I think IntLibber's point, and yours, Dave, is that you have no media outlets that cater to your views very specifically. Know what, neither do I. You can't call me a hypocrite for wanting to share the wealth, because I'm not a liberal. It's a very typical tactic of the conservative side to label an...

Fox has some conservative commentators and Guests. ABC has John Stossel. CNN USED to have Glen Beck. That's about it. You must be kidding. Fox has "some" conservative commentators? But they're generally liberal? As for CNN... Lou Dobbs? That's just off the top of my head. Wall Street Journal? A ton...

And here I thought that all citizens in a democracy were possessed of equal rights. But they're the "enemy," so, I guess not. Seems pretty self-serving... but what do I know. As for the notion that Fox News is a source of liberal propaganda... well that's just patently incorrect. Or, wait, does the ...

To be fair, all I'm doing is trying to be fair. You're the one trying to ascribe an evolutionary problem to one half of the political spectrum.

Small margin is not equal to a monopoly, or a crisis.

So... Fox News is also in on the Monopoly? Rush Limbaugh, too, I suppose? Wall Street Journal? These are exceptions that prove the rule? Well they certainly would like people to think so (all while claiming simultaneously to be beating the other side in popularity, somehow). I think that the media i...

Is that a typo? Or a very subtle double-entendre?

:-)

If/when we see the experimental data, any chance that it'll give us enough info to decide if this is, in fact, a problem? Or don't we know enough about the data yet? Probably the latter, eh?

Zogby decides not to take a bet, which will profit them nothing if they win, and cost them if they lose, and that's proof that they feel that there are more ignorant libs then cons? Zogby does polls when there's money in it, like any business. I could argue that if they original poll wanted a compar...

The long-line cusp escapes, the "central" ones that go to infinity. I can't counter you, and say that these aren't already "capped" by the electric field, maybe you're right. I'm just saying that, if such a problem does exist, as Art Carlson seems to believe, that this might be a solution. I'll leav...

Ignorance knows no political affiliation. I could post the video of the woman who, at a town hall meeting with John McCain, had to be told by the same that no, Barack Obama is not a terrorist.

Sounds a little like my idea (somebody had it before me, I recall) of encasing the cube inside an octahedron with a field over each cusp. To the uneducated, at least. What I referred to as "Capping the holes." This, of course, would horrifically complicate any attempt to extrapolate from a simulatio...

I believe that this quote is attributable to Walt Kelly's cartoon character, Pogo. A font of wisdom there, if ever there was one.

Note to people who might consider the Lego reference to be somewhat... I dunno, childish?... Lego's tolerances on their parts are incredibly small. 2 µm I read? Think about how perfectly Legos fit together. That said, PDF is almost an indictment... OK, I jest, mostly because PDFs are misused. They'r...

Funny that somebody mentioned that a particle accellerator was the opposite of what we're talking about in terms of energy capture. They can also be exactly what we're talking about, it turns out:

Hey, Scare, young women want those things. They couldn't, therefore, possibly be practical.
