No one wants this plant in their back yard, along their hiking trail, or on their planet.
The Gympie Gympie is an Australian plant with spindly stems and heart-shaped light green leaves. Brushing your hand against it can make you throw up from the pain. Using it as toilet paper has made people shoot themselves. This plant will ruin you.

Fascinating read. Glad we don't have those here.

GMO is more green and more environmentally friendly than "organic" food. Those who oppose genetically modified foods are the same people who deny climate change or think vaccines cause Autism.

"The fact is that humans have been genetically modifying plants for more than 10,000 years."

There's still a hell of a lot of room to thrive in the Android space.
That goddamn app. Even though it's ugly and incomprehensible and barfs useless notifications at me, I keep using it. When I touch its stupid icon on my screen, it's a hate tap. It's a finger cringe. But I can't quit!

Cannabis makes you stupid. Wasn't it obvious?

People used to think smoking tobacco was harmless and/or beneficial too. Look how long it took to figure out that it wasn't.
Dutch study finds mathematics results suffer most from dope consumption – findings sure to fuel debate over steps towards legalisation

Pot doesn't make you stupid. It is no different than having a beer or six, depending on your willingness to be functional.

As long as it doesn't figure out how to get back to Earth, we're probably safe.

I just had to post this because this is where I live.
My little town's fifteen minutes of fame... Woot!
A new species of millipede known only to exist in the small city of Launceston, Tasmania has been discovered – and it's been named after the jackal-headed Egyptian God, Anubis. The species, Tasmaniosoma Anubis is named for its branching genitalia, which resemble the snout and ears of Anubis.

Blah blah blah. The distinction between prescriptive grammar (the stuff of grammar Nazis) and descriptive grammar (what people actually say and write) has been made for a long time. That doesn't mean that any English is correct if someone says it, or that some use of English isn't better than others.

Some use English unintentionally in ways that are imprecise, ambiguous or hard to understand and that is wrong. Some use English in ways that are ugly instead of beautiful and that is bad. Even in the absence of absolute rights and wrongs, there are still standards to which we may aspire, and I reserve the right to criticise those who are sloppy or lazy.
Never mind the grammar scolds. If people say it, it’s the right way to speak

All this article makes me want to do is go correct everyone's grammar.
