Overnight Open Thread (30 Jan 2015)
— CDR M

Ah, just in time for the Super Bowl. Arizona facing major measles outbreak as up to 1,000 may have been possibly exposed. The number of confirmed measles cases in the US this year has already surpassed what they normally see in a year. I'm just gonna go out on a limb and say that there will be other diseases this year that will rise far above normal. Good Samaritan Laws

The sorry state of 'Good Samaritan' laws. I should probably read up on Virginia's good Samaritan laws. I still remember an incident that occurred to me back when I lived in California back in the early 90's. I had just completed a first aid course in college and was out to dinner with friends and family when the waitress came running through the restaurant screaming does anyone knew CPR. Everyone at the table knew I had just completed the course and looked at me. I got up and responded I do, someone call 911 and followed the waitress. Once I got to the victim, I felt this wave of relief fall over me as I realized that CPR wasn't needed as the victim was choking. The victim was an older woman, very obese and starting to turn very smurfy. I struggled to get her out of her dining booth and had a hard time finding the right spot to put my fist for the Heimlich maneuver. First try, no joy. Second try was successful as a big chunk of meat went flying. She collapsed onto the floor. Or maybe I dropped her at this point as she was pretty heavy. I monitored her breathing until the EMT's showed up and then went back to my dinner. I found out later I had broken 2 of her ribs. I never got a thank you but at least I didn't get sued. The restaurant did comp my dinner though.

Polls

Poll shows giant gap between what public, scientists think. Well, if your so-called scientists are Bill Nye or believe in human caused climate change, then yeah, then there are going to be some issues. I was surprised by the nuclear power response though.

What to do about climate change is another issue. Nearly two-thirds of scientists favored building more nuclear power plants, but only 45 percent of the public did. But more of the public favored offshore drilling for oil and fracking than scientists did.

Speaking of nukes, this post on geo-engineering with nukes actually presents a solution to two problems. Militant Islam and Climate Change. I'm willing to believe in human caused climate change if it means that we just might take off and nuke the jihadi's from orbit.

Weather Uncertainties

After some of the busted blizzard forecasts for some areas last weekend, the weather service is being pushed to communicate forecast uncertainty more clearly. That's a novel idea. And since they can't even get a few day forecast right, how about adding this forecast uncertainty to AGW/Climate Change forecasts? None of them have been remotely accurate.

Star Wars Canon

Hope they incorporate some Tim Zahn stuff down the road.

Bacon

Some good news in this era of perpetually bad news. Bacon prices falling.

Quiz Time!

Alright you citizen morons, I'm sure you'll ace this quiz. Or maybe not. It is a tough one. How well do you know Congress?

4 Islamic State is Motivated by Islam; National Socialists were Motivated by Socialism; Huffington Post Motivated by DERP The Islamic State calls itself Islamic. The Islamic State declares that it is motivated by Islam. The Islamic State declares that it wants to impose Islamic law. To any rational person it is clear that the Islamic State is motivated by Islam. One can argue that their views on Islam are incorrect, and in that way are un-Islamic, but it is disingenuous at best to deny that the Islamic State doesn't have anything to do with Islam. To be charitable, it may be due to stupidity. More: http://politicalhat.com/?p=8156

Posted by: wheatie at January 30, 2015 10:21 PM (hX3bN) In one of the HQ Facebook groups the other day, a medical field Moron was recommending, and I believe linked an article, that adults who were vaccinated as kids go get a booster. They're not really sure how long the childhood vaccines last. Could be anywhere from 20-40 years.

28 Sorry for OT so soon, but HAVE to share:
 

The Torah portion for this week has Moses and his posse, er, the Israelites just starting out in the desert after the plagues, etc. At one point, they encounter and do battle with the Amelekites. I'm reading the translation, and all I see is "The people are attacked by the Amelekites, who are defeated by Moses' prayers and an army raised by Joshua."
 

But mostly, an army raised by Joshua.

61 "One can argue that their views on Islam are incorrect, and in that way are un-Islamic, but it is disingenuous at best to deny that the Islamic State doesn't have anything to do with Islam." I like John Schindler's take on this, which is that when politicians and the media repeat endlessly their variations on the theme that "these terror attacks have no religious motive", what that translates into in plain language is "please refrain from drawing the obvious conclusion".

