I don't need your stinking protection, I've been doing just fine since 1993.
Now excuse me while this strange web site forces my browser to full screen and scans my Linux Box for viruses...
"The average American uses enough water each year to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool"
There is no freaking way I use this much water in a year. On the average I use no more than 300 cubic feet per month, that would be 3600 cubic feet per year. An Olympic size swimming pool holds 88,286.66721 cubic feet of water, so I call bull shit.
The energy sector will stop at nothing to over charge and fuck you till you're in energy poverty.
Am I the only one who believes that the potential for abuse exponentially out weighs any perceived benefits? This WILL be abused by government and law enforcement.
Just one more reason for me to abandon my Gmail, Google+ and Youtube accounts.
"A North West Counter-Terrorism Unit spokesman said, 'I also want to stress that this case is not about policing people's freedom to browse the Internet."
Bullshit, if this were the case he wouldn't be in jail now would he..
I used to have a set of Clackers in the mid 70's, nailed myself in the head once, smashed a finger or two but it wasn't long before the novelty wore off. Even had a set of steel tipped Yard Darts, never had an accident. Perhaps the coolest toy I ever had were the electrified versions of Hot Wheels called Sizzlers. You plugged them into a charging station that held four "D" cell batteries, was shaped like a gas pump and held the top button down for 60 seconds (I always held it down for two or three minutes), unplugged them, turned the power switch on the bottom of the car and raced them on a track...
I have never seen a AA battery that wasn't sucked dead in a few years just from the internal resistance of the battery itself. I suppose they're are referring to lithium batteries.
These so called "anti-trust" investigations seem to be more about government revenue generation than anything else.
Might be nice if I can do this with my trusty old HP-48GX. I once installed VT-100 (emulation) terminal software on it, connected it to a TNC (Terminal node controller aka AEA PK-88) and connected to my AX.25 packet 2 meter Internet gateway and used w3m to surf the Internet. Slow, but cool.
I work in seed enhancement, fortunately, I don't order clothianidin (Poncho) from Bayer Crop Science. However I do order Thiram, Captan and Allegiance (aka Apron FL) from Bayer. Most of these chemicals are used to control pythium, however I've always wondered if these were responsible for the bee hive die offs.
Just went there and got the same results. Couldn't think of a more deserved "go fuck yourself" slashdotting.
If the North County Gazette wants users to pay for reading more than one article, put up a fucking pay wall. Don't threaten to sue users for "theft of service".
