  1. Our detection of electron and other subatomic particles is theory laden. What we perceive is the output of a device which taken together with a theory or model that asserts the output is from an electron (or other subatomic particle) constitutes a "detection" of the particle. If we didn't have a theory we would not be talking about electrons and other non-perceivable objects.
  2. The melting of the Arctic sea ice means the Northwest Passage will stay open long which mean more sea commerces can use this shorter route. It is good news for trade and business.
  3. Right now we have no way of knowing for finding out. Anything done now is speculation and supposition.
  4. At means Natenyahu is leading blind Donald around by a leash.
  5. Someone left that cake out in the rain. I don't know if I can take it, it took so long to bake it and I'll never have the recipe again... oh no......
  6. There is a subliminal anti-semitism wired into our culture. Mostly it is out of site, but it is always there. One might think the Right Wingers would be most likely to manifest this attitude, but not so. Anit-semitism is alive and ill in the camp of the liberal progressives. And I think know why. Jews have overcome the disadvantages of their marginal position in our society primarily on their own initiative and effort. In short, they did not need the government to manage the problem. The fact that Jews have succeeded without government largess and assistance is proof positive that the the assumption government is needed to overcome racism and bigotry is a canard. And this pisses the Liberal Progressives off mightily.

  8. Do I detect a note of sarcasm and mockery?
  9. If the start of the next Little Ice Age happens around 2100 the Alarmists will claim it is due to AGW.
  10. The politicians will ALWAYS deem it inecessary
