Fat privilege is having a neck four times bigger than a normal human so you can pass the tape test submitted by The_Monarch to fatpeoplehate

When you're on deployment, you either get jacked and ripped or fat as shit. And if you're at an isolated FOB you only have a tiny gym, if that. I deployed for 6 months, and there was absolutely nothing to do, except work out at this smelly gym or go to the chow hall. My base was great in that you had somewhere to run, but that was rare. And they have some AMAZING fucking food at chow halls on some bases. Lobster nights, steak nights, build a massive sandwich section, like 10 different ice cream flavors, salad bars, omelette's, etc.. On holidays they would even bring in a cake that was probably 50 square feet. It was insane.

The fastest ship in the universe submitted by jamprin to pics

Considering all the other variables like firepower, style, and size, the Winnebago from Space Balls is clearly the best ship of the bunch.

A long rant about my family that got me banned from another site. Was told to come here so here I go. submitted by SkinnyTwig to fatpeoplehate

Don't let your family weigh you down.

Average Reading Levels of comments from 7 news and media sites (Voat, Reddit, Infowars, Foxnation, MSNBC, Politico, Guardian) submitted by sarcastasaur to dataisbeautiful

yes, you're right. It's not perfect by any means. I intend to do something similar with similar news stories on each different site to get more and better sample data. However, I do think the graph gives a ballpark view of the type of users that frequent those sites. (The comments I took for the Voat info were particularly inaccurate; quite a bit of the text came from a single user). I have used this the readability site before to analyze literature, and it is generally consistent with what you'd expect. For example, 50 shades of Gray scored somewhere on the 5th or 6th grade level, To Kill a Mockingbird was around the 9th, and one of Orwell's essays was around the 14th grade level.

Warming of oceans due to climate change is unstoppable, say US scientists submitted by sarcastasaur to news

We will be here 25 years from now, 100, and 10,000 years. The difference is that any warming from carbon dioxide effects many other natural systems on earth, which could throw the planet out of whack. let's say just from CO2 the planet warms 1 deg C. this causes a bit more ice to melt, which causes more ocean area, which causes more sunlight to be absorbed (and less reflected by ice). Fundamentally earth is a delicate and complicated system that can be thrown out of whack easily, and we should be aware of this, and how it can screw us over in many ways and make life much harder for us down the road. Solution? The most important thing is that we need to all understand that this is a problem and must be addressed. That's the real solution. Like all things ignorance and lack of curiosity is our worst enemy, and our inability to come to terms with simple scientific facts screws us over. (And the same 'climate tards' you mention, are the exact same guys who are able to send a probe on a 2 billion miles journey to Pluto. If you have enough scientific training and ability to do that, I'm pretty sure they are qualified to make weather forecasts on earth.)

And of course, the same people who discount climate change are the same types of people who get their weather forecast from a groundhog, and ignore what a trained scientist has to say on the matter.

climate scientists and rocket scientists both work for NASA, which is firmly aware of the reality of the dangers of climate change. (i.e, scientifically literate people overwhelming agree with the dangers of climate change, and deniers are overwhelmingly scientifically illiterate people, like Jim Inhofe.) C'mon.. If you had a health problem, I'm pretty sure you would seek the advice of a trained doctor rather than an uneducated quack.

Will a carbon tax fix it? No, but it would help. There is no single solution here.
