They're better than they were. They're actually not bad and pretty much the only thing I can stand at Wendy's. They used to have these deli type sandwiches too but they didn't last long because WHO ORDERS SOMETHING THAT ISNT FRIED AND FATTY AT WENDYS RIGHT?
Asteroid discovery 1980-2010

Cena, you are an idiot.

A one minute search in google would show you why nuking an asteroid is a terrible idea. To sum up, you have to deflect the asteroid, not break it apart. If you break it apart, it has the same energy and will have the same amount of impact.

Second, even if we did need nukes to break them apart, we'd only really need to use it once every few hundred years, if even that. I hardly think reducing our stockpile from 30,000 weapons over the globe to a few hundred or less would prevent us from using them on asteroids.

Yes, an asteroid at least a mile wide or larger is going to strike Earth in the future. However, the odds are that it won't happen for another 100,000 to 10,000,000 years. Instead of a pie in the sky hope of tearing the asteroid apart, our best chances of survival are letting it hit and colonizing Mars and the Moon - which hopefully will happen in the next 250 to 500 years if we make it that long.

Cena, way to troll and turn a nice thread about asteroids and research into a pot-shot at Obama.

Incredibly well done animation - although it is misleading. If the dots were truly to scale they wouldn't be visible as a pixel. So, it makes you think there's this solid wall of asteroids in the Asteroid belt (akin to something like the Empire Strikes Back) but it's actually mostly empty. In fact, if you were to send a few thousand deep space probes through it, none of them would hit anything.

The total mass of the Asteroid belt is 4% of the Moon:

Also, half of that mass is accounted for by only four objects - Ceres, 4 Vesta, 2 Pallas and 10 Hygiea.

Well nobody would recognize Beethoven's 2nd Symphony - much less a bastardization of it.
What would Darwin say to today's creationists?
08/23/10, 10:08

Oh and baleen, they may be creationists and have established fields in science, but they don't use creationism to further science - and most of them end up talking out of both sides of their mouth. They'll go to church and say one thing, then get in the lab and when they're forced to be honest do something completely different. This is why they can publish actual peer-reviewed science but why they have to write popular press books and write blogs to get their creationist viewpoint across.

Most of the creationists are far away from biology anyway - and the ones that even try to do geology or paleontology have rarely, if ever, contributed to science.

Now I don't feel so bad for ranting in the burka video. You tried to make me seem irrational, baleen, and here you are equating people who support evolution with people who are trying to kill Palestine.

What's next, throwing in people who support gravity with satan worshipers?

Also, baleen,

http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/tobyyoung/100047659/the-burka-ban-damian-green-is-wrong/

This op-ed pretty much sums up my opinion.

Since you are a woman, let's suppose you lived in Iran. You would be forced to marry someone at 14. You would be forced to accept him as a husband. It doesn't matter if he rapes you or abuses you. You become property of the husband.

Not only that, but the largest supporter of this ban, at least in Britain, are MUSLIM WOMEN.

That ought to tell you something.

baleen,

Why don't you go and talk to women who were oppressed by Islam and then went away from the religion (and subsequently their families, their social status - if any at all - etc.) and were blacklisted because they spoke out? Or worse, stoned, or raped, or executed?

Oh yeah, you can't talk to the dead. But, I have talked to women who have converted away from Islam and you'd be surprised by the thoughts that are hidden away and repressed due to abject fear and sexism.

It's kind of strange how the people in the west often criticize Mormonism or even Scientology for doing less, yet when people 10,000 or more km away do even worse in the name of religion we think nothing of it. True, stoning, torture, murder in the name of the church, etc. has happened in Christianity, but not sanctioned by the church for a very long time. Yet, there are sects of Islam which are perfectly fine with rape or torture or stoning if a man or Imam does it in the name of Allah.

I'm not advocating unfair treatment of people who are from the middle east. What I'm advocating is a bias against the behavior of sexist and irrational culture for what it is when it concerns the oppression of other people.

I suppose human rights violations are less important than 'freedom of religious expression'.

If they want to wear a burka or fancy hat or a fez or whatever, sure, that's your choice. But, when you talk to 99% of these women, it is not their choice. Society, men, and religious leaders made that choice for them and they are too afraid and fearful to go otherwise.

Thankfully modern Islam is moving away from it and away from sexism - but it's still grossly full of inequality between the sexes. A lot of Christian religions are like that as well - including the Catholic church.

Wander...

Huh?

If the points are completely valid, then should you not do something so that society doesn't have to deal with it? By your logic, all of the logical and rational reasons that women can not be ownership or property of a man should be ignored because a man still has a right to own a woman or many women.

My points for not liking it are based on the fact that the burka is a symbol not of 'religious expression' but the ownership of women by men as part of the religion.

But I guess women as property is perfectly okay since it's religious expression and all.

Some Muslim women do not agree with a burka and they refuse to wear it. Other Muslim women have never even considered the choice of not wearing one. Most of the time when a woman wears a burka, she wears it out of fear or pressure by Muslim leaders (who are all male) that Allah will punish them severely if they do not wear one.

In some places in the middle east, women are required to wear a head covering in some public places even if they are not Islam. For example, Rachel Maddow had to wear a head covering in downtown Kabul on TRMS about a month ago. Some mosques force women to wear them before entering, also.

The men in fundamentalist Islam can talk, hold power, express their opinions, hit women, and in extreme cases can have multiple wives. The women hold no power over their own lives and when given the chance to take off the head covering they fall back on the excuse that "I'm not afraid of what men will do, I am afraid of what Allah will do" (and I know this from talking to many women who have been forced to wear head coverings or who are Islam, or who were formerly Islam.

I personally don't view the burka as a symbol of religious freedom and expression. I view it as subservience and sexism. This is exactly how I feel about any religion that forces women to not hold power (Mormons) or wear head coverings (Pentacosts) or tries to create a great inequality between men and women.

There's a fine line between human rights violations and freedom of expression and religion.

Freedom of expression? The women wearing the burka's don't have freedom of speech nor freedom of expression - so shouldn't Amnesty International be siding against the idea of burka's instead of the right to wear one?

Imagine each garment cost $50. Some probably cost more, some less. I'd say it's a good conservative estimate. Multiply that by 50 garments and you get $2500.

I don't think he bought these on sale, so an additional $500 for any overage seems reasonable.

$3000 worth of clothes. I don't even think I have $1500 worth of clothes and I have a larger closet than he does and it's halfway full - and I'm at least 10 or 12 years older than this guy so I've had more time to collect.

One of those garments could have rented a rug doctor to clean that stain in his floor, too.

If you ever have time to buy/download the soundtrack - do it. The film score was done by James Horner (Willow, The Wrath of Kahn, Braveheart, A Beautiful Mind, etc.)
