Comment one possible scenario (Score 1) 715

There's one scenario that's in fact possible, but would also be very damaging to the DNC itself. Namely, we've all seen e-mails originating from Soros circles claiming that Hillary "is a done deal", indicating that all is being done in such way that Hillary would win, no matter real votes. Or as Stalin once said, it doesn't matter who and how he votes, but he who counts votes matter. Having so-called "Soros voting machines" installed throuout USA one could imagine that "Hillary is a done deal" may also mean that "Soros machines" were modifed, or in fact programmed (hacked?!) in such way to give desired result. In this case, votes for Hillary. If what's written above is true than only help to make things right would be either to expose DNC-Hillary-Soros conspiracy (very unlikely, as bought MSM would minimise it and start calling that it's just "conspiracy theory", etc.. Elections would go forward, Hillary would "win" and Trump would be unter tremendeaous pressure to "accept the results") OR to "unhack" said Soros voting machines. Enters Russians. If they indeed helped facilitate second scenario, to in fact un-hack Soros voting machines, so that they would calculate election results according to the choice selected by the voter (and not by any other method that would erase voter's will) then it would mean that DNC/Hillary/Obama (and finally CIA) couldn't really say that Russians hacked elections, but rather, they defended US democracy by preventing vote-faud on election day.

Comment Sun in a jar, never (Score 1) 431

Yeah, right. Stop dreaming about "Sun in a jar" as phisics and numbers for anything viable simply don't add up. Sun produces about 300 Watts of power per cubic meter of matter inside it's core. I do admire the zeal, and many good discoveries will probably come out of the research, but if the goal is to have sustained fusion inside a container, that would produce much more energy then it requires, it's just never, and I mean, never, gonna happend.

Comment bullsh*t pseudoscience (Score 0) 156

Pardon my french, but this is total crap. Thinking that man can cause mass extintion using anything but darkening Sun for a period of time, using, say, thermonuclear weapons, and lots, and lots of it, simply does not add up. Killing animals is not equal to mass extinction in any shape.

Comment Humpty Dumpty (Score 1) 554

"I don't know what you mean by 'glory,' " Alice said. Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. "Of course you don't - till I tell you. I meant 'there's a nice knock-down argument for you!' " "But 'glory' doesn't mean 'a nice knock-down argument'," Alice objected. "When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean - neither more nor less." "The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things." "The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master - that's all."

Comment Re:Not sure I understand this. (Score 1) 435

Perhaps it has something to do with the EULA, since software producers on ocasion claim that they own the software, and they don's sell it, but rather license it to use. Now, terms of the license probably do not cover "terrorist actions". So, if government has strong case (and several dead makes it rather compelling) they it may simply politely ask producer and the owner of the software to cooperate. Contrary to that software owner/producer may me seen as a collaborator. Of course, all that if owner can break in but refuses to do so. If it can't the story is much different.
