In the standfirst I will make a fairly obvious pun about the subject matter before posing an inane question I have no intention of really answering: is this an important scientific finding?


In this paragraph I will state the main claim that the research makes, making appropriate use of "scare quotes" to ensure that it's clear that I have no opinion about this research whatsoever.

In this paragraph I will briefly (because no paragraph should be more than one line) state which existing scientific ideas this new research "challenges".

If the research is about a potential cure, or a solution to a problem, this paragraph will describe how it will raise hopes for a group of sufferers or victims. ...http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/the-lay-scientist/2010/sep/24/1

Sometimes the Guardian can be funny, the comments are good too.

This post consists entirely of a colon followed by the letter "D" because I am too lazy to type the acronym that represents the sentiment that I am rolling on the floor laughing my ass off.
