Ahh, yeah that makes much more sense and I agree.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!

Why would people agree to let their spouse leave knowing that they will never see or speak to them again??
I just dug out my marriage license, don't see anything in there about me having to ask my spouse permission to leave.
Maybe it was just a poor choice of words or maybe you really do think one party gets a veto over the other party going off somewhere.
That's nice and all but when can we get the NCIS version. I've been watching their weekly documentary and they have some damned impressive software.
Hey, leave Thor out of this. Sure those other guys can take a leap but don't talk ill about Thor.
The Dept of Education budget was 67.3B last year, your 68.4B number is for 2 years. The projected cost is 34.2B/year so it's roughly half the Department of Education budget. Whether that's a good or bad thing is a different debate.
I blame all the pinko commie anti-capitalists.
There's a huge difference between rationally discussing the solution to a problem and ignoring the existence of a problem. Both result in a solution, one by abdicating the ability to affect the outcome.
The sooner the world starts having serious political and social debates about what (if anything) should be done we'll be better off. Until then we're stuck with a lot of finger in ear lalalalalalalalalalalalalala'ing the issues.
I *believe* you have that backwards. The evidence supports MMGW, you *believe* that to be a myth. If you have any facts by all means share them. I suspect what you have are some number of people whose specialty is not climatology saying they don't believe in MMGW.
Ha, haha, hahahaha.
Well this atheist wishes you both irrelevance, though if he's going to be relevant I'd prefer his brand.
On a side note why is it whenever I read posts like the above, when I click on them, I can be absolutely certain the poster is none other than Mr AC.
Too bad most folks aren't aware of that. If people understood where the word came from they might have a better understanding of what it means to be privileged.
Good lord how is this modded insightful, it's the exact opposite of insightful unless what the modders are saying is the learned something about the OP's character.
First off it's another one of these "I know nothing about the topic but am going to belittle the science" posts. Secondly low pressure has nothing to do with it. As the article stated there was no environmental changes (pressure, wind etc) at the nesting site the day before. The theory is the birds are sensitive to the very low frequency rumblings of tornadoes hundreds of miles away the day before the storm front arrived. Granted that's just a theory but nowhere does pressure gradient enter into it.
Someone could learn something here, I'm pretty sure.
They could, but they won't. The slashdot lawn is now thoroughly trampled.
Why the hell is this flagged as interesting. It's not even vaguely interesting from a logical argument sense. As others have pointed out there's a fundamental difference in *who* you choose to do business with based on race, color, religion etc and *what* you choose to do business with (e.g. gun part manufacturers, clown costume manufacturers, taco distributors).
The point of teleporting a virus is to see if you can teleport a (nearly) living organism and have it remain viable. It's the obvious next step after molecule and before bacteria or Donald Trump.
Just because half the world is freaking out over ebola doesn't mean viruses wouldn't be an obvious thing to try or that we should avoid mentioning them.
Permanence has a pretty specific meaning here. It says nothing of duration, only that it's the last.
Getting a permanent heart that lasts 76 days is not nearly as enticing as getting a temporary heart that lasts 2 years.
