I've watched way too many zombie movies to feel comfortable with the drug's name.
Heck, never mind the name, this is the beginning of the plot of more zombie movies than I can count.
You two aren't just whistlin' Dixie; that's the major plot of the Charlton Heston classic The Omega Man.
Then again, that one chick-zombie was pretty cool, so if that's a possible side-effect, then I say it's win-win.
The tactic was first proposed as part of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in 2011, but three years after the law failed in Congress, the MPAA has been looking for legal justification for the practice in existing law and working with ISPs like Comcast to examine how a system might work technically. If a takedown notice could blacklist a site from every available DNS provider, the URL would be effectively erased from the internet. No one's ever tried to issue a takedown notice like that, but this latest memo suggests the MPAA is looking into it as a potentially powerful new tool in the fight against piracy.
Thanks for the light.
So once pressurized, it is contained in some vessel which is then cooled? Too cool! Literally!
So how do they squeeze it down? In some sense it is a mechanical operation, right?
How can a material be pressed at 150 gigapascals and still be cool?
I thought that if you put a billion atmospheres of pressure on material, said material would be heated by the pressure. Is that not so?

Thank you for that, fullmetal! I always appreciate it when someone lights the way in front of me!
In restrospect, I didn't really think about my question because of course, engineers and scientists take multiple precautions. Those precautions may not always be 100% effective but they ARE there.
It may have been sterilized but a seagull can just fly over and poop on it.
As the rocket speeds out the atmosphere, it must initially flatten lots of bugs against itself.
How did anyone think we could send anything into space that wasn't crawling with earth-bacteria and other stuff, exactly?

Can it read e-mail?
You're right, when you download a file, the original copy disappears in a cloud of smoke. You've deprived its owner of his copy. That is theft.
Or worse, if you would never have bought a copy in the first place, then you've stolen the profit the media company would never have made. That is theft.
Of course if you mention viewing the movie to someone such that they would not have considered it otherwise and THEY buy a copy, then you've deprived the media company of a sale. That is theft.
It's important to pay for all copies so that media companies can keep getting rich and not pay the artists because the media companies hold all the rights and make all the money. That is theft.
If you have one or plan on buying one, what apps or functions do you see yourself getting the most use from? If you're still skeptical, what would it take? (If an app developer sees your requirements here on Slashdot, your wish might come true.)
