It's not really an illness you'd expect to get this day and age, it probably wouldn't take much for it to explode in a pandemic again in the right conditions (ie city slums). Kind of surprised its that treatable tbh, I thought it wasn't anywhere near that containable. A couple of those epidemic level viruses/plagues don't have cures. I guess he gets an Honorary Darwin Merit award, stopping a cat and getting the one in a billion chance of catching the plague.
I think the bubonic plague was as epidemic as it was because when it struck, people hadn't quite mastered basic hygiene at the time, let alone discovered penicillin.

You'd be (un)surprised what kind of remedies people practiced during the Black Death in hopes of curing themselves. If that didn't work, the more religious fanatics would go on a self-flogging to absolve them of God's wrath onto the populace.

He does have a fairly pretty face, and can more or less pull off the posture/clothing too. Still that first pic, and second pic... there is something off about them. Upper body shape maybe.

Side note (not that it's a problem for me but,) you might want to throw a NSFW on that link since it goes to Sankaku.

At this point everyone should know that Sankaku is NeverSFW.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Two 'scientists' believe time in the future will stop completely.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/s...ompletely.html

Obviously have not taken mathematics in high school and are unfamiliar with the terms 'Exponent' and 'Asymptote'. Wouldn't be surprised if they believe half of 1 is 0.

I think otherwise, if time has an starting point, why would it not have an ending?. So far even space in our universe has not been proven to be infinite, the fact that the universe is expanding somehow goes against the idea of it being infinite.

How do you know time had a starting point?

You don't need to prove it's infinite. The uncertainty itself is a given until proven. So until we can prove the universe is finite, it is infinite by default. And infinity is a concept. It's not a existing value that can actually exist. It's the default declaration to anything deemed impossible to calculate. Such as division by 0.

No one has actually divided an object by zero. They didn't prove it's equivalent to infinity. It remains that way until someone can actually divide something by zero.

It can be argued that time (at least OUR time, we have no way of telling if outside the universe it is the same time) started with the bing bang, but it might have started even before our universe was created.

In science there are no defaults, either is is a proven fact or it is not. You can make assumptions when there is no data available, but doing so does not make said assumptions any more real.

Because that's what the math that explains the data we have says.

Not .. really. Its not "infinite by default" - the answer would simply be unknown. For local analysis purposes, you can "assume infinity" but calculations may not hold over very large distances - just like assuming space is "flat" is fine until you get near large gravity wells or huge distances.

Um, I'll refer you to the mathematics of Cantor, complex variables, and limit theory.

The Canadians are Coming! The Canadians are Coming!

OK, this isn't exactly "news," but there's no other obvious place to post this.

Issac Brock, Tecumseh, Charles de Salabery, and Laura Second star in The Fight for Canada.
Coming soon to a battlefield near you!

Here on the US side of the border I haven't heard a word about the bicentennial of the War of 1812. I've got my musket ready, though, just in case I'm drafted to defend the Vermont border against invasion. I know that the Harper Government wasn't happy with the pipeline decision, but this seems rather an extreme reaction, don't you think?

I'm actually more interested in what will happen in 2014. If the Tea Party is still around, I wonder if they'll march on Washington and burn it to the ground in commemoration?

they are more likely to demand a Invasion of Canada.

i keep hearing form conservative commentators who they don't mind admitting Canada into the US. I wonder if any of these people have enough math skills to realize they would adding millions of liberal voters and about a dozen Left leaning Senators.

The Americans tried just that a whole year before the British attacked Washington, and managed to destroy York (now Toronto). That may be why the War of 1812 is much more well-known in Canada than America.

Probably a stupid question, but why are they all firing at the same time? Instead of going for continuous fire, for example?

It has nothing to do with the pipeline's decision, it's just than Harper's nationalism is kind of english monarchist. In our situation it's a anachronism.
