Is Traffic Congestion Growing Three Times As Fast As Economy?
Why has Government spending as a % of GDP taken a nosedive?
Might want to check those talking points, they appear to be about four years out of date.
The Higgs Boson Re-Explained By the Mick Jagger of Physics
I'm not sure either. I suppose it might be because he can't get no satisfaction. Or perhaps he is a man of wealth and taste. Maybe he wants it painted black. Or all of the above.
Are Bankers Paid Too Much? Are Technology CEOs?
Steve... Steve.... The name rings a bell. Wasn't he the guy who earned one dollar a year? What a fantastic counter example you have found. Clearly more companies need to follow this philosophy.
Facebook Analyzes the Impact of Love On Their Business
Post volume seemed to be the same last week as it was the week before and this week thus far.
There was significantly less bitching about beta.
I still recommend alterslash.org for all your slashdot skimming needs.
Can Electric Current Make People Better At Math?
Wrong approach. You need to get your car's engine to throw monkey wrenches. Reverse the polarity of the monkey wrench beam, if you will.

Remember when you trusted Microsoft? (I kid, I kid (perhaps))
Being worthy of trust in the recent past does not grant anyone a blank check for current or future actions.
NASA Now Accepting Applications From Companies That Want To Mine the Moon
They will not harm the whales. Only the petunias.
Layoffs At Now-Private Dell May Hit Over 15,000 Staffers
Dude. We don't read TFA, what makes you think we read the summary? Even if we do, we are only looking for misspellings, grammar errors, or somesuch.
Pffft. Content. Who comes to /. for content?

Midwestern Fault Zones Are Still Alive
The "all" in this case is describing the extent of "fault", not the extent of "y'all". The test is if we replace "y'all" with some other noun. "It's all Fred's fault." Clearly we are not referring to some multitude of individuals as "all Fred", rather we are assigning all the fault to Fred.
Similarly, it is not too much to expect that appending an apostrophe and "s" could create a possessive form of "y'all".
Finally, there is the "you" (for second person singular), "y'all" (for second person plural), and "all y'all" (for second person collective). I suppose if the GP really wanted to yank your chain, the post could have been written "It's all all y'all's fault." I agree that would sound odd.

Mars One Selects Second Round Candidate Astronauts
You know, it occurs to me that we have had the technology to send a one-way mission since about 1998. Though it would be more mass-efficient to just shoot the astronauts on the launch pad. Think of all the savings on food, water, air, and radiation shielding.
U.S. Mobile Internet Traffic Nearly Doubled This Year
No no no. That doesn't result in more bits. Each bit is twice as wide. Pretty clever when you think about it.
India Cautions Users On Risks Associated With Virtual Currencies
Personally, I don't want a currency with intrinsic value. I want it to have value as a currency only. I do not want the price of my cheeseburger be directly affected by the amount of yellowish (and inedible) metal some guy managed to dig out of the ground this year.
