All this talk about the super-volcano that doesn't have an obvious peak reminds me of a zit I had on my back once... it was SO BIG--the sloped edges were almost flat that you couldn't tell that it was a zit. But when it finally burst, it was like a half cup of puss and mucous.

I bet that felt awesome!

I don't like the idea of DDOS being legitimized in any way, so I'm not going to address that aspect.

Why piss in the figurative lemonade by using an empty file for the mislabeled torrent?

Remember me during the old Limewire/Napster days, anyone?

+ - Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting-> 3

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes: A grand jury in Missouri has decided there is no probable cause to charge police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown. "A grand jury of nine whites and three blacks had been meeting weekly since Aug. 20 to consider evidence. At least nine votes would have been required to indict Wilson. The Justice Department is conducting an investigation into possible civil rights violations that could result in federal charges." Government officials and Brown's family are urging calm in Ferguson after the contentious protests that followed Brown's death.

What we're doing is taking carbon that was once living matter that was folded into the earth and restoring it to its rightful place in the above ground environment.
It's not man's fault. It's to man's credit that we are doing this.
We are restoring Carbon to its rightful place. It is our duty to continue doing so and adapt to the changes that happen afterwards.

No more Mr. Nice Gaius.
