gay pride parade Belgrade

And I thought anti-gay feelings in much of the US were intense, these folks are unabashed in their hatred (or, if the gay pride speaker is correct, not hate but fear).

Looks like the West (specifically Britain in this case) continue to pay lip-service to "democracy", but continue to support despots.

abortion in Ireland

Wow...I wish there was this much pro-choice activism here in the US.

Re: The Clinton Legacy

We're supporting Hillary merely because she is the only democrat that looks like she has a ghost of a chance of winning in 2016.

Doesn't that depend on who the GOP runs? If they really run Ted Cruz I would think anyone could [more]

Re: Do the Democrats have any life

Yes. I just finished marking my Arizona early ballot and there was only one candidate I really feel like I was voting for. The rest . . . lesser of evils votes.

I'm almost done with mine, too. Several of my votes are purely defensive [more]

I see it as choosing to be shot in the gut or shot in the head. I have a chance to survive the gut shot. Sure, I'd rather not get shot, but that hasn't been a choice for several [more]

Apparently this is the advice of Faux "news" to young women (because they aren't well-enough informed).

Absolute dictator would be ok.
But president? I don't think so.


Funny...I said the same thing to someone just the other day. You want to make me absolute dictator, I'll take it on the condition that I can quit after 2 years. [more]

Re: Record warmth for Sept 2014

Alarmists claim to be "following the science" but when it comes to supporting their position they rarely use science.

Astrofool isn't using science? Hmmm....

Re: Natural Gas isn't helping

If the US (the biggest importer of Chinese goods) imposes carbon restrictions that include carbon footprint of imported goods, then demand for Chinese products will drop off a cliff and will force China to clean up.

Re: Maybe We Should Move To Hawaii

Hawaii is wonderful, but I don't think I'd want to live there. They're islands. Not very big islands. If you want to go anywhere it's not long before you need to get on a plane. I think I'd get bored out of my mind after a while (and I'm easily [more]

Re: Zoom lens comparisons

Not more "range", at least not because of the f-number. The f-number refers to the speed of the lens (or the light sensitivity, if you prefer). So the one that goes down to 3.5 is a bit "faster" (more sensitive) than the one that [more]

Re: Time emerges from quantum entanglement?

I was trying to expand on the implications of time being emergent from quantum entanglement. If that is the case, then something (even just two photons) must exist (and be entangled) or there's no time. There's no before, there's no after, there's no [more]

Agreed!
