So “scientists confirm” is good enough to crown a car-park skeleton King of All England, but not for climate science? Hypocritical cunts!

@uniofleicester “World first”? How many curved skeletons of Richard III do you have? Is it like the shin bone of Jesus as a child?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to uniofleicester

Queen_UK If they’d have just asked, one could have told them Richard III was under that car park. One knows where all the Royal skeletons are.

@PeteDotAscian @intrepidfear “It just does.” The logical rationality of Tony Abbott. Fair enough then.

This has to be said to all. How does a remake of something, even a shit one, “screw up your childhood” or “spoil the original”? They remain.

via Janetter for Mac

@intrepidfear @PeteDotAscian Explain to me again how making a new thing “spoils” the old thing? The old thing remains intact.
