Judge Rules Drug Maker Cannot Halt Sales of Alzheimer's Medicine

C0R1D4N Re: Can you say... (266 comments)

Is there a reason drugs are patented and not just kept trade secrets like the colonels secret recipe? Is it that easy to reverse engineer them?

For Some Would-Be Google Glass Buyers and Devs, Delays May Mean Giving Up

C0R1D4N Re: Early adopters (154 comments)

I have a gear one, I have to charge it only every other night. My only real beef with it is inability to really respond to skype messages/google voice without pulling my phone out.

The Downside to Low Gas Prices

C0R1D4N Re:Stupid, trucks cause the problem (554 comments)

It could also encourage us to reinvest a bit more in our freight rail system. It's stupid to send two hundred trucks of stuff from coast to coast when one train can carry an equal amount.

The Students Who Feel They Have the Right To Cheat

C0R1D4N Re:Ok... just turned two score, but... (438 comments)

That's the fault of the site I copy/pasted from (and probably the fact that I'm too young even for Bye Bye Birdie)

How To End Online Harassment

C0R1D4N Re: here we go (834 comments)

As a male try getting a job as a receptionist or bank teller. It's nearly impossible. These may not be the best jobs in the world but when you are trying to push yourself up out of minimum wage retail and hold a BA or Associates degree having a penis is strikes 1 2 and 3 against you.

I am not a straight white male (only two of the three).

Why can't they dance like we did
What's wrong with Sammy Caine?
What's the matter with kids today!

Marijuana Legalized In Oregon, Alaska, and Washington DC

C0R1D4N Re: Wonderful (588 comments)

It means it is no longer a violation of state law, only federal. The federal government can still enforce the laws without using local resources but they don't really want to spark a fight between state governments and the federal.

New Crash Test Dummies Reflect Rising American Bodyweight

C0R1D4N Re:What did you expect.. (144 comments)

It's because low paying jobs are very sedentary and people working two or three of them don't have the time to hit the gym or go out jogging like all those upper middle class moms with their land rovers.

Study: New Jersey e-Vote Experiment After Sandy a Disaster

C0R1D4N Re: Sandy was not a superstorm (77 comments)

Beat? Maybe not, but a libertarian/right leaning Democrat could have certainly put up a strong challenge. I worked on one's primary campaign (Carl Bergmanson) but the Democratic party cockblocked us at every turn. Refused to allow us to speak at county party meetings, fought (and won) to knock us off the ballot, they were determined to put Buono up for slaughter.

C0R1D4N Re: Sandy was not a superstorm (77 comments)

No he got reelected because the Democrats weren't interested in trying to oust him. The candidate they put up was a crony who demanded her turn at higher office and this was the only chance she would ever be allowed to run.

You're confusing Enlisted personnel for the entirety of the military. They hope for creatives to join the officer corps.

In UK, Internet Trolls Could Face Two Years In Jail

C0R1D4N Re: F the UK (489 comments)

The same could be said of the US and Russia not going against Hitler early. It can also be said that because the US didn't join the League of Nations it lacked the teeth to do anything against him. Seems silly to blame the UK and France alone.

US Navy Develops Robot Boat Swarm To Overwhelm Enemies

C0R1D4N Re:Or... Check this radical idea... (142 comments)

They want to stop another USS Cole incident, how about this radical idea. Put some frikkin armor on the ships. We went from 12in armor around the entire ship to 2.5in armor around vital spaces only. It's absurd. Our entire Navy is just one big expensive glass cannon (except without the cannon part, we got rid of those too).
