So that's the original (not a compressed version)? If not you could run it though Musicbrainz Picard (http://musicbrainz.org/doc/MusicBrainz_Picard), it doesn't recognise the version posted but might manage with a better quality version.

IQ scores are standardised to a median (basically the same as average in a normal distribution) of 100 and a standard deviation of 15. So assuming a normal distribution (pretty correct) 68.2% of people will be between 85 and 115 (34.1% each way). Around 9% of people will have an IQ below 80. Mental ...

Uhm, why if it's a homeopathic solution do they say to take 1-3 tablets? According to the (bullshit) "Law of the Infinitesimal Dose" that they promote 3 tablets would be less effective than 1 so why would they say that apart from making you spend even more money on tablets that every test ...

But with VBR (Variable Bit Rate, uses more when it needs to) you can go down to about 200k average (V2 setting in LAME) with a fairly minimal loss of quality (on standard equipm...

Bought ticket for Boom and will do Ozora as well. Must say the Ozora line-up does appeal more. But could just be the extra unknowns on the Boom lineup (being 9 days rather than 6). There's a lower signal to noise ratio at Boom but the signal is probably just as good. Yeah, I really wonder just how m...

I don't mean to trivialise the issue, but I just think that the world is over medicated as it is, particularly when it comes to psychological conditions.

Anthropology isn't a science, it's a humanities discipline. Science is only relevant to human behaviour on a biological/chemical/physiological level; what can or cannot be proved or disproved.
