  1. I hate these "we invented" arguments, Von Braun, Goddard and Korolev were all kinda in a three-way tie as far as rocketry was concerned, and none could get anyone to treat their work as anything other than an odd hobby.

    It wasn't until WW2 when Von Braun was able to get the backing of the Nazis that he got the furthest ahead. When US intelligence came to him after the war to seek his input as the preeminent world rocket expert, he reportedly was confused and asked, essentially "Did Goddard die or something? Why didn't you ask him these questions years ago? We knew this stuff back in the Depression Era...."

    Any "invention" is ultimately credited to who, amongst the pool of people who were all relatively close, gets to the patent office first.

    EDIT : Example, Alexander Bell beat Elisha Gray to the patent for the telephone by only an hour, hence the phone book in my house growing up said "Bell Atlantic" on it instead of "Grey Atlantic".

  2. Radio that does anything particularly useful started with Fessenden. Anything that resembles radio now? Edwin Armstrong.

    All those Paperclip scientists? Their work was based on Goddard's.

    There's no good delineation for any of these, really, but Europe taking credit for everything ever trying to claw back some dignity from when they were relevant is silly.

    Edit: beaten like Florida Man's wife.

  3. From SCOTUS to if Goddard invented air planes with a splattering of abortion rambling and mocking the ACLU.

    I fucking love KF.

  4. I know, it's a bit silly to claim any person was responsible for any of those "inventions" as really it's all basically "Standing on the shoulders of giants". I was actually just mad that you posted a big number that I don't understand how to get to.

  7. They were gonna bitch no matter who he nominated. And honestly, they should consider themselves lucky. This guy is pretty open-minded compared to some other candidates.

    Also, the fact that they're STILL terrified that someone is going to take their baby-murder away from them cracks me up for some reason. No one aside from religious fundies really cares, but they're still paranoid that everyone and their mother-in-law is after Roe v Wade...

  8. (Might be late posting here) The DNC just changed the rules so you have to be a member of the DNC to even run with them now. So he would have to run Thirdparty and third party has this small disadvantage called. No infrastructure.

  10. You'd think, it's almost like they had all these speeches and statement ready to counter the Religious Right wholeheartedly endorsing the Trump pick, and they release them without checking to see if the RR had in fact, said anything....

    The left hasn't yet noticed the the RR is as dead as Fred Phelps.

    The empty SJW platitudes of "This will hurt transwomen minorities" in every press release is as infuriating as the "This will hurt our moral foundation" that every Republican whined nonstop from 1990 to 2004 when it's not actually addressing the opposition, just bleating into the wind....

  11. I really want someone to just one day hold a poll asking whether people are plain tired of all the protests, the crying, the screeching, and the absolutely insanity these days.

    I bet the overwhelming answer to that poll would be FUCK. YES.

  12. Many of them are flat out lying for attention and social power. Exaggerating victimhood is the far left's trade now. Like a bratty, whimpering kid or a soccer player feigning a serious injury, it's all about manipulation.

    I really do think a lot of these whiners believe they'll get their way, politically, if they just keep throwing the tantrum long enough. If that's true, it says a lot of unflattering things about their mindset.

    Source Article | I'd link the rest here but they're linked in the quote.

    Jesus Christ where do you even begin with that train wreck? The confirmation hearing for Kavanaugh was such a monumental clusterfuck that it took me the better half of the night just to rummage through the stack and try to find some of the best parts, on top of the mountain of archiving that those assholes made me do just to preserve as much of that as I could find. For starters: More than 70 arrests were made, including the actress Piper Perabo (Whoever that is) and Linda Sarsour.

    A bunch of handmaidens showed up at one point and just loomed around on the second floor, Chuck Schumer himself admitted to helping coordinate all of this jack-fuckery, and some lady seated behind Kavanaugh was accused of flashing the "white power" symbol at the camera (And fun fact here: The O.K. symbol is actually sign language for "asshole!").

    One of the Parkland shooting victims' parents was at the hearing, and he stormed up to Kavanaugh to shake his hand, acting completely surprised that after several hours of having lunatics shriek in his ear and watching arrest after arrest, Kavanaugh would be somewhat hesitant to shake a random strangers hand. A lot of outlets (And politicians) are already putting the spin all over this aspect of the hearing, but they're leaving out one particularly important facet: Guttenberg was going there specifically to start shit. What was Guttenberg doing there in the first place? Feinstein invited him.

    That's not even everything that happened, either. That's just some of the highlights. I have never in my life seen any sort of hearing like this outside of third-world countries, and this was only day one of the hearings! What are they doing today? Are they going to have Schumer literally start pitching his own shit at Kavanaugh?

  16. It should be noted, the Judiciary Committee is where they send all the freshmen, as it is a pork-free committee and, thus, highly undesirable.
