Leaked Documents Reveal Behind-the-Scenes Ebola Vaccine Issues
Where did this off-topic verbal diarrhea come from? Who was talking about politicians? The topic here is ebola. WTF?
Assange: Google Is Not What It Seems
Of course, we know now that McCarthy did not engage in "witch hunts" at all. There really were communists in the State Department, and they really did mean to use their position to overthrow the government. Sorry to have to make you re-write your history like that, but inconvenient facts must be accepted. Or is that one of those nitpicky rules for the little people that never applies to ourselves?
Will the Google Car Turn Out To Be the Apple Newton of Automobiles?
Wow. Just...wow. Open bigotry and nazi-like denial of humanity of fellow humans...modded positively on Slashdot.
The mask is starting to come off now, isn't it?
Will Fiber-To-the-Home Create a New Digital Divide?
I love how you totally ignored the content of the article (and the author's rank ignorance...how are "education, healthcare, and other social goods into the home through immersive, innovative applications" going to be delivered...what the hell are they, even? What is this healthcare application that requires fiber otherwise it won't work?
Instead, it seems this was just another platform for a left-wing narrative to air itself out. America is bad, spreading despair, murdering hope, and hoping for the worst. How about some on-topic conversation? About these social goods that require fiber?
Ebola Does Not Require an "Ebola Czar," Nor Calling Up the National Guard
Nope, it was the CDC throwing the nurse under the bus. They didn't want to look incompetent, so they blamed the victim. Shocking and disgusting, but then again what do we in 2014 expect from our government? Competency?
32 Cities Want To Challenge Big Telecom, Build Their Own Gigabit Networks
Ever wonder why you take such ridiculous pleasure in being right? Maybe it's because it's such a rare occurrence.
Let that sink in for a while.
New Music Discovered In Donkey Kong For Arcade
Yes, but everyone has heard of Donkey Kong. Nobody has ever heard of that obscure title you just mentioned.
Google Fiber To Launch In Austin, Texas In December
Bicycling accomplishments are a better use of tax money than any road or sewer. It's important to show the rejection of cars and also publically show that a bicycle city can be done. If some hicks from the sticks don't get their police 'protection' then that's just tough shit.
How English Beat German As the Language of Science
Isn't it odd that no matter how much progress America makes, the Left is always ready with a cutting criticism? Even considering that up until recently, new immigrants were expected to assimilate into the existing society, instead of having exceptions made for them?
Go ahead and try that bullshit anywhere else in the world. How welcoming is Egypt to new people? Nigeria? China? Thailand? Oh, but America somehow fails to live up to an imaginary ideal that NOBODY IN THE WORLD does, so that's wrong and we should hate Americans for that.
Pentagon Unveils Plan For Military's Response To Climate Change
Did anyone actually read what's going on? Or are we just posting idiotic knee-jerk responses based on what we wish were going on? Why is this stupidity and lie not at -1 Offtopic?
Federal Government Removes 7 Americans From No-Fly List
Well, it was supposed to be used as a weapon against our enemies in time of war. Now that the threat is no longer around, the legislation needs to sunset and everything needs to go back to how it was.
Unfortunately, the federal government has a very bad record of giving up power once it's got it. It uses that power to gain more power, and so on. And we end up with a modern tyranny and scolding voices saying, "we're forcing you to do this for your own good".
Who's In Charge During the Ebola Crisis?
You know, the US Constitution was written explicitly to prevent tyranny. When you start bumping up against its limits and grouching that you need more power, and this damned document won't let you, this means you're on the wrong side.
When the editorial pages of the New York Times express admiration for tyrants abroad and your fundraisers openly state that the executive needs more power (what, being the President of the United States isn't enough power, WTF) then you have a problem and you need to go through and re-think your entire worldview, starting from base principles. Either that, or We The People need to introduce you dictatorial fuckheads to hemp rope and cottonwood trees.
First Man To Walk In Space Reveals How Mission Nearly Ended In Disaster
The SOVIETS, not the Russians. The Soviet Union conquered many different ethnic groups for their empire, and the Russians were only one of them.
I think a lot of people forget that Russia was just the first nation to fall to the Soviets. Just like Germany was the first nation to fall to the Nazis.
Pro-Democracy Websites In Hong Kong Targeted With and Serving Malware
Stop inventing imaginary scenarios. You're talking out your ass and have no idea what you're saying. While you weren't paying attention, the days of cheap labor in China ceased several years ago. The buzz these days is all about Vietnam and Burma. I say again, STOP inventing points of view from imaginary people you aren't familiar with, just because it fits your narrative.
Oxytocin Regulates Sociosexual Behavior In Female Mice
That's a common reaction to hearing viewpoints with which you disagree. Where's the "Science, bitches!" crowd now? Remember, science is always right and if it tells us we need to radically restructure our society and change cherished modes of thinking, then that's just what has to happen and anyone who disagrees is a denialist.
Microsoft Develops Analog Keyboard For Wearables, Solves Small Display Dilemma
Fun fact: most Chinese people use Pinyin input. Handwriting is used...but not usually. It's slower, while Pinyin is just faster. Or so I've been told when I've asked why people don't use handwriting input when they're clearly capable of it.
China Bans "Human Flesh Searching"
Bullshit! It is Japanese people who have trouble with the R/L sounds. Chinese can pronounce R just fine, while L might be a bit off but still understandable and definitely never confused for R.
Chinese can't pronounce TH, V, and short I because those sounds don't exist in their language.
How Spurious Wikipedia Edits Can Attach a Name To a Scandal, 35 Years On
Not true. Recently while clicking around I found myself watching a BBC report from 1982 about the Falklands War. Being the BBC, and considering the topic, I naturally expected their famous bias to show itself shortly. It didn't! The report was three minutes of facts. No bias, no narrative, no attempt to tie the report into an over-arching theme to influence society in a direction that BBC overlords considered "positive". Just the facts. I was stunned. So yes, things were better before.
NSA To Scientists: We Won't Tell You What We've Told You; That's Classified
A lot of Americans have this crazy idea that their government should serve them, not a bunch of angry foreigners who, honestly, will never be satisfied. There are always new grievances. Reflexively hating anything the Americans do is a way of life for a lot of people.
Former Department of Defense Chief Expects "30 Year War"
Wow, leftists really can't accept that Obama is just a horrible president, eh? Everything's got to be blamed on someone else. I suppose that makes sense, as the alternative - that you were lied to and Obama really is as bad as everyone says - is too horrifying to contemplate.
