What the fuck does that nonsense have to do with anything that I said?
My point is that floods like this have been happening for as long as there has been weather. I think one would be hard pressed to blame any one of them on climate change specifcally. Even if AGW were the cause, the scale of any individual flood that didn't span at least an entire sizeable country is simply far too small to generally attribute to it. Frankly, it looks to me like Mr. Nye is just using a catchy phrase ("climate change") to get press without putting some actual hard science behind his reasoning, which is kind of ironic, considering the full moniker he is publically known as.
The comparison of this number to assorted lude and crude innuendo and various "your mom" jokes is left as an exercise for the reader.
what exactly are you missing?
Schematics, and the ability to tinker.
I wasn't addresing the issue of breaking the law without knowing it when keeping things secret. If you don't know that you've broken the law by doing something, unless there was some aspect of privacy that was otherwise involved, you wouldn't generally have a reason to think you needed to hide that in the first place. My point is that people have things that are private even *IF* there was nothing wrong with what they want to keep hidden (to anyone who says otherwise, you could ask them why they are wearing clothes... is there something wrong with their body?) My point being that even if a person has done absolutely nothing illegal (ignoring the side-issue that you raised of everyone doing illegal stuff without knowing it), that person still has things to hide... again, not because they have necessarily done anything wrong, but because those things are simply private.
As for the issue of the consequences or possibly even undesirable repercussions to speech making that speech somehow less free, that might be the case if you consider freedom synonymous only with anarchy. Freedom to do or say something can entail the responsibility to still be accountable for what you do or say, and still be freedom in nearly every other sense of the word.
Why should freedom of expression necessarily mean freedom of accountability for such expression?
Not trying to troll... this is a serious question.
Barring the situation where one is living under an actual oppressive regime wherein the government surreptitiously "silences" anyone who expresses disagreement with them, I don't see how that is an issue. The USA still definitely has its problems, but it is one of the furthest places I can think of in the world from having such a regime.
I am not an advocate of the notion that "if you've done nothing wrong you have nothing to hide" either, because I do believe that everyone has something to hide, even if they haven't done anything wrong. Some things are kept secret or hidden not because there is anything wrong with them, but simply because they are private. Using social media, however, isn't exactly private, so I'm not sure what the issue is with anonymity in such forums.
It's not what I can't run... it's that the entire system is less open. The Apple 2, for instance, was openable, an end user could easily plug in cards into available slots much like what PC ISA would years laters, and the manual that came with the machine even had a complete schematic for the computer!
No.... Apple is not more open than they used to be. Not anywhere close.
