    BELGIUM: Doctors at Royal Academy of Medicine say parents who raise their children as vegans should be prosecuted
    10:17 AM · May 19, 2019

    You don’t have to go that far.
    Case here a couple of weeks ago of a grossly underweight 18 month old with brittle teeth because dad insisted on a vegan diet.
    They are fucking lunatics.
    And don’t start me on people who insist their cat or dog is a vegan or vegetarian.

    OK, a trivial factoid.

    Did you know, that there is only one country between Finland and North Korea?

    If you’re flying from one to the other over Russia.

    Arky,

    It’s Keno, not ‘Keano’.

    A five spot gets you $620. A ten spot and you’re a millionaire.

    Please pay attention.

    Honestly you nerds disgust me.
    It’s a Friday night and you could be at the strippers where you have proof that God exists AND is Good.
    F$cking disgraceful.

    What’s the argument? That you could measure the variables down to the last atom’s weight, and the last molecular interaction in the spring, but that at a certain set of conditions it would still be 50/50?

    correct. in reality everything seems to be probability, there is always variation

    it might be possible to build a coin tosser such that its likely error rate exceeds the expected lifetime of the universe, but even that doesn’t preclude you seeing an actual coin toss miss. however if you saw 2 or more misses you would have to start to question your initial assumptions.

    it’s exactly around this whole inaccuracy thing that I found physics pracs incredibly tedious.

  8. Knuckle Dragger

    Wait for it, Arky.

    You’ll thank me in the morning.

    Look, just because you have Asian relatives that eat dog does not mean you have to be unsympathetic to their plight.
    Show some compassion.

    Go watch The Piano or Once Were Warriors.
    They are more your speed.

    My wife made me watch The Piano with her at the cinema.
    I was cheering for the piano to take her to the bottom. When she got loose I said “bugger” loud enough for the other suffering males near us to hear. Much laughter from the lads and dirty looks from the girls.

  19. Stimpson J. Cat

    Trying to logically prove or disprove the existence of God or Gods is ridiculous, because EVERY God or God’s were clearly created by what we can clearly define as Mentally Ill people, and can only be communicated with by Mentally Ill people.
    This has been true throughout the entirety of recorded history.
    Mental Illness is not logical.
    If this statement is untrue, then all of you Sane people need to rather drastically change the definitions of Mental Illness, and join me.

    Teacher’s Highland Cream is vastly underrated.

    Blended malts are fit only for the treatment of skin infections in human beings, and blowfly strike in Merino sheep. They were never meant for human consumption.

    I made the same mistake going to watch “Pretty Woman”. Titles are deceiving. She was a fucking hooker FFS.

    I kept yelling out to the lead role bloke “Open your eyes dude, she’s a fucking hooker”.

    Missus wasn’t too happy. How did it end?

  31. dover_beach

    See LL at 9:57. Just for an example where your causality is quite definitely not predicated. My statement does not contain any metaphysics, it predicates nothing. It is a definition of a prediction.

    LL at 9.57 trades on a concept of causation which is why he can exclude someone’s mere looking east as the cause of the sun rising . Moreover, your definition does contain metaphysics, it isn’t a mere definition of a prediction, but of prediction per se. You are implying that predictions involve a relation between ‘doing certain things’ and ‘observing certain things’.

    Doubtful. If you incline to the theory that the Earth rotates on its axis and throw in assumptions about the latitude and longitude of the observer, you can deduce the consequence of seeing the sun rise without any causes. Of course, you can insist on the rotation of the earth as “causing” the sunrise if you are desperate. Which you are.

    Not at all. Why would insisting on the rotation of the earth as the ’cause’ of the sun rising be desperate when you ‘incline’ to a theory of the Earth rotating on its axis? Further, how is the rotation of the Earth on its axis causeless?

