  1. Has anyone ever worked or volunteered in a lab as a high school student? How did you go about getting yourself involved? Is this even possible? As someone who's looking to major in bio-something in college, I'm jumping at all the experience it's possible to get - both for the sake of experience itself and because it'd look awesome on application. Any input and/or advice would be greatly appreciated
  2. IMHO: Sheehan would undoubtedly deserve sympathy in the case of a draft. However, her son knew what he was getting into when he signed up for military and she is grossly disrespecting that decision by taking his death to the level she has.

    So now god created superglue?? Let's teach ID in shop class!!! Did your stepdad buy it or was he just watching it for the "wtf" factor?
  4. Hahaha, that's fantastic. Intelligent Design Intelligent Design Intelligent Design
  5. Yes, without hesitation. Death is permanent, guys, and frankly, there aren't many benefits to it.
  6. Honestly, I don't see how Bush's opinion on the matter is a shock to anyone, though the ID folks will probably take it and run with it. Yes, we should inform kids about intelligent design - and the fact that it's absolute bullshit :\ Or maybe it could go in social studies classes. That would be fun. *IF* it happens - and that's a big "if" - I think that the kids who want to go into biology will (hopefully) be smart enough to differentiate between fact and fiction, so the percentage of kids interested in scientific fields won't really be affected regardless of what's taught (and as a highschool sophomore living in the bible belt, examples of that course of action are prevalent enough). The problem is what will happen to the less-interested majority, and their view of science as a whole. But I'm sure we've got a surplus of threads on this issue so I'll stop here
  7. Yep. On the list of human universals, under "tabooed utterances" - http://condor.depaul.edu/~mfiddler/hyphen/humunivers.htm (that whole list is interesting, btw)
  8. Debris: two-foot long chunk of foam insulation, basically the same thing that happened to Columbia except this time it didn't hit the orbiter. And now the shuttle fleet is grounded. And this sucks :\
  9. Brilliant scientists and engineers who live forever = big bad alien-killing weapons.
  10. Oh, that was fun. The eight-year-old in me still wants to be an astronaut. (If this thing is torn apart during reentry NASA is screwed.)
  11. Well, I'm from San Antonio so I *have* to say the Spurs Everyone was nervous about Ginobli's injury because he kind of leads the team but it looks like that's fine.
  12. The last Bean book came out in the beginning of March, it's called Shadow of the Giant Very good book (and that's coming from someone who HATED Bean). Dunno when it'll be out in paperback, though. I read these books when I was nine and lent them to some friends. We'd be stupid and play battleschool in the pool and stuff, haha.
