Frequently Asked Questions

Are you guys for real?


You used my name in one of your articles. Can I sue you?

Our stories and names are complete fabrications and any resemblance to real people is completely coincidental. Please don’t sue us as that can be very expensive! We are a purely satirical website, and our expression¬†of free speech through¬†parody and satire is protected by Australian law.

Can I quote your articles for my next science project?

Please don’t.

Why do some of your articles have nothing to do with science and technology?

Ah… yeah, sometimes we forget what the categories are supposed to be. Sorry.

What came first, the chicken or the egg?

The chicken.

I’m a funny guy and I’d like to write for The Confounded Variable. Is that possible?
