Imrik Re:Why single out Australia? (83 comments)

'Revolving Door' Spins Between AT&T, Government

Imrik Re:sometimes regrettable, somewhat necessary (61 comments)

On the other hand, that experience also makes it easier to screw over the taxpayers. I can't think of any good reason why a company would think it more important to look out for taxpayers than to look out for their own bottom line.

Your argument works much better going the other direction, but you don't see a whole lot of people going from high level private sector jobs to the public sector.

Monochromatic Light As a Species-selective Insecticide

Imrik Re:WRONG! (44 comments)

For growers that could be a problem, but for distributors you wouldn't need as strong a light as it would be for the sole purpose of killing bugs.

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

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.

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?

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.
