  • Commented on Houston: what are the long-term consequences?
    Its a particle ... no its a wave. They're both correct, just in different contexts. However, I don't think that using a population figure for an incorporated city and purposefully excluding the 5+ million people living in the surburbs of...
  • Commented on Houston: what are the long-term consequences?
    > slew of propaganda equivalences You're too subtle for me. > entire conceptual framework Postulating that someone as dull-witted and brutish as I even has a conceptual framework is asserting facts not in evidence. Why, most people question what my...
  • Commented on Houston: what are the long-term consequences?

  • Commented on Houston: what are the long-term consequences?
