Behind China's Great Firewall

Hankapobe Silver lining... (148 comments)

...these measures are put in place to protect children and other Internet users from illegal and offensive content.

This is an illustration of the slippery slope and we all should show this to anyone who wants to censor or regulate the internet for obscene material or to "protect the children".

As a matter of fact, here's a perfect illustration how the "think of the children" rhetoric can be and is used for oppression of a people.

Amputee Sprinter Wins Olympic Appeal to Compete

Hankapobe Re:How unfair... (366 comments)

If they think he has an unfair advantage, why don't they get their legs amputated, too?

If this guy takes home a gold and considering how competitive some folks are, it wouldn't surprise me if elite athletes start getting into "accidents" and having these put on them.

DARPA Celebrates 50 Years of Pushing the Envelope

Hankapobe I wish this one wasn't killed.... (83 comments)

FutureMap: This program hoped to use a kind of terrorism futures market to predict key developments and even attacks. It was thought market valuations of possible future events could reflect the probability of their occurring. However, FutureMap was scrapped in 2003 after the notion of betting on terrorist atrocities was called "ridiculous and grotesque" by US politicians.

I really wanted to see if it would work - grotesque or not. It intrigued me that a "market" could be formed for things that aren't being bought and sold. And I wanted to see if the market could predict things.
