Imrik Re:I got a better idea... (554 comments)

So they pay roughly a quarter of the total taxes and earn roughly half of the total income... I think they're underpaying.

The Woman Who Should Have Been the First Female Astronaut

Imrik Re:All about perception (200 comments)

Where do you see racism in his post? All I see is an accurate analysis of the racism that was shown by people in the past.

The Woman Who Should Have Been the First Female Astronaut

Imrik Re:Eh (200 comments)

Isn't the lesson to use the best people regardless of gender? In which case, why should she go instead of someone more qualified?

Imrik Re:Criminals who carry tracking devices... (114 comments)

It only works as an alibi if you can force them to admit that they know where your phone was and that it was at home.

Imrik Re:anonymously sourced evidence? (114 comments)

The question isn't whether they are able to, it's whether they actually will.

Conservative Groups Accuse FCC of Helping Net Neutrality Advocates File Comments

Imrik Re:Math is hard? (283 comments)

It isn't a return rate, it's cause and effect. They got 814,000 people to sign up to have them send 3 messages for each person, one to each congressman representing them.

3 Short Walking Breaks Can Reverse Harm From 3 Hours of Sitting

Imrik Re:Standing Desks? (176 comments)

The suggestion was desks that converted between states easily. Around here the best I get is a desk that's not quite tall enough to stand at comfortably and a chair that's too tall to sit in comfortably. Taken together, it's roughly equally comfortable standing or sitting.

3 Short Walking Breaks Can Reverse Harm From 3 Hours of Sitting

Imrik Re:What's "Easy" About This? (176 comments)

Why would you want to work somewhere else when you can get paid for just sitting around? If you're worried about the company going out of business, there's not much difference between looking for a new job now and looking for one later.

Mysterious, Phony Cell Towers Found Throughout US

Imrik Re:sensationalism, ahoy (237 comments)

As long as they don't feel the need to respond that is. Unless that sort of approach becomes common it's almost trivial to figure out who's talking to whom.

Imrik Re:Privacy (455 comments)

Unless you mount it on a hat or helmet the camera should be looking at the wall anyway.

Should police have cameras recording their work at all times?

Imrik Re:"Accidentally" (455 comments)

In cases A and B the recording would support the officer's story. Case C is a reasonable explanation for why it stopped working, but not for why it started working again. In all cases the recording that would have happened should be assumed to be detrimental to the officer.

Imrik Re:"Accidentally" (455 comments)

If you are required to have recordings of your activities and those recordings aren't available, they may be assumed to be in favor of the person not responsible for the recordings. In this case, that would be whoever the officer is interacting with.

Imrik Re:"Accidentally" (455 comments)

That's already how the police in the area here handle audio recordings. That isn't to say that there aren't problems with the system, a request for a recording may end up being stalled long enough for the automated deletion to remove the recording before it gets flagged.

Imrik Re:"Accidentally" (455 comments)

Let them turn it off whenever they want, but if the camera is off and something happens, the officer may be assumed to be lying about events.
