Supreme Court To Decide Whether Rap Lyric Threats Are Free Speech

Issarlk Re:And this is how perverted our system has gotten (436 comments)

Freedom of speech doesn't mean speech without consequences. See: slander. How is that different? If the first amendment is absolute, then we should let people lie and destroy other's reputation at will.

Japanese Maglev Train Hits 500kph

Issarlk Re:Boarding issues (419 comments)

Without passenger trains, road traffic to and from Paris would grind to an halt, literally, frozen solid. I suppose people would commute walking to their 50 km away jobs, making train not necessary, not at all.

Australian Consumer Watchdog Takes Valve To Court

Issarlk Re:Wow (139 comments)

I'm in the exact same situation and hope that Australia shaft Steam deep and hard. I haven't spent a single euro on Steam since, but still got whatever game I was interested in legally and downloadable on Steam. Granted it was mostly indie games, and those always offer Steam code because Steam is admitedly freaking good, despite it's abysmal policies.

Experimental Drug Stops Ebola-like Infection

Issarlk Re:Here's What Bugs Me (53 comments)

It can be easilly put to the test. Among the next missionaries would catch ebola, 50% should refuse the ZMap treatment and get to be given an unique chance to show the world that god and prayer are what heal them. Surelly a true believer will be overjoyed by the idea, lots of people would be convinced and convert and be saved by our lord Jesus Christ.
