For people to stop buying educations?
Anything produced by pharmaceutical companies that's on the market had to pass scientific rigor from the FDA, not to mention their own labs. Side effects are unavoidable from any treatment strong enough to do anything. What's important is that they happen only in rare cases (something the FDA tests). Read more
"A preponderance of studies supporting it" is nonsense. There are no rigorous scientific studies supporting any perceivable non-placebo effects from acupuncture (except, as noted in the article, basically the same effects that would come from repeated scratching), period. Read more
A wooden arrow, nevermind, a golden one, would never come close to hitting the ship in a trillion attempts.
When your computer begins to have issues, try shooting a golden or copper arrow at the tower. That's the problem. More of a metal which is used to make a component adds nothing to overall stability.
You can't just chuck ingots of aluminium at a car to repair a broken engine. You need to process it into parts and install them a certain way. This is the same thing. It stretches suspension of disbelief too far — especially since previous scenes already demonstrated the gold being processed in a specific way.
When I squinted, Tom Riley looked a bit like Tom Mison, which made me wish for The Doctor taking on the Headless Horseman. Hell, this episode was almost as much fun to watch as an average episode of Sleepy Hollow. So, with apologies to Genevieve Valentine (and my own lack of decent screencap software)...
Because it didn't hit any engine that we saw, just some outside panel. It'd be like pouring gasoline on the trunk of a car and expecting that would make it go faster.
Any form of censorship? Including self-censorship, which this is? There's nothing wrong with deciding for yourself not to say something (or broadcast something, in the Beeb's case). Most people would call that tact.
When it's done for the right reasons, the correct word for it isn't "censorship," it's "editing."
censorship by the government = bad. A choice by a creator to edit the irk or a company to edit it's production in light of present events =/= censorship and isn't really worthy of condemnation. I lived in the USSR where censorship was an actual every day occurrence. This ain't it.
Except this isn't censorship. This isn't the BBC bowing to pressure from groups who feel their content is inappropriate and suppressing that content in response. This is the BBC recognizing that it might be in poor taste to show a beheading on TV in wake of recent events. I'm sure the scene will be edited back in… Read more
Something happens in the middle east and everyone just loses their head.
