Re: Religion(s) of peace

Shay's Rebellion and Massachusetts' inability to quickly suppress it was a big reason they convened to create a stronger national government and, I' love pointing out, the context for the Second Amendment. The purpose of "the right to bear [more]

Re: Human head transplants practical in 2 years

Meanwhile Boehner's can go in the deep freezer until somebody finds s useful application for it. Might take awhile.

Is that why we always see Nixon's head in documentaries of the future?

Re: Question about matter/antimatter asymmetry

It can't be the cosmic microwave background; that was created at a much later time.

Most of the energy of the universe, however, is tied up in dark energy and dark matter. I don't know if these could hold that either though -- it's not clear [more]

Re: Islam & free speech

rmhj: Regrettably, I think the Enlightenment, like democracy, cannot be forced on a culture from the outside.

Re: resistance is life

The Kurds are mostly from the areas near where Iran, Iraq, and Turkey border. They're not popular in any of those three countries, between Turkey's genocide of the Kurds early in the last century (not particularly well-known) and ongoing attempts to [more]

Re: Vaccination Maintenance

Born in 51 and have had Measles, Mumps, and Chicken Pox, but not Rubella that I know of. Since I couldn't find anything that told me I didn't need MMR because I had it as a kid, I just went ahead and got it. Not sure what Rubella is. [more]

Re: Vaccination Maintenance

Back then, they'd have disease parties (measles, chicken pox, etc) where mothers would bring their children to play with the child who was infected. The idea was to get it over with before the kids started school.

Re: F* Politics! Answer This!

I am convinced Peggy Noonan doesn't have bodily functions. Why don't we ask her?

That can't be right: she's fully capable of metabolizing ethanol. She might lack any other metabolic functions, but I'm sure she can do that.

Re: The anti-vax clown car

Re: who gets measles?

I know my parents were less narcissistic than me and their parents less narcissistic than them. Not sure why that is, except that they had gone through very difficult times 1930-1945 and knew what real suffering looks like.