88 "What to do about climate change is another issue. Nearly two-thirds of scientists favored building more nuclear power plants, but only 45 percent of the public did. But more of the public favored offshore drilling for oil and fracking than scientists did." And then you got the other third of scientists wanting to build solar panels and windmills, effectively screwing up your energy generation just like Spain and Germany are doing.

92 "Weather Uncertainties After some of the busted blizzard forecasts for some areas last weekend, the weather service is being pushed to communicate forecast uncertainty more clearly." LOL. The issue isn't the certainty of weather forecasts. Everyone with half a brain knows that they are educated guesses. The issue is the nanny state nitwits in New York who used the fact that there MIGHT be 30 inches of snow as an excuse to interfere in everyone's life. Here's how us dumb ol' rubes in the midwest handle predicted blizzards. It's PREDICTED that there will be 2 feet or more of snow tomorrow, or worse yet, sleet. Teachers and students watch for the snow to start and go to bed with hope for a snow day tomorrow. The local school district's head of transportation gets up at 4 in the morning and drives around, or if it's really bad makes his decision without leaving his driveway. The decision is based on what is happening at 5 A.M. The only way they call off schools 10 P. M. the night before, is if there is already a ton of snow and it is going to keep snowing all night. This almost never happens. Often, even if it is snowing hard the night before, the plows are out all night, and the roads aren't that bad by morning. What happened in NYC was stupidity on the part of the mayor and governor.

Let's be honest here.

NO intelligence agency in the world shares what they know or do with all or any of the others.

It's all selective. It's all done with a goal in mind. They don't trust each other and they certainly don't trust those that are over seen by civilian politicians who's loyalties are always suspect.

So let's not pretend that Israel has been totally open and frank up until lately. And there's nothing wrong with that.

It's a finite ball of dirt we live on. Zero sum game in so many ways. Everyone's playing for the best position they can manage by bluff, bluster or bullying.

The experts acted as if vaccination was some new idea that we had to sell to people, and the public simply needed more information. That's really weird: thirty years ago everybody understood that vaccination was important. Why not now? 2. All of the callers I heard were "skeptical" about vaccination and all of them used the term "corporate medicine" as a synonym for "witchcraft." Those two points made me realize something for the first time. Here it is: the antivaxxer movement is directly the result of three or four decades of Democrat politics and liberal media. How? Simple. What have Democrats and the media done non-stop for a quarter-century now? They have bashed business. They have made "corporations" a synonym for "evil." The villain in all forms of mass entertainment is always an "evil business tycoon" or a "sinister corporation." Activists talk about "corporations" poisoning people and lying. So why is it a surprise that people exposed to this constant indoctrination are suspicious about "chemicals" (=vaccines) manufactured by "villains" (=pharmaceutical companies)? That's exactly what Democrats and the media have been telling them for most of my life. If any kids die of measles or chicken pox or scarlet fever because they didn't get vaccinated, it is the fault of liberals. They have lied and lied and lied and demonized and slandered and lied some more, and now suddenly they're amazed and baffled because people believed their lies!

I think it's a combination of the vaccines-may-cause-autism theory, which is still around even if it has been debunked, the internet, and the fact that we are now 3 generations who don't personally know what happens if you don't get vaccinated.  The collective memory is fading.  Sure, are there Gen-Xers who have parents or grandparents who can tell them about disease outbreaks?  I know I do.  My mother nearly died from polio, and lost her sister to it.  But I am one of the few.

However, we believe that vaccinations are essential to your child's health, as well as the health of others. If you choose not to have your child vaccinated then, for the safety of our other patients, we will have to insist you find another pediatrician."

He ended up with a guy referred by the atkin's office, and this guy misdiagnosed congestive heart failure as a very long lasting flu. So assuming all money is green, shouldn't a Dr. treat stupid patients as well? Or is this an effective way of changing behavior? If so, you only have one shot at it and there will always be a Dr. willing to treat an idiot.

