    Why does this article use meters and miles as units of measure in the same sentence? This is a jarring editorial error and also a non-scientific practice. Instead, use universally-recognized units of measure, the units of measure that scientists use, the metric system, throughout all articles.

      Miles is obviously not an SI and would not be accepted in a scientific journal. But non-scientific? Just because it is in common conventional units in the USA? Get off your high horse! Metric and SAE units are not at war and the metric system was not put in place fight non-French units. It was put in place because of all of the industry specific units that existed in France at the time.

    Study shows that walking off a cliff raises the risk of death. Study shows that swallowing bleach actually increases the risk of death! Study shows that smoking in bed and falling asleep — INCREASES THE RISK OF DEATH! Incredible!

    According to the bible God loathes suicide. If we know everything that can cause death and we do not avoid those things then any death is suicide. With paradoxes like this the return or rapture can’t be far away.
