In the scientific world confirming, through observation and testing, a hypothesis is a monumental accomplishment worthy of high accolades.

Another reason NOT to click

It is a long standing statement of fact that the general internet public is a click happy bunch of folks with little concern or thought for what might be real or not. Currently, coinciding with the cascading avalanche of information on the disaster of Flight MH17, there is an influx of malware, false stories, and spam, permeating the internet.