The first year or so after he became governor (which happened because he split the vote with 2 others), the Minneapolis airport was filled with t-shirts about him.  One said, "Mess with me, mess with my governor".  Why do I know this?  I own one.  As time went on, the shirts disappeared.

If the moderator didn't tell the callers who referred to "corporate Medicine" that they're stupid, then he/she wasn't doing her/his job.

249 "The thing about vaccines is the experience the military has had with them. I have known many Desert Storm friends who have yet to recover from them. My spouse was almost killed by the anthrax 'vaccine'." At one point back in the 1990s there were a number of USAF wings that were officially good to go, but unofficially not even close to mission capable, because so many aircrew had abruptly opted to retire rather than receive the mandatory anthrax shot. Of the ones who stayed, some percentage ended up with their careers in aviation (military or civilian) permanently shitcanned due to neurological side effects of the vaccine. Vaccination is a good idea conceptually, but sometimes the practical execution is crummy.

252 That mass anthrax gig the military did, talk about a goat rope.  One guy in AMXS on first shot, arm swelled up and turned blue.  Had to cart him to the hospital.  But he fully recovered.  Stayed in unit for a few more years and then retired after he did his 20.  But he was also carried as non-deployable after that incident.

But one time I got called to the clinic for additional blood tests.  I asked why.  I was informed that several people who went on deployment had contracted Hep C, I was being tested because I received an inoculation from the same batch as those with Hep C.  Luckily my test came back negative.

292 So assuming all money is green, shouldn't a Dr. treat stupid patients as well? Or is this an effective way of changing behavior? If so, you only have one shot at it and there will always be a Dr. willing to treat an idiot. Posted by: Gentlemen, This is democracy manifest at January 30, 2015 11:14 PM (LWu6U) The doctor's concern is that an unvaccinated child can infect infants in the waiting room who haven't had their vaccinations yet. Unvaccinated patients do affect others. There is a school district in Michigan where there were a lot of liberal parents who got on the anti-vaccination bandwagon. There has been a spike in measles cases, as a result.

Meh.   Do they do the same for kids with the latest flu/etc?   Vaccinated kids sick with highly communicable disease?  

What if it's just Gardisil or some other STD vax that they object to?

Men see things literally and as isolated incidents, whereas women keep tallies in their heads, and look at incidents from the standpoint of what KIND of incident it was. And that usually ends up looking like you don't respect/love/notice her, when as far as you're concerned, you just forgot to take out the trash.

It's fucking insane to knowingly have people that can be infected with MMR sit in the same room with children not even old enough to be vaccinated.

So is mandatory vax for everything because Science! 

The lefty tactic is painting of anti-vaxers as un-persons, because the good of society requires herd immunity, because the vaccinated are threatened by the disease they're vaccinated against if someone out there doesn't get vaccinated for it on a particular schedule.   

Sometimes, "because doctors and scientists say it's safe" isn't good enough.   And trying to twist arms to force the point doesn't build trust or goodwill.

442 btw, I am in Japan, and we are going through a nasty flu season this year. My town's schools closed for almost a week and still I think something like 60% of my daughters classmates have caught it. My understanding is that the US generally gets whatever flue hits asia in the spring on the following season, so I would get that flue shot next fall.

Please. Other than the eradication of smallpox in the wild, and the near eradication of polio, measles, mumps, whooping cough, and several other nasty and potentially deadly diseases in the US, what evidence is there to back up your claim?

Yeah, besides tetanus, rubella, diptheria, and pertussis.

My answer  would be, if you ask, and it's something he CAN do, and says he will, but doesn't.  Asking again is not nagging.  If he doesn't like it, he can do what he said he was going to do.

Nagging  is when you ask him to do something that is either beyond his control, or otherwise unrealistic.  Such as, he says he has to work late, and you respond by saying "when are you going to  stand up to your boss and tell him your wife  is  just as important as your stupid job?"

503 #34, sometimes age is not the biggest consideration in a relationship. I mean when I was finding myself single at the end of '12, I figured I was going to get old and die childless since most women in my conventional dating demographic already had their kids years ago with someone else and were done with the idea.

