The whole point of science is that most of it is uncertain. That's why science is exciting--because we don't know. Science is all about things we don't understand. The public, of course, imagines science is just a set of facts. But it's not.  Freeman Dyson

Didn't someone post this already? Or, was that the Eagle Scout topic I am thinking about? Anyway, is it surprising?

Thing thing that blows my mind is that they actually kept any records at all about such a heinous crime occurring in their midst if they didn't plan on reporting it.

I mean, who keeps incriminating evidence like that laying around if they don't want people to find out about it?


Edit to add snarky comment

But I guess boys will be boys  &)

I show affection for my pets by holding them against me and whispering, "I love you" repeatedly as they struggle to break free.
