So, really... We are all stupidly dumb enough to ignore Science and we must wait until too late we get our feet wet?!

Yes, the human condition seems to regard the short term as the most important thing.

I predict that the Sea Hawks will cream the Pats big time!




That would be a good thing
Go Hawks

I thought the correct term was splut.

For those who have not been keeping track of the date tomorrow is the big day and I think Thor would like the proper behavior.

And if you want me to get REALLY political, I am all for government funded, single payor healthcare... the kind of healthcare we DIDN'T get with the recent reforms.
(Where is my liberal utopia, gosh darn it!!!

If the government is to be involved in health care, single payer is the only viable option. There is no reason to create a additional layer of bureaucrats in private insurance companies, wall street investment bankers wanting their payout, etc.

I agree that we have been saddled with a hybrid that is not optimal. President Clinton attempted a more radical overhaul and was torpedoed. President Obama decided to try a hybrid first. I hope it moves fellow Americans in the direction of a single payor system.

All good points.

Yeah good job Greece, you are about to put some serious pressure on the EU as a thing. And why? Because for decades you voted for corrupt politicians, allowed corruption and inefficiency to strangle the life out of your economy, lied your way into the Eurozone, and when all that stuff came out, you needed our billions of Euro's to prevent you from going bankrupt? And now you are telling us that the money we loaned to you, you are not gonna pay it back, despite the agreements that you made? Yeah, thanks for that, real classy letting the rest pay for your mistakes.

Now there is a real risk you guys are gonna end up leaving the Eurozone and perhaps even the EU. It won't help you one bit, you guys will still be poor, your politicians will still be corrupt and nothing changes. But in doing so you will leave the EU empowering every anti EU politician and fracturing the cohesion making it more likely for other countries to throw a fit and quit. You guys might actually be the death of the EU, the one organization that has brought unprecedented peace, prosperity and understanding to our continent.

So you are arguing that the EU did not do due diligence when bringing Greece into the EU?

W8.1 works OK for me but I find both versions of W8 to be weird with 8.1 a bit less strange

I agree, but there is precious little will to do so nowadays. In other words 'not likely to happen'.

The only way it could happen is if some guy like Elon Musk sees a way to make a buck and grabs the ball and runs with it.

Major the dismal view you put forth is true I feel. The human race does not have anything but a short term view. Frankly I feel the only viable chance our specie has is to get off planet and that isn't going to happen unless something that is profitable for the short term is found. Self sustaining colonies are our only chance IMO.

NE caught with hands in the cookie jar using underinflated footballs. Why do they think they have license to deviate from the rules? This is not the first time for them. I hope their karma follows them.

Thus you get less recognition (from Berkeley) for your effort if you do MB compared to AP.

So what?
