Comment: Reasonable Request (Score 2) 179 179

"Unsurprisingly, Monsanto, Roundup's manufacturer disagrees saying there is no evidence to support the findings and calls on WHO to hold a meeting to explain their conclusions."

Seems like a reasonable request to me. "Your data is different from ours, explain your results."

OK. Except you left out a bunch and kinda reworded to fit your model.

In the real story, God created light, then 4 days later created the stars and our sun. Oops.
Plants were made on the third day, before there was sunlight to support them.
And yep, animals were created before plants in the bible. Exactly the opposite of what happened. What did all those herbivores eat? Remember, according to creationists all life were herbivores till after the flood. Oops.

The list of mistakes is a mile long.

Comment: The problem is the asshole editors (Score 1) 200 200

I refuse to post on wikipedia. I have had almost every edit I have ever made reversed by an asshole editor. IN AREAS THAT I AM AN EXPERT IN, AND THE EDITOR IS NOT. It's like I am Galileo having my posts on Heliocentrism edited by the flat earth believing church. Unless we can out these arrogant editors and replace them with true experts, it will never be resolved.

I'd venture to say people are just as unlikely to clean and oil their gun and install fresh ammunition. Ammunition has a finite shelf life, and much shorter than you might think if left in humid locations.

If you're using your gun regularly (as you should be) to stay well versed with it. You should have zero problem keeping an eye on the battery.
