Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo Crashes

halivar Re:Not a good week... (296 comments)

Because if spaceflight becomes common place for the rich, it will inevitably become common place for the poor (just as air flight did). The boundries of man expands, and we can begin to look further.

Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo Crashes

halivar Re:Not a good week... (296 comments)

There was a time when only the rich flew and the rest of us schmucks were still sailing in boats. Your assertion is inconsistent with history.

Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo Crashes

halivar Re:Not a good week... (296 comments)

This sounds callous, but progress is not without required risk. I hope Virgin Galactic continues the good work of private spaceflight that will be essential to continued advances in space exploration.

Statisticians Study Who Was Helped Most By Obamacare

halivar Re:From Today's New York Times (600 comments)

This right here is some willful ignorance. The law was not written by congress. Few in congress even read it. The administration peddled it through several House committees, but in the end, they gave up and just voted on the Senate version (which many Democratic senators admitted they had not read, either).

No, no, if it sounds like something, it's homophonic.

Stan Lee Media and Disney Battle For Ownership of Marvel Characters

halivar Skimpiest article ever (150 comments)

No details, nothing about transfer of copyrights, proof of who is successor of interest, nothing. I RTFA and found the summary is pretty much all there is to know. Anyone got a more informative link?

Researchers At Brown University Shattered a Quantum Wave Function

halivar Re:umm.. what? (149 comments)

Well, I'm hardly a physicist, but it reads like they cut Schrodinger's box in half, pulled a dead kitty out of one and a live kitty out of the other. Is this incorrect?

Pope Francis Declares Evolution and Big Bang Theory Are Right

halivar Re:Nothing like slashdot (653 comments)

The Crazy Mrs. Doddard's here are known by name, and you know when they're going to show up. Most people are content to down-mod and move on. Contrary opinions are often (-1, Troll) with nary a response, or, if someone does, they get modded (-1, something-something) just for touching it. There is absolutely groupthink on Slashdot, and there has been for the 15 years I've been here. Hell, I first learned the term in the context of its application to Slashdot.

Pope Francis Declares Evolution and Big Bang Theory Are Right

halivar Re:Only YEC denies it (653 comments)

Interestingly enough, nothing you posted has anything to do with the gospel of Christ. Being right about evolution or the big-bang is of no spiritual benefit to you whatsoever.

Pope Francis Declares Evolution and Big Bang Theory Are Right

halivar Re:Only YEC denies it (653 comments)

Sure, but having God's representative on Earth make the claim is meant to carry a little more weight than the concensus view of a bunch of Cardinals and Bishops, isn't it?

Pope Francis Declares Evolution and Big Bang Theory Are Right

halivar Re:Only YEC denies it (653 comments)

I would like to tut-tut your church's backward thinking, except it sounds like they do more for their fellow man than I do. TBH, it doesn't sound too tragic; I wish I was less into right-thinking and more into right-doing.

Pope Francis Declares Evolution and Big Bang Theory Are Right

halivar Re:Only YEC denies it (653 comments)

It's not about being allowed; it's about not being a bore. I have vigorous and enthusiastic debates with religious friends, including about evolution, but I know my audience. I only argue with friends and random strangers on the internet.
