Comment: Who cares... (Score 1) 314

I've possibly seen a 200€ or 500€ bank note once or twice in my life. This has no affect on me what so ever and I suspect that people who actually have lots of money don't use those notes either. They are like the 1 and 2 cent coin. They have practically 0 utility in any meaningful transactions and just make everyone's lives harder.

The fact that you say "tainted by Men's Rights Organizations" shows that all you know about Men's Rights movement is the propaganda spewed out by feminist publications... or you think that actually pointing out facts and trying to work towards an actual equal society is "being tainted by".

Trying to end unneeded subsidies is seen as stifling from the solar energy people. I call it fair competition and I'm not even libertarian. Solar and wind are subsidized heavily all over the world which is very much behind their current rise. I would like to see a fair competition of the energy market or barring that at least move towards actually useful short term solutions i.e. nuclear reactors.

I would recommend listening to Astronomy 161 (Solar system), 162 (General astronomy, like life cycles of stars etc.) and 141 (Life in the universe). These are three amazing and engaging Ohio University Astronomy courses uploaded for free by Richard Pogge. His lecture style is really great and I've yet to loose interest despite of listening through all of them multiple times (each one is about 45 lectures of 40 minutes each). I'd recommend these to anyone interested even a bit in astronomy. They're entry level courses so you don't need to know anything at all about astronomy (or geology, biology etc. in the case of 141) before going through them, although in that case I'd definitely listen to 161 first, then 162 or 141.

Wait... you think that all of the countless nameless mook males that die in FPS games have more personality than the woman victims that often deserve a cutscene or two before dying... you seem to have a strange definition of character, personality and role in the story.

is to stop spoiling the myth results during opening scenes. Drop the highly annoying US style editing where watchers apparently have the attention span measured in seconds and you have to repeat half of the program after every commercial break (which there are an astounding number in US apparently) and go through the program one myth at a time instead of bouncing from topic to topic (again I suspect because of the apparent attention span of general US public).
