Lesson learned, don't flash your GPU in Windows, do it via boot drive. Just spent all evening fixing a bricked GPU -.-

    Are you sure that's not just because Yuli isn't making 1000 threads a day any more?

    I'm pretty sure that there used to be more than 1-2 new threads per day, even discounting mindless linkthreads.

    They have many studies that prove the efficacy both in humans and animals. The principle is easy; younger blood cells, faster regeneration and healing.

    It's not the blood cells themselves... it's the proteins/hormones that older blood is depleted of.

Why am I not surprised. You know loopkill? Yeah, turns out the Nazis did it too. Which is funny, because I said in the book that loopkill is too evil for Nazis. Nope, they actually did it.

    I don't think CC deniers are the real issue. The problem is economics, changing the status quo costs money & even those who are fully in agreement on CC aren't willing to put up the money.

    The status quo is currently funding the oil, gas and coal industries with trillions of dollars in subsidies each year. Subsidies for renewables are orders of magnitude less! Imagine all that money being poured into clean tech instead. Economics aren't the problem – cretinous ignorance, evil, greed and vested interests are. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/may/18/fossil-fuel-companies-getting-10m-a-minute-in-subsidies-says-imf

    After the 2020s, the oil will run out, renewables will become more profitable, and the big energy companies will rush to extoll the virtues of solar and fusion instead.

The more I read about Randian Objectivism the more I come to absolutely despise it. Who in their right mind would be a fan of that horrible woman?

    Also, her fan club is unusually circle-jerky. Read this exchange by two of her fans:
    -"erm an objectivist world would be closest thing to utopia"
    -"^Exactly."
    ...
    -"And we REALLY shouldn't be basing policy off a site like 9gag."
    -"^^^^^^^^^^^^^"

    Notice how all they do is agree with each other, neither strengthening each others' assertions nor contributing anything to the message.

    I don't understand, is this a joke?

    Also re: Lunix comment, there is some research to suggest it will cause a net gain in agricultural land although yields will be lower.

    Re: global warming making your house warmer. One theory is that the net effect of climate change on the gulf stream would impact N. America and N. Europe in such a way that they would become substantially colder. In fact most weather becomes more extreme so hurricanes bombarding the SE USA will become much worse in all likelihood

    I worded that wrong: Near future as in 2060s, 2080s - when effects from climate change become more visible.

    Netherlands could actually be one of the countries to best deal with rising water levels, despite being close to sea level. They already have lots of infrastructure to deal with flooding.

    Same with the fiscally conservative party here. They criticized a stimulus package that they voted for and have already doubled tge defecit in one year.

    My guess is it's the washing that is causing people to catch this. Would be cool if we can get to a point where all meat is safe to eat raw even if not desirable from a taste or digestion standpoint.

    camph. bacter is pretty much everywhere. It's almost like dust, it's around us and we mostly just don't notice it. It only takes a single bacteria getting into a container of food that's been cooked and put in the fridge before it's fullly cooled down to provide a petridish to spread over the whole food and fill it with the toxins it produces. even reheating doesn't get rid of the toxins.
