I see absolutely nothing on TV (or in the movies) that makes upgrading a sane option. TV and most junk out of Hollywood sucks glistening red dog dicks.

Like I told the DirecTV guys when I canceled: it isn't about your service; that was fine. But you are selling a steaming turd, and I don't think a turd is worth even $5 a month, let alone $80. Even if said turd is encrusted with glistening yellow corn.

Asking Slashdot to link to oil-industry funded shills and kooks doesn't help advance knowledge in any way.

But we're supposed to accept the word of government-funded shills? Note that your precious government is using the IRS to squelch opposition opinion. And you think a government scientist (who produces what?) will ever let a report surface that shows "global warming" is BS? Taxes need to go up to keep this guy working.

Besides, these government scientists probably couldn't get a real job in industry. Remember, affirmative action is rampant in the government.

That's correct. Government survives on taxes. Government scientists need to keep money flowing in to preserve their work. "Climate Change" isn't about the climate, it is about TAXES (and lots of them). Climate change cheerleaders are as trustworthy as TV evangelists and bizarre religious cults that swing snakes and speak in tongues.

And his administration is actively trying to prevent taxpaying citizens from being able to do the same. See Louisiana. Or don't they discuss that where you get your "news?" The supposedly pejorative term "racist" has been diluted so much these days that it is meaningless.

I work at a physics lab, and I can assure you that the cold fusion effect is very real, but nobody can explain yet why it works,

Real? Cough, cough, *bullshit*. How long has this pseudoscience crap been going around? 20 years?

This whole thing sounds wacky enough to get a big government loan. Don't want the Chinese to get the jump on us, do we? Think of the children...

Yep. I just installed Chrome on a new Linux system. Immediately got the message "Flash out of date." So I went to Adobe web site, and they said Chrome users needn't worry, Flash is automatically updated. Right. I don't know this for a fact, but it seems to me that Flash is a good example of what you get when you farm out your software development to 3rd worlders. They apparently still haven't gotten 64 bit support right.
