    They don't?

    Then why would you give "figures" for "one particular year" yourself?

    The true point is that the figures for any one LOCATION don't matter when talking about the annual average of global temperatures. You could have a location hitting 40°C for weeks on end and if the majority of the globe is cooler than average for the year then the globe would be cooling, not warming. Taking the temperature at one particular location and then trying to use it to either prove OR disprove global warming is a fool's game.

    For a look at how 2015 compared to the average of 1981-2010's years, look here:

    https://www.climate.gov/maps-data/data-snapshots/tempanomaly-annual-nnvl-2015-00-00?theme=Temperature

    The majority of the globe is 6°F or 7°F warmer than the average established only a couple of decades ago. The most obvious cause is the El Nino in the Pacific, but why is that El Nino lasting as long as it is?

    The reason Uber and Lyft are encouraging this is obvious: With autodrive cars, they don't have to worry about deviant drivers working for them. There was an article the other day in the Washington Post titled, "Why is my Uber driver breathing into a tube while driving?" Somebody had an Uber driver whose car had an ignition interlock because the owner of the car (he insisted it was a friend's car) had been convicted of drunk driving and the ignition interlock was part of their sentence. Uber can eliminate such negative publicity if they go to autodrive vehicles.

    The singularity IS the "black hole". The boundary where light no longer escapes is called the "event horizon", but there's nothing between that boundary and the singularity itself except for the remains of whatever is falling into the singularity.

    WTF the government should be testing all new vehicles, the results of there test need to be used by automakers as there benchmarks. automakers using there own results for testing is just asking for trouble as we see now with Mitsubishi. its taken 25 years!! for anybody to catch on or in this case blow the whistle on there corruption, sadly this is the tip of the iceburg and will continue until the J gov comes down hard on these fools. when fines/punishments are less than the monetary gains by there deception theyll continue to do it. Although Mitsubishi shares have landed in the shtter as a result. no better way to pull a company in line when its shareholders are psed at losing on there investments

    Normally I try to avoid being the Grammar Nazi, but seriously, dude!

    Now the US news reports that Prince may have died of a pain killer overdose.

    And he may NOT have died from an overdose. The autopsy results aren't expected for three more weeks, at least, so anything being put out by "news" sources regarding Prince's death at this time are pure speculation for the purpose of trying to bring in more viewers/readers.

    Isn't the term 'Black Hole" really a misnomer?

    It's a colloquialism applied to singularities... because "singularity" doesn't register with most people.

    Deja Vu. The Europeans did the same thing to Microsoft because THEY were too dominant and any feature they tried to add to add value to their product was considered "anti-competitive". Apparently in Europe nobody can do anything to improve their offering once they've achieved dominance in the market. They have to sit idle until the competitors catch up.

    What blather. Does that mean pretend like you're an ugly obnoxious hag? Really, the stereotypes people espouse.

    LOL! I see what you did there.

    Particularly the parts about "general etiquette dictates to avoid any unnecessary noise or speaking while chewing" and "it is considered proper style to elegantly lift items from their dishes, instead of bringing the dishes all the way up to the face."

    To be fair, they specify "chewing" and not "slurping" (as in what you find in any ramen shop).

    China created the divided Korea in the first place. What defense does kj-il need anyway?

    Actually I believe it was the Soviet Union and the United States that created the divided Korea at the end of WWII. China stepped in to help defend North Korea during the Korean War.

    Just trying to avoid the creep of revisionist history.

    Opiods and opiates are different, Danny.

    Opiates (consisting of drugs directly derived from poppy seeds) are a sub-class of Opioids which are all drugs - natural or synthetic - that provide an effect similar to the opiate sub-class. So by definition opiates are opioids.

    ^^^ I have to agree. Anyone with an American passport entering North Korea may as well put on the prison stripes immediately, because the authorities will charge you with stealing state secrets even if you just walk down the street.

    "Remote from reality and unable to see how crazy they are"? Here's the reality... drive on any road and easily 50% of the drivers you pass are either talking on their cellphone or glancing down at it while operating a multi-thousand pound hunk of steel and flammable liquids. THAT'S "crazy". How many times have you observed a driver speeding up to enter an intersection just after the traffic light has turned red? THAT'S "crazy". How many times have you witnessed some young driver acting out his/her Formula 1 fantasies by weaving in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed? THAT'S "crazy".

    Autodrive cars won't do any of those things. If anything, putting autodrive cars on the road injects a HUGE dose of sanity!

    If they can find out why the solar panels apparently "came adrift", then hopefully the next launch won't meet a similar fate. Not everything goes according to plan and some failures are epic in scale. Remember the Mars probe that faceplanted onto the Mars surface because someone forgot to convert Imperial units to Metric when sending trajectory data? You don't give up, you try again.

    Avoiding flatulence by tourists means a major diet change... something most people aren't going to bother with while on vacation.

    Adding that he was an artist i think he deserves a good bit of leeway, especially when the people slagging him on here are probably downing a good safe socially acceptable drug as the type.

    Not I. And there's a difference between non-prescription (your "good safe socially acceptable") drugs and prescription drugs like opioids. From Wiki:

    The term opiate should be differentiated from the broader term opioid, which includes all drugs with morphine-like effects, including opiates, semi-synthetic opioids derived from opiates (such as heroin, hydrocodone, hydromorphone, oxycodone, and oxymorphone), and synthetic opioids which are not derived from opiates (such as fentanyl, buprenorphine, and methadone). All opioids, including the opiates, are considered drugs of high abuse potential and are listed under the Controlled Substances Act of the United States.

    This stuff is highly addictive when the patient is allowed to self-dose.

    “As a close neighbor of the peninsula, we will absolutely not permit war or chaos on the peninsula. This situation would not benefit anyone,” Xi said in a speech to a Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia.

    We'll see what Xi has to say for an excuse the next time N.K. decides to shell S.K. villages or torpedo S.K. ships. It's one thing to say you "won't permit" it. It's quite another thing to actually prevent it from happening.

    Sea level is uniform,

    Ever since the moon started orbiting the Earth, sea level has not been uniform. (Think "tides")

    Apparently, he suffered from stage fright and had been using oPiAte pills and patches since 1984 to help him relax at shows. He wasn't using to get high or escape reality but just to help him overcome stage fright.

    That's a plausible story... IF the meds aren't found in his bloodstream during the autopsy.

    But are these criminals really so bad? I've heard they also do relief work after disasters.

    So because they went to help family members caught in the disaster, we should ignore their criminal activity? More than likely, the relief work is another scam opportunity.
