It's obvious even in that little social microcosm of society we call high school. The beta males cliques gather in the library or the computer lab or wherever to do their nerdy things...maybe play Magic, or D&D, or whatever. At best there's what? Maybe there's one or two equally beta females hanging out with that group (if any). And it's certainly not because they're conspiring to exclude girls. In fact, they'd be happy if there were more among them. I know this because I was one of those kids and so were a lot of us here.

Who knows if there's something genetic but there's obviously something cultural. Most women don't strive to immerse themselves in a culture that is predominated by socially awkward beta males. I don't understand why nobody accepts this obvious explanation for the lack of women.

In the amount of time it took you to write that post, you could have googled it yourself. WTF? Knowledge about nearly anything is only seconds away and yet I frequently see posts like this from people too lazy to wade through a few paragraphs on wikipedia. For fucks sake.

While in my opinion, there is enough independent evidence to cautiously suggest that global warming (which itself is not in dispute in scientific circles) is more likely to make bush fires worse than better

Why? Climate Change does not automatically make every area more prone to the kinds of disasters that frequently occur there. Why wouldn't it lessen the chance for severe wild fires? This is the kind of thinking that fuels "deniers". It's always, smaller polar caps, retreating glaciers, intensified tornadoes, wildfires, hurricanes, rising sea levels. Why not more rain in the desert or semi-arid farmland? Or the shifting of severe weather events to another area? More snow for the ski areas. Less rain for flood prone areas. Why is it always worse?

It is clear that the individual who persecutes a man, his brother, because he is not of the same opinion, is a monster. - Voltaire
