    1. Which was/is 'your' side? I identify more with the cause of the Union, but I had ancestors who fought on both sides.

    AFAIK lower solar output is correlated with cooler temperatures, but the variation is in terms of a few tenths of a degree.

    If I'd have to guess, I'd say outright racists make up about 5-10% of the population, but it's hard to tell. I think a lot of racial issues have to do with implicit bias, which is a much trickier...

    But the statue memorializes soldiers for their fighting in a war specifically for the preservation of slavery. I agree with Leonhard on this, keep the Confederate statues in history museums, where...

    The whole gay wedding cake debate. I mean it's not that I have no interest at all in it, but I just don't care much one way or the other.

    I do think it's a shame climate change advocates haven't done more advocacy for nuclear power. Even if you don't believe in significant anthropogenic global warming, you've got to admit that nuclear...

    If the other guy has a knife, wouldn't it be mano a cuchillo?
    I guess guns do have the benefit of their power not being as much a function of strength as a sword or bow.

    If gunmen can't get guns in the first place, maybe many of them will be unable to commit atrocities with a gun.

    Right, but I don't see why people should continue to profit off of stuff their great-grandma wrote eighty years after she's dead. I'm not too big a fan of massive amounts of inheritance in general.

    Well AFAIK it should (according to law) expire in 95 years at the latest, but Wikipedia says it still goes back to January 1, 1923 (not June 4, 1923). And why shouldn't it be free, if the owner is...

    AFAIK they haven't extended the copyright law yet. So does anyone know when stuff will start falling into the public domain again?

    That seems horrible. When I'm in North Carolina for the summer, my driving commute is something like 18 minutes during rush hour and 13 minutes if it's not rush hour. In the entire Chapel Hill/Durham...

    Oh I didn't realize they had been doing it on coins since the 1860s. But it doesn't look like it was done on many bills until the 1950s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_God_We_Trust

    In 2016 the murder rate in the US was 5.35 per 100,000 and in the UK it was 1.20 per 100,000. I seriously doubt you'd be killed if you went there, especially assuming you follow common sense safety...

    Not necessarily. I lean to the left (in the U.S. at least), and I think that after about 20 weeks or so an abortion should only be legal when medically necessary. I feel strongly that first trimester...
