I was looking for a more intellectual discussion on the topic I presented from fellow slashdotters. It seems I lose this round...
I'm a backer. I'm a backer because LeVar made my childhood awesome and I'd like to pay it forward. I also trust LeVar more than I trust where my current tax dollars are going. However, I'd like to see more details concerning the grit of how he's going to do what he's trying do to. Where is all of this money going? Is the majority paying for licensing of books? Is a third going to software development? Is $750,000 going to researching best methods of teaching kids?
http://xkcd.com/1204/ "Google defends the swiveling roof-mounted scanning electron microscopes on its Street View cars, saying they 'don't reveal anything that couldn't be seen by any pedestrian scanning your house with an electron microscope.'"
Not only is it painless, but it happens on accident and the person can be completely unaware that they need to do something about it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I... tl;dr version: "Accidental nitrogen asphyxiation causes about eight deaths per year in the United States... After a number of accidents in which humans suffocated in nitrogen without any warning, the suggestion was made in 1995 that hypoxic atmospheres be used for the humane killing of humans."
Nitrogen hypoxia. Cheap. 100% effective. Readily available. Doesn't torture the inmate. Why don't we use it? Apparently it's not satisfying our need for justice to equal revenge.
Simply place this weighted cube on the button and open the door to your expanded bathroom! Your house will record your progress... for science. Mind the gap.
The title reads like it's from the Onion News
"Our taxis have always been on the cutting edge of technological innovation, from GPS systems to credit card readers." The cutting edge is what that used to be... If you were to be always on the cutting edge you'd have at least one example from the last decade perhaps?
I remember reading Pop Sci back in the day and it said we'd have a man on Mars by now... 2005 to be exact. That's when I lost all hope to become the first man on Mars because I'd have just graduated high school and wouldn't have nearly enough tome for training...
I got some on my hands but it's immune to soap... -GoldMember-
Thank you. I have comcast (before and after moving) and this explains a lot. I'm constantly dropping skype calls (while enduring terrible quality) while getting a 30mbps 5ms speed test at the same time. I'm paying 45USD for 6mbps in Michigan. I get 30mbps somehow and it acts like 256kbps on anything that isn't Facebook. Honestly... this should be it's own
/. topic. If I don't get what I pay for... how could I even begin to prove it and help change their shaping of my internet?
We were issued laptops with fingerprint biometrics in a science class a couple years ago. I swiped my finger on my friends laptop and it logged into his account for me. Hopefully, despite this new found security hole, they have come a long way since then. I haven't seen these used anywhere. Does anyone find fingerprint biometrics to be useful? Secure? Maybe it's really just to keep the honest people honest.
Warner Brothers should have backed them instead of stopped them. I'm sure both parties could have come out on top there. Publicity for the Hobbit movie (say an exclusive area from the new movie in the mod). I could imagine the dollars gained from hype would make up for anything lost. Although in the real world even the legalities on the WB side would be insanely complicated to allow something like that to continue.
Now that you mention it... she was approached and told that her shorts were too short... then the public safety dudes lost interest and just kinda wandered away. Boy... I should trust their Iranian state controlled media over an American friend with personal pics and videos. I was getting at the idea that the government doesn't always represent the people and the people shouldn't be represented by the few crazies that stand out. I am also aware of all of those things you mentioned. I'd never claim Iran is a better place to live because those things do happen and the area has many issues I wouldn't want to deal with.
Obviously, but point being that the WoW group is more likely within the range of computer savvy individuals.
