Re: Foul-mouthed Brit buys the wrong air conditioner
He makes a good point - getting aircon here is very hard work. When you end up with a unit that can't actually cool a room without freezing up, clogging up with dust and dripping water over a capacitor...you gotta get a bit peed off.

Re: Keith Olberman on the Miss Teen USA pageant
What we need is evidence:
quote:
Nearly all (94%) young Americans can find the United States on the world map, and Canada
(92%) and Mexico (88%) are nearly as familiar. Wide majorities can find bordering bodies of
water including the Pacific Ocean (79%) and the Gulf of Mexico (75%). Trends from 2002
suggest that more young adults can pick out Canada and Mexico (with few signs of change for
other countries). However, it is concerning that one in ten of those with up to a high school
education cannot identify the U.S., and one in five cannot find the Pacific Ocean.
Places Beyond North America are Less Often Identified
Moving further abroad, three-quarters of young Americans can spot the distinctive landmass of
Australia (74%), and over half (56%) identify Brazil, the largest country by far in South America.
However, majorities cannot find the U.S.’s closest ally, the United Kingdom (36% correct, 65%
incorrect), nor can they find Egypt (30% vs. 70%) or Indonesia (25% vs. 75%).
Granted - this is just 18-24 year olds - but that should be reason to celebrate in itself.

EvC will completely degenerate (write that down!)
Prof John A. Davison writes:
I predict that within one year of this date, Pharyngula, Panda’s Thumb, EvC, RichardDawkins.net and Uncommon Descent will all have so completely degenerated as to become nothing but embarrassing footnotes in the history of internet communication.
The end of civilization is nigh, and the fall of EvC is one of its portents!
