Can we change the Slashdot-icon for Google into the panopticon?
When you're affronted with terror or high emotion, "pipe breathe" and within half a minute, you're in the zone, able to think and react with calm precision to high-stress situations.

Didn't RTFA, but still wondering: does this mean quantum encryption can be beaten by adding a "weight scale" to the transmission link?
"decimal places" should have been "significant digits".
Turns out the parent post was only accurate to within its first 44 characters.
But why emit energy if you can use it?
This is only one line of thinking.
A completely different approach would be, for example, to hold those who make statements accountable for them.

This proves that the universe will in fact never collapse.
Or does it?
I've been wondering for some time now why TLS (SSH) is not integrated into the OS, to extend the TCP/IP stack on a low level.
