Comment: ...and the wealthy shall live FOREVER! (Score 1) 692 692

Age reversal won't happen to everyone right away... you know who gets it first right... you betcha... the $$$ crowd. So think about it, you've amassed this giant fortune, and NOW you get to enjoy it forever and ever and ever.... meanwhile, all those who slaved to created that wealth, well... they just get to wither and die, leaving a dwidling population to be slaves to the ultra wealthy.

If this weren't conspiracy theory kind of stuff it would be downright scary!

Comment: Distribution of Information (Score 1) 260 260

Gosh people believed what a scientist had to say... WHAT A STORY... next thing you know people will be taking their doctors advice! Scientists by and large are a trusted segment of the public, with the public having an understanding of the scientific process and that scientists CAN be wrong. That's how our information works. Researchers do experiments and publish results. News outlets pick up stories and broadcast them to a wider audience. If this disinformation had been allowed to just stand on it's own merits, it would eventually fall flat on its face as other scientists put the information to the test. The only thing this journalist accomplished was damaging the credibility of scientists! *DING* I think we have our motive.

most incidents of wrongful imprisonment involve police investigators and prosecutors, both of which are heavily protected against any charges of wrongful imprisonment, malicious prosecution, and the like.

Maybe that's the part that needs to change. Take away some of those protections and then maybe you'll have prosecutors who will place the truth over their own careers.

No he wouldn't be wrong, but a better question to be studied would be "Would two male scientists doing the same research have their paper challenged in the same fashion?" because if you eliminate enough variables you have a higher probability of coming up with the correct answer.

I am an opponent of the death penalty, but one minute of holding breath is not the same. When you are holding breath, you have stored oxygen in your blood. After decapitation there is no more blood flowing.

...but there is oxygen rich blood already in the brain....

Comment: SAD... just f#$%ing SAD (Score 1) 538 538

Politicians really live in their own little bubble worlds when 99% of the ignorant masses are more tech savvy than our own lawmakers. The words "out of touch" seem woefully inadequate to describe the kind of mind numbing ignorance that we've come to expect from our own politicians. What makes it even more depressing is that this doesn't even come remotely as a surprise.

If this doesn't make a case for term limits then I have no idea what would. Some of these people would be ill suited to even push a mop at a fast food chain. These career politicians NEED time in the real world.. and I don't mean some cushy consulting job. I mean real labor where you actually have to scratch a living under the policies they've created, without their "connections" or someone to pull strings for them. They're not of the people and they certainly aren't FOR the people. They're just (and it actually pains me to say this) COMPLETE AND UTTER DUMB ASSES!

I honestly don't care if they're getting paid or not... 99% of them are so easy to spot it's laughable. Always look at their history, if it's mostly Russian conflict stories then *ping* They'll refer to NATO or Ukraine as fascist *ping* They LOVE to use a basic western first name and claim to be American. Ironically when they're pretending to be American they're typically support a conservative stance politically.
