Massive irony: I got the twitter account because they never verified email addresses used to open accounts. I got a password reset and took the account that some annoying oik used my email address to open.

So basically they don't care about security, they just want peoples phone numbers because advertising revenue.

Well it depends on what you call secret. I don't think the gov't goes to the trouble of entering all of those codes back into some system and keeping a record of how people voted, that would be a massive and illegal conspiracy. (The secret ballot was eventually extended generally in the Ballot Act 1872)

And it's also possible in parts of the US "Sometimes the ballots themselves are numbered, making the vote trackable. This was ruled legal by Federal District Judge Christine Arguello, who ruled that the U.S. Constitution does not grant a right to a secret ballot.[24]"

"and there's more now that when that prediction was made." Very wrong

"Global temps haven't increased in sixteen plus years." WTF? Very wrong.

"Manmade global warming is bullshit." The science is very clear, again you are very wrong.

Personally I think the chances of mankind surviving a few hundred more years is less than 50/50, we've set the ball rolling to our own destruction and we'll be taking 95% of species with us. Mankind's biggest problem is over-population and unsustainable resource depletion.

Global warming deniers never can answer the following in any logical manner:
Is CO2 not a greenhouse gas? Is man not releasing very large amounts of CO2? What negates the effect of CO2 in the atmosphere as a greenhouse gas?
