      I think some (most) of my friends are already infected with it!

        Long time, no chat. How you been? Come to think of it, are you a subscriber to my lab rat theory? lol

          Been good - would be better without big G.

          Sometimes I think not even rats.  Mice maybe, or semi-trained cockroaches. sad

            Bacteria in a petri dish has also come to mind.

            After yesterday's revelations re: HP and G, I've lost all desire to continue work on my latest hub. Not good.

      Hog wash. Para! This article is total rubbish! Anyone using just half their brain will tell you facts are not necessary if you have common sense.

        I have long suspected this. You are right.

      How typical of you!!!!

      As soon as someone mentions facts, you try to change the topic.

    Fact-Resistant Humans:
    "While scientists have no clear understanding of the mechanisms that prevent the fact-resistant humans from absorbing data, they theorize that the strain may have developed the ability to intercept and discard information en route from the auditory nerve to the brain. “The normal functions of human consciousness have been completely nullified.”
    VS
    Stupidity:
    "Stupidity is a lack of intelligence, understanding, reason, wit or sense.
    Stupidity may be innate, assumed or reactive – a defence against grief or trauma."

    This strain has actually been around for a long time.

      Careful. It is a TOS violation to confuse this forum with facts.

    What about pseudo facts?  The organisms which infest the internet, mimicking facts and once absorbed, evolve uncontrollably into erroneous erectus?

    Meanwhile, if interested, here's My Philosophy of Life. What's yours? big_smile

      big_smile big_smile big_smile  I love 'My Philosophy of Life!  Unfortunately, I've been socially modified by my parents.  This took place before the mighty G came into existence.  Do you think it's heresy to refer to B.G?  (Before you-know-who.)
