    Saw two rotweillers patrolling a fenced private dwelling in Chirundu, Zimbabwe. Probably not keen either, to let people of a certain persuasion in. But one thing is for sure, they would never get out without leaving soft tissue behind.

  5. Geriatric Mayfly

    Yes, predatory lezzos need to be included in the bad. They do exist.

    That one who fled an orthodox school in Melbourne for Israel. I think she’s either banged up or subject to extradition proceedings.

    The objective is to make the offense committed by the animal an offense committed by the owner and punishable as if the owner had bit you or as if the owner was creating the noise keeping you awake.
    You don’t “regulate” the animal you force the owner to train/handle the animal so that the owner does not get punished.

    CPAC or more correctly CuckPAC

    CNN analyst Van Jones credited the conservative movement with galvanizing support for criminal-justice reform during a Thursday appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference

    Appearing beside CPAC chairman Matt Schlapp, Jones discussed the sweeping criminal-justice-reform package passed in December, which aims to reduce mass incarceration and high recidivism rates by expanding the pool of inmates eligible to participate in early-release programs, among other policy changes.

    “The conservative movement in this country, unfortunately from my point of view, is now the leader on this issue of reform,” Jones said. “You look at Mississippi, a rock-ribbed, total conservative former jailer is now the governor. Governor Bryan cut the prison population and crime at the same time. [Governor Nathan] Deal in Georgia cut the prison population and crime at the same time. . . . What you’re seeing now is Republican governors being tough on the dollars. Tough on crime and shrinking the prison population.”

    Sure is. That’s because the hetero community finds it abhorrent.

    The gay community are far far more tolerant of a bit of right of passage bumming with the tweens.

    Sorry, Dover, to tell you what you might not want to hear – but you’re a Cat and what we want to hear above all else is the truth – but Bolta reported that Peter Westmore attended every day of both trials. Someone reported that. So they were open to the public.

    A despicable article in the Guardian attacks those who question the verdict, inter alia because they haven’t even heard the evidence! Wonderful. Conduct a trial under a gag order and then attack its critics as uninformed.

    I have yet to hear that any witness supported the complainant or contradicted the accused.

    Criminal causes celebres once upon a time were meat and drink to the left. Does anyone else remember Leith Ratten. Fatty Adams devoted at least one column to that case way back when.

    So it’s good to see Guy Rundle keeping the flame (and his principles) re the Pell case.

    I look forward to Cardinal Pell’s thanksgiving Mass when he’s finally cleared. I’d fly to Rome for that.

    As promised, from the report, Is Catholic clergy sex abuse related to homosexual priests?, I mentioned yesterday:

    Executive Summary
    This report compares previously unexamined measures of the share of homosexual Catholic priests and the incidence and victim gender of minor sex abuse by Catholic priests from 1950 to 2001 to see if the these matters are related. New data from the 2018 Pennsylvania grand jury report are also examined.
    Key points:
    1. Clergy sexual abuse is still a problem. Since peaking 35 years ago, it has declined much less than commonly thought. The decline is consistent with an overall drop in sexual assault in American society.
    2. Since 2002 abuse has been rising amid signs of complacency by Church leaders, and today is comparable to the early 1970s.
    3. The share of homosexual men in the priesthood rose from twice that of the general population in the 1950s to eight times the general population in the 1980s. This trend was strongly correlated with increasing child sex abuse.
    4. A quarter of priests ordained in the late 1960s report the existence of a homosexual subculture in their seminary, rising to over half of priests ordained in the 1980s. This trend was also strongly correlated with increasing child sex abuse.
    5. Four out of five victims over age 7 were boys; only one in five were girls. Ease of access to boys relative to girls accounts for about one fifth of this disparity. The number of homosexual priests accounts for the remaining four fifths.
    6. Estimates from these findings predict that, had the proportion of homosexual priests remained at the 1950s level, at least 12,000 fewer children [85% fewer], mostly boys, would have suffered abuse.

  25. None

    Decent gay people don’t go to the Mardi Gras. I find it as repugnant as the rest of us. Consider to that if Pearl had really exposed himself like the people at the Mardi Gras do in front of children he’d be executed by now.

  26. dover_beach

    Thank you!

  27. Vlad, if Peter Westmore is a journalist, and apparently he is, then that doesn’t confound the assertion that the general public could not attend

    The Guardian confirmed that eight journalists attended the trials.

