Fake "Speed Enforced By Drones" Signs On California Freeways

ArtemaOne ED-209 (218 comments)

There's no reason these have to be flying drones. You have 15 seconds to comply.

Police, Copyright Industry Raid Movie Subtitle Fansite

ArtemaOne Re:Translation is a copyright owner's exclusive ri (344 comments)

Totally wrong. If you have the disc how do you think you can mux in fan subs? The people using these are torrenters, not those that just bought a disc. Yes, there are ways to rip, transcode and remux, but be honest, we all know these subs are for pirated videos.

Are you kidding? Ever heard of VLC? You can play DVD or video files and use any subtitles you want.

The Amish Are Getting Fracked

ArtemaOne Re:But, Corporations are People! (367 comments)

Who overpays CEO's and upper management to the tune of up to 399 times the lowest wage? Who sidesteps billions in taxes that could build american infrastructure or help millions of Americans improve their lives? Who uses American tax breaks and then refuses to hire american despite huge profits?

Apple?

NHTSA and DOT Want Your Car To Be Able To Disable Your Cellphone Functions

ArtemaOne Re: First (405 comments)

Maybe you don't understand what compact means? A compactor crushes things that are bigger or heavy into a smaller package. Some small cars weigh a LOT now, but are still much smaller than a standard sized car.

PETA Wants To Sue Anonymous HuffPo Commenters

ArtemaOne Re:vs the James Rosen / Stephen Kim story (590 comments)

1. Bradley Manning is someone who entered a voluntary military service commitment that does not extend to civilians. His situation is unique to those in the military, and cannot be compared. He swore oaths, and committed an offense for which I believe he should be hanged. Free speech with a security clearance, NDA, and the UCMJ is limited, and it is something you agree to when you volunteer to be military. Now, Wikileaks I think is fine. They publish whatever is given to them, and it is legal.

House Bill Would Mandate Smart Gun Tech By U.S. Manufacturers

ArtemaOne Re:Movies are real! (750 comments)

His point is this is a way to ban guns. Do you know what happens when you impose restrictions on aspects of guns? Look in California where the magazine limit is 10, and the white-list. The number of options available to you in terms of model selection has instantly dropped to less than 1% of available models. Did you want a version of that gun in pink? Sorry, not legal for purchase in California. What is different than the scary black version? It's not on the roster, or it holds 11 rounds, etc. This law will make guns cost $2k or more for unreliable weapons, instead of a few hundred $ for guns that could probably fire covered in your blood and sand and dirt. The rifle I chose is based on a design that can fire under nearly any external conditions, and the chance of a jam is nearly non-existant. You want a weapon to fire without fail, and you secure it without fail when it is not in use. No kid has shot himself or another with a lock through the action.

UN Says: Why Not Eat More Insects?

ArtemaOne Re:Parasites (626 comments)

I completely am. I've mostly seen American ventures into eating bugs. Also I recall the chocolate covered ants I saw were not cooked. Bugs inside of candy shows little indication of whether it is cooked or not.

UN Says: Why Not Eat More Insects?

ArtemaOne Re:Parasites (626 comments)

You have to realize that most of the people who advocate eating bugs will do so raw. Yes, cooking the grasshopper will kill that giant worm thing that I've seen come out of their butt. I just don't see cooking them as the norm. And what temperature do they need to reach? We have that down for mammal meat.

I was thinking this sounded like a decent idea, but then remembered how many grasshoppers I've seen with parasites. I don't consider this worth the risk for me personally.
