Comment that's dishonest (Score 1) 177

of course you can build a PC from parts for much less than a prebuilt machine such as a mac. ho hum. companies assemble components and mark finished items up for profit, news at eleven.

find me a PREBUILT computer, from a sizable vendor, with equivalent hardware AND EQUIVALENT BUILD QUALITY, that is significantly cheaper than a comparable mac. not as easy, eh?

Comment asking for new constructions to use new designs (Score 1) 351

if the most modern nuclear reactor under construction is still using decades-old designs and still produces substantial nuclear waste, and there are much newer, cheaper, cleaner, safer designs that EXIST NOW that could be used...

then yeah. that seems like a pretty reasonable request to me! why are we not building them again?

cmon guys you aren't even trying here! from the fucking summary:

"One strong possibility is that people who are already having depressive symptoms start to use social media more, perhaps because they do not feel the energy to drive to engage in as many direct social relationships," said Dr. Brian Primack

Comment YES IT IS BETTER TO KEEP SELLING IT (Score 1) 508

YES IT IS BETTER TO KEEP SELLING THE DRUG THAT WILL LITERALLY SAVE THOUSANDS OF LIVES PER YEAR.

did you read the post you replied to? 3645 women DIE EVERY YEAR FROM CERVICAL CANCER.

The vaccine prevents most HPV infections, which prevents most cases of cervical cancer. If every person got the vaccine, it would prevent thousands of deaths per year. (projecting forward twenty or thirty years when the 11-year old girls receiving the vaccine are at the age where they would start succumbing to and dying from cervical cancer.)

so yes, they should keep giving the vaccine out while they investigate it. because a few hundred reports of pain are trivial when compared to thousands of deaths.
