    The Space Exploration Achievements Thread

    https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/mars-nasa-announcement-latest-organic-matter-red-planet-a8388591.html Basically we found ancient space poop But it means something was around to make that, recently or in the far distant past
  2. IIRC there was also a 1951 or '52 Supreme Court case that does permit grounds to armed revolt, though only if there's evidence of suppressing voting rights by the federal government(i.e. clear evidence of tyrannical government). Similar to the preceding but then contemporary Battle of Athens, Tennessee Cannot remember the name of it though

    United States Gun Control Megathread

    Reminds me of a point I saw regarding this incident brought up on one of the pro-gun subreddits. It was a comment made by a pro-gun user (who was recalling an argument they had with an anti-gunner) about the whole "good guy with a gun stops mass shootings" thing, and the definition of mass shootings is flexed in such a manner in the media that by the definition there's a significant amount of victims as the baseline. So incidents like in Oklahoma are just single actors stopping individual criminals, but as school shootings continue the "good guys with guns" will "forever" fail to protect the many children harmed in these incidents. Ergo, gun proliferation in the general population is useless for protecting people.
  4. I liked the first few movies, but this franchise needs to be put out to pasture

    Apparently the guy had tried jumping the fence at the White House last year, so his guns were seized by Illinois police His dad asked them back nicely and promised he wouldn't let his son get em, and apparently....let him have em anyways
  9. Russia Today is pushing a claim from a Swiss lab that the nerve agent used on that former Russian spy in Britain is actually a US/UK developed compound Of course, it's Russia Today so...where would you like me to place the jar of salt?

    It's been making the rounds on the gun subreddits. /u/kareems is making some clarifications if anyone has criticisms. Also, allegedly a user on /r/liberalgunowners is claiming some NICS reform was slipped into the spending omnibus bill

    I wish I could see the source data for that last graph. It's been floating around since the parkland shooting but while there is data on Wikipedia from 2013 that seems like it could back the graph, it places the per capita ownership rate of American firearms much lower which makes it seem less concrete. I would believe the graph for modern per capita ownership, but where on Wikipedia that data came from is unclear.

    She's also a manifestation of the cosmic force like Anakin was, apparently So now there's grounds she might take the helm in the chosen one prophecy as well

    The Star Wars General Discussion Thread

    So the explanation Disney is pushing in their new book as to why Rey has such skills with a lightsaber and the force in TLJ is because she basically downloaded them from Kylo's brain when they had Force Skype calls
  21. There's also the fact that the DNC is barely skimming by on campaign funds ATM Whereas the RNC is breaking records with donations
