Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
The relevant law is here. In most cases they have 70 days to bring you to trial after the information is filed/indictment is handed down. When it takes longer than that it's usually because the defendant is the one requesting the delay.
are you against music because people can copyright songs?
that's exactly as stupid as what you just wrote
there is science
then there are corporations
you do understand those are different topics, right?
because the ignorance you just wrote suggests otherwise
degrees = 0.06
radians = 0.06 * pi / 180 = 0.001047
meters = 66.14 * TAN( 0.00104720 ) = 0.06926
cm = 0.06926 * 100 = 6.926
in = 6.926 / 2.54 = 2.727
well, yes, great insight and warning is originally a fringe observation
by the most intelligent, educated, and observant amongst us
not from the pathetic science illiterate and their common low iq irrational fears
viruses infect your cells, pick up stray genes, propagate, and spread that gene to other creatures
simple bacteria frequently exchange genes
you have this notion that transfer of genes between species is some weird thing humans just invented
when the truth is gene transfer amongst species is normal and common
it has been going on since day one of life existing
again, you have this bizarre irrational fear that has no meaning except to illiterate people
then we need to label every single thing we eat as genetically modified
you think our corn or carrots are natural?
they are freak artificial mutations that would never survive in the natural world
because we do in the lab intelligently what we have been doing informally for thousands of years is threatening to you is simply a sign of your ignorance and science illiteracy. you have nothing but uneducated, irrational fear
"I just don't want to eat a food that manufactures its own pesticide"
then you don't want to eat any plant that has ever grown
plants have been in an evolutionary arms race with the creatures that eat them for billions of years, producing a plethora of toxic compounds to kill and maim that which eats them
and the evolution of animal's livers have been doing their best to keep up
in fact many flavor compounds and drugs from plants were originally evoled to kill us, or are meant to kill another species
your irrational fear is nothing but illiteracy and ignorance
perhaps you're right. a shame
paranoid conspiracy theory minded morons have stamina, that's for sure
not sure if you're a troll with that language
but there is no such thing as a balanced point of view when considering the ignorant illiterate beliefs of crackpots in equal balance with mainstream well established science
we know for example the earth is round. we don't need to "fairly" consider that the earth might be flat, just because some crackpot moron thinks so. we can safely exclude the low iq douchebags on the fringe. that's not being unbalanced or having a closed mind or refusing to consider alternate theories
that's just saying fact and reality trump delusion and insanity
it's not "heresy" to doubt vaccines. it's prideful ignorance of well-established fact
well arctic ice is shrinking, and new england weather is getting more violent, just as climate change predicts
additionally, we have been genetically engineering crops for thousands of years. the corn and carrots you eat are freakish artificial monstrosity's that would never survive in the wild
heck look at what we did to the wolf: all those weird mutant dog shapes, sizes, and coats
do you stand agains tthat?
or do you just stand against genetic engineering as we currently practice because you have an ignorant fear of what you don't understand?
i have no problem with opposing monsanto, the corporation with dubious goals that should be opposed
i have a very huge problem with opposing science like genetic engineering, or confusing a corporation with science, because you are a science illiterate
this is what you represent:
there is no such thing as considering the fringe ignorant deranged beliefs of fringe crackpots in equal balance with mainstream science with huge consensus
for anyone that that appeals to, is just revealing how uneducated and dumb they are
