Why the Revolution Will Not Be Tweeted

NEOtaku17 Re:Activism is dead (305 comments)

There is no more "left activism" because the left has already won. The left already controls the universities, newspapers, and government. The left is now the establishment.

Voters In Many States Must Register By October 6

NEOtaku17 Democracy = Opium of the Masses (182 comments)

Come back when you learn basic statistics. Your individual vote is practically worthless. The odds of being the deciding vote in a national election isn't any better than winning the lottery. Even if your candidate wins by one vote, there still is a good chance that the president will act differently than promised and enact policy that would harm you anyway! Trying to determine policy by voting is like trying to make money by playing the lottery. You could do a hell of a lot better by using your time and energy doing something that actually has a good chance of making a difference. Voting gives you a good feeling that your voice is being heard, but how can you be heard when 100,000,000 other people are all talking at once? Democracy feels good but with a country as big as the U.S. you can take the outcome of elections as given.

Blogger Finds Y2K Bug in NASA Climate Data

NEOtaku17 NEOtaku17 writes  |  more than 7 years ago

NEOtaku17 (679902) writes "NASA has now silently released corrected figures, and the changes are truly astounding. The warmest year on record is now 1934. 1998 (long trumpeted by the media as record-breaking) moves to second place. 1921 takes third. In fact, 5 of the 10 warmest years on record now all occur before World War II. This news has huge ramifications on the current state of climate science and government policy on combating global warming. Perhaps we have more time to correct our negative impact on the planet than we thought."
