This might explain why grown men are more and more behaving like frightened old women these days.
Maybe that's what happened to Stephen King.
Do people that chime in saying "fusion has been 20 years away since the 70s" think they're presenting an original gripe?
No, we've been tired of hearing this gripe since the 60s.
Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, analyzed satellite and direct ocean temperature data from 2005 to 2013 and found the ocean abyss below 1.24 miles (1,995 meters) has not warmed measurably. Study coauthor Josh Willis of JPL said these findings do not throw suspicion on climate change itself."

Well, you are supposing a lot about me. But I will concede maybe I play into the right-vs-left thing too much. And I do think of it as a sport.
However, "my side" sees politicians working together as the problem. I have no issue with government being paralyzed. I don't want them to work on solutions. The less they do the better.
And I said "calm down" because you were rude. It was condescending, so sorry for that.
Confession time - I did indeed do this. The "WhiteHart" sock puppet was a childish experiment to see if a raging liberal (as opposed to a hardcore right-winger) would garner more karma. Of course I am not a raging liberal, so the experiment went nowhere (as you can see from WhiteHart's comment history).
This may or may not violate Slashdot's account policies. I'm not sure, I cannot find anything about multiple accounts in the FAQ. If it becomes an issue and my regular account were to be terminated, I really have no defense to give.
As I said, the WhiteHart "fake" account never really got off the ground, and I'm surprised to have found myself logged in. According to the FAQ, I cannot delete WhiteHart; I will just have to try to forget about him. Please believe me when I say I've learned a few things in the 8 years since I set up the sock-puppet, and it is something I detest today if I see it elsewhere. Mostly I really do stick to posting my comments under my actual name where practical.
"It drives me crazy that I need both a metric and a standard set of socket wrenches and hex keys"
Me too, I want a set that is a mix of metric and SAE. At least the SAE sizes should be in metric first with the SAE size added as an afterthought.
I don't know if I believe you guys or not.
As a tool guy, I'm always wanting more tools, not less.
