    Don’t bother, I’ll never keep “its” straight. Or then/than.

    I wasn’t dismissing the story based on the source. In fact, that story is accurate. What I was pointing out is that the source does not seem to have the same concerns for plants and animals if they are damaged by coal or nuclear power generation.

    Amazing that it went on for so many years.

    I think it’s more amazing that it was finally discovered. If the NCAA respected it’s bylaws, they’d promptly investigate every sports program for the same thing.

    At the minor university (state supported) I went to, the intro classes in physics were referred to as Engineering Physics (everything calculus), business Physics (everything algebra), and Football Physics (almost no math at all). Story: i was in my physics prof’s office getting a tutoring about a concept i just couldn’t grasp when the phone [...]

    This after 5 prior investigations cleared the university and placed the blame on one professor. And after the University attacked a whistleblower who was saying exactly what the report says.

    It’s time for college sports to go away.

    It has been a long time since he’s blathered something outrageous enough to get air time outside his own network. He could probably claim 20K members or so, though the large majority would be TV-Only.

    I think he may fail on the Ins defense

    Sometimes, people forget that for THAT Judgement they don’t get lawyers or the 5th amendment.

    I think he’s preparing an Insanity defense for when he’s called to Judgement.

    How does he know it’s not Gods punishment for executing innocents or for discriminating against a subset of God’s children? The only transmissions in the US have been in Texas.

    Dunno. Seems like it would work every time.

    Well, as stable as anything in that area. Arab Spring resulted in a change in management, but the new management seems intent on building a country and ObamaLLP seems inclined to let them.

    I was looking for a good solar story to go along with the topic. I looked for the largest solar plant in the nation and found National Review’s story trashing it as a consequence. You don’t need to wash your hands after reading the National Review. But it might be wise to use brain bleach [...]

    There’s over 10K sq mi of desert in federal hands already, no need to buy more. And a lot of the land is located near where the three national grids connect, perfect for a inverter plant and a sync transformer.

    It’s very do-able.

    Yeah, Faux has problem. trash Obama for the latest security breach or fear monger the Jihad connection to Canada’s shooting.

    Looks like they’ve decided to fear monger for now. Bet that was a contentious editorial meeting.

    Ya ever notice how things like the National review become environmentalists when discussing solar power?

    Here we see their latest takedown of Solar power.

    I notice no such concerns when building, say, a reactor or a coal plant. Or about mining coal, oil or Uranium.

    You have my sympathy. Here in Ohio, the Dems have offered up a clown with a scandal sheet as long as my arm. They’re spending almost no money on him and he’s expected to lose in a landslide. Kasich is actually the better man for the job, that’s how bad this fellow is. Even so, [...]

    Good Morning All! Solar from North Africa to Europe is a good idea, long overdue. It would take about 400 sq mi of desert to fully power Europe. That sounds like a lot, but it’s really only a square 20 miles on a side. We’ve got bigger military bases. Tunisia alone has about 60K sq [...]

    Don’t tell us, tell Faux! They’re already making sure that every story they post has a reference to the “radacilized” driver from earlier this week. One gunman. Three gunmen. It’s stopped. It hasn’t. Other shooters at other locations. But maybe not. Think I’ll wait a couple hours for this to sort out. Boxturtle (I think [...]
