  3. Of course it can be applied to all facets of life and the decisions therein. But then so can yoga and ear candling. Now you might not hear what you want to hear when the results are in but someone might. For example, Cern just confirmed the existence of a new hadron, the tetraquark. Apparently it is composed of 4, count them 4, Charm quarks. And there are two each of Charm quarks and anti quarks. There is also a fifth something which we'll call a goober. No matter, no pun intended, but that's science. I'm not adjusting my schedule tomorrow as a consequence but if you think science is four parts goober and one part charm, and not the other way around, then you might take a second look.

  5. Did you mean to say if it's in stark opposition to one's social/political/economic and religious ideology? Science is not ever changing. Only the results of science that change based on new evidence. To claim otherwise is to scapegoat the scientific method to avoid confronting the unscientific method supporting one's own held beliefs. I'm not going argue too much about it. Science has it's place, but I will say that it is not the end all be all. Science has limitations and cannot be applied to all facets of life and the decisions therein. We are not automatons, nor should we be.

    Yep. In many places that is now "no shoes, no shirt, no mask, no service." I believe Michigan's law starts Monday. $500 fine and possible misdemeanor charge. Not sure what the penalties are in other states.

  8. How a "stable genius" wears a mask:
  9. That's nothing. The other day he successfully picked up a glass of water - with one hand!
  10. Trump bragged that he aced his cognitive ability test. Impressive! It's a standard test given to older people (for example when signing up for Medicare). Spell "world" backwards. Draw a clock face. What is today's date? Remember these three words* for 5 minutes. * examples being "table", "window", "book". What a genius!

    That idea can be simplified even further with "no shoes, no shirt, no service."

    I would suspect that the list of people who would like her silenced is rather long and distinguished. I would strongly suspect that there are people on it that have the connections and the ruthlessness, even though I doubt Trump is one (see below). While I don't doubt that Trump probably wants that to happen, I don't think he's quite stupid enough to do it (and expect to get away with it). Putin's vicious as all hell. He's good at it and he has a large group of people to make those sorts of things happen. While I don't doubt that Trump has a few goons and thugs on the payroll, murder is a big step up. There's no way Fauci could 'fall out of a window' and nothing happen. This isn't Russia.

    From the UK Metro news site: ============ A young conspiracy theorist has died of coronavirus after trying to catch the disease at a ‘Covid party’ to prove it was a hoax. The unidentified victim, who was in their 30s and from San Antonio in Texas, spoke of their regret to a nurse after testing positive for Covid-19 and being rushed to hospital, where they later died. Dr Jane Appleby, from Methodist Healthcare said: ‘Just before the patient died, they looked at their nurse and said “I think I made a mistake, I thought this was a hoax, but it’s not.”‘ Dr Appleby also spoke of her horror at hearing how the Covid-19 victim had attended a party with someone who tested positive for the disease in a bid to disprove experts’ warnings about the danger coronavirus poses. She told News4: ‘This is a party held by somebody diagnosed by the Covid virus and the thought is to see if the virus is real and to see if anyone gets infected… It doesn’t discriminate and none of us are invincible. I don’t want to be an alarmist and we’re just trying to share some real-world examples to help our community realize that this virus is very serious and can spread easily.’ Texas has seen a massive surge in coronavirus cases since mid-June, and has now recorded more than 250,000 diagnoses, and over 3,100 deaths. Governor Greg Abbott has ordered his citizens to wear a mask in public, after being criticized for reopening the Lone Star state too early. =============

    It was shut down because you could not let it go. You're right - like I said, I've been here long enough to know better than to feed the trolls, especially the flagrant ones that apparently really get off on it. Good on you for holding me to a higher standard and going out of your way to bring new antonymous definitions to the word "moderator." I'm sure I'll grow to be a better person for it - thanks!

    I'm selling my rig because I haven't jumped in a few years. Freshly inspected with a reserve repack (07/11/2020). Ready to jump. The rigger also performed a 40lb non-destructive pull test due to age. There are about 400 jumps on the system. The container is fully articulated and features an RSL as well as a hook knife under the left flap. The container is in amazing shape. The colors are sharp, and the black deep. All tabs are stiff. It’s been well cared for, and transported/stored in a carry bag (included). Freefly friendly. For reference I’m 5’10, and have ranged in weight from 170lbs to 145lbs. It always fit perfectly. I suspect it could fit a wide range of sizes/weights. 1999 Javelin J3 - black / sky blue / grey Sabre 1 170 (forget DOM, label faded.

  21. This might put it in perspective: I have a VK 96 ps, Airwolf 96 H1, and Wairwolf 96. I have two rigs and the VK is on the bench if that tells you anything.
  22. All he is doing is siting the numerous failed predictions of the demise of the arctic. The discredit lies with the alarmists.
  23. Well, it's interesting that the messenger revels in the fact that he has been specifically admonished by the authors of the studies he cites for drawing unwarranted conclusions from their work.
  24. thank you , but I am not asking about the person who signs the card , i am asking about DZ. should the DZ. be the USPA affiliated DZ. ?
