    Yep. The most plausible explanation I’ve heard for the 10% nonsense is that early estimates indicated that 90% of the cells in the brain were glial cells (by count, not by mass—neurons are huge) and this was immediately misinterpreted by the media and “scientific romance” writers.

    That could be as false as the 10% myth, but I could definitely see that happening.

    As I always suspected: Dinos died out because they couldn’t get dates.

    Dang! I’d forgotten all about those. I should have at least remembered the Mateba. I read about those after Chiappa released the Rhino. Clever design, but I think it sort of removes the only advantage revolvers still have over SAs: their simplicity. Anyway, you’re right, and, though I wasn’t exactly wrong, I’m a bit of a doof for being tongue in cheek about something that actually exists.

    And I like the way it keeps going off as it bounces. Must he one of them automatic revolvers.

    They call it climate change because they believe adding greenhouse gases to the air will cause weather to become more chaotic.
    Yes, they are predicting greater unpredictability. If they’re wrong, that just proves them right.

    Celiac disease is very real, as are other forms of gluten and wheat intolerance, but there’s also a ridiculous dietary fad going on right now. I know two people who have been diagnosed by doctors with celiac disease, but I also know at least a dozen who have either self-diagnosed themselves with “gluten sensitivity” or have simply bought into the idea that gluten free = healthier. I even saw one of these hypochondriacs happily munching on complimentary breadsticks while waiting for his gluten-free entree. The real celiacs are more annoyed by these faddists than anyone else I know.