Instead, things got weirder. I'm 41 and the girlfriend/fiancee/gonna be wife #2 is 22. But we're both bitter and antisocial people who like our pets better than we like most folks, she's generally on board with paranoid survivalism, and we're also sci-fi geeks. It works well.

511 488 There is part of the problem. People hear 'vaccine' and their brain says 'good'. Not always the case. It's why I'm sympathetic to anti-vaxers and those who want to make their own decisions on the issue. They're the ones who have to pick up the pieces if anything goes wrong. And considering the general crap nature of Science! (global warming, diet, etc), a "scientific study" saying vaxes are safe doesn't mean all that much. Posted by: CM at January 31, 2015 12:35 AM (+2//H) Okay, I will be blunt, and probably piss a few folks off, but here goes. My husband cannot have vaccines of various types because they are made using chicken eggs, and he is allergic in the extreme. That means that every fool who decides their precious snowflake should not be vaccinated is a potential source of death for my husband. This is not a laughing matter. I will be damned if I feel any sympathy for the families that choose to not vaccinate. They are putting the rest of us in peril, in one way or another. Particularly those who cannot vaccinate, and those who do not get full immunity from the vaccines. It's a shot. Get over it. And for heaven's sake, get it.

I'm  right there with you on this.  I know a guy at work like that.  You ask him to do something (within his job description), and he says he'll get on it.  Now, he  will tell you, if you ask him a second time he will not respond, because he's already planning on doing it, and he doesn't like being asked a second time.

But the thing is, sometimes he forgets!  He won't  admit it, he gets sidetracked because he has too many things going at once, so please, just tell me you have no idea when you're going to get to it, and I'll gently remind you tomorrow, and don't get your panties in  a  wad  over me asking, because  you are NOWHERE NEAR  as consistent and reliable as you seem to think you  are!

My daughter will leave the trashcan in her bathroom unemptied.  This  is NOT  a shared bathroom, but it is the one that is just off the hall, so if we have company...

I can let it sit, and the trash will literally overflow onto the floor.  She's not a child, she is a young adult.  Imagine the sorts of things that go into that  can.

Really, I don't  know  if she  just thinks  I'm somehow slacking off on the job, or if  she  just  doesn't  care.  I know it's wrong, but  I give in more often than not.

Not me. Zahn sucks. He the Robert Asprin of SF.

Heir to the Empire was a boring shit fest. I bought the full-priced hardbound edition the day it came out. Haven't finished it.

The first act is a Tom Brady football of openings, deflated and boring. Thrawn (apologies to the commenter of the same name) was a SF version of the stereotypical Nazi commandant of every WWII movie. Should have equipped him with jodpurs and a lightswaggerstick.

635 Speaking of taking out the trash - the following happened to me: I have a big outdoor city-supplied trash can that I roll to the curb once a week to be emptied be the trashmen. As is standard in cities across America. The service is paid for by a rather large addition to the annual property tax bill -- also standard in many cities. So everything was going along fine for years, and last year there must have been new trashmen on our route, because each week, instead of approximately replacing the empty cans after the garbage truck passed, the trashmen would sort of hurl them willy-nilly at random around the street, often nowhere near the original house. And ever worse, often they were on their sides, half-out in the street, and so on. (I think there were politico-social reasons for this, but that's a different story.) Anyway, after months of abuse, my can finally couldn't take it any more after one week when the trashman just hurled it onto its side at an angle, and the plastic (I call it a "can" but ts made out of plastic) cracked all the way down one edge, rendering the can unusable. Residents are not allowed to supply their own cans -- they need to get new ones from the city, so they comport with the system on the garbage trucks. SO I called up and ordered a replacement. A few days later it was dropped off. I went outside and was stunned to see that my replacement garbage can was this ridiculously tiny little thing, about 1/3 the size of the one I had before. So I called the city to complain and to get a proper sized one. The lady on the phone told me that I was given the proper size one. I said it was ridiculously small. I described it to her. She understood, and said that was the same size of my previous one. I corrected her and said my original can was three times as large. Can you guess her response? I doubt it. It was this: She said that I had been mistaken given an extra-large can before, one that cost three times as much on one's tax bill, and because of this, I had been abusing the system for years and years, so she whipped out her calculator and added up all the back property taxes I owed to pay for the undeserved large garbage can I had been using for over a decade. It added up to thousands upon thousands of dollars. So, I call up to complain about my small garbage can, and the satisfaction I get is a bill for thousands of dollars, and no new garbage at all. Bureaucracy: the banality of evil. (Postscript: I refused to pay the back "taxes." She refused to send me a new garbage can unless I did so. Having reached a stand off, we left it at that, and to this day I have to make do with a dinky garbage can.)

