There were multiple witnesses saying that Mike Brown had his hands up and was not attacking Darren Wilson when he was shot.

There were also multiple witnesses saying he wasn't. The grand jury decided that the he said/she said situation didn't add up to probable cause. What little physical evidence there was tended to support Wilson's version, although it was hardly conclusive.

And did you ever notice that the cockpits still have yolks for the pilots?

Well, who doesn't like eating a nice fried egg while they're flying? Perhaps you meant "yokes". If you did:

They are blocking undesirable content into their own country that a majority of the Chinese public agrees should be blocked.

You, of course, have ceritified polls to back up this statement.

Point me to where it says that. In the original post, please.

He said:

"what happens if you flick the extreme of a pencil, in space".

And in a later clarification:

Either the eraser end or the tip of the pencil

Looking back at it, I realize that I did assume that the "flick" wasn't aimed down the length of the pencil, but I think that's a reasonable assumption.

When all else fails, read the instructions.
