It is laughable that you speak about “Reblagicans” and “their disrespect for authority”. You are obviously a Hillary or Bernie supporter. Hillary respects authority of the Constitution so much that she commits treason acts by allowing classified information to be emailed to people (and hacked by foreign governments), gets one of our ambassadors killed & then lies her canckles off about it, all while using her position as Jabba of State & giving special favors for money. Bernie respects authority of the Constitution so much that he wants to abolish it & go to government control of every aspect of our lives.
“If ye love … the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

I’m guessing you didn’t read the full article. He issued a threat to start with. If you don’t think a threat is a criminal action, go tell someone you want to kill the Obama & see how fast you get picked up.
Now granted, she should not have gone and confronted him or thrown a drink in his face (remember the McDonald hot coffee case???) so both sides erred on the side of stupidity. However, he is the idiot that made the threat, that refused to accept a differing opinion (I don’t like trump, but respect the right of others to like him), and made slanderous remarks about her. He deserves expulsion according to the university’s Code of Conduct. She deserves some detention of throwing her drink.

They measured it from two colliding black holes as they are the most massive objects in space (galaxies are a cluster of objects). This would create the strongest graviton wave possible. If you’re looking for poop, it is easier to find elephant poop than hummingbird poop.
As for the existence of black holes, that has been known for a while.
You say “Gravity isn’t energy and energy release isn’t gravity”. If you throw a rock into a pond, mass displaces water by inertia (a body standing still stays still unless acted upon by an outside force) and causes ripples (waves) on the water. Gravity attracts two objects with a force proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between two objects. Gravity is a type of energy.
I guess you’re also convinced that dark matter doesn’t exist because we can’t measure that. My son had a teacher like you when he was in 5th grade. She told the class there were only 3-states of matter. He told her that there were 4-states (at the time) with Plasma being the 4th state. He got in trouble for disputing the teacher so I sent him back the next day with one of my science books that showed he was right & she was out of date. Teachers are supposed to teach children HOW to think, not WHAT to think.
Anyway, I disagree with you BumsNightmare.

Now that we can detect graviton waves, that opens up the door to build devices that can neutralize them (like using sound 180 degrees out of phase with noise to cancel it out in Bose headphones). That means we could eventually develop vehicles (both ground, air, and space going) that use graviton waves for propulsion. Hoverboards, flying cars, aircraft without wings, and fast spacecraft, all on the horizon. They are right, this is Big, VERY BIG!!!
Now, if we can just avoid WWIII, Socialists destroying innovation (how many great inventions came out of the USSR???), or Cankles taking R&D money & giving it to her minions.
Remember Einstein – “I don’t know what WW3 will be fought with, all I do know is that WW4 will be fought with sticks and stones”.

That is an awful lot of adult films she was in, the newest just last year. Yikes!
When I was young, we had a special status for people like you when I was a youngster in school, watching the Apollo missions on TV (our Teacher brought in her TV from home so we could see). Someone of your incredible caliber would get a seat all to themselves, facing the corner, with a conical hat to fit their pointed head with the label DUNCE, which I believe was an acronym for Dumb Unit No Credible Education.

Almighty ruler of the all
Whose power extends to great and small,
Who guides the stars with steadfast law,
Whose least creation fills with awe -
Oh grant Thy mercy and Thy grace
To those who venture into space.
- Robert Heinlein
Safe travels, brave explorer.

Lay off smoking those banana peels, they are really starting to affect your memory.

Wish I could give you multiple thumbs up. I am the same, Cruz will be on my ballot whether it is connect the bar or write in the name.

The founders designed the system so Senators were selected by the state legislature, not by popular vote. That gave the states more power in the federal system. Article 1, Section 3, Clause 1 & 2. Then the 17th Amendment turned the Senate into just another House of Representatives. It happened in 1912. Remember 1912, the election with a progressive candidate on both sides? Glenn just talked about that election on the 3rd.

So if you like socialism so much, be sure and take 90% of your income and donate it to the IRS on your 2015 Tax Return. THEN you will know the joy of socialism up close and personal.

@CatB – “You are known by your friends…”
That is quite interesting coming from someone that is voting Trump, whose friends are Hillary, Slick Willy, Nancy, & Harry.

I liked Rand Paul until got got caught spooning with Mitch McConnell.
I liked Ben Carson until he opened his mouth & showed while he was a really smart neurosurgeon, he wasn’t good enough on the Constitution to be a good President. Maybe next time after he does more studying.
Cruz is where I am putting my vote, unless he does something really bad.

@justangry – What’s the difference between Cruz and Rubio?
If that is a serious question, just lay your head back down & go back to sleep.

Guess that makes him an establishment crony. Another “Conservative” erased from my “I respect you” list.
