When arguing with an SJW... this is how you know you've won. submitted by PorchMonkey to funny

If you're arguing with a SJW you've already lost. The only outcome of the argument will be your lost time.

Muslim babysitter decapitates young girl in Moscow; Reddit response... "The real victim here is not the girl. It's the muslim community that will be viciously attacked by islamophobia fueled hatred." submitted by dildonkers to MeanwhileOnReddit

RayLomas 0 points 83 points (+83|-0) ago

In this case it's just one moron. To be honest, other redditors replied with a bit of sanity, like:

What a awful comment - the girl (and her family) are definitely real victims.


Did you forget the /s or something?

And a bit more emotionally, but still understandably:

I fucking hate you

'Alien megastructure' could surround giant star baffling scientists looking for new planets submitted by SarMegahhikkitha to Worldnews

I'll x-post a part of my comment from v/space, as the article here is a bit clickbaity

A more objective article on that topic:

Original study:

KIC 8462852 star is located 1500 LY from us - it pretty much excludes all means of communication, and travel between earth and that system is completely out of the question, even with best hypothetical technology (for example Alpha Centauri system is kinda-doable, with nuclear propulsion and 80 years-long mission).

The star itself is an F3 main sequence star - slightly larger and brighter than sun. Unfortunately, such stars emit more UV, and live shorter than G stars (our sun), which makes it a less likely spot for intelligent life to arise.

The structure hypothetically may be a Dyson Swarm rather than Dyson Sphere. Dyson Swarms would be much easier to build, while still capturing a ton of energy from the star. Dyson Sphere has 2 main issues - 1) it requires ridiculous amounts of materials to build; 2) it requires active propulsion, to avoid falling into star, since unlike any amount orbiting satellites, its position around star isn't stable.

Man's car breaks down in Baltimore and gets attacked while calling AAA. His familly is in the car. Sorry for Dailymotion link. submitted by I_like_paint to videos

"Man's car breaks down"

I call fake - the depicted car is a Honda. They should have used a Fiat or Chevrolet.

[edit] - Judging from the votes, we have 10 Chevy/Fiat drivers and 3 Honda-Master-Race members ;)

Gene editing can now change an entire species -- forever | Jennifer Kahn submitted by Maxcactus to science

When someone named Khan Kahn starts talking about genetic modification, it sounds a bit worrisome.
