Comment: Means falling warmth (Score 1) 423

by Kim0 (#48073745) Attached to: Past Measurements May Have Missed Massive Ocean Warming

If the heat sink really is bigger than they thought, then Global Warming must have decreased more,
because of remaining heat from the sink.

The global temperature stopped increasing over 18 years ago. A big heatsink will dampen the temperature changes slowly. So an even global temperature which is being warmed by the heat sink, means that the warming has to have decreased.

In other words: A big heat sink is a sign of global cooling, not warming. And the lack of people pointing out this rather obvious physical connection, is a sign that they are charlatans, or quite stupid. And yes, I am a real physicist, not a political appointee pretending to be one.

Comment: Impossible physics (Score 1) 201

The lens is just too small for 4K. It is impossible for that many different photons to pass through it at the same time. Photons are in practice about one millionth of a meter big, so about 1000 could fit beside each other passing through a 1 mm lens. But this is only valid for wide angle pictures, fish eye optics. Real phone cameras use just a limited angle, a limited view of this, removing even more photons. Even 1080p is often more than the cameras can really do.

There seems to be more NSA shills here now, using faulty logic to defend NSA, such as crypto being too slow then, and that it is right to withheld crypto.

The choice of using crypto on the net would have been nice to have back then, for stuff like protecting people, nations, businesses, even if the crypto was slow. So the job of NSA is obviously not to protect USA, but weaken it, and others. There were faster crypto back then, which of course also was weaker, but could have been strengthened by such methods as longer keys and hardware.

It is impossible to make a hash function that gives one hash to a set of similar genes, because there will always be too many near ambiguities.
There are however other ways of doing things that behave like hashes. I made the best method for this for fingerprints, so I should be contacted for stuff like this.

When you're on a jury, you have a duty to both the accused and your nation to consider evidence fairly, within Constitutional constraints. Being prevented from seeing evidence would, to me, be all the reason necessary to give a verdict of 'not guilty.'

Absence of evidence really IS evidence of absence, as proved:

Magnetism can be explained.
One starts with electrostatic fields, and separate it into two, one negative, and one positive.
One then make relativist dilation of these fields, and add them together.
Then one have electrostatic plus magnetism.

In other words: Magnetism is the relativistic
  difference between the field from the nucleuses standing still in a wire, and the electrons moving.

The reason the prosecutor can make those charges is because that's the law. I agree that the law is too strict, but you can't blame the prosecutor for that.

Oh yes, you can, as was established in the Nuremberg trials after World War 2:

Following orders, such as the law, even when threatened with death for disobedience, is not an excuse.

So the prosecutor is guilty in the same way that many german soldiers were.

Or in other words: Damned if you do, damned if you do not.

Fortunately the validity of the scientific theory of Global Climate Change doesn't rest on whether, or not, Black Parrot provides a citation for every comment he/she makes on Slashdot.

Actually, it does.
This absence of evidence is evidence of absence of validity.
And your answer is evidence of your incompetence.

But why stop at evidence? I can prove that I am right:
