Did you know that an increase of some degrees in global temperature may actually be good to the human race?
I found this out reading one of many Asimov's non-fiction books. In it (written last century, before this AGW craze) he stated that global warming was not all the bad that people thought: actually, some degrees increase would make huge portions of Siberia and Canada livable and food-producing... which meant that it would be a good thing overall to the human…Continue

I was looking at the logo of a well-known american beverage brand. Imagine you don't know ANYTHING about it; how would you read the brand?

I consider myself a libertarian atheist. In all things "social" I would…Continue