    I doubt Cardinal Pell went without personal supporters either.

  28. Frank

    The mardi gras used to be about not bashing gays and all that. These days it is just another state sanctioned counter culture event on the tourist calendar.

  29. Leigh Lowe

    5. Four out of five victims over age 7 were boys; only one in five were girls. Ease of access to boys relative to girls accounts for about one fifth of this disparity. The number of homosexual priests accounts for the remaining four fifths.

    That is telling.
    The overwhelming percentage of victims in the Catholic church in Australia are also boys, but there is a remarkable lack of curiosity as to why.
    This study also attempts to modulate for the greater exposure of boys (altar servers, all boy schools), but still shows a skewed result.

  30. Don’t tell me that gay Mardi gras is good clean fun and suitable for people of all ages.

    And

    I’m be very surprised if only gays were beaten black and blue by members of your
    organisation.

    Yes, I was hoping to ask areff that, notafan. And Lysander too.

  32. Leigh Lowe

    Decent gay people don’t go to the Mardi Gras.

    I remember one year Boy George was on the commentary team, and described it as being in danger of creating a “gay ghetto”.

    “On Wednesday, Canadian court ordered a 14-year-old girl receive testosterone injections without parental consent. The court declared that if her parents referred to her using female pronouns or use her birth name, they would be guilty of violence.”

    The war against the family continues.

  34. And the question should be are gays more likely to have sex with underage children, whether pre or post pubescent.

    Of course heterosexuals will have committed far more crimes overall, because there are far more of them.

    I’ve seen this argument played out before, on a US blog and someone whipped out some crime statistics.

    Was the public allowed to attend both Pell cases, my good Sir? And do you know if the case was listed? Oh, and was Westmore attending the case as a journalist or part of Pell’s entourage or as member of public? Cheers.

    My gay friends and family members do not have sex with underage boys.

    Would you leave a young boy alone with them without any concerns?

    The number of women who give gay male friends the flick once they have children seems to be very high.

    Quite rightly they sense the inherent danger to their offspring.

  44. areff

    Dover: Yes and no.

    The committal hearing was closed to the public at the start, when “victims” were testifying, then opened to all and any comers who could squeeze in. I only attended the one day, when Milligan was being helped through her evidence by the magistrate while Richter steamed, seethed and looked like he wanted to tear his hair out in frustration at the many obstacles the bench was putting his path.

    The subsequent trial was open to any member of the public who (a) knew it was on and (b) could find the courtroom — minus a couple of episodes, as I understand it, when the court was cleared and the matter proceeded in camera.

    What fascinates me is that the committal referred only some cases to trial, tossing out others. One of those that went up was the Eureka Pool allegations which, as we saw, were subsequently chucked for lack of evidence. We can conclude Magistrate Wallingford’s standards for proceeding were painfully low.

  45. DrBeauGan

    I have had some adverts for ubereats featuring Boy George. I emailed ubereats to tell them they put me off the whole idea of using the organisation.

    Ubereats replied to tell me they’d stop sending me adverts. And has.

    The human cost in deformities though has been high, and I can see your anger over that. I am angry too

    The best thing is to put legs on your anger and buy stuff from the institutions set up to help these people.

    I came home with some lovely items made by severely handicapped people. It obviously doesn’t make things right, but it puts much needed cash into the system, and bolsters pride in work.

    calli you are a good, smart and accomplished woman – that you mention things made by people who are disabled and need the support brings me to mention that for the past 7 years there has been an unrelenting battle been valiantly fought by and unfunded family organisation representing workers with disabilities who work in supported employment and their supportive families.

    There has been an implacable campaign by funded advocates who purport to represent the very people whose jobs and places of employment they intend to close down.

    Every media outlet and every funded organisation resolutely refuses to interview or acknowledge the need for a continuum of employment opportunities – because open employment, is not for everyone, especially people with moderate to very severe intellectual disability, open employment, with all its vagaries such as bullying and intimidation of which we endlessly hear on a daily basis can be unfriendly and daunting even for those who have no disabilities. The worst of this is I suspect the bureaucrats are in on the act.

  47. areff

    Dover: on the other questions I draw a blank. A swine with no pearls, alas.

  48. Old Lefty

    Of course Pell’s friends attended the trial – they would have known about it from him and the defence team. But how did the Grauniad and GayBC know it was on? The VicPol-Miligan leak apparatus?

