So, i was sitting in my psychology class earlier today and we are learning about reseach methods and all that fun stuff. My teacher went on to explain how when a researcher comes up with a theory…Continue
"They only times I've ever had anyone whisper when they ask me about my affiliation are 1) at work; in which case it's more a matter of not knowing who the nearest religious fanatic is, or 2) when dealing with a closed group of more even…"

"@DrinFace. How about the ludicrous and in my view quite ominous 2009 blasphemy law of the Republic of Ireland, enacted without the permission of the people. No doubt this was weaselled in to appease certain minority groups such as the…"
