Comment Same gene for asbestos workers or coal miners? (Score 0) 174

I wonder if the same genetic mutation applies to people who are, or were, exposed to asbestos. And coal miners? I wonder if there other genes that affect immunity to other common conditions? For example, what gene makes politicians immune to compassion and common sense?

After scrolling past ads for Chinese testosterone, Chinese intelligence booster pills and a database of sex offenders living in by basement, I finally made it to the "meat" of the advertisements, errrr, story - An ad suggesting that I join Facebook.

I still see a lot of business-related content dependant on Flash. I'm guessing that the companies that use it are aware of the security problems imposed by Flash. They just have to make security a higher priority than profit margins. Besides, if it aint broke, dont fix it. What if the guy that wrote all the Flash and Actionscript got downsized/outsourced and nobody can figure out WTF his code does?

I thought that tattooing was generally confined to Auschwitz, but you've got the general idea. It was a way to keep track of prisoners so that camp officials could monitor and report on process improvement. The process being the extermination of human beings. Just thinking about it makes me feel like vomiting.

... for those who never used or heard of it, was a peer-to-peer messaging and file interchange network where a peer was a BBS accessed by dial-in modem. This was in the days before ubiquitious tubed internet access. For folks that didn't have access to usenet at school it was THE place to be.

Your important files encryption produced on this computer: photos, videos, documents, etc. Here is a complete list of encrypted files, and you can personally verify this.

Encryption was produced using a unique public key RSA-2048 generated for this computer. To decrypt files you need to obtain a private key. The single copy of the private key, which will allow you to decrypt the files, located on a secret server on the Internet; the server will destroy the key after a time specified in this window. After that, nobody and never will be able to restore files.

To obtain the private key for this computer, which will automatically decrypt files, you need to pay 666 Bitcoin like similar amount in another country. Click >nezt> to select the method of payment and the currency. Any attempt to remove or damage this software will lead to the immediate destruction of the private key by server.

Comment No fun on the receiving end (Score 3, Insightful) 64

I had one (prostate biopsy) about 10 yrs ago. The doc that ordered it did so because of a single elevated PSA. No robots, no MRI, just a doctor and nurse with an ultrasound machine and a tube up my butt. They moved the tube guided by the ultrasound image. press a button and it shoots a hollow needle through the colon wall into the prostrate. Basically, core drilling into body parts. Hurts like hell. Retrieve the needle with sample, put new needle into machine, lather, rinse, repeat. Blood in my piss and come for a week. Diagnosis was BPH. I cant see how robots and being confined to an MRI will make it any more effective or painless; just more expensive.

The trouble with a lot of self-made men is that they worship their creator.
