Comment good fucking lord (Score 1) 473

You god-damned neo-cons/tea baggers scream that US gov is the source of all evil when it is obvious that others are doing this. This gets so fucking old that not a one of you have even as much brains as a squirrel. EPA is not the issue here. It is the fact that you neo-cons/tea* underfunded them and so they are not able to test everything.
BUT, you are right that this SHOULD be investigated but not by you neo-cons/tea* (or the dems). This really should be polical neutral groups, or even 3rd parties that do this. You bunch of fuck-heads continue to destroy America while blaming the very gov that you idiots created.

Comment wow, What liars (Score 1) 473

They are claiming that Software engineers choose to do this hack, when the engine engineers, along with management all the way up to the CEO, were the ones on the line with this. Really? Does anybody fucking believe that? NOT A CHANCE IN HELL WAS THIS THE CASE.

Seriously, this had to go all the way to the CEO for them to try and blame it on the ppl that had the least to gain and the most to lose.

look at when new safety tests are designed. The one thing that you see is that nearly all of the companies that are the 'safest', do darn near the bottom of the new test. Basically, companies like Audi, VW, MB, etc are designing to tests, or to cheat them, while disregarding real life conditions.

Comment Everybody, but Americans. (Score 1) 360

This should produce some interesting points for AGW. Basically, nations and businesses can NOT be trusted on how much pollution, esp. CO2, that they emit. It is time to move to global monitoring via satellite (OCO2 and OCO3), along with a tax on ALL GOODS based on where the worst parts come from. This will be the ONLY way to drop global CO2.

If they're unsafe it's too late now. Putting your passwords in a cloud service is like putting nude pictures online. Nobody may want to look at them, but they're out there forever, and somebody has them backed up somewhere.

It depends on whether they ever had the keys to unlock them or they were all locally encrypted (barring the whole "they lied and stored your password anyway" tin foil hat argument).

Comment The moon is not something we can stand on... (Score 1) 50

It's a luminary, like the sun, and is the same size and distance away from us here standing on this flat Earth. Moon light makes things colder; sun light makes things warmer -- thus, it is not reflected sunlight, as were that the case it would still warm things, just to a lesser degree -- it wouldn't cool them.

Comment Re: Jews In Space! (Score 0) 50

Death camps are a myth. Russian soldiers added the gas vents after the camps were cleared out. Many Germans died after the war, more than twice the number the Tribe is saying died in their camps. Many Serbs died, you don't see them pushing it in our faces, do you? The numbers for Auschwitz have fallen dramatically ( ) -- from over 4 million, to 1.5 million in 1983. Thus that touted "6 million total" figure should be reduced by 2.5 million, meaning a maximum of 3.5 million died. But that doesn't suit their agenda, which is to loudly proclaim that their prophesied "6 million will die" has already happened, so it doesn't happen in our future.

Sneaky fuckers, right? They've been saying "6 million died" long before WW2 as well.

Learn the truth. Don't spread their lies.

being a net exporter is not the same thing as not importing oil. I have no doubt that Tesla will force other car makers to move to electric which will drop demand for gas rather quickly. Interestingly, our rail system is in the process of moving off diesel and over to nat gas. And as long as O does not allow nat gas exports, then it should remain cheap here and trains, and ideally, semis will move that way.

And actually, I was just teasing on the 1 worker thing. Sorry if you misunderstood that .
