Re: UCSB fizzix prof: "pseudoscientific fraud" of global war

I asked my physics professor about this today after class (I'm a UCSB undergrad and my professor knows Lewis). He started with, "Oh Hal Lewis! That guy is a nut!" and then we had a long conversation about global warming, honest scientific inquiry, and skepticism. Basically, the conclusion ...

Does it matter how long I preheat my oven?

So I'm cooking a pizza right now, and the instructions say, "for best results, preheat oven to 400 degrees Farenheit for 10 minutes." It specifies the actual cooking time right after that, so the only way I can think to interpret this is as an instruction to leave the oven at four-hundred ...
