Labradoodles and quantum physics

@Simon Neill - But at least when teaching labradoodles Quantum Physics, they do learn it (but, they also don't at the same time). The real problem with this situation, though, is that they might chase Schroedinger's (US Spelling) cat.

US sorority girls in booze-fuelled orgy of violence

Cannot be true

We here on the left side of the pond know that this cannot be true. We're taught that women are incapable of violence, unless they've been abused. But, in such cases, knowing that only men are capable of abuse, their violence is still the fault of a man.

New inside out hover-magnet fusion reactor debuts at MIT

I think we have other problems with fusion

The real problem with fusion is the energy it takes to contain and compress the plasma to allow fusion to begin (and be sustained). Stars do this with their intense gravity (it's also the gravity that produces the energy to 'ignite' the fusion). Currently, it takes more energy to contain/compress the plasma than we get out of it. Increasing the amount of fuel fused will only increase this demand to contain/compress the plasma. I believe we'll need to find some other means than magnetic fields for this purpose.

Sears told to destroy data gathered by online tracking software

A point of clarification

The article states that Sears owns K-Mart, but, it's actually the other way around. K-Mart owns Sears.
