Daredevil and Flat Earth theorist Michael "Mad Mike" Hughes died Saturday in a rocket crash. Hughes, 64, wanted to prove the Flat Earth theory by taking photographs of the Earth from a homemade rocket.

Now we will never know.

misguided.

Bowman is awfully quiet about these situations. He sure was loud and proud when he wanted a few of the cities monuments removed but boy when good honest monuments are vandalized he hides like a coward.

Pretty moronic way to attract investment to your province.  Disgusting, juvenile and perhaps a Criminal Code violation.

How utterly abhorrent. It takes a real mouth-breathing piece of **** to sink so low.

And then there's this poor, misguided soul, a self-proclaimed libertarian and climate realist*https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/feb/28/naomi-seibt-anti-greta-activist-white-nationalist-inspiration

So, let me get this straight: ignorant, uneducated denialists took a dump on "climate alarmists" for parading a teenager around to further their cause, accusing her of being a "puppet of the progressive left" and just a "dumb kid who should stay in school", going so far as to claim she has FASD and Down Syndrome... And in response, they're now parading around a teenager to further their "cause," led by the likes of none other than The Heartland Institute...? What even.

* I can only surmise she has no clue what the word realist actually means

The alt right always go for the easiest target because their bullies.  When young people speak out about gun violence at schools, look what happens.  And look at Greta.  I especially like when they claim there are more important things to worry about, as if people cant have more than one cause or as if there is only one issue that can ever be looked at at one time.   You dont have to agree, but whats Greta doing thats bad?  Her message is a good one.

In late January, the first confirmed American case of the coronavirus had landed in her area. Critical questions needed answers: Had the man infected anyone else? Was the deadly virus already lurking in other communities and spreading?

As luck would have it, Chu had a way to monitor the region. For months, as part of a research project into the flu, she and a team of researchers had been collecting nasal swabs from residents experiencing symptoms throughout the Puget Sound region.

To repurpose the tests for monitoring the coronavirus, they would need the support of state and federal officials. But nearly everywhere Chu turned, officials repeatedly rejected the idea, interviews and emails show, even as weeks crawled by and outbreaks emerged in countries outside of China, where the infection began.

By Feb. 25, Chu and her colleagues could not bear to wait any longer. They began performing coronavirus tests, without government approval.

What came back confirmed their worst fear. They quickly had a positive test from a local teenager with no recent travel history. The coronavirus had already established itself on U.S. soil without anybody realizing it.