missus jc and I used to have all the same issues people are talking about here tonight before she got sick.   Occasionally I would answer her complaint with: "I would have cleaned that up, but you beat me to it."  She would get pretty frustrated with that.


Then, it came to pass that I did absolutely everything for years cuz she was too sick.  I know she felt bad about that, but she tried to keep me from knowing how much it hurt her.


In the end, there is only one question that actually applies, and it is: "will I regret this later?"  Nothing else even matters.  Don't turn little things into big things.


If there are big things, you have to solve them or you have to move on.  But, little things can and should just stay little things.

Piercello -- I discovered a new way to f-up your mill!



Fact 1 -- the factory drill chuck is of dubious quality. Fact 2 -- the packing grease on that stuff is extreme. Fact 3 -- you're not supposed to tighten the drawbar to more than about 20 lbs. Fact 4 -- we just had a front come through this week that dropped temps about 20 degrees.



So, way to screw up: assume that the R8 spindle is clean enough, the cheap chuck is clean enough, and tighten it firmly....but note that it goes loose again halfway through tightening and tighten it further. Then drop temp 20 degrees overnight and try to get it back out the next morning. Took me an hour and involved a heat gun and pocket sledge.



Cleaned the outside of the chuck mount and the inside of the spindle with acetone -- sure enough, gunky grease. That chuck had gotten in there with the spindle warm, and when it cooled it just set up solid. I'm getting in the habit of leaving the spindle empty overnight.

She couldn't deal with that. I on the other hand was a challenge of galactic magnitude. It was way harder for me to find the right chick to marry because of the music thing. I either attracted chicks that looked like professional sluts ( I mean don't get me wrong), or I got ones that wanted to take me home as a prize, or on a leash and put me in a cage and control my movements because bad metal doggie. There was noooo fucking way I was going to end up with a chick that put her fat bitchy face in the way of my destiny. She was either going to be my shield maiden and cover my flank, or fuck off. I found a shield maiden that knows exactly when to pull my silly ass back to reality at the right moment when I get too over the top, yet helps push me along. I'm a bitchy chick's worst nightmare, because they have nothing to offer me.

725 Holy fuck, what a night. Never, ever go to a college's production of an original musical/dance piece. My in-laws saw an article on a musical/dance show based on WWII era music and dancing and really wanted to go see it since it was the music they listened to while growing up, they are in their 80's. So, off we go on the hour long trip down the interstate to see it. First problem was an accident on the Interstate that has 3 lanes down to one at rush hour, so that delayed us 45 minutes, and we didn't get to eat dinner beforehand, and that made for a grumpy driver. 2nd problem was that the college didn't have any signs telling you what the hell the building's names were. 3rd problem. Holy fuck, they turned what was advertised as an homage to WWII music and dancing into a fucking ANTI-WAR/PATRIARCHY show. First Act started out with the some good singing and dancing, but by Scene 4, it started going down real fast. They had a little part about the invasion of Italy, but all they did was read letters about the sick, the injured, the war torn scenery, no food, and diseases, yeah. Scene 5? It was titled "Pin-Up Girls", alright, some college girls in pin-up girls' costumes, yeah me. But alas, it wasn't to be. Remember the bit about the patriarchy? Yep, here is where it was. Some avant-garde dance piece that seem to make it like the models were slaves. Unfuckingbelievable. Act II? Almost all advant-garde, and was basically the dancers made up and dressed up to look like refugees while writhing around on the floor and rolling around on the floor. If these kids get grades for performing this kind of dance, then my 50 year old overweight ass would be getting a 4.0 in Dance by doing this shit because it looked like the Life Alert woman who had fallen and couldn't get up. It was funny seeing the reaction of the non-college patrons as they were all like "WTF is this" after the show while the Radford Univeristy/VA Tech communities were all going on about how great it was. Funniest part for us was my mother in law who had a brain aneurysm about 18 years ago asking my father in law in a voice loud enough for those around us "what the hell was that?" Why was that funny? One of the professors who was in charge of the production was sitting right in front of her. One positive, we stopped at Fapplebees afterward, and a few of the dancers from the show came in with their parents. They all were wearing tights and had some mighty fine bottoms on them.

