Re: They find a Dyson Sphere (RAR!)

Not for quite some time, the Dyson Sphere is 800 years old at this point atleast, they won't be picking anything up for atleast 730 years. Ah, sorry, I just saw the 10ly figure lol. Still, I imagine that a society which can build a Dyson Swarm would at least have the tech required to spot Earth and...

Re: They find a Dyson Sphere (RAR!)

If we can see them, can they see us? Presumably they would have picked up our radio signals for some time? Could they have already launched something like a projectile at high speed to take us out?

Re: They find a Dyson Sphere (RAR!)

I expect the findings to be promptly challenged and dismissed by many conservatives. Especially religious groups. I imagine the debate would be even worse than the one on climate change, if that's possible.

Re: Doctor Who News: John Simm to return for multi-Master story.

You know, the Doctor's incarnations have trouble getting along with each other sometimes, I can only imagine that having two Masters in the same room together will inevitably cause some... friction. Given his massive ego I highly doubt John Simm's Master will want to regenerate, and he's a bit of a ...

Re: Right Wing Sexual Predators in politics and media

Could a chunk of it be related to their religion as well? Many of the RW commentators love pointing out how Christian they are, and, well, the Bible is not exactly known for its support of female equality.

Re: Bill O'Reilly shitcanned from Fox

My turn for a question: Suppose after all that, your daughter ends up meeting up with O-Reilly tomorrow and has consensual sex with him (the age of consent being 16 in Canada). You find out about it, and know that it was consensual (your daughter freely admitted to you as such and is not lying, or a...

Re: Bill O'Reilly shitcanned from Fox

if you had a daughter in her mid-late teens you wouldn't let her go anywhere alone with O'Reilly. Are you going to answer the question? It's a simple yes or no. I don't think I would be legally allowed to prevent a child 16 or over (aka mid-late teens) from meeting with whom she pleases, and if I u...

Re: Right Wing Sexual Predators in politics and media

I guess we might as well start with Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly, both having been recently fired from Fox. And to kick things off here's O'Reilly's "Falafel incident" from 2004, since that's the one we know the most about (as the plaintiff had filed a formal claim): OCTOBER 13--Today mar...

Re: Bill O'Reilly shitcanned from Fox

If and when O'Reilly admits to wrongdoing and/or he has been found in some formal process to have done wrong doing, I will be the first to happily join Flagg in his condemnations. Not before. Same for anyone else.

Re: Bill O'Reilly shitcanned from Fox

Note that this is different then say Trump, who has openly acknowledged things such as his "pussy-grabber" comment as having actually happened. As far as I am aware O-Reilly has denied all allegations thus far.
