Submission + - SPAM: Hillary Clinton has Parkinson's Disease

justthinkit writes: Dr. Ted Noel makes ten points that show that Hillary Clinton's symptoms are consistent with Parkinson's disease. Two days after the Next News Network interview with him — where the 10 points are discussed in detail — Hillary collapses at the 9/11 memorial, and the official story after is that she was dehydrated (on a 79 degree day) and that she has pneumonia. Some major news sites (like NBC News) have covered the story, but there is no mention on Facebook's "trending" section (unconfirmed as I never go to Facebook). Hillary has become famous for coughing fits and even head bobs (with over 400 reported at one event) — with both of these consistent with Parkinson's Disease. If she has Parkinson's, should she still be allowed to become President?

Submission + - YouTube censorship disguised as demonetization?

justthinkit writes: On August 31, 2016 YouTube demonetized videos for reasons that appear to punish those who attack "Social Justice Warriors" and the mainstream media. Philip DeFranco has spoken out about it and hinted he may have to move to other video platforms. Is this an issue most should care about or is it merely a first video world problem?

Submission + - Is Sci-Hub the future of research? 1

justthinkit writes: Alexandra Elbakyan's appears to have found a way for academics to obtain research papers they have paid legal access to, while turning Sci-Hub into TPP of research. interviewed her, revealing a person with equal parts daring and calm. Is this the future of content in an increasingly paywalled and Ad Block-blocked world?

Submission + - Will Vivaldi be enough to switch you back? 1

justthinkit writes: Vivaldi is billing itself as the power user's browser and Ars went hands-on with it today. It appears to have the cred, with Vivaldi's CEO being Jon S. von Tetzchner, the co-founder and former CEO of Opera. So, would/will you switch back to "opera" if it was/is called Vivaldi?

Submission + - Google Chrome using all memory (

justthinkit writes: "Chrome using all your RAM, even when it is the only thing running?" Ok, normally this is a bug report. Send report. Wait. Problem solved. But Chrome has been doing this for quite some time. Thousands, or millions, are affected. And incredibly, there seems to be no solution in sight. Has anyone found a way around this?

Submission + - CDC caught in scientific fraud (

justthinkit writes: With a full headline of "CDC caught in scientific fraud, perpetrating vaccine violence against blacks in shocking eugenics cover-up", the waiting begins. The evidence is coming from a whistleblower, and will be "made public in mere days." The story continues with "MMR vaccine causes autism"...and the CDC knew it. For 12 years. So are Slashdotters still going to say vaccines are harmless? This is almost sacred ground for some.

Submission + - Tattoos and why we love/hate them

justthinkit writes: For years I've pondered why people get tattoos. I've studied them, laughed at them and admired them. I've watched several tattoo reality shows and watched friends and closer get tattoos. But if I became Emperor I would ban the word "tattoo" and replace it with the word "mistake", as I think that is usually what they become, sometimes immediately. Still I'm occasionally open-minded and would love to hear other perspectives on the subject. What are your thoughts on tattoos? Do you have one or more? Are they visible? If you have tattoos, do you have piercings? How much have you spent on tattoos? Do you have any tattoos that you regret? What tattoos were painful? Do you have a favorite tattoo, on yourself or someone else? Which area of the body is the best place to have one? And the worst placement for a tattoo?

Submission + - Have they discovered a new particle? (

justthinkit writes: "Live Science reports on the findings of researchers from Amherst College and the University of Texas at Austin that speculate there might be "a new fundamental force of nature". Having alleged long-range effects it may turn out to be electromagnetism in disguise. Still, the prospects are interesting. Thus far there are 3 possible explanations, including an "unparticle" and a Z' (pronounced "Z-prime"). Does anyone have a simple(r) explanation of the "long-range spin-spin interaction" observed?"

Submission + - Best 32-bit System In 2012 (

justthinkit writes: "I have a number of applications that will not run on 64-bit Windows, but I would like to gain the benefits (most better caching) of having more than 4GB of RAM. Am I stuck with these Windows operating systems? And why is Windows Server 2008 Datacenter and Enterprise not included on that page? Should I go with a Linux or Win 7/8 system, and run a VM of Windows XP? Is this a solved problem or a lost cause?"

Submission + - Why do you hate your printer?

justthinkit writes: "After buying the big black ink cartridges for my Canon Pixma printer, only to have them be ignored while I use up the other inks, despite having my printer set to "grayscale", I am ready to buy another printer. Thanks to Slashdot I've learned to go back in time to the era of laser printers, only now I need to choose the best one of those. We need to print & scan, with almost zero faxing. I have narrowed my search down to an HP LaserJet Pro M1212nf or a Canon MF4450 but there seem like dozens of printers I could choose from. Since printers are practically free, and their supplies practically gold-plated, it comes down to which printer will I hate the least?"

Submission + - Have you Bumped someone today? (

justthinkit writes: "You can now give other drivers a piece of your mind without the limitations of horns and high beams, or the risk of road rage. Bump lets you connect your email address to your license plate, allowing you to harass the chick in the red convertible from the comfort of your barcalounger. Does anyone see any opportunites or problems with this kind of service?"

Submission + - What gadgets go on your pedalled ride? (

justthinkit writes: "Bicycle ridership is rising faster than the Shuttle, but is safety (and comfort) improving as quickly? What toys and tools are you using to have a safe, more comfortable commute? Anyone using the compressed air horn that fits in your closed fist and taps a supply of air in a bottle the size of a water bottle? I could see semis & dump trucks flipping over when they heard it. How about an electric motor add-on — is it worth the weight? Share your best bike secrets and maybe save a life."
