Buy a bunch of matches then tell me your e-mail.

Light them.

as soon as I can smell your match lighting activity, I'll email you that I caught a whiff.

Add as many friends or family you need to. Maybe add a nation or two.

Try some math. figure out how many square inches of the plant we live on is, then multiply that figure by how many pounds of air per square inch.

Then check out the worst numbers of the environmentalists and see how many damaging tons we boost into whatever catastrophe.

If you're good at math, you'll just apologize.

People can live without a clothing dryer.

It's been five years for me, and I have an unused front loader dryer for sale.

I have an umbrella line for good weather drying in the good Illinois weather months, and clothing racks and lines for winter drying.

After I switched to air drying, my clothing longevity jumped massively. I went from a pair of jeans lasting a year or two to never wearing out jeans (so far).

I believe that climate is cyclical, and is driven by solar changes, radiation changes, and world tilt. I don't believe in MMGW, and I don't believe we can change global climate.

But it's stupid not to scrub carbon from coal plants, put cleaner water back into the the environment than we take out, and do everything we can to make sure we don't pollute like china does. I don't want cities to be lost in a fog of bad like it regularly happens in China.

I can reliably say that China smog has no effect on Illinois. And that's why I think we should focus on real issues like local contamination rather than focus on enriching people that make money on carbon trading credits.

If I had the money to buy the mission, I'd send a carved rock to be deployed that would indicate that either John Carter or I owned Mars, and that we would have to sword fight for ownership.

My guess is that John Carter never made it to Mars, but if he did and and If I had to I could arrange a meeting place and nuke the entire site from orbit. Itâ(TM)s the only way to be sure. Cause I suck at sword fighting.

I have to worry about terminators now? I've spent the last 40 years scared to death of the big radioactive insects and gigantic dinosaurs stomping the cities apart!

I've been waiting in vain for the flying cars and the shuttles off planet during all that time, but have been a bit disappointed.

I shall run screaming from the oncoming robot overlord killing machines!

Ahhhh! Ahhhhh! - Gahhk!

I got modded down being an ex-microsoft schill posting against Microsoft!

Please review my comments over the past many years :) I was pro - microsoft and now after Post XP I am against Microsoft due to the increasingly crappy OS's they release.

Anyone who likes the stupidly long search times, and the complete pc lockups that occur because Microsoft has repeatedly released OS that were progressively ( i can't find a word to express more than abysmal) are really encouraged to keep modding me down.

I hope that one day you are held up to a spotlight and identified for keeping a person hating what MS does down.

Comment: Three walls? (Score 1) 501

Lemont Illinois got hammered in the 70s-80s, plainfield,il got blasted in the in the 90s - and in the 2012 era the tornadoes have swung south of I-80 or along that line.

This is a tiny fraction of the area that three gigantic walls are supposed to do something to protect.

Anyone who thinks that Man can build Tornado Killer Walls should ask themselves why we can't predict gigantic storms on a regular and professionally reliable basis less than three hours in advance , but can back "tornado killing walls" and saying the science is settled - this can be done.

I think we have a better chance of predicting an earthquake or volcano sometime in the next hundred years, than we do predicting how to stop tornadoes from hitting the midwest in the near future.

Why is "mining for bitcoins" worth anything? Does the mining do anything like help SETI or share processing to crunch real world stuff?

If it has an intrinsic value, then I'd support helping the guy in the OP, but if it's seriously just a ponzi scheme - then I'd support law enforcement on taking it down.
