Can't interest them in facts baffle em with bull sh!t.

As far as I know MS still holds the patent to smiley faces, the fact they have been around since the keyboard made no difference..

A rock "rolling" downhill has the same features of a wheel, when it hits and kills someone can I patent a new weapon?
I'll make much mention of the fact it was revolving to maintain accuracy.

A sling doesn't require a rock/stone to spin, in fact can't really pull it off.

Comment I don't like the word Bing (Score 1) 174

I've never really cared for it, in my area it could be taken for type of a cherry, but of little fact. Now MapPoint that is a search engine name. Google not forgotten with a name selected for what can only be called it's prime directive.

Not forgotten is also the daughter of the mathematician who sued to have that word (Google) back in his memory, I'm sorry but it is a good site name). They did your Dad good, take solstice in that.

The fact Google will control the world in a matter of years should add the cherry. The statement is a matter of the Google glasses that can read Pin Numbers.

Comment I've believed in the abominable snow man. (Score 0) 198

(now questioned)

I've believe something like the big foot or more importantly the abominable snow man for many years now.

Due to Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571, also known as the Andes flight disaster, in South America, this was a rugby team that crashed and survived close to two months, on a snow whipped mountain top.

The big deal about this crash is they had to eat the dead to live. The book (which I read) mentions two large "ape like creatures were that were "busy" in the route they were taking to get down so they diverted. They tried to wait them out but grew tired of waiting so circled around them. It sounded like they ("apes") were waiting for the survivor out of curiosity.

They might of of been called abominable snow men in the book but there was no real clue what they were other than very large, ape looking beings (given bears they could of been).

Comment I do this as EFF has asked before for others to it (Score 1) 184

I've seen 34 people (connections once), it all works fine until you can feel something odd, as which time I'll shut down my HotSpot, for a few days.

I do help many people (34 mayhaps) as it's always being used, and I noticed cars parked across the street or out of the way.

Yes I run a HotSpot as per EFF, yet will shut it down in a heart beat if it just feels funny (my connection).

Do you have any idea how much a pill that cures baldness would be worth? After erectile dysfunction that's like the holy grail of the pharmaceutical industry

I think anti-balding would be more popular since it would improve the chances of getting the women to pay attention in the first place.

LOL, Balding says ones testosterone is very high. lots of hair, ones testosterone is very low. I guess it depends upon the woman's desires - neglecting the cars, house, the money used to light the fire place...

BTW I have long hair :}

I think in medicine the "accidental" part is assumed.

There's a name for it, Serendipity, I think it was saccharin one person said to the other to test it, the other thought they said taste it. The rest is history serendipitously. Happens all the time.

Give a drug tested one condition and find the ones taking it don't smoke as much, a new track and quite the money maker.

The list is large.

any cell tower that's not in a location already know to the public

While I admit that I've never asked... do you think your average cell phone company will give you a list of geo-located towers they operate? ... as well as those of their partners who offer services which they piggy back on?

I thought I had many more book marked but is all I have in my list. If you access any of the cell phone areas of the UseNet you can get access to lots of links mainly for the height of the antenna so planes can miss the new ones (there is a height limit).

I seem to have more jammers (schematics) than anything else, most have been taken down.