    I expect Fatty has a full-scale strike force running against the reports that the prison doctors want Pell moved to a more suitable location. Damn – they’ve outed the plans of the corrupt and politically prostituted abortion of a justice system in the Stalinist toilet.of Yarragrad to bump Pell off before his appeal against their corrupt witch trial can proceed!

  49. I have had some adverts for ubereats featuring Boy George. I emailed ubereats to tell them they put me off the whole idea of using the organisation.

    I’ve been put off it by videos of delivery boys unsealing the packages, hoeing into the tucker in an unhygienic fashion, then resealing the tucker bags & continuing with the delivery.

    Any truth to the story that video exists of delivery boys placing small amounts of spit, urine, or semen into ubereats bags before resealing them?

    Old Lefty: It would have been common knowledge in the courts press room. No surprise there. It was the public which was denied their right to see justice done.

    Just for interest: Victoria issued 400+ suppression orders last year; Westerm Australia issued two.

    You can get a suppression order in Victoria if your camary is moulting. Thank years of Labor stacking the bench with loyal hacks. For example, the magistrate who turned loose Jill Meargher’s killer was formerly an ambulance chasing personal injury lawyer working with Bendigo Trades Hall.

    The one-term Bail You/Nap Time “conservative” government did nothing to cleanse the bench and, indeed, continued appointing friends of the wukkas.

    Did the prosecution use the old rape case trick and squeeze the 35 year old “victim” into his St Kevs uniform?

    I want to carry a handheld cattle prod to let them know to piss off, but they’re illegal.

    Have been attacked twice in as many months. First time, an extremely vicious something-or-other mutt ran straight for me and then got behind me. I decided not to flinch in the slightest and after an uncomfortable 50 metres, it gave up. I saw the imbecile owner sitting in a car outside a house. Most likely explanation is that it got out when she was leaving and became ultra-aggressive because she – a fat slob, by the way – was in the vicinity. She then drove past me with not a word of apology. Second incident: rushed by vicious mongrel and bitten on the heel. I f-cking hate suburban dog owners. They are total morons, like their dogs. I would gladly support a bylaw to ban dogs in city limits altogether.

    The Mardi Gras Parade is the finale of the program. Over 300,000 people line the 1.7km long parade route to watch the 8500 participants march, dance and ride their way past.

    Counting both sides of the route, that’s 3400 metres. Lets be very generous and assume three spectators per lineal metre. 10,200 spectators in the front row. To get over 300,000 the crowd on both sides of the route has to be 30 deep.

    Every year it’s nothing like that but every year our credulous cocksucking media swallow and propagate the lie.

    Notorious Valley nightclub owner John Hannay dead at 74
    Matt Condon, The Courier-Mail
    March 2, 2019 12:39pm
    Subscriber only

    NOTORIOUS Queensland businessman and entertainment impresario John Hannay died in Brisbane on Friday night, taking with him some of the State’s darkest criminal secrets to the grave.

    Hannay, 74, had for years been suffering health complications and was largely confined to a wheelchair. He passed away on Friday evening at about 8pm.

    It is believed Hannay died in the Fortitude Valley gay nightclub, The Beat, which he had owned and presided over for decades.

    “Some people will remember John as the bad, bad, bad, ugly, and a little bit of good, but there was a lot of goodness in him and a lot of us wouldn’t be where we are today without John’s kindness,” said one close friend.

    During the 1960s and 70s, Hannay managed bands, nightclubs, bars and restaurants, and had a reputation for not paying artists and entertainers.

    During late 1972 he was the manager of the Whiskey Au Go Go nightclub in St Pauls Terrace in Fortitude Valley, before he was sacked amid allegations of theft and fraud.

    Shortly after his sacking he was badly beaten in a Valley alleyway as part of a series of reprisals for allegedly stealing tens of thousands of dollars from the Whiskey.

    Then on March 8, 1973, just months after the beating, the Whiskey was torched, killing 15 innocent people. It was up to that point Australia’s worst mass murder.

    Two criminals, John Andrew Stuart and James Finch, were charged with the firebombing and jailed for life, but the rumour persisted that there were others behind the deadly fire, and that Hannay may have been involved.

