Elon Musk: We Must Put a Million People On Mars To Safeguard Humanity

itzly Re:Cargo (472 comments)

Even if there was life on Mars (and Mars was definitely not full of life) , you should know that not every possible form of life produces coal and oil. Even on Earth, formation and preservation of oil and coal happened only in a few places/times with just the right circumstances.

itzly Re:uhh (472 comments)

That's what he says, at least. Of course, men in those positions have usually made it a habit to twist the truth to their advantage.

Elon Musk: We Must Put a Million People On Mars To Safeguard Humanity

itzly Re:More Efficient (472 comments)

The most efficient solution is to forget about the whole plan. It's not like the dead people on Earth have gained anything by having somebody else walk on Mars.

Scientists Seen As Competent But Not Trusted By Americans

itzly Re:Catch 22 (451 comments)

do you really want anyone deciding what you need to read about

Of course. Only a very small sliver of the population has an interest in getting a subscription to Nature and Science, and can actually understand the articles. The majority of the people would prefer if somebody else reads the magazines for them, and only tells them the parts that may interest them, in dumbed down language they can understand.

Mobile Phone Use Soon To Be Allowed On European Flights

itzly Re: Restrictions (95 comments)

Engines, while loud, produce a monotonous sound are much easier ignored. And also, on a plane, most people aren't going to stay in the 65-70 dB range. Many of them will start yelling in their phone, trying to overpower the engine noise.

Mobile Phone Use Soon To Be Allowed On European Flights

itzly Re:I'd pay for a non-phone flight (95 comments)

Possibly, but knowing airlines, they'll charge outrageous prices, so this will still stop most people from endless yapping. Airlines have had in-seat phones for as long as I can remember, and in my dozens of flights, I have not once seen anybody actually use them.
