You're really going to watch 3d commercials?

While commercials do work, they rely on a tiny fraction of the viewing audience noticing what was advertised. Nobody is fascinated by commercials' content; nobody is going to keep their 3d glasses on when the commercials come on; and no advertiser is going to shoot 3d commercials. Except as a gimmick.

Doing other stuff during commercials is only sensible.

yes

and obviously it's ignorant

americans are feeding crony financial parasites and getting nothing in return "because capitalism" when it's not capitalism at all

and never can be capitalism: capitalism is pretty wonderful but only works in certain economic sectors. it's not magic unicorn farts you sprinkle on anything and then everything is fixed because magic, which is unfortunately the extent of many americans' understanding of capitalism

Comment definitely due to the rise of the populist right (Score 0, Troll) 693

like you see with trump in the usa

and, like trump, it's financially and politically retarded

scotland will leave, and northern ireland may, and britain will suffer a number of financial costs it has to pay now

so now britain is significantly poorer and weaker

all because some old morons don't like immigrants

the real issue is why these people are so angry, and the obvious answer is they feel poor while they perceive immigrants as coddled

and they are poor... because of plutocratic abuses, not immigrants

plutocratic abuses the political *left* has answers to

but the old morons reject the left for various stupid and propagandistic reasons

like americans rejecting universal healthcare, even though it's far cheaper and equal or higher quality. because "capitalism." when it's just cronyism

old poor morons like plutocrats to have gold toilets i guess, and are too fucking stupid to see how or why that's all their uneducated opinions lead to

See this for a good explanation.

Delta-v from low earth orbit to the sun requires shedding 24km/s. Delta-v from earth orbit to pluto only requires 8.4km/s.

Actually you can get to the sun with far less -- something like 8.8km/s -- but it would take fantastically longer. In effect you would escape the entire solar system first, then kill your angular momentum completely.

Or you could take advantage of moon or other planet flybys, again reducing the energy required by trading it for massive amounts of time.
