Did you guys see the Air Force showing off the 6,599 mph hypersonic sled? It moves so fast you can't even see it even in slow motion. O_o

    This puts into perspective how fast the ISS is traveling in orbit which is over 17,000 mph.

    That's really wild. Logistical and engineering problems aside I'd love to travel across the globe in under 2 hours. I know we'd have to accelerate gradually in order to not turn ourselves to goop but still, very cool.

Wow, President Trump cancelled a scheduled meeting with the Prime Minister of Denmark because she wouldn't discuss the sale of Greenland. Sounds like Trump was actually serious after all.

Someone says he or she found God. What does it even mean? How does one suppose God is found when no one knows what God looks like or what it is?

    ...they don't see these stories first hand and (2) when we're told about these stories, it's told through a literal and critical lens that says "this is the stupidity of the ancestors who thought water could be turned to wine", but don't realise how dumb they are for 'not getting the joke', or not comprehending the metaphors.

    I'll grant you that I am aware there are so many people who take the Bible literally. These people are the same as those I'm deriding because they *take the Bible literally*, only they are yay not nay. Too many people on the "nay" side however take the Bible literally and fail to actually try to derive a lesson, which may be useful for them, from this 2,000 year old piece of literature. Humans are just humans--Anglos, Mestizos, African, whathaveyou. Our predecessors were just...

    ...just people too, muddling through life, jotting down their lessons and trying to teach their little kids how to make do (due) with life. Religion is a culture framework within which a population learns and establishes shared rules so that they might work together without killing each other--which is how the previous 180,000 years occurred mind you. A little "God" ain't so bad all things considered. Especially when you realise that "God" is a metaphor in himself.

    I'm with Caltrek there. Also the complete misunderstanding of how tariffs work in the liberal media is constantly irritating. Yes, Trump isn't upfront about it, yes American businesses pay. If they don't want to pay they should buy domestic and stop complaining. It's not a bad thing for our own industry to provide for our own regions population.

A second earthquake hit Southern California with a magnitude of 7.1. It's five times bigger than Thursday's. I hope this doesn't start a cascade of earthquakes leading to the BIG ONE.

    I don't think this is the year of the BIG ONE, but I do believe the timeline has it right when it states it's going to happen sometime before 2037.

    They already have one with the Roadster which goes for 600 miles. He meant the mass production cars.

    they're just not right now in America specifically. In Isreal the right wing coalition just came to blows today to take an example.

    All political dispositions split and infight just as much as they unify given whatever conditions incline them.

    Chill. I completely agree that the liberal left has that tendency right now :)

    To be fair until recently what I consider the true left was also acting like that in America. The DSA is a multitendency success in the US. In no other political block will Stalinists be found working with anarchists than in the DSA to my knowledge. It's also utterly depressing that the anticapitalist left has mostly combined its efforts with DSA and is still so small.

Who knew having just a slightly larger prefrontal cortex and opposable thumbs would lead to the extinction of millions of species.

    I bet there have been extinctions from much more seemingly minor changes in a species. But they probably took much longer to happen.

    Like at some point some species of algae with higher/lower CO2 production/absorption evolves and this ends up starting an ice age half a million years later.
