"I swear to god if you have a light switch don't talk to me. You're no better than the milk drinkers." submitted by watitdew to funny

I know. It's a small but meaningful distinction I wish more people knew or cared about.

For those that may not know when you say "electrocuted" that means death by electric shock. The word she should have used was "shocked".

Is anyone else bothered that it should have counted as a 3 pointer instead of just two? Final score should be 51-49.

Why Did Greenland's Vikings Vanish? submitted by Professor_de_la_Paz to science

moginspace 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago

TL;DR: The theory is that there was as combination of factors. According to the article:

  1. Vikings went there for primarily for the walrus ivory and were partially dependent on Europe & Norway trade to sustain their colonies.
  2. Economic factors about ivory trade changed in Europe and walrus ivory wasn't as valuable as elephant ivory flooding the market from Portugal and Spain
  3. Black death killed half of Norway's population reducing the trade with and support of the Greenland colonies
  4. Climate change brought on by Indonesia volcano explosion in 1200's triggered a climate cooling and harshened the Greenland environment

So living in a much harsher environment with not as much support and not as much pay forced the colonists to relocate. It worked for a while but different factors lead to settlement's abandonment. Evidence suggests an orderly abandonment, back to nearby Iceland or Norway.

You probably haven't seen this in a while here's what it says when you try to downvoat without enough creds:

Tip: a good way to earn more contribution points is to take part in discussions or say hi in /v/introductions.

So I'm saying hi in v/introductions, but yeah I will need to diversify.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson says this new video may contain the 'most important words' he's ever spoken--decline in scientific literacy is a "recipe for the complete dismantling of our informed democracy" submitted by rspix000 to politics

"But in this, the 21st century, when it comes time to make decisions about science, it seems that people have lost the ability to judge what is true and what is not."

And

The role of science, Tyson says, is to provide the factual grounding for politics. The role of politics is to decide what to do about those facts.

I didn't say that he said those exact words but that was the 'gist' of what he was saying. Surely we could agree on the gist of his argument given the quotes above from the article. If we can't agree on that, well then that's another story.

Why we haven't gone to Mars yet in one terrifying picture. submitted by parnellsUprising to funny

We might already be there if the middle ages hadn't happened the way they did. The church held back scientific progress for hundreds of years because they wanted power instead of the betterment of mankind.

Imagine the technology humanity could have by the year 2300. That's what we're missing out on right now.
