  1. There's an army of people who fact check and it doesn't make any difference. When he spelled coffee covfefe...they were like... well, that's how we spell it now.

    Actually, your problem is that I do listen, and I'm not alone in that. Seriously, @Nuclear Wessel offered you some good advice just now. Just drop the "SDA? moi?" pose, and everybody will be happier, including you.

    Why beer mats do not fly in a straight line

    Have they worked consumption of the beer into the equation? Someone paid for this study. *headdesk*

    Why Are We Here?

  6. Democrats picked their witnesses carefully GOP tried to distract Kinzinger seizes moment Racism on Jan. 6 takes center stage Gripping language underscores severity of attack In other words, they picked witnesses that would evoke a maximum emotional response from emotional people (liberals) the GOP held a press conference Dude CRIED OMG he cried Racism. wow. so surprised they went there They rehearsed testimony to get a maximum emotional response from the puppet show audience.
  7. They set up barricades and seceded from the United States. Pretty sure that is a direct challenge to the US Constitution. You cannot reject the legal authority of the US and also honor it at the same time. Of course, no one believed that a bunch of clowns and their autonomous zone would overthrow the US. Just like no one really believed that a bunch of clowns running amok in the Capitol would be their future overlords. It’s just politically useful hyperbole.
  8. I don’t think we do lose neener privileges because of the holier than thou attitude from too many of our platypus pals. Neener!!

    I certainly didn't realize that mysticism was a physics based science.!!
  14. Phony tears from Kinzinger and especially Schiff. What a laugh! And Schiff has the balls to say that he didn't think it right for Americans to call other Americans traitors. That's all he did for 4 years. The Left isn't fooling anyone but themselves.
  15. Uh, macing, pummeling, tasing, For starters. Edit: Oh okay, MOST of the rioters just egged the rest on.
  16. If you don't know much about the situation, why do you appear to instantly assume there is a real problem? As you can see the lockdown situation is exaggerated by these individuals. Small groups that buck mainstream with alternative ideas are common, creationists, flat earther's etc. why do you not consider those similarities here? What makes this group different in method and conclusion? What is the big deal about wearing a mask? It's a small inconvenience that most of the world is embracing because something is better than nothing and want to do their bit. It's not specifically American or specifically government. Do you think surgeons should protest mask wearing?

    Separation of Church and State

    In one version of the American theory, by priciples of (1) limited power of government and (2) divided power of government (among three branches, but also within the non-executive branches themselves, PLUS between federal and state governments, and within state governments, among its branches and in some states, between the state government and its minor civil divisions). Although some of the states allow episodic "direct democracy" (e.g. a few referenda on the annual or biennial election ballot), the federal government does not. This is a conception of "legitimacy" in which what power there is derives from the people, but the people do not have each and every power that any sovreign has ever historically wielded. That these limitations and dispersals of government power were "undemocratic" was recognized and accepted from the outset. In fact, at the very outset, voting was limited to mature adult male taxpayers (which in practice would be property owners or professionals). People have been arguing about whence comes legitimacy for governments as far back as we have records, so I hesitate to invest heavily in defending this one view in this forum. However, you did make a global statement about legitimacy in a democratic context, and I rise to dissent. The American founders crafted something founded in democracy, but with limitations they felt were needed to avoid collective tyranny. One phrase of theirs which I especially admire (these dudes could write) is that these limitations on popular sovreignity were to allow "appeal from the people drunk to the people sober." Other views are possible of course.

  19. It is unethical for a reporter/newscaster to conceal his identity under a false name. This is misleading to his readers and leads one to wonder what other things he is lying about. The reason for the deception might be a newsworthy item in and of itself. Doug
  20. I didn’t post anything that was non-factual. You didn’t fact check it, you dismissed factual information because you didn’t like the source. Very unsurprising.
  21. One has to wonder, when people say 'you don't know what's in it' why they don't apply that to all the things that come of a supermarket shelf. Basically, that statement applies to that too. I also wonder why they don't just go ask a medical professional who does know what is in it. Seems simple enough.
  22. They're far less significant. After attending a Presidential rally, the supporters of a President on his way out, at his encouragement, stormed your seat of government with the intention of trying to reverse or overturn a Presidential election. They killed police and intended to kill and/or take hostage your current politicians. I'm not sure you can overstate just how significant an event Jan 6th was to the US. No one living has seen such an attack on your country. Most people haven't even begun to think about the amount of terrorists this event will have spawned.
  23. I've only ever fought to kill once, and the other guy was inferior to me, so ultimately I wasn't scared. Ran through lots of Army exercises, some live fire, but never considered my life in danger. I trusted those who said I was safe. Being a Christian, I dont really feel I'd fear for my life. I'd fear for those I left behind though.
  24. Your comments are based on a unfounded and ridicules opinion and nothing else. Have you ever been in fight where you out numbered by at least 25 to 1 and surrounded? Maybe you are tough, maybe you have no fear, but I doubt it and unless you have ever been in a situation like that you comments mean nothing. In my opinion I can certainly say under the circumstances I witnessed on the Videos I can honestly say I would have feared for my life. Even with the fact that I have faced life threatening situations many times in my life, all I can say is it's very easy to make comments like you have here from the comfort of your Arm Chair safely sitting in your home!

