North Korea's High-Tech Counterfeit $100 Bills

Duhfus Re:Math Pedantry (528 comments)

Furthermore, how would you not riot over your government doing something like that to you?

That is a good question, and I think it really depends on how much you already have. If what you have is mostly worthless and you are on subsistence living, then such a devaluation makes no real impact. I suspect a large number of North Koreans might be in that situation. The only effect rioting will have might be getting you executed.

How Companies Learn Your Secrets

Duhfus Seems a bit like a made up story to me (354 comments)

I am not sure if the story is really true or not, but it stopped being believable when it said "the manager called again after a few days to apologize". Really? He remembers the person who had come in a few days earlier complaining about (targeted, yes, but still) mass-mailed coupons? And he calls them to apologize again?

It would be nice to see managers like that at the stores I shop at.

Tesla Roadster Breaks Distance Record For Electric Car

Duhfus Re:So what? (392 comments)

Though to be fair, that race course was a mixture of twists, turns and hills
So what? You say that like they SHOULDN'T be required to handle it. Who wants a car that can't handle turns or climb hills?

TFS is comparing the performance of Roadsters in different races. While this Roadster set a new record, the course that it set the record is sufficiently different from the course where the previous record was set. Hence the "to be fair" comment: the earlier course "was a mixture of twists, turns and hills", so you can't really compare the two records as an apple-to-apple comparison.
