      more or less, yeah. neo-phrenology is basically what all these measures basically boil down to at the end of the day, as much as the people who bring them to fruition tend to protest otherwise.

    This is from almost 3 years ago, and I can't find anything showing that this was ever anything more than a research experiment. Has something in particular made this article worth looking at now?...

    Edit: Removed for now, I'll reinstate it if there's a reasonable reason for submitting. Right now it just strikes me as years-old outrage-bait.

      My bad. I didn't even look at the date on the article. It just popped up in one of my news feeds today. Deletion seems reasonable.

    Good as long as they don't ask for my DNA. Then they'd find out I wasn't from earth.

    I'm sure there is no possible way in which this could turn out to be extremely racist.
