If you examine the history of this admittedly abhorrent but very rare practice (now seen among the very remote and most illiterate of the population), it started because Hindu (Rajput) widows who lost their husbands defending their kingdoms against Islamic invaders from the middle east preferred to jump into the spouse's funeral pyre's rather than be raped and pillaged by the barbarous invaders, without the protection of the men-folk.
If you look up the Koran, it explicitly allows the Muslim pillagers to loot the invaded territories, and rape their womenfolk, as winnings for the victorious soldiers -- this is something that the Hindu women did not want to subject themselves to, and they preferred to commit suicide instead.
Later, unfortunately, the practice devolved into the superstitious and despicable form which you are referring to.
This assertion is completely false. Hindus believe there is One God with many Names.
Is it really that hard to understand that each human mind can have it's own conception of what we call a $DIETY or $GOD. The oldest Hindu scripture and the foundation of this religion/philosophy (and later, it's offshoot Buddhism (Buddha was born a Hindu but then decided to start a fresh Philosophy, without some of the superstitious aspects that had crept into Indian society by then), the RigVeda (indeed the oldest extant texts in any Indo-European language) starts of saying essentially that there is One God, which People call by Many Names.
They call him Indra, Mitra, Varuna, Agni, and he is heavenly nobly-winged Garutman.
To what is One, sages give many a title they call it Agni, Yama, Matarisvan.

This makes this philosophy (that existed incidentally before any of the religions, even Hinduism as it was named later by the Britishers and other colonizers) intrinsically and naturally pluralistic (Pluralism, open minded and tolerant.
pluralism definition. A conviction that various religious, ethnic, racial, and political groups should be allowed to thrive in a single society. In metaphysics, pluralism can also mean an alternative to dualism and monism.
Indeed, not just tolerant, but accepting of other faiths, since it believes (not just believes, but practically tells the practitioner to experience the truth for him/herself by Direct experience/intuition through Yoga/meditation and other techniques and find out for oneself with the help of a spiritual Teacher) that practically each thinking mind can have it's own name, form and concept of the Truth (as they preferred to call it (that which is not False)), but the Absolute Truth (call it the Divine Mother (Hindus also worship the Divine in its Feminine form - Shakti or simply Divine Power lies beyond the conception of the normal planes of consciousness (those who have reached it describe it as Sat-Chid-Ananda, (translated it simply means the direct experience of that which is Existence-Knowedge-Bliss - Pure Consciousness, once again call it God, Shiva, Jesus, or by any other name, just don't kill each other over $IT) and can be experienced in higher planes of expanded consciousness.
This experience is pretty much each street level druggie is unconsciously craving and trying to kill/OD him/herself over instead of reaching it through safer, tried and tested means like (e.g. Yoga, because they take more persistence and effort. Also, Yoga is just a Path, as there are others, as Buddhism, Christianity, and other $RELIGIONS and what not theoretically, each person as on his own Spiritual Journey over lifetimes of Incarnations) that have helped millions of others reach it safely and surely in this very lifetime, if not the next, and the next, and the next,
The explosion appears to have started in stage II. You can't test fire stage II, so why would it even have fuel in it?
It wasn't even SpaceX's decision; the payload owner makes the choices like that.
That is an interesting bit of information which I was unaware of.
You're a bit early. By Bishop Ussher's chronology, the world will be 6019 years old in about 7 weeks.
That said, although Ussher's chronology is the best known, other biblical/historical chronologies exist varying by decades or more from this.
If you static fired without payload, you'd then have significantly longer between the static test fire and launch (during which something might break) and you'd need to lower the rocket to horizontal to attach the payload and raise it again, again with the potential for breaking something. You'd also have each launch keeping the launch pad occupied for longer.
So, it is a trade-off, and you'd need an intimate knowledge of the rocket and launch operations to know whether SpaceX's choice to test with payload was correct.
(1) Investigate safety critical devices for security flaws until you find one
(2) Short sell the manufacturer of the flawed device
While I don't see anything illegal here, I'd want the advice of a good lawyer before putting it into practice.
For all but a handful of years in my life (and every year for the last two decades) I've had a planet in the way of viewing Perseids.
On the bright side, if I optimistically head out tonight and find that the planet has unexpectedly cleared away, I'm sure the view will be really spectacular.
You think you've got problems with mere clouds. For all but a handful of years in my life (and every year for the last two decades) I've had a planet in the way of viewing Perseids.
A DDOS attack does nothing to attack the integrity or security of the data. The success of a DDOS attack only indirectly calls data safety into question - if they were not able to defend against DDOS, perhaps they're also not good enough to maintain security.
As an aside, I'm currently living in Australia, and the site worked fine for me at about 6pm.

To bring down a murderous nut-cult, you have to do what the Brits did to the Thuggee. You have to infiltrate them, identify their leaders, and kill them. If the Brits had been worried about offending the peaceful worshippers of Kali, India would STILL be plagued by ritual murders today.
Wow, I hope to God (or Goddess) that you know that what you're referring to is fiction: http://indianajones.wikia.com/... .
Kali continues to be (peacefully) worshiped as a very popular form of the Goddess or the Mother of the Universe in Hinduism in India, Nepal and even in Tibet and some forms of Buddhism but I'm not entirely sure about the latter.
Any program which runs right is obsolete.
