Weight of Responsbility

By | March 18, 2019

Death of the calorie. The article is not that bad, as such articles go, but the diet advice that most people get truly is. But to clear one thing up, factually speaking, if you eat less than you burn you will lose weight. I know because I did it so don’t tell me anything else.… Read More »

Following this literal 🙈🙉🙊 advice is great for helping Rush Limbaugh get away with promoting the lie that this white supremecist was actually a leftwing eco-fascist https://t.co/2AaDQWHa5l — Nils Gilman (@nils_gilman) March 16, 2019 I’ve been completely astounded lately by the liberal “censor everything, report on nothing” approach to the Christchurch massacre.

Stats and Avoidance

How to know if you’re booked on a 737 MAX 8. Pertinent info is at the bottom of the article. I am not very good at math, so take this as you will, but going by the in-service time and crash rate vs. the in-service time and crash rate of other similar jets, your chance… Read More »

Clashing

By | March 11, 2019

“We now have the tools to grasp the collision in all of its destructive complexity: what is unbearable is that economic and social inequalities have reverted to the preindustrial ‘feudal’ pattern but that we, the people, have not.
