In "Warp Drive Engine Would Travel Faster Than Light."

Great post, by the way. People should talk about physics more often.

Oh, I think it is a wonderful mathematical theory, and I really look forward to the day when we have the computational power to make and prove predictions with it, but that day is far, far away. At this point, calling it physics is a little much for me. But, I think our focus should be on other theories such as Loop Quantum Gravity. I may be biased, though. I came from an institution that was heavily against the dogmatic attitude of string theorist.

Unfortunately, string theory is currently completely unprovable. Give it a couple thousand years.

In "New drugs in the pipeline. Very soon now we'll see even more bio-mass thrusting us aside at the check-out queue. "

Excellent link There will still be significant difference between those who earned the muscle through hard work and those who gained it through a drug. A lot of weight lifting not only leads to muscular changes, but also changes to your central nervous system in how motor units are recruited. Essentially, you not only get stronger but also more efficient in the motions. This is one reason why body builders might be physically bigger than Olympic lifters, but the Olympic lifter will (usually) be able to move more weight at a much lighter weight.

In "Why Harvard Wants You To Be Unhealthily Thin."

Hm, so we have a minority scientists/researchers/doctors who say that being obese is not unhealthy, and we then have the majority of scientists/researchers/doctors who disagree and say that it is quite unhealthy. Of course, there must be some sort of conspiracy at work here. That is the only explanation.

Actually, why don't you just download a weeks worth of content from MoFi and write a perl script grab each unique name from the "posted by" link, then sum the names? Hell, when I'm done with my homework I may just do that.
