Yes, the press will always harp on what they believe is the popular opinion. Europeans have, for a long time, been smug, arrogant assholes about minority issues in the US. No offense, them's just the facts.. So when problems arose as soon as your governments let in minority refugees in any numbers, the trend was to deny it and downplay the issues because Europeans don't believe they have such issues. Now that shits going really badly it's time for the press to switch bandwagons.

Did you see this? It's actually old at this point.

There is, and neither should be censored. Nothing but a direct call for violence should be, and I grant even that begrudgingly. Once we decide it's acceptable to draw lines, the only question is where they stop; ask ten people and you'll get ten different answers. Once you allow it all it takes is getting the wrong person in power who doesn't know where to stop, and then boom, heavy censorship. Once you have arbitrary, preferential censorship, it's no longer possible to productively criticize the government enforcing it or organize against them. Once you can't do that, they can violate any other rights they want while silencing all criticism and promoting a positive image to keep people in the dark.

> direct call for violence
That's where being a racist dickhead begins on my scale. I couldn't care less if someone proclaims they hate Muslims.
I completely agree that any and all infringement to free expression is a huge deal. I just haven't heard of anything happen in that direction that worried me - by German police and courts at least. Don't get me started on the press, though. Their subjective, biased coverage the issue made me puke, as did their sudden change of tone last week.

I've been very critical about how the government is handling the refugee problem from the start and not once have been called a Nazi or even been given disapproving glances. There a difference between critical scepticism and being a racist dickhead.

so does that explain why the equators are hot? ahhk thxz
#31 - iridium (09/18/2013) [-]
It's kind of simple. The people at the equator will never see the sun at anything more than a 23.5* angle away from directly above them. But when you get to the arctic circle, the sun will always be at least 43* away from being directly above them, and on the winter solstice it won't get any sunlight. upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/12/Seasons.svg < This image does a pretty good job of illustrating how a higher angle away from the equator and tropics of Capricorn and Cancer indicates reduced amounts of sunlight. So year round, at the equator the sun will average 11.5* away from overhead, and at the Arctic Circle it will average 67.5*.

That said, latitude alone doesn't determine climate or temperature. England has a very mild climate compared to a place like Wisconsin despite Wisconsin being 10 degrees south of the UK. It's a pretty general indicator, but there are places on the equator that actually get snow because of elevation. Also the atmosphere retains a fair amount of the heat and cold in the air, which is why nights aren't always the same temperature year round and why summers don't melt the ice caps every year.

Or rather not amount of sunlight but the density of the heat-providing rays.

#72 - carrotpotato (09/18/2013) [-]
Yeah. They don't get the same amount of sunlight but they do get the same time of sunlight. In the exact geometrical south and north pole there is 6 months of sun then 6 months of dark. In the equator it's half of each day for both.

i know hence why i said he was wrong...he said amount, not time.

Heh, you guys... If we're talking about how dark a place feels to humans, I think sun-hours is a good measure.

But if you want to get sciency, fine. Our eyes perceive light on a logarithmic scale. That said, to calculate how "dark" a place is, you'd have to calculate the sun's normal intensity, take the logarithm and integrate over a year. While the average daily sun-hours actually vary from 3.1 at the poles to 7.7 at the equator (taking the sun's angle of incidence into account), the perceived "brightness" only changes by a factor of 1.08. Helsinki, at 60°10'N is only 1.4% "darker" than the equator, not something a human could easily notice.
