It turns out that pretty much all biological processes are disgusting. Some people can't cope with this and become reclusive germophobic stuck-ups. Other people accept reality and find ways to be happy about it.

Incidentally, yours was not the first post, and the fact that you gave your post a title suggesting that you cared about getting first post tells a great deal about your maturity level. Not that it matters, you will get modded troll and your post will be read by hardly anybody.

Hi. Not sure wtf you're talking about, but I, for one, find beastiality repugnant. Apparently, you don't.

The post title was referring to the first cross-species orgy. But if your display of your ability to comprehend is any indication, you never had a chance of seeing that.

I thank the mods for correctly determining that I was trolling neanderthals and those that practice beastiality... and I'd do it again, proudly. Mod on, bitches.

indicating that he lived not long after the two groups swapped genetic material. The man likely lived 7000 to 13,000 years after modern humans and Neanderthals mated, dating the mixing to 52,000 to 58,000 years ago, the researchers conclude

Sounds as though it was the first cross-species orgy, which no doubt started that disgusting trend which lives on even today.

Maybe they have stumbled upon some new type of star or object. There are probably all kinds of large things that we have never run across before.

I think that's unlikely. We've seen all there is to see, we know all there is to know.

...about 100 times brighter than the calculated limits of its luminosity..."

Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.

- Arthur Conan Doyle

Thus, quote obviously, the object is actually 100 pulsars in close proximity and with their pulses synced, appearing as one bright pulsar. No need to thank me, astronmers.

Banning firearms will not finish the problem, but will very likely decrease it.

It's a start, but I think an unncessary over-reaction... the US simply needs better gun-control laws, like other 1st world nations with better gun-control laws. Also, the NRA needs to be held accoutable for the unfortunate things their members sometimes do... that will shut them up with a quickness.

Who commits 90% of the gun crime in the U.S.? Certainly not law abiding citizens.

Actually, gun owners commit 100% of the gun crime everywhere.

MILLIONS of crimes are prevented every year by law abiding citizens either brandishing (99% of the time) or using (1% of the time) their legally held guns.

Millions? Ok, cite 50 from 2014. You can't? Stop making shit up. That is total bullshit. Regular gun owners almost NEVER stop crime. They are mostly afraid to, which is why they feel more secure with a gun. They do often make boo boos with their weapons. And you know what? Unarmed people stop crime all the time, far far more often than gun owners. Crime fighting gun owners, take a break! We (the unarmed) got this.

The reason Japan has low to no gun crime isn't the law, it's the values instilled in all there. ...

I would not disagree that Japanese values are admirable. Bbbut.... so its their values??!!!... and not the fact that there's hardly any guns there? Oh, so that explains that there's hardly any gun crime there? Ok. Well, what about Great Britain, France, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark and Australia? Is their low-gun crime, to make an understatement, due to their values? Are Americans just gun-homicidal assholes?

I think you're probably someone like likes guns so much (and it is your right, and guns are neato!!) that you are pretty much willing to believe and preach anything as long as no one says "guns are bad."

Guns are bad. They're not necessary. (Hunting is unncessary, too! But it is fun to kill things.) If you own a gun for protection, the fact IS that it is far more likely that you will injure, maim or kill yourself or someone you love than you will ever get a chance to defend yourself from crime... let alone successfully. Even Secret Service agents, who know their weapon far better than any "Regular," or 2nd Amendment citizen, accidentally shoot each other.

But they're so neat... guns... that rational men are willing to believe anything in order to justify having one. Well... please be careful. I know they're neat as Hell, but they are not toys.

Ives is probably the worlds foremost product designer

Ah. Ah ha. Ha. Ha Ha Ha. Oh, that is priceless. Just priceless. Ive's work is at best, a mixed bag, and he surely isn't the world's foremost designer. I can think of any number of designers that make him look like the pretentious hack he is. Starting with any number of supercar designers, wandering off into audio equipment and musical instrument design, heck, there are even refrigerators that are designed better than Ive's work product. Also, Scott Forstall's ideas were far better in terms of design than Ives. He just wasn't minimalist -- but minimalist is not a synonym for "good", and in fact, very seldom is that the case.

Applelapse Now!

Well, Ive was one of the most outstanding executive officers this company's ever produced. He was brave, outstanding in every way. And he was a good man, too, humanitarian man, a man of wit and humor. He joined the Software Engineering Group. After that, his... uh... ideas... methods... became... unsound... unsound.

Now he's crossed into California with this mountaineered army of his that... worship... the man... like a god, and follow every order, however ridiculous...

...very obviously, he has gone insane.

Your mission is to proceed down the San Francisco Bay in a Blue Navy petrol boat, pick up Sir Ive's path at Cupertino, follow it, learn what you can along the way. When you find the officer, infiltrate his team by (ahem-hem) whatever means available, and terminate the executive's position.


...terminate... with extreme prejudice.

If nothing else, at least it's out in the open where they have to defend it.

Right. And I am certain at every court challenge to this notion, that "the Bill of Rights is only for US citizens on US soil," their idiotic interpretation will fail miserably and immediately. No where in the Constitution does it limit its powers and the extension of the enumerated rights to only US citizens only on US soil. This limitation was never intended by the Founders, thus it is not there, but a thin pathetic fantasy of whomever thought up this canine feces of a legal strategy. The Bill of Rights extends to protect every person, US citizen or not, anywhere and everywhere in the Universe from tyrannical government, according to the letter of the text. It is simply not possible to reasonably and legitimately prove otherwise.

You have a hint of the truth there. Once again, as I have said in previous comments on earlier stories about HMD and virtual reality, this body illusion has absolutely nothing to do with the "power" of virtual reality, and still, so far, no tech company has any idea what they have (and I still hope to scoop them all with my subsequent patents, invalidating theirs, and make a fortune suing them... because their patents incorrectly describe the invention, or how it works). Don't bother replying, I'm not going to give it away.

I find the idea that Sherpas have a gene that helps them breathe at high altitude a little hard to accept. How long have the sherpas been up there carrying shit for rich European thrill seekers? Sure, they adapted to their environment... but couldn't this be a non-genetic adaptation? Have you seen how fast high-school and college swimmers can swim? Where does their fast swimming gene come from? Fish? Did high school and college students interbreed with fish a whole bunch of semesters ago?
