Posted in: Greenland fallout: Trump scolds Denmark over rejection See in context

Well, it is kinda absurd - many people thought Trump was just joking, that we are just getting punked. And then turns out he's being serious

But what's really absurd is predicating a state visit on the issue of Greenland (particularly after saying that the Greenland issue has little to do on the state visit). Predicating the whole state visit simply on Greenland - who does that

That's really absurd, especially when already a lot of work on both sides preparing to the state visit as a royal guest, then being stood up and not showing up to a party being thrown specifically for you

Trump has been flip-flopping on the issues lately - from stringent gun background checks, to payroll tax cuts, to the Greenland issue

He'd say one thing, then the next thing he'd say the opposite

Ya can't take his word for it

Posted in: Marvel films to lose Spider-Man as Sony deal breaks down: reports See in context

This can go both ways

Non-MCU Spider-Man movies were hit-or-miss - the first 2 were good, afterwards not. So stand-alone Spider-Man may suck again, especially after Tom Holland leaves after his 1 or 2 remaining movies left in his contract.

But then again, non-MCU Spider-Man can escape from MCU Spider-Man being Iron Man-lite (what with all the Stark gadgets he's been using). Plus, MCU Spider-Man's two main connections to MCU are now gone (Tony Stark is dead; Captain America Steve Rogers is retired). And with the next several MCU movies focusing on outside of Earth this time around, that's no longer Spider-Man's friendly neighborhood we're familiar with.

So who knows if Sony can tell a decent Spider-Man story that's not connected to the MCU. But all bets are off if god forbid they reboot Spider-Man into an origin story again, lol

Posted in: Japan to build ¥67.5 bil underground neutrino detector in Gifu Pref See in context

Most of the universe are made up of "dark" matter and "dark" energy that we don't know anything about (that's why they're called "dark" - because we're in the dark about it)

If we can find out more about these "dark" stuff - who knows, it may lead to things like totally recyclable matter, or perpetually renewable energy, faster-than-light-speed travel we can easily go to other planets and moons), endless food replicators for everybody, etc,

The study of neutrinos may lead to that since neutrinos almost never reacts with known matter and energy. It may be an in-between linking the matter and energy that we know and the dark matter and dark energy that we don't know.

Why not design a wheelchair that can walk up steps? Wouldn't it be cheaper and easier, especially with modern tech, to modify the disabled mode of transport than than to modify the building?

There is actually a technology competition called Cybathlon that works to improve assistive technology including wheelchairs that could climb up stairs. But if you think it's easier to make the technology or for the disabled to use the wheelchairs or to afford it, check out the videos and decide:

More netting also has other consequences - like kids getting impromptu autographs or playing catch with players (the more netting would reduce that), fans can't interfere with the foul ball where there's netting (no more Steve Bartman incidents), players can no longer dive into the seats trying to catch foul balls (no more Derek Jeter dive heroics), etc.

Why hack when ya can just search? Who needs Snowden!

Posted in: Climate deniers get more media play than scientists: study See in context

CO2 only makes up 400 parts per million there's no way that's a threat

And ozone only comprises 0.000004% of the atmosphere, even much less than the 0.0360% CO2

http://www.physicalgeography.net/fundamentals/7a.html

But oh, what's 0.000004% ozone gonna do? It's so small percentage - surely there's no way the loss of ozone in the atmosphere is a threat. Heheh, get ready for SPF 1,000,000

It's not the percentage that matters - it's what the substances do

Posted in: Iran tanker departs after Gibraltar rejects U.S. demand See in context

Seems that while the Iran Republican Guard is classified as a terrorist organization by the US, the EU does not. And therefore, Gibraltar cannot hold on to the ship under the US argument

Well, as long as the ship doesn't go to Syria, since that is still a violation under EU sanctions

That was a lot of wasted though going all the way around Africa transporting a million tons of oil, just to end up sailing back to Iran

Also shows that Iran's reasoning for detaining the Stena is bogus, and that Stena didn't violate any maritime rules

Posted in: Obamas' first film charts life in U.S. factory under Chinese bosses See in context

Ironically, it's American owners who close factories in America to move production to places like China, while a Chinese owner reopens the factory in America

Huh? So they bought the rights to the film and sold them to Netflix.

They're releasing it on Netflix, not sold it to Netflix

As the article states:

The former first couple acquired "American Factory" at January's Sundance Festival, and will release it on Netflix

The US should be paying back its debt when the going's good

But the US keeps borrowing no matter when it's recession or not

When it's bad, it makes sense to borrow to jumpstart the economy. But what's the excuse when it's good?
