Ask Slashdot: What Are the Most Dangerous Lines of Scientific Inquiry?

Gerafix Re:Artificial Wombs and eggs cloned from adult cel (456 comments)

Yes, really. If need be you could grow an organ complex, a bunch of different organs all growing in tandem in an artificial womb like setting. Since you know... if you can already grow things in an artificial womb...

Ask Slashdot: What Are the Most Dangerous Lines of Scientific Inquiry?

Gerafix Re:that's entirely the wrong perspective (456 comments)

To be honest I think you're extremely overestimating (to the point of ridiculousness) the effectiveness of "screeners" and the TSA and the rest of that bureaucracy.

Gerafix Re:Artificial Wombs and eggs cloned from adult cel (456 comments)

Your scenario is ridiculous. If you have sufficiently advanced technology to do that it would simply be easier to grow the organs themselves.

TSA Defends Pat Down of 4-Year-Old Girl

Gerafix Re:Of course. (1174 comments)

Sorry but this is bullshit. If terrorists started bombing large queues in airports you don't think people would become rather... terrorized at the aspect of standing in large queues? I guarantee you that people stand in large queues much more often and in many more places than they do just at airports. When you're afraid of just standing in a long line anywhere that's a much stronger impact than "Oh... if I simply don't take airplanes I'm safe."

Ph.D Webcomic Gets Adapted Into Feature Film

Gerafix Re:Not looking forward to this (126 comments)

Wait, wait, wait a second! So you're saying that the actors are just acting like actors, they're not real actors? How can you tell an actor is real and is not just acting like an actor, anyway? What if someone is so good at acting that you can't tell they are an actor, likewise what if someone is so bad at acting you think they are just acting like they're not a real actor when in fact they are an actor after all.

Japanese Scientist Creates Meat Substitute From Sewage

Gerafix Re:2 points to ponder (417 comments)

Humans eating recycled human waste is a hell of a lot different than humans eating human meat.

US Scraps Virtual Fence Along Mexican Border

Gerafix Re:How about a good 'ole fashioned REAL system? (437 comments)

Because it would be retarded, even by American standards. Any military force that would represent a threat at all would make a fence seem like using a tissue to stop a bullet. Likewise any force that would find a fence difficult to surpass would be much more efficiently taken care of by sending a squadron or whatever.

US Scraps Virtual Fence Along Mexican Border

Gerafix Re:The Virtual Fence was always a dumb idea (437 comments)

Err no, it's about giving lots and lots and lots of money to giant corporations so those said corporations will hire the people who secured them said money.

US Scraps Virtual Fence Along Mexican Border

Gerafix Re:Why, oh why.. (437 comments)

But you are getting value for your money! See there's this thing called trickle down economics, so the more money Boeing is paid to do projects like these the more money you'll end up with!

Pirate Party's North American Debut

Gerafix Re:Adopting Pejoratives is a time honored traditio (178 comments)

Who's culture and law? As far as I'm aware downloading music for personal use in Canada is perfectly legal and extremely popular in certain age groups. Those certain age groups by the way are going to be the ones running the country soon enough.

US Launches Largest Spy Satellite Ever

Gerafix Re:5900 lbs into orbit (213 comments)

Oh come on, surely you mean a 1960 Corvette! Which you would then reenter the atmosphere playing Radar Rider by Riggs.

Prepare To Be Watched While You Watch a Movie

Gerafix Re:even more reason to wait for the dvd (433 comments)

I know exactly what you're saying. I don't even have to leave my mum's basement either to get cinema quality audio and visuals.

Is the ISS Really Worth $100 Billion?

Gerafix Hypocrisy. (503 comments)

Hypocrisy is rampant upon the people complaining in here. Especially if they're Americans. Really $100 billion over ten years? That comes out to about what $35 bucks a YEAR for each American? Most Americans spend more on McDonald's each WEEK feeding their rotund meatbags. What's with all the anti-science hate in America? Oh that's right... America is the most religious (read: ignorant) country in the world. Well, besides Turkey.

FarmVille Now Worth More Than EA

Gerafix Re:Social games (344 comments)

A good game should mimic a drug. That's how they become popular and make lots of money. Don't think every single corporation wants their games to sell like hotcakes or should I say drugs.

The First Photograph of a Human

Gerafix Re:not a busy street (138 comments)

How many long exposure photographs have you took? That's not how it works. Well in one scenario you'd be correct but people would have to be packed onto that street like sardines.
