  1. Past hour
  2. Well you've made it, and insulted plenty of people who use the internet while doing so.
  3. I think backing up what you are saying with a source is imperative, in most cases, but doesn't the source natter as well? If a person posting on a thread, who considers just about any source credible based solely on their deep insight into the character of the offeror, would you consider his sources credible when said source is demonstrably fraudulent?
  4. So you think that all the casualties were human shields? First, that's simply untrue and so obviously ridiculous. Second, in Gaza, going home for your dinner would be counted as using "human shields". There are no military installations or places for them to hide. For your reading: Since you seem to be under the impression that human shields is a Palestinian phenomenon. It was literally IDF policy and they still do so, as Operation Cast Lead made abundantly clear.
  5. The Rake, in Borough Market, London, charges £13.40 for a pint of Cloudwater, brewed in Manchester. https://news.sky.com/story/london-pub-the-rake-defends-charging-1340-for-pint-of-beer-11006063 My local (Birmingham) pub charges £8.70 for a pint of Trials & Tripelations, brewed down the road in Coventry!
  6. There's a method to my madness and a point I'm making.
  7. Why you...SEAHAWKES FAN!...Yeah i said it what? Actually i'm a Libertarian...somewhat conservative and somewhat liberal (if going by the original meaning,and not the revised "make a cause outta anything meaning")
  8. You're right. Thanks. I've gotten in trouble here before by speaking my mind on politics. Gots some rather strong opinions towards opposition. So you're right, I'll refrain.
  9. Listen very closely bud, you are being taken to school!
  10. Ideally the free market would allow for a new ISP that ran on a platform of "no throttling". However, because the big 3 (Bell, Telus, Rogers,) have a monopoly on the market, that needed competition isn't able to surface. Hence the need for the Gov't to step in and regulate.
  11. If you don't care about this subject and clearly have nothing productive to offer to the discussion, then why do you keep posting? At this point all you're doing is flame-baiting.
  12. The question lies in whether or not there's any sort of inherent consciousness in nature or not. Then it's less anthropomorphism and more a descriptor.
  13. Let's not make this about politics because, apart from the GOP, this transcends political lines. Citizens in general agree with Net Neutrality. Also, I don't think that @CrimsonKing is a Trump supporter. A dirty conservative by the looks of things, yeah, but not a Trump supporter (Couldn't resist).
  14. No i keep saying LIFE WILL GO ON,ON PLANET EARTH WITH OR WITHOUT NN...GET IT? How is NN working out for the homeless?...how about those dieing of disease in 3rd world countries? Nope i have empathy and compassion i just don't see how you folks are lumping "NN" and not having a service you want into REAL human suffering!...when one really thinks about this complaining is some real 1st world problems!
  15. Agree with what? That extremist thugs are using civilians as a shield? No doubt about that. With all $millions (if not $billions) being poured to palestinians every year, they could have built Singapore II (in Gaza) and Singapore III (in West Bank). But they chose to waste money on armaments and tunnel digging... You make bed? You sleep on it.
  16. Oh I see the problem now. Big bad man took someone's favorite toy away.
  17. If "god" is simply an anthropomorphism of "nature" then that is indeed the case That we know of ......
  18. And people wonder why Millennials like myself overwhelmingly support socialism.
  19. This place is truly fascinating! "Hey you disagree with me huh?....well,well,well TRUMP SUPPORTER!!!"
  20. 'that didn't work?' Work to do what exactly? This isn't a game. The only goal I'm working toward is in reasoning with you. I'm only trying to reason with you, but the problem doesn't seem to be in your ability to understand. You keep acknowledging the situation but insist you don't care. You don't care how it affects others, and only care about policies that affect you. That's essentially what you keep saying. If that's the case then there is no reasoning with you since the problem lies in your ability to empathize with others, rather than to understand their hardships.
  21. Right now the 2W station is not recording temperatures because its equipment is down. That leaves a gap in the data. Today's temperatures for that station will not be recorded. They will be represented as a blank or a dot. NCDC is about six months behind in getting its data posted. When they finally get around to posting today's weather records, it will show the 2W station's temperature data as a gap. Somebody wanting to use the 2W record can either estimate the missing data or leave the gap there. There are no other choices. We don't have the luxury of relatively small datasets compiled in a few days, as do physicists. We are still relying on datasets recorded centuries ago and right up through this morning. Galileo's first sunspot observation was taken on December 8, 1610, if memory serves. We still use it. We probably have well over a billion observations and with automated stations, that number is growing rapidly. Some of those automatic stations record conditions every twenty seconds. Our weather radars record them every five minutes - actually that's two records every five minutes, one for high beam and one for low beam. I don't even know how many of those are operating. Estimates cannot go back farther than there is data on which to base them, so the very first estimates and the very first observations date from the same day. Estimates have to meet accuracy standards, so most can't get back as far as records go. Between then and now, the number of stations has increased, so more hard data is available. In Oklahoma we have gone from one station in 1824 to 205 stations today. The increase is exponential with lots of jumps and starts, but we still have data gaps. In 2017 there is a smaller proportion of gaps than there was in 1895, but there are still gaps. Most of the people telling you what is going to happen in 50 or a hundred years are simply projecting current trends ahead in a striaght line - "if we continue as we are..." We all know we're not going to continue as we are. We have already passed peak oil. I'm not sure about coal, but I suspect that is the same story. Those fuels are running out. Emissions from them are going to go down whether we do anything about it or not. But new natural gas sources are coming on line daily (My own daughter is a mudlogger/geostearer for a company that services gas wells.). Even so, there are perhaps 20 years of gas reserves in the US. We'd better have something else ready by then. So as a physicist, what do you do when a piece of equipment didn't work and you can't go back and repeat your experiment? There is nothing else to do but estimate the missing data or throw out the whole experiment. A physicist can always start over, but that can't be done with weather/climate/astronomy, etc. You have a strange science yourself. Doug
  22. I wonder if Slobodan Milošević ever thought to use that argument as a defence? That's not true. Both the PLO and more recently Hamas have accepted those borders. I've shown this at least twice in this thread in reply to you.
  23. As is evident in my only other post in this thread. Canada did not have net neutrality until people raised enough of a stink that it forced the Government to act. Greedy ISPs (Internet Service Providers) throttled and controlled internet speeds as they saw fit because there was no oversight preventing them from doing so. The general rule of thumb with big corps is "if they can get away with it, they will try it."
