Comment Frozen while in space... (Score 1) 386

If the process of freezing the body took place in zero g as opposed to earthbound gravity, would the process of freezing the cadaver still cause the shredded cell damage we see in the earthbound process? Likewise since you already have the body in space maintaining frozen tempature in the absolute zero vacuum environment would alleviate the issues of energy expenditure. Simply put the body in an 'ark' type construct, no life support, no engine, steering, etc and get it into a 50 or 100 year orbit. Sounds like science fiction but...

Female character powers have gone up, along with boob dimensions, whilst waistlines, hemlines and clothing coverage have dis-proportionaly shrank! God Bless comic books, if it wasn't for them I wouldn't have developed the keen interest in realistic female body types that I posess today! I truly appreciate powerful, statuesque, scantilly clad women!

Increase the duration of the male engineer harvest season and increase the bag limit to 4 male engineers per season. In order to harvest a male engineer, the engineer must have at a minimum 1 set of calipers, a pencil and slide rule in either the left side front shirt or lab coat pocket...

Comment Re:Tactical EMP (Score 1) 208

I think the reusable part is eclipsed by the need to deliver the burst quickly and with (moderate) accuracy. You wouldn't know which way the swarm was coming or even multiple swarms from multiple directions. How are you going to drive that apparatus to the swarm? Maybe mounted on a shielded jet? But I still think the one time missle delivery would be cheaper more effective...

Comment Tactical EMP (Score 1) 208

Wouldn't a tactical EMP burst do the job in fairly short order? I imagine a tactical nuke detonated at ground level near perpendicular to a drone swarm could get the job done... So long as the burst was line of site to the swarm with nothing else within the blast radius.

Comment That's right... Work Harder! (Score 4, Insightful) 238

Rather than taking actions that short cuts the Constitution of the United States and infringes the rights of the citizen populace you claim to want to protect. Guess what, if the people of the US have lost faith and trust in the Military, Judiciary, Executive, and Legislative branches, as well as in Law Enfiorcement there is a reason for it. It's not some mass hallucination or mob mis-perception. The US Government has undermined the trust of the populace and now it is reaping the consequences. Don't bitch that the job is now harder because of infringements caused by corruption and incompetance within the highest corridors of power within the U.S.

Is this woman for real? She seems very protective of our Great Satan role. There are new vicious terrorists popping up everywhere, especially right here in our own back yard she seems to infer... And what the hell, the president thinks it's a good idea, so those of us in the congressional branch ought to jump right behind him on that, because, you know, he's a politician, we're politicians and we all just roll like that... Everyone knows that the American people don't need/want privacy anyhow... They will all feel so much better once we remove those annoying constitutional freedoms that are such a distraction in their day to day lives. Just like castrating a dog! How does that silly putz stay in office anyhow?

Comment I am shocked, SHOCKED!!!!! (Score 1) 246

Anyone that purchased, the grotesquely overpiced Transformer or Transformer Prime models, or experienced ASUS's lack luster support, indecipherable RMI process, on again/off again customer communication strategies or underwhelming, overpromised hardware/software tablet solutions is probably shocked to see this announcement.

The only thing that sucks worse than ASUS as a hardware manufacturer of tablets and OEM distributor/reseller is Microsoft as a tablet desinger/developer who uses ASUS hardware as a platform. It's the rotten olive atop a shit sandwich. Never again will ASUS get my custom...

Oh so true! Because we all know that people aren't graduating from college at the moment drowned in debt with no viable job's in the offing! Bravo! I'd say the knuckle dragging blue collar worker probably has a leg up on the debt saturated graduate in this period of the American Economy.
