Re: Trend: Decline of motor fuels

I do not know what you mean about "a stream of electrons that wants to go every which way and can leverage the tiniest flaw to create problems" - Engineers have been dealing with electrons for a long time - they know how to control them. [more]

Re: Trend: Decline of motor fuels

Yes, electric cars will dominate all racing in the future. They have superior low end torque. Electric cars will not need to make fuel stops, and they will be lighter because they do not need to haul a tank full of gasoline around the track. [more]

Re: Trump is 'Selling Fear and Prejudice'

Trump is leading because he does it better than any other Republican!

I think they're most PO'd because all this time they've been using dog whistles and coded language. They didn't know you could just say it out loud.

Re: Republicans wrong...again...

" they seem to be consistently wrong. It's uncanny. It's almost to the point that if you want to know the truth of something find out what Republicans are saying and assume the precise opposite is correct."

They're not wrong.

Re: Life in Missouri

Thus Wieland would like a little help from the government just in case his girls disobey Daddy's religious beliefs.

With a Daddy like that, you can bet at least one of them will.

Re: What was in this to cause a $10+ drop ...

I can't quite believe a long term member of this board would even ask this question. It happens all the time. It's happened since I first bought some Apple stock in 2004.

Re: op-ed on revisionism...

...and the South. To this day many in the South insist the Civil War was not due to (at least in part) to the South's insistence on slavery.

The reason they need to revise yesterday is so they can continue to be racists today.

Re: Our Lazy Troll Explained

I love this quote from the article:

Re: Rupert Murdoch Tweets Donald

A Republican so scary, he scares Rupert Murdoch,

The only thing he scared Murdoch about was the overall tainting of the GOP brand. They know their based, but they also know the demographics. You need the base to win the primary, but [more]

It isn't mean to refuse to do something that violates your religious principals.(sic)

What you're talking about is an abuse of the word "principle". Those aren't "principles" at all. All you're doing is turning the [more]

Re: GOP=Classist + Racist

Isn't it funny to have the left and the right attack you for not adhering 100% to their views, when neither side is anywhere close to being 100% correct on anything?

That's the "two sides to every story" myth. Neither is [more]