    Homosexuals are a significant minority and still a minority after more than 20 years of increasingly demanding and visually disturbing propagandising.
    I know quite a few homosexuals within the professional sphere.
    Some hoist their colours up the mast by choosing to specialise in homosexuals and their attendant problems.
    Others play it straight effectively and maintain the confidence of their colleagues.
    I have seen the behaviour of some of these types of homosexuals away from the working environment, and they are all to my knowledge swishy girly boy or hairy teddies, and all of them are offensive to me with some of their banter and behaviours, with added disappointment for the homosexuals that I in other respects think are sound.
    I am also distressed for the families and historical victims of HIV/ AIDS, predominately haemophiliacs whose only fault was to require blood products which were contaminated. Homosexuals predominately and to a lesser extent intravenous drug users introduced the virus into the blood supply system.
    I am distressed that this shameful piece of history was wiped from being discussed and that no redress specific to the cause of the deaths has been publicly declared.
    It was piss poor and gave the green light to the appalling behaviour of many homosexuals.
    I have ranted about this before, and will continue to whenever the freak show that is tittilating the couch potatoes annually rolls around.

    The subsequent trial was open to any member of the public who (a) knew it was on and (b) could find the courtroom — minus a couple of episodes, as I understand it, when the court was cleared and the matter proceeded in camera.

    Earth’s interior is sucking ocean water exceeding the amount it gives back, says a study

    It was well known that the earth drags sea water at trenches but a seismic study reveals that the amount of water dragged is about three times more than previously thought. The phenomenon has major implications for the global water cycle.

    Researchers like Craig O’Neill postulate the oceans have been completely recycled through the mantle about 6 times. Part of this process is the recycling of CO2 and is in fact what keeps CO2 levels remarkably stable and at levels which are a function of temperature. In fact there exists a negative feedback to increasing temperature and CO2 levels:

    For a negative feedback to exist, either sources or sinks of CO2 to the atmosphere must be influenced by atmospheric CO2 content. Silicate rock weathering (and subsequent carbonate mineral sedimentation) consumes atmospheric CO2 and can be shown to increase with increasing temperature and atmospheric CO2 content. Enhanced atmospheric CO2 concentration, through the “CO2-greenhouse effect,” would tend to warm the land and increase the hydrologic cycle with more water contacting silicate minerals. Both of these processes would function as a negative feedback stabilizing atmospheric CO2 concentration through accelerated silicate rock-weathering.

    There are other benefits to this process. One is the process that occurs within the earth, where fossilized CO2 and water are converted by heat and iron into natural gas and more complex hydrocarbons.
    The biggest nonsense in science is that natural gas is created from the decomposed bodies of animals, and thus must be “rare” and thus must be expensive.

    Natural gas is created by plate tectonics and the reduction of limestone by iron and heat in the presence of water. All of which are abundant within the earth. Limestone is the accumulated CO2 captured by the oceans.

    By burning natural gas, humans are simply completing the cycle that would be completed naturally in the absence of humans. Over time the natural gas leaks to the surface, where it is consumed by microbes and converted back to CO2, where it is captured by the oceans and eventually turned into limestone.

    This limestone is subducted by plate tectonics along with ocean water and converted by iron and heat back into natural gas. It is an endless cycle so long as the earth’s core remains molten.

    A similar process for oil is also theorised.

    People who want to ban fossils are really the most stupid people alive.

    But an examination of American popular culture, above all of its films–who can fail to see the homosexual influence on Looking for Mr. Goodbar or American Gigolo?–demonstrates how s3xual mores are being homos3xualized. Both sadomasochism and child/adult s3x, for example, are largely conceived of in a gay context, though they are fundamentally neither homos3xual nor heteros3xual issues. Among gay women and men there is considerable experimentation aimed at discovering forms of relationships that could reconcile our needs for both security and independence better than the existing models. Such experiments are of considerable relevance to nonhomos3xuals.

    Subduction (Wiki)

    The subducting basalt and sediment are normally rich in hydrous minerals and clays. Additionally, large quantities of water are introduced into cracks and fractures created as the subducting slab bends downward.[6] During the transition from basalt to eclogite, these hydrous materials break down, producing copious quantities of water, which at such great pressure and temperature exists as a supercritical fluid. The supercritical water, which is hot and more buoyant than the surrounding rock, rises into the overlying mantle where it lowers the pressure in (and thus the melting temperature of) the mantle rock to the point of actual melting, generating magma. The magmas, in turn, rise (and become labeled diapirs) because they are less dense than the rocks of the mantle. The mantle-derived magmas (which are basaltic in composition) can continue to rise, ultimately to Earth’s surface, resulting in a volcanic eruption. The chemical composition of the erupting lava depends upon the degree to which the mantle-derived basalt interacts with (melts) Earth’s crust and/or undergoes fractional crystallization.

