Comment wanst he trading in the FUTURE market? (Score 1) 209

I don't get it. He posted selling orders in the FUTURE, right? So, the wall street computers followed his bait, BECAUSE THEY CHOSE SO, right? How is that HIS fault? This sounds like wall street saying "you are being punished by beating us at our game" or like we say in brazil: "perdeu e levou a bola para casa"

Comment Does the mass of the device changes? (Score 1) 518

I wonder if the mass of the device changes after operating a while. Lets say the change of mass in the larger back plate is bigger than the the change in the smaller one, that would respect the conservation of momentum, and explain the thrurst (thrust will arise from the need to accomodate the difference of mass in the plates).

That's exactly what's happening in Brazil right now. US hacked Petrobras and disclosured only information related to the current political party in power, which has a non-US-aligned view in external affairs AND is not bending to international Multinational Corporations to weaken the work related laws. US also manipulated other local anarchist groups in protesting against government. And we are a friendly, democratic nation... like Germany! Even germany prime minister knew what was happening in Brazil in the world CUP and let a clue scape when she visited my country, Merkel said she would talk to Dilma "to understand the protests in Brazil". Both knew what was happening.. It was the US acting in both countries, Merkels phone was hacked by the US. Hell, US courts even disclosured what US intelligence agencies were doing to Brazil: US is waging cyber war in FRIENDLY nation. They call the hacking of GEMATO patriotism, and hacking of sony "cyber terrorism" I do not support communism, socialism or the current pary, but if I were a Brazillian authority I would issue an arrest order for US officiais in Brazil right now. My country is turning into a mess because of US actions. US throwed Brazillian goverment in a coup-de-etat supported by them 30 years ago and now they are doing it again! We are not Panama, we are a 200million nation, the 7th economy of the world. Hey forcing us to the same path they forced Venezuela in. Is there sanity in US government? I work for an american company. I love america and most people is nice and polite. But I fucking HATE the US goverment and OBAMA didnt help, despite my best hopes. Please american people, save us from your goverment, regain the power from the corporations.

Keep doing what you like, what you are best. This is how we produce, as a species, the advances, the new insights and the culture we need to understand ourselves. I bet Picasso heard many times "if only you painted that way"... As for the work of the guy in minecraft, that is an AWESOME educational tool. Millions of kids eyes are in minecraft, we must teach them THERE, make them interact and understand devices like the word processor, gate arrays, computers. Its a MUCH better, and interactive, way of learning.

Comment Attacking GOVERMENT servers under FBI guidance??? (Score 4, Insightful) 59

Attacking GOVERMENT servers under FBI guidance??? WTF is an internal north american police agency doing messing with brazilian goverment sites?? Omg, long time I dont care to login in slashdot to post something, but here it is:
VA SE FUDER US goverment
Fucking with my country supporting a military coup and keeping those murderers in power for 30 years wasnt enough? You are trying AGAIN to undermine a democratic goverment just because we have a non automatic alignment policy with the US on foreign affairs? Just because we supported democraticaly ELECTED Chaves and others in south america? All american authorities should be considered persona non grata in Brazil, and ALL US goverment agents related to FBI and NSA should be imediately ARRESTED in brazillian soil. I am tired of american goverment double face with friendly nations
