I'm pretty sure stone flakes are a hallmark of human-like intelligence. Other animals fashion tools, yes, but to my knowledge, not cutting tools.
Before IS and their Al-Shabaab buddies come and blow those non-muslim relics to smithereens...
I think the only thing the OpenSSL bug shows is how flimsy the underlying framework of the internet is. Most of the shit we all use, trust and take for granted was coded in someone's basement over the weekend a long time ago. All it takes is one clever guys to take a good look at the code to exploit it, and it's probably fair to say he'll be the only one to review the code ever...
It pays better to exploit the bugs...
What can this do that emacs can't?
Keyboard shortcuts that don't give you carpal tunnel in 2 minutes flat.
So it's super-efficient and all... if you intend to move no farther than 10 ft forward.
For greater distances, you could, say, keep the balloon constantly inflated with some kind of pump. And then, to save unnecessary weight and complication, you could do away with the balloon and let the pump shoot out the back of the vehicle directly.
I shall call my invention a hydrojet. Genius!
No, it's time to apply the law.
How in hell the voters from Britain as well as from America allow such things to happen in the first place??
A true democracy works thanks to the four boxes of liberty (soap box, ballot box, jury box and ammo box).
Our so-called "democracies" have two more (ice box and idiot box) that are more important to people than the four others: as long as people are stuffed full of junk food and can watch the football game on TV, they feel free enough.
National espionage agencies operate outside the law these days anyway.
It's such a big company it's in plural.
I sure hope his hack is free/open-source.
So this-or-that company promises you unbreakable encryption or that they won't poke their nose in your data. Do you trust them? I don't. All it takes is a little firm chit-chat from the national security agency of the country your data is hosted in, and your "safe" data isn't safe anymore.
If you really insist on putting files and shit in the cloud, encrypt it yourself before uploading it. Better yet, run your own server and provide yourself with your very own fucking cloud. Those who want real security aren't lazy and do the work themselves.
The best use I ever found for the Nintendo Power Glove was jerking off, as it felt like Vader giving me a handjob. Kind of like doing it after sitting on your hand for a while, but more high tech. And best of all, that activity didn't even require turning on the console.
It's clear that while not all muslims are terrorists, almost all terrorists seems to be muslims, how about a targeted approach. Normal people know that the problem at the moment is islam, why can't politicians see it.
By the same logic, not all humans are terrorists, but all terrorists seem to be human. How about targeting all humans for surveillance?
Oh wait, that's exactly what they wanna do...
