what? are you suggesting most pilots can't tell the difference between a bird and a drone? Fucking get real...... these guys/gals have hundreds of hours of training which I have no doubt now includes looking out for the toys of fuckwits. Anyway, even if they do mistake a bird for a drone, I sure as hell as a passenger would want them to report it. Go and play with your drone - or your cock if you like that better.

He may be able to read and describe a weather map, or condense information from the weather bureau into digestible lumps, but that does not make him a climate scientist any more that me having a home weather station makes me a climate scientist. It makes us both weather tinkerers at best.

You obviously cannot read and comprehend what you read - perhaps you need to go back to grade school and get some lessons.. I didn't ask you to prove anything (although you have proved yourself to be an intellectual cripple). I asked you to provide compelling EVIDENCE that the earth is not warming. There is a load of EVIDENCE that it is if you can actually read more than comics. And posting as AC reinforces what a stupid prick you are.

As a teacher with 35 years under his belt, I posit that men and women are different. In my - admittedly limited and anecdotal, and restricted to younger that 18yrs - experience there is a different communication mindset with girls compared to boys (women compared to men?) . I constantly see girls in groups of 8 or so with often one queen bee, and lots of conversation, whereas boys are generally in smaller groups and are quite happy to insult each other, throw a punch and grunt. Facebook emulates what I see in the yard with girls, Wiki-whatever emulates what I see in the yard with boys. Shoot me down if you feel the need to do so.

the ignorant cunt next to me isn't allowed to inflict his/her loud spoken conversation on me while I'm trying to sleep/tune out/read, then that's OK with me. As soon as they allow voice calls, air travel is well and truly fucked - much like going to a coffee shop in suburbia.
