Well, technically I am, Puerto Rico is a commonwealth (Estado Libre Asociado, in spanish), it means that it's under USA sovereignty but it isn't technically part of american territory, as it is labeled as an "unincorporated territory"

Another thing is what it is in the practice, as #9 points out

But, still, I declare myself techically not wrong. The best kind of not wrong

Puerto Rico is considered a commonwealth of the United States (that's it's official status it accepts) and IS a U.S. territory meaning the U.S. constitution is the overruling law of the land (just like it overrules states constitutions it also overrules territory constitutions). This means that while it is allowed self governance the U.S. government is capable of over ruling any decisions it makes (though it is very rare). Also U.S. laws over rule Puerto Rican laws and its ability to negotiate with foreign countries is limited and must be approved by the U.S. congress (just like U.S. states but in general the U.S. doesn't care too much so long as we approve of the country)

Also all Puerto Ricans are US citizens (Puerto Rican citizenship has no meaning outside the boarders of the Unites States just like state citizenships) and they have non-voting representation in the U.S. house of representatives they are part of the U.S. military and there representation in foreign affairs is by the United States.

Although Spain does recognize Puerto Rican citizenship as being independent of U.S. citizenship. This seems to be due to Spain still being sour over loosing Puerto Rico to the U.S. to be honest....

Naw, man. Under US Law, in order for an area to become a state, it must first be a territory. Many people have tried to include Puerto Rico as a state, but only failed through vote. People have gotten so far as to mark Puerto Rico as a territory, which has its benefits and its drawbacks. It's the biggest reason why Puerto Rican birth certificates, passports, and IDs are all considered US identification, and why they have immediate citizenship upon their birth in Puerto Rica.

Fuck, man, I'm completely lost here. If it is not a state how can it be a territory? And what would be the difference between one thing and another?

#44 - Kamesakke (04/11/2015) [-]
States are more permanent, whereas territories can be annexed or can secede with much more ease. States are given a small amount of local regulation that can over-power a federal legislation, given it's not a heinous law to counteract (IE Murder). Also, states have certain taxation regulations that largely differ from Territorial taxation, to make it easier for annexation or secession.

you spanish people still think America is a continent. Like you know only you guys do that, everyone else knows it's wrong.
#34 - Kamesakke (04/11/2015) [-]
The Americas are in fact, continents. Go learn youself some geography, man.

I'll take the blame for the Puerto Rico thing, but come on...
#23 - anon (04/11/2015) [-]
anyway my point was that what you learn in any spanish language is might not be the correct one.

i know for sure that MANY things are taught wrong there

I'm legitimately interested in knowing what you say is taught wrong. Be it bait or not.
#24 - anon (04/11/2015) [-]
meh, spanish speaking countries*
#22 - anon (04/11/2015) [-]
no but seriously, you do learn that America is a continent, don't you? And there are six continent only (the wrong type of 6 continents tho, not like japan or russia)

for the sake of human advancement they don't need to be "right" they just have to be close enough that the discrepancies don't matter enough to throw a monkey wrench into the thing. Also if several tests prove a theory right and 1 proves it wrong you try and replicate the circumstances of the test, find out why it failed and adjust your theory accordingly until it's air tight enough the bring it to the scientific community to then try and poke holes in it.

Exactly. He asked if scientific laws are still subject to change, and they absolutely are, like you just said. We find out that we weren't right about something and modify our theory of it to fit the data.

It's very good. Especially if you like shows like 30 Rock, Community, and Parks and Rec.

Community pre-season 4?
#101 - somenights (03/09/2015) [-]
I like all of Community, but the show is just in line with that type of humor that a lot of NBC comedies seem to have (minus the office, I just don't like it)

#102 - dvdfaust (03/09/2015) [-]
I couldn't get into the Office either... and I'll have to retry season 4, it really felt different to me. Britta's performance in a relationship with Troy was way less convincing, and in general it seemed more like token silliness than stuff that made sense for the characters, even in an exaggerated way. Unrelated, but go back and watch the first episode again, then watch a later season one, and see how different the characters and cinematography are. It's really surprising.

I still think it would be deeply eye-opening to actually find life, big or small. I by the scientist, I mean those from TV and documentaries.

#408 - misfitxcreepx (03/05/2015) [-]
Oh absolutely. Like I said, finding micro-organisms on another planet would be huge. But it wouldn't compare to finding intelligent life outside Earth. That's also why those documentary and TV scientists focus on it rather than micro-organisms. They're trying to make money. Most people would rather watch something about finding other species we can interact with than just germs on some other planet.
