    Default Hello All

    Found this place and stopped in, although I suspect the novelty will wear off very quickly - most of the more entertaining posters are one-trick ponies.

    I wonder if the people back in the 1990s, when the internet was really starting to take off, envisioned this board when they were talking about how much better informed the public would be.

    Every little bit helps. My own experiences show that these forums can and do teach a great deal about science. There are some, though, that teach more politics and all teach inter-personal relations...
