Comment Political Elites (Score 1) 352

The political elites don't like it when the sheeple find out how bent and broken the system actually is. If the system was not so bent then the emails would have done any damage but would have highlighted how good it is. But instead the exposed emails show how the elites and the bent corporate financiers are giving each other blow jobs then the next day raping an pillaging your average tax payer.

The stupid thing about all this is the computers he is fooling are technically insider trading anyway. Basically the big financial traders computers insert orders based on incoming orders so as to shaft Mr and Mrs Smith who are placing orders via their home PC.Thus they are using information not available to the general public and using that to inside trade your average american tax payer. Basically Navinder saw the scam and realised the scam itself had a hole in the logic and thus he screwed the people screwing everyone else. Now the political puppets don't like it when anyone but their backers screws the public thus they want to throw him in jail so they can keep the scam going.

Accept there is one small problem, China's legal system isn't a rule of law system but a corrupt rule of man system. Basically there are some general rules in the chinese legal system but they are changed at a whim in court. A rule of law system is that irrespective of the mood of the judge or the politicians the law is the law.

The law identifies generality and specifics in judgements, torrent indexing sites who's indexing database contain torrent links with a majority of them being illegal would be seen by the courts as criminal. Google on the other hand indexes everything not just torrents and even then Google does attempt to re-direct torrent queries to legal download sites.

nice try but you are miles out, btw I have been happily married to an asian wife for 23 years. And if you think I'm bad you will spit out your lunch, dinner and tea after learning every asian culture have even worse stereotypes for each other than anything I could drag up.

also when has stating reality been a racist comment!! The reality is the same would apply to a western trained english speaking engineer trying to join a predominantly asian engineering team in lets say Japan. I would happily accept that they have more asians than westerners on a Japanese team and will employ (yeah dream on) a few western engineers for off shore sales and translation. Have you ever tried getting a job as a western engineer in lets say Japan even "when there is no language barrier". Trust me you will feel like an Olympic champion in an arse kicking team after 12 months of employers pretending your application never even turned up.

Accept it is a waste of money to look for aliens and yes Im a space news fan. First off, Im not saying aliens do or do not exist only that there is bigger problem with finding them. First of lets ignore the fact the universe is insanely big thus that alone makes finding aliens a huge problem. No lets look at something everyone forgets to look at when talking about looking for aliens, and that is "time". Just like space time is fricken huge, there are approx 13.82 billion sol year time units on the table right now. So how does this effect finding aliens, well the question I will throw back is how long do you expect a space going empire to survive before it either destroys itself of collapses. I'm going with 150,000 years and to be honest even then I think I am over doing it. So lets say the first 6 billion years of our galaxy didn't have the right conditions for intelligent life forms so that leaves 13.82 - 6 = 7.82 billion years. So how many 150k space faring cycles can I fit into 6 billion years, the answer is 40,000. Thus in linear time periods there has been over 40,000 space going boom and crash space empire slots. So for humanity to find aliens we must be alive and looking during a period when an alien race is still exploring space and the chances of that are very very, very, small. In fact the odds are in favour that we exist in a period with no space going aliens in our region either because we are too soon or too late to enter the space exploring ball game.
