‘This has been a common misconception for some time,’ said paper author and environmental engineer Michael Waring of the Drexel University in Philadelphia.

I saw this on BBC news this morning. And “they” know how much it infuriated me because I can’t find the news clip.

Anyhoo – From the Daily Mail dated yesterday.

Check it out yourselves.

I’ve thrown my teddy in the corner and crossed my arms. Not playing today :o(
