Yeah, those Sherpas don't own the mountain, though it's fucking in Nepal and we'd all be dead without them because they're the only people who can really survive on it because they fucking grew up there. » 3/04/15 1:45pm Today 1:45pm

Actually it's been proven that idiot proofing and checklists save error time and again, ESPECIALLY among those who consider themselves highly trained (and not needing a checklist). » 3/03/15 1:19pm Yesterday 1:19pm

I can understand the painter not liking Clinton, but coldcocking him like that is totally unfair. If he, to mix my metaphors, actually sandbagged Clinton in a commissioned portrait, then told the media about it, then of course the painting has to go — and their money should be refunded. And if I were Clinton, I'd sure… » 3/02/15 3:45pm Monday 3:45pm

No crime is more heinous, but I think by definition, a mother has to be so mentally ill that she is not comprehending what she's doing. Again, a horrific, unthinkable tragedy, but clearly the woman's brain is damaged. She's not living in this universe.

I'm sure your co-religionists treat you with the same respect you show to them. Ha, wait — no.

Wow, the top three posters in this thread sure brought the crazy today. Photons are not diverted by gravity waves because they're "half matter" — they're taking the shortest path through that warped spacetime; the red shift IS a Doppler effect. We DO still believe the big bang occurred — "who" are you talking about? » 2/22/15 2:48pm 2/22/15 2:48pm

Whelp, where are all those idiots who said that Charlie Hebdo was asking for it? If anybody's been asking for it these days, it's the cops. As Clint said "deserves got nothin' to do with it." » 2/22/15 2:18pm 2/22/15 2:18pm
