Topic: Is England Still Part of Europe?
Posted: Thursday, September 12, 2019 4:50:44 PM
UK will always be part of Europe. It's not going anywhere. All the details and differences Mr. Hanson talked about are just part of European history. British imperialism is still imperialism.

Is negative interest rates innate part of free-market/democratic world/capitalism? It is more like some kind of deformed byproduct symbolizing a free-market/capitalism going awry.
Topic: Barn-sour?

Barn and Buddy Sour… aka Separation Anxiety. First, to clearly define what we are discussing, barn sour refers to a horse that wants to stay at the barn or that wants to rush back. Buddy sour refers to a horse who has become very attached to another horse.

Topic: Eratosthenes and the curvature of the Earth
Posted: Saturday, June 15, 2019 10:31:13 AM
The sun is so far away its rays to different points of earth are almost parallel. Consider they are parallel. If the earth is flat, sticks placed at different places on earth should have the same length of shadow (their angles to the rays of the sun are the same). If the surface of the earth is curved, sticks at different places will have different angles to the rays of the sun hence they have different lengths of shadows.

Since stick's shadows at different places have different lengths, the surface of the ear must be curved.

Why don't I come up with something like this?

Not sure Trump cares about those Republicans even when they are the most obsequious sycophant left.

The current occupant represents the Republican party. He is part of the Republican party. He was never an "outsider" as his donors are the same donors that most of the other republican politicians have.


I am not sure Trump and Republican party care about each other too much.

I hope we don't go back to the Conservatives with their anti climate, anti women, and uterus control ideas.


Thanks for your long reply! I didn't know JWR's "N to N" agenda.

The solution can only come from outside the two political parties.


That is correct. And the first grotesque result is current presidency.

Will the next child be better-looking?

JWR is more fitting to be Canadian PM.
