oodaloop Re:How is that supposed to work? (93 comments)

If all that's keeping your salary high is that people haven't gotten minimal training off a website, maybe your salary is too high.

oodaloop Sorry, no (80 comments)

How Our Botched Understanding of "Science" Ruins Everything

oodaloop Botched understanding of science? (737 comments)

The only person with a botched understanding of science is the author. Science is the means by which we know what is true, and most definitely cover origins of things.

oodaloop Re:Great news (269 comments)

And yet the phenotypic analysis found strong correlations. The genes may be different in many ways, but the difference in IQ between races is still there.

oodaloop Re:Great news (269 comments)

I'm skeptical. One chapter about race hardly makes it a "pile of racist crap". Go read it for real.

I just don't automatically trust anything said.

Are you as sceptical about what creationist christians say, or you selectively rational?

If Tesla Can Run Its Gigafactory On 100% Renewables, Why Can't Others?

oodaloop Re:Not just Reno (444 comments)

So some simple maths means that if every domestic house installed a 3kw system, and govt funded a scheme to distribute that energy where it's needed, then we can all live on free energy

I see you're using a strange definition of the word "free". I would have said prohibitively expensive.

Link Between Salt and High Blood Pressure 'Overstated'

oodaloop Re:Water Retention? (291 comments)

Yeah, I thought this was well documented. Societies with very low salt intake have low blood pressure, like tribes in the Amazon. Societies with high salt intake have high blood pressure (an area of Japan comes to mind). Lowering an individual's salt intake lowers blood pressure. Now, the salt you put on your food constitutes something like 10% of total salt intake. You need to avoid foods with high salt levels, and these days that's almost everything.

Cuba Calculates Cost of 54yr US Embargo At $1.1 Trillion

oodaloop Re:Is the embargo really affecting them? (538 comments)

And you can somehow tell how much better off they'd be with the embargo lifted by walking around and looking at things? How did you come by this superpower?

Cuba Calculates Cost of 54yr US Embargo At $1.1 Trillion

oodaloop Re:$1.1 Trillion over 54 years... (538 comments)

it'd become so utterly dependent on the US that it'd simply have no choice but to bow down to US wishes and culture.

So we should open trade with Cuba so they become a free and open vassal state to the US?
