Everybody! Ignore this guy with stupid facts and continue with killer mutant dolphin jokes!
Show me the numbers. Not someone's opinion about what they mean, but a detailed description of each experiment and the raw data that resulted.
They already have: it's called the scientific literature. It's not their fault you haven't taken the time and effort to read and understand it.
You obviously haven't followed Stephen McIntyre's never ending battles with Michael Mann and other luminaries in climate science community. Basically what we have is somewhat vague scientific literature and concentrated effort to hide the data and the details of methods.
What really bugs me about US Military and US population in general is the speak. They constantly speak that their military is "defending their freedom". That is utter bullshit as US military is waging offensive wars.
As long as it was between consenting adults, an affair is between him, the 'afairee' and his family.
I disagree. The husband of Paula Broadwell (the 'afairee' as you put it) has the right to know that his wife is seriously two-timing him. If this getting this public is the only way of getting the word to him then so be it.
As long as it doesn't effect one's job performance its really nobody's business.
The director of CIA should not put himself in a position where he can be blackmailed. This is such a basic stuff that I'm willing to guess that CIA has a policy on this.
Wait for the dirty tricks and personal attacks to begin.
The fossil fuel lobby won't take such a show of flagrant anti-rich, anti-1% dissent lying down.
Like the poor fool who dares to step between the pigs and their swill, this fellow is gonna get mauled.
That is just bullshit.
First, there is no great conspiracy of evil "fossil fuel lobby".
Second, fossil fuels are the friend of the poor. It is Al Gore and other obnoxiously rich people who can afford their electricity bill to threefold without any impact to their lifestyle. Make no mistake about it: If the solutions that are on the table for solving the global warming are implemented, it is the poor who will see their level of confort plummeting. They probably won't be able to afford such luxuries as private automobiles. Meanwhile Al Gore will be still living in his air conditioned castles while flying between them with his private jet.
I have 5 level 80+ chars on WoW, but haven't played the game in at least a year, maybe two, and don't plan to go back to it, even for Pandas.
Even for Pandas? So you are saying that Pandas are basically cool but the game sucks otherwise? I seriously thought that adding Pandas was a bad case of jumping the shark. Well, maybe I just need to admit it to my self: I'm totally out of touch with gamers today. Now if you excuse me, I'll go and find rumors about Football Manager 2013 which I will eventually buy but won't find time to play.
No fucking clue. Ask Amazon.
It would be easier to believe that "Japan's Obayashi Corp" are out of their mind if we would have a link to this on their own web site.
I think the end result of meta-moderation is Groupthink. If you punish moderators that might have a bit of an edge, you end up with moderators that are Group thinking. That will show immediately if you browse at +5.
This is a cheap publicity stunt, nothing more.
And that is a bad thing exactly how?
Mathematics is not dancing with the stars or what not.
Says who? If you don't like it, don't watch it. I say that if this draw even a few bright people towards maths and shows them that this is really interesting stuff, it is a good thing. I do not understand why Mathematicians should appear as some sage-like, ascetic monks.

So, what was his Slashdot handle?
Let's find out. Every one who isn't him, reply here: Not me.
Given that a RC plane controlling law is prepared, I am curious to find who idea the RC plane was. FBI's or guy's own. The risk that government generates crime to justify a legislation is a worrying one. This is one more reason why encouraging some to commit a crime, should be a crime even when done by officials.
slightly off-topic. this msnbc blog entry shows some interesting insight in the dynamics of the group:
a Londoner when asked by a television reporter: Is rioting the correct way to express your discontent?
"Yes," said the young man. "You wouldn't be talking to me now if we didn't riot, would you?"
The TV reporter from Britain's ITV had no response.
That is because the reporter was not up to the work he was doing. He should asked the guy what he would like to say now that he has a possibility to speak. He would have produced a gush of drivel of leftist platitudes. They usually do and with the general idea that they are victims of "state" and "society" while they are completely ignorant about their own conduct that adds to their state of being bored.
And bored they are as they do not really have material poverty: They know not hunger, not cold from winter. That is what this is all about: This is about nihilistic, bored, self-centered people doing something. People who do not have a slightest interest in anything sensible. If they would, they would appreciate other people's life's work (like a small business shop) and would refrain from burning it down.
God, I fucking hate when people are being complete dicks and these lefties treat them like some fucking victims.
As an European (from Finland), this is mainly a spectacle of American justice system. Here are some random thoughts based on this news.
In here I constantly hear that "American justice system is corrupted, owned by politicians and big money... Blah blah blah." Now we have an example to observe. It seems to me that the judge is this case is not willing to cave in for anything. The junge is strict, has huge balls, and it appears that the best thing he can do for his career, is to make just decision.
I also bet that he is going to deliver his decision in plain language that is readable even to lay persons. This, and the fact that the case is public, will guarantee that if anything will go wrong, you will hear about it. This is quite a good guarantee that there won't be any funny business.
Nothing is perfect and there is a possibility that the decision is rotten. If this is the case, as I mentioned, the hell break loose. Unfortunately, the public ripping of judgements has one unintended consequence: Europeans will hear about it and somehow conclude that because the system is criticized, it must be worse than their own system that receives no such critique. If any, the opposite is true.
