Why is the sky blue?
The sky is blue because of how the light from the sun reflects off of our atmosphere. White light (like that from our sun) is actually comprised of all of the colors of the rainbow. When the sun's light hits the particles of our atmosphere, it is scattered into its different colors. Because blue light is of a shorter wavelength, it "scatters" more than the other colors. The different wavelengths of light can be visualized here: Click the waves to pause.
Guns in the home are harmful
Politics, Free Speech
Data has consistently shown that owning a gun does more harm than good. In the case of having a gun in the home, data shows that guns are far more likely to be used in a negative way than in self defense. It has been shown that for every justifiable use of a gun in the home, there are 4 unintentional shootings, 7 assualts or homicides, and 11 attempted or successful suicides. Pretty damning graph. In another case it was shown that suicides are actually more around 34 times more likely than using a gun in self defense.
