“I think it would be hard if George Washington came back from the dead and he chose Abraham Lincoln as his vice president, I think it would have been very hard for them to beat me,”
-Donald Trump


And I reckon if Mickey Mouse and Goofy had the presidency, they couldn't have done any worse than Trump.

«Σούρτα φέρτα πάει να πει το ήξεις αφήξεις στα ιταλικά.

Όταν θεραπεύεται το κάταγμα, τότε το λέμε παλινόστηση, δηλαδή, ότι μπαίνουν πάλι τα οστά στη θέση τους, όπως ήταν πριν τα τσακίσουμε.

Όταν ο ατμός παράγεται έξι φορές ταχύτερα, το λέμε εξάτμιση.

Ετεροφαλή είναι τα αδέλφια που προέρχονται από τον ίδιο πατέρα. Από την ίδια μάνα λέγονται ετεροθηλή.

Like a virgin (mother): analysis of data from a longitudinal, US population representative sample survey

Abstract

Objective
To estimate the incidence of self report of pregnancy without sexual intercourse (virgin pregnancy) and factors related to such reporting, in a population representative group of US adolescents and young adults.

Design Longitudinal, population representative sample survey.

Setting Nationally representative, multiethnic National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health, United States.

Participants 7870 women enrolled at wave I (1995) and completing the most recent wave of data collection (wave IV; 2008-09).

Main outcome measures Self reports of pregnancy and birth without sexual intercourse.

Results 45 women (0.5%) reported at least one virgin pregnancy unrelated to the use of assisted reproductive technology. Although it was rare for dates of sexual initiation and pregnancy consistent with virgin pregnancy to be reported, it was more common among women who signed chastity pledges or whose parents indicated lower levels of communication with their children about sex and birth control.

Conclusions Around 0.5% of women consistently affirmed their status as virgins and did not use assisted reproductive technology, yet reported virgin births. Even with numerous enhancements and safeguards to optimize reporting accuracy, researchers may still face challenges in the collection and analysis of self reported data on potentially sensitive topics.

Overzealous profanity filter bans paleontologists from talking about bones

A virtual conference was thrown into confusion when the platform hosting the event came with a pre-packaged ‘naughty word’ censor

Fri 16 Oct 2020

Participants in a virtual paleontology session found themselves caught between a rock and a hard place last week, when a profanity filter prevented them from using certain words – such as bone, pubic, stream and, er, beaver – during an online conference.

The US-based Society of Vertebrate Paleontology (SVP) held its annual meeting virtually this year due to the pandemic, but soon found its audience stifled when they tried to use particular words.

Convey Services, which was was handling the conference, used a “naughty-word filter,” for the conference, outlawing a pre-selected list of words.

“Words like ‘bone’, ‘pubic’, and ‘stream’ are frankly ridiculous to ban in a field where we regularly find pubic bones in streams,” said Brigid Christison, a master’s student in biology attending the event, in an interview with Vice.

To root out wrongly identified “naughty words”, SVP members created a spreadsheet tracking all the words that seem to have been banned, and shared it on Twitter. It included: damn, hell, ball, stroke, pubis, wang, jerk, knob, stroke, stream, erection, dyke, crack and enlargement.

“You will have to pull yourself back to the last century. I hate acronyms"

Judge Anthony Kelly warning Novak Djokovic's lawyers not to use acronyms during the tennis star's Federal Circuit court hearing in Melbourne yesterday.
( In which case I advise the judge that he stays well clear of this website).:-)
