Comment: Tyson's is correct but Bad Astronomer's better (Score 5, Interesting) 438

by Caledfwlch (#45125509) Attached to: <em>Gravity</em>: Can Film Ever Get the Science Right?
OK, I saw the movie, it is awesome in the true sense of the word awe, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The special effects are great, the story line simple and engaging. The the effects, especially the interior shots, are very detailed and the few technical issues didn't pull me out of the film to a large degree. While Tyson's comments are correct I think the link below from Bad Astronomer is a more interesting and full description of the issues: http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2013/10/04/ba_movie_review_gravity.html

Comment: evasion (Score 1) 582

"I believe in evading and disintermediating the state", hmmm, so does he use the highways payed for by state and federal taxes to pick up the parts needed to make the gun or used by USPS/UPS/FedEx etc. to deliver the parts? I'm sure if his house is on fire or he or a family member have a medical emergency that he'll be turning down help from the emergency responders.

Comment: "ignore the court's order"... not quite (Score 1) 249

Actually, from TFA, "Apple said that if the court found in Motorola's favor and instructed Apple to pay more than $1, Apple would pursue all possible appeals against the ruling." which isn't the same as ignoring it, unless you have a citation from somewhere else.

In case of injury notify your superior immediately. He'll kiss it and make it better.
