous... and it's going to get a lot worse.

crow, monitor lizard, jumping spider, rat, hornbill, live-bearing tooth carp, vampire bat, squirrel, anole (lizard), and honeybee.
it's the same as the one you couldn't access.
if that helps, sorry about the restrictions dude :P

Popsci has been like that for over a year. I've been waiting for them to fix it, because no commercial site could be *that* stupid, to be letting all those hits go to waste. But they never have.

So I let them know in a tweet today. ;)

Kind regards,
Greg

I stopped linking to PopSci in my news briefs exactly because of this issue. A lot of hits going to waste, indeed!

I didn't know about the problem with PopSci not being available in Oz until your comment.

Sorry about that. I'll try to remember not to link to them anymore.

Does anyone know if there's a site where one can check if a given URL is being blocked somewhere?
