I'm so sick of this Idiocracy I'm about ready for a nice benign dictatorship.

Technical Illusions product doesn't have nausea problems. Jerri Ellisworth is a genius. I first found her when I googled "how to make a transistor at home."
The author of this article obviously doesn't understand how republicans think. Areas that vote republican these do so because they are trying to suppress the (often sizable) minority of poor black people who live in their area. So the republicans in Mississippi, for example, don't WANT the poor black people in Mississippi to have health insurance. Especially if there is any possibility that it will cost them a penny anywhere, ever. The results of this survey make perfect sense if you look at it from that perspective.
Tides come in, tides go out you can't explain that.

Alternatively you could have really good intel and just capture and jail anyone who trys to make the next great killing machine. I *don't* buy into the mutually assured destruction idea, because it's incredibly unstable. All it takes is one crazy person one time to destroy the whole world. Especially if we keep letting weapons get more and more destructive.

In my opinion, it's foolish to develop any weapon technology you don't want used against you. Historically weapon technology has never been successfully contained. If you can't keep nukes out of North Korea you can't keep any weapon out of anywhere.
Watch Thunderfoot's commentary on her before you judge. He points out that the game where she demos the "necrophilia", a) it was HER playing it and b) players lose points for killing innocents.
Law enforcement people I have heard speak on the subject say that the cameras will easily pay for themselves in reduced legal expenses.
Don't assume that it won't pass. Usually they don't but the one here in Tennessee did.
Soon on the cosmic scale perhaps. I will probably be several hundred years at best.
As far as I can see it is NOT fixed. It's just that it hasn't finished flagging all the different versions that were posted to different channels.
If there were actually a God, Theology would be science.
