Human intuition seems generally unaware that time passes, instead viewing everything as being just as it always was. This is why we’re so surprised at how old we are looking in the mirror, and anxious thinking about our eventual deaths. It’s also why we say dumb shit like “Sunnis and Shi’ites have been fighting for thousands of years!”
Curt Schilling’s tweet: “It’s said only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How’d that go?” wouldn’t make his point even if the numbers were accurate. Unless Curt Schilling is suggesting discrimination against Muslims is the only way to be effective against Muslim terrorists because discriminating against Germans is such an effective way of dealing with Nazis…. which would be a little weird for a guy named Curt Schilling.
Say what you like about Jeb Bush, he’s remained consistent on his promises pretty much all campaign. For example, his position that he has to lose the primary to win the general is right on track!
In a weird way, it shows how much progress feminism has made that misogynists now need to claim women secretly want to be oppressed.
Isaac Newton must have been so frustrated when he couldn’t figure out alchemy. Understanding planetary motion had been simple! Why was turning lead into gold so difficult?
It’s inaccurate to say that pandas are “poorly evolved” because they only survive due to human intervention. Evolution doesn’t care about how you survive! Being cute enough that people want to save you is a great evolutionary adaptation.
Why hasn’t their popularity faded? Didn’t we expect them to collapse months ago? How are there still supporters who don’t realize how terrible this is? Donald Trump: the ISIS of candidates.
