One time, in math class, the teacher was really pissed at us and started yelling, "DO YOU EVEN KNOW BASIC MATH? DO YOU KNOW ADDITION? WHAT'S 2 + 2? COREY, WHAT'S 2 + 2?"and poor Corey wasn't paying attention. So I leaned over and whispered, "Seven." and he blurted out, "SEVEN" and I have never laughed so hard in my life.
U.S. budget deficit tripled this year to $3.3 trillion, by far the
highest ever. The U.S. economy shrank at a 31.7 percent annual rate in
the second quarter, by far the worst ever. The trade deficit is at its
highest level in 12 years. Consumer confidence is at its lowest level in
six years. Unemployment claims, which had never topped 700,000 in a
week before March, have topped 700,000 every week since March. Farm
bankruptcies are rising, even though government payments to farmers are
at an all-time high. Homicides are rising in America’s cities after
decades of decline, while a series of police killings of unarmed Black
Americans has triggered anguished protests and civil unrest. The West
Coast is on fire, and 2020 may turn out to be the hottest year in
recorded history. America’s reputation abroad is the worst it’s been
since the Pew Research Center began doing polling.Oh, by the way.. 200,000 Americans are dead because of a botched response to the pandemic ..Should Trump be re-elected?excon
I think most dermatologists or experts (at least those on the social media platform) are in agreement that sunscreen is vital, not only in terms of protecting the skin from UV-rays, but some also claim it is serves as an anti-aging agent, since sun exposure is the cause of 80% of aging in our skin.Then there are other doctors and influencers that claim sun exposure is good for the skin. Not the summer-sun though, but if you live in the north, you're probably not using sun screen in the fall or the winter, right? Some doctors think this is not only "not dangerous" but it is actually healthy. Their view on sunscreen is that it not only protects us from the suns damaging rays, but it also "protects" us from the GOOD things the sun offers our bodies.What do you think? Sunscreen in the winter? Good? Bad?
Ive been watching a lot of documentaries on human evolution, and I find it interesting learning about the different primate species - more specifically I find the discussion of when our species became ''not monkey'' interesting. Like, was it when we started using tools, was it when we started communicating, was it when we started doing art?In your opinion, what kind of human qualities make us different from not just monkeys, but all of the other animals on this earth?
Trump announced a 'surge' of federal agents to cities led by Democrats. The author of 'How Fascism Works' says Trump is 'performing fascism.'https://www.businessinsider.com/is-trump-fascist-jason-stanley-says-it-is-wrong-question-2020-7?r=US&IR=T
In the eyes of the US Constitution, what constitutes "speech"?
This was an issue brought up in the oral arguments of Masterpiece Cakeshop v Colorado Civil Rights Commission, and whatever your view on that case is, I thought these questions were very interesting.1. If someone bakes a cake, but someone else serves it at a wedding, is that speech?2. If there's a collection of cupcakes, and one is flipped over, is that the baker's speech?3. If there's a wedding in a fancy house with a TV showing a ballerina, whose work is speech? The ballerina, the baker, the architect, the officiant? Why?4. Which one of them isn't speech and why?Please don't be obscene or rude. All offenders will be banned.Cheers
I'm asking a question which I myself will not answer because answering the question constitutes an argument and that would make me complacent and complicit in said argument, which, for reasons that will become clear in a moment, I cannot condone.Instead, I will describe the observations I have made here on CD over the years and let the reader answer the question down below, in the argument section.What I have observed is that the act of making an argument will, more often than not, lead to someone labeling you "an idiot" by their definition of the word which they may, or may not, then share with you. Further more, their labeling will probably be a rather explicit declaration, instead of an implied suggestion. And, to add insult to injury, they will not add a smiley at the end.This in turn leaves the person who made the accusation in the first place, exposed to being labeled an idiot themselves, since once they commit the words to a post... those words become an argument themselves. This chain of events continues until either one of the participants becomes tired or banned from the debate.Having described my observations, I now await the person clever enough to answer the question posed. Who are the idiots on this site ;)Please identify the "True Idiots" on the left column. If you can also specify the people who should be removed from the left column by identifying them on the "Wait..., what? Not an idiot!" on the right column.
