I've been super busy with school this semester -- no time for Atheist Nexus, sadly!!
If anyone who's around here a lot wants me to toss them moderation privileges to run this group or anything, just send me (Sara) a message! Thanks!

Removed ability to send mass messages to everyone in the group. At 1000+ members, that seems like asking for spam.

Offer still open if anyone active in the group wants moderation privileges, but it appears everything has been going smoothly with all kinds of great discussions without moderation. Fantastic! :)

So after reading that about.com web page, I went and did some hunting. Unfortunately, about.com, as per their usual, slightly misrepresent this situation. The speed of drowning is the same whether or not in salt or fresh water. And from the paramedic perspective, there are no stats indicating a difference in rescussitation success between near drownings in fresh vs salt water. A very large number of "fresh water" drownings, are unsupervised children in pools and bathtubs, mostly at home. So what my lungs look like after I'm drowned is not really a great concern to me! This is one of the reasons science is not always the best model for creating social guidelines, sometimes, even when the science is true, it is not relevant in the way we assume it to be.

Until today, I didn't know that fresh water in the lungs does more damage than salt water.

Newest book that looks worth reading, from one of my favourites, Ben Goldacre: Bad Pharma.

Well Boris, I think you're gonna have a hard time :)
Lots of armchair scientists everywhere though.
After my B.Sc. in biology I went on to my M.Sc. in zoology, but due to personal circumstance, I did not defend my thesis, I am therefore a "frustrated" biologist, as most interesting employment in biology requires graduate degrees. So I teach science, and work in a cross of paleo and tourism.
As for dating... I've 100% given up! Not enough people with a science education around, and it's probably the only kind of person I could  truly happily date. I'd like to disagree with myself, but having a higher education in a real science seems to be a real nutbreaker feature for getting along with people!
Many scientists are pretty independantly minded people, and with the soon to be 8 billion on the planet, I see no justification in pairing up.

But I wish you every luck :)

I know this isnt the dating group but I am very interested in talking to a female who is also a working scientist. Alas, I may not get that chance to be one but I really like scientifically minded females more then anything.
