And here we see why intelligent, logical thought could actually be the worst thing for our species. I will hold back on my patent, thank me in any way you see fit (ignoring me works)

Incidentally, I used to work with a bloke with very aggressive psoriasis. The cleaner asked me if he ate a lot of sausage rolls due to the sediment around his desk.

Dust isn't made up uniquely of dead skin cells.

Thanks for vacating the patent.

ah, but my point was that scientists can talk bollocks and it can't be verified or otherwise. what is the point, if it is meaningless (this line of enquiry, I mean, but moiwyw).
