Black holes and neutron stars are both examples of stellar remnants, where fusion has stopped, so they're not emitting nearly as much energy as previously, just residual effects of temperature, magnetism and gravity. In the case of black holes, we've been assuming that the radius had collapsed to the point where the escape velocity was greater than the speed of light, hence, "black". Even if that isn't the case, they're not necessarily going to be easy to spot.

The whole point of being the secret police is that they're the SECRET fucking police. We've allowed literally half of the government agencies to be consolidated under one uber-agency whose charter is some nebulous bullshit about "keeping the fatherland safe". And then people are SURPRISED when it follows the example of the Gestapo and the KGB.

As a couple of data points on the thin-skinned study, I had two different people (nicks "Libertarian_Geek" and "c5402dc53929211e1efb") go to the trouble of making me their "foe" yesterday. Try to imagine my sorrow that two random Libtards on the Internet don't like what I said.

Damn right. People can either choose to be poor and work at Wal-Mart and mooch food stamps from the rest of us, or they can simply decide to move to New York and become hedge fund managers.

Libertardian: n. 1. An anarchist who wants to do away with government, but expects police protection from his slaves, judicial enforcement of contract law, and the free and unfettered use of a modern and magically maintained infrastructure. 2. Someone blithely unaware of the consequences and logical inconsistencies of the nonsense they're babbling.

The bogosity meter just pegged.
