Screw reasoning, this is sick (2 balsts, 1 controlled blast, 2 not activated). Hoping investigators will find those people.

This is also doesn't feel like Jihadists...

It is typical Al Queda tactics to have multiple, coordinated bombs. If there were 4 bombs, it doesn't sound like a lone nutjob did this.

The amount of analysis that they can do on video from toll plazas, bridges and tunnels would be interesting to know. They can probably at least capture every license plate and do some cross checking with various databases.

People don't need planets to live. Or, at least, not to live on. Lagrange points to anchor habitats are a nice touch. Give me low G, controlled weather, and no Mosquitos any day. Get us out of 'natural' ( ignoring the natural/unnatural false dichotomy) environments and in to ones designed by engineers to handle hard human loving.

Yes. Because when you think about luxurious comfort "designed by engineers" is the first thing that comes to mind.

The law is out of date

Apparently so. Given the overwhelming evidence that many of the activities mentioned in this thread do dramatically increase the risk of having an accident, it appears that a lot more things should be prohibited than actually are.

If we should ban looking at a map, maybe we need to ban street signs also, since reading those distracts you from driving.

You can always run denyhosts, block any IP that attacks you, but it sounds like these guys are on your side, doing penetration testing.
If they are not, block the addresses. If they are local staff, call the IT dept. and talk to them, don't post to /.

People whao are "on your side" would ask your permission before trying to break into your servers. These are criminals.

United States Begins Flying Stealth Bombers Over South Korea 567

skade88 writes "The New York Times is reporting that the United States has started flying B-2 stealth bomber runs over South Korea as a show of force to North Korea. The bombers flew 6,500 miles to bomb a South Korean island with mock explosives. Earlier this month the U.S. Military ran mock B-52 bombing runs over the same South Korean island. The U.S. military says it shows that it can execute precision bombing runs at will with little notice needed. The U.S. also reaffirmed their commitment to protecting its allies in the region. The North Koreans have been making threats to turn South Korea into a sea of fire. North Korea has also made threats claiming they will nuke the United States' mainland."
