Who's To Blame For Rules That Block Tesla Sales In Most US States?

Crashmarik Re:Turf (135 comments)

Mod the above up,
I learned auto repair working on a Model A that had been donated to my highschool. You practically didn't need a manual to do the work.
I used to work on my Vette (1978) with nothing but a good set of wrenches.
Now it's forget about it.
At the rate things are going you won't be able to change the oil in a car without taking it to a dealer.

Linking Drought and Climate Change: Difficult To Do

Crashmarik Re:We should expect fewer droughts from warming (200 comments)

Are we talking about climate or weather here ?
Or if warming is bad it's climate if it's good it's weather ?

The premise is that warming is bad for civilization and will destroy it. Well about the only instance I can think of warming maybe causing a problem for civilization is Anasazi and no one is really certain what happened there. Cooling has wrought hell for civilizations just look at middle east and Africa.

Crashmarik Re:Restored some faith (200 comments)

I'll go out on a limb and say the college hipsters are either on vacation or busy getting ready for finals so slashdot is deprived of their input.

Linking Drought and Climate Change: Difficult To Do

Crashmarik Re:We should expect fewer droughts from warming (200 comments)

Oh and don't forget how warm periods crushed medieval civilization and the Roman Empire.

Or is it now settled science that those warm periods didn't exist ?

Or that the Roman Empire and Pre Black Death Europe didn't exist ?

Crashmarik Re:We should expect fewer droughts from warming (200 comments)

No No No a warmer world means doom. We all die with warming, everyone is under water and being pelted with a hurricane.. Al Gore got the Nobel for making certain everyone understood.

I mean if a warmer world was better for civilization we wouldn't need carbon credits and taxes, there would be no reasoning for the enlightened to go around being annoying and telling everyone else what they have to do, because "SAVE THE PLANET MAN"

Crashmarik Re:What the hell is wrong with Millennials?! (465 comments)

I always forget - sarcasm should be labelled ['sarcasm'] for the hard of thinking..

You obviously weren't alive at the time. There were people that welcomed the idea of a nuclear showdown with the Soviet Union.

Apparent Islamic Terrorism Strikes Sydney

Crashmarik Re:Check your math. (874 comments)

The US has a secular government, and US government actions aren't in support of the Christian religion. Your claim is nonsense.

It isn't nonsense if you understand his world view.

In his world President Bush is the incarnation of the antichrist and and staged the 9/11 attacks so he could wage war on the peaceful and progressive Saddam Hussein.

Once you understand his worldview you realize the correct term isn't nonsense, it's ravings.

Apparent Islamic Terrorism Strikes Sydney

Crashmarik Re:Muslims? (874 comments)

Well, Bush Jr. considered their unjust war on the middle east a crusade, and he also considered it as a preemptive DEFENSIVE move. It seems that you guys has a history of using those terms loosely :)

Troll. flamebait, or just plain stupid ? Gotta go with flamebait, to be followed with and endless stream of pavlovian programmed responses.