    Watch: Bigfoot Filmed Crossing River in Michigan?

    Hi Diechecker You are very close in your perspective but as her cosmetic surgeon I can assure you she is a female and to date has gone through countless laser hair removal treatments. That is not a dog she is carrying, it's her boobs flipped over her shoulder as we have to do hair removal before we can give her a perky boob job.

  29. True, it was a mistake on McCarthy's part IMHO. He should have accepted four out of six. Now he's got zero influence for the Republican input.

    Why Are We Here?

    There is a counter argument to this, but actually I think you misunderstood the post ie IMO it was saying that "nothing" (as a state of existence) is impossible Science seems to indicate this may be so, as "nothing" is inherently unstable, and quite quickly devolves/evolves into "something"

    If we live in a simulated universe then what you describe could be a system hack, which is quite an appealing idea.

  37. Gotta cut Uri believers some slack - I was one too, then I turned 10 and realized "wow this guy is so full of BS". He was honestly my realization point that this kind of stuff is nothing but a trick that only catches the gullible.
  38. That ticks a /lot/ of pseudo-history boxes — irrelevant experience, questionable CV, hyperbolic, clearly false contributions to academia, miracle cures, fake technology, technobabble. —Jaylemurph
  39. Thinking about this, it's very closely linked to the Fermi Paradox (as in, where's all the aliens). My solution (the Fox Conjecture) is that there's big red flags on all of their star charts saying "Keep Away/Cloaked - Not Ready/Potentially Dangerous", and an alien technology "beacon" somewhere in the Solar system broadcasting the same warning. The clever bit is the beacon will be broadcasting in a manner we can't yet detect, as our technology is not sufficiently advanced, and at communication speeds faster than the speed of light. The moment we can detect it, potentially some decades in the future, we'll know the full details of how they communicate, start listening in, and will suddenly find they're all around us and have been for a long time. We'll then track down, visit their "beacon" and retrieve the alien technology for study, inadvertently turning it off at the same time, and instantly alerting them all that we have met the criteria for contact. Simple.

    They are imaginary. They can survive or be killed by whatever you imagine affects them. You're getting very silly now. You're fifty years old and still believe in fairy tale monsters?

    I don't have a gun. I'm am Aussie. We have no use for them. So your filling hollow points with silver. That's a bit old school isn't it? Silver is so passe now. I only see silver used in b grade movies these days to fight monsters. Silver is an antiseptic. If your fighting bacteria you might be going a bit over the top with a bullet I think. Tiny little things bacteria.
  42. Do you know the difference between a space based system searching for bio signatures in space and a story some kook tells about being raped by an alien right? Or no going by your response.......
  43. You are wrong about one thing though, vaccinated people can carry the Virus and show no sign of infection. However, with that said even though the vaccinated person doesn't get sick, they can and are able to spread the Virus to those unvaccinated. It's the gift that keeps on giving so at some point those unvaccinated will be cut off from society because any contact can mean infection. This Virus is here to stay, it will mutate to continue and increase it's ability to create infections, that what Viruses do. That's why vaccinated people can carry the Virus without symptoms, and infect the unvaccinated. If you doubt what I have said, do some research at the Lancet, CDC, or the WHO they will verify everything I have said. Peace

    Hunters Kill Bigfoot

    Let's be serious for a moment though. Loggers, hunters, game wardens, those that live near heavily wooded areas, never seem to provide anything valid about an 8 foot tall humanoid. Considering no bones are found, no one to my knowledge had hit a bigfoot driving down the road at night. The whole thing looks and probably is fake. What I typically see are those making claims and seeking their 5 minutes of fame.

    Hunters Kill Bigfoot

    Welcome to UM, Raven667! On the whole, we have a pretty friendly crowd here but we also have some HARD CORE skeptics and they don't care whether a person is unfamiliar with that or not. You learn to ignore the "usual suspects" and just discuss with those who, while maybe skeptical, are willing to be well behaved. Hang around, you'll see which members are which Again - WELCOME to UM!
