Per NS, “we could access a wormhole it would be more possible to do your suggestion if say we could instantly get a telescope 51 light years away.”
SUPER! Problem solved. Thread closed!
Hmmm… maybe they already did that and they just didn’t release it to the general public because they’re not ready to disclose that level of technology yet…
It would certainly explain how you can get to be President when you aren’t qualified to apply to most positions on USAjobs.com…
Is there such a thing as time “constriction?” Perhaps key leaders in the State Department were experiencing time constriction after the first Benghazi embassy attack, and that’s why they didn’t immediately organize an armed response? It seems like after the first of 3 attacks, small as it was, you would probably want to have SETAF fall out of the sky and start putting lead through people, no? Or some kind of… I don’ t know… cool guy QRF?
It’s too bad we don’t have some kind of armed robot we could have just had on station to provide security to geographically remote locations….

We still haven’t figured out if citizens have the right to bear arms in the District of Columbia…
Oh… wait… we did… from CO’s own link:
Let’s keep the thread going anyway though… it has brought so much joy to the boring old “Forum” section…
“Humans might be speeding it up, but they aren't CAUSING it.”
Ah, but that’s bull, because speeding it up is the problem. If it were happening slowly (naturally) and to a normal (natural) degree, it wouldn’t be such a problem and we’d have plenty of time to deal with it.
It’s very clear that CO2 is spiking faster than it ever has in Earth’s history, and this is due to human events, and it correlates closely with the rise in temperatures.
“I assure you, if we all became vegans, and only used solar power and didn't drink bottled water, the climate would still change. I ASSURE you it will.”
But the climate change would be slow enough and small enough for us to easily adapt to it.
You can’t easily adapt to almost the entire surface of the earth being frozen like during snowball earth. You don’t easily adapt to it getting much hotter. It will eventually get just as hot without humans contributing to it. In fact, being warmer is preferable to being colder. Ice ages suck.

Yes, that is why Steven Hawkings (and others) claim the human race will only survive if it leaves the planet (many moons from now). But, NS, you could volunteer to be NASA’s first passenger. And procreate a population on a planet of your own.
I just wish more people would actually use this response to NS. This thread could have ended days ago.
Yay Capt’n Tightpants!
Swag is hereby awarded one FREDTERP.
And I’m guessing NS wouldn’t like to comment on how long it took for “snowball Earth” to form, nor how long it took to then warm up enough to support life as we know it. Perhaps he’d like to take the global temperature change during that period and divide it by the time it took yielding an average change per year. Now do the same with, say, the last 20 or even 50 years and contrast and compare. Gee, I wonder what other variables could account for such a difference in the two? Hmm…
Reality denying liberals honor Virginia resident, Tawana Brawley. What did they do to the person who pimped her lies? Made him a MSNBC host.
No, steve, it will be much hotter, much faster because of human activity. Accept that rigorously proven scientific fact.
It’s funny that 20 years ago, the deniers were saying the globe isn’t warming. Now they can’t deny that any more, so they’ve switched to denying that human activity is a cause.
Tawana Brawley? You think Tawana Brawley is relevant to a discussion about climate change?
You really are nuts, steve.

Research shows that smokers' sperm counts are on average 13-17% lower than non-smokers.
