When Deepak Chopra says that HIV doesn't cause AIDS, it's a bad attitude that causes it, he is a complete and total fraud scientifically.

If he dropped the pseudo and just left it as "science"... this would be much worse.

No. Pseudo is the correct term. It is time to stand up against "alternative truths".

No need for ferociosity, pseudo works for me. Look up the definition of science, and even if you believe in Dr. Oz and Deepak Choprah as your own personal deities, pseudoscience still fits.

If it was ever called the Ford T, then yes. But it wasn't.

The first line of the Wikipedia article on the subject lists several names the car was referred to including simply "T." So... Ford T is not far-fetched.

I think you mean "reluctant breeders", not "reticent" which means unwilling to talk much about it.

Good quiz apart from .......Who's Pamela Anderson (famous for what?) and who is Tommy Lee and Kid Rock?......
+1
level 69
Jun 6, 2018
Pamela Anderson was famous for her . . . err . . . how to put this delicately? So, there was this TV show she was on called "Baywatch," and it featured a lot of scenes of women in swimsuits running in slow motion.

Catch my drift?

To answer the rest, Tommy Lee is the drummer for the American heavy metal band Mötley Crüe, and Kid Rock is an American singer.
