Re: Trump presidency

Yeah, I was there thinking 'pretty sure he was using it against Germans, being an ethnic minority doesn't mean you don't count'. Also, there's not much of a difference between scooping up innocent people to kill them with gas rather than just killing innocent people with gas on the street.

Your doctor does not do medical research on you, or perform experiments on his patients. This isn't actually true. It depends on the doctor.

Yeah, I guess. But they never look at tongue cleaning by itself so doesn't really make much sense.

No, but then you still have the problems matching up the circulations. Anyway, a kidney transplant is the way you should go.

I'm not disputing that fragmenting it will be difficult. I'm disputing that if we did have a magical way to fragment it to a 'cloud of fragments of the same aggregate mass and kinetic energy' that that would not be useful in the 'avoiding an extinction level event' sense.
