That would vary by the situation, I suppose. Especially if they choose war, we might be better off choosing war as well to avoid being taken by surprise in a preemptive strike. Sounds like a classic prisoner's dilemma to me.

It's obviously not text, and unlike PNG/GIF, there's no helpful 3-byte sequence in the beginning allowing me to identify it :/

And tying it back into aliens, not choosing peace might be beneficial for our society, though not the alien one.

Yet somehow it brought hundreds of millions of people out of the Great Depression and into higher living standards.

You might note that Australia has remarkably high burglary rates. The problem noticed in my 30 page "Guns" thread is that any piece of statistics, or one isolated case, can be found in favor of or against gun control. The difficulty is in getting people to take ALL the statistics.

I'd rather be burgled than murdered. Would a lack of gun control in Australia reduce burglary rates and not see an increase in gun crime? Just your opinion, since I wouldn't trust statistics in this hypothetical situation. I'd like an explanation though..
The thing is that the two are not equal. There are more burglaries in Australia than shootings in America, by a lot.

No, they aren't equal. So you're saying that gun control has nothing to do with burglary rates then?

I fail to comprehend how you managed to pull that assumption from my post.

In any case, the answer to your question is "no." What I am saying is that the rate of Australian burglaries is so much higher than the rate of American shootings that the latter is relatively insignificant as an argument for gun control.

M8, agree, or disagree. That is all. It's fine to cite the broken window fallacy, but WWII pulled us out of the Great Depression. Furthermore, the main argument seems to be "The money spent on the war effort, for example, is money that cannot be spent on food, clothing, health care, consumer electronics or other areas." Funny how we managed to CREATE jobs with WWII then, huh?

WWII was a net positive for America.

You've been answered. They weren't "real Christians." That's the answer. Cut away all the atheist talk and that's your consistent answer.

I live in one of the UK's highest murder rate areas.
Know what? Statistically it isn't half as bad as just about any US city.

Ever thought that might have more to do with the people where you live than the laws where you live?

And does "just about any US city" include Kennesaw, Georgia?

So the most murderous people in the UK are less murderous than the most murderous people in the US? Why do you think that is, myrkul?

A long history of exporting their criminals?

Why then is it that Australia has a similarly low rate of murder? Australia has history of importing criminals.

M8, I'm saying that the Great Depression ended mostly because of WWII. Agree or disagree?
1537  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Wiki Weapon on: August 08, 2012, 02:39:23 AM
Not even that. Just in general, find something revolutionary that someone has done. Create a quick website, take the credit, pretend to be that person, say you're going to do more. Accept donations. The end.

Hey man, when did we pull out of the Great Depression?
1539  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Wiki Weapon on: August 07, 2012, 10:34:37 PM
OK. This has given me a great scam idea though; thanks.

How much knowledge like that has been lost? In the 1990's, we were growing Andean potatoes using fertilizers and machines, and not doing anywhere near as well as the ancient Indians (screw it, I'm calling them Indians) did. That's pretty impressive. Presumably, there's plenty of knowledge that people had before the present that we don't have know, and some of that knowledge would be useful. I bet a lot of it would be. Society would be a lot further along
