Replication is the heartbeat of knowledge.

    You can also include all the developmental neuroscience that shows that 18 year olds have not developed their inhibitory control mechanism. To be fair it's not done till 25, but at 21 it's alot further along that 18.

    If you have spent any amount of time around 18-22 year olds you will be able to tell a vast difference in maturity.

    I don't feel a need to convince you... I just saw your statement of "no reason" as hyperbolic.
    I prefer posts with scientific backing over others. I'd go on and further the discussion in a meaningful way, but I don't feel a need to convince you.

    So move along and consider me unconvinced.

    if you are interested in science you can look it up.

    I could point out that your posts didn't have any scientific backing.

    but anyway.... moving along now.

Did you laugh when hybrid cars and electric cars came out?

    It's incredible the hold that fox news seems to have on you. I wonder if Trump said we need to start making changes in our food industry you would have the same reply. Big money says no.

    I have to back pedal some of my cnn criticism. Fox is still the king of fake news. This same thread with clips of AOC speaking, saying incredibly reasonable things, doesn't match any of the headline bites any Republicans are repeating in here. These people are legitimately living in an alternate reality. Fox, you are still the fake news king, my apologies.
    Nasty you are on a roll today.

    It's just more of that no simple answer BS.

    I admittedly know very little on this topic. I am guessing you likewise are in the dark. Often times solutions that are expensive become less expensive when we have to mass produce things. (again I know very little) But agriculture has to be part of the discussion.
    Flips gets a point on the cows. They use more land and resources than we get out of them. The most inefficient livestock, however delicious.

    Scoots gets half a point. We cant farm sustainably and maintain our current population levels. However, we can feed everyone quite easily today with modern farming techniques. Id argue that they are as or more damaging to the environment as the methane released from cattle through pollution and soil erosion. Its a six of one half dozen of the other situation.

    The fact that AOC and Sarah Palin both exist in the same spectrum and we dont all consider both of them to be incredibly moronic in their political platforms proves how partisan we are as a nation.

    Well Im sure as the governor she did but who the f pays attention to Alaska politics? With AOC, people get to pay attention a little more and watch her cost NY jobs and millions in tax revenue while running around like chicken little screaming the worlds going to end...

    Yeah so you don't know anything about palin's platform... but it's totally comparable to AOC. OK... sure.

    he's probably referring to the whole Amazon thing... which wasn't really her, and isn't what they are making it out to be.

    Go to leader? The leader of the country is the president. IMO, you dont have to agree with the president to support them.

    Alternatively, you could just not support a horrible leader you don't agree with.

    But the cop out safe stance you're taking seems to be working for a lot of people so just roll with it.
