Comment: "Kaspersky's relationship with the Kremlin" (Score 4, Informative) 164

Kaspersky Lab researchers have discovered key details about the now-infamous Stuxnet virus, which was deployed by the U.S. and Israel against Iran's nuclear facilities. Kaspersky analysts later uncovered Flame, which the Washington Post found was another American-Israeli cyberweapon against Iran.

Anyone who thinks that Kaspersky isn't in bed (voluntarily or not) with the Kermlin is delusional.

Depends on which is more practical: move the reservoir water to the city, or the the grey water to the farms?

We *know* that the people-generated grey water is already where the people are, and I'm betting that the reservoir water is closer to the irrigation needs.

Do you not realize that:
(1) Municipal sewerage systems are *not* allowed to dump "black water" into rivers & lakes? Los Angeles is no different.
(2) Municipal water supplies all across the country have been processing nasty river water for 100 years?

(We live at the mouth of the Mississippi River, and get our drinking water from there. What comes out of the tap is... clean.)

San Diego to Boston is (crow flight) 2,850 miles.

Brest, France to Moscow, Russia is 1,000 miles shorter (1,830 miles).

Lisbon, Portugal to Moscow is "only" 400 miles shorter than SD to Boston. You'd have to travel to Tatarstan to finally find a large city farther away than Boston.

So, effectively, the US is larger than Europe.
