At first I thought this was a bit mental, but I quickly realised it's actually a quite brilliant way to spread the message.
Has anyone been following the #overlyhonestmethods thing which has gone viral on Twitter the past few days?
It's basically scientists from an array of disciplines making frank confessions about how they REALLY do science.
I can relate to a fair share of them :greengrin
I can't believe there wasn't already a thread about this. :greengrin Bacon roll anyone?
Apologies if this has already been posted
Was told on Monday that the " Craws Nest" ,Anstrutrher has closed and is being converted to sheltered housing
Will always be remembered as one of the venues for the Mercer V Duff & Gray meetings re "the take over "
Was there on a few occasions and...

That's how the MSF have described the Afghan Government's justification of the bombing of their hospital in Kunduz, which killed 22 people.
The United States military initially tried to justify the air strike, which they carried out at the request of Afghan forces, by saying that US soldiers...
An event in Glasgow to remember and recognise the armed forces turns into a farce. Sectarian nutters always have to hijack such events and ruin it...what's wrong with this country when we can't even do something like this without trouble?
So, 2 of Damien Hirst's "art" pieces were stolen.
For a start, they're bloody rubbish, they're just different coloured dots on a white background. Second, he created the larger one in 2005 and its worth £15000, then 3 years later just...
Sunday Herald sports writer sacked after using the term "bead-rattling" in an article about Celtic fans & Gordon Strachan.
Probably the fullest most grovelling apology I can recall seeing in the press.
Wondered what people's thoughts were on UKIP's idea to ban the full face veil worn by some Muslim women? I personally don't think it's the place of a Government to tell people what to wear...
I read a couple of days ago about a banned radical Muslim group that had put up dozens of posters around the London area, warning people of the dangers of Christmas and that Islam is the only way to solve the problems that are caused by Christmas.
On the homepage of their website (xmasisevil)...
Been struggling with my sexuality for some years and now I've met someone I really like. Any .netters with experience of coming out or considering it? Not an easy thing to talk about I know but just wondered how folk would react to me being bisexual?
what do people make of this?
I have to agree to an extent. I know it's hard to see the pictures on the news and not donate but Japan is not a poor country, and it is times like this where other parts of the world who...
I'm getting fed up with the inaccuracies in this council fanzine. For example: saying that the site of the old Portobello power station has football pitches and a bowling centre built on it. IIRC these are built on the site of the open air pool, and it's houses where the power station was - hence...
Just me or does anyone else fail to understand why people say they are from Essex when asked so?
Should we all start saying Midlothian? (Don't think we'd get the same cheer).
I'm sure there ARE towns and villages in Essex.
If only they realised how pathetic they sound.
Here's another inexplicably contentious one - moderate Muslims have - through the entirely legitiimate means of fund raising then buying property (the scoundrels!!!) - plans to build a inter-faith centre,...
With claims the Asian kid who was killed yesterday may have been captured on film as a "happy slapping" incident is it not time the media acted more responsibly and reported it for what it was - a deadly criminal assault?
Ok words dont stop mindless folks but should the media use the term...
A very interesting, sometimes amusing, speech from Lord Ashcroft.
It's a term used far too often for my liking...often by muslims who don't understand the questions that non muslims ask of their faith.
The main question I have is why can't I, as a non-believer in any faith not entertain a muslim female?
The answer is I just can't....because I'm not a...
"The regulation was approved back in 2011, but has not been enforced until now."
What on earth could have happened to motivate someone to push for legislation like this?
Can you imagine the debate? :hilarious
Blame society at it again. "Look where you're going" course urgently required.
Anyone else had the "pleasure" of doing one of these on-line tests when applying for a job?
I've just done one tonight and made a right royal james blunt of it. I thought I was good with numbers but obviously not. I spent too long on a hard question and panicked when I realised there were too...
I've noticed more and more people on Twitter, mainly Corbynistas and Momentum members it has to be said, arguing thst the polls are "fake news" or biased against Labour.
This is a very informative piece which busts those, and other, polling myths.
Excuse the link to the slightly "holier than thou" blog website, but I felt this merited a mention.
It seems that, not content with allowing these troglodytes to re-enact the 18th Century on July 12th...
Interesting stuff - especially this part ....
She said the real reason was television channels in the UK not willing to accept the show as it was.
She said: “They all wanted to cut it...
...has been become a more tired cliche then any so-called example of PC and is only deployed by right-wing bores and/or thickos who absorb tabloid prejudices and spew them out verbatim.
It was a free-for all in Edinburgh today. The IDF or whoever they are were allowed to march in Edinburgh so the left-wing counter demonstrators did what they do and marched in protest at their presence.
The feeling I got was that nobody else seemed to care about the issues they were going on...
Wish it'd be the last. FFS
Willie Rennie now calling the Conservatives and SNP the "Terrible Twins"
This from a man whose party jumped into bed with the Tories and sold it's voters down the river.
You couldn't make it up. :greengrin
After a young female reporter discussed the The's tax tribunal on BBC TV, she was subjected to a stream of foul online abuse that included, "ginger hag", "one ugly mother", "a pape bigot", an "ugly fenian *******", "a fenian cow" and worse, much worse.
Great to see them back, isn't it? :no way:...
Just a short rant.
It may just be as a result of ageing, but I'm find myself wanting to yell at the TV when the News comes on and interviews are held with members of the public to, presumably, "highlight the voice of the people". Last night for example:
Story on non-succession of catholics to...
Just watched a very fine documentary on 'Yesterday' - "Who Betrayed the Bomber Boys?" narrated by Stephen Fry, dealing with the RAF Bomber offensive throughout WW2. It was on earlier in the year, but I missed it then. Glad I caught it this time around.
Not going to post the video up as too gruesome but did anyone see/hear about this video? 2 men tortured 21 innocent people by battering them to death with a hammer. 1 of the videos leaked online and it is just disturbing. Just watched it just now and absolutely disgustin. How can you do that to...
Anyone else seen this yet?
Deserving of the enormous hype, best film I've seen in quite a while. I'm going to ludicrously declare it film of the year already.
Story on the BBC website about an English woman in Aberdeen who was the victim of a racially motivated assault. Now, the erse who dunnit needs to take a serious look at themselves, but it begs the question: If Anti-English abuse/violence is considered racial, doesn't it set a precedent for...
