Do you consider yourself a "nice" person? Careful, now:
Appropriate reaction to the successful lauch of the Orion space craft: THAT. WAS. AWESOME.
This is from the "paper of record" that publishes "all the news that's fit to print," so of course we must take it as 100 percent the gospel truth.
I realize it's mostly pointless to argue about "climate change," because it truly has become like a religion; you either believe in it or you do not, and logic and facts are not of much use when it comes to matters of faith.

Finally, something that isn't my fault:
Paris (AFP) - Chimpanzees can be lethally violent to each other but this stems from an inherent streak and not, as some have suggested, from human interference, a study said on Wednesday.
