Rethinking My Position on Drug Legalization

by LowDown on 03-24-16 at 01:53 PM
While I've generally been in favor of drug legalization I've always felt that some drugs are too dangerous to legalize. These are the stimulants like cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy, etc. This is because habitual use basically destroys the human body, resulting in brain damage, kidney failure, malnutrition, open skin sores, etc. If you'd like to see what I mean, look here.

I had thought that narcotics were a lesser danger and that legalization could lead to a tolerable situation,

Marquis de Sade

by LowDown on 12-27-15 at 04:52 PM
The Marquis de Sade (Donatien Alphonse FranÁois, Marquis de Sade) was a sexual deviant, to be sure.

When faced with arrest and imprisonment he doubled down, continuing his sexual exploits in prison and calling for the governmentís end.

No Improvement of Climate Models

by LowDown on 08-09-13 at 11:11 AM
Climate models are being run on ever faster supercomputers, but they don't seem to be getting any better.

Most people are interested in one output of climate models, which are predictions of average global temperatures. But models also have results for several other critical variables such as precipitation and regional or local temperatures. It is these latter things that require the spacial information that costs so much in computer time to determine.

Odd Things About Hybrid Cars

by LowDown on 02-27-13 at 02:42 PM
I'm speaking here of the first generation Prius and Ford Fusion Hybrids among others. Different brands of hybrids can be different.

I'd always thought of hybrid cars as cars with an electric motor and big battery attached to the engine. But hybrid cars of this type are way different.

One odd thing about a hybrid car is that when you start it the engine doesn't come on. It turns on later when needed. Lights flash and an indicator tells you when the car is ready to
