  • I was on ICQ so early, that I had a 5-digit ID. I lost the login for it, and couldn't recover it last time I tried, because my e-mail address had changed... The last time I used an on-line instant messaging app, it was MSM Messenger... Good times…
  • Today's phrase of the day is: "willful ignorance". I sense that this phrase has become an over-riding theme in American politics.

  • Bills vision, happening today: http://fortune.com/2018/11/26/chinese-researchers-genetic-engineering-babies-crispr-hiv/
  • @Bill said: This is vitally important to the future of the species. For example, our genomes have been building up genetic load over the past few generations. Genetic load is the accumulation of many rare mutations, almost all of which are bad. I…

  • The radical views of so many of these people make me wonder what planet they came from. Common sense is out the window and the prejudices are off the scale.
  • @fenomas said: ... "Altered Carbon"... Criticisms aside; awesome show... I look forward to a second season.
  • Assuming a society not dissimilar to ours, I would guess the percentage to be very low (people in their 50s are much less often risk takers, as compared to their younger selves). Those that do are either idiots or desperate. If you're society and…
  • The way I heard it, it was all down to Wayne LaPierre and his take-over, but I suspect there are more shades of grey to the story.

  • The NRA has totally lost track of their mandate... They should be leading the charge for responsible, safe, gun ownership, including policies that keep guns out of the hands of people who should not have them... They have, instead, become partisa…

  • The entire country suffers from confirmation bias.
  • I bet these people just can't take all the winning they're doing, under the Trump administration: http://spectrumlocalnews.com/nys/buffalo/news/2018/11/01/bak-usa-buffalo-closing

  • @Clme said: I've got money that says we see a headline in the next week that says 'Florida Man sent mail bombs'. Not the headline, but the first line of the article: Federal authorities have arrested a man in Florida in connection with…

  • I remember it being a thing years ago, in reference to flushing unused medications... The idea that active medication ingredients being excreted by people are also contributing to an environmental problem is a newer problem to me.

  • Sometimes I think the phishing scammers aren't really trying... I never knew the Canada Revenue Agency operates out of Redmond, Washington.
