Physicists Call For Alien Messaging Protocol

Drekkahn Framework (279 comments)

I for one think the framework should be based on IBM MQ Series. If we could get the aliens to install on their end then we could easily send messages back and forth.

Chinese Stealth Fighter Jet May Use US Technology

Drekkahn Re:If true... (339 comments)

No. We all own cars and can afford to fly planes. Not much demand for a high speed rail. We kind of got over rail with the invention of flying and personal automobiles. Rails? Ha. That is so 1800's......

Stuxnet Still Out of Control At Iran Nuclear Sites

Drekkahn Re:The difference engineering makes (361 comments)

Well if you rely on technology that is invented and mastered by your enemies "The West" then you are vulnerable to these kinds of attacks.

Former Military Personnel Claim Aliens Are Monitoring Our Nukes

Drekkahn Re:This has happened many times since the late 60s (498 comments)

If I tell you I saw a UFO, then blame my physchology. If a radar and other eye witnesses see the same UFO then that would be outside verification...wouldnt it. If I see a guy who I know died come back to life, and other witnesses see it then that would be outside verification. Not all of the accounts in religion and in UFO's fit neatly into your phychology theory.

Mark Twain To Reveal All After 100 Year Wait

Drekkahn Re:Adding to the Speculation (298 comments)

"He had doubts about God ..." That would put him in with some very good company. Popes, Bishops, Nuns and Christ.....

SCO Asks Judge To Give Them the Unix Copyright

Drekkahn Re:sco still alive? (286 comments)

I would support the social causes if I thought government could fix them. Instead it often makes the problems worse and at best wastes a ton of money for little result. The American people are very generous and dont mind spending money to help people who are in need. At the state and community level they can do it more effectively. It just doesnt work having the federal government involved. In some cases it has the opposite affect and makes the problem worse.

ArenaNet's MMO Design Manifesto

Drekkahn Re:Yeah, but.... (178 comments)

The real problem is online MMO's do not model society. In society we know that allowing people to kill other people at will causes a break down in civilization. An MMO can allow people to kill each other, but there has to be away where the citizens can police their outlaws. One way is to allow a victim to tag the other player for a bounty, get enough bounty's and you can become an outlaw whom anyone can attack and whom anyone can collect a bounty on which would be some kind of sliding scale.(ie more money/incintive based on how much a murderer you are..) Outlaws would be their own faction and have their own towns. But they wouldnt have access to the best gear/tech that civilization has to offer because they are on the outside of society. They would have to scrape by until they redeem themselves. You could even have a new class who is able to track outlaws (like a hunter can track humanoids) and make money by killing them....

Anti-Cancer Agent Stops Metastasis In Its Tracks

Drekkahn Re:Side effects (269 comments)

What if there is no profit involved and only costs. Who would pay for the costs to provide the treatment. The pharma company? Perhaps. They are getting a benefit by being able to test on actual humans....

New Speed Cameras Catch You From Space

Drekkahn Re:Really? (351 comments)

It all boils down to this.... Democratic governments that already are taxing their citizens at near 50 percent have to find sneaky ways of taxing them without it being obvious to the denizens that they are paying more than half their labor in taxes.... This is just another way of doing this.

Neil Armstrong Criticizes Obama's Space Strategy

Drekkahn Re:Not after eight years of Bush (508 comments)

Dont know where in the USA you could be living, perhaps Arkansas but the rest of us have good running water and sewer systems. So we havnt fallen into the third world just yet. Most of our problems go back to the very first experiments in socialism that good ole FDR brought in. Including the bailouts we have done recently for the current economic downturn. But never fear. The true conservatives who value the constitution, small government, and freedom will right this ship again. We will be happy for you to come along with us to prosperity. We are Demoncratics and Republicans of every race and creed. When you have had enough of your socialist paradise just step aside. We are already working on the problem.

Neil Armstrong Criticizes Obama's Space Strategy

Drekkahn Re:I guess it depend on your priorites. (508 comments)

For the current President it will never be a priority. Spending money on space doesnt mesh with his agenda. Why would you spend money on space when there are millions of underpriveldge people who will vote for your social agenda whom you could just give the money to. We must spread the wealth in this country. Forget doing it by the tried and true method of capitalism. Lets try it through socialism. I mean forget that it never works and it just makes the poor, poorer, the middle class poorer and the rich more powerful because they are now party officials, who are running all our lives. Lets give it try anyways.

House Passes Massive Medical Insurance Bill, 219-212

Drekkahn Re:Unintended consequences? (2424 comments)

No you didnt. You just said you heard because you thought you would make a smart "show on the other foot comment". The entire premise of your post was to make up a scenario that was not true just so you could try and impress yourself with how clever you were. Why would anyone leave the US over this? Think about it. The Demoncrats just passed a Healthcare bill that was in direct opposition to the overwhelming majority of Americans? What do you think will become of that? Do you think that the people will just say "ah shucks" guess we will have to live with our elected officials going against our wishes? No. We are simply going to get rid of the lot. President. Gone. Congress Gone. This vote probably killed off the Democratic party as far as independants go. It will never recover. You cant go against your constituants, that brand will never leave the Demoncratic party...ever....
