Rise of the Warrior Cop: How America's Police Forces Became Militarized

Buelldozer Re:And it's only going to get worse (835 comments)

"They should consist of military veterans with experience, not pudgy county mounties playing soldier and killing innocents with their ignorance and inexperience."

They are one in the same now. Seriously, where do you think a lot of the Iraq and Afghanistan vets find employment when they get back?

That's right, LAW ENFORCEMENT.

UCSD Lecturer Releases Geotagging Application For "Dangerous Guns and Owners"

Buelldozer Re:1 2 3 4 I declare flame war (976 comments)

I get so tired of seeing this crap repeated as truism. The gun manufacturers don't "own the NRA". The NRA's 2.4 *MILLION* members do.

The reason further gun control has such trouble passing is that a majority of the people in our Republic don't _wan't_ it. Even Bloomberg and the millions upon millions he's spent can't sway public opinion enough.

If you were to combine all the members of every anti-gun group in the United States it still wouldn't be as high as the NRA, it's not even close.

Fun fact, you realize that Bloomberg spent more money trying to influence "gun control" in the United States last year than the entire gun lobby gave to the NRA?

Are you going to bitch him and his gun control agenda because he's spending millions and millions on it or is that cool because you happen to agree with his message?

UCSD Lecturer Releases Geotagging Application For "Dangerous Guns and Owners"

Buelldozer Re:1 2 3 4 I declare flame war (976 comments)

"Gun control at least tries to keep getting an angry guy to become a guy with a deadly assault rifle."

Less than 3% of all gun crimes, that includes suicides, are committed with an "assault rifle".

Way to tackle an almost non-existent problem! Such Courage!

Navy To Deploy Lasers On Ship In 2014

Buelldozer Re:An Infra-red laser? Why? (402 comments)

With an on-board nuclear reactor and being surrounded by a massive heatsink floating in water I'm not sure how big of a problem electricity and cooling will be.

Ask Slashdot: Rectifying Nerd Arrogance?

Buelldozer Re:I think that's all college students (823 comments)

Your "Go Big Red" comment was very confusing.

In the MidWest and Rocky Mountains "GBR" is almost exclusively referring to the Nebraska CornHusker's and their various sports teams.

I don't know if their use of GBR pre-dates Cornell's but you should be aware that it apparently has regional contexts.

Oh, and UNL has a kickass EE program.

The problem ain't weight, it's aeros. Despite its smaller size most motorcycles have far worse aeros than many cars.

White House Finalizes 54.5 MPG Fuel Efficiency Standard

Buelldozer Re:Air resistance. (1184 comments)

I was with you until you go to the transmission. Lock up torque convertors are nearly universal in automatic transmissions.

Since you don't know that simple detail I'm forced to wonder how much of the rest of your post is also ignorant.

Also the 90's Metro much touted for its high mileage was a HUGE, and stripped to the bone, pile of junk, something that its praise singers always forget.
