Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Well, at least now that you read the article you went from 'disaster' to 'disrupt'. Thank you for so eloquently making my point.
and what did your giant attention span gain you in this situation? oh, you agree with the "opinion" without RTFA and determining that the end result will most likely not be a "garish ecological disaster." Next time, try fact. All the self-esteem building with none of that messy confusion.
You lost me at "I'm sure". Everything after this is opinion, humble or not. I hate to be that guy but please, RTFA
Once we have AI and it starts playing "Civilization", we will become the next smartest thing on the planet. Expect our betters to treat us about the same as we treat our primate cousins. Some of us will be left to roam in the wild, some will be harvested for lab experiments, some will be put in zoos and the rest will be hunted for our teeth which will be ground up into an aphrodisiac for the robots.

By getting this out there now, it can be written off as "old news" come election time. Savvy news media types know that the best time to expose the skeletons is months in advance. Savvy politicians know this too so expect more of these types of stories being "leaked" to the sympathetic press teams in the next few months. Meanwhile, the opposition is gnashing their teeth and hoping that they are able to reserve most the things that could discredit Hillary until the very last moment.
Another thought occurs to me as well; it seems that every time something like this happens to a liberal candidate, the majority of comments are along the lines of "oh it doesn't really matter because all politicians do this". As if it's expected. I recall the Earth shattering k-boom that rocked the planet when it was revealed that Sarah Pallin used gmail when she was Governor. The amount of ZOMGICANTBELIEVEITHOWSTUPIDANDILLEGALANDIMMORALANDJUSTPLAINDOWNRIGHTBAD that is. Yes, they all do it. Some of them do it for the purposes of obscuring and avoiding exposure. Some of them do it because they are lazy and/or stupid. I'm not proposing that Hillary needs to be put in the public square and become the target of rotten fruit. Just keep this in mind the next time a Republican is exposed and treat the occasion with the same level of contempt.
Had AC said 'sugar' I would have had to modify my statement. You are technically correct but that is a distinction without a difference. And, splenda.
Is alcohol a drug? Yes
Is nicotine a drug? Yes
Is pot a drug? Yes
Is meth a drug? Yes
Is coke a drug? Yes
Is a lollipop a drug? No
I don't need the government to tell me. I believe pot should have the same legal standing and requisite controls as booze. So, I support the notion that legalization of pot should happen. But your analogy doesn't work. Also, you state that you 'believe' it is still legal to beat women in some states. I don't 'believe' that to be true. Regardless, that has little bearing on the subject at hand. Notice, in my response to your comment, I have not attacked your character or in any regard attempted to insult you. Make a counter to my opinion without being insulting and I'll consider it. Note: Not AC
Every time you trot out this known falsehood you sound like an idiot. They were political organizations that were required to do more work to prove that they were following the law and not taking advantage of hype in one area or another. The groups targeted were both left and right leaning groups and the leftists groups were the only ones denied anything. Stop lying or being misinformed. I'm so sick of people who can't see that they are being manipulated by political entities against their own self interest acting as the mouthpiece for their overlords. I'm not saying it's an issue that affects one political party more than another, but currently conservatives seem to be the ones more full of stupid. No one should be proud to be ignorant. We have enough real issues to deal with that this kind of childish distraction just gets in the way of getting things most Americans already agree on done.
Small issue with your "known falsehood"... The IRS Inspector General reported that in fact, the IRS DID target conservative groups to a greater extent than non-conservative. This report is what started the whole noise machine in the first place.
Good thing you didn't read the whole thing and only brushed past the synopsis. Glad you came to give your boring opinion. Sorry, I should have phrased that better. Thanks for telling us you are bored.
1. Net neutrality, yes
2. Health care, no
3. Educational Standards, no
4. Minimum Wage, maybe, sometimes
5. Who to hire, no (unless not a legal resident)
See, it's possible to have a nuanced opinion about social, economical and other issues without being an ideological opinion bot. People (read you) that appear to only be able to see in black and white are often wrong a great deal of the time. Those (read me
If you respond, I'll be more interested in how you parse my reply in order to understand what I'm saying than I probably will be with your short FU.
Still, this space burial is unusual for NASA—and certainly for the rest of us—but it’s actually not all that unusual for the private space travel industry. In fact, the remains of dozens of men and women have been fired into space over the last 20 years, many of which are still orbiting us today, as I found out chatting with the man who sent them there."
