Comment Doofenshmirtz must be an EU regulator. (Score 3, Funny) 179

I see that since the "Delete From My Mind-Inator" was destroyed, he is still trying to get this https://www.youtube.com/watch?... video forgotten.

I wonder how well this will work out? Do you think he calls this the "Right to Forget-inator"?

Comment House wiring needs (Score 1) 557

In-Wall speaker wire and other entertainment system wiring (with lines to a projector mount in the ceiling.).

12 Volt DC electrical wiring in addition to standard AC wiring. That way if you go Solar or Battery, you can keep your electrical systems from doing multiple wasteful conversions.

Ethernet wiring and Cable wiring. While wireless is handy, you need a good wired infrastructure to get your gear in to optimal places. Wired fixed equipment frees up your wireless bandwidth for your portable stuff (and is a bit more future proof since the wired standards are fairly well set).

Drains in the floors of rooms with water service. Much less flood damage when the washer or dishwasher breaks down somehow or a sink gets stopped up with the water forgotten.

Then you are compensating for the guy who only does 90% of his miles in Oregon, but the car is registered outside of the state.

How is this much different from just buying your gas across the state line and never buying Oregon gasoline?

Just go with the Odometer and ignore the sources of the miles. I'd rather be a little over-billed than give up information on where I've been to the state like that.

Comment I like the ghost town. (Score 5, Interesting) 146

The ghost town state actually makes it easier to follow a few things and keep up. My Facebook feed is long and Facebook's most-recent sorting likes to pick random dates out of the comments of the postings to "refresh" it. With what I follow on G+, a quick browse will catch me up on all of what I am following. It is a feature to me.

If it still puts you on the hook to produce something and you don't have enough to do it, I'd rather get the nothing and be able to walk away.

Imagine a Rockethub fund raiser to go to Mars that only reaches 80% of its goal. You'd get a ride to mars, but will you have enough food and a safe landing too?

Comment Re:thugs are also armed populace (Score 1) 1633

Gangs and Mobs are just competing governments and they already have guns, so this change in the law wouldn't really change anything compared to today. Murder and coercion are crimes either way.
The street thugs robbing 7-11s would get shot by armed 7-11 clerks (if corporate policies changed too).

HOLY MACRO!
