[...] to Congress and see if it [...]to make them think.
What? Make them think? Make Congress think? That's an Oxymoron, having both terms in the same sentence.
Besides they will never think, because if they did, then all that money paid to them to buy political/financial favors might be all for naught. The rich will never let that happen.
Dark Matter Core Defies Explanation
Of course I admit I am a little biased in my analysis above, because my own theory actually predicts this lensing effect and doesn't even require any new fictitious or magic particles to do it. When the Abell 520 survey came out it merely confirmed my hypothesis of how the physics actually works at the quantum level.
I do have to wonder, with all the concrete footings, if the floor is actually wood and bowed up at the edges like a true ship hull would have been, so we can watch all the people slide towards the keel where the eliminated swill from the animals would have collected by the ton before it gets carted up several stories to be thrown out the one tiny window. Of course they didn't have steel wheel barrows back then, so they woud have to put the animals to work. You couldn't even hire someone for that these days. No wonder they want to raise the minimum wage!
In theory the ISP's might look to see where your data is headed and make adjustments based on that, but that of course would be deceitful. No, they wouldn't do that would they?
What is the point to "interactive music" anyway. I like to listen to music, not hold a conversation with it. Why would I even want this? Its just a solution looking for a problem.
Podcasts: pick up a used ipod and subscribe to the astronomy related podcasts.
Kindle: get a used kindle that has the bubble-type keyboard, and let it read books and papers to you. The keyboard lets you start/stop the reader without looking, for in the car use. Download Calibre application and convert online/document resources and copy them to the kindle. You are not stuck with just Amazon eBooks, but many of them are good.
When online use an RSS reader and connecty to the publications feeds: e.g. http://iopscience.iop.org/ http://arxiv.org/ http://www.physicsforums.com/ http://prl.aps.org/ http://phys.org/ http://physics.stackexchange.c... http://prd.aps.org/ and many blogs!
They would first need to prove illegal activity is happening, and that would be difficult, but then there are known exploits for some Tor applications that can be used to leak data which can give away this kind of evedence of your activity. The question is, would they go through the trouble to inject these exploits into your system so that they can find out what you are doing? Like unsecured DNS, or injections of web bugs into your open http traffic. That sounds illegal to me, and a clear invasion of privacy. Privacy is exasctly the reason for using Tor in the first place, so don't expect those kinds of users to sit back and say nothing when terminated.
