Have you ever felt as though a lot of what was reported as "scientific evidence" is absolute garbage? One reporter followd up and investigated 106 claims that came his way during an ordinary day. The result -- a whopping 2/3 of the claims made (particularly by advertisers) are just pure bunk.

Outstanding link, Byrd!

The article is utterly fascinating - and very amusing, too - but after five minutes I realised it had depressed the hell out of me.

Great link, BYRD.
Somehow, this doesn't surprise me. Esp. the food labels part, as I discovered the food lies while researching my low-carb lifestyle.

And, BTW, what a cool name for the guy who wrote the article you cite:
William Speed Weed!

Great link but yes, pretty depressing. Yes DTOM, I noticed the name, pretty strange. But to the point of being technically correct, is it boloney or bologna? Or if we say it's boloney does that really make it bologna.

BTW, anyone seen any asteroids zipping by?
