it's also on the long side for something that only breaks something really minor, like Minecraft.
I invite you to spend 5 minutes alone with my 8 year old son at a time when he can't get Minecraft to work. Then tell me if you still think it's minor.
I can read it just fine. It's usally when the Scotts try to talk that I can't understand...
At least we can spell.
Then came the rise of the Christians who promptly destroyed anything that didn't have the word Jesus on it and we were sent backwards by centuries. Not knocking the Christians as it seemed like every religion did the same thing, hell we see the Muslims trying their damnedest to do the same even today.
There are also some Christians who would like to do the same even today...
...like whether or not your weight is proportional to your height.
So it's OK if I put on weight as long as I get proportionally taller at the same time?
Those oil fields are not refilling themselves
Actually they are, they're just doing it really, really slowly.
How fucking arrogant do you have to be to believe that they were just making up something like this instead of perhaps prizing the spotted horses as more aesthetically pleasing to their sensibilities?
I agree with your main point, but I'm not sure arrogant is the right word. Surely it would take a more advanced mind to invent and draw an animal that nobody has ever seen before than just to draw something that you see every day.
I'm not sure why anyone would have assumed the creatures were imaginary, arrogant or not.
>"From 2000 to 2010, the growth rate slowed to 2 percent. Over the next 10 years, demand is expected to decline by about 0.5 percent a year, according to the Electric Power Research Institute, a nonprofit group funded by the utility industry."
That means the rate that GROWTH is increasing will slow down.
No, I'm pretty sure "demand is expected to decline by about 0.5 percent a year" means just that. A decline in demand is negative growth in demand (demand meaning the actual amount of power people draw from the system in a given period of time, not the increase in that amount).
Also from TFA:
Over the next decade, experts expect residential power use to fall, reversing an upward trend that has been almost uninterrupted since Thomas Edison invented the modern light bulb.
Surely when an upward trend in residential power use is reversed, it becomes a downward trend, not just a trend going upwards a little more slowly?
