Comment: Sexual dimorphism in corpus callosum's splenium... (Score 0) 136

by Jizzbug (#47233141) Attached to: The Profoundly Weird, Gender-Specific Roots of the Turing Test

Research has long proven that women have a different corpus callosum than men (which makes them better information synthesizers), where their splenium has more parallel channels of communication between the hemispheres of the brain (10 to 15 channels, whereas men only have 1 or 2 channels). Swedish researchers have proven that gay men have female-typed corpus callosum's. Turing's Imitation Game could have originated because as a gay man he realized he was better at pretending to be a woman than other men were...

The figure is obviously wrong. First of all, many individuals have multiple mobile devices, at least work and personal. Some people have additional tablets with mobile subscriptions, etc. Also, there are mobile subscriptions for alarm systems, for fleet vehicle monitoring and telemetry, for GSM modems used by SMS txt msg providers, etc., etc.

There may be nearly as many mobile device subscriptions as there are humans now, but it is definitely not 1:1 per capita worldwide.

This fact you point out further destroys the 2nd Amendment "where's the militia?" argument made by anti-gun people.

The 2nd Amendment was passed before there was a legal definition of "militia" at the federal level, because as you point out, the Militia laws had not yet been passed.

When the Militia laws were passed, it was REQUIRED that all males purchase guns by their own means.

GNOME Shell has the same problem... With developers worshipping their singular designer, Allan Day, and with Allan imposing his will despite tons of input from users about how his designs are not usable and are tracking behaviors from old versions OS X that Apples long ago admitted weren't usable and has since removed.

I see the problem resulting from this: Since 2010, European developers have eclipsed American developers in the Open Source community, in part because the US is experiencing another tech boom since ~2010, keeping the US devs out of open source and consumed with their professional work.

Our ancestors left Europe for a reason (European == You're-a-peon). These European devs don't have the benefit of that experience.

This was us (the U.S.) getting back at Russia for helping Iran capture that CIA drone by spoofing m-code GPS with GLONASS. Now we have demonstrated capability to disrupt GLONASS globally.

When GLONASS went live just before the drone was downed, we were still in the process of launching new satellites to regain GPS superiority (Russia had GPS superiority for a short time there).

From her testimony it is obvious that she has a case of Panic Disorder. Her condition can likely be treated with micro-nutrient supplementation, as is commonly done with pigs under stress in agribusiness who develop a form of cannibalism known as ear and tail biting syndrome.

Comment: Discovery Vault aka Secure Content Monitor (Score -1) 186

I worked on the software that taps government multi-function printer devices, auditing all scans, faxes, prints, and copies made by government employees.

The product was made by Perceptive Software, it is marketed by Lexmark. Search youtube for public product demonstration videos.

The system was intended to store all classified documents for full-text indexing and partial matching (to find snippets of sensitive information among 500 pages of hamburger recipes), but the government will probably use it in a hot-word or key-phrase mode, since storing all classified docs in it would create a single point of failure / single point of leakage.

Technology is dominated by those who manage what they do not understand.
