Amazon Seeks US Exemption To Test Delivery Drones

CosaNostra Pizza Inc Re:Visualing this? (155 comments)

I imagine they would have designated pick-up and drop-off facilities. Otherwise, someone is more likely to shoot them down during assent/descent.

Good point, and that would work. I assume drone-deliveries would not be door-to-door.

CosaNostra Pizza Inc okay but... (772 comments)

'Belief' in evolution does not indicate science literacy but most of the science literate acknowledge evolution as the cause for diversity in biological organisms, all having a common ancestor.

Ask Slashdot: Minimum Programming Competence In Order To Get a Job?

CosaNostra Pizza Inc I worked formerly as an EE (466 comments)

I'm a degreed EE and used to do board-level circuit design (I'm not talking about drafting). Then the jobs dried up so I decided to go back to school for a masters in computer science. I picked Java and learned it well. When I turned 40, I graduated and have had a good job as an application developer for 2 1/2 years. I'm good at it but am still playing some catch-up. I enjoy software development and for me, it was worth it.

Ignorance indeed. Funny that people automatically assume that Creationism and Science cannot coexist.

I'm a Creationist, and I am also a published author in Quantum Physics. Go chew on that for a bit...

"Sabotage". Get a clue.

Please show me a peer-reviewed paper and scientific mentod involving creationism

US Democrats Introduce Bill To Restore Net Neutrality

CosaNostra Pizza Inc Re:It's incredibly frustrating... (535 comments)

The fundamental problem is, Comcast wants to charge Netflix et. al. for carrying content on their network, simply because Netflix eats all their bandwidth.

No. technology innovation over time results in more bandwidth for less money. Netflix et al do not eat "all their bandwidth". However, Netflix, Amazon Prime, et al are competing services for Comcast's movies on demand and specifically, Streampix. The real fix is to prevent ISPs from also being content service providers.

Creationism In Texas Public Schools

CosaNostra Pizza Inc Re:Biology workbook (770 comments)

The King James Bible says the earth is a circular disc held up by pillars. There is water below and above the earth but the water above is separated by a dome called the firmament. The sun, moon and stars are decorations on the inside surface of the firmament. Basically, the Earth is a giant snowglobe. Some Christian fundies actually believe it.
