punch in 400000 (kt) in the yield box, and see what happens. Yeah it's big, but not as big as Texas. That would take something about 100 times the size of tsar bomba. I don't even know if that's theoretically possible.
I listened to that speech. He never said "Mexicans are rapists." What he said was no less ridiculous, though. He said Mexico is sending over rapists and murderers, as if there's some concerted effort by the Mexican government to send the worst elements of their society over here. There are Mexican rapists and murderers, but there's no evidence that they are being sent over the border on purpose. That's what's funny, rather than attacking the stupid thing Trump actually says and means, several people attack him for a few snippits here and there that are more shocking, but easy to disprove.
This happens all the time. Like the whole Obama "you didn't build that" thing. He was saying that you should pay your fair share as a company, because you didn't build the infrastructure that helps you be successful (like roads and bridges). But the media would rather latch onto four words, because it's easier to get people's attention. The difference is with Trump, the more of the context you listen to, the crazier he seems. When he goes and tries to clarify what he meant ("I was being sarcastic, but not that sarcastic") it gets even more troubling/confusing/horrifying. Maybe not as immediately shocking but terrible all the same.
But listening to the Billy Bush tape, while excruciating, he actually brings up an interesting point that we should be talking about as a society. When a women doesn't push back say "no" when a famous person sticks his tongue down her throat, is that consent? I would argue that it is not, but clearly there is a large section of the populace who disagrees with me. I would like to have that conversation. Instead, all the press wants to do is talk about the word pussy being used, which is outright stupid. It allows Trump to deflect the accusation by saying people use that word all the time.
Similarly, if Mr. Trump has any evidence to back up his claim that Mexico is sending rapists across the border intentionally, I would like to see it. This would be a very troubling development, and something that I would expect the federal government to address immediately. Instead he gets to say "well somebody's doing the raping," since the press chose to focus on the wrong part of the horrible things that he says.
Of course they will also goof off at times, take personal days, or sneak out early to run a personal errand... You get points for showing up early and leaving late
Interesting. When I need to run an errand, I tell my boss, "hey, I gotta leave at 3 to get my ferret neutered." And he says, "OK." As long as I have all my work done, nobody gives a shit. On the other hand... I left pretty late one day, but I had forgotten to do something I said I would do. Do you think my boss cared that I was working late? Nope. He cared that I didn't get that report to Jenkins in time for his meeting in the morning. (Actually I texted Jenkins around 7:30 that night, and he said it was cool, but whatever, bossman wanted results). If neither of us are busy he might drop by my office to see if I have seen $latest_viral_video$. He might even invite one of my hourly guys to come watch, too. At the end of the day, team-building really does matter. I have a loyal team.
I talk to my kids about numbers all the time. When my wife tells them how dangerous it is to play outside by themselves, I show them the NHTSA and FBI stats saying that they are far more likely to die in a car crash than get kidnapped. But they're not scared of getting in the car. Why not? I tell them they are more likely to be harmed by sitting on their butts playing on their iPad than by going out and getting some exercise. Of course, then one of them goes and falls on a rock and gets a concussion. Fukken kids.
we did cross an ocean from the other side of the world to participate in your defense.
Yeah. It takes at least three rounds to get that transport to Algeria pipeline going. Don't even get me started on the naval buildup required to take Tokyo (assuming the bastards don't invade Mexico.)
One good reason why computers can do more work than people is that they never have to stop and answer the phone.
