#5045: Gee, fraud detected in econazi research. What a surprise THAT is.

And, as usual, they had to make shit up because their thesis wasn't borne out by reality.

In this case, it's the supposed "harmful effects" of GMO crops. The data was fudged. Just like with global warming.

The very same people who worship science as the do-all-be-all of human endeavor have absolutely no trouble whatsoever with faking data to make it say what they want. The only problem is, science doesn't work if you do that; the process must be followed with integrity and honesty if you expect to get anything useful out of it.

Of course, there are different values for "useful", and anything that helps the leftists seize control of the populace is "useful" regardless of whether or not it's correct. Which is why they do this kind of shit.

In the "dang it" column, it appears that I can no longer get a mini-ITX motherboard with a dual-core Atom processor for that extra-cheap "under $30" that was available in December. That's the kind of thing you have to jump on when you find it, sadly.

But there'll be other opportunities. I still need to figure out what to do about the Mac Mini, anyway.

No plans for today. It's warmer today than it's been for the last three days, but we're still planning to stay home and do as little as possible. I might go get a loaf of bread in a few hours.

Last night Mrs. Fungus and I watched Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, which I bought on DVD a couple years ago, for the princely sum of about $5, and which had never been unwrapped.

I had forgotten that Gert Frobe (Goldfinger!) and Desmond Llewellyn (Q!) were in the movie, though Q only appeared in one scene; I had not forgotten that the original book was written by Ian Fleming and the movie was directed by Albert Broccoli, though, just like the Bond films--and holy crap, I hadn't realized that Gert Frobe could sing and dance.

All told, we thoroughly enjoyed the movie. It's been decades since I saw it last.
