Cheers Robyn, I don't know why but I always figured Dr Ng was a GP but I've still seen her report dodgy stats which worries me.
Cheers Bart, it's no biggie just something it's good to nip in the bud early :)
Past 4 on a Friday, time to knock off!
...for bible study of course
Rankin used to go to the same gym as me a while ago. Let's just say lycra and not much of it. Poor old Mark Prebble would have to run off to Che's friend on the Terrace.
See, I knew we'd get this conversation rolling eventually... sssssfriday for God's sake!
Rolling? Jeez man, you've already got spanking, whacking to the Book of the Word and Christine Rankin mentioned. This conversation is avalanching!
Climate change is a politcial issue in that we may vote depending on which party believes the same scientific hypothesis as us or decides on the same course of action as us. But that is a political debate not a scientific one (with due respect to Bart and his excellent description of what scientific debate actually is).
So with no grounding in science how does one decide which party is correct? That's why we rely on the media. I've noticed TV3 started touting one of their reports as DOCTOR Lillian Ng (sp). What is she a doctor of? Not stats that's for sure.
I think then perhaps it is better to ask the politicians who they believe, then check those references as well as you can to make your decision and, where possible, don't use the media.
ps. I know this'll sound pissy but it's H a d y n (I just had to correct someone who was spelling it wrong for two months)
there should be a BDSM dungeon in the basement of every major corporation in nz
There is a gym in the basement of the State Service Commission that could be easily converted...
This is more of Friday morning grumble than anything and so Craig please take no offence at this (yours was just the first comment I read this morning):
I have no pretensions to be any expert in any science
Then why are you offering an opinion on a scientific issue? I have no training in law and so never offer opinions on legal issues. I always yell at the TV when I hear somebody say "I'm no expert but..." If you're not an expert, don't say anything else.
The GE issues is slightly different as there are culutral issues at play as well that need addressing.
I should probably write more but I need to go and have breakfast, on which I am truly an expert.
Spanking should still be legal but what they'll have to cut out is all that "you've been a bad boy/girl" talk.
Because that would make it for "corrective purposes"
Re: Stats and Mediawatch:
I also reccommend The Answers Guy in the Wall St Journal.
And students studying arts at Uni should be forced to...
