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).
From memory, blocked sites included:
michellemalkin.com - because she says mean things about Iran
apnews.myway.com - because the AP wire service is part of a counterrevolutionary monarchist conspiracy
openvpn.org - because VPN is for terrorists

Our President at the time, Jimmy Carter, was also a micro-manager and a former nuclear engineer:
U.S. Navy reactor operators, the sort who served under Jimmy Carter in the 1950s,
Is not and never was a nuclear engineer, much less did he command a nuclear sub. He served as an enlisted man on several diesel-electric subs and started, but did not complete, a Naval class in nuclear engineering. He resigned from the Navy (as a lieutenant) before any nuclear subs were commissioned.

Bacteria react to injury, they remember the past, and they even predict the future. If you buy into the theory that causing pain is immoral then every cow is a walking Auschwitz. (not even to mention the problem of brushing teeth)
