The American education system rears its ugly head (although it could just be Doctor X's mom) once more.

It's the British empire through the ages.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

That dog graph provoked the following thought (or maybe it was just the Krebs Cycle in my brain overreacting temporarily*):

Has it not been claimed that breeds are merely a social construct and have no basis in biology?

That would be silly.

I don't know. I've not heard such a claim for dogs. Only people. Of course we use different words, "race" rather than "breed". The breeds though are artificial creations, not the result of natural evolution.

The income graph isn't thought provoking enough.

I want to see to top 1%, 0.1%, 0.01%, 0.001% etc on a logarithmic scale. 8)