727 502 Medved was ... um, different today. He announced that he has cancer and is taking some time off. His voice sounded horrid but ebullient as only a happy rino warrior's can be. Posted by: weft cut-loop at January 31, 2015 12:42 AM (mKIGf) He said he has throat cancer and has started chemo. He said he will be doing other things like writing, but I got the impression that today was his last radio program, although I didn't hear him say it outright. That came as a shock to me. I'm certainly no fan of his RINO politics, but I wish him all the best and I hope he recovers.

He routinely went to Vegas for the weekend with a woman he'd known for 20 years. Which is why I got to go to concert with Jim. There is not a jealous bone in my body. Which is weird, because....Scorpio. His body is filled with jealous bones (Also Scorpio) and I try very hard not to jiggle them in any other way.

Posted by: ColdBeer1 (Slap) (T) at January 31, 2015 02:25 AM (16bOT)



Astrology is pseudo-science because it says that X, Y, and Z produce the situation you observe....but it's a tenacious pseudo-science because there are observable effects on population cohorts with certain birthdates. For instance, in a pre-industrial society, if you were born in the early Springtime, you wouldn't get much cuddling because your parents were out tilling the soil and planting the fields and were exhausted by the time they got around to you. So you'd develop in a certain way, along with others who were born around the same time. Now astrology would say this was because you were born on the cusp of Aries -- which is horseshit -- but most of the rebuttals to astrology would say there is nothing similar about people born at the same time....which misses the mark.



I do believe that Scorpios share a bunch of traits.....but not because they're Scorpios -- rather, because they were born after harvest as the days grew short.

But by far the most interesting use of astrology is this: http://www.eclipse.net/~molnar/ It's important to realize that before about 1600 AD, astronomy and astrology were one and the same. Ancient people had no way of knowing what the planets actually *were*. They studied the sky looking for signs and portents.

There are various effects from events in your upbringing that stabilize around birthdates. If the cutoff date for school admission is December 1, then kids born before and after that date will have dramatically different childhoods.....which can be linked to personality traits they will likely have as adults. Doesn't mean that "Mars is ascendant in Scorpio", but if you label it that way, there will be observable groupings.



Maybe all the kids with birthdays near Tax Day get suckwad birthday presents. Is it because Venus is in the cusp of moving to Taurus? Hardly -- it's because the government is emptying out your parents' wallet.

Sort of akin to observing tides, and concluding that they are caused by fish swallowing and then regurgitating large quantities of water at 12+ hour intervals.

913 I never understood this getting your birthday off thing. I have a brother who does this but I don't get it. To me it is just another day. Posted by: cm9000 at January 31, 2015 03:17 AM (8zCR+) If my birthday falls on Sat-Sun-Mon, then I get the day off. If it falls on the others, I work, but usually I have a short work week or a long weekend for the week of my birthday. In the past I have taken off the week of Labor Day so that I used 4 days instead of 5 or the week before Labor Day so that the vacation lasted an extra day. Self employed now, so it's not a thing for me anymore. The wife however has learned to really stretch out her vacation by taking vacations days on holiday weeks when possible so that she can turn 4 weeks of vacation to 5 weeks.

The U.S. Census Bureau will test the new Middle East-North Africa (MENA) classification for possible inclusion on the 2020 census if it gets enough positive feedback about the proposed change by Sunday, when the public comment period ends.

The largest lecture hall at UCSB when I was there was Campbell Hall -- 900 people. The mother of our godkids was an AV Tech there, and one of the on-campus organizations did a little fundraising by airing the movie "Stop Making Sense" by the Talking Heads (which features a Tom Tom Club break).



