Re: ‘123456’, ‘password’

Think of some of your favorite songs and favorite quotations, your favorites.

Use the words and letters of the songs to make up a password. You'll find you can remember quite a long one.

Re: More Frequent, More Severe

Well... if you're still insisting on the hiatus somehow disproving the theory there really isn't any help for you. You've clearly decided that your preservation of your ideology (whatever it is) is more important than facts. [more]

Re: More Frequent, More Severe

so far not a single prediction of climate change has been confirmed.

Actually? That's just a lie or a mistake.

Re: Settled Science

When you have nothing better to say, AD HOMINEM AWAY!

When you, as you just did, filter out the substantive message that was provided with that wee dig of mine, you simply prove my point.

Re: Settled Science

The only thing that is settled is your mind, which is clearly immobilized in some sort of permanent way when this subject appears.

We've learned to suspect the people who explain to us how not taxing land is a problem. Property tax is a form of land tax that confuses things by adding in tax on the value you add (or subtract) in the way of property.
