Proposed Law Would Require ID To Buy Prepaid Phones

ADHVfFsvjLIViaglKlqo Re:Yep (615 comments)

I'm hoping for nullification. If one of the larger states decided to, they could pretty much put a stop to all unconstitutional happenings within their borders. But I'm not optimistic, just hopeful. The end of our dollar will be mind-numbingly destructive, and as you suggested, nobody will understand why or how it happened, nor how to fix it.

Armstrong, Cernan Testify Against Obama Space Plan

ADHVfFsvjLIViaglKlqo Re:The question nobody can answer for me (411 comments)

Perhaps my question was too broad. Which specific clause grants Congress the power to create and fund an organization such as NASA?

ADHVfFsvjLIViaglKlqo The question nobody can answer for me (411 comments)

Where in the Constitution is Congress granted the power to create and fund an organization such as NASA? I challenge you who disagree with me to quote the section that grants them such power

For those who are unaware, the Constitution gives very limited and specific rights to Congress.

John Carmack To Cut Space Tourism Prices 50%

ADHVfFsvjLIViaglKlqo It'll never get that low. (185 comments)

As soon as it gets even remotely popular, the Government will step and tax and regulate it, and the prices will rise from there.

Speaking of auto-flushing toilets, am I the only one who is somewhat disturbed that the urinal knows when I put my manliness away?

ADHVfFsvjLIViaglKlqo Re:Why fear terrorists... (95 comments)

The terrorism threat is created by our Goverment's actions in the first place. So I guess the wasp is shooting us, or something.

Ubuntu on a Dime

ADHVfFsvjLIViaglKlqo Re:Its all about the command line stupid.... (531 comments)

Supporting the resolution output of unknown displays shouldn't be such a big deal. I agree it that name-calling is irritating, but that is the typical Linux guru's response to new Linux users' complaints. (See the majority of responses to my post.)

Ubuntu on a Dime

ADHVfFsvjLIViaglKlqo Re:Its all about the command line stupid.... (531 comments)

Guess what? If Ubuntu doesn't recognize your monitor, then there's no drop-down box. You must be a real dumb-ass for not knowing this. My monitor is a 5 year-old Multisync LCD. Pretty fucking obscure, apparently. Of course, Windows doesn't care what the monitor is and lets me set whatever resolution I desire, all from a right-click on the desktop.

MIT Researchers Harness Viruses To Split Water

ADHVfFsvjLIViaglKlqo The promises of H (347 comments)

I can remember an episode of In Search of... that showed a room-temperature form of liquid H that would replace gasoline with only a $35 modification to the carburetor.

Ubuntu on a Dime

ADHVfFsvjLIViaglKlqo Re:Its all about the command line stupid.... (531 comments)

I call bullshit. Ubuntu doesn't have a decent resolution editor, so every time I install it and it invariably fails to recognize my monitors and sets the resolution to fucking 800x600, I have to jump through hoops to a) set the resolution b) get the resolution to set itself correctly when booting. Nobody on the fucking worthless-as-tits-on-a-bull Ubuntu forums will do anything to help with these problems and if I file a bug report I basically get routed to Bug #1 in Ubuntu.