    Cronkite, you post a theory which sounds implausible to anyone with an IQ higher than 3. If the relatively carbon rich seawater enters the trenches, what magical process is in the trenches stripping the seawater of c02? Can it be shown and evidenced? Can the water estimate rise entering the trenches also be proven? Lastly, how do we know the additional c02 , whether created naturally as you’ve argued shambolically in the past, or through human intervention is being cleared from the exiting seawater? Where’s the evidence of there capacity in the process to achieve this?

    There are so many wild dogs running around the Murchison and Mid West regions of WA that dozens of pastoralists have destocked and left their properties.

    The mongrels are fearless, especially in packs and very dangerous to both livestock and humans.

    Most of the dogs have wandered off from aboriginal communities and bred with mixed breed wild dingoes.

    The old style doggers who trap and shoot these vermin are a dying breed and dog numbers are skyrocketing, despite everyone living there with a rifle shooting them on sight.

    When #MeToo comes for a man you love

    What happens when the “believe-all-women” ethos collides with the urge to believe some men, particularly if those men are your loved ones? Perhaps a much needed return to respecting due process.

    A few days ago, Lisa Borders, the CEO of Time’s Up, a group affiliated with the #MeToo movement to fight for victims of sexual harassment and abuse, resigned from her position. The reason was startling. Her son, Garry “Dijon” Bowden Jr., had been accused of groping a woman during a “healing session” in Santa Monica.

    Borders didn’t step down as CEO because of embarrassment or proximity to someone accused. She stepped down because she is planning to vigorously defend her son, and this wouldn’t align well with the work of an organization that preaches zero tolerance for “discrimination, harassment or abuse.”

    Alan Dershowitz suggests curbing press access to hearing on Jeffrey Epstein s3x abuse

    A court hearing on whether to unseal sensitive documents involving the alleged sex trafficking of underage girls by Palm Beach multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein — and the possible involvement of his influential friends — will play out in a New York City courtroom next week.

    But it may happen behind closed doors, with the news media and public barred — at least in part.

    An attorney for lawyer Alan Dershowitz wrote a letter to the U.S. District Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on Tuesday, asking whether the media should be excluded from the proceeding because his oral arguments on behalf of his client could contain sensitive information that has been under seal.

    The appeals court had not responded to his concern as of Friday, but if the hearing is closed during his lawyer’s argument, it would represent the latest in a long history of successful efforts to keep details of Epstein’s sex crimes sealed.

    Dershowitz’s lawyer, Andrew G. Celli Jr., emphasized to the Herald that Dershowitz is not trying to ban the media from the proceeding; he is simply giving the court a heads up that his arguments could include information that has never been made public because it’s under seal.

    This fucking Gay Mardi Gras is a disgrace.
    Even when it first started, let alone now, as it’s descended into total depravity.

    There is no reason to celebrate a disorder.
    This disorder has been around as long as humans have existed, and I don’t believe gay people should be discriminated against, but there is no reason to celebrate a disorder.

    Plus there are many people of low to no moral standard who do get sucked in (pardon the pun) to the debauchery, as people like beta males and ugly women take the easy way out, and as we see today, people with absolutely nothing to offer the world, and nothing that makes them “special” grab hold of their debauchery as their special victim status, and who would have otherwise found a member of the opposite sex and had a decent life, maybe maturing and having children.

    The whole thing is childish and completely ruinous.

    Regarding the jurers on the P*ll trial.

    How did they convince themselves that he was guilty? Or – as is more likely – how did 12 individuals knowingly find an innocent man guilty? You would think that at least one of 12 people would have a bit of integrity and refuse to join the mob.

    Perhaps there was some evidence that we don’t know about? If so, someone should let us know because on the evidence that is public at the minute there is not one shred that proves his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. None.

    Maybe the judge was less ethical than we would expect in his direction to the jury, but the decision of the 12 jurers is theirs alone and should be condemned. They should be held responsible for it when their decision is eventually overturned.

