Pentagon Reportedly Hushed Up Chemical Weapons Finds In Iraq

0dugo0 Yeah right.. (376 comments)

Invade Belgium and you'll probably find 50000 tonnes of 'hidden' chemical weapons. UNSC resolution 1441 was a pretext, and I'm not falling for it that the islamic state suddenly got WMD capabilities . None of these remnants can actually be fired and deliver the originally intended result. It is just a pile of toxic waste.

MtGox's "Transaction Malleability" Claim Dismissed By Researchers

0dugo0 Flawed assumption (92 comments)

They wrongly assume that they were able to capture all MtGox transaction attempts. Many were posted on their API that were never broadcasted over the network because they were broken / invalid. That didn't stop people from fixing and / or malleating (sp?) them.

0dugo0 Re:Unfortunately, More to Come (338 comments)

Of course there will be more to come.. maybe even a massive retro trend and we'll all have geocities style pages again, quit tweeting and filling out our .plan on panix instead and g-d forbid, cyber over IRC!

Are You Sure This Is the Source Code?

0dugo0 Deterministic builds.. (311 comments)

..are a bitch. The amount of hoops eg. the bitcoin developers jump through to proof they didn't mess with the build are large. Running specific OS build in emulators with fake system time and whatnot. No easy task.

Declassified LBJ Tapes Accuse Richard Nixon of Treason

0dugo0 I don't get it.. (536 comments)

Makes it sound like Nixon wanted to escalate war whilst offering a good (future) peace deal. Why on earth would a US presidential candidate want to escalate war, one only does these things out of absolute necessity, right!? There must have been stuff he didn't know before he was sworn in that made him renege on his offer.

Dennis Tito's 2018 Mars Mission To Be Manned

0dugo0 Re:What would be great (233 comments)

Don't let the breastapo hear this. The breast milk mafia has enough political clout to ban spaceflight with an insufficient stock of breasts.

Saudi Arabia Objects To Proposed .gay gTLD, Among Others

0dugo0 Re:Keep censoring and let the rest of the world go (459 comments)

It has something to do with the attitude that homosexuality is an insult to masculinity and men having sex with men being a different matter or something, can't get my head around very well either.

The Tricky Science of Olympic Gender Testing

0dugo0 Re:Is it true that Chinese girl pass all drug test (559 comments)

Not sure how quick the testing gets done. The first gene knockout in a rat was in 2003, I doubt they engineered human Ye in 1995. Maybe he is using the broad definition of `genetic manipulation' as in selecting parents, but there are no rules against that!
