You're more likely to get a job if you study 'social' sciences, say fuzzy-studies profs

Re: says

"Science and Democracy sounds an odd combination.

Is it science by consensus?"

Basically, yes. See The Structure of Scientific Revolutions by Thomas S. Kuhn

Scientists are people too, and when they get together in groups they behave like groups of people.

Looking at James Wilsden's bio, he used to be the Director of the Science Policy Centre at the Royal Society so he's not likely to be an eejit.

WTF?

Deutsch's unproven theorem paradox

So some scientist 10 years in the future (Nerd A) sends the proof of a mathematical theorem, which he copied from Book B back in time. The scientist at the LHC (Nerd B) writes this down and gets it published in a book (Book B). Where did the proof of the theorem come from?

Good luck with that one.

Jobs Horns

Still no blu-ray!

Even though Apple are listed as a contributor to the Blu-ray Disc Association.

Think I'll stick with my Sony Vaio.

Bad Apple!
