    “MRSA—a bacterial infection more deadly than AIDS”
    That is an extremely stupid and extremely wrong sentence.

    There are more deaths from flu than from AIDS and more from car accidents. Still, you won’t go around saying that getting the flu is more deadly than AIDS. An infection with MRSA doesn’t mean that you are going to die from it, you can just recover. That is not the case with AIDS.

    Look: The difference is, that MRSA is extremely common, many people have a constant population of it on their body. Often they get their wounds infected with it and have no problem with it. If your immune system is weakend however, it can get serious and you can’t fight it with antibiotics. Still, you can survive it, and many people do. It is more deadly than AIDS like heart attacks are – by number. Still it’s a completely different problem and even comparing it to AIDS is very questionable – and yes, I’d say stupid.

    I call b.s. on the dung beetle. The “scientific” test of using a planetarium and changing the star patterns proves nothing since the results were the same for both. All it proves is the dung beetle can roll in a straight line for some unknown reason. I don’t even know if that is a real dung beetle fact. Seems like a disadvantage to roll only in a straight line. What about obstacles? While there are some facts here and insects abilities are really cool, to exaggerate them or mix fact with fiction here is irresponsible in a time where people look to the internet for facts. The true facts are way more interesting than the made up facts.
