Oh, ok, nothing to worry about; the US is comfortably in it's normal range of yearly mass shootings. Was worried for a minute that things were out of control.
U.S. President Joe Biden on Friday mourned the victims of the shooting at an event in Las Vegas and said, "This is not normal and we can't let it become normal."
Um, it's pretty normal, Joe. According to the gun violence archive, this is approximately the 631st mass shooting (four or more shot or killed excluding the shooter) this year.

The existence of XX or XY only refers to a set of chromosomes which will eventually directly and indirectly control numerous genes thereon and on other chromosomes to express themselves at different levels during the many stages of development of an individual. There is so much variation in those genes and how and where and when they do and do not work independently, and that's where the variation in all characteristics, including identity are produced.
XX can not become XY.

The new obesity drugs tend to suppress one's desire to eat. Many find they don't want to eat heavy meals while using Wegovy and Ozempic.
Finally I will be able to eat McDonald's and be fit at the same time!

A few comments from Trump while in New Hampshire. Someone want to translate this into something that shouldn't make us all worry about Trump's mental state
1) Upon realizing a spelling similarity, “You know how you spell us, right? U.S. I just picked that up. Has anyone ever thought of that before? I'm reading and said us. You know, when you think about it, us, equals U.S. If we think of something genius, they will never say it.”
2) Talking to Republican's, ""You don't have to vote, don't worry about voting. The voting, we got plenty of votes."
3) Upon being asked about Sidney Powel and whether his conversations with her would or wouldn't be covered by client-attorney privilege, "No. We did nothing wrong. This is all Biden… I was never indicted. You practically never heard the word."

Adapting to the stress of desk work implies a response to selection. But, not sure whether there is a negative genetic correlation between fecundity and tolerance to surviving desk work.
The drop in testosterone could also be genetic drift as weaker men are able to survive doing desk work.

FFS, Great that you haven't changed. I have nothing to apologise for. I asked you for a citation and you provided one that didn't back up your claim. Boom.
I provided one that indicates the general decline in testosterone is not a new trend. That study indicates a decline from 1920 to 1960 and other studies indicate further declines since then, as well as the expected effects due to decreases in testosterone levels, such as lower sperm counts and decreases in musculoskeletal strength.

Your own citation states "According to research, men’s testosterone levels have dropped at least 20% in the last 20 years with more and more younger men suffering the effects of low testosterone." Still waiting for the 50% citation.
Danish study (Rigshospitalet Clinic for Growth and Reproduction) showed a 14% drop in men born in the 1960s compared to men born in the 1920s.
Here’s one though from the last decades which back up everything I state almost daily n this site regarding excercise and nutrition

Blacklabel's blub is what passes for "Republican logic" today.
Clearly having other countries view the US positively and as being reliable is in the interests of the US.....duh.
but the non Americans don’t care about Americans. they want a president that defers to their own country’s interests.
a president that gives them free stuff and defers to their problems as priority over what Americans want. Like Biden.
so a popular US president in “the world” is quite bad for the USA.

And the same is true for all of your predictions of Trump retaking the throne, all of which have proven to be absolutely nothing but noise.
No, so lock him up and then you can brag, until then, you have absolutely nothing but noise.

Bass and a few of his cohorts have made predictions that Trump would be reinstalled as President after the 2020 election throughout various means, as well as prognosticating other Q-Anon dreams which have not come true. Sounding a lot like religious sycophants screaming "the world will end on __" followed by silence or excuses when it doesn't.
Good thing is that Bass is consistent and betting the opposite of what he deems will happen is money in the bank.
You said on this site there was no way the DOJ would ever indict him. You said he would never stand trial. You said he’d never be convicted. You didn’t specify a jurisdiction. You said none of these things would happen.
Now you admit that he has been indicted and will stand trial because objective reality is slapping you in the face.
Furthermore, you leave open the possibility of conviction where you ruled it out before.
Bad news for you, these charges carry a mandatory prison sentence. If convicted (he will be), he is going to prison. No pardon. No dodging.
Are you unaware that your previous comments are easily confirmed?

Don't just say a word. Make your case showing conclusively that Biden has done things which disqualify him from running for POTUS. This is what the cases against Trump are going to demonstrate. So, provide evidence to support your whataboutism deflection.
Quite the back track from “He’ll never be indicted/tried/convicted.”
None, zero back tracking, the Dems do what they feel they need to do, they can’t run on their policies, so this is the best thing they can come up with.
And their morals and judgment as well

According to Biogen, Lecanemab appears to delay the progression of Alzheimer's by 2.5 - 3.1 years.
One problem is that there are other senile dementias, such as LATE, caused by defects in different genes (producing different faulty proteins) and Lecanemab would have absolutely no effect on these senile dementias.
However, Alzheimer's accounts for between 50-75% of senile dementia cases, so hopefully some patients and their families can get some relief.

Extremely unnatural and against the laws of nature-opposed!
"Laws of nature"..."The natural state of things"
No such stases have ever existed permanently. Any system or population reaches a state of meta-stability and eventually becomes knocked to a new state by energetic influx/outflux or mutation/selection pressures, respectively.
There are laws of nature and as we get smarter (hopefully), those will even become more bendable.

Paul....went through the same large B lymphoma about 6 years ago. 6 rounds of RCHOP. Side effects were really not that bad at all....got lucky that shape of my head is reasonable. Complete remission. Getting blood work check-ups every 4-6 months and an imaging fluid infusion CT-scan once a year (kinda like those actually). Best of luck to you.

The beer machine down the street from my place does not have such an age-verification feature. And don't try to change the argument.
Do you actually think kids are rocking up to the register at the local Welcia thinking "I bet the new morning after pill tastes just like Papico"?
Is your real agenda "Won't somebody think of the children" or you are just anti-abortion?

Kids can buy alcohol from vending machines here
Actually they can’t. The machines that sell beer require a special card you must buy at the convenience store.
So you think children having access to alcohol is ok as well?

Better than being the random toothless ivermectin conspiracy theorist.

Based....you didn't read what I wrote. I never said they were proof of anything. They are both decent review articles of current findings culled from numerous molecular studies. They are useful in terms of understanding the molecular data by which the various origin hypotheses are debated.

Just pointing your finger and saying "Like you trust the (insert target group here)" is worth nothing.
Posting two articles and calling it "proof," as you have done -- even when the articles themselves admit that the precise causes of the COVID outbreak are not fully clear -- is worth just as much.

Those are books which make up generally first year graduate studies in evolution, ecology and population genetics. So much for being on the same level.An understanding of the concepts presented in those books along with the ability to distinguish artefacts (GXE interaction, maternal effects, unintended selection pressures, lack of replication, etc) which confound results obtained through experimentation is essential before you could look at data or primary publications and make a reasonable determination of the robustness of the results.
