Re: What are you reading?

I love my kindle paperwhite except for one thing I hate about it. It's a touch screen and there are no physical buttons. So you have to hold it by the slim little bezel and if your finger strays the least little bit over the line, it turns the page. And if you wind up on some random page it can be a...

Re: Corona(virus)? ITS NOT EVEN BEER DAMMIT!!!

Warren made a comment about some supposed "good old days," when people had some kind of marketplace of ideas where everyone was heard and considered. But even then, the stuff people are worrying about here was still everywhere. It was just something polite people pretended not to see when it was ex...

Re: Corona(virus)? ITS NOT EVEN BEER DAMMIT!!!

It's abundantly clear that yelling (or clutching your pearls or clicking your tongue) at people showing vaccine hesitancy about how stupid or ignorant they are does not do anything except harden their opinion against getting the vaccines. It's really something that people should be backing off of i...

Looks like the costs of masks and social distancing are going to be bigger than we thought. The way plagues are suppose to work is, they kill off the sick and elderly people, leaving a younger/healthier population that is wealthy because they just got their inheritance, and real estate is cheap beca...

Well if they won't get vaccinated and they don't wear masks or self quarantine, maybe they'll just get sick.

Not a 'lost' invention, but one that fell out of use in Europe: Aqueducts. The Romans built aqueducts everywhere, but they fell out of use in Western Europe after the 5th Century CE.

Re: Surprise! It's Government's Good Side

That was the belief. Evapotranspiration is trees taking groundwater and evaporating it away. But especially in this case, that was probably more than balanced by the mechanism of those same tree roots ponding rainfall and increasing infiltration by sticking up above the ground surface. Plus, there'...
