Comment Re:Not true I bet. (Score 1) 162

Soy products are hard to avoid now days, whether you want to or not. They are about 20% of our diet. We also eat allot of vegetables, rice, and small amounts of meat as well. Maybe it is a total of 20-30% of our overall diet at most. To be honest I simply don't feel great if I eat massive quantities of meat day in and out.

Um, 50 years old and yes I would. Whats more, if it were decent and the texture was close enough I would integrate it into my diet and a normal thing. We already have soy based meats as part of our diet as it is. In the case of a couple of the products I would defy you to tell the difference of it from meat. The product is that good. In the case of the case of the IVM, I like the idea of it far more than an animal being put through what they are only to be killed in the end for my burger. IF there is an option like the IVM that is close to the taste/texture and even double the price we are there. I sure as hell hate the idea of what animals go through to end up on my plate.

Only if you actually look at the sign on the side of the road! I focus on the traffic and the road only and care not a bit about anything not directly in front of or to the side on the vehicle I am piloting at the time. If I am distracted by a sign with targeted adverts like this I will simply make a mental note of the company for which the ad is for and be sure to not do business with them in the future. If we all did this on a daily basis the rapid results would be removal of the systems from road sides. Advertisers correlate increases and decreases in sales to ongoing ad campaigns and act rapidly to the numbers. We as consumers need to punish companies for this sort of invasive bullshit from the start if we hope to not be bombarded with this kind of crap not just on the road but in any other public and private places we go.

So let me try to get my head up my ass far enough to see this from the perspective of the father. Likely he bought her the car, knowing full well its potential. She being an immature spoiled little rich girl goes out that night and parties drinking to real excess. She CHOOSES to drive home rather than sobering up or calling a taxi and while in route is driving over her head and skill level and exacerbated by her drunkenness she is in an accident that kills her and her friend. Now correct me if I am wrong here but, having driven a fair number of times in my younger years while VERY drink on a motorcycle that is as fast as the Tesla, how the fuck is this Tesla's fault? I mean I have been so drunk that I was unable to physically walk. I still rode my bike home. Yes I know, fucking stupid. I was fully aware of my limits and rode in an extremely sedate manner to assure that as few were at risk as possible. Not Tesla's fault, stupid drivers fault... PERIOD!

It is in fact the same thing. The marked bills and the malware serve the very same purpose in each example. I go to a bank and rob it, I end up with marked bills. The FBI then, through all the information at their disposal, requests a warrant and it is granted. They find said bills in my possession and I am charged. Same situation but this time I go to a kiddi porn site and while there I pickup a bit of identification malware that reports back to the FBI markers that are then used to obtain a warrant. Said warrant is then used to raid my home or place of business or where ever and they find kiddi porn on my computer as well as the malware. I am charged with the crime and take my chances in court. It is very much the same thing. The fact that there are others that are outside of the jurisdiction of the FBI also being marked in this is not relevant. If the FBI chooses to forward the information to the proper authorities in the offenders country and they are able to then prosecute them then I still don't see your point as to this being a non constitutional search. No search happens until after the offender visits the site, is marked with the Malware, Identified, and then a warrant is obtained in a court from a judge.

That and the OS pushes adds on the desktop on boot of the display. No way to remove or turn them off. I have a pair of Samsung plasma displays and like them but the new 4K I bought for my desktop PC has this issue and it pisses me off to no end. Even if the display is marginally better than the LG OLED I will not buy another samsung display because of the adds.

Spot on sir... It was to be expected when they came after him like they did. Funny thing is that I would bet good hard currency that the Russians already knew about the programs in great detail from their hacking of the assets that Snowden and other admins were working on. Two admin types, those that know they have been hacked and those that think that they haven't.

Problem with them is simple. They chose to use a DCMA take down on a valid review of one of their cameras that was not the glowing and fawning review they desired. So in the end they will never get a purchase from me. If on the other hand they had acted like adults and taken the reviewers noted issues into account rather than acting like little assholes they would have been far better off in my eyes. More to the point, had they tried to address them in the next iteration of the product or firmware update rather than covering them up, I might actually own one now. Fuck GoPro, burn in hell. There are plenty of other great action cameras out there that deserve our support rather than these tools!

Pretty sure that the republicans are gonna fall in line and do what Pres. elect FuckWit wants if it benefits their benefactors. And it will. I am more than happy to watch the guy back out of every pledge he made to the uneducated people that put the post turtle where he and "he who drinks the cool aid" are soon to be shortly. And he is presently. The ones he will push hard for are going to be bad for the poor and the middle class all the while moving more wealth into the hands of the top 3% or so. After four years you will be wondering how you could have voted for them and yet you will be so stupid that you will return to you place of shame and repeat past mistakes. Best part is that you will feel the pain but your kids will be the ones to pay a far greater toll than you could have imagined.
