Re: NY: No place but New York City

Has anyone in New York ever seen a solar insolation map broken out by month? The dark blue color blanketing NY from October Until April doesn't mean "tons of free energy".

Re: Malaysia Airlines Flight Vanishes

Maybe the act really was that easy for him. But all of those people? They didn't harm him- he wouldn't have recognized any if them had he seen them even during the flight. I interact with suicidal people on a very regular basis and they are uniformly either fixated upon themselves and their troubles...

Canada: more NBA championships than NHL championships in the past 25 years.

Re: Lorcin 380

Why would you voluntarily fire a pistol with a pot metal slide? At some point, a hefty rock is a surer bet.

Re: Malaysia Airlines Flight Vanishes

I would guess that most suicidal people do not care about other people, but this generally results in them not really caring about how their death affects others. They justify it to themselves by “they’re better off without me,” but they are so focused on their own pain they cannot empathize with a...

Re: Malaysia Airlines Flight Vanishes

The article seems built to make the case that the command pilot went nuts and killed everyone aboard. Based upon what I assume is all of the available evidence that seems to be the most likely explanation. That leaves the more frightening question of why this is an international incident rather than...

Re: Ask Amy...

Children should be taught to fear guns until they are old enough to be taught to responsibly handle them (even if they never willingly do so). The basic, safe handling of a firearm is a life skill. When the population was largely rural it was simply passed down like changing a tire or watering plant...

Re: No place but Florida

If you run drugs for a gang, why would you not try to look as normal as possible? Why would you cover yourself in probable cause?

Re: Democrats introduce victims can sue gun manufacturers bill

This is an opportunity. Why not introduce a bill allowing victims of distracted drivers to sue phone and app makers? Better yet, introduce it as an amendment. Point out the hypocrisy in Technicolor.

It seems like 265000 registered objects in a state that could go blue and is Trump's biggest source of electoral votes would matter to him.

Re: Trump: Banning Suppressors?

Jerry Miculek did a video on using a pillow as a silencer: It was exceptionally effective for 3-4 shots. https://youtu.be/cnMeTlXsXC8 A metal device that makes the deafening report of a firearm safer while being handily outdone in pure sound suppression by an untraceable pillow can hardly be a good ...

Re: June 6, 1944

I would hesitate to make tiers of heroism based upon scale or outcome. First, because the grunts in Vietnam or Afghanistan suffered no less than those in WW2. But more than that, we also need to remember that Iraq lost more tanks/IFVs during Medina Ridge, 73 Easting, Al Busayah and Norfolk than Germ...
