        Will you take the red pill or the blue pill?
        \_ which pill ends up with me in a universe where physicists and/or
           people writing about them aren't deluded about the abilities of
           physicists?  -phuqm

6/8     My wife and I are childless. We never had much interest, but if we
        don't have kids soon we never will and so we are talking about it.
        To us the birthing process and pregnancy are disgusting. I realize
        it's the most natural thing in the world, but it's still extremely
        nasty to us both. And I believe in childbeating, which is illegal

The Sideshow - Thu, Dec 13, 2012 Could this be a computer simulation? Some physicists and university researchers say it's possible to test the theory that our entire universe exists inside a computer simulation, like in the 1999 film "The Matrix." And while those models are currently able to produce models only slightly larger than the nucleus of an atom, University of Washington physics professor Martin Savage says the same principles used in creating those simulations can be applied on a larger scale. "This is the first testable signature of such an idea," Savage said. "If you make the simulations big enough, something like our universe should emerge." Consider the Cornell University explanation: "Using the historical development of lattice gauge theory technology as a guide, we assume that our universe is an early numerical simulation with unimproved Wilson fermion discretization and investigate potentially-observable consequences." To translate, if energy signatures in our simulations match those in the universe at large, there's a good chance we, too, exist within a simulation. Interestingly, one of Savage's students takes the hypothesis further: If we stumble upon the nature of our existence, would we then look for ways to communicate with the civilization who created us? University of Washington student Zohreh Davoudi says whoever made our simulated universe might have made others, and maybe we should "simply" attempt to communicate with those. vlad the impaler o 3 days ago The real question would be why do it? Because if we do contact them and they decide we a bug in the program wouldn't they delete us? Mediator: Mom didn't like to leave gunman alone The mother of Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza told a divorce mediator in 2009 that she didn't like to leave him alone and that she would care for him as long as he needed it. This 6-Year-Old Survivor's Story May Be the Most Intense from Newtown Yet In the aftermath of Friday's Newtown school shooting, we've heard tales mostly horrifying and occasionally heroic, from surviving witnesses and mourning citizens alike, but this one lies somewhere in between, all the more unshakeable. One six-year-old Sandy Hook student played dead in her first-grade classroom, her family pastor said late Sunday, with the kind of quick thinking that ended up saving her life but now leaves her with the unshakeable memories of watching all her classmates being shot and killed. Inherited colon cancer risk tied to certain foods NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Among people who have a genetic susceptibility to colon cancer, those whose diets are heavy in junk food have an even higher risk, according to a new study. "These patients have this very high risk because of this (genetic) mutation they have, but it might be that they could reduce the number of (tumors) by having a more healthy lifestyle," said Akke Botma, the lead author of the study. Botma's study is just the first to find a link between certain foods and a higher colon cancer risk in this group, and it can't prove that the diet is to blame. Mom finally reunited with kids taken to Zimbabwe eight months ago TORONTO - A mom reunited with her two kids after eight months broke down Monday as she thanked those who helped bring the family back together in time for the holidays. Father of suspected Connecticut shooter "in state of disbelief" (Reuters) - The father of the man suspected of killing 26 people at a Connecticut elementary school said on Saturday he was in a "state of disbelief" and was fully cooperating with law enforcement officials investigating the massacre. Peter Lanza, father of 20-year-old Adam Lanza, who law enforcement officials have said burst into Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday and killed 20 children and six adults, said: "We are in a state of disbelief and trying to find whatever answers we can. Sandy Hook Principal a '5-foot-2-inch Raging Bull' Lifesaver Sandy Hook Elementary School principal Dawn Hochsprung devoted her life to helping students as an educator.

Teacher says gunman was loner who didn't feel pain At Newtown High School, Adam Lanza had trouble relating to fellow students and teachers, but that was only part of his problem. He seemed not to feel physical or emotional pain in the same way as classmates.
