If only you had the maturity to see the wonderful irony in your statement. Everything would be perfect if only it weren't for "those other people", right? Think about that for a moment, then see if you can figure out why there is violence in the world. Here is a hint: it has nothing to do with "oldsters".
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
My YT account is so old that I guess it was grandfathered in and I never would associate it with G+ or create a G+ account for it (it isn't registered under a gmail email). They have finally quit bugging me to do this.
But it would be nice if I could comment on my own videos or respond.
I really HATE the forced association google tries to make with this. I don't NEED a unified account across all Google.
You are right. But only because nobody is actually looking at the problem. Comcast, Time Warner and COX are not the problem, they are the symptom of the problem.
The problem is last mile infrastructure ownership. Municipally owned last mile solves that problem. By pushing the problem from the last mile, to a more centralized COLO facility can solve the problem, by allowing Verizon, Google, Time Warner, COX, Comcast
This gives choice (missing currently) to the customer, rather than lock-in to a Franchise agreement holder.
By COLO, I represent RENTING space (to pay for the COLO facility) where all fiber is terminated. From there, you cross connect to whatever service provider's network the customer desires. It is just a place to house Physical Plant.

Your bank lets you perform transactions without being able to verify your identity via photo ID without sunglasses? Sounds like you should find a better bank.
Seriously? All they do is ask you to remove them for a moment so the camera (or the receptionis, or the teller) can see you without the glasses. Then you put them back on.
And guess what? The manager isn't going to do a damn thing until he can verify your identity, which will involve removing the glasses.
Taking on the 1938 German army would have been a relative cakewalk. The problem with Dunkirk (wasn't that a great victory?) is that the British stayed on the defensive, and by definition it's impossible to win whilst playing defense.
Add the Czechs and their surprisingly good army, and the Little Maginot Line (the Germans tested the fortifications after invading and found them shockingly sound) , and 1938 Germany has big problems. Its army gets bogged down in Czechoslovakia while the British drive for Berlin.
People always bring up this "educated, balanced" riposte to Chamberlain's infamous act. It's bullshit. Let's put the dagger in the back of this theory once and for all: you know who Chamberlain saw fit NOT to invite to the Munich conference? The Czechs! He gave them the middle finger and handed them a fait accompli. Don't even get me started about the great betrayal of Poland, a nation Britain was pledged to defend and yet did fuck-all to help. Fuck Chamberlain and fuck appeasement.

At least Star Trek solved the "endless assloads of free money from somewhere" problem that is endemic to socialism. On Earth in 2015, the rub is that eventually, you run out of other people's money. With replicators and antimatter energy, that's not an inconvenient truth any more.
No, there is not. For everyone you think there is, any religion can simply claim it was created that way or the supernatural will of some supernatural being and you have absolutely no way to factually test or refute that. Note, unless it is a matter of some religion saying X and the sites saying Y, any injection of your beliefs is only your opinion not fact. Now this does not mean any religion it true, its just that you have no factual basis to say it is not.
You are simply wrong.
Eh.. wont work. They will just tag you as the dork with the hot chick for easy reference to find the hot chick to show thier buddies. You will eventually have to list it as an alias if ever investigated for antthing.
That likely could have been stopped before poland was even invaded had the allies from WWI enforced the provisions of the versailes treaty and did something when germany remilitarized the rhine.
But yes,we often forget that Russis was aiding germany at the start of WWII.
Its interesting that you brought up the foreing aid aspect of military spending. Its also world security as most of Europe has demonstrated through history that whenever they have large armies, they tend to use them against each other. But your point is proven recently as Itally made a few threats against ISIS and had to walk them back when they realized ISIS forces outnumbered their own troop strength significantly. While not a permenant problem, it shows how little concern they had for their national protection because of the strength of allies.
Regular old glass blocks the vast majority of infrared. No special IR "emitters" are necessary. The lenses just look black to IR cameras.
Here's just one example which illustrates this very well.
