How many here would open fire on someone with their hands up?

Don't be afraid to admit you would look an 18 year old kid in the eye with his hands up saying "Okay, Okay" and just blow his brains out. There is nothing wrong with doing this, the Grand Jury has spoken.

I think this is a good time to post this video again

'Hottest year' record likely for 2014 after warmest October

Snip>>> If the last two months of the year are only average for the 21st century, it will still be the warmest year ever, Arndt said.

October was the 5th month to break a heat record this year

The Associated Press Posted: Nov 20, 2014 4:46 PM ET| Last Updated: Nov 20, 2014 4:46 PM ET

Despite a bitter cold snap in parts of North America, the globe is rushing hell-bent toward its warmest year on record with last month setting the fifth monthly heat record of the year.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Thursday that last month was the hottest October on record worldwide. The 14.74 Celsius (58.43 degrees Fahrenheit) beat out October 2003.

"It is becoming pretty clear that 2014 will end up as the warmest year on record," said Deke Arndt, climate monitoring chief for NOAA's National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, North Carolina. "The remaining question is: How much?"

With only two months left in the year, 2014 has now surged ahead as the globe's warmest year so far, beating 2010 and 1998. So far this year, the world is averaging 14.78 degrees Celsius (58.62 degrees Fahrenheit). If the last two months of the year are only average for the 21st century, it will still be the warmest year ever, Arndt said.

Rosetta probe Philae discovers organic molecules on comet

The probe that landed on the surface of a comet has discovered organic molecules, the most rudimentary building blocks of life, according to the German agency involved in the mission.

An instrument aboard the Philae lander detected the molecules after “sniffing” the comet’s atmosphere. An organic compound is one whose molecules contain the carbon atom, the basis of life on earth.

Scientists are analyzing the data to see whether the organic compounds detected by Philae are simple ones—such as methane and methanol—or a more complex species such as amino acids, the building blocks for proteins. A drill on Philae also obtained some material from the comet’s hard surface, but data about organic molecules from that experiment have yet to be fully analyzed.

Comets contain some of the most pristine materials in the solar system, dating to about 4.5 billion years ago. Previous studies have suggested that comets forge organic material in their dusty atmospheres.

If this pans out it is perhaps the greatest discovery in the past 50 years if not our lifetime. This is a big f...ing deal in my opinion!
