  1. My take: Scriptwriters should aim for the...

    I'm applying Woke ideology. Halle Berry hasn't had the lived experience of being a plain woman; for her to play that experience on screen is misappropriation.[/QUOTE]

    Do you feel that casting, in...

    So, it is not an issue of admitting the most "qualified" students after all for you.[/QUOTE]

    If admitting the less qualified brings in enough money to pay for another position nobody is losing...

    No. I'm talking about the burn needed to send a...

    I'm weak in orbital mechanics, so I'm not understanding what you're suggesting. Do you mean that it's easier to reach Venus than it is Mars? By 'injection', are you referring to putting a craft into...

    Good. The more deniers that get infected the better it is for America.
  5. Why would legacy be relevant? I agree about...

    Why would legacy be relevant? I agree about donor--so long as the school gains enough to fund an additional position donor admissions do no harm so long as they aren't too numerous. I would like to...

    I've seen multiple women use men's rooms. Never have I seen any noticeable reaction by anyone in the men's room, beyond "go ahead" type responses when she apologized for the intrusion.

    Dead people don't have much of an economy.

    And we can save both the people and the economy if we get serious about masks.

    In case 2 why does she need to tell all? The important bit is some things that will only come out upon her death.

    Huh? Venus injection is .28km/sec, Mars injection is .39km/sec. (Assuming it's done in low Earth orbit, numbers are in addition to Earth escape. Ion engines need more delta-v.)



    I do agree...

    Well if that is what you are into, I got no problem with that. ;)[/QUOTE]

    The only person I know that's into that I would not describe as a leftist by any means.

    The guy in charge behaved in a fashion many find disgusting. They don't want to deal with his company and are publicizing why. This is nothing compared to the conservatives calling for a boycott of...

    Asteroids??

    Can you say "Caloris Basin"? Dig deep enough and there's likely a layer of pure gold down there. (Zone refining on an epic scale, courtesy of a rock that can't navigate.) It's not...

    Total US deaths now at about 120,000(*). About the same number as Japanese immediately killed at Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    The two groups are not incompatible, thus you can't use the membership in one to disprove membership in the other..[/QUOTE] What on earth are you talking about? No one was doing any such...

    My son fought in Afghanistan in a region where every male had a firearm. Every male was a potential enemy. Their orders were to not fire unless they were fired upon. Those soldiers were paid...

    Bullshit. You're ready and prepared to shoot at him the instant he chooses to escalate. Made clear by the gun pointed at his center mass. If he shoots, you shoot. If he doesn't, no one shoots....

    Yes and no--I agree with this perception but it's their educational system, not genetics. They value conformity a lot more than we do.

    You don't need to be able to stand up to use a gun.[/QUOTE] Thank you, Captain Obvious. Do you have a relevant point?[/QUOTE]

    The point is not being able to stand up doesn't make him not a threat.
  20. But pointing a gun at the bad guys is a...

    yes, right. because 'cops don't shoot FIRST' is exactly the same thing as 'cops never EVER point the gun at bad guys.'[/QUOTE]

    But pointing a gun at the bad guys is a meaningless gesture.

    Obviously he didn't desire a shootout with the cops. Few criminals do. The question is what he will choose when faced with only two bad choices--being captured or shooting it out. Shooting it out...
  22. And you don't know he didn't. He tried very hard...

    You don't know that. [/quote]

    And you don't know he didn't. He tried very hard to keep his gun, that suggests he would use it.



    The protesters are motivated by those who get their position...

    The guy could barely stand up - that is according to the involved officers. Which suggest he was not going to escape unless the officers were complete incompetents.

    We don't know if he...

    So....we lose all the people who will only cop if they get an unchallenged right to shoot first if it even looks like they hold a gun?

    I am okay with that. The kid shot for holding a toy would...

    No, you will have to clear that with laughing dog.

    You see, you haven't linked to a source. Also, just because most women who are murdered are killed by current or ex intimate male partners,...
