    That's why I included the second example. Meh, if you honestly don't want to believe facts because they oppose your worldview, go ahead. I won't stop you.

    Hogwarts School of Prayer and Miracles is the funniest thing I've read all month. Anyone who's looking for some laughs should read it. It's some of the most perfect satire I've ever seen.

    I'm halfway through the first book now, and I'm alternating between loving it and not wanting to read anymore. I'm not sure if I'll read past book one.

    I know. But the reproduction one is fairly widespread. The entire species concept is just humanity's attempt to impose order on chaos. It has merit, but is an outside attempt to categorize something.

    Probably not. If they can reproduce with other crickets of their species, then no. Sub-speciation, maybe. I'm not sure where the cut off is there. I think that might just be for ease of study.

    Because this was a tiny change. Also, 20 generation in a cricket is a few years, maybe. Twenty generations of humans? Elephants? A lot longer. And which is more likely to leave a fossil behind?

    Restricting the ability to leave the country arbitrarily is a serious rights violation. Personally, I believe the right of free movement is something that needs to be seen as a basic human right.

    I accidentally skipped about 150 pages of one of the Dune prequels. There was no effect on my understanding of the story. I didn't even notice it happened until I finished the book.

    Too early to see.

    Hopefully it won't negatively affect Indian-Pakistani relations. It probably puts the nail in the coffin for possible Indian aid in Burma, though.
