Also, ST's theory of Russian propaganda efforts got some validation today from the vice president of Facebook ads which I found out about because of Trump's tweet on that topic.
Another pointless, meaningless post.

Who the fuck is "ST"?
What the fuck is "ST's theory"?
What the fuck is "some validation"?

Of course you can't/won't.
How long ago did you answer it? Got any keywords we can use to find your post?
Here.
Let me help:
Leave them alone.  Or at a minimum, regulate their hunting / capture for zoos / etc so as to ensure viable populations for the future.  Let's get real specific here ... I have firsthand knowledge of TWO ecosystems - the one where I live now - I'm told it can be classified as an Oak Savannah ... and the equatorial Amazon Rain Forest, where I lived as a child and have made two trips back when I was older.  If my ideas spread much before I die, they will likely spread in these two areas ... one of the main drivers for me getting into this agriculture stuff in the first place was my dad's request of me to "help the Wai Wai people feed themselves sustainably." 

Now we've talked quite a bit about my location in Missouri ... but we've only briefly discussed the Amazon Rain Forest.  Before I actually propose anything formal to any authorities in that region - and it would most likely be the Guyana government that I speak to first - I would study the ecological / agricultural history of the region.  I have bits and pieces, but I want to know more.  I'm particularly interested in the Meggers - Roosevelt debate highlighted by by good buddy Charles C. Mann about whom I've spoken before.

One of the big attractions of this forum for me is my fascination with people who have loads of University education saying some of the stupidest things I've ever heard in my life.
One of the big attractions for me is watching you exercise the hell out of

Afdave's Fourth Law:
Unanswerable questions are invisible.


...Cody Holmes...
So how does Holmes "HMG" his goats?
At what density does he "bunch" them, and how does he "move" them?

These goats look like they have quite a bit more freedom (and space) than the inmates of goatschwitz:



Are they just taking a break from "HMG" at the moment this photo was taken?

Hey people who follow the law on these matters...
This - from a year ago - came as news to me:

Assault Weapons Not Protected by Second Amendment, Federal Appeals Court Rules

Is this not a big deal?

...
I hope to conduct some experiments along these lines in southern Guyana based out of the village that I visited in 2011.
:rofl:

Will that be before or after your helium-zircon experiments?
Or your mouse endotoxin experiments?
Or your lactose research project?

Absolute 100% truth is an ideal that we should strive for. Obviously no one can achieve it perfectly. But certainly all of us could do better. ...
Well your boy Trump could certainly have done a hell of a lot better.
For instance, when he claimed yesterday
Quote
the Special Counsel's investigation further indicates--that there was NO COLLUSION between the Trump campaign and Russia and that the outcome of the election was not changed or affected.
... that's an absolute 100% lie.

That's part of the problem with people these days I think is they say oh yeah that's for those other people but not for me.

  Massive changes that I am aware of (within the last 2000 years) are the result of man's activities, not Mother Nature's.
You think the Viking farms on Greenland were abandoned because they were doing agriculture wrong?

Less-than-100%-truth is so pervasive that it makes your head spin when you really stop and think about it.

Trump's tweet also insisted that "The results of the election were not impacted." This, too, is a matter on which the indictment remains silent. Rosenstein did state publicly today that "there is no allegation in the indictment of any effect on the outcome of the election." But this a very different claim than the notion that it did not affect the election. The document makes no such claim.
It never fails to astound me that this talking point keeps getting repeated with a straight face.  I suspect - no joke -  it is being actively boosted by the St. Petersburg troll farm. The suggestion is either that propaganda, in general, can't / doesn't influence elections, or that this particular propaganda effort was so infinitesimal that not a single vote was changed.  Both patently absurd assertions.

The most charitable interpretation of it is that people parroting this line are equivocating between "It didn't change who won" (unknowable, but highly questionable, given the closeness of the election) and "there was zero impact" (patently false).

