Modded off-topic? Bizarre. Grammar jokes are the heart and soul of Slashdot.
I think you misspelled "grammer".
Nope, he got it right. You got it wrong
I believe that Whoosh jokes are also part of the afore mentioned heart and soul jokes!
This will be usable for a few years, then you'll eventually have some plausible deniablity when it it over used
I also know from experience that a 50ml pot of SmartWater is enough to chemically mark every PC or electrical item in a school several times a year and last several years.
It's also very good for equipment recovery. It basically guarantees identification / return of stolen property if it comes into police hands. but with SmartWater once it's in police possession even the smallest tiny speck of SmartWater (which can be deployed even on hard-to-cleanse areas like across the PCB's of (unpowered) motherboards) or similar will link it to it's owner.
If this stuff spreads with the ease that TFA describes, it's going to get everywhere. How many law enforcement agencies do you think are going to take Joe Blow's word that they "only touched something that was touched by someone else, who I shook hands with?
Experiment: Spill some powered detergent with color safe bleach. Leave it in a public space for a day. Use a UV light to track its spread. Count how many people are now "marked" that were not the original spilling "criminal".
Yes, this product is uniquely identified, and easily indiscriminately spread. Just use Monsanto as an example of a unique item is being spread by the wind to people being accused of stealing.
Their policies store to store also hastened their demise. Their prices were on the steeper side, but there used to be a store on a couple of blocks away on my way home from work. Convenience did balance out price.
After moving to new location, for about a year, I tried to rent a game console so I could try before I bought an Xbox for Halo 2. I was told I had to put down a deposit that was more than the current selling price of the Xbox because I had only done 60 rentals with that store on a blockbuster account with nearly a thousand rentals (over many years). The associate acknowledged the prolific Blockbuster rentals, but that was store policy. I haven't been in a Blockbuster since.
I finally got them to stop trying to get me to come back when I explained that a local chain was always 3/4 to 1/2 Blockbuster's prices.
The case pending before the justices concerns a federal appeals court’s February decision ordering a university student to pay the Recording Industry Association of America $27,750 — $750 a track — for file-sharing 37 songs when she was a high school cheerleader. The appeals court decision reversed a Texas federal judge who, after concluding the youngster was an innocent infringer, ordered defendant Whitney Harper to pay $7,400 — or $200 per song. That’s an amount well below the standard $750 fine required under the Copyright act.
Harper is among the estimated 20,000 individuals the RIAA has sued for file-sharing music. The RIAA has decried Harper as “vexatious,” because of her relentless legal jockeying."

I don't know, my watch has been working just fine with the same motion, minus the grip of death.
That would be a shit load.
Metric or Imperial?
Would it work for multiple copies of Crysis? Say on a couple dozen VT220s?
Won't somebody please think of the Froggies!
...and the lambs and sloths, and carp and anchovies, and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit-bats and large chu..
...Skip a bit, Brother...
Or the Navy does a similar PR shoot. The Wrong Panel was in the screen shot, and we have to stop using the phrase "in excess of 400 foot", because the legible gauge was very much so "in excess".
I would maybe buy it as long as it's Gregg ruled.
But $10 says that it'll be available for $59.99 USD
Would that make you a "bad analogy" for BadAnalogyGuy?
[ponders for a moment] *head explodes*
Is it possible that this laser is so powerful that it could power additional pages of Wicked Powered?
Could it be used to lase at least one more story arc?
Damn our minimum wages, safe working conditions, evironmental laws and employee protection laws!
When profit is used as the only motivation, I do believe we've damned ourselves.
