Comment HBO's Hacking Democracy (Score 1) 1321

The HBO documentary Hacking Democracy shows how easy it is. The Voting Machines In The Feature Film 'HACKING DEMOCRACY' Counted America's Votes In The November 2016 Elections.

During the 2004 presidential election in Florida, Gore had negative votes (or not enough positive ones to reach zero) on some of the voting machines. The smart card prior to being used is initialized and a summation of all the candidates votes is taken and checked to be zero. If some candidates have a positive number and others have negative values and the sum is zero, it passes its integrity check.

Clearly you not only didn't RTFA, you didn't even read the summary...

It is certainly clear that I did read both and you had not, and you insist on being an ass. From the summary "Then a hydrophobic nanocoating was created for circuit boards to make them water resistant", and from the article:

"The cookware formulation also was tweaked so it can better handle high temperatures.
"Anywhere you don't want corrosion, or ice or things to get wet, this works well," Jones said.
"When you start thinking about it, there are a lot of places where that's good."

You may want to check your facts before initiating a fight and accusing people of things like this.

You are anot unique. I have had cataract surgery on both eyes many years ago and have also noticed a different frequency response in either eye while looking at uv bug lamps. In the left eye the lamps appear much brighter than the right. I have the serial numbers and manufacturer infomation and could research it further, but I did not think I could actually see into the uv spectrum and though it was likely a difference in the manufacturing process with the addition of a uv filter since the lenses and surgeries were several years appart.