You can always tell who the idiots are because they can't explain the thing they are pretending they know a lot about.
I've got news for you:

"Bunch. Move. Rest." doesn't really explain anything.
14
Same with Chinese colleagues!  They send brilliant manuscripts with brilliant maths, and sometimes my job is just to sort out the articles!
I have many Chinese colleagues too.
Same deal.
Only with "Chinese English" there are many more issues than just the articles.
The whole system of inflected verbs, for instance, is hard for them to grasp.
(For some reason they tend to use present participles for all forms of a verb.)

15
Don't you know what the word "unwitting" means?
Here's my theory. The Russians chose Trump as a unwitting tool because they thought he would damage America. A lot of damage would be done by just having him run. Whatever works to have Americans fighting Americans instead of Putin is good. More damage would be done if he would win, so they tried to help make this come about. With "fake news", an army of idiots, and some bots, on social media, wannabe Nazis and some paid help from within the campaign. No collusion from Trump himself required.
This is pretty much what I think too.
But the Don Jr. meeting with the stated goal of collecting Russian dirt on HRC - if nothing else - puts at least the campaign squarely in collusion territory. And, as Bannon noted, there is 0% possibility Don Jr. didn't discuss that meeting with Dad.
16
On a side note: I talk with many people from Russia and other former USSR countries at work. They often can't speak Greek and I don't speak Russian, so we discuss in English.

I've NEVER heard anyone do the pseudo-stereotypical "no articles" accent. It just doesn't occur.

Why the hell is that woman tweeting that way?
I have Russian colleagues I work with closely day to day.
They've been in this country decades, and have thoroughly mastered English.
( I sure as hell haven't mastered Russian! )
But they DO frequently leave out the articles.
In editing manuscripts we're jointly working on, I very often have to insert the correct article.
17
that's awesome except for the, um, documented collusion between the campaign and the russians. I mean, team MAGA may not have known the scope of the apparatus they enlisted to aid them but they definitely knew who it was that was offering them dirt on their opponents and what the quid pro quo was. Congress did, after all, feel the need to block the president's ability to negotiate on the sanctions. That would be a GOP congress.
You're a lunatic
::)   Another roll of the " I got nuthin'  :o  " die.

There is nothing Testy wrote there that is even controversial.
But since you are so clueless that it comes as news to you that Trump has repeatedly said that the Russian interference in the election was a hoax - has, in fact, said he believes Putin's denials - it's not terribly surprising that you're clueless on this, too.
18
Blocking may be a strong word, but he has:

1) Fired the person in charge of the investigation on very flimsy grounds.
Those flimsy grounds being the cover letter Sessions and Rosenstein provided.
The real grounds, of course, were the grounds he candidly admitted to Lester Holt.
And to Lavrov and Kislyak.

You really are a special kind of idiot.
No it's you that's a special kind of idiot.

Ya gotta love it when Hawkins gets deservedly insulted, then starts IKYABWAI-ing it back like a demented parrot.

the indictment today proves there was not Trump Russia collusion.
No.
It does not.

Rubbed any more of your own shit in your daughters face yet?
That WOULD "enhance" the ecosystem of her face, by his definition!

Faid when I say that nature Knows Best I am specifically saying that "Nature knows best How to not destroy ecosystems and also how to enhance them" which to me means greater biodiversity, higher numbers of life forms, Etc

Related to this observation is the secondary observation that mankind is the only species that I know of that is able to destroy ecosystems.

Do you agree with these two general observations?
So when I talk about enhancing an ecosystem or destroying an ecosystem I'm talking about increasing or decreasing the number of species and the species diversity per unit area or we could say we are increasing or decreasing the number of living cells per unit area. I think either one works.
One exception... Humans. Human cells or human individuals. My definitions only work for Non human Species.
No. They don't work there either.

... The fact that these people think Obama and Hillary (for some reason) are going to jail because the FBI might not have given as much information as it should have about its sources when applying for a FISA warrant is just so far removed from reality I can't even imagine how one gets there.
Well of course there's much more to it than that. Our hypothesis is that Obama himself along with Hillary conspired to throw a presidential election.

As hypotheses go, this is right up there with "Clinton and Podesta ran a child sex ring out of a DC pizzeria" - which you have also declared to be a "scientific" hypothesis.

Also, do you know what it means to "throw" an election?
