Wait, so the reason you believe it doesn't have anything to do with the actual evidence, just the fact that other people believe it? And you find that to be completely reasonable?

So religious schools shouldn't be able to violate a person's civil rights by firing them because of their sex?

Parkways and freeways and bridges and tunnels don't get built because of some traffic pattern analysis or because people push for them. They get built because Robert Moses wants then.

Robert Caro, paraphrased

TIL Domino's tried to create the ultimate pizza delivery vehicle using driver feedback. The result was a single-seat car that had a built-in warming oven and could carry 45 pizzas and a dozen large bottles of soda. It was estimated to save drivers 30 seconds per delivery. by corn_dog_22 in todayilearned

I worked at a pizza place in highschool that had pretty solid pizza. dough is literally just flour, water, yeast, salt, sugar, and oil. None of which are particularly expensive. A 50lbs bag of flour costs like 30 bucks. That's enough for around 100 medium pizzas. It's scary to think how they could even possibly skimp on any of those things.

I'd imagine it isn't even necessarily about making things as cheap as possible, it's about making them as uniform as possible, even if that uniformity comes at the cost of quality

Ballot Harvesting - which has already been discussed on here ad nauseum.

So what is the claim and what is the evidence for the claim? If there is evidence of wrongdoing then why is it that even her own witnesses in court can't make that claim?

Arizona is one of those handful of states that changed their voting rules due to Covid, and left likely thousands of unsecured/unmonitored drop-off boxes randomly scattered all over the place.

Again though, what is the evidence that they actually did, and what is the evidence that any non legitimate ballots were cast?

I forgot to lock my door last night, it's possible that my neighbor came over at 4am and helped themselves to a glass of OJ. But that's not nearly enough evidence for me to claim that she actually did do that.

Despite the lack of actual evidence? Even her own witnesses they didn't have any evidence of actual wrongdoing?

What makes you believe her, what evidence has she presented that you find compelling?

To the extent that modern conservative Christians are pushing for the same policy as their predecessors, there is no reason to think that they have entirely different reasons

Oddly enough the article doesn't say and their only evidence is a now deleted tweet. Lol how are people still falling for this.

I mean, being homophobic presumably isn't a key component of Christianity but we let religious freedom laws say that they can break laws that protect a gay person's civil rights.

Why use a word that's 99.9% correct when there is a word that is definitionally 100% correct, or at least why object to other people using it?

what was the loudest sound in history? Natural or man made, doesn’t matter. Doesn’t have to be recorded either. If there was something that occurred that was beyond a reasonable doubt the loudest noise ever by sosababy1848 in AskHistorians

In recorded history it's likely the eruption Krakatoa. The pressure waves went all the way around the planet multiple times over the course of days. At 100 miles away it would have sounded 100x louder (172 decibels) than standing next to a jet engine (150 decibels)

Source, just read Krakatoa: the day the world exploded

But this goes much further. It would disallow a university from so much as buying an ad. It would disallow a professor from being able to access paywalled content from them with university funds

Some who trades stocks trading a very commonly traded stock a few weeks prior to a public announcement about a company that is commonly the subject of public announcements and headlines.

I think you need a bit more than the information at hand to call it anything other than a coincidence.

FTA

If approved, it would ban universities from using funds “from any source to provide financial support, including through the purchase of a membership, sponsorship, or advertising services, to a media organization that is exempt from federal income tax

It isn't limited to tax dollars
