Comment Re:I never thought I'd live to see this (Score 1, Troll) 19

Yes, I agree I never thought it would come to this. But think about it in technology context for a moment. Google News, then Facebook, have been automatically curating news for a long time now. And Slashdot - the technical elite - is selecting, editing (mangling no more I guess) and then publishing them by hand. The irony kills me. Why are we doing it by hand?

Comment Re:Stupid citizens that didn't vote are to blame.. (Score 1) 621

THat's not true. There are a lot of EU citizens who have made their home in the UK and contributed to the society and to the country, and were excluded from voting. However, Irish, Maltese and Cypriot EU citizens resident here WERE allowed to vote on the referendum.
There is actually a case proceeding in the Scottish parliament on this very topic of disenfranchisement.

What country are you from? Or can you share a reference (here or via email) where I can read further on this. Thanks.
I find it is nearly impossible to Google for straight information about prostitution. Too much ideology wherever you look.

I'm not sure if you are trying to say that my response is off-topic, but really the stupid hydrogen economy needs to be compared against common sense tried and true technologies before we get so excited about it.
No, H2O2 is NOT an excellent way to store energy in a lot of circumstances - for instance, in an airplane. The fact that it's easier or safer than H2 doesn't make it easy or safe.
