Comment Re:North Korea (Score 1) 158

I've really looked at this problem, couple of issues came up
A) Why did they choose Tungsten Carbide instead of Eglin steel. just does not seem as effective
B) unless the design is conical in nature, 30% of Ball bearings are going towards earth ( could be a lot more if it's a ball design or tube design )
C) in any case, upon a Kessler Syndrome happening, space exploration would stop for 25 to 50 years unless someone comes up with a way to clean up space ( maybe a world wide concerted effort with lasers to clear a basic launch path. )

so the next step is for someone to create the clean up device.

the post by WikiLeaks specifically stated Family

A database of verified people and their family is a simple family kidnapping filter.
Bill made a lot on a deal, Bill is just a verified twitter user whom owns a store, brags about it business, and did a huge deal
that he's popping a bottle of wine.
Villain opens up the database and starts a review of reasonably near targets and finds Bill, Villian take his daughter and
Bill will have to pay $$$ to get his kid back ( which is most likely dead )

Those that buy data are trackable.
and facebook is troubling.

while you see it as a Doxxing Database, I see it as a kidnapping database.

Well, in the factual world, data is data. Causation and Correlation are not fact, but propaganda can make it like look fact. Great example is the Kevin Bacon game, given enough, people might think you know KB directly or have access to his ear.

Now more directly, I gather data all the time for my Real Estate business, I'm a realtor.
I note overgrown lawns and messy landscaping ( means they forgot to call the service, on holiday, or don't have money )
I note garage sales ( Means they might be cleaning house for a sale )
I note New Baba signs ( means they might sell and want to upgrade a house )
I see data all the time, and try profit from it.

> self-aggrandize their reputation:

what a wonderful phrase. I hope to use it. Anyway on to the reply

I have never liked Wikileaks in any way. Spilling the beans without some sort of check
and balance does more harm than good. That's why qualified, and skilled reporting, is
required. A good story will always sell, Great story's, make great reading IE: what you had mentioned.

I feel that people who are validated on Twitter will be subjected to Doxing and possible harm. You don't
have to be too famous to become a target of someone that wants to make quick cash.

I do know a bit about maritime law, if the drone was attached to the US vessel in any physical way, it's a huge violation.
Maritime laws have been around for a very long time. and stupid act's like that can lead to very physical trade problems,
maritime people are really different, they have to work together, because simple errors can now cost almost billions of dollars
worth of insurance claims. Also, how do nations retaliate, simple, Customs not clearing a ship or delay ( very few US flag
vessels call China, but many call USA ) can have a huge long term business cost to a steamship line.

b is cheap and to the point, Also it's easy to set up an appointment. call the local arb association and you can get 3 qualified to pick from. Court would be the next step, to collect.

Also, you have to look at it from my point... every seller wants more, every buyer wants it cheaper. both sides after 3 or 4 days get buyer's/seller's remorse. it's a fucking nightmare sometimes, I've seen fights break out at the closing table over 1 fucking key IE: it was a medco key, cost $25. and the seller wanted the buyer to pay for the second copy, and that's when I pulled out the listing contract and said " no, it's 2 main keys, you signed here remember ", and at the closing table is where people will try to screw you over ( both the seller and buyer ) that's why I never schedule both parties at the same time.

Also, do you want to take your client to public court, great reputation to have. No, Arb is always private and usually never even get's that far, good people realise the error and fix the problem.
