Samir: No one in this country can ever pronounce my name right. It’s not that hard: Na-ghee-na-na-jar. Nagheenanajar.
Michael Bolton: Yeah, well, at least your name isn’t Michael Bolton.
Samir: You know, there’s nothing wrong with that name.
Michael Bolton: There *was* nothing wrong with it… until I was about twelve years old and that no-talent ass clown became famous and started winning Grammys.
Samir: Hmm… well, why don’t you just go by Mike instead of Michael?
Michael Bolton: No way! Why should I change? He’s the one who sucks.
Peter Gibbons: So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that’s on the worst day of my life.
Dr. Swanson: What about today? Is today the worst day of your life?
Peter Gibbons: Yeah.
Dr. Swanson: Wow, that’s messed up.
Bob Porter: Looks like you’ve been missing a lot of work lately.
Peter Gibbons: I wouldn’t say I’ve been *missing* it, Bob.
Tom Smykowski: Well-well look. I already told you: I deal with the god damn customers so the engineers don’t have to. I have people skills; I am good at dealing with people. Can’t you understand that? What the hell is wrong with you people?
Sounds like somebody didnt get the memo on the new cover sheet for the tps reports

@VRW I think @shek is referring to slowing down photons (light particles) moving in free space unimpeded by interactions with any material. This was accomplished not by changing the temperature but by changing the shape of the photons themselves.

‘We’re Growing With Each Other’
I bet Mr. Wilson is growing considerably more that Ciara is.
They'll save money on their gas bill since Russell will be taking cold showers. Or he will have a great year next season since his grip strength and forearms will be outstanding.

I think Mr. Beck finally said something intelligent or at the very least engaged in some rational analysis.
Mr. Trump may think the US is losing wrt to its balance of trade with China, but ask the corporations which are actually doing the trading, like Walmart for instance, they’re winning and have been for a very long time.
So Walmart and other retailers aren’t going to be very happy if Mr. Trump raises tariffs, since there will be an immediate retaliation from China and Mexico. Walmart will be forced to lay off thousands perhaps tens of thousands of workers.
This will precipitate a recession and perhaps even a depression.
It is hard for me to take chicken little serious on anything.
Trump would ABSOLUTELY create a depression with this nonsense idea, same with Romney. What do they care? They are filthy rich and the filthy rich BENEFIT greatly during those hard times, and they can BUY UP the depressed valued properties. Don't forget that when you realize what Trump is, a real estate SHARK who is anxious to brag about the BILLIONS and BILLIONS he would YET have after becoming presenting and plunging us into a great great depression. He would benefit and enrich greatly in the whole process.
Maybe that's his secret plan.

Just a small correction, Schwarzchild technically did not predict the existence of black holes, he calculated a unique solution for Einstein’s’ field equations, something even Einstein was only able to approximate (math wasn’t his strong suit). This solution led to the derivation of the Schwarzschild radius, which is the size of the event horizon of a non-rotating black hole.

Einstein already won the prize in 1921 for the discovery of the photoelectric effect
John Bardeen is the only one who has won 2 Nobel prizes in physics.
From 1974, the Statutes of the Nobel Foundation stipulate that a Prize cannot be awarded posthumously, unless death has occurred after the announcement of the Nobel Prize.

This is yuuuuge! And so fitting that this comes shortly after the 100th anniversary of the publication of the General Theory of Relativity (which predicts the existence of gravitational waves)
Once again Einstein’s General Theory Of Relativity has withstood another test. This was probably the biggest.
Just to summarize the theory explained the Precession of the Perihelion of Mercury; predicted gravitational deflection of light around the sun, and now confirmed the existence of gravitational waves. I am not even going to get into Black Holes, the Big Bang, and kick starting the fields of cosmology and astrophysics.
If there are still any anti-relativists still out there I’d love to hear from you.
And please don’t bring up quantum mechanics (the fact the Relativity does not square with quantum mechanics doesn not mean it’s wrong).
Einstein presented his General Theory at the Prussian Academy of Science in November, 1915. Karl Schwartzchild used it to predict the existence of black holes a month after Einstein's theory was published in 1916. Science builds upon science, sometimes very quickly.
You are right, this is huge! Figuring out how to detect gravity waves was a large hurdle in the pursuit of space-time manipulation. We're still far away from doing any "warp drive" type stuff, but now that we can detect the gravity waves, this opens up a lot of possibilities!
General relativity has certainly held up at our current understanding of the universe, who knows if things change as we gain more knowledge. I can't say it will ever fall as i'm not a scientist. Stand or fall i love the new science work, i really like science involving space. The only thing i'm hoping for, even if i'm certain it will never happen in my lifetime, is that there is a way to either pass or bypass the speed of light. Otherwise we're stuck on the very slow path of travel which is so dang boring and would take forever.
???? 1.1 billion ???? Crickets.
Yes it is outstanding and how amazing is it that 100s of physicist have spent their careers trying to prove Einstein wrong about theories he came up with without the instruments, computers and tools they have available to test his theories and try to prove him wrong. That's what is huge. That he came up with this stuff without the benefit of technology to direct him in any particular direction.

