changing the subject I see. Nice try when the boat is sinking.

So would u like to open a new thread about how science is a means to an end rather than an end in itself? I am sure you know the difference. The above quote is actually a very strong claim. Given that majority of the scientific academia are not directly applicable, I would like to see you argue for the above assertion with a little bit of substance.

Some girl once asked me why she isn't getting laid, I told her to lose weight and smile more. U know, most people would consider that an "answer" too.

you would need a "this forum is on its way to become like USPO" smiley to go with that.

It's not quite that bad yet. Flaming over Fox Propaganda tidbits is very hard to tolerate. Flaming over semantics is just boring.

By the way, I forgot to use my Bunsen burner on this post. Sorry, Margot.

'yawn' smiley.

followed by "this forum is on its way to become like USPO" smiley.

very handy now that the semantics have been established.

I had to go with context clues, you see, and I figured it was an admission of your mistakes. That's the sort of thing I say when I realize I'm wrong--but I guess arbitrary definitions only take us so far...

Golly, it sure does make more sense when you follow the rules of language and spelling! It's like... What's it like? It's like science!

Help yourself with urban dictionary or other web available sources sometimes.

Re : the Ehrlenmeyer flask analogy.

A comparison with itself to a human brain is rather interesting. And comparing a chemical reaction to the way in which we process language is likewise.

However, none of us are working with clean labware. Both the flask and the brain are contaminated.

No one conducting such experiments can hypothesize accurately on either outcome.
