  1. I take it you did not learn a damn thing...
  2. ...or as they say as they enter the distorted space near a black hole: "mean aether!"
  3. In the context of "compressed to such a high degree in the central singularity"? I can only imagine.
  4. Agree. It really isn't a requirement anyway, is it? I mean if there was some force that prevented compression beyond what we already know, how would that affect any external effects we might be able to observe from black holes?

    What does "In the public interest" mean?

    Ask not what your country can do for you...ask what you can do for those in power

    U.S. Democratic Primary

    I don't know if he has a real chance but this guy certainly has interesting ideas and speaks them well.

    Dangerous politic climate

    Zapatos can correct me, but it seems he has demonstrated that was not his intention, but to give you an example of something you claimed you could not recall while implying it is unlikely to exist.

    He did not. In good faith you should see that.

    Where did he claim an equivalency?

    Seems I struck a nerve...

    U.S. Democratic Primary

    Many Democrats seem to automatically assume it must be true, since historically it is unlikely for accusations to be made otherwise. I'll wait to hear the evidence and what may or not back it up. If nothing backs it up I won't necessarily disbelieve the accusation, but I will not consider it in my judgement of Biden. (not that my opinion might matter to him)

    The Border Wall or Fence

    So...the Mexicans should build a wall...and make Americans pay for it! (just kidding)

    The Border Wall or Fence

    Perhaps they could hire some temporary workers from Mexico.

    Mueller indictments (split from Collusion with Russia)

    They don't know what's in it. What I'm suggesting is there might be something that reasonably should not be disclosed.

    Mueller indictments (split from Collusion with Russia)

    Equivalent of. Can you explain the rational behind the law and guidelines as to why the report won't be released verbatim if not unfairness? No. They are asking for the complete report. Are they not?

    Mueller indictments (split from Collusion with Russia)

    Some allegations they may not care that much about. It may have come about during investigating something else. So a judgement call is required...is it really worth suggesting John Cuthber may have done such and such along with so and so without clear evidence...especially if, at worst, what John Cuthbert did isn't even indictable?

    Mueller indictments (split from Collusion with Russia)

    Clearly it doesn't. Trump claims it does. That doesn't mean I do. I did say exoneration of collusion with the Russian government was implied by the pointing out that he was not exonerated of obstruction, but I believe that was a mistake to offer that characterization in that manner. Trump is a somewhat obnoxious human being to put it mildly. That is not a reason to release all the information in the report unredacted. There are obvious legal reasons, and I think guidelines for special council not to IMO (I am hardly a legal expert, so grain of salt). It could be the equivalent of allowing libel if it's not indictable or worthy of it. Essentially nuisance allegations, most of which would be directed at someone other than Trump.

    Mueller indictments (split from Collusion with Russia)

    Isn't there information in it that lacks reasonable collaboration? Why should a bunch of allegations considered unprovable be made public?

    Mueller indictments (split from Collusion with Russia)

    My point was that it was specifically stated that Trump was not exonerated of obstruction of justice. This doesn't mean he was exonerated of collusion with the Russian Government but it does imply that, correctly or not, and intentionally or not. The statement seemed odd in any case. If they don't have enough evidence to indict, or recommend indictment, are they supposed to make that type of comment?
  21. J.C.MacSwell

    Mueller indictments (split from Collusion with Russia)

    There is an implication in this that it does exonerate him of collusion with the Russian government.

    Propellant less space engine

    It will. If...and only if...what accelerates the wheel has an equal downward force. You are assuming (incorrectly) a symmetric (pure torque) input about a "balanced" wheel...and (correctly) seeing an asymmetric output...giving you a net force you do not get For a non accelerating wheel see Swansont's hamster.

    I wasn't sure I used the right icon...but rest assured I was at least somewhat commensurate with your plight. ...or should I say blight
