Most of them have had their memory deallocated or whatever. Even given that, my firefox.exe sessions are over 2 GB.

The men published a research paper and a website on Monday with detailed information about their new attacks, which they have dubbed the Lucky Thirteen.
Good to know that we're dealing with men here.
The first thing that came to my mind is a two-part device that triggers based on a specified proximity and is controlled from a remote (ie.: the device would be placed inside the bag and trigger a loud alarm if it strays outside of range)
Just what we need: another source of loud technologically-generated noises in society, as inevitably assholes would forget the proximity connection and accidentally set them off left and right. On top of it, the OP considers such a solution for the SLEEPING area of a train. Christ, the selfishness.
Thanks for your continued zeal about all things guns 'n' tech, Slashdot editors! Because this is truly what the world needs.
Sure beats sitting in front of the computer.
Yeah, timothy! Making and showing off and brandishing deadly weapons - maybe even play-attacking something or shooting off a bunch of rounds if it's a gun - is...so...fucking...cool.
Good job fixating on weaponry of all kinds day after day, publicizing how to make it and giving it that veneer of cool with your editorial choices.
Good job, asshole.
Wow, that slingshot "accommodates the largest legal firecracker in that country"! Can you BELIEVE it??? So AWESOME!!!!
Here we go again with the Slashdot editorial fascination with guns and gun-like things. I bet people in places like Newtown get into your lovable-techno-nerd preoccupation with creating ever more weapons that shoot dangerous projectiles.
You can almost feel the boner that the Slashdot editors have for this crap, the way they're constantly shoving it at the readership. Frighteningly, a considerable portion of the readership likely has the same boner. That's what decades of living in a nation that glorifies war does.
Notice the display in the corner of the video - just like a video game.
Fantastic way to invest time and passion. The world, especially the US, needs MORE GUNS.
In other words, does playing simulated war games like COD on a game console on a daily basis, and enjoying these games, cause gamers to become blinkered to the at times seriously dire real world consequences of using military tactics like drone strikes for real?
Slashdot sloooooowly and belatedly begins to understand a major problem produced by video game culture.
Do Sisko and Janeway really count?
History and the modern world are fraught with examples of people wasting resources without adequate planning for the future. Deferring to market-think doesn't make that problem go away. Overconfidence in the market is what causes or exacerbates a high percentage of our problems.
Even if it WERE true that the market would probably respond to a helium shortage by supplying additional quantities, that doesn't change the fact that one asshole, who wants glory badly enough and who has enough power and resources to make people assist him in his goal, can use much more of a resource than any person has a right to, given the current state of affairs and supply of that resource. As another commenter said, healthcare is RATIONING helium, right now.
The hype and the $$$-making for Red Bull and Baumgartner might be just started. I'm surprised he made it; there was quite a bit of luck involved. There were and are many unknowns, especially wrt physiological reaction of the body. He might have suffered damage that emerges as time goes by.
One aspect of the hype that isn't scrutinized much is the claim that this was some kind of unprotected jump, man against atmosphere, etc. etc. In reality, Baumgartner was encased in a highy-engineered protective enclosure which happened to fit very closely to the outlines of his body. Other protective enclosures, such as cockpits of aircraft, happen to be much larger and more massive. What he did was still very risky (and stupid), but as usual with this kind of thing the hype gets people carried away from reality.
We also need to re-examine the value we as a society place on *risk* and *risk-takers*, as opposed to things like *wisdom*, *moderation*, *shared benefit*, and other such qualities that are so unexciting, unprofitable, and resilient to hyped media coverage. This jump was another example of the techno-frenzy ideology which has captured the planners of society, especially US society, and which is leading us down entirely the wrong path at an extremely critical point in history.
