    It’s rape, loot, pillage, then burn.
    Get it in the right order this time.

    Pretzels count as bread.
    Tortilla chips are unleavened bread.

    No fruits contain significant amount of any of the Vitamin D s.
    Mushrooms that have been exposed to sunlight or UV light can have acceptable amounts of D2.
    Alfalfa shoots have a good amount of D and a small amount of D3, but you would need to eat a kg every day to get enough D3 without sunlight exposure.
    Fish oil, meat, eggs and livers are good sources.
    Most westerners get the majority of Vitamin D from foods that have been fortified with man made Vitamin D.

    Interesting study, more interesting media hype.
    Currently, every year, roughly 3.2 people per 100,000 will die from one of the cancers mentioned in the report.
    If everyone in the world started eating at least 5 hot dogs a week, that number would increase to 3.6 over the next 20 years.
    Except that doesn’t take into account the number of people who already consume a lot of processed red meat.
    So, if everyone who doesn’t regularly eat processed red meat started to, the number would rise to 3.3.
    If everyone stopped eating processed red meat, except as an occasional treat, the number would drop to 2.9.

    Looks a lot like a media hyped tempest in a teapot to me.

    Emoji(s). From the Japanese, which is why the spelling looks odd in English.

    Traitors has a specific meaning under the US Constitution.
    The States that seceded from the Union believed that they had the right to secede under the 10th Amendment to the US Constitution.
    Having seceded, the attack on Fort Sumner was an attempt to prevent an invasion by a foreign country.
    Had Lincoln used diplomacy rather than sending an armed fleet to South Carolina, the War between the States may have been entirely avoided, with the Union being restored by legal actions. (Probably not while Lincoln was President, but within a 5 to 12 year time frame.)

    Lincoln – a racist, war-mongering tyrant that trampled the Constitution and would have been willing to execute every slave in the country to maintain his power base (based on history and his own writings).

    Wait to see who the Libertarian Party nominates.

    Propane is rated at 2515 BTU per cubic foot.
    Natural gas is rated at 1030 BTU per cubic foot.
    Natural gas jets are designed to deliver 8 to 10 % Natural gas to air.
    Propane jets should deliver 4 to 5% propane to air.
    A natural gas jet using propane delivers so much fuel that not all of burns immediately (a too “rich” mixture), resulting in a buildup of unburned fuel, that will produce a fireball when it is mixed with enough air (and has an ignition source, such as a pilot light or ignited burner).

    The reverse, using propane jets with natural gas, results in not enough fuel being mixed with the air (a too “lean” mixture), resulting in the burner or oven not igniting immediately, permitting the fuel air mixture to build up unburned until the pilot light finally ignites it, resulting in a deflagration fireball.

    I can infer that you are neither a scientist nor an engineer.
    The further an event is in the past, the greater the error in determining both when and the duration of the event.
    For something such as the rate of change in temperature over a short time frame.
    Prior to the current interglacial (the last 2.6 million years), we can show that there were large changes in global temperatures.
    We cannot show the rate of change in anything but very broad terms.
    Did a 10 C change take place over 10K years, 100 years or 10 years? That cannot be determined, only that the change did occur sometime during a 100K year period.
