As a society, we have created a few legally protected categories for groups that have historically experienced vicious and extraordinary persecution. You clearly don't fall into that category, given what you have said about your background and history.

Snicker snort. You have it all wrong. We have created a few legally protected categories for people with strong lobbies.

Common decency and self-respect should dictate that people like you refrain from claiming to be a member of such a group, but obviously you think differently. Of course, you'll eventually discover that you're mainly hurting yourself anyway.

As usual, you're a racist and you don't even know it. I've found that most racists believe their views to be justified. It's not me that puts me into this group. And I get prejudice from both sides, to boot. You are an exemplary example of the tedious kind of racism which I've only seen more and more of throughout my life, the kind that comes from people who think they can't possibly be racists.

If the NSA is probing into an American's smartphone without a judicially authorized warrant, then the NSA is acting criminally. If this is true, there is no fucking way that Snowden should be prosecuted.

This is HUGE, because isn't metadata transmitted over the public airwaves; this is data stored inside a person's private device--where the person has a legitimate expectation of privacy.

There is no possibility of a NSA figleaf providing a half-assed justification for this kind of an intrusion. This kind of stuff is CRIMINAL and the persons doing it are CRIMINALS.

This is maximum bad.

At some future point I can see human-embeddable devices becoming commonplace, and this is a beta proving ground for the concept. The phone is an accessory people carry everywhere... shrink it and figure out a way for batteries to be charged through motion or vibration and have much improved recharged cycles. I can see someone getting an ear implant to go along with it.

May not happen in our lifetime, but it's not so far out there as to be impossible either. Think of the Human+ movement.

Once the count was on and I started to see a few more votes in that pile for the liberal democrats, I knew it was going to take a sizable proportion off the mainstream party in error. Having a look at statistics though, where I was working and surrounding regions had informal vote rates of 12% to 15% (much higher than the national average). It's also a labor party stronghold, which is the party who just got knocked out.

It's also worth pointing out that the particular ballot paper was enormous, over 1m long, 110 candidates for 6 positions, 35 parties and can be very confusing to explain to people who barely speak english, on how to make their vote formal, let alone read the 6.5 point print on who they're voting for.

As in, if you have a sample rate of 48,000Hz, you can play back a frequency of 24,000Hz (already above the range of human perception). Higher sample rate = more high frequencies you can't hear.

"ultrasonic sinusoids as high as 120 kHz have been reported as successfully perceived."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultrasound

I have to wonder how accurate the anecdotes we get about hearing are... 20kHz seems just too damn conveniently ROUND of a number to be the actual upper-limit. I'm middle-aged and I can hear 20KHz without a problem, though of course I shouldn't be able to do so... Sadly I don't have much in the way of reliable equipment that can substantially exceed 20KHz, so I can't even test the actual limits of my hearing.

In my experience, you get better government when there are more opinions at the table. The occasional election of people from minor parties (Greens, Pirates, Libertarians, etc...) makes it more likely for there to be objections to the really awful policies that the mainstream politicos try to force through. Even if you don't necessarily agree with what the guys have to say, they're probably a better choice than the typical minions of the expected 'lesser evil'. As such, it's good news when these sorts of guys get in... even if it was possibly 'an accident'.

$250,000 is a LOT of money to spend in the audio production world. Personally I would much rather spend that on a huge mic locker, top of the line preamps, acoustic treatment etc.

I'm as anti-smoking as it gets (not anti-smoker, that's a strawman), but I don't give a shit about e-cigs being used by existing smokers. What I do want to avoid is people getting addicted to nicotine through e-cigs and then either getting stuck with those or moving on to other tobacco products. I find it fine as a lesser evil for existing smokers who have trouble stopping, but it's still harmful for you and it's costing you a lot of money, taxation or not.

There's a fine line to draw in order to help existing smokers transition to them (since they're evidently better than actual cigarettes) and discouraging non-smokers (especially teenagers) from trying them out. By painting the opposition as nutjobs, all you're doing is looking like a nutter yourself.

In a rebound from 2012's record low an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia's northern shores, days before the annual re-freeze is even set to begin.

The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year, forcing some ships to change their routes.

A leaked report to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) seen by the Mail on Sunday, has led some scientists to claim that the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century."
