Re: Troll-size the writing/looking thingy! (if you look, yo

Misquotation : Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them. The first half of this quotation is a misquotation from Thoreau's Walden: “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation. From the desperat...

Re: What-If 0108: "Expensive Shoebox"

With whom? Physicists had already come up with the idea of a chain reaction some time before the Manhattan Project started. It's a really cool story, and it might not even be online.

Re: What-If 0108: "Expensive Shoebox"

Like, if the very existence of nuclear fission were a classified secret, say, and some physicist independently came up with the theory that it was possible, would he get a visit from some TLA?

I'm not sure what you are asking. but currently, whatever is changing numbers to "lots" is breaking urls that contain the numbers. For example http://data.giss.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/gistemp/nmaps.cgi?sat=4&sst=3&type=trends&mean_gen=0102&year1=1996&year2=2015&base1=1951&...

Re: Mod Madnethth 2015 Issues Thread

The madness has changed words in urls, breaking them. In others words, the urls do not work, because the madness software caused them to become different than they were, leading to 404 error messages.

Re: 1379: "4.5 Degrees"

We're all well aware that 1998 was an exceptionally warm year. If you go back to the trend starting in 1995 the cooling you're talking about suddenly gets a lot less noticeable and widespread. Of course, and if you start with 1986, and look at a thirty year period , it's even less. None of that cha...

The cool colors show where the trend is cooling , the warm colors show where the trend is warming. For some people, the cooling trend for winters, is all they have ever known. While global warming is being hammered into their little heads, the winters got colder. It's ironic. As Cohen noted, the co...
