Not quite the same.  Making Marijuana legal will solve more problems than it creates.  Making assault rifles illegal will solve more problems than it creates.

Why make it legal?  You did it even though it was illegal.  Being illegal did not stop you.  Statistically a lot of people do it too.  Clearly making it illegal is not stopping use.  Yes, it is unhealthy but the point is it is making average people like yourself criminals as well as funding crime.  If you are unlucky enough to be caught, you are put through the criminal system, labelled the rest of your life, will have restricted prospects in vocation, international travel etc.  Legalising it will not make it more popular just as making it illegal is preventing its use.  Anyone who wants to already can and do.  More and more governments are realising that making it illegal is creating more problems than it is solving.  That's why.

Every Kg that is put into orbit has a HUGE price tag. Literally millions are spent on making space cargo as absolutely light as possible. This rocket is no exception. Then add the cost of going beyond an Earth orbit. This rocket was not cheap. Of course you can say “that that money could have been used in a more humanitarian way”. It’s logical. BUT, to use that money to launch a mannequin in a sports car, looking like he is driving through Tuscany in summer... Well played, Sir.

But remember... religious leaders can do whatever they want to kids.  Imagine if mum caught dad dunking the kid in the bath like this.  Yet a man with a silly hat does it and everyone watches with reverence.

I looked up Oxfam to check the facts presented (as we all should).  Even though their cheese is orange they still ranked higher than quoted.  http://www.oxfam.org.uk/what-we-do/good-enough-to-eat

What a Tesla "sees" in self-drive mode

Comment: 549 days ago

I noticed the car stopped for no reason at 1:41 while turning a corner.  The rear camera shows a car behind.  If a truck was 10m behind that car expecting both cars to proceed normally around the corner the truck would have no chance of stopping in time.   Sure the Tesla would be safe though.  To use an old quote describing Volvo Drivers, "Ride in a Tesla and you will be in less accidents...  But see a lot more."

Just about every problem we face regarding humans and the earth can be solved if the religious leaders of the world get together (cough) and collectively promote two children per couple.  The current dogma is "breed".  It is obvious there are too many of us.  We can't have mass executions or wait for a virus.  We need to collectively take a mature approach.  Governments can't do it as it would lead to mass revolt.  The only thing that the masses will take unquestioning heed to is religion.  The fate of our future is up to the handful of religious leaders.  They and they alone can make the change.  Human salvation is the forefront of all religion after all.  So will they do it?  Fat chance.  The Earth as we have known it for 10,000 years is f##ked.

Maybe it is because they don't breathe underwater like a diver does.  This means their blood does not get a chance to build up desolved nitrogen.  Free divers don't get the benz either.  Same reason. Or maybe they just prefer BMW's

You like to poke, don't you?  FYI: The UK does not control Australia. Australia has a constitutional monarchy meaning the queen (and not the UK parliament) has the role to uphold the Australian constitution.  She does not introduce legislation, she doesn’t receive any public money from Australia.  Britain is regarded as a completely foreign government.

He's right.  I recommend reading Guns Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond.  Beyond 10k years ago the earth was in an iceage and not conducive to farming.  Humans were hunter-gatherers meaning it was favourable to have small nomadic communities. We have had a stable climate that has allowed farming for the last 10k years.  Farms mean fewer people are needed to make more food.  This allows larger communities and frees up labour for roles such as full time soldiers, priests, politicians, educators, tool makers artisans etc. and hence the start of civilization.  Now we are coming to an end of stable weather.  Some people deny this (about the same number that think the moon landing was a hoax) and some people think it is just a coincidence that it is happening post human industrialisation (possible, but they’re long odds… very long).
