“Do you seriously not see why this was necessary? Are you being intentionally dense? If they wanted to use the filibuster, tehy should have saved it for when there was an actual problem with the nominees, not just automatically filibustered *everyone* for no good reason. They were abusing it, so they had their toy taken away.”

“Do you like the abuse of power by the NSA,IRS,Homeland Security ???? The cases brought before the DC Circuit which is now balanced will be about the abuses of power.You may like Obama but you are just a blind acolyte if you do not see that his administration has abused their power.”

“In the first study, they applied the the LA directly to bacteria samples. It's quite a leap to then say that swishing it in your mouth will kill acne (presumably on your face). It's an interesting article nonetheless.”

I know it's wiki but it's just to support my understanding of the definition of sub-lingual.”

“So, basically, it's like introducing new wildlife or flora to a controlled environment... It's likely to have a significant long term affect.”

Skel118 on Nov 20, 2013 at 20:20:14

“The second article is a bit long, I admit. The point was, though, that there's a section citing research done to support sub-lingual absorption (there are several sections referencing this delivery method but the check out the section regarding "oral" delivery) of LA specifically. Sub-lingual (by my understanding) meaning orally without swallowing. How much would you need to absorb and how frequently? Ahdunno
Although I'm fairly certain that acne thrives under certain conditions (which is why some people have more difficulty with it than others. Just as some people's internal "ecosystems" contain flora such as strep without it affecting them significantly. I doubt that it would thrive in an environment in which your pores secrete a substance that can dissolve it.
Point is that the evidence actually supports the notion that it could be correct and does not disprove anything specifically. So, I'm going with a verdict of "plausible with more evidence needed".”

“Yeah, those are the outliers. Do you know what words mean?”

Leonid Rivkin on Oct 28, 2013 at 21:47:24

“Whole Europe is outlier. If you look at comparing of homicide rates to gun ownership in Civilized world - US is the only outlier

Wonder why - it's because black on black crime. If you look at our homicide rate for non African American population - it's 2.37 - very comparable to EU 2.2 average.
And for non-Hispanic whites it's 1.8 - comparable to CA and UK(UK true number by US reporting is 1.67)

“Yes you can say that. There are tons of data out there showing that countries with more guns, with the exception of, like, two outliers, have far more homicides.”

Leonid Rivkin on Oct 25, 2013 at 00:07:49

“You have been drinking again?

Switzerland at #3, Germany(#4), France and Italy represent world highest gun ownership rates after US and Yemen(#2)

They have homicide rates 20-40% lower then UK and AU

Look at Yemen - a crappy 3rd world country with homicide rate of 4.2 - lower then US and full 5 times lower then gun free countries such as Brazil and Mexico

“Comparing the Risk x Comfort graph above, I think that the point seems to be that even with low risk, there is some risk. The lowest risk shoes appear to be running shoes, but they do have their downsides. I guess it's like finding out all of the things that can go wrong with even the most healthy foods and reporting those and ignoring the benefits. :)”
