In Topic: GUN ownership, Killings - a US epidemic

That my friend, is called "cherry picking" - it is the practice of selecting your data points to INTENTIONALLY skew the results in a positive or negative way.

 Why are many "developed" nations missing from that list ? Why are there several "underdeveloped" nations on that list ?


 I could throw a graph together that shows Finland is the #1 consumer of fish ( using cherry picked data points ) - doesn't actually prove anything, however.

In Topic: GNU ownership, Software - an everywhere epidemic

Name some software that, has been released in the last 10 years, that is both successful AND 100% open source.

 Please do not name anything that started as open source, and than went closed development !

Simply put, closed development has produced a LOT more useful software in *MODERN* times than open source.  ( unless you wish to talk about Firefox's core code being used as the backbone of the TOR network ).

Does anyone in this forum bother to do any kind of research, or do they just parrot whatever is heard in the media ?
The United States of America is ranked 111th highest murder rate per capita in the world as of Jan 2015 ... 94th highest ranking for murders per capita using firearms.

"Plants also need oxygen"


You might be wrong there. Plants need CO2. The only "plants" which need oxygen are fungi and that's because they're fungi not actually plants.


Please read up on botany - several experiments have been done on plants in CO2 environments -  mostly they can only survive in levels up to 25% - some plants die after being exposed to as little as 10%



Carbon dioxide (CO2) is an important trace gas in Earth's atmosphere currently constituting about 0.04% (400 parts per million) of the atmosphere.



The main component of the atmosphere of Mars is carbon dioxide (CO2) at 95.9%
