Archimedes Plutonium in the news

When two professors were murdered recently at Dartmouth University, the police followed a number of leads whilst looking for the killer. One of the leads was a disgruntled former dishwasher named Ludwig Poehlmann, better known as Archimedes Plutonium, author of numerous Usenet rants about his revolutionary religioscientific theories.
''It was (Hanover Police Chief Nick) Giaccone's impression that Plutonium, although a very odd individual, was not associated with the murders ... and that no further investigation was required into Plutonium,'' a police report states.

Sounds a bit Lynchian, wouldn't you say?

My friend Jen, who posts to my blog, went to Dartmouth, and I swear she's talked to me about this guy. I think she knows him. Apparently, it's hard not to know him, as the town that Dartmouth is located in is about the size of a thumbtack. Perhaps I'll get her to drop in and elaborate...

That site is fantastic! I love his debunking of Darwinian evolution based on the existance of cloning. He forgets that asexual reproduction existed _first_ and sexual reproduction evolved later on, possibly as a response to parasitism or unstable environments. Asexual / clonal "species" are well suited to stable environments where evolution is unnecessary, and most eukaryotic asexual species can still undergo sexual reproduction if they need to.
