Re: No touching! - sexual impropriety thread

There's a whole lot I can't figure out here. Seems like a singer had a relationship with a roadie, she was unhappy about the relationship, so the band took a year off as penance.

Ok.

Mine appropriated the labor of aerobic bacteria so that they wouldn't have to oxidize their own glucose.

Re: When do you think Trumpeachment will happen?

They must have known that he's crazy.

I suspect that many of them did vote for him nonetheless, but all of them? I have to think that a few were unable to make themselves check the box for him. They probably didn't vote for Clinton or a third party, but I think a few secretly left the box blank.

Even if Thanos snapped away everyone who voted for Trump, we'd still have to deal with the House and Senate Republicans.

Re: Rand Paul.....sigh.

I get that you're mostly joking, but to be serious, AFAIK most/all extremophile bacteria find "normal" conditions inhospitable. Anything that could handle liquid methane would probably (1) rely on it as a solvent, (2) hate polar liquids (i.e. water), and (3) rely on processes that can be driven by t...

Do you mean it would escape the lab and do shit on Earth? Not a chance. It would never survive our temperatures. Or do you mean that if let loose on Titan it would destroy that moon by producing O2 that burns all the methane, fills the atmosphere with CO2, and sets off a greenhouse effect? That's wh...

Re: Orange is the new President

I thought that the story offered a pretty profound meditation on what identity really is, and what it means to make a driving imperative of your life integral to your identity. It was fascinating to see how the main character's combat drive became as integral to their identity as sex/gender expressi...

Re: Dancing With the Dems

This notion that our judicial system is about meting our vengeance has troubled me deeply for quite some time. Making bad people suffer is not an inherent good. Indeed, the more profusely and longer we impose misery on our criminals the more we as a society suffer in the long run. Our judicial syst...

Freddie is the best of the socialists. people post those memes about how the don’t care what anyone thinks and then receive “likes” for them, demonstrating that they are very desperately invested in being liked for not caring about being liked. https://fredrikdeboer.com/2020/01/17/you-cant-choose-to...
