ACLU Sues DHS Over Unlawful Searches and Detention

TinFoilMan Re:Why, oh why. (460 comments)

Why mod Troll?

The parent made some good points and sparked a lovely amount of good comment.

Sometimes I think modders have their heads way up their arses and can't see the trees for the forest. They did the same thing last night to someone who posted a decent post and generated 185 responses.

ACLU Sues DHS Over Unlawful Searches and Detention

TinFoilMan Re:Why, oh why. - Indeed. (460 comments)

Unless you have an account with a bank, they won't do it.

the way the banks are, cash gets an IMMEDIATE credit to your account whereas a check, regardless of who issues it, means at least a ten day hold on the funds.

A. Every grocery store in America issues money orders.
B. Cashier's checks are typically deposited immediately. Typically Money Orders are deposited after they post.
C. There are a number of banks that will give you a cashier's check even without a back account at that bank.
D. With a business account, who cares if it takes ten days to clear, that's the cost of doing business.

Carnegie Researchers Say Geotech Can't Cure Ocean Acidification

TinFoilMan My Turn. (248 comments)

Perhaps I have this incorrectly and someone can fix it for me, but now that I've got my tin hat on, please answer this:

IF the earth gets warmer, then that would create more water vapor - becoming clouds - and clouds prevent reflect IR (heat), thus cooling the earth back down?

TinFoilMan Re:Beginning of the end? (376 comments)

December 21st, 2012?

I think you may be on to something. If the moon is affected by this and it changes a single thing, which changes another single thing, and so on, Perhaps the Mayans were correct that on that date the world will change as we know it.
