He didn't go to Marsm he came from Mars but got a forged birth certificate so it would look like he was born in the United States

I should put more thought into these posts though. Mindless hate speech is too easy.

Yes.

I think 3 things can be noted in Ferguson.

1. Social justice has gone off the deep end, Wilson did nothing wrong. (2 pt penalty for ambiguous language and assuming facts before you have them, even if the ref's probabilities are leaning in the direction of no indictment.)

2. I don't want the cops having bigger guns than me. Which is why I bought a Howitzer

3. Cold is the natural enemy to riots. They waited till winter to release the verdict. We have some smart people in our government.

 :lol: 8/10

Wilson is the great Hitler of our time.
Killing someone who deserves it and being ridiculed by Marxists.

Wilson did nothing wrong.
He din du nuthin.

I'm just hoping that this is very, very dry sarcastic humor.

If it is, forgive us for taking it literally. You should see some of the moronic wanna-be edgesters we get here.

High Weirdness / Re: unmeasurable particle created???

Well, the last years, science news are becoming more and more science fiction but THIS.........!

What is a Majorana fermion?
It is named for the physicist Ettore Majorana, who found that a particle could be its own antiparticle. If a particle has properties with values unequal to zero, then its antiparticle has the opposite values. What that means is that all the properties of a Majorana fermion, the charge, energy, what have you, it's all zero. It is a particle, but it doesn't have properties that we can measure. :eek: :eek: That makes it very mysterious. It also makes it difficult to find.

sometimes it seems that soon there might be nobody left who can understand science anymore...

I think a lot of the incomprehensibility of this comes down to that particular article being rather poorly written. In the quoted passage for example, either there are one or more sentences missing between the second and third sentences, or else the author does not understand how antimatter works.

Incorporation of new age woo-woo shit into far-right propaganda, and vice versa, certainly wasn't something that was new as of the 1990's. It goes back at least as farmas Nazi Germany

Aneristic Illusions / Re: Boyd Bushman | Deathbed Disclosure
« Last post by Prelate Diogenes Shandor on Yesterday at 02:14:21 am »
I actually listened to the whole thing at work. And here's my thought:

Why would we need to employ 18 extraterrestrials to reverse engineer their own technology?

I don't think claims of extraterrestrial contact legit (particularly this one; according to Snopes and Doubtful News and a number of other sources the "alien" in Bushman's photos is a mass-produced Halloween decoration [the writer from Snopes added that he was even  able to find one at his local Walmart]) but nonetheless This isn't necessarily a valid point. Do you know how most of the technology that you personally use works, in anything more than a very broad and general sense? And even if you did do you think you could repair or replicate it without the proper tools? Even if they did have complete knowledge of the technologies in question they'd still have to find a way build the tools necessary to build them, and to build the tools to build the tools; even, by analogy, if you know how to make microchips you may not know how to make a machine that etches silicon. Imagine trying to repair or duplicate an mp3 player using tools from Leonardo da Vinci's workshop.

Let me get this straight.

You would expect the Enterprise to not have a Scotty and a back-up Scotty?

More of a City on the Edge of Forever, Spock trying to repair a tricorder with vacuum tubes type thing; but more so, I think he had an unrealistically easy time with that.
