Comment This is a huge lie, the garbage patch is invisible (Score 1) 149

There is no photograph real of this pacific garbage patch, because according to the people claiming it to exist it is made from microscopic plastic particles. The article uses a photograph that is commonly associated with this "garbage patch" which is cannot be proven to exist. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/... "The patch is characterized by exceptionally high relative concentrations of pelagic plastics, chemical sludge and other debris that have been trapped by the currents of the North Pacific Gyre.[2] Despite its enormous size and density (4 particles per cubic meter), the patch is not visible from satellite photography, nor is it necessarily detectable to casual boaters or divers in the area, as it consists primarily of a small increase in suspended, often microscopic particles in the upper water column." Yet whenever there is a new story about this garbage patch they use photos like this: http://wastelessthinking.com/w... from article http://wastelessthinking.com/y... This photo is from a river not the pacific ocean. We are being lied to.

Comment Government knows best apparently (Score 1) 616

My children are vaccinated for almost everything except for chicken pox and one other vaccine. I believe that parents should have that choice and not the government. Regardless of reasons, be it religious or some other reason. But that said all of this is just another political game to polarize the population, those for and those against. The politicians are hoping that this will drive people to the polls.

You are in a maze of UUCP connections, all alike.
