Well, we don't know that Mr. Fusion was available in 2015. Doc Brown might have traveled further into the future, after all.
and probably didn't even care if someone else could die if they stole it
They had no idea what they were stealing. Otherwise, they wouldn't have opened the cargo and given themselves a lethal dose of radiation poisoning.
And if they'd gotten involved in a high speed pursuit they could have killed someone just running away.
Guilty of crimes not even committed. Gotcha.
Not to mention their willingness to threaten deadly force in the act
They beat up the drivers, not shot them.
They jacked a rig, had no concern for the value of human life, and it bit them in the ass. To be blunt, they had it coming.
To be blunt, you're a bloodthirsty authoritarian thinking with his lizard brain. No, people who commit assault and grand theft cargo do not deserve to die. You wouldn't be from Texas by any chance, would you?
Precision targeting has reduced casualties to tiny levels, though the general public don't have a clue about that.
Which is why we kill 50 civilians for every alleged terrorist. Why it takes multiple attempts to kill the target, with varying number of civilians taking his place.
Precision bullshit, more like it.
but I have yet to hear a good justification for his leaks about NSA's foreign operations
Do you have a justification for trying to spy on every person on the planet? Do you have a justification for a system that's more about corporate espionage than stopping terrorism? Do you have a justification for tut-tutting Snowden's revelations when the USG flippantly stated that it was listening in on Al Queda conference calls - about the most valuable counter-intelligence secret you could name?
but they aren't doing anything that every other country isn't trying to do to the United States
But this is a bullshit talking point, always has been always will be. It ignores the depth and pervasiveness of the NSA programs, the disparity in capability, and the geographical isolation of the U.S. from the rest of the world. You wouldn't say that Angola has a military, so it's equal in capability to the U.S. military, would you? Then why are you guys doing this with the NSA programs?
2013 was the quietest tornado season on record. Don't make shit up to try to win an argument.
Making up shit - like pretending that weather has to be getting worse everywhere all the time before we can say climate change is happening? That's a tired denailist canard, and the only one going on about 2013 is you.
You want to talk about recorded tornadoes though, the list is dominated by a single set of twisters in 1917, and the rest come in the last few years. Greatest pressure drops, widest path, longest thunderstorm cells, most tornadoes in a day. As for most tornadoes in a year, that was in 2004.
They have. IPCC reports have consistently under-projected the rate of change.
Please send me your hurricane measurements from 33,241 BC. TIA.
Touche. I should have said "most powerful ever recorded".
Really? This is controversial? There are foundational assumptions in mathematics yet no one seems bothered by that. Point out the obvious when it comes to science and the uneducated science cheerleaders come out of the woodwork to "defend science" against
... what exactly?
Doubling down on the tautology isn't naming an example.
While those aren't benchmarks
So your post is a non sequitur. Jobs was also a dick for screwing Woz out of royalties way back in the day - but that doesn't have anything to do with benchmarks.
That's what I'm talking about: the author is a right wing troll, and anyone who touts his book is a troll as well, or a fuckwit dumber than pond scum. You might as well cite a work by Baghdad Bob, the level of credibility is the same.
That's still not quite right. "Global warming" means you're increasing the total energy of the system. As a consequence, all the extremes become more so. For example, warmer-than-usual temperatures in the southwest might push the jetstream northward, causing it to catch arctic air and then meander back southward, causing a record-cold blizzard in the northeast (or something like that).
No, it's still right, because "global warming" means an overall warming of the planet. As for blizzards, that's where the warm air comes in again, because it can carry more moisture than cold air. One of the common denialist canards is that climate change is a myth because some parts of the poles have increasing ice - but leave out the part where that's due to increased precipitation from warmer air.
Bullshit. Every time reality doesn't match their predictions, instead of admitting their hypothesis has been falsified, they change their models and expect a "do over."
If anything, climate models have been too conservative in predicting warming patterns. Reality has a well-known anti-wingnut bias.
In other words, capitalism fails because it is exactly like every other system
Capitalism is unlike every other system because only capitalism defines monumental failures as success. 50 million people living in grinding generational poverty? They're just being paid "fair market wages". Bankers crash the world economy by betting more money than exists across the entire planet? Resources are just being "allocated more effectively."
If Lenin had figured this out, the fall of the Soviet Union would be one of communism's greatest success stories.
Nonsense! Science requires a plethora of foundational assumptions.
Name one. Then illustrate that what you call an "assumption" wasn't derived through testing. You know, 2 + 2 = 4, pythagorean theorem, asexual reproduction...something.
There are STILL people who think a single season, storm, or record defines climate?
There are STILL people pushing this butthurt deflection? Warmer more humid air makes for more powerful storms, and warmer, drier air makes for record drought conditions. So yeah, denialists, record tornado seasons, massive forest fires months before fire season, record heat waves of months of 100+ degree heat and the most powerful hurricanes/typhoons in a century/of all time are evidence of global warming.
