    Technically, Chaucer is middle english. Comprehensible to the patient and well read, but slow and difficult.

    I think somethings about to come out, and he's trying to get ahead of it. Possibly when Hicks testifies.

    It amazes me that some people insist on reading a particular bible translation from centuries ago, and then don't bother to inform themselves about how the usage of words has changed over time.

    In this context "God sits above the Compass of the Earth" compass probably means neither a direction finding device nor a measuring device, but instead "boundary" as in "encompass." The emphasis on...

    You can put it another way: The planners get their arm twisted to add bike lanes, and they put it where they think it makes sense, not how it would be best for either bikes or cars.

    I imagine that the effects of the foam on photons that pass through them average out into the uncertainty we observe in the photon's path.

    The Shakers were a popular cult in the late 19th and early 20th century. However, they forbade sexual reproduction, and quickly died...

    Yeah, bike lanes suck. The better solution is to take a narrow or underutilized street and make it all bike/pedestrian, whether all the time or just during particular times. Bikes sharing a street...

    That's not the problem. The problem is that it would cost 1000 dollars for every truck, and the guys won't use it.

    yeah, THAT would trip the breaker at the substation.
  13. You would need a lot of ground fault interruptors...

    You would need a lot of ground fault interruptors on the power lines itself, not the truck. How could such an interruptor tell the difference between a short like you describe and merely increased...

    We never claimed it was all 'made up' by the same person or source.

    Our claim is that it is a mixed collection of stories, some of which are entirely fabricated, and some are biased histories, and...

    Don't forget that your experiences might be atypical. I don't remember the exact statistic, but Americans in general tend to think little of changing from one sect to another (40% have at least...

    I have my computer hooked up to my flat screened TV, and so had no problems. Occasionally I watch things on an older IPad, and have had no problems, though I didn't watch this particular show that...

    Linguistic coincidence. There's absolutely no other similarity between the two. There are only so many sounds a human mouth can make, and these coincidences are extremely common.

    But you absolutely could. All you need is the sun and the earth. Other Planets and stars are unnecessary.

    And that is one of our primary objections to your religion. If this Earth is the...

    I also watched it. While I love Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, I found this adaptation slightly boring. Tennant and Sheen were great, just about everything else less so.

    Every religious schism is based on politics. How many breaks of churches have we seen in America in our lifetime? More than I can count! Christianity is grinding itself to powder.

    The reason we oppose police pursuits is because they are generally done in vehicles up to 100 miles an hour, endangering the public. There's absolutely no one who objects to police foot pursuits. ...
