    oh come on...tucker is emphasizing a very valid point here...that he is an utterly dumb ****er...he is reinforcing the point so clearly that anyone with half a brain would be able to figure it out, you got to appreciate him for that...in a way it's selfless public service...

    For the record, the US uses the metric system 'to go to the moon'. In science and medicine, it's always the metric system.

    I wonder if Carlson also struggles with other bizarre measurement concepts like decade and century and millenium.

    People might not be able to read the paper in full, but this is pretty convincing evidence for the hypothesis that high crime rates in the 80s and 90s in urban areas was down to... atmospheric lead. And the subsequent decline in those crime rates has come as lead has been removed from the atmosphere.

    TL;DR, massive randomised control test conclusively demonstrates a strong causal link between removal of atmospheric lead and reduced crime rates.

    Yep, seemed convincing enough to me when I read these articles.

    Not an expert though.

    The theory has been around for ages, substantive evidence of a causal link is new though.

    Thought Spark might be interested given our discussion in the EU thread after the (equally ambiguous) murder of the politician in Germany.

    Didn't really give much thought to whether it would get the Anil stamp of approval.
