    Again, the plastics and CO2 output that go into making the windmills and maintaining them are absolute bloody peanuts compared with fossil fuel plants (including “clean gas”) and nuclear power plants. Nuclear plants require tons of toxic materials, labour hours (and all the driving to and from work), resource deliveries and the very power that…[Read more]

    Enco,

    Windmills produce more than 99% less CO2 emissions than fossil fuel based energy and create a LOT less polution than nuclear energy (this figure includes everything from fabrication, installation and running of the mills). That is green if green means anything. While everything you brought up are issues that aren’t trivial in terms of…[Read more]

    Windmills aren’t green?  Could you elaborate on that?

    LOL. So funny. Yeah my Grandmother was Scottish. Absolute force of nature. She was every cliché you could imagine. Super cheap (penny counter but splurged on the important things), tough, ironic humour, said the rain was good cause it made the grass green, didn’t tolerate complaining and would come down on you hard if you treated her poorly or…[Read more]

    Scottish people are extremely friendly…so it hasn’t been a tough transition. The weather on the other hand……..

  • So I’ve moved to Scotland. I have to say it’s been a bit of an adjustment living in an Anglo-Saxon country (you guys and a couple other websites have been my only outlet for the English speaking world for the last couple decades). It makes me a little dizzy speaking English with native speakers every day 🙂

    Anyhoo…one of the biggest benefits of…[Read more]

  • I’m hearing “free will of the gaps.”

    Nice try Unseen. I’m not biting. But nice try.

  • I see more books and philosophy journal articles arguing for free will than against it. 99% of philosophers arguing against free will is one of the most ludicrous statements I’ve heard about what philosophers believe in a long time. It is simply not true. It is one of the most contentious topics in philosophy at the moment. The claim:

    Free will…[Read more]

  • Honestly it just seems to preposterous that alien life would come visit and not hide themselves well…but do allow as you pointed out some shitty images…meanwhile making secret deals with super primitive puny human’s governments…with Donald Trump keeping his mouth shut about it after leaving office.

    If life evolved remotely similar to as it…[Read more]

  • What is at the root of all of this…do you suppose?

    Religion plays a notable role (let there be no doubt). Obviously this is the case when secular humanist societies show less (and only less) racism, homophobia, money worshipping, war aggression etc. But the ugly side of human nature plays as much of a role. All of our primate relatives are c…[Read more]

        • “Rape culture” is going to stick because it’s snappy and catchy.

          I am not longer surprised how effortlessly these conversations turn into the surreal and grotesque. Jesus leaping mother fucking shit-stick garbage dumpster crap-fest bonkers zheeeeesh!

        • Who wants to be thinking about rape the whole time?

          Uhhh…that’s the problem Simon. People want to ignore how serious of an issue it is. Calling it something less horrific is downplaying the problem. Let’s call gay bashers beating up stupid little faggots a “gender-norm disagreement rudeness” or the number of gun death massacres in America a…[Read more]

        • That is a logical interpretation; however, I believe they are advocating for men collectively segregating. Basically:

          Shake shake shake that sack!

        • What is not needed is harping on a “rape culture” without firmly defining terms.

          Harping on rape culture? Pointing out the scale and severity of rape culture is “harping on it”? Oh no. Poor rapists and sexual harassers. If only someone would clearly tell them that no means no, harassing people is vile and that confirming consent is the wise way…[Read more]

        • Ooh, that was a bit predictable.

          Well, a “free market” in anything is, by definition, between consenting rational beings and without initiated coercion or fraud, most especially initiated coercion or fraud by the State, which is only supposed to act as an agency of defense and an arbiter of disputes.

          And the operative term here is “co…

          I cannot be sure but I believe he was referring to things like: someone hitting on someone and not taking five NOs in a row for an answer. Or telling someone to fuck off and the person still bugging you. Or politely putting someone down and that person insulting you or even screaming at you. Or…[Read more]
