Plan Would Give Government Virtual Veto Over Internet Governance

Guy From V Virtual Veto? (63 comments)

Is this functionally the same as a meatspace veto? What about a holistic immersion filibuster via TRON-esqye deconstructing LASERs?

Is Storage Necessary For Renewable Energy?

Guy From V Re:Expert?? (442 comments)

This is taken from an article named Engineering.com...in my fantasy world this article would have some basis grounded in reality. I've learned the hard way that this isn't always the case, however.

Snowden Granted 3 More Years of Russian Residency

Guy From V Re:Meanwhile ... (266 comments)

The Bill of Rights makes clear distinction between a US citizen and "persons". The fact that terrorists all happen to be people (in theory at least) means that the restrictions that are imposed upon the federal government and the NSA by the Constitution in what it can and can't do in it's mandate concerning all people, not just citizens, means that just because they are evil bastards deserving of nothing but contempt and they themselves would like nothing more that to NOT be grouped in with their enemies...just as most of the rest of the "people" they victimize would like as well...it remains that the NSA's unlawful transgressions were committed upon the whole of humanity which is supposed to be shielded from the actions they secretly and illegally violated. The point I'm making being that just because the group they fucked over in violation of their ban happened to ALSO include terrorists should be a distant second afterthought of the revelation, in a perverse inversion of lawful and altruistic intentions of the document's letter and spirit (indeed more like our enemies' rationalization of their own actions) that they made no distinction between their charges and quarry. It really would have been difficult to reveal their vile actions when all persons they fucked over, bad guys or good, all require the use of common methods of communication whether they are evil murdering fucks or paragons of virtue who rescue kittens from trees. Or whatever and shit...

Gaza's Only Power Plant Knocked Offline

Guy From V Please Explain This Crap (868 comments)

Please, someone explain to me how seemingly rational and normal people who seem to have it all together and seemingly hold a good sum of beliefs that can be called measured and critical can demonize Israel for defending themselves...in an amazingly measured manner I must say...in a lion's den of homicidal and genocidal area of the world against a people who will accept nothing but their destruction (it's in their charter or something) when all these other dudes (who happen to be a designated terrorist organization) by NATO..I think, at least by the US)...and.... ...you know what, fuck it. People who complain about Israel and make martyrs out of HAMAS are truly fucking deluded or stupid.

"Magic Helmet" For F-35 Ready For Delivery

Guy From V Re:Bugs... (184 comments)

Lol, nice. Can it, at least, maybe use the EC to mask it's own signature it's putting out? That would be like covering up your own footsteps by yelling I guess, heh.

"Magic Helmet" For F-35 Ready For Delivery

Guy From V Re:Bugs... (184 comments)

It depends on what role they want the F-35 to play, I've seen that it was designed alternatively either as a fighter or multirole aircraft. As a swing-role or multirole craft this could easily dominate. As a fighter, that is harder to see for the very reasons you brought up...size, drag etc...but the stealth and electronic warfare packages, which I assume this helmet plays a major role in monitoring and interfacing, might be a trump card that overcomes it's deficiencies in air-to-air and air superiority combat.

UN Report Finds NSA Mass Surveillance Likely Violated Human Rights

Guy From V Re:Big Deal (261 comments)

The UN is far from a democratic organization, it's problems lie with the leverage the permanent Security Council has over it and the stagnated idea that it is still 1945. I admit that just complaining that it sucks at it's job isn't constructive and also that I have no better alternatives other than a reform of the power structure of it's leadership - but I think most everyone knows that will not happen, so I guess I'm done here.

UN Report Finds NSA Mass Surveillance Likely Violated Human Rights

Guy From V Re:Big Deal (261 comments)

If only citizens of countries that are models of competency are allowed an opinion on the UN's competency then we would have approximately zero valid opinions.

Radical Dual Tilting Blade Helicopter Design Targets Speeds of Over 270mph

Guy From V Don't Screw Up Again (103 comments)

If anyone remembers the last few years of development for the RAH-66 Comanche and how it had to be scrapped due to compartmentalized co-development of the different systems jacking up the cost to astronomical levels for one unit just from inefficiency. It was a great stealth escort weapons platform - shelved and set the US fixed wing aircraft scene back years. I hope this one can cut it in a modern battlespace scenario.

Smart Gun Maker Filed For 'Remote Kill Switch' Patent

Guy From V Guy From V writes  |  about 3 months ago

Guy From V (1453391) writes "Discovered by a reader over at TTAG. Though filed for in 2006, and received in 2008, the maker of the first marketable (therefore possibly mandatory by force of law) firearm with what is considered smart gun tech, this remote transmitting device patent patent from Armatix is exemplary of why many consider this technology an affront to the Bill of Rights and the 2nd Amendment."

Charles Carreon Finally Surrenders In Epic Legal Battle With The Oatmeal

Guy From V Guy From V writes  |  about a year ago

Guy From V (1453391) writes "Charles Carreon, zany lawyer and poster-child for the Streisand Effect (sorry Babs) for his lawsuit against The Oatmeal creator Mattew Innman last year in his original role as legal counsel for Funnyjunk, as reported by ArsTechnica, seems to have finally called it quits. In other news, the River Styx has reportedly dropped below 32 degrees Fahrenheit."
