Talk about delusional, we have Neil Degrass Tyson supporting the human caused global warming alarm-ism and saying that the universe is likely just a simulation. If we are in a simulation, does it matter if the earth is screwed? The entity running the simulation could decide to reboot anytime they want.

Comment Destination Unknown (Score 1) 139

I watched the episode and they tested a theory that he didn't actually jump out of the plane, he just jumped up and down to make it seem like he did. He then waited until the approach into Reno which is flat and covered by scrub brush. He took two of the four chutes so he could have thrown one of the chutes and some money as a diversion. One problem I had with this theory is that he wouldn't have known ahead of time that they would go to Reno. He had requested Mexico but they ran low on fuel due to flying at low altitude.

Comment Re:No Grid Penetration (Score 1) 574

I'm a former employee of a different electric utility in Vermont. If this were really a state sponsored attack on the grid, Vermont would be the absolutely the worst place to attack first. We only have two connections to the outside world and they are for incoming power only. The utility in this story only serves the city of Burlington so is one of the smaller utilities in the state.
