Pentagon Reportedly Hushed Up Chemical Weapons Finds In Iraq

Elyjah Re:Absolute BS (376 comments)

The reason Bush and Cheney did not shout it out was that Republicans made them and sold them to bad guys.

Yeah, I remember hearing about that. Evidently most Republican offices on Capitol Hill had hidden chemical weapon factories in closets, and the Republican senators and representatives spent long hours personally manufacturing these weapons and having staffers sell them on street corners to anyone wearing a name tag which said "Bad Guy". The only way anyone found out was when visitors touring the Hill were affected by a leak of "Grey Poop-on-you" Mustard Gas emanating from the office of the ranking Republican.

I can't believe this news story was so quickly hushed by the current Democrat-led administration, considering their incredible record for transparency with the press. It's unlike them to hide things the way Bush and company did.

L.A. Science Teacher Suspended Over Student Science Fair Projects

Elyjah Another school shooting averted. (253 comments)

I approve of this decision. Someone finally thought of the children; just think how many lives were saved! Science is dangerous, and definitely has no place in our schools. Clearly, the children that built these have some severe mental problems, and all right-thinking people know their parents must be fat, conservative tea-baggers. The kind of violence exhibited by these devices cannot be tolerated. This is exactly why children should not be allowed to think for themselves in school; they are too unpredictable.

I'm glad we were able to stop these domestic terrorists before they killed anyone.

Senator Makes NASA Complete $350 Million Testing Tower That It Will Never Use

Elyjah It CANNOT be shut down... (342 comments)

...because then the senator would be accused of being anti-jobs and anti-science. You know, because he's a Republican and that's the way they all are.

Ask Slashdot: Teaching Chemistry To Home-Schooled Kids?

Elyjah Re:Saddened :( (701 comments)

If the parents that do this to their kids use the "schools aren't safe", "schools aren't teaching what I think they should be", or "schools are failing our children" excuses should *get involved* in their local school, and encourage all other parents to do the same. If their schools really are falling behind in some way, it's *THE PARENTS FAULT* for not being involved.

I don't buy it. I went through public school in one of the wealthiest counties in the US, and saw the problems first-hand. If I have a problem with the school system, it's way easier for me to pull my kid out and educate him/her at home, or at a private school, than leave him/her in the school that isn't properly educating. It is not my responsibility as a parent to fix the schools. My responsibility is to my children. If the school isn't providing the level of education I deem my children need, I'll go elsewhere and they can keep catering to the lowest common denominator. If you follow good curriculum, you can get at least the same level of education at home as you can in public school.

Dolphin, a 3rd Party Android Browser, Relayed URL Data

Elyjah "Fixes" the issue? (179 comments)

"They also rolled out a new version of the browser, 7.0.2, which fixed the issue."

The word "fix" makes it sound like it was an unintentional error. The problem wasn't that the browser "accidentally" sent the data. The problem was that the company thought this would be okay in the first place. The real "fix" needed is ridding the company of the people who thought this was a good idea.
