    Happy Birthday Zip!

    Happy Birthday, Zip!
  2. Chat works fairly well now, except that the chat room icon (top-right) always says that it is empty, regardless of how many people are in it.
  3. If they think humans are the problem, then they should set the example.
  4. Thinking in fundamentals is essential to assessing a problem, issue, or any such thing that comes to our attention. So, how does one learn to think in fundamentals? Does it merely happen with practice? Do you have a certain set of questions that you ask yourself before starting to assess the problem, such as "what are the fundamentals of this?" Much appreciated.
  5. I have Mark Perry on my RSS feed, but I agree that most times he seems to have a head-in-the-sand optimism.

    James Cameron: "I believe in ecoterrorism." Is he joking? There are no "[laughs]" included in the text. I don't know much about Cameron. Should I be surprised, or is this not uncharacteristic of him?

    Existence exists.

    Ask yourself "what is 'existence'?" Existence is the collection of everything that exists. In that light, obviously, it exists. "Existing" is implicit in "existence". As for your analogy, life does not live. Life is a property of something that is living. Running does not run, either. Running is an action that an entity can take. A sufficient analogy would be to find X that X's (ie, is implicit in its nature).

    Oh dear. They may have murdered AGW

    They apparently actively edited Wikipedia to change public knowledge of AGW.
  11. Granted, but it's a great rebuttal video. I think he might have one on Chomsky's "The Corporation" too.
  12. Both by Lee Doran AKA "HowTheWorldWorks". Watch it now, thank me later.
  13. He turns 21 today, which means he's probably too drunk to read this clearly. But, happy birthday to our Christianity-hating, Punk-loving, neurotic member! (who made me write this)
