Agreed. When they were brought back suddenly they became all about making modern-day topical jokes (about Lady Gaga, Twitter, etc.) and throwing the whole "it's the year 3001" bit out the window. Plus, after Leela banged Zap Brannigan, again, willfully...something was just lost. In the sexing-up of the characters was another huge detraction.
All that to say, I bet if it had been brought back on Adult Swim, things would have been different.
The burden for accuracy should be on the data broker, and they should be liable if they sell incorrect data.
Yeah I wouldn't mind that one bit. Maybe this would be a different matter, but a couple years ago I almost wasn't given a job because the background check company flagged me as having a criminal record. The person had the same first and last name (but not middle), and birthday (but different year) as me but I was held up for a month and the owner almost moved on to different candidates because of this. It took very little to flag me as a crook, but the burden of proof then fell on my shoulder to exonerate myself with LexisNexus, for some guy's crime over a thousand miles from where I live.
People that say guns are designed for killing people are often the people that do not have any interest in them and do not know much about the other aspects of their uses
You make some good points, but all I could think of when I read that line was Homer using a gun to shoot open his beer can.
As opposed to not knowing what an ion is? If you slept through high school chemistry, Slashdot is happy to dumb everything down for you.
Great evidence of how far this place has fallen.
I don't think anyone who spells out "Slashdot" rather than typing"/." (you know because then the website would be http:///..com. The whole joke behind why this site is called what it is) is in a position to comment on how far it's fallen. I also don't see how the person who submitted the article explaining the simplest concept in the summary but not the more advanced ones is anything more than curious/funny. Hardly something to read into about the site as a whole.

Sorry, just picked up Skyrim again after almost a year. But, if your point is that at one point in time, very far off, these two 'hunks of rock' may have been attached then I suppose you're correct. I mean, if the Big Bang was an explosion of matter in space (at one point in time), these hunks of rock may have been very close to the matter that makes up yours or my body at one point. However, I'll trust NASA if they say that for our purposes, that on a smaller timescale, these two have nothing to do with each other.
