It is clear you don't understand what rights are. Why don't you define rights for us?

(Once you realize you're having trouble clearly defining what rights are and why you have them, because you don't actually understand them, go do some homework and come back when you have something intelligent to say.)

Submission + - German Scientists Claim to Break Speed of Light->

Evil Adrian writes: German physicists claim to have broken the speed of light. Using Einstein's famous equation, this feat would require an infinite amount of energy — so if this claim is true, it would stand to reason that our understanding of physics might be a wee bit inaccurate.

Comment sweatshop? (Score 1, Interesting) 828 828

Don't look at what they make or how long they work. That doesn't matter one bit. If that worker over there working such long hours for so little, and then paying part of that back for lodging, didn't think the job was worth it they would quit. For a bunch of idiotic Americans to force companies to close up shop just so they can feel good about that company is just irresponsible. Believe it or not, folks, conditions suck in a lot of places in this world, and sometimes that job, and that offer of clean housing, is the only thing standing between a life of misery in a rice paddy, or starvation, or sex slavery, or you name it. Before you go poo-pooing a company like Apple or Nike for having "sweatshops" you should really google around for results of actual studies about what happens to people when the "do goody" American idiots get them kicked back out on the street. Not pretty. The only people it helps is the (usually very liberal and comparatively rich) Americans, because it makes them feel good. That's it.

You are in a maze of little twisting passages, all different.
