Forget about any badges of honour teacher, what do those dates have in common?

Don't rag on him too hard, the only class he taught might have been titled: "The Correct Natural Order, WASP and the chosen Tribe" At least from his posts here that seems to be what he advocates. ;-)

One can tell when people are old and think in terms of a pair of copper wires into the home and a crank to generate a ringer voltage as it was when they were working ....

It must some new fangled BT thing where you can connect an answering machine to your smartphone ...

When you hit reject on the smartphone my dear friend it automatically connects the call to voice mail. There is even a feature where you put in the objectionable jerks # into a reject list that is routed directly to voice mail. However sometimes you will still hear a single ring because it doesn't quite happen instantly. There are even "apps" for these smart phones that share user generated lists of jerks #'s so you gain from others experience.

Thought tRump wanted to do away with regulations on business?
https://www.afp.com/en/news/205/g20-consensus-protectionism-damaging-global-economy
The Group of 20 major economies sent a message Friday on the threat that rising protectionism poses to the global economy, but the United States cast doubt over its adherence to that stance.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin reiterated the Trump administration's emphasis on defending America against what it sees as unfair trade practices, and called on the IMF to do more in its watchdog role.

His comments came just hours after a meeting of G20 finance ministers in Washington which saw Germany's Wolfgang Schaeuble say there was "broad agreement" that "free trade is better for global growth."
Apparently he wants more regulations on business!

As I (and a few others) have said... The MAIN problem in all of this is the insanely immense size of the human population... We, as a species, can't afford it any longer.

+7 billion

If we don't reduce, nature will cook us and reduce us that way.

Possibilities for the downsizing include, of course, war, famine, and pestilence.

Somehow I don't see humans choosing any of those as a means of reduction.

Idiots may start the war, but not to reduce AGW.
Idiots may refuse to vaccinate and we get pestilence, but not to reduce AGW.

Famine is likely a result of AGW, so by then it is too late and also we already have a good number of the population hungry already.

A lottery for a license to have a baby or a one child policy is perhaps the best that can be hoped for, and it won't be fast enough so we will have to adapt.

David, I've given up on many Mickey Dee's locations. What I've noticed, if I've been able to know, is at the few corporate owned stores I never have problems. Franchise stores, orders flat wrong, wrong prices on the registers and the menu boards, product late, soda machines that don't work or have only 1 flavor available. In other words, everything that can go wrong does and all at once and no one cares or ever fixes it. Saw one where the employee put the napkins that the customers left on the tables back in the dispenser. Saw another where the employee picked up several drink lids that were down in the drain trough and shook the crap off and put them back in the rack. Even was in one that had raw sewage running on the floor and they thought it was fine to be open. Needless to say I didn't and neither did the health department.

As to KFC, in this neck of the woods several outlets have closed. I had issues with them, usually out of product can you wait 20 minutes ...... a couple of times I know I came in after someone bought out all the white meat and it was either wait or take a couple extra pieces of dark. Can't say as I ever seen one that wasn't clean though. I do appreciate that they don't do the old Mickey Dee trick and make up huge batches to go stale under heat lamps, but at lunch or dinner rush that fryer should never be idle, and with their data mining they should have a good idea just how much they need to make every hour of the day. In any case I've found a sit down place that can serve me a 1/2 chicken in a three course meal for about 1/2 the price KFC wants for theirs. Different spices, but also a lot less salt and that is a good thing.

Anyway had a Hula burger from Islands tonight.

The bane of the world. Because some distant relative [or member of a group you belong to] did something you are guilty of it too.

I am suggesting everybody to read the May issue of CERN Courier, already on line, on the subject of Dark Matter. There are three articles covering its history and developments, including the fact that dark matter seems less abundant in old galaxies basing on the rotational curves of spiral galaxies, which were the main argument Vera Rubin had used to establish the presence of Dark Matter.
Tullio
Interesting. So could dark matter be being emitted by fusion? So that as a galaxy ages normal matter is converted into dark? Or is there a time factor in the equations of gravity?

Nearly half a century ago, Richard Nixon called for an "all-out offensive" on drug abuse. It was the opening salvo in America's longest running war.

@Gary and MajorKong.
Here is many graphs that shows anthropogenic CO2 emissions from 200 years ago to today.
https://www.google.se/search?q=anthropogenic+co2+emissions&espv=2&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiWgNr89LDTAhXDGCwKHbskDx8Q_AUIBigB&biw=1574&bih=977
Now. EVERY graph indicate that CO2 emissions wasn't a problem until for about 200 years ago.
Going back 35,000 year?
None of those graphs indicate what proportion of CO2 in the atmosphere is human caused. They only show how much more we shoved in on a given year. If we have been lucky and nature's fraction has been going down while we have been going up, we have been very lucky, but you graphs don't look at that, they only show the total.
