Yep if it's done even when nobody's watching, THAT's kindness. If it's only done because there are cameras, that's called fear.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I hear that the trains are very timely as well!
Scientology has Xenu the space-devil, and the alien ghosts that implant themselves in everyone's bodies...
However, I still think their tax-exempt religious status should be revoked. It was originally rejected for legitimate legal reasons and was only conceded to them because of bullying (via lawsuit-DDoS).
Worryingly, I've noticed more mainstream religions are copying some of Scientology's business methods. "Prosperity gospel" basically copies the way they make massive real-estate investments and buy lavish luxuries for top officials using donations from followers. Some Christian boarding schools basically operate like Sea Org on land. I don't think the time is far off when tax exempt status for all religions will have to be revoked to clamp down on these abuses. Scientology has let the genie out of the bottle.
It hasn't been observed to do that...if RdRand was found to ever produce meaningful quantities of low-randomness output, then it should be eliminated as an entropy source.
No, it's not an issue.
RdRand could be 100% predictable and it wouldn't cause a problem.
Came here to say this.
Furthermore, is denying China access to certain Intel CPUs that much of a roadblock? They can buy elsewhere or even make their own. Maybe even make their own clones of these very Intel chips.
This pissing match is stupid on a Cuba-esque level.
Hahaha you're a moron, it's more like saying "The temperature in Phoenix, AZ could become colder from August to September." It's still relatively hot, but it's getting colder. It doesn't imply freezing. Same with acidic/alkaline. Nobody said the oceans were getting closer to pH 0. And since we're dealing with a system that's already more acidic than it should be, I'd say to try to sugarcoat it with "less alkaline" for anyone who doesn't know exactly where the pH should be is disingenuous.
If "more acidic" implies anything else, maybe you should loosen your tinfoil hat.
I wonder if there's any way to keep this methane from escaping? Even if it could be collected and flared off it would be a big improvement over letting it escape into the atmosphere.
Maybe in the far future humans will become like the Irken and the tallest will rule over us all
No, government control doesn't necessarily mean a loss of privacy, which I think also helps explain why right-wingers aren't against it: It's a gross invasion of privacy (which at least neoconservatives don't care about, because they "have nothing to hide" and don't mind the government in their bedroom) but it's not any kind of government control structure (in itself).
Furthermore, the NSA roughly falls under the "defense" part of government which in the eyes of the right, gets every free pass in the book of free passes and cartes-blanche.
This statement is mussing the tinfoil of the denialists and other right-wing nutjobs...I hope he does this some more! Trolololol! >:)
Where do the slopes diverge? They're practically on top of each other, unless you want to try the old "atmospheric vs. oceanic warming" argument...care for a go?
Climate change certainly did contribute to triggering the Syrian civil war:
AGW won't cause a quick Roland Emmerich apocalypse, but there are definitely more interesting surprises in store if we do nothing...and you can blame them on whatever you want, it won't keep them from happening.
So we'd be DDOSing (Distributed Dick Overload Strategy) the NSA?
Turning their day jobs into Chatroulette?
The people who call others "social justice warriors" can be called "social injustice enthusiasts"
