Last week, Zuckerberg said, "For most of these folks, they will now receive money for something they never even knew they had. No one will be forced off the land."
Does that still apply after accounting for the fees for the lawyers they were forced to hire?

It is still a douchebag, asshat move. If he had actually attempted to determine ownership of the land, and then approached the owners with offers to buy, that would have been the proper opening move.

My insurance doesn't cover the full cost of anything, you fucking asshole. I don't use this medication but because insurance is a way of cost-sharing, I am paying for other people to use it. How in the absolute fuck did you get modded Insightful? By other people completely fucking clueless about how things work in real life? Shkreli can lube a porcupine with tar and shove it up his ass. Oh, wait, that would be cruel and unusual punishment... for the porcupine.

Comment Kitty litter (Score 2) 20

Kitty litter is not such an odd choice as the article makes it out to be. The mineral variety is typically made out of sodium bentonite. This is well known for its ability to absorb more than its own weight in water, which also causes it to swell and therefore seal cracks, enhanced by its self-sticking capability. Kitty litter has a well-defined grain size and would be fine to use so long as one didn't switch brands. Wikipedia even lists a method for determining whether kitty litter has bentonite or not.

Incidentally, I've read (although I can't remember where, but I'll have to put the effort into finding it sometime) that if you use ice core proxy data for the last 150 years, this spike is completely gone. Meaning, of course, these kind of "unprecedented, rapid" fluctuations could have been happening the entire time, and we'd never know, because we don't have anything other than low resolution proxy data for that time period.

That's a great argument style - blatantly lie and claim you'll look up the source of the lie later. Oh look, a graph with proxy data extending into the most recent 150 years, and showing a spike.

No, you won't reduce the weight. The flapping wings will decrease the pressure above them and increase the pressure below them. These pressure differences, when integrated over the surface area of the enclosed air space and averaged over the entire time the pigeon is flying, will exactly equal the weight of the pigeon.
