Is this it? The start of our glorious space empire? A place to escape from the libtards, nignogs and mudslimes? We must take it before they do!
>Kepler-186f is about 490 light-years from the Earth.
Yah if we leave now traveling at the speed of light we'll be there in 500 years. We need to discover a way to travel faster than the speed of light.
There are plenty of Earth-sized planets in the habitable zones of stars that have been discovered. There's no telling how Earth-like they really are until we have the JWST observe their atmospheres. For all we know the planet in the story you posted is like Venus.
What are your thoughts on the legalization of recreational drugs?
What drugs have you done?
I am for legalization of whatever could fill state's budget through taxation without of its legalized use leading to some unwanted consequences.
I hardly imagine legalized heroine and cocaine would lead to longterm increased work productivity and lesser healthcare expenditure.
I tried pot couple of times. Meh.
Legalize them all, and treat people who are addicted and can't control it instead of incarcerating them. It's cheaper in the long run, and money is made off taxes.
>What drugs have you done?
Weed, coke, mushrooms, Percocet, vicodin, tramadol, adderall, liquor, and tobacco.
>What are your thoughts on the legalization of recreational drugs?
>legalization of recreational drugs?
Legalization of everything, but place limits/restrictions on levels of intoxication while doing things such as driving, operating machinery,and (insert other examples here)
/pol/ is always right only because it wishes to be always right. /pol/ is a great example of confirmation bias.
>Confirmation bias, also called myside bias, is the tendency to search for, interpret, or recall information in a way that confirms one's beliefs or hypotheses. It is a type of cognitive bias and a systematic error of inductive reasoning. People display this bias when they gather or remember information selectively, or when they interpret it in a biased way. The effect is stronger for emotionally charged issues and for deeply entrenched...

>Being this fucking buttblasted over a meme
You're taking this too seriously OP
The way I've seen the idea of "confirmation bias" used is to ignore any argument that uses evidence.
> you agree with this point and you used evidence. I don't agree with your point, so I'll say your evidence is meaningless because you only looked it up to prove your point. I don't have to attack your evidence, because the fact that you used any evidence proves my point.
Isn't that some kind of logical fallacy?
Funnily, your post only confirms that /pol/ is, indeed, always right.
What exactly have we been wrong on? All political debate is just debate, and cannot be set as right or wrong. In terms of predictions of events, analysis of trends, and the recurrence of common scenarios, we're pretty much always right.
>implying /pol/ is one person
It's a meme and board culture. Everyone has confirmation bias. We are still right despite this.
I know /pol/ had a love/hate relationship with moot, but let's post songs in his honour.

I'm saying it because many japaneses at 2ch, mainly kencho(profit hater/poverty) and NanJ criticized the charlie hebdo because of Muhamad satires being unrespectful and ugly.
But then ISIS attack japan and this happens on twitter.

b) Killing armed men who are trained to kill and who are hopped up on heroine within 25 yards of friendly infantry = pathetic.

You guys see this shit? Used car employees bully a pizza delivery guy trying to earn a living.
Total is $13, they hand him $20 in 1 dollar bills. He says thank you and leaves. They call his employer and ask he be fired for not giving them change back. He returns and they all talk shit to him, then they post it on youtube to brag about it.
A publisher in the UK will no longer be publishing or referencing the word 'pig' or any derivatives eg 'sausage' or 'pork' in order to avoid offending "muslims and jews"
you guys are really trying hard, we don't even have that here!
is it a contest with Sweden about who will be under sharia first ?
ISIS posted this video today of Russian intelligence agents that were captured by ISIS
The second agent appears to blink in Morse code
The FSB probably have it translated by now but I want the translation.
Also the agents are executed by a 10 year old Kazakh trap but that isn't important now
So you want us to translate it because you're too lazy? I bet you were the fat kid in high school who always made the geeks do his homework.
Could you at least provide a link to the full video?
Greatest films that are Pol approved?
Amazing story, acting and emotions. The struggle of significance and fulfilment and the events that happen when the goals of two men collide.
