Linking together observatories spread across such a huge area...
It is a symptom of humanity's hubris to believe that an area the size of Earth is considered huge when measuring the massive black hole that sits at the center of our galaxy.
Take a look at these pictures of polio survivors. See the "rare" complications of surviving that disease? And who does pay for the treatment that those complications demand? Can you afford a lifetime of care for your child should they get paralysis from polio or brain damage from measles? How much cheaper (and safer) is a vaccine compared to that?
Nothing, even just stepping out your front door, is ever completely safe. We live in a dangerous world. Demanding that vaccines be 100 percent effective and 100 percent safe is an impossibility. That is why vaccine makers are shielded from liability through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, so that those that do have adverse reactions can be compensated and those that make the vaccines don't face financial ruin.
Finally, every time I hear someone say "Follow the money" in regards to vaccination I feel compelled to point out that if all that motivated a corporation was profit, they would profit more selling sixty years worth of treatment and care for all those polio victims rather than just provide two simple shots.
No, NO, NO!!
Get your units of measurement correct - this is like spotting a tater tot in orbit around a Volkswagen Bug 1000 miles away.
Kids these days,..
I don't see what kind of service exists currently at McDonald's, or any fast food restaurant.
Within two miles south or east of me are two McDonald's, each run by different franchisees. The one east of me is terrible, usually messy looking, slow to complete orders (and you better double-check that they got it right) and one where - on more than one occasion - I have witnessed intense arguments between employees held right in front of customers.
The other one is almost always clean, quick and courteous. The employees go out of the way to be helpful. While I hesitate to call eating at McDonald's enjoyable at least at that McDonald's I feel they do care about making my visit pleasant.
There are levels of service in fast food restaurants, even within the same chain. And while I would not mind seeing kiosks replace employees in at least one location I do feel that the other would lose something without its employees.
They may very well be dishonest, self-serving and manipulative, but are the complaints valid? Do the complaints about pay and working conditions stand on their own? If they do then Tesla needs to address those.
Has Tesla ever produced an analysis of their pay and benefits versus those of a unionized shop? Showing that there are advantages to working without unions sounds like a better response than assigning morality to what are essentially monetary transactions.
This is the third asteroid to buzz by earth closer than the distance to the moon this year.
That's it, I'm heading down to the local planning office at Alpha Centauri and lodging a stern complaint about this new hyperspace bypass.
This just in! Liberals can't handle losing. News at 11
Our country is now in serious and unprecedented trouble like never before.
This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy!
More votes equals a loss revolution!
Lets fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us.
We can’t let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!
The phoney electoral college made a laughing stock out of our nation. The loser one!
He lost the popular vote by a lot and won the election. We should have a revolution in this country!
- Donald Trump, 2012, when he thought Obama had lost the popular vote but won the electoral college
