"which were protected by thick walls of steel" Iron eating bacteria are working on that right now.

Compromise. Allow them to name the facility after one of their gods and more importantly setup a scholarship in astronomy for native Hawaiians. In the future a few native Hawaiian astrophysicists or cosmologist would totally change the picture.
Kennewick man is an anomaly with no reasonable shared heritage of any contemporary tribe. I suspect the native american opposition to study of Kennewick man is an unreasonable fear of weakened land claims. Totally BS.
When it was surmised that Kennewick man was caucasian I did like the neopagan group that claimed Kennewich man as one of their own and pressed to have their ancestor further studied.
What could be more honoring, holy and sacred than a telescope peering out into universe?
Sounds like an objectivist utopia
"Hacker Oscarv wanted a PDP-8 mini computer" the question needs to be asked... why? This is part of humanity I just don't understand. An infinite number of useful potential projects lay before me and the thought of playing around playing with or restoring 'vintage hardware' is just opportunity cost.
In all likelihood it was not the Roundup. In animals studies they inject or ingest glyphosphate directly into the animal without a statistical effect so a dog laying around probably would not be the cause. In fact the dog laying around then coming in the house where people pet the dog would end up probably get the greater exposure.
Sorry about the dog none the less
I don't think Gnome 3 is shit at all, plenty of people, including myself use it happily. Gedit? Its fine.
Then I think you are in the minority. Case example. I set up a set of workstations with Centos 6 and Gnome 2. Several teams of visiting scientists and engineers with Windows and Mac background (none have ever used Linux on the desktop) were immediately productive and even commented on how well the GUI was to use.
I started to "upgrade" to Centos 7 and Gnome 3 and they were lost and confused and starting getting complaints.... Intuitive things like "Why can't I just right click the application and add to the launcher?" or "where the hell is the minimize/maximize button - who in the right mind would remove that?".
See the code words here... "weather" and "earth" in the same paragraph. This is going to tick off Ted Cruz and the extreme conservative republican base.
Maybe this explains Bill O'reilly's Walter Mitty moments.
Or the eye of someone else or a priceless painting. Old memes never die they just get recycled.
Snowden is a very intelligent individual.
Right so intelligent that he unwittingly played a part in Putin's propaganda TV show.
To implement this would require a change to the OS, file system, system utilities (ie ls, find, etc) and every content creation application out there.
And then how would one do simple things like find all $filetype within the file system. It would invariably involve a shorted acronym for the file type that is provided to system utility such as find.
And why can't malicious programs mess with the hidden file type attribute?
The file extension is soooo simple and descriptitive... why would one want to add a hidden file attribute that requires a special application to change or set it.
