Higher Fluoride Levels in Water Lowers Kids' IQs

And that's just what we need to make the movie Idiocracy predictive. A recently published Harvard University meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has concluded that children who live in areas with highly fluoridated water have "significantly lower" IQ scores than those who live in low fluoride areas.

Rowing the Rogue

We're leaving tomorrow and I'm to row a raft again. How did everybody find out that I can row? I guess I better read the guidebook about the river. I'm mostly packed and ready to do the pre-trip garden harvest and cooler pack in the morning. The temperature is going to be in the 100's. I have a big hat from Africa, a long sleeved shirt and an umbrella for shade. I have a lot of water freezing in the two house freezers. The meat (for a taco meal and a curry) is precooked and frozen solid. I went to the big local beer store (John's) and picked a sampling of beers, mostly IPA's but also a couple of porters and stouts. Will brought a German lager. Hopefully it won't be too hot to drink beer. Is that possible?
