Was this the guy who was then billed by the hospital for all of these tests?
The next time you want to slam someone for "acting like you know what you're talking about", don't respond with a bunch of links to Wikipedia. Links, I might add, that are only marginally-relevant to the topic at hand. That shit wouldn't fly in college, so why do you think it's going to hold weight in a professional environment?
Slashdot, a 'professional environment'? As if we needed more proof that you're a fucking lunatic...
I'd like bid 5$ to buy the next 1,000,000 page views served to me. That ought to buy me an ad free internet for quite a while.
You clearly don't view as much porn as I do.
You really gotta be careful with that attitude. The photos seem worthless at the time you take them, and most of them remain worthless forever. Most of them. Then you see that old picture of when your now-grown-up dog used to be a cute little puppy, and awww!!!
A two-disk RAID1, or a RAID5, theoretically ought to be able to detect when there's corruption, but shouldn't be able to correct it. If you've got two different data values, you don't know which one is right.
But it occurs to me: RAID6 (or three-or-more disk RAID1) really ought to be able to correct. Imagine a three-disk RAID1: if two disks say a byte is 03 and one disk says 02, then 03 is probably right. RAID6, similarly, has enough information to be able to do the kinds of repairs that you could do with par2.
It'd be cool to find out this is already in the kernel's md device. Probably not so yet, though. ?
Noone would appreciate it if you don't tell other people what he does or doesn't like.
You have confused 'run and hide' with 'don't give a shit'.
Butthurt much? Go see a shrink and tell him about your animal killing fetish.
Facebook isn't on the list at least, that would be just too ironic.
I know, right?. I'm surprised Google isn't on that list. You'd think they would have something to say about all this.
If they're all in, how about Yahoo and Twitter as well?
You are low. You need to also include Homeland Security, parts of the FBI that do surveillance and para-military operations [i.e. HRT], as well, in my opinion, the VA. This number is discussed often. For example here. Additionally, it does not include any "black" off budget operations, including a big part of the NSA and CIA budgets, perhaps $50B. You simply can't look at only the defense industry.
The fact that it is declining in terms of GDP percentage doesn't mean that defense is shrinking, it means it's not growing as fast the overall budget or the economy. Which is to say, it's still growing in real dollars in most years.
Thanks for correct on Medical GDP. I apparently have not updated that number in my head since the last 1990's. Healthcare is another huge topic.
The bottom line is that it is ridiculous to think that the US would go to war based on the advocacy of any single company, or even the defense industry.
And this is because it's not the single biggest sector in the US economy? It is a huge boondoggle, with millions flowing through the government to private industries. And it's highly political. The defense industry has outsized influence.

You seem upset. Sheep got a headache?
The problem is that you were a small part of an evil system. You didn't create it, you didn't make it, and you weren't responsible for it.
I mean it's not an unfair criticism. They are doing the job that the Administration asked of them.
The problem is that not enough people resigned. That is how you show the world you are unhappy. From the top to bottom, when Pres. Obama or anyone else asked them to do something that was illegal, or lied about it during routine oversight, there should have been waves of resignations. Waves.
When the order goes out to do something illegal, or without appropriate authority, then it should be met with cold silence and the sound of thousands of keyboards typing out letters of resignations.
c.f. - yes, but not all of those operations would be illegal. There are all sorts of intelligence gathering operations that are perfectly legal that states conduct against each other all the time.
