I'm not generalising here: I'm reporting the data. You were generalizing when you claimed kids would rather be in a classroom than "stuck at home". That isn't what I said. And, again, your proposal will result in bright kids not being pushed and lazy kids doing fuck all intentionally in o...

The port of Beirut not counting the naval base (which is also unusable at the moment). Handles roughly 7,000 ships per year. The next largest port handles roughly 450 ships per year. Is that a limitation of that port's capacity, or simply where ships go? I mean, not every port here on the US East C...

And then they will deliberately do badly to get a chance to be back in a classroom fucking around with their mates instead of being stuck at home. Your generalization of what school kids are like doesn't cover my own case. I would have gladly read a pile of books at home instead of going into schoo...

We've just had a months-long demonstration of exactly how much of a trash fire it is, so no. It's no good for the small kids, not least because it requires 20+ parents to do supervision 1 teacher could be doing. I do think it could be used for some of the year 10 (up) students. It's been absolutely...

Not for another 6-9 months, no. By that time, however, the vaccines will likely be widely available and the virus will be the problem of the anti-vax morons. Six months is February. Why can’t they cut some corners with the vaccine? It clearly works so why do all the trials? Because it doesn't "...

Except for the large chunks of time when you were in school being forced to learn. That simply isn't possible remotely.

If they do nothing, than it prevents nothing, if you fine people, then the rich (who according the article are largely the people doing this) can keep doing it, if you imprison people you'd definitely say that's too far.

2-3 years is the foreseeable future, though: I've moved into several homes intending to live there indefinitely, and am yet to last more than 2 years in one (primarily to get away from fucking useless landlords).

And landlords are different from businesses providing other kinds of rental services. Everything else people rent is something they only want or need for a limited period of time, and the service provider keeps a stock of that available for people to use for a few hours or days or whatever it is.

The standing point is that bio-terrorism is exceedingly rare. Are there any examples of successful infiltrations of laboratories and the CDC you wanna talk about to discredit that? If not, I think it's safe to say that if there's no evidence that shit happens... It's never happened. The consequence...

Again: 40 years of being (a) pretty much the highest value target for terrorist groups besides actual nuclear silos and (b) having their locations being public knowledge is plenty of evidence.

I'm still not sure how the ammonium nitrate was contaminated with oil though, since it requires 4%-5% of oil to become an explosive. Not quite. 4-5% oil content lowers the flash point to a level that's commonly achieved. There are piles of other possible contaminants that do the same thing, and unc...

Yes. Lots. Specifically, they put ammonium nitrate in poorly controlled conditions and left it there for years.

So why are you suggesting it's anything other than the tragic accident it's being reported as? I said it may be some rebellious youth, I'm not saying terrorism, although it could be.

I see. Could the same then apply to Covid? Well, Covid originated from bats, so it's safe to assume the similar is likely to happen. Though it would need quite some years.

Are rebellious youths capable of detonating with 1.5 kilotons of power? I know it may sometimes seem like it, but I doubt it. True, I just can't think of anything else. Not really? It was more likely an industrial accident born from gross negligence and carelessness. So how do people in the end say...
