Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    In 1971, my uncle had a Cadillac with a telephone in it…..How many people in the world had a car with a telephone, I dunno, maybe the president of the US and my uncle? I remember calling him on it. You had to get patched through via an operator. It was very expensive to make a call, something like $2 a minute in 1971 dollars.
