It should be completely legal to shoot reporters who write articles like this in the head.

Look! I have found a "scientific study" that sounds "silly" when I take key words "out of context" and "present" them against a "cliched backdrop" of "excessive government spending." "Real people" will read this and understand that "scientists" do not have any "common sense" which means that I can "dismiss" anything else they might say. Ha, I'm so "clever," and I use "quotes" very well, too.

You could get a job at town hall.

Were you an unpopular loser in high school?  That would help too.

TFA: cutting-edge fish passage research

I wonder if that phrase had ever been written before.

TPers freaking love touting their ignorance about science.  One was spouting off the other day about how ridiculous it is that people study external factors that affect crime rate, such as weather and temperature.  Yeah, like figuring out when the "busy season" for armed robberies is pure silliness that helps no one in particular.

Guiding philosophy: "This concept should be easily explained by childish logic and/or old wives' tales, and thus has no business being looked at scientifically."  Let me remind everyone that this is the 21st century.

That's a lot of quotes in this "news" "article" written by this "journalist," which makes me wonder either she has rarely had an "original thought" in her life or is overly reliant on "sarcasm" in order to do her "job."

Well I should hope that fish swim well or else they would drown.

And yet you'll still see people who, on one level or another, oppose this mentality, still suggesting common sense as an answer to problems.

Typical libby lib, oh poor murderer it's not your fault because it was hot outside.

The Washington Free Beacon - The paper for people who think the Washington Examiner is too left-wing.

But yet my grant applications for my study of the flight properties of poodles keep getting turned down.

Haven't a number of places wiped out entire species of fish by, for example, putting in a weir slightly too high for those species to make their way back to a spawning location, or whatever? I imagine knowing the swimming capabilities of fish would be a fairly important thing to know for an agency one of whose major activities includes looking after fish.

the fish should swim pretty good, they went to school for it?

I think the more important question is: do they have maps?

But their ability to climb trees is pretty lacking.

Reading comprehension is not your strong suit, I see.

What did the fish say when he swam into a concrete wall.

Dam.

When did science become such a punching clown (and why did we let this happen)?

The Washington Free Beacon on the Geek tab. Great. As if it wasn't stupid enough on the Politics tab, now the idiot whosubmits these is getting them greened on the Geek tab. Farkin' A.

Did the Stupid tag take the day off? 'Cos Stupid trumps Strange here.

And people wonder why some of us hate paying taxes and/or government. Sheesh.
