In Eastern Europe, a handful of partisans still fight SkyNet and an army of robots. It's a desperate fight and the landscape is filled with the wreckage of a former age. One group is led by Ahnuld. He's crafty and careful having lived through the worst of times. His crew look up to him as a father and would follow him into hell.
Called before the supreme council, it's Eastern Europe remember, one member of his crew is denounced. It's all a ruse to get him and his group to sign up for a high-risk, end the war in Europe mission. He agrees but not before telling everyone of them 'I'll be back'.
Getting there is the hardest part. Sneaking through wrecked cities and desolate wastelands, half empty aquifers and collapsed rail tunnels, fighting and dying heroically to preserve the mission and each other, the rag tag group makes its way to... CERN. The idyllic countryside has been devastated. In its place are ruined behemoths and the rusted hulks of war machines. But SkyNet lives here, at least the part aware of the European theatre and they are there to destroy it.
Is where it really gets good. Also, there's a twist ending. Really, this movie could win awards. That's how good the ending is. Even your Mom is going to like it. I'd tell you, but it would ruin it for you. I'm doing you a favor.
The climate has rarely been in stasis, fool
It worked out ok in the end.
The problem with the Climate Change movement is that people like James Hansen, Al Gore and Michael Mann are the most vocal proponents. None of them has ever expressed any caution and seem to always err on the side of their own arguments.
Hansen predicted huge sea level rises which failed to materialize. Mann spliced together a hockey stick which is also not matching reality. Can we at least acknowledge that both of these guys were wrong in these instances? Who exactly is the zealot here? Al Gore is just a profiteer with an extremely large carbon footprint.
The biggest argument in favor of Global Warming was the loss of sea ice. But even there nothing is unprecedented and it remains to be seen if the loss is permanent or just naturally cyclical. The only thing I am sure of is that the science is not settled.
There is a bold stance 'it is accepted in the scientific community that climate change is occurring'. So glad you could clear that up for all us Neanderthals.
That explains the 97% consensus. The remaining 3% must not get out much.
Nice quote and so apropos to the climate 'debate'. I do think that the scientific process will win out in the end (how can it lose?). I just don't think that the current bunch of 'climate' scientists are backing the right horse, that being C02 as the primary driver of global temperatures.
97% consensus, har har.
You don't need Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, FB if you have the Verizon Backbone that is carrying most of their traffic. It might not even be Verizon, but you get my point.
How do we get around this issue? There is a huge MitM operating here and that is scary.
If we stay on this rare planet, we are certainly doomed. It's the nicest place we know of but if we don't get off this rock, we'll probably get killed off by collision with a smaller rock. Or a super volcano... Or Mannian hot air... Or the next ice age... Or our own greed and stupidity.
My money is on the Bransons and Rutans of this world figuring out how to get us into space and someday stay for good. Once someone figures out how to survive in space, there will be thousands hot on their heels. We don't need another Earth. If we can survive long enough to get there, the only reason we'll stay is for variety, not neccessity.
There are more raw resources between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter than exist on Earth. We just need to get there.
Really? Because this is from MS this is uncool?
This, plus kinnect, could be the interface of the future. Install it on the ceiling and you could project a video or keyboard on any flat surface. Never have to look for a remote again. Need a calculator, a recipe, a note pad, facebook, etc?
Or maybe it's just the pressures of reality. Ice loss this year will be about average and way above last year. Last year the artic lost ice cover due to, gasp, the weather. This year it is tracking about normal and overall thickness has actually increased.
If the warmistas can just find the missing heat, the debate would be over. But there's the rub.
Is a lie! I have 3 kids and I will not lie to them. For this time in history, I will tell them that they should do a cost-benefit analysis. If the cost of getting caught is less the the benefit, then they should at least consider it.
Bill Bellicheck won 3 Super Bowls as head coach of the Patriots and they cheated every year that they won. Things like bringing a snow blower on to the field to clear a patch for their kicker to sending spies to upcoming opponents to steal signal calls and playbooks.
Same thing with all of the PED usage in sports. If getting caught gets you a 30 day suspension but using PEDs gets you millions, then that is a pretty simple formula.
I don't like it myself, but it is the world we live in and you have to be slightly mercenary in your outlook. Morals are for arguing about afterwards.
Being able to print gun parts is a much bigger issue then YouTube yanking a video. The current push for gun control doesn't address this issue at all. It would be funny if it didn't have so many implications for society at large. Printable guns are going to happen. Printable guns will be disposable and untraceable. Why keep a gun when you can print another.
Oh Noes! Where will they ever find another place to put their videos?
YouTube is convenient, but not necessary. Anyways, as long as they don't yank the German making crossbows out of plywood, I think I'll survive.
What this study boils down to is that any two groups of people will have some correlation. X number of people do thing 1. Y number of people do thing 2. The intersection of those two groups can be correlated. In San Francisco, this same logic was used to outlaw Hostess Twinkies.
Take any two people in the study and you will find that there are vast differences in physiology, personality, childhoods, etc. Al Franken did a great parody during a past election, before he became a senator, breaking down the statistics of people who answered "I don't know" to a survey
question. One of the follow up questions was "Why don't you know" and there was a percentage of people who answered "Because I'm high".
The current and prior President of the United States smoked pot. The one before them didn't inhale, wink wink. I'd bet dollars to dougnuts that all three did coke at some point. To me, it is one of the greatest injustices in US history that 4 terms of PotUSes in the White House and cancer patients still can't eat a brownie.
That suggests you believe fetuses are alive. You are obviously....
Abortion is a right and the Right should just get over it. The Left won on this one. The Right should spend their time and money on providing a realistic alternative than attacking it.
These unionized workers were making much more then minimum wage.
What I don't understand is why they will be allowed to collect unemployment. They voted to not accept a new contract. How is that not the same as quitting? You don't get unemployment for quitting your job and the 5000 GCBCU members should be laughed at when they go to collect.
