I define

Your definition is irrelevant. Your narcissism, adorable.

Do you?

Do you know you're entitled to your own opinion however you are not entitled to your own facts. You *still* don't know what you are talking about.

The issue isn't nearly as bad as it was in the days of leaded gasoline in cars, but I'm a tad worried about it all the same.

Perhaps you have ingested tritium during adolesence.

If you knew what you were talking about you could explain the joke, figure out what its about and explain why. However you don't get it because you don't understand the facts. Sad, it's really quite funny but I doubt you'll be able to figure it out before this thread closes.

I am well aware of the distinction

Prove it. What is the relationship between radioactivity and radionuclide?

Yes, those acronyms. Thanks.

You are welcome, you obviously need to begin your education somewhere.

Comment Lefties? (Score 1) 9

If not being heartless is being a leftist, then I'm leftist. Letting children die so you can become even more filthy rich is just pure evil.

This is a drug that costs less than ten bucks to manufacture that stops children from dying a horrible death from a severe allergy. Charging six hundred bucks for it is beyond criminal and wel into Evil with a capital E. Satanically evil.

Comment Taxes are punishment? (Score 1) 2

If taxes are punishment then the rich need their taxes tripled after all the unpunished evil they've done so far this century. The poor are being punished enough - by the rich. If having to pay for roads and bridges is punishment, then having to pay for food and water is, too.

As a Christian, I have no problem with taxes (Mark 12:17). Of course, if you worship mammon rather than God, taxes would indeed be punishment.

Comment Re:How is this different from any university? (Score 1) 102

Mostly 'cause my degree costed like 5000 bucks. Our universities challenge your brain, not your wallet.

It's easy to get in, IIRC the financial investment is roughly 500 bucks a semester. Most of it is state funded. You'd assume that everyone and their dog takes that offer? You bet. So the university has zero, none, nada requirement or even interest to hold your hand and carry you through. You make it, great, if not, step aside you're holding the line up. Dropout rates are "insane" by US standards, but it has its advantages. First of all, those that do manage to get through this are good. Really, really good. And second, nobody has time for bullshit like "microaggressions" or "safe spaces".

Comment Hmmm.... makes me ponder.... (Score 1) 75

Considering the whole mess that PC game was is a half-baked, barely ported console clone, one has to wonder whether that rootkit exists in the console version as well, and whether it can be used to gain control over the system...

Why should rootkits only work against the interests of the person owning... ok, that's saying too much, "being in the possession of" is a better term ... the machine?

Comment Re:Going from bad to worse (Score 1) 75

Great, so next time you buy a house I won't hear you complain about shoddy insulation, leaky windows, doors I cannot lock and moldy rooms because it has walls and a roof, so the most important things are there. But I promise to deliver the door locks and insulation within the month, promised. I'll also deliver the missing walls and shingles when we remove the mold.

Then 6 months later I come and charge you extra for all that. Without delivering it, of course.

I am sure I won't hear a single complaint from you, right?

Japan has had no serious nuclear accidents; at least, not serious in terms of public safety.

Fukushima is an INES level 7 event defined as a 'Major' accident which is more severe than a INES level 6 event defined as a 'Serious' accident. You are clearly, with regards to then international communities definitions of the terms in International Nuclear Event Scale, wrong.

It repeat after me:

No, you don't know what you are talking about.

Here's my breeder reactor design and I'm 70% sure it'll work despite my knowing almost nothing

What could possibly go wrong. Go read up on EBRII, IFR. Go find out what the difference between a Fast 'Burner' and Fast Breeder.

but we don't go apeshit over it because that news story doesn't contain the magic word:


Figure out the difference between radionuclide and radioactive. What is bio-accumulation? You need to understand this first.
