A simple mistake — 14 Comments

  1. They must have courses in stupidity in some university somewhere or perhaps in all universities there is a department of stupidity either way there is no shortage of alumni.

    • Nah!  Just someone jumping onto the Anti-Alcohol bandwagon.  What's the betting that "further research is needed"?  😉

  2. Please tell me this guy is a professor of physics and not  medicine or a related discipline!

  3. I raise my evening glass of white wine to your apt correction of that newspaper headline Grandad. On a technical point you note that a fetus in the womb doesn't breathe. But can it utter a happy sound approximating a burp of approval after mother has sipped a glass of red wine? Are olives and vol-au-vent snacks acceptable accompaniments to the wine tasting? I would welcome positive new research findings on this.

  4. That's in the same league as the recent ultrasound pics of a foetus  supposedly covering its nose when the mother smoked a ciggy. Message being, of course, "smoking when pregnant kills your baby, and he doesn't like it. See? Look at the pics and it's obvious".

    Do they really think we are that ignorant and naive? I really feel insulted that they disseminate this garbage and actually expect me to take it seriously. They are like children who haven't yet worked out that adults can see through their fantasies.

    • You mean these pictures?  😉

      Those articles are for those who can't read beyond a headline and who have an attention span measured in picoseconds.  They believe everything they read, because if it's in the paper [and written by a professor] it has to be true.

  5. Did you ever notice that articles such as the one you reference in your post, never allow comments? Kind of says it all right there doesn't it?

    • Those people in exalted high places don't allow comments from us mere plebs.  We must know our place.
