I love the California method, however I'll take this as a short term fix.

And this is why I don't trust science (and do). Always check the sources and then check that they checked theirs. Then reproduce the results. Then we can say its true.

So apparently playing StarCraftII (and one would presume other real time strategy games) has a positive effect on a person's cognitive functions. So its not that I'm smart, its just that I play a lot of games from the craft series... You know, my grades did go up after I started playing WarCraft II...

Perhaps smarter, but I think you were always smart.

Once again proving that children are not the problem. It also, just as importantly, shows that learning and education are not about memorizing a list of facts, but about having the ability to ask questions and interpret information.

As always, the drug war has a great pyrrhic success! Good job guys, tax payer dollars hard at work.

On Sept. 29th, SpaceX successfully completed a demonstration mission of the upgraded Falcon 9 rocket, delivering 4 satellites to orbit and demonstrating a number of technology firsts.

I closed my finger in my apartment door on friday. It still hurts and makes it painful to type. I'm not a fan.

The more trustworthy a society the more economically successful it is. What effect do you suppose corruption has on that trust? This is a great talk on the effect of oxytocin on people.

Give children anything and they'll learn everything they can about it!
 
As I started reading this, I thought, "Whoah, that sounds like Neal Stephenson's The Diamond Age." And then the article's author says the same thing. Very informative about human nature and about ways kids learn:
