IOW, you have no argument. Of course language changes, but it changes amid discord. In your absurd notion of language change, you would poll all speakers of a language (if you could decide who is a speaker of a language) then at some point of majority usage language would have changed. One speaker fewer, no change.

Sorry but your entire approach to this is riddled with so many ontological problems regarding language and otherwise.

Really? You got all of that out of "Languages change. Get over it"?

Internet forums have the tendency to attract people who are extremely pedantic (or should I say, "online personalities" who are extremely pedantic).

Because there are so many more on the internet who are children who need to be led.

Speck, meet plank.

I would agree with you in the relative degree to which the respective posters need led.

Even though the meteorite was not connected to the asteroid that is approaching Earth today, it does raise issues about humanity's plan in case an asteroid does have Earth in its sights. (Tyson also tweeted that the asteroid will one day hit Earth, for sure. Not clear where he got his information, though.)
What gets me is the CNN reporter who recently asked Bill Nye, "The Science Guy", if the asteroid passing by the earth today was caused by global warming.

It's kinda funny that an anonymous Russian military source claimed they shot it down (which was denied on an official level). That statement apparently has no factual basis or support and simply came from a local newspaper quoting an anonymous source, which was later refuted by officials.

That does bring up a good idea though, with technology like this:

CRAM Phalanx Anti-Missile Defense:
http://youtu.be/qLmBfWowLhg
http://youtu.be/ILcVt9p7cug

MTHEL Laser Anti-Missile Defense:
http://youtu.be/LThD0FMvTFU

RAFAEL's Trophy System:
http://youtu.be/-2IqZhonKzU

I wonder if we could eventually develop it to a point where instead of intercepting a 15lb missile going 115m/s, you could intercept a solid, several-thousand ton object going 15km/s. Obviously that probably is a long way off technology-wise. But I think it definitely would be something we need to think about.

Interesting that this happened on the day that all our attention was focused on the little asteroid which passed by some odd hours later.  The meteor sneaked up on us. Undecided
