#5071: Hey, that actually makes a good point!

Arse Technica is complaining that Australia has "gutted" government climate research but that led me to realize something:

If the science is settled, why do we need more climate research?

Let's face it: all kinds of people are telling us that anthropogenic global warming is a proven scientific fact. That being the case, why do we need to research it any further?

I think this is a good tactic to employ; the next time anyone brings up that "science is settled" nonsense I'm going to remember this.

Speaking of shit people made up for the sake of a cause, fake hate crimes are the rule rather than the exception. Which is to say, actual real hate crimes are themselves rare, and approximately 99% of the time anyone who claims to be the victim of a hate crime is himself the perpetrater of a hoax.

Today I kept an eye on the "agents logged in" statistic. I got sent home when that number had dwindled to 29 from a peak of 110. That was at 8:50 PM. I can live with that. One hour's wages won't break me.

Mrs. Fungus is on her way home with the ingredients for chicken tacos. I can't wait for dinner.
