Grand Ayatollah Says High Speed Internet Is "Against Moral Standards"

0a100b Re:If the Grand Ayatollah's against it.... (542 comments)

"W" is the 23rd letter of the alphabet, W = 23 = 2 X 3 = 6 : WWW = 666.

This I've never understood. What's wrong with WWW = 232323, 216 (6 X 6 X 6), or even 2 (2 X 1 X 6 = 12, 1 X 2 = 2)?
When to multiply digits and when not seems kind of arbitrary to me.

Grand Ayatollah Says High Speed Internet Is "Against Moral Standards"

0a100b Re:If the Grand Ayatollah's against it.... (542 comments)

Why don't we ask the atheist communists that imprisoned, tortured, and murdered people for going to church?

What has that to do with this thread about the number of the beast?

But I'd guess that you would get the same answer from them as other groups that have imprisoned, tortured, and murdered people for their beliefs; it is for the good of the community, or even humanity.

BTW, why single atheist communists out from other ideological or religious nut cases?

5 Years Later, 'Do Not Track' System Ineffective

0a100b Re:"A Contract" (254 comments)

Exactly, the euphemism "tracking" should be dropped and it should be called by its proper name: stalking.
I hope, most likely in vain, that cyberstalking laws could (one day) be used against these stalking advertisers.

Bradley Manning Sentenced To 35 Years

0a100b Re:Good (491 comments)

Serving your country and serving your government are not necessarily the same thing. I think Manning was serving his country but not his government.

Are There Any Real Inventors Left?

The light bulb is probably seen as a symbol for electric lighting, which was of course much more revolutionary than the iPhone.

0a100b Re: CB Radios (938 comments)

Traffic has changed much since the 70s, at least where I live, roads have become much more crowded. Nowadays traffic demands much more attention than in those days.That's a major reason why there is much more discussion about distractions in traffic now.

ACTA Signed By 8 of 11 Participating Countries

0a100b Re:Countries? (213 comments)

Not all EU members accept the same currency, the UK, for example, has its own currency. And not all EU members have signed the Schengen Area, which is the 'borderless' area. Its more complicated than you think.

Illinois Declares Pluto a Planet

I always thought that the official name was Sol and Sun was just english for Sol, and the same for Luna/Moon.
Are there any other languages that use the names "Sun" and "Moon"?
