Comment 3mm is the key (Score 4, Insightful) 126

In fairness, you should mention that the sea level rises about 3mm a year, and has done so since at least 1650, which I think is when they first started measuring it. It hasn't been a major problem for the last 350 years, so I don't expect it will be a problem for the next 350. After all, we are much more advanced now.

"Organi[z]e a "draw Jesus sodomizing Mary" contest in Texas and you'll get crazy Christian jihadists doing the same thing." \n\n This has already been proven untrue. Remember when they put Jesus in a jar of piss and displayed it around the nation, calling it art? People were outraged, but no Christian harmed anyone because of it.

It's a pain in the butt, but /. clearly can't be trusted with javascript. So it's disabled now on 263 computers when they attempt to view slashdot. In fairness, only one or two of those computers visit here, probably. It's a work environment, so most of them are checking out Gawker and Drudge :(.
