According to a radio ad I heard this morning there is a Penis Enlargement drug that has literally shattered science.

So there you have it. Science was shattered by the inimitable might of the cocksmith.

Science has been shattered. It is no more. By a penis no less.

I'll be in Mexico. I tried to tell my wife she can go without me, there's a lecture I want to go to, but that didn't go over so well.

Russia to unveil new Spacecraft today



Quote:
A number of Russian reports have described recent studies looking at the possibility of a lunar orbital station, LOS. Such an outpost would also serve as a hub for lunar modules, which would deliver crews from lunar orbit to the surface of the Moon. The 200-day mission requirement probably provides some hint about Russian plans to eventually build a permanently occupied lunar outpost, similar to Nasa's lunar base developed under its Constellation programme.

Russia is also apparently looking at building another space station aparently.


So. Cool.

No no! Dont you see? O2 is far too complex for it to have been formed by chance. It is impossible for two oxygen molecules to 'magically' combine in nature. This is yet another example of Irreducible Complexity.
