The Russians are building floating nuclear power stations to be deployed to the Arctic.
Analogy fail: Your mother didn't own any safety deposit box. She owned the contents and rented the box from the bank it is stored in.
It's not too hard to imagine someone leaving, say, a piece of antique furniture but not the diaries stored inside.
The article doesn't mention if/how the wrong answers correlate to age or poverty. If you're old enough that computers are still a strange new thing, or poor enough to never have had access to one outside the public library, it's not surprising you wouldn't know those terms.
Maybe I'm giving them too much credit, but I assume the FBI would be aware of Comcast's wifi sharing initiative. Just like running a coffee shop with free wifi that a customer did something unsavory with; the feds wouldn't come kicking in the door assuming that the shop owner was the culprit. They might knock and ask to see logs, but in this case they would get those from the ISP.
I don’t think Godwin applies to Farenheit 451.
Right! Slashdot's target audience are people who hear "back door" and think physical door.

“Formal race” probably means one governed by a recognized sanctioning body.
Where did anyone call this a "zero emissions" car? The summary mentions completing one lap with no emissions, but nobody is saying it's a zero-emissions vehicle.
That's called "well-managed expectations."
You could acquire a concrete manufacturer and bake explosives into construction long ahead of time, like when a new football stadium is being built five years ago
10krpm SCSI drives aren’t “consumer-grade” though. And last I checked (which was admittedly quite a while ago,) Seagate still has a five-year warranty on even their low-end HDs, while most other manufacturers top out at three years for consumer drives.
Even if colleges don’t give class credits for them, they still look good on an application.
Being forced to hear only one end of a conversation is vastly more irritating than hearing both parties.
A baby’s crying is involuntary, it can’t decide not to. An adult’s phone usage is the opposite.
What really marks it as a thoughtless childish outburst is this: If it was supposed to be payback for the Fort Lee mayor’s non-endorsement, how does punishing everyone trying to get over the bridge specifically punish him? Fort Lee residents represent a miniscule fraction of bridge traffic, and drivers aren’t going to blame the nearest mayor when they see some Port Authority snafu.
