The CIA has been helping the Libyan rebels for weeks. Obama refuses to comment.
Gaddafi’s minister of the interior has fled to the UK.
Japan will not enlarge the evacuation zone around Fukushima. Probably that’s because it’s already too late.
Proboscis monkeys ruminate.
Molecular biologists often use dyes to make proteins visible in cells. By binding proteins, these dyes can stabilize their folding… extending the lifespan of Caenorhabditis elegans and promising to at least slow down Alzheimer’s. German news feature here. â Curcuma, not mentioned here, is said to have the same effects.
The world’s oldest buttercup (in a broad sense) was found in the place with all the feathered Early Cretaceous dinosaurs.
We had so-called minestrone: carrots, celeriac, green onions, white cabbage, garlic, potatoes, caraway, pepper, oregano, rosemary, thyme, salt, and a tiny amount of Ras el-Hanout couscous spice. Edible for me when put through a blender; tastes good. :-)
It doesn’t… but why do you bring it up out of the blue? ~:-|
It’s not. A simple “ad infinitum” would have been enough, though. :-)
:-D This is actually full of win.
If you really did, why didn’t you just go to bed and let us wait? We can wait.
And, really, “” â that’s an insult to your own intelligence. Jadehawk showed you peer-reviewed scientific papers with lots of statistics in them, and you imply they must just be random opinions because scientific journals are available on the Internet these days?

Translation: you’re confused when words have different ranges of meaning in different areas, and you don’t like being confused.
I suggest you adapt to these circumstances. Won’t be terribly easy â I recognize my own Asperger symptoms in you â, but it’ll be worth it.
It all becomes crystal-clear, and tautologically true, if you assume that John means “to be oneself” literally â as in “not part of the same Bose/Einstein condensate as anyone else”.
…Yes, that was intentional what I just did there.
I can’t possibly plan that far ahead.
Would need some reference to herding of cats…
Or just “The Pharyngula Horde”?
FFS! It’s not supposed to be neutral! That’s why there are separate Labor and Economy departments!!!
…There are, aren’t there? I don’t know of cases where the same department was charged with the contradictory interests of both, other than Nazi Germany and Austria’s right-right coalition government (conservatives/xenophobes) of 2000â2006.
Who doesn’t. :-9
That’s not grammar, it’s politeness, you sick fuck.
From Yiddish hazloche “good luck” and broche “blessing”.
You’ve been hiding that well, you know. I used to think you’re close to the happy end of the spectrum of people. Now I feel even more clueless, and that makes me fear what else you’re hiding, and what everyone else is hiding…
*hugs and chocolate*
So… physorg.com is too stupid to actually link to the paper.
It’s in PLoS ONE! That means it’s only on the Internet, and there’s no paywall around it! There simply is no excuse not to link to it.
Or… oh shit, already 4 links in this comment.
200th birthday of Robert “Burner” Bunsen! :-)
All this really stands out the more languages you know. English has three words, belief, faith and trust, where German has only two; there’s no equivalent to faith, and religious faith is covered by “belief”.
Similarly, just the other way around, you have no idea how glad I am that the word mind exists. German has no such thing and uses “spirit”, I kid you not.
That’s not an analogy, that’s just bad poetry.
Electromagnetic waves don’t dampen. If they head off in different directions, their density (luminosity) decreases with distance, but a laser in a vacuum can shine unchanged to the other side of the universe. In matter, they don’t lose energy on their own either, they’re absorbed and reemitted with losses.
What you can postulate is that, given the right kinds of society, a sufficiently large society sooner or later will end up discovering “everything”, just not necessarily in the same order, let alone at the same speed â like in a Civilization game. Supporting evidence is that we finally have surpassed the precision of the Mayan calendar, the literacy rates of ancient Rome*, and the sanitation of the Indus culture, we have solved Zeno’s Paradox twice over, and Iowa is now catching up with the moral progress of the Hittite empire at the end of the Bronze Age *snark oozing off this comment like radiating lava through the basement of Fukushima 3*. But even this is something I’d be careful with unless given really long timespans.
