People still drink and drive, smoke, do drugs, and have unsafe sex despite years and sometimes decades of having admonitions against all of those things embedded in our culture. Why? Because people still "think those types of things happen to other, less careful people." It is human nature, hubris, and magical thinking all rolled into one.

Why should an employer invest in an employee who will jump at any better paying job that comes along?

It is a catch-22 really, and very much the employers fault. Employers turned employees into resources and treat them accordingly. Need to cut costs, get rid of some of those cost generating resources. But, by instituting layoffs, outsourcing, and off-shoring in this manner, executives have destroyed the concept of corporate loyalty. Executives thought they could defect and betray the employees and the employees would still be loyal. The executives should have studied game theory, or just used common sense.

Hmm so the fact that some people are unfaithful, lying scumbags, a group which seems to include you, makes this feature designed by divorce attorneys? Interesting. I would say it is more likely that Facebook is hoping to become the hub of people's social lives. If one isn't an unfaithful, lying scumbag, then one shouldn't have any problem.

we cannot ascertain the temperatures of past centuries with enough precision to make any such study nor claims

That's not a fabrication. That's just wrong. Calling it a fabrication bestows too much grace on it.

Please provide the evidence that his statement is "just wrong", specifically provide credible evidence as to the accuracy and precision of the methods used to determine the temperatures of the past centuries.

The only thing cheaper than hardware is talk.
