"Nuclear waste" is mostly unspent fuel that can be reprocessed and used again. The US just decided not to invest in the facilities to do so. The remainder of the reactor output is short-lived radiologicals useful for medicine and some other isotopes that can be used as fuel in a molten-salt reactor. Nuclear "waste" isn't a fundamentally difficult problem.

Submission + - The Rust programming language reaches 1.0 alpha (

c0d3g33k writes: Rust, a new a systems programming language with a focus on safety, performance and concurrency, has released the 1.0 alpha version of the language. This means that the language and core libraries are feature-complete for the 1.0 release. In practical terms, this means that the rate of change experienced by early adopters will slow down dramatically and major breaking changes should be very rare (during the alpha cycle some major changes may still occur if considered necessary). The language will stabilize further when the beta stage is reached (planned for six weeks from now). More details can be found in the announcement post at

They should take this site and give it a new name. Or get Malda to let them use "Chips & Dips".

Leave everything else intact, archives, user ID database, everything except the name.

Then use the Beta code and start a new site and give it the name, and they can have what they want without the embarrassment of having the current userbase escape from the basement or the attic and offend the sensibilities of the yuppies or hipsters or metrosexuals or whoever it is that they really want for an "audience".

You're missing the entire point of the story of the woman caught in adultery. Lev 20:10 prescribes the death penalty for _both_ parties, man and woman. The scribes and Pharisees brought Jesus a woman, alone, saying she had been caught in adultery. The obvious question is "With whom?" and also, "How did these super-religious types know where to find an adulterous woman?" It's not unreasonable to suppose one, several, or all of them had slept with her and were under the death penalty as well. Else why would these men, hot on the idea of stoning, be stopped in their tracks?
