Re: 1379: "4.5 Degrees"

Nitrous oxide is 300 times more warming per unit than CO2, and is also a byproduct of gas engines, agriculture, and other activities. The US emits 400 million metric tons of it per year, compared to 5,000 million metric tons of CO2. 400x300 means the equivalent of 120,000 million tons of CO2 My math...

Re: 1063: "Kill Hitler"

BHG only implies he killed Hitler in 1945. What actually happens is this: He goes back and kills Hitler in 1914, in a bunker in WWI. The Allies win WWI and have the treaty of Versailles, causing great resentment and instability in Germany. However, without Hitler, this doesn't lead to the Nazis gai...

Re: 0922: "Fight Club"

It's always been funny to me how "Fight Club" has one of the most Misaimed Fandoms of any movie ever. Why do you act, like drinking the industrial-fascist cool-aid would be in any way related to “growing up”, instead of just having given up on life and this world in general? I found that t...

Re: What would you do if time travel was real?

Forget Hitler, I want to wipe out the early Communists. Marx, Engles, etc. That way, not only do I prevent the rise of Nazism (and it's attendant wars and mass-killings) as a reaction to Communism, but also all the mass-killing that tends to come with the various risings of the Communist regimes. No...

Re: Are Unions Still Relevant?

I'm going to interject a little anecdote, if I may. My parents are teachers (retired.) My father was President of his school's teacher's union (NEA) for many years, and negotiated several contracts for them. One year, when I was in high school (in a neighboring district), some of the teachers decide...

Re: 0834: "Wikileaks"

Presumably wikileaks is about promoting transparency in government, To me, some recent releases, such as that concerning the list of "critical infrastructure" doesn't seem to have as much to do with "transparency" as they seem to have to do with "attempting to blackmail the...

Re: 0834: "Wikileaks"

Yes, people deserve privacy, since is their own lives. No, Goverments do not deserve privacy, for they are a public entity, they are supposed to be the representation of what we, as a collective nation, believe to be the best. Yes, people who talk about themselves with some else, even a goverment d...

Re: I'd like to know the name of this book/short story/comic

Thread resurrection! 2. Some story about people who would go back in time to retrieve items for some kid or something who kept seeing them in story books. For example, they once went back in time to get a car, and another time went back to get a blue whale but instead ran into a kracken. Eventually ...
