Everything published before is provisional. You have to read each paper on its own. A long time ago I blogged about the name preference effect — ie that people are more positively disposed towards things that sound like their name — so I might like science more because Scott and science start with the same two letters.

Thirty-five overweight people were asked to do the same amount of extra exercise. They differed wildly in how much weight they lost. Contrary to conventional wisdom, Gallup poll finds Clinton supporters are more likely to describe themselves as enthusiastic about their candidate than Sanders supporters.
Maybe some extra complications. See here ] The largest area of dry land under sea level, by volume, is the Qattara Depression in Egypt.
If it were ever connected to the Mediterraneanit would produce loads of hydroelectric power and form a giant lake in the middle of the Sahara. By my calculations it would also reverse one year worth of global-warming induced sea-level rise. Ideal Conceal is a handgun which can be folded up to look exactly like an ordinary cell phone.
Nothing can possibly go wrong. I am so past the point of trying to figure this out now.
