Imagine your 90 year old grandmother suddenly regressing in age a bit, with a restored mental and physical agility.
Frankly, that would be awesome. I can think of few things that would make me happier.
Since you're so knowledgable about information you don't have access to, can you tell me if the tie I'm going to wear next Tuesday goes with the shirt I was planning to wear it with?
I have no idea.
Are you saying 97% agreement among expert judges does not fall under the term consensus?
That's not what I said. I said you don't understand what they agree on.
It's hard to build a net that can't be easily cut through.
It's hard to build a net that doesn't destroy the view.
Anyone who argues against things that people didn't say is wasting their own time. You are one of those people.
That is true, I am wasting my time, since you don't even understand what you are saying, you think there is a consensus, but you don't know what that consensus is.
If you understood what there is consensus on, then you would be more interesting to talk to. Instead you're just ignorant to talk to.
You are one of those people.
Put another way: if you get a degree in computer science, or you are self-taught using common resources, you probably have a skill set that reflects that reflects the bare minimum that a company will accept and you have a skill set that the market is flooded with.
If you have a CS degree from a decent university, you're competing with entry-level grads who just barely took an eight-week-course in programming from some coding bootcamp.
Somehow those guys manage to find jobs, and a CS degree is already more skilled than them.
Of the scientists who have expressed an opinion on AGW 97.2% endorse the consensus. only
The consensus isn't what you think it is. That is, if you ask scientists, "should we do everything possible to stop global warming now" or "will global warming cause millions of deaths in the next century," you will not get anywhere near 97%.
Yes, retirement would be different,
You would probably work for a while, retire for a while, work some more, retire some more, try something different, and keep going until you got hit by a car.
Why not try an all meat diet? Smarter people than you do: http://www.jbc.org/content/87/...
200mg of liver every day for dinner is not my idea of enjoyable eating. Anyway, have you tried it? Has it worked out for you?
Yeah, I got the just of it.
Glad to hear it.
And, about the drinking, if you were married to my wife; lemme tell yah...
