Store invasions like this have happened before as far back as 50 years ago when I was in high school. The kids were mostly middle class and white.Kids in buses ESPECIALLY after a sporting event. If they are allowed to exit uncontrolled and there is a store, the kids will do an invasion just like this. Some of the kids might just want to buy a soda and candy and they wind up caught up in the middle of the crazy kids.Some retailers keep their stores tightly controlled when they are aware bus loads of kids will stop by.Experience helps.
A New way to get to work:
:So, is it official ? People that have or claim to have food allergies are liberal snowflakes ? Who knew ?
theoakman says99% of scientists have no business or background to even frame an opinion on global warmingCommon sense should take one far enough. 1) Accept the greenhouse effect as being a legitimate possible or even probable effect of increasing greehouse gases, with CO2's impact being significant (based in large part on what experts who have done the science say)2) Not knowing for sure how much of the upward trend is an effect of increasing greehouse gases but knowing that the link to solar activity shows far less correlation correlation. 3) concluding that the probability is high enough (but not close to certain) that increasing co2 is a significant causal factor of GW, to make coordinated world wide efforts to move away from fossil fuels in an expedited but reasonable time frame.

theoakman saysYou teach math right? What's your opinion on signal to noise with respect to the temperature data on climate change?Yes, math, but not accounting or data collection. The only Math involved is simple arithmetic, although I guess statistics/probability is involved in understanding how averages relate to "noise."MY assumption is that being the 21st century, the sheer volume of data points is such that the averages should be meaningful. I got in a prolonged argument with someone a while back about whether averages can be more accurate and to a higher precision than individual data values. He made a confused argument about something he copied off the internet about experimental procedures and sig figs. I couldn't prove in an argument here, and it's not easy to prove whats extremely obvious to me. That is that temperature data readings should distribute around actual values in...
