Comment Re:Big data is gonna kill small crime (Score 1) 49

Because the multiple trillions of dollars we've already spent trying to instill common sense into people, the multitude of social programs designed to try and help people get jobs or a roof over their head, the grants or subsidies to help people start their own businesses and all the other programs who in one way or another have tried to set people on the correct path to life have worked so well we should spend trillions more.

The easiest way to reduce the prison population and those committing repeat crimes is to execute people. Domestic violence. Gone. You don't beat the crap out the woman (or man) you're living with and think that's acceptable.

You don't have multiple crimes against you before you're 18 then get a free pass to start the process over. Rapes, child molestation/rape, recidivists, murderers in general, gone.

Clean out the system instead of coddling and you will see a dramatic improvement in society. With the criminals gone, who will commit the crimes?

When are drugs like flupirtine going to be available in the US?

When the DEA can figure out the correct amount of Tylenol to require to be added to every pill to ensure that anyone taking enough to get high will die. Just because it's not an opioid doesn't mean it doesn't make people feel good, and our government cannot allow that under any circumstances.

Just a minute sir, I understand that you are in urgent need but we are still reviewing your account details.

OK, we have determined you have a credit card with a $4000 limit and a current balance of $381.17. This brings your charge for our lifesaving drug to 3618.83. Do I have your permission to proceed?

Ah, sorry, I charged this to your bank card and it was rejected with an overdraft fee. I've reprocessed it to your VISA and it was approved.

Sir? Sir?

Because allowing people to "buy" products to which you have no right to be "selling" in the first place is something we should defend.

When your company produces a product I'll be sure to "share" it with millions of people while charging them for it. I'm certain your company won't mind me making money off their efforts.

Tee hee! Back in the day, one of the points I made to the old farts was that I had passed the 20 WPM exam and had my K6BP call to show for it, but refused to use the code on the air until the requirement was gone. Nobody spat at me or punched me out, the worst that ever happened was a poor behaving slim using my call and a postcard from the ARRL observer who thouht it was me.

WSPR tells you when communication paths are open between two points at a specific frequency and S/N ratio. This is useful but does not span the extent of research that HAARP is directed to. One of the most interesting things about HAARP is that it can incite the formation of radio-reflective regions in the ionosphere. That takes a lot of power.