Now, Talking Heads had this vaguely yelping guy as a vocalist who was kind of weird, so it started out with the volume turned down. The first song, though was pretty engaging, so she turned it up a bit.



The next song was ok, but the song afterward was pretty good, so she turned it up a bit.



The song after that was nice, but the song after that was rockin' -- so she turned it up a bit. And the song after that was outstanding, so she turned it up more.....



By the end of the night, she'd blown-up the sound system at Campbell Hall. So I've had a soft spot for TH/TTC ever since. Plus, I used to live upstairs and two-apartments over from Lynn Mabry's cousin.

980 When Obama was just starting to challenge Hillary! for the nom, I got into a discussion at my local Subway franchise with the wife of the owner -- where the owner's name was something like "Tom Selassie".




Anyhoo, she was saying how wonderful it was that a black man could possibly be president of the United States....and I agreed, while noting how dangerous it was to entertain a politician from Chicago near the centers of power......and observing that the USSR's "May Day" national holiday was based on the Chicago Haymarket Riots of 1886, and that Chicago has been a cesspit of corruption, communism, graft, and cronyism for well over 120 years. I told her that I'd rather vote for a black man from somewhere civilized than a white man from Chicago, and that I hoped Obama wouldn't poison the well against black politicians for decades to come. She seemed shocked that I didn't respond the way she thought I would.

1014 So they said 87% of these "scientists" believe global warming is mostly caused by man.  So any real scientist says this poll is not of real scientists.

"Science is about facts; science is not about values," Leshner said. "Policies are made on facts and values and we want to make sure that the accurate, non-distorted facts are brought in to any kind of discussion."

But this is a group of scientists with an agenda: "international non-profit organization dedicated to advancing science for the benefit of all people."

So we've seen a little honesty from some that admit global warming is a good way to "spread the wealth around", even if there is no warming.

They polled almost 4000 of their members ... online ... maybe that was half of their little academia/activist group, I don't know.  AAAS dot org   Global warming is the big way for any activist group to get in on the act of globalization, which marginalizes the success of a WASPy centric culture that does ACTUAL good for the world, by providing a blueprint for how nations can be more free.

But the pseudo academics must feel good about their religion of top down control, even if it gives us global "communism".

1032 the actual choice was:

The earth is getting warmer due to human activity
versus
The earth is getting warmer due to natural patterns OR there is no solid evidence the earth is warming

They needed a follow up to ask if the earth has ever been this warm in the last 1000 years, to expose all those that don't know about the hockey schtick, and the Medieval Warm Period, the Viking farm found under frozen sands in Greenland, etc.

Of course these do-gooder scientists want to help the world, not be climate deniers.

1070 Evolution is more important to Scientists than it is to non-Scientists. Isn't that a fascinating observation? Is there any more proof needed to show that Scientists view Science as a religion, and not as... well, Science? Because, frankly: unless the thought of God terrifies you, what difference does it make at this point? We are here, one way or the other. We are also bald, mostly, which flies in the face of Evolution. For all of the adaptations that are supposed to make a species improve and evolve, loss of hair never made any sense. Lions have hair. Mice have hair. Equatorial and Polar mammals have hair. Hair protects you from the sun. Hair protects you from the cold. Hair protects you from the elements. Hair doesn't cause drag until you are talking about speeds far beyond what humans can achieve. Chimps and all of the apes have hair. Lots of it, in fact. So what advantage did Homo Sapiens gain, again, from going mostly bald? And if we HAD hair, what incentive would there be to devising clothes to wear over our fur? Evolution... I personally don't care either way, but I do love seeing how this is such an issue for "scientists." I believe God exists, but not because I'm bald, and not because I can't stand the thought of being related to other animals. If you're a Christian it's hard to view the story of creation in any other way.

Alan Cors has a bunch, the Jacques Littlefield collection was split up to multiple private owners a few years after he died...yeah the Collings Foundation took a lump of it intact but they even let the Sherman E2 Jumbo assault model go from what I saw. Lots of private owners in Canada bought Shermans postwar and stripped them to the hull and tracks for ag usage- one outfit still sells parts and rebuilds.
