    TBH, I was confused by the earlier autopsy result. That earlier one read like a death report that would say that someone who had terminal lung cancer died of some other organ failure, when everyone knows that person wouldn't have died without the lung cancer. Likewise with someone's neck being...

    Good point. I keep seeing/reading about peaceful protests over the George Floyd killing occurring during daylight hours, only to be taken over by rioters and looters after dark, drowning out the actual protest with simple violence against innocent people and property. The violence after dark...

    As a resident, I'll confirm that not all of us make or run moonshine. There's always bourbon. ;)

    :joyfull: I kept hearing the names Doug and Bob and not quite putting the names together and why that was funny, but knew there was something funny about the names. Glad someone pointed it out. It’s the first new American manned space vehicle since Space Shuttle Columbia in 1981. As it was...

    I hope not yet. I'd really like to see separate trials for them, with separate charges based on the level of culpability which can easily be proven to be sure they get at least some time.

    https://www.cnbc.com/2020/05/29/former-officer-involved-in-death-of-george-floyd-has-been-arrested.html I don't know if this will do much to prevent rioters/looters from destroying more property and hurting innocent people tonight, but it's a good first step, and hopefully charges against all...

    And then had to fight essentially a second war for independence barely 20 years later against an even stronger British military. Hardly an overthrow. ;)

    It’s a good thing those rioters in MN torched that guilty car in a parking lot I just saw on the news. -s It seems an ineffective protest for any cause, especially one as important as the police brutality death Mr. Floyd suffered, to wantonly destroy innocent people’s property. Unless someone...

    Violence against innocents is never justified. If you can’t make people listen without resorting to violence, either the cause or the messenger is doomed.

    Just to be clear and make sure there is some moral common ground, there is no justification for mob violence and looting, right?

    Source document for data in that article: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17JmyFzOd3ZEYCGpP0mK5lS_P10yPgCuYF8PYALKuTs8/edit#gid=0 Another column that might be more useful is the one titled "Est. % of Nursing & Residential Care Home Residents Dead". New York's % in that column is 2.55%...

    Apparently their % of nursing home Covid deaths was so low relative to other states because they did not count those who died in hospitals, but came from nursing homes.

    Besides, the unemployment rate almost 6 months before an election won't matter but a fraction of how much it will matter in October.

    Just watched the Minneapolis mayor’s presser. It was a waste of time that in itself will not calm things there. He should have had a local prosecutor with him announcing charges against the cops involved in Floyd’s death. Instead it was imprecise language talking about this time being a “marker...

    Next launch window is 3:22 pm Saturday. One thing I prefer about SpaceX versus NASA countdowns is that I don’t think they have that artificial hold at -2:00 like NASA did with every manned launch, and if there’s a scrub they just come out with it immediately instead of 30 minutes of speculation...
