    [–] Google says the built-in microphone it never told Nest users about was 'never supposed to be a secret' flamespear 1 points ago in worldnews

    Maybe our devices starting with our phones should be more modular and lego like. When you get home you can just pull the part with the mic off.

    Or you know, just the BATTERY.

    [–] Japan suffers worst measles outbreak, 167 cases reported flamespear 4 points ago in worldnews

    The scientific method is more or less watching something, and seeing if you get the same result consistantly. We only started to understand things in a more detailed level after we had instruments good enough to discover bacteria and other germs. We still knew how to cut off body parts, staunch bleeding, improve vision. We knew getting rid of puss by letting maggots eat it off somehow helped people survive. We still called it medicine before we understood it well. Medicine is the process of managing health. Just because today we mostly use the scientific method doesn't suddenly invalidate all the observational work done prior to it. I never said plants cure viruses or implied that.

    The thing is people can have biological kids and do the same thing so it seems like it's still better if they're basically giving the kids away =/

    I'm willing to bet almost anyone that wants to adopt would be better than whatever fate those kids end up going through waiting.

    Your local health department should have records.....at least that's the way it was in my county. But when I was growing up the K-12 school required vaccines.

    Western is just to differentiate from traditional medicine. Sure lots of it is bullshit but some of it is based on observation and the mechanisms involved probably arent well understood. But you can't argue that watching a plant cure diarrhea or a headache or breaking a fever isn't medicine because that kind of traditional medicine isn't that far removed from the scientific method.

    Kindergarten is like preschool in many countries, it's like 2-5 year olds.

    They should also get chicken pox vaccines as well if they never had chicken pox or the vaccine because it is really serious to get it as an adult.

    You can do a work and holiday program in Australia, work on farms and regular shops and travel around. You'll meet people from all over the world.

    Do you think the reporting in the slums and countryside where the most children are being born is very good?

    Yeah but using oil for electricity is pretty terrible.

    [–] Islamic State teen 'shocked' after UK revokes her citizenship - Channel NewsAsia flamespear 1 points ago in worldnews

    I feel like citizenship shouldn't be revoked...they should be allowed to come home...and then go to prison forever.

    You know what KSA has unlimited amounts of? Sunshine and desert. Is there a better candidate for solar power? I mean really?

    The problem is right now there are huge barriers to adoption and it's much cheaper to have your own.
