Re: Just answer the question.
It implies that religious freedom = 'discrimination' 59.15% (1,426 votes)
So what is the alternative. Forcing gay people to go into each store and take abuse trying to find someone in Mississippi who won't cast the first stone? Brilliant.

Re: At Last Something We Can All Agree On
think in academia we all agree that the temperature on Mars is exactly as it is here.
Lol! Not even the stupidest comment on that site.
I think the senator would have been better off using Venus in his example. Thusly:
"We all agree that the temperature of Venus is high enough to melt lead. Yet there are no coal mines or factories on Venus. So how come we get the blame here?"

Re: can we nominate a group?
Experts are obviously biased towards thinking that the things they've discovered are true.
This is, so far as I can see, the actual rationale for the law.
Perhaps the law has some non nefarious purpose, and it is merely the execution of the law that is flawed.
quote:
Board members may not participate in advisory activities that directly or indirectly involve review or evaluation of their own work.
I think the problem here is "indirectly involve review or evaluation of their own work". Commenting on a paper whose contents you have also written about would seem to be a prohibited activity, regardless of whether you agree or disagree. That's pretty much inane. Scientists who have done basic work on a topic might not be able to participate at all.

I would say not. It turns out that BS demonstrations with snowballs are more effective at convincing the base than are a thousand satellite photos of polar ice caps.

Re: A Good Week For Loonies
you're going to increase the concentrations of contaminants which will probably affect taste, so why do it?
I think the reason it gets done is that it is convenient. You fill the tea kettle, sit it on the stove, and then as you need tea/instant coffee during the morning, you simply reheat without a trip to the sink until the teapot is nearly empty.
Of course this wastes time, wastes energy, and makes the water taste bad. But I'm sure it is done just to save a couple of steps.

Re: Only in Florida
If I had an alligator in my car, I'd throw it out and not care what it landed on.
Maybe this will help a bit.
quote:
Once approached by authorities, James admitted to having picked up the alligator along the side of a road, driving to Wendy’s and throwing the beast through the drive-through window.
So you picked up a gator, decided better of it and threw it into Wendy's? Then you're a loon.

As I understand it, the DNA evidence has exonerated every member of the Ramsey family.
There is a new Benet family series on the tube. The reviews of the show indicate that the September 12th show casts doubt on the strength of the DNA evidence in part based on the limited number of markers used, and in part on the extremely poor control of the crime scene in the early part of the investigation. A judge did declare that the family was exonerated, but that declaration is without much merit.
The DNA that does not match the family is "touch" DNA rather than blood or body fluids from some perp. That kind of evidence might implicate someone, but it is dubious as evidence to clear any particular person or persons.

Those things might well leak information, but some of it is not worth worrying about. If you buy networked appliances, you are trading off security versus some level of convenience.

Re: That Nasty Moron
It was, but it's still one of ever so many manifestations of ignorance.
I believe the mistake reflects an attitude about Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands that is a bit more nefarious. Trump may be ignorant, but his ignorance never falls on the side of treating certain folks as real Americans.
All of those folks are U.S. citizens, and they only have one president. Just like every other U.S. citizen.
Yeah, maybe Trump meant governor. But his racist nature would not let him get it right.
