Re: NASA plans to rassle an asteroid

Most likely the sole reason it's in there is because of that Russian meteorite causing a big fuss. I always loved how the Bond villains always asked below the actual cost of setting up the extortion scenario, gave it a cartoony vibe.

Re: Soylent (not the people variety)

Your list looks to be exactly the same as his, that might be a bad idea to not account for body size/height/gender with dangers of over/under-dosing. I can't seem to see where he put the data for his own height/size for appropriate portion ratio conversions. Why does seemingly everyone that hears/re...

Re: Best proofs against evolution

Incredibly off-topic, and I in no part want to get back on rails :D. A major part of religion is often the morale system that says what people can and can't do, so in that aspect it lies functionally very close to govern -ments in that respect. Also monarchy's are supported primarily on the premise ...

Re: John Cheese: Politicians don't understand poverty

*snip* So people not displayed in the info-graphic have no influence on the market worth considering for a paper. I wasn't suggesting (at least I hope not) saying they need to put information on birdwatching (unless somehow binoculars becomes a large market). Having a article based on the effects o...

Re: Do you think what my school teacher said was too much?

I sincerely hope you got hi-fives in that detention. I am currently unable to watch the vod but it is understandable on the Principal's ruling about the slap on the wrist detention. I can't imagine how terrible it would be to teach thinking one of the students is recording everything to get payback ...

Re: John Cheese: Politicians don't understand poverty

Isn't the purpose of reading a newspaper is to become more aware of your surroundings and the world around you? I mean if it turned into a media where people want to isolate themselves to not question anything then it's no wonder they're going out of business! They're competing with internet forums ...

Re: Star Wars: Episode 7

I was really happy when I heard about having new Star Wars movies to watch. Then I got kinda sad when I realized I was only happy because I was more excited for more http://www.darthsanddroids.net/ comic strips and more http://redlettermedia.com/ movie reviews that will eventually stem from it.

Re: Immortality

I believe Du Bois even said the wonderful quip of "liberty delayed is liberty denied." I don't know even with the rest of infinity to live with those rights for some reason it just doesn't sit well with me. Oh I think we all have our own anecdotal evidence of people changing their ways but...

Re: Immortality

Well if we assumed of a society that suddenly became immortal and stop having children then the current morals of the majority would reign. If the population continued to grow at some rate the morals of the society as a whole would indeed change, the only question is how soon. At this point in the t...

Re: Immortality

Regardless of trolling or not I think he does have a point on the immortality stagnating Morales. Like currently speaking for gay's rights in America they honestly only have to wait until all the baby boomer generation homophobes die off. Since the older people have a majority of anti-gay rights whi...

Re: 1139: "Rubber and Glue"

tl;dr: If you're a (science) nerd, you should love that book. If you're not, you'll think anyone reading it for fun is an extreme nerd (and you'd be right, but teasing them about it isn't wise, you'll probably end up working for them. Or they'll craft horrifying mental images of glue bonding rubber...

Re: X-Com: UFO Defense / UFO: Enemy Unknown

So... so far, only 1 player has beaten XCOM on impossible Ironman. Wonder how many attempts it took. No bloody wonder I haven't been able to get to even the first terror mission without wiping. In fact this morning I had three rookies in full cover each of them get one-shotted one after the other i...
