@8 and for fun, ask any republican you know what they think of that. Sadly, their answer will be some form of "it doesn't matter", followed by a specious attack on Obama, or Pelosi, or Reid. Goddamn hypocrites.

@7 it's still early in the morning and you're already wrong. Re-read the bold text in the article, please.

I want to know how many other details converge here. Is the dad an NRA member? A Christian, esp the evangelical flavor? Did the daughter sign a purity pledge? I.e. how many tiny seemingly-not significant details went awry here...?

@3 Okay, since you want to be contrary... They are searching for one particular grain of salt in SF. Better?
Mar 13 Dr_Awesome commented on The Morning News: New Theories on Missing Plane, Two Dead at SXSW.
@2 The theory is that the antenna system was compromised. The transponder was not switched off, it was unable to transmit or receive.

Whether that theory is true or not is a good question. Others have posted links to articles debunking it.
Mar 13 Dr_Awesome commented on Did the Malaysian Airlines Plane Fly Four Hours After Disappearing?.
@Rob! I read an article late last night that explained that the engine performance data is only uploaded at certain intervals, not constantly or near-constantly.

But it does allude to a record of a transmission from the engine data computers timecoded hours after the jet disappeared from radar/flight control. And the data indicate the engines were operating normally.

I don't recall where I read it. Somewhere on Reddit but it was late and I was tired.

@1 It's happened at least once before. In 1999 a charter jet flying golfer Payne Stewart lost cabin pressure mid-flight. Stewart and everyone else aboard lost consciousness and the jet flew on for several hours.

@f.u. None of us see your stupid self proposing any sort of positive changes that would in any way decrease negligent firearm deaths.

So you are being useless and obtuse and we're calling you on your bullshit.

Dan, by highlighting negligent firearm deaths, is serving to keep awareness high. MucIt is exactly how gay rights have steadily improved within the past generation. Keeping awareness raised creates change.

But go on trolling and posting your stupid shit even though it serves no purpose. I guess it keeps you from playing in the street or something.
Mar 12 Dr_Awesome commented on Two-Year-Old Second Amendments Himself to Death.
@13 Well it certainly is not, per the pro-gun people, anything which ought to be used to craft better safety regulations, or require liability insurance, or enact stricter penalties for the mis-use and abuse of firearms.

So there you go, f.u. One more stupid tragedy that'll be immediately swept under the rug by you and your ilk.

Since no meaningful improvement will come of this all that's left is to be bleakly ironic and we have, again, you and your ilk to thank for that. So go fuck yourself.

@1
social monogamy has served so great a cultural purpose over human history...


Just curious if you could amplify that. Not calling you wrong, just curious to see what you think the benefits of monogamy are.
