    When I reminded him of the special expertise he'd use to reveal the truth of the Forrestal story, he said "yeah, all that stuff they taught me about the jets was probably wrong, too."

    Because that makes a lot of sense. The Navy really benefits from making sure their mechanics don't know how airplanes work. 

  2. Some people have issues with them in computers that have integrated graphics. Disabling the integrated graphics shouldn't be a big deal, I can't imagine needing them with a 2060. In my experience any nVidia card made since 2007 can run SL. 

    With the 3070 scheduled to drop next month, the deal on a 2060 would have to be really sweet for me to go for it today.

    Where do you see that?  This is what I see for someone that has made only one post - so definitely a 'Newbie':

    I saw it on someone's icon yesterday, but not today. If they're still fiddling around, it would be great if they took that informative sidebar for posts with a bunch of replies off mobile devices. It's not a big deal on a 27" monitor, but a quarter of the screen on an iPad is a lot.

    wearing masks can help yes. So if one chooses not to wear a mask and those that choose to wear a mask do, then the maskless cannot spread it to those that are wearing one. And if one relys on the 'government' to tell them a global pandemic on a novel virus is serious, then they need to re-examine their entire life.  

    Sure, if the mask I'm wearing is an N95 respirator. Which are still virtually impossible to buy.

    What I rely on the government to do in a global pandemic is not to actively undermine the efforts of public health workers, state and local government by lying about it. Unfortunately I live in the United States and that's something I can't rely on because Americans are collectively the stupidest people in the world.

    I would like to know how many people died of COVID or at least spent time in the ICU because 'never trumper' forces waged a war on hydroxychloroquine

    I doubt there's a global never trumper cabal squelching COVID-19 research because they don't like him. 

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/?term=hydroxychloroquine+covid-19

    You know what does prevent the spread of coronavirus? Wearing masks and not lying to people about how serious it is.

    I do not remember hearing or reading anything about greenhouse warming back then but if as you say the articles were 6 times more prevalent then the global cooling ones, it should be easy to trot out a list of them here like I did for the cooling camp.

    Yes, that was certainly a comprehensive summary of the scientific literature on the climate research of the day.

    The article seems credible. Arielle misunderstood it or, more likely, didn't read it. Here's an excerpt from the article...

    Credible articles can be found on credible web sites. If someone won't go to the insignificant effort of finding the original source instead of posting a link to a crank magnet site like Breitbart, Infowars or Rense, their citations should be dismissed out of hand.

    Well maybe that is because oil does not take millions of years but rather decades. Old wells which were pumped dry a few decades ago are now found to have refilled to some degree: https://rense.com/general63/refil.htm

    Rense.com is like Infowars for people who think Infowars is the mainstream media. I'll bet that paper is even more compelling when you see the original manuscript written in crayon.

    The problem with that graph is that it shows neither the high temperatures prevalent in the 1930's nor the .3C cooling period in the 60's and 70's when we had the great coming Ice age scare that was the scientific consensus at the time.

    I suppose it pretty easy to fudge data points when the political will is to rewrite history, the only downside being when there are still people alive who remember those time periods.

    The graph isn’t wrong, you are.

    And the answer is somewhere between those extremes.  Nothing is as simple as the absolutes we use to mark the ends of our playing field.  😉

    It’s a lot closer to one end then the other.

    I do have a RTX 2070 could be because of the recent update cause before it was working fine.........and will that effect the graphics in general of my PC?

     

    If you aren't using the Intel graphics, it shouldn't effect anything else.

    For some reason the Earth's temperature had dropped from 1896 to mid 20th century which no doubt led to the fears back then that we were headed for another ice age. That was in spite of C02 increases over the same time period.
