There's a chess cheating scandal. Yes, somehow it's both possible to cheat at chess and there are people who find it worth their while to do so. French people:
"According to the French federation, while international grand master Sebastien Feller, 19, was involved in a game, Cyril Marzolo followed developments over the internet and used computer software to establish the best next move. The answer was then sent by means of a coded text message to the third member of the team, Arnaud Hauchard. The third member would then sit himself at a particular table in the competition hall. Each table represented an agreed square on the chess board."
3. From Anonyman: The chart indicates that nuclear is a small % of energy consumption, but nuclear is only used to generate electricity. So they should have a chart showing electricity production (or consumption) where nukes would be 20-25%. The trick here is that petroleum, which the chart indicates is 37% of energy consumption all goes in our cars. So getting rid of nuclear electricity production would only make our electricity "dirtier" as we would use more coal. He's talking about this article, which is dumb even for the NYTimes.
