    A lot of the lighter vehicles also happen to be the fuel efficient ones. It's a lot better than tracking people around. Incidentally, if people are going to nitpick about wear and tear on the roads, then the elephant in the room is that they'd have to track me to see which roads I'm on. If I spend a great deal of time on dirt roads or roads that will need very little/no upkeep to be funded by my fuel tax, I'm still taxed the same under all of the proposed systems.

    People who are disabled are discriminated against. All-stop. If you want to advocate for the disabled, then address the root causes of that discrimination. BLM states on their website that black disabled people are more likely to be discriminated against, so they're focused on that. That's not addressing the root cause. People don't ignore the disabled because they're black. LGBT people are discriminated against. All-stop. Whether one thinks, from a moral perspective, that the discrimination should exist is a separate matter. BLM states that black LGBT people are more likely to be discriminated against, so they're focused on that. That's not addressing the root cause. People don't dislike homosexuals based on skin color. So, no, I'm not hurt about being "excluded" but I do think it hurts the effectiveness of a group to protest loudly and pretend to stand for something they're really not. You were the one who said earlier in the thread that BLM was there to address issues of police brutality, etc.. I pointed out that it's not the case per their own website. "Black Lives Matter" is interjecting race into situations where race isn't the underlying problem. You'll find, for instance, that even taking white drug-related incarceration rates, there's a massive disparity between how someone cooking meth in a trailer and some society girl forging prescriptions for medication is treated. You could even go so far as to make them look alike, be the same age, come from two-parent homes, etc., and you will have the same issue. Take a quick browse through crimes against LGBT motivated by sexual orientation, and you will see an awful lot of the victims are not black. Not "a few" or "the exception," but many.

    Precisely. The gas tax also encourages --- without being an utter asshole about it --- people to consider fuel efficiency when purchasing a vehicle. The consideration may amount to "fuck it; I am getting a muscle car" but it's still in the back of our minds. We went from a small SUV and a Cadillac to two Civics at one point, and the difference was substantial enough to make it a huge consideration going forward.

    Probably the same historical documents you refer to. He was seeing things that weren't there, and hearing voices. Merriam Webster : something (such as an image, a sound, or a smell) that seems real but does not really exist and that is usually caused by mental illness or the effect of a drug : perception of objects with no reality usually arising from disorder of the nervous system or in response to drugs (as LSD) Dictionary.com 1. a sensory experience of something that does not exist outside the mind, caused by various physical and mental disorders, or by reaction to certain toxic substances, and usually manifested as visual or auditory images.

    What "circularity"? The resurrection never happened in the first place because Jesus didn't die on the cross. On what are you basing your assertion that Jesus' inner circle endorsed Paul?

    What historical records? You mean the writings (many authored by Paul) that were assembled to support Paul's psychotic break with reality? Which then became the State Religion adopted by the most brutal empire the world has ever seen?

    Christianity 101 is that Jesus was preaching to the Jewish common people, teaching them how to have a close, personal relationship with God without the hypocrisy of the State and it's oppressive taxation and laws. Christianity as we know it today was totally dreamed up by Paul.

    You can look up "Snakes at Disney" and go through the photos and videos, btw, and realize that's only a matter of time since people are idiots. When that happens, there will be calls for more signs since Disney definitely knows about them, too. Apparently there HAVE been attacks. Where are you guys on this? CBR = Caribbean Beach Resort

    A toddler wading at the shore at night where there is a steep drop-off is not the same as you walking with one foot on the beach. "Not so with an alligator" is inaccurate. It's highly unusual for alligators to randomly be aggressive and lunge at you on shore with no cover, unless they're hand-fed, which we've already covered over and over again. The video you posted says the same thing. Yes, I'm aware gators can jump and climb --- and do so regardless of signage. I'm the one that posted the video of one climbing a fence, and it's usually safe to assume you'd need an 8+ foot fence designed not to be climbable to keep out critters in this general category (including the aforementioned snakes and turtles). A stone barrier would be preferable, honestly, as I mentioned before. Look! There IS a sign warning of gators! But not snakes... even though it's way more likely you'd be fending off a water moccasin in that area. Disney's ahead of them on that front. Neither of them seem to care about turtles or fire ants. Frankly, it's amazing any of us are alive.

    Actually now I am wondering why the new shore doesn't have the steep drop-off mentioned. They seemed to think warning about the drop-off would keep people out of the water and hence out of the jaws of alligators (or giant snakes, which is still perplexing), but that didn't work. Now they have signs about gators and snakes, but what if someone doesn't realize there's a shelf there and falls into suddenly deep water?

    You're right. Someone should have put up a sign. Want to take a guess as to where this sign is? So my hypothetical, which you seem so interested in discounting, isn't really a hypothetical. This sign was up, and parents ignored it and their toddler was wading right near a steep drop-off. While engaged in what was already an action that endangered their child, another danger came up and snatched him away, likely aided by the deep water. That doesn't make it the parents' fault (maybe they were ready to swoop in if the child lost his footing, and felt they were prepared to guard against the drop-off danger), but for some reason no one seems to be pointing out these signs were there. This is actually a missing piece for me. The story of the body being found yards from shore didn't make sense, but it does now. It's much deeper there, right off shore.

    That was what I was asking. You're really on a name-calling binge tonight, btw. I pointed out that hold harmless agreements don't work the way you're saying they do when there are other factors which tip the scales and make it no longer a natural hazard, but you glossed over that. If I say there are alligators in a lake, there's an assumption they are natural alligators, and not hand-fed alligators, and definitely there's an assumption that there's not a huge area under my control where alligators are being allowed to breed and come over to that lake. If those last two things are happening, though, no sign is going to cover me; I've created an unnatural hazard. I could paste several boring paragraphs of case law, but something tells me you will just roll your eyes, stomp your foot, and admit you didn't read it anyhow.

    Oh. Okay. So Disney having a sign up that there were alligators would have been sufficient to protect them, even if they had an entire area where they were allowing alligators to breed and get into the lagoon, and knowledge of people feeding them. The sign constitutes equal knowledge and implies that the alligators are hand-fed, park-bred, and unafraid of people. I notice you didn't cite anything new, especially pertaining to the "steep drop-off" part of my question.

    Right, but it's not just about corruption in the police department. Their own site goes on to talk about, essentially, how discrimination is MORE discrimination-y when you're black. LGBT? Well it's important to BLM... if you're black. Discrimination against the disabled? It's important... if you're black. The study you linked to is not particularly helpful, btw. It's a reasonably small sample size in a fairly localized geographic area. It doesn't really mention where in Florida the officers are from, which does make a difference. I am also suspicious of a study that goes through the trouble to tell us the racial and gender makeup of the original 50 officers used for the study, then doesn't tell us which two were not included in the final findings during their Method paragraph. Even something as simple as whether or not the officer was right- or left-handed would have a bearing on the study, but it's not mentioned.