    Explosive Julie Bishop interview: I would have beaten Bill Shorten

    Julie Bishop has declared she would have beaten Bill Shorten in the upcoming May federal election — had her colleagues made her Prime Minister in last year’s brutal leadership fight.

    In an explosive interview with Perth’s The Sunday Times, Ms Bishop said not only did she believe she would have beaten Mr Shorten, but Labor also feared she would defeat him.

    Shedding more light on last year’s infamous August 24 leadership party room meeting, Ms Bishop accused her colleagues of pulling their support for her at the 11th hour.

    Ms Bishop said before entering the meeting she had the support of at least 28 colleagues to become the nation’s new Prime Minister.

    Instead she got just 11 votes, which saw her knocked out in the first round of voting.

    Eventually, Mr Morrison defeated Mr Dutton 45 votes to 40 in the secret ballot to become PM.

    Lawyer X: Criminals’ appeals may spark special laws to stop releases
    MATT JOHNSTON, Sunday Herald Sun
    March 2, 2019 9:00pm
    Subscriber only

    The Andrews Government is considering new laws that would stop dangerous criminals using the Lawyer X scandal to get out of jail early.

    Among the options being discussed are laws that would target individuals to prevent their release.

    It is understood criminals like Tony Mokbel would be hit by the laws if they were created, similar to the way state parliament legislated to keep Hoddle St killer Julian Knight behind bars.

    A specialist court to fast-track dozens of criminals’ appeals sparked by the scandal is also being considered, while some existing legislation could also be strengthened to ensure any criminals freed by appeal could be banned from associating with former associates or high-risk crooks.

    Premier Daniel Andrews said the use of a lawyer as an informant was disturbing and “we need to be certain that this could never happen again”.

    The premier would not be drawn on any of the government’s legislative options, but said he would be focused on practical outcomes.

    When pushed about the potential for specific laws, he said a commonsense approach would be taken.

    “I wouldn’t say (legislation is) likely, that prejudges things, but it’s certainly possible,” he said.

    For the government to act it would have to have watertight advice, the premier said.

    “If a conviction was deemed unsafe, the last thing you would want to do is something that is legally questionable and potentially unsafe itself in order to remedy that.

    “You have got to be very careful not to cause a problem when trying to fix that very problem.”

    Mr Andrews also strongly backed Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton, who made it clear early in his five-year term that he would not be seeking reappointment next year.

  225. Elle

    He said in the meantime, manufacturers needed to move from “linear” to “circular” economies.

    “Resources-to-waste products is the current model, but a circular economy is where you can time and time again use the parts … you can dismantle them and reuse them for new products.

    A “premeditative murderer” who stabbed a teenage girl 45 times has walked free despite the victim’s family warning he will kill again.

    When he was arrested, Vulic tried to take the process through the mental health court in an effort to deny Vlatka’s family justice, her loved ones say.

    Ultimately declared fit to face the charges, Vulic pleaded guilty in July 2006 and was jailed “for life” – a minimum of 15 years in jail.

    Uni class analyses behaviour of Married At First Sight contestants

    Reality show Married At First Sight is being used in university lecture theatres to train the next generation of psychologists.

    Episodes of the Channel 9 series are being shown to psychology students at Griffith University who must then dissect them and study the outrageous behaviour of the contestants.

    Lecturer Dr Nicola Sheeran, runs a course at Griffiths called Interpersonal Skills “where we teach active listening, how we send messages appropriately and basic communication skills”.

    She said: “I include MAFS because it’s topical, timely and something that both the younger and older generation of students both watch.

    “I show clips of good communication but often where it has gone wrong, then we unpack why and what the skills are behind why it has gone wrong.”

    JC, the CO2 in the cycle cohenite describes comes from limestone.
    It goes like this – atmospheric CO2 is used by phytoplanton which use to to build their shells (CaCO3). When they die they sink to the bottom of the ocean and are eventually subducted along with water and are recycled back to the atmosphere via volcanoes.
    In the presence of heat, pressure and iron oxides, CO2 and water can form methane (natural gas) and even higher hydrocarbons.

    It is weird that the official purpose of the jury is to assess the facts of the case, and yet when some expert says, “Here are the facts!” the jury is supposed to shrug and accept everything exactly as said. Well, who does assess those facts of the case, if not the jury?
