Get on with the times and make your talking points current. Your facts are currently in 2014. This is the drill: temperature has gone up in 16 years, it has gone up in 17 years, it hasn't gone up in 18 years, it has gone up in 19 years, it has gone up in 20 years....
So please quote 18 years as your refutation for climate warming, dammit.
If the US had been structured like the EU, we'd have had much more than one civil war.
The US funds their 'Greek states' by funneling federal money over to them and reducing their sovereignity even further in the process. 'Schengen' is there in the US -- do you need a passport/visa to cross state lines? Who takes care of immigration in the US? And finally, the only civil war the US had was about leaving the union, a thing we're now going through with Brexit. No war in sight.

The only argument so far I heard about the headphone thing is indeed that the jack is old. So it needs to go. A feature-by-feature comparison shows however that this is not necessarily progress.

If God had not given us sticky tape, it would have been necessary to invent it.
