Study Finds US Is an Oligarchy, Not a Democracy
The US of A runs on The Golden Rule.
Compared to Megacorps Megabux Lobbying the average american has literally zero influence over policy.
Navy Debuts New Railgun That Launches Shells at Mach 7
It doesn't seem there would be any good defense against this.
The only conceptual defence against such a weapon would have to be some kind of force-field.
Especially when you consider this is a Generation One product.
Scaling the system up in terms of Projectile Speed, Cycle Times, etc would only be a matter of engineering.
Meat Makes Our Planet Thirsty
We just pour water into cattle and nothing wet ever comes out. Instead, all the water is converted directly into meat.
Seriously, bull (or cow) shit is not dry and dusty when it's fresh.
20 Freescale Semiconductor Employees On Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight
That sounds rather farfetched. Terrorists blowing up a Malaysian plane traveling to China because the US and/or Israel are killing Iranian scientists? Seriously? In case you haven't heard, China has been having a bit of a terrorism problem of its own lately, which makes a lot more sense.
Given the current political climate, I'd be more inclined to believe something along the lines of:
US Governmental Secret Agencies Destroy Malaysian Flight attempting to show that NOWHERE IN THE WORLD is safe from Terrorist Homosexual Paedophile Cannabis-users who hoard Files Released by Snowden.
Japanese Firm Proposes Microwave-Linked Solar Plant On the Moon
Whether it's specifically THIS project, or another.
Whether it's The Japanese or someone else.
The incentive to achieve this is too unavoidable.
Why? (I hear you ask)
Because the distinction between a targetable multi-terawatt laser and an eco-friendly solar-power downlink is mythical (legal, at best).
So Japan can bypass (simultaneously, no less) their own constitutional ban on militarisation AND the internal treaty against "space weapons".
NASA Now Accepting Applications From Companies That Want To Mine the Moon
Your link was the first thing through my mind.
And as a result you were rushed to hospital as a result of your injuries?

DEA Presentation Shows How Agency Hides Investigative Methods From Trial Review
In the end revolution occurs because, eventually, enough people completely lose faith in their government.
Unfortunately for most values of John Q US Citizen, nobody has the balls for it any more.
That doesn't mean there WILL NOT be a revolution
But rather that it's building up a MUCH bigger head of steam, and when it does eventually blow (most likely due to some kind of global disaster which impacts The US) it will be one appallingly unholy holocaust.
How Weather Influences Global Warming Opinions
The sad fact of the matter (irrespective of whether you're convinced for or against) is that the argument boils down to:
- Proponents argue that we should do a bunch of ecologically sound things because "for the good of the planet"
- Opponents argue that will cost large amounts of money
In the end, rampant greed puts us all in a world of hurt.
This is NOT a fight over science,
this is NOT a fight over modelling planetary weather/ecosystems/etc,
this IS a fight over "but I should be able to rake in literally trillions of dollars now, and FUCK THE CONSEQUENCES".
Are New Technologies Undermining the Laws of War?
The fact of the matter, people, is that any standing army which doesn't have an external "enemy" to wage war upon will inevitably turn against (or be used against) its own citizenry.
Multivitamin Researchers Say 'Case Is Closed' As Studies Find No Health Benefits
There is ample evidence that cyclophosphamide can cure cancer
You, sir, are AN IDIOT.
Cyclophosphamide doesn't CURE anything, period.
However it has been known to put a variety of diseases into remission.
For the record - I speak from personal experience.
Treatment with cyclophosphamide might increase your chances of living in the short-term , while increasing your risk of an early death in the future.
And here was I thinking that people on slashdot would know that (to date) the only thing that 'cures' you of cancer (and, I might add, a variety of other spectacularly nasty diseases) is death.

There is always a way around it, if you're not a lazy fucktard doing the programming.
Doing anything is EASY (if not actually trivial), doing it well/properly/thoroughly is HARD in the same sense as "NP Hard".
The problem is that almost everyone happy to "just do it" (as in the sense of only just barely) rather than "If a thing is worth doing, it's worth doing well".
While it's completely off topic, this is ONE of the reasons why Apple products are very popular. Because (not always, but in most cases) the things they do are done *very* well.
Tremors Mean Antarctic Volcanism May Be Heating Up
“It’s not something that’s going to cause major issues. You’d have to have a huge, huge eruption.”
Which leads me to say:
There was supposed to be an earth-shattering KABOOM!
International Space Station Infected With Malware Carried By Russian Astronauts
WHY DOES half the population of the world ruins shit and hold the other half back? (half being just an arbitrary number)
All numbers are arbitrary, not just the ones used in statistics.
Edward Snowden Leaks Could Help Paedophiles Escape Police, Says UK Government
There's no other way to say it - "won't somebody THINK OF THE CHILDREN" is the "Godwin's Law" of todays generation.
Extra points if you recognize the irony in screaming "think of the children" (ie the problem is that someone was THINKING OF CHILDREN far too much already).
Nebraska Scientists Refuse To Carry Out Climate Change-Denying Study

Azerbaijan Election Results Released Before Voting Had Even Started
You're all fools if you honestly believe that your elections are significantly more honest and trustworthy than theirs.
Some is better than none, right?
