"I could care less" is usually said sarcastically as a stronger form than saying "I couldn't care less." The problem here is the absence of the sarcasm font.

Given that one significant figure is all that's necessary to communicate the point, the 1 and 3 are perfectly correct. They weren't preparing a program for CNC machining. An for you, pi is an irrational transcendental number, so your six significant figure is incorrect.

This would be a much better article if the author could get the units correct and not confuse kilowatt-hours with megawatt-hours and kilowatt-hours with kilowatts.
Unless all they had were some old WW I rifles, I am pretty sure they had magazines in their rifles, not clips.

The second amendment explicitly protects my right to carry a gun, unlike healthcare for which there is no explicit right anywhere in the constitution. Therefore, I demand that my employer pay for and provide me with the firearms of my choosing. Too bad I don't work for some left-wing organization. This demand would be fun.
You have to buy your plan to know what's in it.
Reference needs to be to Paul R. Ehrlich.
Reference needs to be to Paul R. Ehrlich.
"Interesting also, that Ehrlich was not an economist, agronomist or even demographer but rather an etymologist, an expert in insect biology." No insects or word studies here: Paul Ehrlich (born 14 March 1854 in Strehlen near Breslau – died 20 August 1915 in Bad Homburg vor der Höhe) was a German physician and scientist who worked in the fields of hematology, immunology, and chemotherapy. He invented the precursor technique to Gram staining bacteria, and the methods he developed for staining tissue made it possible to distinguish between different type of blood cells, which led to the capability to diagnose numerous blood diseases. His laboratory discovered arsphenamine (Salvarsan), the first effective medicinal treatment for syphilis, thereby initiating and also naming the concept of chemotherapy.
etymologist: the study of the history of words, their origins, and how their form and meaning have changed over time. Entomology: the scientific study of insects, a branch of arthropodology.
