I take umbrage with solar and wind power being called renewable. They aren't. When the sun is used up we won't get another one. When the heat from the sun is gone we won't have any more wind.

A few months ago I ran across a study about the polarizing effect of internet forums. As I understood the theory, they thought that we all have these black/white ideas, but they're normally moderated by social interaction. Unfortunately the ease and anonymity of internet communcation allows us to express the exremeties of our beliefs without any social cost.
What next, giving one to Jethro Tull?!
I'd vote for that one!
Can't be all that juice pumped into the ground.
Can be, but you're looking at the wrong process. Overly aggressive wastewater injection is the more likely culprit.
That's it, science has failed once again. I'm going back to christianity.
You should try both. That way you're always covered.
"What if in the future you could buy a car and unlock options later? "
You mean like the XM Radio that's installed in most new cars?
Oh, I don't even remotely expect him to say that to them. I don't imagine that he even wants them to stop. I was just pointing out that he has the power to do so.
It's unfortunate that he's not in the position of representing the American populace.

Nobody ever seems to remember that the NSA falls under the Executive Branch. Congress doesn't have to do squat. There's this one guy who has the authority to tell the NSA "Don't do that," and they're required to stop.
Clue: He lives in a really big house with a boring paint job.
I was watching the launch on TV when it happened. I still can't watch the videos or look at the pictures.
In 1943 it probably cost a few hundred thousand $ to build - if that.
Today's "updates" will cost $4.3 billion, be obsolete 6 months before completed, take 6 years, be the subject of multiple disciplinary hearings, congressional investigations and DOJ corruption probes, won't work, then ultimately will be outsourced to China for completion prior to being abandoned for a new technology.
Of course it will work. It was built for WWII. They made that stuff so you couldn't screw it up. There were still four Iowa class battlships active in the '90s.
I'm pretty sure a lot of people in the US know what a kilo feels like. Just ask the folks in Colorado and Washington.
Well, OK, maybe not the whole kilo - unless they toss one in the campfire.
We in the USA are really sorry that the rest of the world doesn't have the mental capacity to deal with multiple measurement systems. Now run along and play with your cubic centimeter.
Does anybody else think it's funny that we're reading an article about an anachronistic clock?
So, is it your assumption that size is directly responsible for the malware? Why can't a large hosting company also institute the best protection mechanisms to reduce their malware content? GoDaddy I can see not giving a crap, but Amazon should do some proper management to reduce this problem.
Do you realize how much business they would lose if they did that?
You can't just kick off all your best customers.
