Science vs Garlic

A local garlic farmer by the name of Lenny Levine has staved off the planned erection of an Eastlink radio tower, out of fears that its proximity to his garlic farm could cause issues with his crop.

In the spirit of the campaign organized by the Center for Inquiry, and in solidarity with those folks that live in countries where rampant ideas have more rights than people (e.g.: Ireland, where a person can be put in jail for saying something insulting about an …

The human condition

(Note from Jason: Jodi has an account here, and once in a while is inspired to write guest posts, but rarely gets them to the point where she’s comfortable publishing them. Tonight, she finished one.

Some more godless LOLs to carry you through this day of piety toward imaginary creatures. The Rapture was supposed to happen this past Monday, according to a crack Christian mathematician. Surprisingly, it didn’t. Eddie Izzard did a great routine on the absurdity of the Great Flood story that’ll leave you in stitches. Especially when he …

Nate Silver calls out Pollster on cooking polls

Pro-Republican company Strategic Vision, owners of the polling data firm Pollster, has long been suspected of fraudulently cooking polls to make its clients (the Republican party, primarily) look good. Nate Silver over at Five Thirty-Eight might have just put together sufficient mathematical proof via humans’ “gambler’s fallacy” to take them to task for it. The …
