I seem to recall seeing that the national ignition facility successfully extracted more energy than they put in with their fusion system recently.

http://www.nature.com/news/laser-fusion-experiment-extracts-net-energy-from-fuel-1.14710

The bland assertion that fusion is a pipedream or boondoggle seems more and more like the rhetoric of powerful lobby groups, than actual reality.

Just importing the water from elsewhere doesn't solve the cause behind WHY we're running out of water, which would be management practices and other stuff.

The drought doesn't help matters either anyway.

Canada has a lot of water, and global warming is predicted to increase precipitation in the coming decades. Importing Canadian water to keep the American West going is probably the least bad option.
Oi, get ur grubby paws off our water! Maybe stop building cities in deserts, aight?

@Footjob, you can microwave most grains I've tried pretty easily through the microwave, even if they aren't packaged for it.

Maybe.

But I don't feel there's enough evidence just yet.

(Insane, for fun only, crazy sensationalism follows)

No no!  See, Putin is such an ego-maniacal whackjob bent on securing power FOREVER, that he has timed his enigmatic disappearance with the birth of his only child, thus securing his child's destiny to rule Russia with an iron fist, like Daddy.

I'm just waiting for the day Putin changes his title from "President Putin" to "King Putin," so he can pass the title to his child. :P

Arguably he's already a progressive, just one in the style of an enlightened Kaiser.
I'm going to do the smart thing here and disengage. This isn't a hill I paticularly care to die on.
