Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: When you're dealing with two bodies moving through space without a fixed reference point, you could say either one is revolving around the other

some_beer_drinker: seriously? wow, Americans are pretty retarded.
shoegaze99: some_beer_drinker: seriously? wow, Americans people are pretty retarded.Similar polls have been done in other countries, with similar results. People are stupid all over. For example, many people in Iceland believe elves actually exist.This is not unusual, nor is is particularly American. People are stupid all over.
GAT_00: Nobody has ever gone broke underestimating the stupidity of the American people.
oldfarthenry: [i1151.photobucket.com image 180x180]Fat, stupid & American is no way to go through life, son.
JackieRabbit: USA! USA! USA!Oh, look, a Walmart! Let's go to the Sarah Palin book signing.
powhound: Believing in UFO's isn't a stretch. I wish one would come take me from this crazy planet.
snocone: Yuuup, pretty much, half of the population is of below average intelligence.
halfof33: GiantRex: That might be the most scathing column I have ever read. I can hardly wait to see the shiatstorm this thread will inevitably become./your popcorn, go get it[frathousesports.net image 350x350]I wouldn't worry about it, for several reasons:1. the author is a smarmy dick2. his "blog" sucks3. quoting "surveys" is about as intellectually lazy a writing style as one could possibly imagine.4. STRAW MEN, STRAW MEN EVERYWHERE!Ask yourself a serious question: have you ever answered a social survey seriously? Of course not:Do I believe in Unicorns (what a stupid question) hell yeah! Sure I do, idiot farking "survey" taker.That way grossly lazy "intellectual liberals" can write grossly lazy, pandering blogs for people who enjoy the pandering.For a writer, he is one hell of a yoga teacher.
m00: "...asked almost exclusively by intellectual liberals because intellectual conservatives don't actually exist."There we go...
durbnpoisn: I'm going to take the approach here that the select group of people interviewed do not really represent the populace of the US in general. Like, they went directly to the backwoods of Kentucky, or the deep south, or some shiat. If I were to run a similar survey just in the Northeast, or in California, or even farking Detroit, the numbers would look nothing like that.
rufus-t-firefly: Since we have 300 million people, and 200 million privately-owned firearms, shouldn't our murder rate be REALLY low?
Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: St_Francis_P: I think most people realize that cloud computing requires man-made clouds; the natural ones can't hold enough data. I'm sure they use something like the artificial snow machines at ski resorts.Now the concept of "real cloud" computing fascinates me. Could you actually store data in a mist? What happens when it rains? Would stratus clouds hold less data than cumulus clouds?
The Snow Dog: powhound: Believing in UFO's isn't a stretch. I wish one would come take me from this crazy planet.I wish authors were smart enough not to use "UFO" interchangeably with "alien spacecraft." You'd be a moron to deny UFOs exist. Alien spacecraft? Notsomuch.
Raharu: That way grossly lazy "intellectual liberals" can write grossly lazy, pandering blogs for people who enjoy the pandering.
Voiceofreason01: Wait, why did the author pick on Kansas? Is this one of those "flyover country" things where we pretend that a large portion of the country doesn't count because some people live there that have opinions that we disagree with? How "progressive"./Mark Morford sounds like a douchbag
hardinparamedic: I'm sure they exist SOMEWHERE in the Universe. But to say they've visted a backwater planet which hasn't discovered Arcturian 10D Ultraporn yet? Nah.
