Draculya Now, see? That's a brilliant comment. I mean, not nice and a little scary, but brilliant. This is why I love Drac.

johncourage To what policies enacted under the Hoover administration are you referring? If you have links, that would be helpful. Thanks.

Also, I can't help but remark on your other comment, where you wrote "people were kept afloat by government interference." People were kept afloat by government interference? You mean people were prevented from starving by soup kitchens? Is that what you're complaining about? If not, please clarify because it sounds like you're advocating social Darwinism.

johncourage To avoid confusion, let's conduct this discussion under your earlier, similar comment above. Thanks.

johncourage Wrong. I don't know where you're getting your history from. The Great Depression was in full force by 1933. And during the four years prior, President Herbert Hoover did precious little to "handle" it.

johncourage Bullfeathers. It is true. Taxidriver is correct. The stock market crashed in October 1929 and was followed by a rash of bank and business failures. Things got worse and worse until the economy hit its nadir in 1933, when nearly half of the nation's banks had failed and 15 million Americans were unemployed. During that span, Republican Herbert Hoover was president and he approached the bank crash and the Depression that followed on its heels with a wait-and-see, minimalist approach.

~Squrlz's outrage over the image begins to wane as he notices the small squirrel-sized hotdog with relish, sauerkraut, mustard, and ketchup~

Hey, that looks really good. Do they sell squirrel-sized hotdogs out in San Diego? Maybe I need to plan a visit.

Fojos You're from Sweden? I had no idea. What part? I lived in Finland for a couple years and have traveled a bit in Sweden.
squrlz4ever wrote:
Fojos That's an odd statement to make, frankly. There are not that many non-Americans on here that I know of, so I'm not sure what you're basing that statement of yours on. Unless it's the fact that 5cats and I don't get along. Is that it?

The only non-Americans I can think of who are on here regularly are 5cats (Canada), normalfreak2 (Canada), Draculya (Hong Kong), Butters (Australia), MrTeatime (UK), m3dm3d (France), and Maddie (UK). No doubt I'm missing a few whom I should be remembering and for that my apologies.

We used to list the user's country beneath the avatar and I miss that feature. I often think it would be a great enhancement to add a small flag icon there.

Also, Fojos, are you a non-American? If so, from what country?

monkwarrior Fuad's link most definitely does not say or suggest that "this whole thing is in question."

The article's two concluding sentences read: "Eratosthenes helped to lay the foundation for science based on mathematics and empirical observation rather than on mere philosophical speculation. Most importantly, he demonstrated the awesome power of mathematics as a tool to model our world."

You think it's "just a legend that could be fact or fiction"? Then explain how Ptolemy described the experiment, including the incredibly accurate result, almost 2,000 years ago.
squrlz4ever wrote:
monkwarrior Here's a fact for you: Eratosthenes' experiment, including the remarkably accurate result, was reported by Ptolemy almost 2,000 years ago.

Are you claiming now Ptolemy made the story up?

Honestly, I'm losing patience with you. You've had a scientist take great pains to explain why the Flat-Earthers' laser experiments are flawed. You've had Eratosthenes' experiment explained to you. None of this appears to be making any impression on you whatsoever as you continue to shrug your shoulders, apparently thinking, "Well, unless someday I conduct all these experiments myself, I refuse to believe anything."

Ugh.

Good catch. 5cats started his comment off with an assertion that could not be more incorrect based on information he, himself, linked to.

It's hard to understand how disinformation like that can be due to a mistake or a lack of understanding. It appears to be either a deliberate attempt to mislead or a deliberate attempt to drive intelligent IAB'ers batty. And I don't think it's the latter.
