it was ok

I remember reading the article when they released their findings in Dec 2007. And I also remember that's where I learned that poinsettas are fine and that you don't lose any more heat from your head than you do from any exposed part of your body. Also that it is a myth that we only use 10% of our brains. It was a quick read and the only other thing I learned was that sometimes pharmaceuticals are very bad: like changing the colour of the green Prozac pill to pink, call it Sarafem and charge more money for it.
