Re: Science-based what-if questions

Rebuild Manhattan on an iceberg in Antarctica. You figure out how to propel it. Ice appears to have better structural properties than basalt, and likely steel if you can keep it cold. Oh yeah, stay in deep water since the depth of the keel won't allow you close to the coast. The berg created by the ...

Re: The Darker Side of the News

What is the source of the distress when a store clerk is robbed? It's loss of control, fear of injury, fear of death and so on. Whether the criminal makes off with $5 or $900 at the end of it is basically irrelevant to the degree of distress caused. Some people might bounce back and some might suff...

Well, MW was the one trying to claim that 'because someone charges money for sex, taking sex from that person without consent is purely a financial offence'. Not precisely.

The severity of the corruption in the police is to be expected. Look at who they deal with. I doubt that it can be quantified, but it isn't really new.
