In order for it to be truly bimodal, people have to start in either camp A or camp B and end in the same camp they started in. Because if you transition from one to another over time, any point in time will capture a group of people in between the modes.
Bimodal doesn't mean there is *nobody* between camp A and camp B. It means there are *very few* between camp A and camp B.
For example, conventional wisdom from authorities was that the Spitfire was completely impractical because... you had to turn the plane to aim it at the target, as there were no gun turrets.
Buh? At the time of the Spitfire's development, fixed forward firing guns were the *standard* on all fighter aircraft, that design feature having become universal fairly early on in World War One.
Crumple zones, collapsing steering wheels, airbags...they make a really huge difference.

The electric company wants to expand geothermal. There's considerable local opposition.

It's up to the person making the claim to provide the references. If he does not, we are perfectly justified in assuming they are completely bogus.
Aside from water and air, there is nothing as important to human life as food. Why does worker reward not reflect this?
Because you're not willing to pay $20 for a box of strawberries.
What you're overlooking is, although they'd like more, they still regard "keeping the plebs from making easy copies" as a worthwhile goal.
If we're lucky, we might be able to get her vote count into three digits!
