This is so sad.

This was New Hampshire in 1987. It has been 29 years, and the speech hasn't changed even a little.

"“People don’t only think that leaving children alone is dangerous and therefore immoral,” the researchers write. “They also think it is immoral and therefore dangerous."

Totally agree on the main point: overzealous children supervision in modern urbanistic western society has gone too far and edges on perversion.

But to nitpick on the scientific points, the analysis is incomplete.

Consider vaccination: if everybody is vaccinated, you can safely skip yours and be relatively safe; if few are vaccinated — you'd definitely want a shot.

The fact that people tend to overestimate risks when it comes to children, this very mentality flaw by itself leads to risks being low. Every little suspicion is picked up and checked.

Is it good or not? Better statistics needed, but for sure it's a balance between the 'nanny state' and 'free-roaming' extremes. And I don't see a better way for finding that balance than trial and error. You can't find thay balance by reasoning.

Exciting read.
Who says the outcome needs to be uncertain for it to be a good thriller.

Drone on K2. Not actually on the summit, but at Camp I, 6,100 meters (20,000 ft) above sea level. The drone could barely fly because of the thin air.

It was a deal that wasn't supposed to cost taxpayers an extra dime. Now California's annual tab is in the billions, and the cost keeps climbing.

Just yesterday I was sitting with expectant parents whose first baby is due next week. They both support vaccinating their daughter on the recommended CDC schedule, but mom comes from a family that…

When you compare 204 and 359 antigens to about 3,000 to 12,000, just 30-40 years ago, that’s a huge reduction in exposure as well as additional protection against 6 more diseases! Additionally, as the antigen dose in each vaccine has decreased, there has been a corresponding drop in both the amount of preservatives in each vaccine

To end the night, I leave you with something more serious. Advice from an emergency room doctor on how you tell someone the worst possible news.
Do not ever say he was lucky that he did not feel pain.
