Comment Re:It's "seeing" blocked RF signals (Score 1) 40

It's more like a passive MRI if the logarithm and device sensitivity could be dialed in just right.

Whether screening for disease at the hospital, scanning for weapons at the airport or in public or looking through walls to see people making drugs or bombs it could be useful. Miniaturized enough this could be a precursor to a star-trek tricorder.

There are real possibilities here.

Everything since has been an attempt to educate you on how not to be an ass in public.

There's no need to take this upon yourself. The facts that have been propagated by the entertainment industry does not match actual observations. I am sorry if that makes you uncomfortable but you can't wish away reality by calling people names. Real observations don't care for politics.

Now enough of this. You patently have nothing constructive to add.

to sequester the CO2 in the trees

You're not getting it. It takes energy to do this. In one form or another. Electricity has to be generated for the heating elements to get hot enough to create charcoal, or something has to be burned near enough to make it hot.

Even then it's pointless as the process to make charcoal to begin with requires an atmosphere starved environment. There's no CO2 to absorb, and produces other harmful elements.

They mean well, but they are just as ignorant as the fat cat paying their salaries. In the meantime I am certain someone has something to *sell* you to save the planet.

Show me where I did this?

Speaking in generalizations here. Not a *personal* ( ad-hominem ) attack.

Maybe, or maybe people just don't like it when you act like an arrogant, condescending jackass. Especially when you're acting like that and unequivocally wrong at the same time. Free speech means the government doesn't interfere with your right to say what you like, it doesn't mean people have to like you or the odious things that you post. People can like free speech and still think you're an overbearing, know-nothing ass who they'd rather not associate with.

Escalating beyond what I had mentioned as a generalization.

It'd be nice if people who believe that also thought they had a duty to use that right responsibly. All too often I see verbal bullies hiding behind "free speech" as shield from the predictable consequences of the offensive things they say.

Pot, meet kettle. A typical defense used by spin doctors in the liberal camp.

From your track record, you probably are. In fact, I'd say in this case you've layered incorrect opinions so deep, you probably need professional help to come back to terms with reality.

Appeal to authority. *Yawn*

If you can't understand the difference between behaviour and character, how can we do anything but doubt the truth of your (biased) observations?

Loaded Question, and an ad-hominem attack.

Do you have anything new to bring to the debate or will you finally concede your defeat through continued attempts on my character / behaviour?

Actually, it's mostly you who appears to have lost the ability to think critically (if you ever had it). Simply put, If you were able to think critically you wouldn't have resorted to personal attacks when I told you that your anecdotal story doesn't back up the position that you claimed it did

Show me where I did this? Sure didn't stop you from escalating.

You are correct and suffice it to say my opinion of your opinion is of the same low esteem. The line is drawn in regards to free speech when those domestic terrorists start using force to exert their will outside of the physical protections provided by law. This is our right. You don't have to like my opinion, I don't have to like yours. But neither of us is allowed to use force to coerce the other to our way of thinking or beat our opponent into submission.

We all have the right to say what we want without fear of physical violence. Freedom of speech died first on the Internet, and now there's fascist groups like antifa trying to quell opinions they don't like by using terrorist tactics of oppression. People who broke down because the words trump 2016 were chalked on the sidewalks are now attacking anyone that disagrees with them. This fits the tried and true profiles of mental disorder, but I could be wrong.

You can attempt to attack my character all you want, call me names etc, it won't change the truth of my observations.

Either way, we have strayed far from the topic and this is just another dead horse we're beating.
