Re: Kid O.D.'s live on webcam while 4chan users egg him on.

I mean, ODing on pills? Has something like a 1 or 2% success* rate. I think some people who attempt suicide through this method have to know that, or at least know that they're not likely to be successful. Couldn't such an attempt then reasonably be construed as a cry for help? A friend of mine did...

Re: Global Warming or Global Cooling?

Where are you getting this one in two chance from? And have you actually been reading my posts? Our ability to predict climate change is not dependent on our ability to precisely predict the temperature of a given year. There are two predictions that can be made about the climate from your very gen...

Re: Global Warming or Global Cooling?

Of course there are variations when it comes to year-to-year predictions. This does not mean that we cannot predict future long-term climates with our current models. And you will notice that all three lines, including our direct observations, are on their way up. There's a one in two chance that t...

Re: Global Warming or Global Cooling?

It might not be valid logic, but it's true that we aren't really at a point where we can accurately predict climate change. If you look at this chart, you see that there's major deviation within both of the tested climate models. I wouldn't trust these things as far as I could throw them honestly.

Re: Useful or interesting units for measuring speed

Well the typical unit of distance where I'm from is minutes or hours. For instance, "how far away is $town?" "Oh, about 10 minutes."
I guess that would make the speed derivative of that minutes2. I'm just spitballing, though.
