Thu May 16, 2013
Good point. Every public pool of a decent size should have a couple lanes sectioned off for lap swimming. But lap swimmers do take up more space- you can fit perhaps 4 (not on a swim team all at the same pace) in a 25 yard x 2 yard lane.
How important is a college 'pedigree?'
Fri Mar 15, 2013

Experts discount claims of U.S. deaths from Japan radiation
Wed Dec 21, 2011
But much, much less than 4% of those cases developed and caused mortality in less than three months. So Fukushima didn't *cause* cancers in the US. Those cancers had other causes. Hardly any cancers start and kill people inside of three months.
