Um, anywhere? Hydroelectric plants, windmills (even low-tech Dutch-stereotype ones, if necessary), steam-turbine generators fueled with anything flammable (wood, trash, soybean oil, whale oil, dead bodies -- anything!)... oh yeah, or you could even just do solar thermal and skip the PV entirely.

Well excuse me! I merely read the fucking summary and somehow thought just because it said that "the ultimate goal is to replace KDE as the default desktop of PC-BSD" and that "Lumina aims to be lightweight, stable, fast-running, and compliant," that meant the point was to make something better for the public, not merely to "have fun" or "learn" something.

Clearly, your reading comprehension skills are so far beyond mine that you were able to determine the "real" ultimate goal of the project despite the summary explicitly saying something completely different. I'm so goddamn sorry I deigned to participate in the conversation, when my ideas so pale in comparison to your obvious brilliance!

Obama is a legit President, not like Nixon, Ford, Regan, Bush I & II and Clinton...Obama isn't perfect but he's not illuminati.

You've got to be kidding me. Doing exactly the opposite of pretty much everything he promised during his campaign (close Guantanamo, not kowtow to lobbyists, improve environmental regulations, etc.) is hardly "legit!"

Obama stretches decisions bad for the Oligarchary out over time...he doesn't fire Sebelius when all the media heat is on it happens after...the Keystone XL pipeline is another example...

Sebelius fucked up, and her fuck-ups damaged Obama's agenda. Failing to replace her immediately accomplished nothing except giving Republicans an extra talking point and revealing how much Obama sucks as a manager.

The FCC wanted to do B without C, so they claimed "ISPs are not common carriers, so we don't have to do C. ISPs are common carriers, so we're going to do B". That's ridiculous, you can't say they ARE common carriers and NOT common carriers at the same time. Therefore, the FCC can't make up net neutrality laws.

The FCC should just fucking go ahead and do C (i.e., make ISPs common carriers)!

if we can prove that something is true or false, and a religion teaches the opposite, then the religion should be updated. People make mistakes, we're only human, right?

But according to cargo-cult Christians (i.e., fundamentalist "religious-right" types), the Bible is the "literal Word of God" and therefore cannot be wrong (even when it's self-contradictory).

There's a big difference between someone who doubts the big bang because they evidence isn't conclusive and it's just the best hypothesis we have right now and someone who doubts the big bang because an 1700 year old book says a sky man created the earth in 7 days.

Clearly, the survey used the wrong terminology. It should have asked something like "do you disbelieve (or maybe, "reject") these theories?"