    Cancer Research Points to Key Unknowns about Popular “Antiaging” Supplements

    Zippy, Fleeced,

    This relates to NMN and NR. Based on cell energetics I had a suspicion about this but was unaware of any supporting evidence. None yet but cancer researchers have suggested caution. We can’t be sure but one of the big generic problems with antiaging strategies is many people over 50 have pre-cancerous or cancerous cells in their body. Microtumours are probably present. Supplements that support energy generation may have the perverse effect of preventing dangerous cells become senescent and becoming cancerous because senescent cells don’t divide. Rescuing senescent cells is the last thing we want to do and perhaps NMN and NR do that.

    This type of finding is not new. Another popular supplement N A cysteine, which promotes the major antioxidant pathway in mitochondria thereby improving energy generation, has also been implicated for increasing cancer risk.

  47. Sinclair Davidson

    Until the end.

    Not 45 seconds of ecstasy 55 minutes of the open forum.

    This is what I don’t get about Islam , either all women are belly dancers or none are. Any religion that accommodates a double standard is not a religion, see ancient Greece and Rome.

    Incidentally, commenting on some posts earlier while I was watching Wik 2 –

    The sun does not “rise in the east” regardless of which way you are facing.
    The Earth rotates to the east. The sun just sits there not giving a damn.

    Memoryvault, even from Sydney it’s six hours but if you start at 3 am you get there by 9 or 10 am, have a great time and then drive to Jindabyne, check into Station Resort, Marlborough Hotel or Nuggets Crossing and have a good dinner. The next morning hit the slopes again and head home after lunch. Of course, school holidays were more leisurely and if the weather was bad you visited Yarrangobilly caves or the hydro power stations.

  88. Mark A

    Stimpy, this time you’ve gone too far.
    Ban yourself for 48 hours.

  89. Knuckle Dragger

    Apologies, Zulu.

    Merely tried (and apparently failed) to mix in a bit of current events. I thought using ‘them’ rather than ‘those’ might have tipped people off. Wasn’t my intention to touch a nerve.

    I shall retire.

    Anyone want to bet on the temperature five years out? Ten years out?

    Your Government does, with YOUR money. Let the lobby groups “pony up first”, with their OWN cash. Not YOURS.

    How about the corporates put their money where their mouth is sans Government subsidies? If “NO ACTION” is catastrophic, it should be a good bet for them. Money for jam. These guys will make an absolute motza on it.

    Every claim they make, every cent you take.

  91. Crossie

    Regarding the hydro power stations, in the early 80s, Tumut 2 was open to the public and you were taken with a little train into the bowels of the Snowy Mountains to view the operation deep underground. Sadly these days you can only view Murray 2 and Tumut 3 that are rather pedestrian.

    I had my exposure to snow and skiing when we lived in Mt Beauty, Crossie.
    Up the hill to Falls Creek was less than half an hour.

    Liberals Who Learned About White Privilege Became Less Sympathetic to Poor Whites

    But their attitudes toward poor blacks remained unchanged, according to a study.

    “What we found startling was that white privilege lessons didn’t increase liberals’ sympathy for poor Black people,” writes Erin Cooley, one of the study’s authors and an assistant professor of psychology at Colgate University, in an explanatory post for Vice. “Instead, these lessons decreased liberals’ sympathy for poor white people, which led them to blame white people more for their own poverty. They seemed to think that if a person is poor despite all the privileges of being white, there must really be something wrong with them.”

    This proves that “white privilege” is a scam, invented by the solely for the purpose of destroying the only revolutionary force that has the proven ability to keep the corporations in check – the white working class.

    Haha it is true! And this is actually no joke. The vegans are a genuine threat to public safety and they will only become more dangerous. If you have decided that an animal such as a chicken and a human should be afforded identical rights, then of course you will feel justified in taking violent action to prevent the chicken [email protected] that goes on at Steggles and Ingham every day. You would view your actions as being as justifiable as the allied liberation of the [email protected] zi death camps in 1944-1945.

    There are Vegans who already think and believe that they are akin to the Liberators of Dachau.
    Madder than Stimpy and more dangerous than a Stimpy with a box of matches and a drum of accelerant.

  102. Let me guess.
    There’s a new open thread and no one has told me.
    …and here’s me sitting in the old OT playing with my matchbox cars.
