The first article you are citing says superrotation, not counterrotation. Where do you get this "counterrotation" idea? The second article you cite says exactly why I wrote -- angular momentum keeps the Earth rotating. You need to learn to read better.

No, there is no need for an outside force to keep the Earth rotating. The huge mass of the Earth has a lot of momentum. It's still spinning because it takes a long time to lose the energy. There is an "outside force" affecting the Earth's rotation, though. You see it in the sky all the time. It's called the Moon. The drag from the Moon is transferring angular momentum from the Earth's o

She has waited much too long to get any extension. The EU is indeed a creaking, byzantine bureaucracy that moves very slowly. This is one of the reasons for Brexit in the first place (although issues of sovereignty seem to carry the most weight with the voters). Nine days is certainly not enough time unless they declare some sort of emergency. Several major EU officials have already said they wan

You are thinking in terms of modern world-scale religions. These have to be inclusive in some sense because they must transcend many cultures. But religions were originally just part of tribal culture, and white supremacy is certainly a return to tribalism. The exact definition of 'religion' is tricky, of course.

Ted Kaczynski was an environmental extremist, not a racist. You have skipped over the obvious parallel, the extreme anti-immigration terrorist Anders Breivik: Quote ...

Generally there was ice and frost there when the animals or people died, and that's why they were preserved. Things are currently warming up, and some ice is melting, but that's only relative to the last few thousand years. Mammoths found in the permafrost, for example, often have broken legs, as if they fell into a crevasse in a glacier, or their lungs are full of silt, as if they were drowned i

Major "white collar" criminal cases are notoriously slow. Evidence has to be gathered from far flung and obscure sources, then carefully correlated. Don't think that these two cases are the only thing in the pipeline. Expect more cases, probably in state courts, but possibly from the Federal Southern District of New York, as well. Manafort will certainly spend the rest of his life entan

Hah.... that's more-or-less what I was thinking. There are similarities to the word-wide trend of belligerent nationalism, and in the US that is led by Trump. Have Trump and Modi met yet? Do they seem to get along?

13. Re: Y2K
Which is what drove the tech boom of the 90s. Businesses were spending ahead of their real needs and even wants because of fear of the Y2K bug. When 2000 arrived and nothing major blew up, tech spending dropped like the proverbial rock and there was a gigantic recession in tech specifically, large enough to pull the whole economy down somewhat and cause a general recession.

Critical distinction: Spiro Agnew resigned first, then plead guilty to a lesser charge than the prosecutors could have brought against him. Literally minutes after resigning. He made a voluntary deal. What if he had refused to make a deal? We don't really know. A court would have to decide if the situation arose. It's still not really established if the President or Vice President can be indicted

Hmm, wouldn't that make the Euroskeptics in Germany into "self-hating Germans"? :) The statement is sort of, vaguely, correct. But too narrow. The EU project was to merge the countries of Europe into a single political entity. It was a smart move in the short term, that is, in its early less-ambitious phases. But completely idiotic in its ultimate scope and goal. How could nations that

That's the problem, it is not the same orbit. Even the scientists are describing this wrong. The Wikipedia article on asteroid 2015 BZ509 includes some good diagrams of the orbit. It's definitely on a different angle than the main ecliptic of the solar system. It also has a high degree of eccentricity (elongation) compared to any planet.

The method of discovery has confused the identification of what is going on. A police detective with practice in detecting serial killers may have discovered a guerilla or "asymmetric warfare" group. Serial killers are usually solo, and rarely a small group. More importantly, they are driven by their own psychological issues, and do not organize into cells in multiple cities. If they ha

The journalists write the headlines, not the scientists. It's orbiting at roughly the same distance as Jupiter, but could not be in "the same" orbit. It would collide with Jupiter if it was orbiting at the same angle. But the fact that it crosses Jupiter's orbit raises a strong possibility that it came near Jupiter when passing through the solar system from outside, and was captured int

That's very interesting. In literally the last few days there has been a large scale change in social media? Where are you looking? Facebook? Twitter? (This of course begs the question - does this mean anything about actual US public opinion, or just the operational choice of Russian troll farms? Maybe Putin has decided it's time to send his operative into a suicide dive...)

All the fuss about Russia has completely buried the most likely real compromise, which has been known for decades. Trump has been openly accused of ties with organized crime, mainly in the construction industry of NYC, since the 1970s. This was pointed out early in the campaign but got overwhelmed by his publicity-by-controversy campaign style. Politico (May 22, 2016) Washington Post (Octo

Microsoft has issued an out-of-band patch due to a serious bug discovered in IE, in active use. There are people currently taking over systems with this exploit. Most people with automatic update active will probably get it within a few days. But deliberately opening Windows Update and clicking the "Check for Updates" button might not be a bad idea.

Therefore, it is highly unlikely to be disobedience. Putin has almost certainly given the OK for her to talk even if it exposes more of the operation.
