How?

Post by robinson »

It’s not hard when a matter is a non political one

But if it’s a matter of faith and belief, very very hard

How what?

Maybe start by trying to convey your thoughts clearly. It's an idea.

I think your auto-tensioner is failing. You're slipping.

BTW, is the subject line of this thread some sort of allusion to a certain stereotypical notionally indigenous North American greeting?

I think your AGW thread was good, turgid and stultifying, but good.

Thing is I don't care so I didn't read it all. And if you don't take a position of some sort, it leaves an audience, at the end, smiling unsurely and saying oooooooookkkkkkkkkkkaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Like waddaya want from me? What is there to discuss? Even if I cared, what am I going to write about? Ancient carbon levels? Really?
Here is a fact: the Ruger .204 shoots so flat that I can shoot it thru a 100 yard long pvc pipe and not hit the walls.

Do you know what that would do to a fag climatologist? Contemplate that for a moment.

And compared to a much less powerful gun, is there a difference in time before the bullets hit the ground?

If so, what is it? And why?
