"World's Most Relaxing Music" Composed

ca111a not music (239 comments)

This is white noise. Or generated sound. I wouldn't call it "music" if it's composed using science instead of talent and inspiration...

Not sure towing would work... Germany is more compact/urban, they have real public transportation and use it (unlike us here in the US).

2010 Election Results Are In

ca111a Re:Obama should just call for elections (1530 comments)

Three questions:

  1. Did the premiums not go up last year (or the year before last)?
  2. If "Yes" on the previous - did the premiums go up faster this year then before?
  3. Do you really expect a reform of such proportion to have an immediate effect?

Sitting Down Too Long Is Bad Even If You Exercise

ca111a Re:My excuse (376 comments)

I biked to work couple times, but then decided not to. The problem is - you share the road with *cars*. So, unless there is a dedicated bike trail or a separate bike lane, it is simply too dangerous. First: the drivers do not want to share the road with a slow moving object - not only bikes, but even seniors for example. Fortunately for seniors, they are usually inside very big and somewhat safe cars. Bicyclists are not. Second: chances of staying intact in an accident for a bicyclist are much lower compared to those of a car driver/passenger. Now, let's combine the first and the second... And I haven't even started with bad weather, visibility issues or intentional desire to hurt a bicyclist (ugly, but possible).

Is fracking good or bad

ca111a ca111a writes  |  more than 4 years ago

ca111a (1078961) writes "CNN Money has an article with EPA's Director of Science Policy answering some questions about hydro-fracturing. EPA is planning to conduct a two-year study of this issue, but right now it's practically unregulated. Considering how even a far more familiar and well regulated technologies can sometimes create an enormous disaster, I feel quite uncomfortable hearing that EPA only now starting to look at the issue and acting as if they know nothing about it. The process itself "has been used for over 60 years in more than one million wells". And the way they call the process only adds more worry..."
