Quote of the Day

Actually, two quotes:

“I would also point out that CO2, carbon dioxide, is not a pollutant in any normal definition of the term. … I am creating it as I talk to you. It’s in your Coca-Cola, you’re Dr. Pepper, your Perrier water. It is necessary for human life. It is odorless, colorless, tasteless, does not cause cancer, does not cause asthma.”

“If you think greenhouse gases are bad, life couldn’t exist without greenhouse gases. … So, there is a, there is a climate theory — and it’s a theory, it’s not a fact, it’s never been proven — that increasing concentrations of CO2 in the upper atmosphere somehow interact to trap more heat than the atmosphere would otherwise.”

– Representative Joe Barton (R-TX)

so's iocaine powder. Does CO2 dissolve instantly in water too? Cause that shit'll kill you.

I'm sorry, but that's a theory, not a fact.

Hey, evolution is a theory and you don't see people quibbling over it ... oh, wait...
May. 20th, 2009 11:36 pm (UTC)
I believe in the law, not theory. Natural selection? That's a law. Evolution? That's a theory.

Let me know if you need to explain in further detail. As a middle-aged white guy, I have a lot of information I need to share with the world internet.

could you explain race relations to me?
May. 20th, 2009 11:45 pm (UTC)
Oh, come on! It's when you have "relations" with a person of another race.

See? It's the wisdom of the internet.

damn, middle-aged white guys really do know the answer to everything!

Race relations are what happens in the infield at the Kentucky Derby or the Indianapolis 500. Nine months later, you have a little souvenir of the event.

Sadly, race relations at the Kentucky Derby last a disappointing 2 minutes. Relations at the Indy 500 last a pleasing (if tiring!) 3 hours.

So is gravitation
Gravitation, this is gravitation,
Gravitation, this is how it's done:
First you take a theory,
Then fall down and skin your knee.
Is it real?
Just you feel!

Re: So is gravitation
The pain in that knee? If I'm not feeling it, it's theoretical.

    Oh, yeah, excellent point.

    Oh yeah. Like the lawyers who get obvious really venal criminals off because it makes their success rate look good. But those are not the ones I am referring to in meaning well. These guys are mixed…

    This reminds me of the time my wife was injured and the insurance guy handling her case did everything possible to deny and stall the payment. We had to put her surgery on a credit card because this…

    The creepiest part is that some of them are actually well meaning.

    Yeah. It's godawful what people will do when they have authority and no fear about using it.
