The reporter is unqualified to report on this...He is unqualified to understand the material, present it, or give a conclusion.

how do you not see the irony of saying this right after doing the exact same thing.

Flat Earth Theory / Re: Why UA Violates the Equivalence Principle

You may as well be claiming that the proof of reptilian overlords is that our guardian angels are hiding their existence for our protection, and that this "makes complete sense" .. "once we understand what is occurring", as that would provide a similar level of a confused mess of theories.

An absolutely nonsensical comparison.

We have evidence to justify the theory of isostasy as a replacement for past arguments from incredulity that amount to little more than "mountains are big and made of rock so why dont they pull me towards them?"

Through detailed measurements and investigations we've learned just how inconsequential surficial features are compared to what's beneath us. (As a side note, mountains actually do have an impact on measurements of g at surface, it's just such a small component of the overall signal that it takes a precise gravimeter to register it. Small, but potentially important considerations in resource investigations -these were discussed in the thread I linked above)

A more appropriate analogy to isostatic theory would be comparing it to germ theory. It sounded ridiculous when it was first proposed... then we started looking at things under microscopes and all of a sudden things weren't so crazy after all!

Please explore the Wiki, it talks about that:

The mountains behave in the opposite way from what gravity predicts. The 'gravity' readings are negative rather than positive.

Incorrect. Isostasy and the gravity signal around mountain belts are completely compatible with gravity once you understand what is occurring in the subsurface and what has occurred in the geologic past.

As has been discussed:

Gravimeters and local variations in g:

I believe the real concern and follow up questions should be focused on the warmongering figures presented as translating into the reported "ICBM" as traveling over 32,000 mph!

I may have missed something, in which case my apologies, but where did the 32,000mph figure come from?
Do the math.

Using the figures you provided.
C'mon lackey, you have to show your work if you want full marks on your homework...

That's Dr. Disgusting hag to you, sir.

Could this be a new low point for the 447 pages in this thread?

The "vaccine" reprograms the mRNA in your cells to produce SPIKE PROTEINS , these toxic proteins will eventually kill you by stroke, blood clot, pulmonary embolism, respiratory illness or mad cow disease! That is how all the animal test subjects died!

Yes, let's all follow J-Man's lead, and trust the words of gateway pundit or just draw out own conclusions based on whatever else we feel like regarding complex medical and cellular biology topics! Medical experts are stupid!

It's actually a complex form of eugenics, where they're thinning the herd by eliminating those with weak health and other genetic deficiencies. The powers that be (not the puppet governments they have us elect) are developing a genetically superior human race  so that our future fighters in the upcoming alien conflicts will be more resilient and we wont have to worry as much about biological collateral damage, given that they will be much more technologically superior to us, we will be forced to defend ourselves using augmented biological weapons.

Theyve effectively catered an efficient us against them narrative throughout this plandemic so that eyes will be away from the real story.

Man, this thread went off the rails, after starting off the day with a pretty fair point.

Millenials are lazy because they dont all just become billionaires. That's how it works, because Bill gates and Mark Zuckerberg, and shark tank exist. Pull yourself up by your bootstraps, youngins, and go be a professional athlete or movie star!


Target a skill that is in rarity, build a resume, convince people that you are technically and professionally competent, pretend that you are teaching them something in an interview. Get a related professional certificate if you need a piece of paper for HR. Actually improve and add value to their company, or start your own company with those special skills you have accumulated, which I would expect a young talented person should be able to do competently and creatively by age 24.

Continue going to college, certainly, but it should ideally be for your own fun and education.

This is all around good advice, regardless of your field or interests.

I didn't have a problem in my youth. I went directly to skilled office jobs and I didn't wait until I had a postsecondary degree. My earnings ranged from 4 times the federal minimum wage at age 16 to 14 times the federal minimum wage at age 24, without any postsecondary credentials at that time whatsoever.

This part, based on my experience, and that of all the students I TA'd in university over a 7 year span, is extremely rare these days. Companies have gotten away with offering stagnant minimum wages, and the consistent push to get everyone to get a degree has led to a vast surplus of graduates compared to available jobs. It's a shit show of a trickle-down of recent grads forced to take entry level jobs to build their resume and (hopefully) allow them to stay out of their parents' basements after graduation.

I was lucky to make several dollars an hour over minimum wage throughout high school, working 25-30 hours a week during the school year and 36-40 during the summers between 2002-2006. I saved up 22k over that span, then I enrolled in university, and in a single day, over 15k was gone after writing three cheques: tuition, residence, meal plan, then heading to the library to spend a stupid amount on (used) textbooks.

I'm glad you were able to make money in your youth, and I agree your advice is absolutely still applicable today, but that kind of employment environment simply doesnt exist anymore.

I'm so curious how many hours per week you worked throughout your youth, at what wage(s) you were paid, and whether that allowed you to do things like pay tuition, buy a house/car shortly after etc.

That's a pretty good sales pitch though: "work for us! You'll get 50% off all the McRibsTM you want and if you're appendix blows up, you'll only be out 10 grand!"

Is McHealthcare better than Obamacare?

It was in bad taste, no doubt.  But also context.
The man was literally about to drive away at an event specifically setup for him to drive.  And someone wants to ask him about Israel.

But I maintain he shouldn't have said it and I also maintain that half of Trump's comments wouldn't have gotten nothing if he didn't double down everytime someone called him out on shit.

I agree with Honk, and you, to a degree. But just because Biden was at an event set up for him to test drive an American-made EV doesnt give him a free pass to just dodge questions on the (arguably?) most pressing current geopolitical issue.

Biden is absolutely getting an easier ride by the MSM. Part of that was handed to him, but part of it has been earned, by not being an unpleasant, egotistical jackass who refused to take responsibility for anything. I still dont like him, but his track record is much better than Donnie's. His feet should still be held to the flames though -accountability goes both ways.

Cant stand Brad Marchand (but that was a nice gesture signing the stick for the girl who was hurt pre-game in game 1).

Hate the Bruins. Love Captain Patrice. Love everything Bobby Orr.
