Wrapping 'post-modernism week' we have this video explaining why a packet of zero-calorie Splenda has 4 calories. What I like of course is the way a student uses science to prove this, then records a video for YouTube. When you wonder why people don't believe in authorities or facts any more, consider perhaps why we allow non-facts to inform FDA-approved food lables. I got this from George Couros, who asks, "Do we ask our students to do this type of work in our schools?  Not only tackling ideas but sharing them through a medium that reaches so many people." And of course we don't, though the supply of material to work with is endless.
