Positive Ebola Test In Second Texas Health Worker

pastafazou Re:Russians have a few drugs starting trails (463 comments)

Are these russian drugs Psilocybin based, or are they Lysergic acid dyethylamide based? If it's the first, the trails will be shorter, and the strength of other hallucinatory experiences won't be as intense.

End of an Era: After a 30 Year Run, IBM Drops Support For Lotus 1-2-3

pastafazou Re:And yet IBM soldiers on... (156 comments)

Their revenue has stayed the same, but their profits and profit margin have consistently increased. Revenue growth is meaningless without also looking at how that growth affected profits. Lots of growth with little gain is a bad trend.

Aral Sea Basin Almost Completely Dry

pastafazou Re:Stop blaming the Soviets (151 comments)

Why do you declare it a fuckup? They diverted the water, and now have farmland where before they had desert. That was their plan. If you're telling me that they wanted farmland in the desert as well as the Aral Sea to stay the same, then yes it was a fuckup. But I don't think that was the intention.

pastafazou Prediction... (127 comments)

everyone you've read about so far dies. New characters are introduced. They die too. Children of new characters emerge, and die. Lots more dying, followed by a bit more dying.

US Strikes ISIL Targets In Syria

pastafazou Poor Analogy (478 comments)

Considering the many thousands that have been killed by ISIS, including thousands of Iraqi soldiers, I don't think a "fruit fly" is an apt comparison. And ISIS has access to anti-air weaponry too.

US Strikes ISIL Targets In Syria

pastafazou Yes they do (478 comments)

The Raptor has three internal weapons bays: a large bay on the bottom of the fuselage, and two smaller bays on the sides of the fuselage, aft of the engine intakes.[140] It can carry six medium range missiles in the center bay and one short–range missile in each side bay;[141] Four of the medium range missiles can be replaced with two bomb racks that can each carry one medium-size or four smaller bombs.

Extent of Antarctic Sea Ice Reaches Record Levels

pastafazou Re:It's getting hotter still! (635 comments)

This comment isn't a troll. Claiming the area covered is bigger but the volume is much much lower needs a citation. All I've been able to find are "theories" on why the ice is growing in Antarctica.

Arctic sea ice is rebounding too. So Antarctic sea ice is at record levels, and Arctic sea ice has moved well away from it's record low, FYI.

UN Study Shows Record-High Increases For Atmospheric CO2 In 2013

pastafazou Re:Talking Point (427 comments)

That's not moving goalposts. If you ask for the data, you expect you'll get the original recordings, not a bunch of values that have been adjusted arbitrarily at someone's whim without an explanation of those adjustments and a means of extracting the original values.

Gun Control: If it saves just one child....

pastafazou pastafazou writes  |  about a year and a half ago

pastafazou (648001) writes "A boy in Washington, DC was being viciously mauled by three unleashed pit bulls when a neighbor came to his rescue. Running into his house to fetch his handgun, the neighbor opened fire on the dogs. A nearby police officer, responding to the sound of gunfire, arrived on the scene and assisted in shooting the dogs. The boy, saved by the actions of the gun-sporting neighbor, is recovering in hospital with severe wounds. The neighbor, meanwhile may be facing charges."
