The columbian hooker story was nothing more than a huge distraction story to divert attention from a (not very US-ftiendly) south american summit that was happening at the time. Seriously, the DEA cooperates with criminals to murder imnocent people in these countries, but the media only flips its lid when hired goons are fucking hookers? Give me a break

"Hey guys, I know how we can avoid bad earthquakes--let's emulate the actions of a couple states that didn't even have have earthquakes before humans mucked with it!" I seriously hope you're joking. If not, LOL fracking trolls proposing we manually "relieve pressure" in a system we don't completely understand.

Shame on anyone who upvoted this for anything other than "funny".

Oh really? Then please explain to me why GHCQ specifically targeted slashdot's users with a man in the middle attack / malware?

If you think there are no paid trolls here, you must not spend any time on environment or Snowden threads. be sure to tell that to cold fjord or SartenX or Jeremiah Cornelius, i'm sure they'll be thrilled that someoene is slow enough to think that they're legit.
