  1. For the woke people here, the topic isn't really the issue. It's just an absurd tactic no matter your belief. The fact you could be so tactless and get rewarded. I'll just organize an army of preteens next time I confront my local Congressman. Losers.

    Partisan Hate Is Becoming a National Crisis

    Talk about a crisis..... This mentality is causing a crisis. And yes, I know he's not going to win, but the blueprint becomes so obvious coming from him. This makes people hostile on all sides.

  5. I can't believe I'm going to say this, but Hue could even make a playoff push with this team.

    Earl Thomas Signing with Ratbirds

    Peppers has a massive pair of shoes to fill in N.Y. I wish him the best. No regrets though.
  7. They weren't able to reach a healthcare reform, so they just packed it up. 51.6% income tax and 24% sales tax, but still can't afford social medicine on a small population. Hmmmm? https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2019/03/08/world/europe/finland-government-resigns.amp.html

    Twitter Bias

    After listening to the full podcast, I can empathize with the Twitter execs a bit. But I'm not buying all their bullshit. They're a private company and can do as they wish with their platform, but there is no doubt anymore they have a liberal slant. I get the squeeky wheel gets the grease routine, but if this is the approach then the outcome will be obvious. We all know who whines about everything. I don't leave this clip because of Milo or Alex. Just the content really drives it home for me. Fuck those guys. Also noteworthy, even left leaning Twitter knows the SPLC is full of shit. Too bad it's a gold standard here.

    Twitter Bias

    I agree with a lot of that. The real issue is they are setting up rules that inevitably create a protected class. They can do that if they'd like and I would urge conservatives to stay away from the platform, as they're on the bottom of this list. It's only going to get worse because people have an evolving queue of complaints to replace the one's that get resolved. It's the slow creation of a global echo chamber. As Tim pointed out, someone threatened to kill him and someone else called him a fag. The twit that called him a fag got banned, while the other one didn't. In any context that's bad moderation. There has to be a point that coincidence just can't be the answer. And yes, Twitter is massive. I can imagine it's incredibly difficult to control, but it just begs the question why even try to moderate it then? Since you can't provide equal protection, at least you could provide equal opportunity.

    Perfect summation of republican logic...

    The higher the wage you make, the less you like taxes. The more time you spend in academia, the more liberal you become. Pretty much what one would expect, no? But highly educated, wealthy people are not going to be the base of either party, so this doesn't necessarily disprove what Steve is saying.

    Strange bedfellows???

    https://twitter.com/DrDavidDuke/status/1103710728064847877/photo/1?ref_src=twsrc^tfw|twcamp^tweetembed|twterm^1103710728064847877&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F44367%2Fformer-kkk-grand-wizard-david-duke-omar-most-ryan-saavedra Hopefully, after this, she will see how she has chosen the wrong avenue................or she'll just slide down the same path as known racists. Maybe it's just me, but this new crop of radical women in Congress seem slightly dumber than their female predecessors. I'm not opposed to all liberal talking points (just most), but they have chosen the absolute worst ones to hitch the wagon to. They talk about inclusion and then immediately set fire to the whole idea. It's like there not intelligible enough to understand they are violating their own "principles", like daily.

    A gay superhero?

    https://www.dailywire.com/news/44292/hype-over-feminist-captain-marvel-eclipsed-buzz-james-barrett Anyone want to guess what his super power is? I fail to understand the importance of being gay and a superhero. We don't even know the sexual preference of most superheroes. Since they all wear leggings anyways, one could make a case for them being gay already. I just don't understand how this will be a compelling enough plot to sell tickets.
  13. Is that her mother, who ironically fled new york to avoid high taxes?

    A gay superhero?

    I'm guessing he will shoot rainbow plasma beams that infect you with an aggressive form of HIV.
  15. No sh!t, you still are? Not to be picky here, but it was more than one post. It stretched out over a week for sure. And it wasn't about politics or radicalism, it was about cheeseburgers. It's important to remember the entire context was simply cheeseburgers. I mean, as stupid as this lady is the subjects she inspire have more merit for discussion than cheeseburgers. One would hope anyway. Go on, tell me I'm the silly one.
  16. Aren't you the same guy that went postal over cheeseburgers?
  17. https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/04/politics/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-democratic-party-ideology/index.html I only post this here because it gives a new term I'm starting to hear more and more. "Post-Obama Democrats". Whenever the left makes up these terms, they're about to take a shit on a legacy. Of course, he totally deserves it....
  18. I actually wanted to be in the anti-pollution business fresh out of college, but as you can see I'm not 'that guy'. My first job with TNRCC (Now TCEQ) soured me.
  19. Me personally...I do thin section analysis, electron microscopy, and report writing based off that coupled with other analysis done in house. Xray diffraction, rock mechanics, Xray fluorescent, Mercury infection, geochem, etc. is also part of the write up, but admittedly not my areas. In short, basically determine storage potential of rocks. I also have a degree I don't really use in meteorology. It's my lesbian dance theory degree.
  20. During the Pliocene, global temperatures, particularly at high latitudes, are believed to have been significantly warmer than today. Final Comments Simulating past warm climates and identifying model/data contrasts for periods such as the Pliocene provide a test of the sensitivity of our primary tool for study future climate change: global climate models. At present, our results do not support the suggestion that Pliocene warming was caused by carbon dioxide increase since such changes are not consistent with the SST distributions derived from deep sea cores. There is evidence that changes in ocean circulation and the amount of heat oceans transport may be one potential cause of the warming. Still, investigators have found evidence that minor increases in CO2 (up to 380 ppm) did occur in the Pliocene. This causes us to wonder whether it is possible that an, climate feedback, as of yet unknown, associated with small increases in CO2, could lead to the larger changes seen in the ocean circulation? Certainly the evidence for higher levels of CO2 and stronger thermohaline circulation challenges recent results from coupled ocean-atmosphere models, which suggest that thermohaline circulation weakens as global temperature rises. Perhaps the Pliocene warming is uncharacteristic of next century's expected warming, perhaps the causes are different but the effects will be similar, and perhaps the Pliocene is a warning that unkown factors still exist that could exacerbate or mitigate the CO2 increase and global warming. Successful comparisons, while increasing our confidence in the basic approach, probably occur coincidentally in some cases and such errors would be difficult to identify. Nevertheless, mismatches between data interpretations and model results offer undeniable evidence that either the model, data, or both are innacurrate for a specific region and climate variable. Understanding this allows us to focus resources and efforts on areas that are likely to afford the most gain. Moreover, subsequent iterations, based on new treatments of the data or GCM, test the veracity of previous conclusions. The GISS Pliocene GCM simulation and the PRISM reconstructions are a first step in the interative process of data collection and analysis, model experimentation and analysis, and data/model comparison; the gridded, boundary condition data sets are continuously being refined, updated, and extended into areas with scarce data. Additional modeling and sensitivity experiments involving new data sets and updated GCM versions will soon begin. Close cooperation between modeling and data groups can achieve an overall better understanding of global climate models, data, data collection and simulation strategies, and the climate changes our society and planet could face relatively soon. https://www.giss.nasa.gov/research/features/199704_pliocene/page3.html#comments
  21. I'm still here, I'm waiting on your point? Is that the smoking pea shooter?
  22. No, keep going, this is funny stuff.
  23. Believe it? It's what I do for money. Make this quick, send me a link, and I'll show you where you're wrong. It's simple like that. If your talking about the last 200-1000 years, so what. That's not even a 1/100th of a complete cycle. You can make all kinds of assumptions if you stay in that window.
