AFAIK not one of the five named as sleeping with Quinn ever denied it. One had even admitted it. As the last time I payed attention there was legal action ongoing the lack of denial has interesting implications. In any case, Quinngate never would have turned into Gamergate had the gaming press not turned their Cursed Shotgun of Moral Outrage+1(Wielders must act like the dumbest Paladin trope on crusade with no regard to the injury afflicted on party members) on the entire gaming population in a piss poor attempt at social engineering.

The issue with the Nazi medical experiments is that their methodology was utter shite. This means that figuring out what data is good vs what data is bad would be very difficult to say the least. You will see that we had no problem using the data from Unit 731. Why? Because they actually understood the scientific method.

This base canard again? To anyone paying attention, the only civilians on scene were the guys in the van. Which the guys in the chopper had no way of knowing they weren't connected to the guys carrying AKs and RPGs towards the marine component several blocks away.

Correct they are males. Would you care to guess one of the primary effects of testosterone? That's right, increased aggression. More germane to the discussion is that while you're average mentally ill person is not dangerous, that doesn't change the fact that every mass murderer in the past 30 years in the US was either obviously batshit crazy or a sociopathic terrorist of some form. Or employed by an alphabet agency

Sorry, but when someone, no matter their gender, asks me a question as vague as 'what is that' while pointing at my phone I'm not gonna assume they're asking which version of Android the phone is running. Instead I will assume lcd status of the questioner in regards to the object in question.

Actually really easy to spread for ISIS with a group of people willing to die for the cause. One person gets infected in liberia on purpose by drinking some infected blood. He then gets his ass to mexico, where 5 to 10 people wait for him to become symptomatic and then use his bliod to infect themselves. They get their asses across the border to our 5 biggest cities where other groups await to infect themselves and then dump infected fluis across the city and infecting the homeless or using needles and then passing them among the drug using population.. Then getting sick and dying themselves.

Bullshit. Saying green tech will help in any of the catastrophic models is like saying pissing on a house fire will put it out. Now, in the non-catastrophic models, green tech can help, but then it also won't be too hard for humanity to adapt to any changes. As such you would never gain the political will needed to implement said tech in India or China thus making the point moot.

if you want people to actually respect your pisition, then you should act like the realities of your position demand. In the case of AGW catastrophism that requires one of three positions. One, push for massive amounts of research into large scale carbon sequestration or other terraforming techniques. Two, call for the extinction of 80% of humanity. Three demand the entire world follow the living standard of a North Korean peasant. Those are your only three options to actually solving the situation. Everything else is just you slapping your dick in peoples faces.
