This is like trying to make people smarter by lowering the test standards.
Lathes: as they can be used to make firearm parts, grinders: as they can be used to make firearm parts, metal: as it is most likely used to make firearm parts, and so on and so on. Lawmakers are morons and know nothing about about reality.
Hope this passes so I don't have to pay for 200 channels of crap just to get the five channels I watch.
This is a good example of why the Government needs to keep out of business. These laws have unintended consequences and when there is a legitimate and immediate need for a change, it can take the Government years to react. Let the economy dictate this action of industry. When it is feasible for this to happen, it will. Wanna talk about CFL bulbs and how they are working for you? Not!
Why not just blame this on Bush too.
The title of this article should say "... Pose Threat to Hungry Children".
What I read so far says that this bill will require WiFi base stations to be installed in federal buildings. Sounds kinda useless. Does the bill to hook them up to a network come next?
The original article is correct in using the word "sex". Gender is the attribute of a word and not a person. Political correctness is killing the English language.
If a person has an issue with his neighbors, it isn't a problem with the neighbors, it is that person. Easy fix....... get up a move away. I know a cave in the mountains that would fit this guy nicely.
Just give me one Government program that has worked as planned. If you can do this do, then I might buy off on it.
cremeglace writes with this excerpt from ScienceNOW: "You've heard the controversy. Particle physicists predict the world's new highest-energy atom smasher, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) near Geneva, Switzerland, might create tiny black holes, which they say would be a fantastic discovery. Some doomsayers fear those black holes might gobble up the Earth — physicists say that's impossible — and have petitioned the United Nations to stop the $5.5 billion LHC. Curiously, though, nobody had ever shown that the prevailing theory of gravity, Einstein's theory of general relativity, actually predicts that a black hole can be made this way. Now a computer model shows conclusively for the first time that a particle collision really can make a black hole." That said, they estimate the required energy for creating a black hole this way to be roughly "a quintillion times higher than the LHC's maximum"; though if one of the theories requiring compact extra dimensions is true, the energy could be lower.
At CES, Sony's Kaz Hirai confirmed that the company will build out its PlayStation Network for use with other devices, such as televisions, Blu-ray players, and PCs. Quoting: "... the expansion starts next month with the availability of the PSN video store on these other devices, and Hirai explained they are constructing a mechanism to create a single user ID across the entire network (if you have a PSN account, it's good to go on any other applicable Sony device, and if you create one on another device, it'll work on PSN). And finally, Hirai also announced the formation of a new Sony division — called Sony Network Entertainment, Inc. — to drive this expansion of the PSN service into a Sony-wide network."
And I can find a study that says the world will be colder in a century. It all depends on the agenda I want to push.
Just give me one Government program that works, isn't in a shambles, isn't broke, or isn't full of corruption, and I will go for this. I am sick of the Government mentality that we are too stupid to think for ourselves. Several are, but not me. Please let me choose.
Oh my God! My favorite web site just went down. Goodbye cruel world.
