We’re close.

But still just a bit behind (see the pie chart on the main page). About a quart low, so to speak.

Will you help?

(UPDATE: I will be a guest on the Kate Dalley show today – Thursday the 30th – at 3 p.m.)

This site exists – its existence is made possible – to a very great extent by reader support. The Internet is kind of like a newspaper/magazine store with no plastic wrap on the mags, no checkout camera, no price tags.  You’re free to browse, find things useful/entertaining (or not) and – key thing – it’s all free.

We publishers can’t force you to pay to read – as used to be the case in the BI (Before Internet) era. This made it possible – along with advertising – to pay the writers/reporters/editors and so on. In the AI (After Internet) era, it’s very hard to get paid at all, if you’re a writer/reporter/editor (and forget make-up people, copy editors and graphic designers).

But free, it turns out, has a price.

It is that the material – news and viewpoints – available to you will diminish as virtually everyone except those shilling for Team Red or Team Blue gets pushed aside by raw economic necessity and finds some other line or (much worse) joins Team Red or Team Blue and shills for them because it’s the only way to keep bread on the table and a roof over their heads. Guys like Limbaugh and Hannity are sell-out sock puppets, but they’ll never miss a meal. Same for the Ed Schultzes and so on organ-grinding for the other side.

If you want an alternative to them – something like EPautos – your support is absolutely critical. Please, consider chipping in.

    ANSWERS

    1. D (The sixth month of the year is June.)

    2. C (Scrupulous is a word used to describe someone who is punctual and precise, while negligent is a word used to describe someone who is lazily careless.)

    3. A (DIY is the acronym for “do it yourself”)

    4. B (Designation is the act of indicating, while the other words mean allowance.)

    5. A (To antecede and precede both mean to be earlier than something.)

    6. C (Soap is used for cleaning as medicine is used for curing.)

    7. B (Grinberg, A.L. and Havanos, B.G. are the two pairs which have exact duplicates.)

    8. B (The sentence is: Summer and winter are not seasons, which is false.)

    9. C (According to the first statement we know that black haired people are kind, but kind people do not necessarily have black hair. Therefore we cannot know for sure if the third statement is correct.)

    10. A (The sun has a diameter over than 100 times larger than earth, which has a diameter larger than the all the other answers.)

    11. B (Because 30 is 6 times more than 5, we also multiply the cost by 6, 0.3*6=1.80.)

    12. A (If Edna has 6 times more marbles than Sam, we can define Sam as X and Edna as 6X, and build the following equation: X+6X=56, therefore X=8.)

    13. F (Because 36 seconds is 18 times more than 2 seconds we also multiply the distance traveled by 18, 100*18=1800, which does not appear in the answers.)

    14. B (We can see that numbers in the series constantly grow by 4, therefore the next number will be 44+4=48.)

    15. C (In order to find out how much is 17 out of 20 in percentage, we need to reach a denominator of 100 (a percent is simply a fraction with a denominator of 100). In order to do this we multiply the fraction 17/20 by 5 and reach 85/100 which is 85%.)

    16. A (In the current agreement Dana receives 10% of $6600, which is $6600*10/100=$660. If the profits were divided equally between the three partners she would have received a third which is $6600*1/3=$2200. Therefore she would have made $2200-$660= $1540 more in the second case.)

    ‘She’ rolls her own tampons and kick starts her vibrator.

    She is an utter failure at everything she does, so she demands government disadvantage men

    She has a Planned Parenthood rewards card

    The overweight ones with a perma-frown and no man in their lives.

    A feminist doesn’t need spotting. She can lift weights on her own thank you very much. Or he.

    studies gender studies and whores and sluts it up, then whines when her unskilled ass can’t become CEO of a bank. She then sues her employer.

    She has a really odd definition of rape that pretty much convicts the entire male gender

    Poisonous hair, misuses term equality, strong & independent but needs a free job

    Usually fat & ugly, always inherently unlikeable, supremely hypocritical, snarky, annoying, deluded, intransigent.

    Struggling at the side of the road to change a tire, in the pouring rain, refusing all ‘male’ help. Oh, & her beard.

    Want to be treated the same as men, but cry when they are treated like men.

    A feminist will be wearing a “This is what a feminist looks like” XXL T-shirt covered in Hagen Daz & kitty litter.

    on soviet twitter, angry feminist spots you

    says: My political agenda to force men to do things at gunpoint is all about equality

    She can’t pass a firefighter physical to save her life -or yours – but becomes one anyway.

    says: your rights end where my feelings begin

    feminism is about equality in the way communism is about prosperity

    She can’t fix a computer, change a tire, or lift more than 40lbs, but she thinks she should be treated equally anyway

    She counts women executives at public companies and whines if it’s <50% while 900 million women are brutally subjugated under Islam

    • Take you to the stars, oh hell, disappointment has reigned supreme for me and my bros. who went to school together. We took all the technical course and were so excited by what was surely soon to come space travel. And a couple guys have worked in the aerospace(top secret)for half a century and they’re really bummed out being constantly shuffled off to work on the newest top secret bomber when their minds are really batting about interstellar and time travel. Some of the really physics type of people think interstellar travel as we might build it, things we understand a bit more than how to hyper-drive a space craft to beyond the speed of light is the crowd who are messing around with formulas for creating a portal that crosses various types of boundaries, maybe some sort of dimension altering thing……or not.

      It certainly seems that getting to other planets(not the moon that’s already being fought over by the most powerful earth nations)would allow those who think beyond what I can or at least can show some equation to represent it to work somehow…..but no, every single dollar it seems is going to making weapons to ensure we always have wars and the big economic gains for the very few….and the huge gains for the most perverted polity in the way of POWER and of which they hope to eventually turn into the dreams and goals of their idols, RICHES, the entire lot eaten up with plain old GREED.

      I’m re-reading an old Julian Way book, The Many-Colored Lands, the things we wished……among others……..but I often wonder when the day will come(sooner than later I’d bet)when Sci-Fi will become “illegal”. it’s probably pretty close now.