Yes two random words out of tens of thousands, isn’t it a coincidence that the Nazis used them together to dehumanize Jews.

Gotta love this Blaze tweet, appears that the entire $4.1T or at least a substantial percentage, is to “combat terrorism” and “global warming”.
In reality 88% of the entire budget is for Social Security (33%), Medicare & Health (27%), Military (16%), Interest on Debt (7%), VA benefits (4%), Energy & Environment (1%), and Everything else is 12%.
So ‘global warming” is a some fraction of the 1% of the Energy and Environment and “terrorism” is some fraction of the 16% (if it’s included in the military budget).
by all means if so... fair is fair. don't care which party.
Why don't you read the story you linked. It says "the newly discovered information sent to Powell and Rice’s emails were not labeled classified at the time they were sent, according to NBC News."
Besides which, even if Powell or Rice did engage in criminal wrongdoing, pointing at them doesn't do anything to change Hillary's criminal wrongdoing.
If there is evidence of wrongdoing, they should also be indicted.
We are a nation of laws frenchie. Goose step on outta here.
Maybe not all of Israel but very definitely against some of Israel.

Recall Mr. Nugent referred to the POTUS as a “subhuman mongrel” and Wolf Blitzer’s response…
“I mean do they know the history of that phrase, subhuman mongrel? That’s what the Nazis called Jews leading up and during World War II”
“To justify the genocide of the Jewish community. They called the Jews unter menschen, or subhuman mongrels, if you read some of the literature that the Nazis put out. There’s a long history there of that specific phrase that he used involving the president of the United States.”
A Canadian has no room to talk after electing Junior Socialist, but all kidding aside....would you want someone like Trump leading Canada? I mean, yes, he's good for a laugh, but would he be good as your Prime Minister?
February 8, 2016 at 11:27pm
Yeah I don’t who it is either…
I listened to every AM talk radio station in the US, I watched FNC, I read the NY Post, and the WSJ editorial pages, I surfed the Drudge Report, The Blaze, The Daily Caller and Breitbart and there is no sign of it. Where did it go?
[-1] February 8, 2016 at 5:14pm
I can guarantee that if Ted Nugent was performing and he called the POTUS “a communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured, subhuman mongrel.” (which he actually did and apologized after being shamed), or he demanded Mrs. Clinton felate his rifle, the right wing entertainment complex would all be defending his comments, his freedom of speech, and the second amendment.
The "right wing entertainment complex"? I didn't know there was one. Who are they? If they exist, they are probably creating a lot better entertainment than this trash. I'd like to find them and support them.
 February 8, 2016 at 4:38pm
So is Mr. Kasich saying he’s to the right of Mr. Sanders and to the left of Mrs. Clinton?
This woman may vote for Elmer Fudd or John in the primary, but will fall in line, like any good Marxist democrat and vote Party.
Canada, that is exactly what he said, and it is the truth. He, Clinton, McCain, Reid, Graham, Pelosi, McConnell, Obama, Boehner, and the rest of the usual suspects are all the same.
Either Cruz will win, and we will have a social and economic recovery as we did under Reagan, or we will one day see a set of books entitled “The Rise and Fall of the American Republic.”

Actually the Core Jewish Population is about 14M and the so called Enlarged Jewish Population which includes Other Persons of Jewish Parentage, and respective non-Jewish households members is around 20M.

Certainly not by the 1B muslims.
But I think you’re missing the point which is the suggestion this protest is somehow antis- Semitic is absurd.
