Sometimes, a failure actually is a breakthrough.
If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.

Somebody modded me down. Seriously? I'm just providing facts.
IAAP, although not an expert in black holes.
Even though black holes have an event horizon through which nothing is supposed to escape, it has been predicted that black holes can emit Hawking radiation at their event horizons, due to quantum effects.
No, I got it. I just wanted an excuse to provide the link to Ed Byrne's monologue.
It's like rain on a wedding day.
Which is not ironic. Unless you're marrying the weatherman, and he set the date.
I have no idea why gay bashers keep bringing bestiality up.
Oh wait, yes I do. They are projecting their wishes to fuck a goat.
No, they're just making a non sequitur argument that expresses their distaste for gay sex.
I'm tempted to say that gay-bashers can go fuck a goat. But I think that would violate animal-cruelty laws.
I have been modded down. Whatever.
If one side is lying and the other side is telling the truth, then the truth is not somewhere in the middle.
I'll let the reader decide which side is which.
Great post. Moderators take note.
But I'm a bit confused by the last paragraph of the article you quoted. Why would the new WSJ not embrace "death tax" if it was a dog-whistle for its opponents?
Take Fox News and MSNBC coverage of any given story and split the difference and you might get something vaguely resembling the truth.
That is yet another fallacy.
Well for one thing, the population of Denmark is 89.6% Danish. Finland is effectively ethnically homogeneous as well.
Homogeneity breeds better understanding and better community outcomes. Less fear of the other, more ability to emphasize with your neighbor who happened to get in trouble.
In other words, nothing like the United States. Make no mistake, immigration and diversity have good effects, but it has some pretty breathtaking challenges as well.
Other countries have ethnically diverse populations and yet have fewer problems that the USA. Their northern neighbor Canada comes to mind as an example.
I wonder what the limits of this are.
Internet rule 34.
It's obviously affecting the slashdot editors too.
And the moderators. My post was intended as a joke. My link points to this story, not a dupe. Yet I was modded "Insightful."
