If you want to see my surgery from the surgeon's end of things, Here you go!
Yes, they gave me a DVD of it.
I hope i am not making judgement calls in the JE. I just wanted to convey my state of mind.
No, didn't sound judgmental to me, just wanted to offer my view of how diverse the mores of American Evangelical Fundamentalists can be (my view from having been in a fundamentalist community for a long time).
I would have expected a high correlation between the the Conservative Dress bucket and Non-Believers bucket.
I think there is a correlation so your expectation is justified, but there are all sorts of surprises from individual sects.
I also wonder about that cursing thing. She was scared of me thinking i might curse her. Where did that even come from?
That is very strange, who knows whether it was just childish imagination, doctrine or culture from the home or the church, or what?
Soon, every desktop in the world will be running it!
Next year, actually.
I assumed it was a joke. Nobody who has ever spent time in a US prison or spoken with someone who has would refer to the problem as 'an urban legend'.
Now how is Michio Kaku going to portray black holes as marauding monsters that travel around like itinerant serial killers, gobbling up everything in their path?
I suggest bringing in a robot sidekick named Maximillian to improve ratings.

EXAMPLES OF TERRORISM AND/OR TERRORIST ACTIVITIES
3.18.1 destruction of aircraft or aircraft facilities
3.18.13 damaging a protected computer used in interstate or foreign commerce or that is used exclusively by a financial institution or the United States Government
3.18.18 damage to Government property
3.18.19 destruction of communication lines, stations, or systems
Well, AFAIC under these definitions the IRS are terrorists.
3.18.29 the use of weapons of mass destruction
3.18.34 harboring TERRORISTS
3.18.35 providing material support to TERRORISTS
3.18.36 providing material support to terrorist organizations
3.18.37 financing TERRORISM

3.18.40 developing, transfering, possessing, or threatening to use atomic weapons

I've been in that area. The river is far enough away from the sides of the valley that it isn't eroding the slope. In my observational opinion. The river went through flat land, at least several hundred yards away from the valley wall.
Yes, the destruction of trees through harvesting contributes to water runoff. Why do you think flash floods happen in treeless areas like Utah box canyons?
Which is a slippery slope argument (literally!).
Deforestation contributes to landslides and water runoff volume. It is not a magic bullet. Landslides might still occur if the land on top of the cliff hadn't been logged. But they would be less likely. And you would have nice old growth forests.
No, I don't think you have the physics right. Water flowing into the hill from the top down causes the slide. The river is far enough away from the cliff that your scenario doesn't happen.
When the disaster strikes, I can count on my good old Republican corporations to save me, because they will profit. Oh, wait.
Trees reduce the water flows. It's not the anchoring depth of the roots that matters, but the water retained by the large trees.
Trees suck up water that otherwise causes slides.
You're focusing on the wrong variable with surface area. Figure out water flows and how trees smooth those out.
<< WAIT >>
