now my/our expectation on bad topics (or rather ads) from
Just my first thought too but...
TFS is actually correct, as it is taken directly from the article.
And, no it don't says it produces it IN the star, but that the star produces it. That is, if the star produces the compounds around it, it is still the star that makes is, just not inside it.
So for a long long time in
of a world free of stupid copyright and stupid patents.
of a world with considerably less greed.
of a world with people thinking of what is best for us and not what is best for me.
of a world like in a dream and not in a nightmare.
But as long as I don't migrate to a different planet I have to stop dreaming, because it is a total waste of time.
He got his Aspergers Syndrome diagnosed in a week.
I have been on the waiting list for getting my Aspergers Syndrome diagnosed for 2 years and I expect to have a few more to wait, since I'm not prioritized (single, no kids,not a teenager and not caught doing a crime).
Looks like it's time to travel to UK and commit a crime (that I can hope to get away with too if I'm lucky).
Personally I don't see how having AS could make him not understand what he did was illegal, but it's his lawyers job to find anything that can help him in court. And the judge/jury job to see if it matters, and that haven't been done so far.
and have their entire college fund taken care of from day one.
It will cost the parents exactly $0 to get this operation done here in Sweden, and collage is free too, you even get a small monthly payout while you study (most need to take a student loan to get thou tho).
I know, horrible, right?
From what you have written I guess you are from the "land of the free", so I'm waiting for your troops to liberate me from this evil.
In Sweden you can't adopt a Swedish child, you can only become a foster parent, stupid as it is.
So the only option is to adopt from another country like china, eastern Europe or Africa.
That mean the child wont look like you (most Swedish are still blond and blue eyed, adoptable kids are not). For many people that don't matter, but I guess for most it does.
For me it is way better to "actively discourage 1/3 of our population from being involved in the discussion" than close to 100%.
My government (Swedish) don't give a rats ass about what I think or the rest of the population. It is actively making almost every citizen a criminal with new laws that only serve US corporations, it is actively helping US spy on it's citizen (breaking many laws in the process), it is taking away our rights, our courts are breaking constitutional laws without any reprimands. Our Secretary of State was involved (board member if my memory serve me right) in a company that have done mass murders in Africa in the hunt for oil.
An I know most western governments are going down this road to hell.
And how would they communicate instead? Via a custom build forum that none uses? To get feedback from 2/3 of the population is probably the most ANY government in history have done.
Iceland and Norway are the only two (as far as I know) countries in the west that are not going strait to being a police state. And yes, I have thought of migrating as I don't at all like the express road to hell we are on. In 50 years we will have history classes in school where the students will ask why no one cared or did anything (like what happened in Germany around WW2).
Yeah, I hate Facebook as much (or more) than anybody else, but if the devils tool can be used to stop the trip to hell, I'm all for it.
Now I can finally kill all my future plans on buying any CoD game.
I have been kicked in the nuts over and over and over. But finally they give me the carrot I need to stop giving them my money.
Sure if I get an evolving world to play in (like MMORPG's) I could pay. But to just play normal games with campers/cheaters/teamkillers in random non dedicated servers I could just continue to play old CoD's.
Give me kind of an free dedicated server in the mix. Then $8 might not be bad... And then Hell froze...
There are more then 400 nuclear plants in world.
And with modern plants few or any has been sick or killed by living close to a nuclear plant. Workers are another story but I bet just mining coal has cost 100x more lives/sickness than all nuclear plants anyway.
And the Chernobyl reactor is nowhere close to the German reactors today. We have actually learned from that accident (how strange it might be...).
So with modern reactors we have close to zero sick/killed due to having a nuclear plant in the backyard. So if we divide "close to zero" with millions of people with reactors in their backyard, we get way closer to 0.0001% that X% even in a life time.
Sure, we must still demand better safety. It can always improve, and if it don't improve it might decline (due to lack of accidents). So we can actually thank Japan for helping us improve our safety (by reminding us it is dangerous if done wrong).
And even in Fukushima it isn't in the X% range WITH a huge accident.
Don't get me wrong. We MUST close down all fission plants. But WHEN we have a better alternative and not worse.
If I get to choose between 100% chance of being slowly boiled to (near if we are lucky) death (all problem with coal plants incl greenhouse effect) and a 0.1% chance of being shoot in the head (gigantic global nuclear catastrophe).
Guess what I'd choose...
I wish that was true. But sadly it isn't. Or rather, yes there are better alternatives but:
And I know Vattenfall (Swedish power company) have plans on expanding with more coal plants in Germany. I can't seem to find that article, where they had to move a complete town to get to the coal under it.
So at the moment Germany are expanding their coal plants, and what do you think will happen if they shut down all nuclear plants? Less or even more coal plants?
It isn't THAT hard to figure out...
And take it from one that have suffered (I'm living in the north of Sweden) from both nuclear (Chernobyl accident) contaminating of our animals, mushrooms and berries from the forest and dead forest from acid rains (from coal plants in Germany, Poland and more, as we don't have it our selfs) I know how it feels to be the one suffering for others need of electricity.
But, the effect from the Chernobyl accident are soon gone but the coal plants (with all negative sides) will continue to be a problem for hundreds or thousands of years (mostly the CO2 but even other stuff).
If I had to choose between burning coal and fission reactors, I'd keep the nuclear.
Yeah, I know people are scared because of what have happened in Japan, but I STILL rather have 100 nuclear plant in my backyard with a 0.0001% chance of killing or making me sick than one coal plant that are 100% sure to be bad (1) for my health.

"Why You Shouldn't Panic Over Mac Malware"
Nope. I don't worry at all, and I guess that few do.
Because I and most other don't own a mac. That must be the obvious answer...
(Too lazy/not interested to read the summery or the article)
"but I have no desire whatsoever to live in a society that actually tries to decide who and then enforces it"
I get that you have great parents?
If you had shitty parents, that for example rape you, hit you, that uses heavy drugs and so on I bet any amount your view would be different.
I always say that it's hard as hell to get a drivers licence (in Sweden at least) but anyone are allowed to be a parent.
"And the only way you get to enforce that is a policy of eugenics, forced abortions, and sterilization."
You know that there are a form used for almost everything else in the world, education. Why not FORCE people to go for a parent class for say 3 month with exams. And the quarterly checkups on the kids and yearly exams for the parents. Like we do with almost anything else in the world, with farm animals for example.
I didn't have the worst parents possible, but my father are a true psychopath that NEVER should have been allowed to raise kids. There are actually stricter rules for a farmer with animals that it is for parents.
You know that "Then those families shouldn't have children" don't mean that the kids wouldn't be allowed to be born, you can take kids away from bad parents (some time it's just one that is bad). And even if you don't take the kids away from the parents there are multiple other ways to get situations under control.
There are a system in use that SHOULD stop bad parents, sadly it don't work as well as it should.
I have been waiting for a bit "normal" search site to get sued (okej, they haven't here but almost the same) so that we can see how absurd that torrent search sites get sued.
Yes, there are a bit that differ from Isohunt/Piratebay and Google/Yahoo/Bing but not much. In Google I can search for torrent files and find the same pirated content.
But the main difference is that the big search sites have money for good lawyers while torrent sites don't.
Oh, and Google actually host "pirated" media (books, pictures and so on) while none of the torrent sites does.
So for me it is as it always have been. Large corporations can do what the fuck they want while ordinary people can't do even close to the same thing.
