I had a dream about a week ago about a goalie getting a break away and scoring the final goal for his hat trick. What has Canada done to me?
Most atheist, I don’t think, have to go through the steps that I did.
Could someone explain something to me? When I started to become a fan of science I started using the phrase “data is king” to refer to scientific evidence (not to the spock-wannabe of “The Next Generation”). Anyway, as I was talking research methods class, learning how to write scientific papers, we were told that ‘data’ is a plural word. So that meant what I was saying was wrong, and the correct way to say it is “data are king”. Since I am more interested in how words or a phrase sound or feel I didn’t like “data are king”. It’s too clunky and doesn’t have the same command to it as “Data is king”. I posted this some time ago on facebook and a friend of greater grammatical and scientific understanding explained that, in a certain way, “Data is king” can still be correct. I can not find it on my profile and I cannot remember what it was he said. Was he right? If so, why was he right (or wrong)?
In the process of building two new close up pads! I bought all the stuff to make one, and ended up having enough to make a large one and a small one. It will be an exciting few days of assembling until my brand new rare cards arrive!
