    [–] Japan suffers worst measles outbreak, 167 cases reported 10ebbor10 1 points ago in worldnews

    They don't say it has a limit.

    Virtually everyone (more than 99%) will be protected against measles and rubella for more than 20 years after 2 doses of MMR.

    OP misinterpreted the 20 years figure. It's not 20 years and then stop. It's at least 20 years.

    Because the radical difference in guidance is not a radical difference in guidance at all.

    The NHS doesn't say that the vaccine only lasts 20 years. They say that it'll last at least 20 years. OP misinterpreted that statement.

    Basically, science has found that measles protection doesn't really degrade, and after 20 years everyone is still protected. The CDC was willing to extrapolate that continued protection into arguing that it's basically lifetime protection, the NHS was more conservative in their statement.

    Neither statement contradicts the other.

    No, the person above you misread the NHS claim. The NHS says that protection lasts for more than 20 years (with no defined end date), instead of saying that it lasts only 20 years.

    According to the CDC, immunity lasts a lifetime, but the NHS (UK) says 20 years.

    No they don't say that. They say this :

    . Virtually everyone (more than 99%) will be protected against measles and rubella for more than 20 years after 2 doses of MMR.

    More than 20 years doesn't mean the immunity suddenly vanishes after 20. It just means that they used a study that lasted up to 20 years while writing the FAQ.

    [–] Nuclear propulsions 10ebbor10 2 points ago in space

    They probably stopped because they were afraid the rocket sending the nuclear reactor into space might blow up and give everyone in Florida cancer.

    The risk of that is near-non existent. The reactor is an upper stage engine, which means it doesn't go active untill it's way out of the danger xone.

    The problem is that the Saturn V got cancelled. No rocket, no engine.

    Fission fragments are used as propulsion. Highly theoretical, but possible.

    [–] LAOP’s 19 yo girlfriend has gone through the name change process. Her father, who hasn’t been in her life for some time, has suddenly appeared in order to appeal the name change. What happens next? 10ebbor10 11 points ago in bestoflegaladvice

    As the comments say :

    Objections to name changes that courts take seriously are things like, "this person is trying to change their name because they owe me a million dollars and want to hide from debt collectors" or "this person owes me child support and is changing their name because they're running away from that."

    Thing is, with an error or +- 100 meters, this thing literally can not hit the broad side of a barn.

    In addition, it's completely dependent on GPS, with very limited inertial navigation. The moment anyone turns on a GPS jammer, it'll crash.

    Oh, and lastly, the nazi's didn't have GPS. Include GPS in the V1 navigation system, and it'll get the same accuracy.

    The V-1's were assembled by starving Jewish concentration camp workers. Not exactly the most motivated educated working force (which showed in the results, but it worked).

    In addition, buying stuff on Amazon doesn't mean it's not high tech materials made in a factory somewhere, it just means high tech stuff is cheap.

    Not really, because they're not at all comparable.

    Simpson's missile is considerably slower, smaller, completely dependent on GPS navigation, and easier to intercept.

    For a comparison, these were his goals.

    Limited range, but at least 100 miles (160 Kms)
    Limited payload capacity, but at least 22lbs (10 Kgs)
    Limited accuracy, but at least +- 100 yards (100m)

    And this is the performance of the WWII era V1 rocket :

    Range : 250 km
    Payload : 850 kg
    Accuracy : six miles deviation per hundred miles

    When reverse engineered, they calculated that the V1 rocket could be build for 600$ in materials (in 1943). Accounting for inflation, that's 8700$ today. So, except for the GPS this rocket isn't even much better than what the Nazi's came up with.

    [–] What is up with Reddit “suggesting” sorting by controversial? 10ebbor10 8 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    The mods can set what type of comment sorting is suggested. It's not new, but not often used.

    If worst comes to worse, use the German system.

    First, elect all your senators using whatever means you want. Then, sprinkle in a few extra leap senators to restore population proportional balance.

    Just to be clear, in-person voter fraud is not the type of fraud you see in this article. That is electoral fraud.

    [–] Trump administration launches global effort to end criminalization of homosexuality 10ebbor10 10 points ago in worldnews

    It literally is and if it weren't classified as such, subsidized insurance wouldn't be able to cover costs of treatment. That's literally the trans community position on the DSM-V classification.

    Do you really think that the heritage foundation was talking about the DSM-V classification of gender dysphoria?

    I'm going to admit, I can't find which article they're referring to, but what articles I could find certainly didn't look like the DSM-V or it's suggestion of treatment.

    who had openly admitted to vote tampering

    Has she?

    I just searched everywhere, and I can find no evidence of her admitting that, or any non-partisan sources confirming that tampering has taken place (if anything, they say there's been no tampering)

    Brenda Snipes just seems to be incompetent.

    Edit: In addition, while the stats show an undervoting anomaly, that undervote goes against, rather than in favor of democrats.

    Voter ID doesn't solve electoral fraud, it can't. The only thing voter ID can solve is in-person voter fraud.

    Nah.

    Conservatives tend to accuse people of voter fraud, whereas this is electoral fraud. Different things.
