Electronic housefly trap

Comment: 6 days ago

Dangerous. These greedy flies have been sucked in by the lure of the trap and the stupid ones (who didn't see what was coming) got caught.

Once inside, the stronger flies will survive by eating the bodies of their weaker colleagues until one super strong, greedy and stupid one emerges to take over.

It's a metaphor for the US political system.

One of those speakers seemed to know what he was talking about and could argue his position, the other retreated to restating that everything would be fine.

Dear god, make it stop.

Absolutely agree - it looks like a great piece of work... but it's not the Royal Navy, it's the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) which is a charity https://rnli.org/

Noam Chomsky discusses gun control

Comment: 28 days ago

OK, there are any number of well-known libertarian "guest" posters who can trounce this so-called argument because they own guns and Chumsky doesn't.

What can "No I'm Chumsky" have to say about this as he has no experience of possibly having his guns taken away?

Democracy Now! - World burns but media isn't talking about climate change

I'm right up there with you. Cary's argument seems to be

Chomsky warns against climate change.

Chomsky goes on aeroplanes (which contribute to climate change).

Therefore Chomsky's arguments are invalid and I should be allowed to drive my gas guzzler (blah blah blah)

Just because he doesn't seem to follow his principles 100% (and we know nothing of how he might offset his carbon footprint) doesn't invalidate his arguments. They could still be valid - he just may not adhere to them all the time.

And well done, Cary, for being a vegetarian like me. Maybe you could start cycling to work as well, like me - or are you just going to make excuses? Blah, Blah, Blah

By golly how right you are. Noam Chomsky got on an aeroplane! I mean how selfish is that?

All these moaners whining about His Awesomeness pulling out of a measly international treaty on climate change and reinvigorating the Great American Coal Industry - what do they know about stuff?

You're right, though - if it's good enough for Chomsky, I'm going to fly to work every day and hang the environment.

Yes, I'm not going to do the decent or responsible thing either. I'm going to keep my central heating on in summer, rev my engine at traffic lights, only ever have one person in my car (it's MY car ffs, you can drive your own) until I see ALL these scientists and reporters living the lifestyle that might have helped (if we'd started 10 years ago).

In fact even if they ALL adopt a low-carbon lifestyle, I'm not going to - as long as there's at least one other short-sighted twat like me. After all, why should that other twat get one over on me?

Call that evidence? All I hear is blah blah blah

"But my comment was to “The Bob” where he was implying that we don’t have any gun control,"

Interesting interpretation of me saying "Yes, you do have gun control in the States." Is this a Trumpian re-invention of language, "sort of double-negative thing. I think that's cleared that up"?

Yes, you do have gun control in the States, but the point is it's not very stringent.
