We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Phony Polonium

Read it.

BLUF: No, Arafat wasn’t murdered with polonium.

The claim Arafat was poisoned with polonium ignores a very important detail, as Brian Thomas writes: if Arafat had ingested polonium in 2004, there simply wouldn’t be any trace of it in his remains by now. That’s science not speculation.

Swiss scientists say Arafat had symptoms commonly linked to radiation poisoning, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and liver and kidney failure — but not two other classic symptoms, hair loss and a weaker immune system.

    In the 21st century, facts are no longer important for decision making.

    If Arafat was murdered, who should we reward?
