Valve's Economist Yanis Varoufakis Appointed Greece's Finance Minister

ItsJustAPseudonym Re: This doesn't sound... sound (327 comments)

There is no more tax to be collected.

About two years ago, I read that the main industry of the Greek oligarchs is "tax evasion". I doubt that has changed.
In any case, it will be good to have a fresh set of eyes on the issue.

Windows 10: Charms Bar Removed, No Start Screen For Desktops

ItsJustAPseudonym Re:Here it is! (376 comments)

Your sig: "To a coward, courage always looks like stupidity."

First of all, that's a cool sig. Second, what does it imply about us Slashdotters, when we mainly think Win 8 and Win 10 UI's are stupid?

NSA Prepares For Future Techno-Battles By Plotting Network Takedowns

ItsJustAPseudonym What did you EXPECT? (81 comments)

"...the NSA and its allies are laughing at the rest of the world."

Seriously, the two probable behaviors of voyeurs are either (1) laughter, or (2) heavy breathing.

Spanish Judge Cites Use of Secure Email As a Potential Terrorist Indicator

ItsJustAPseudonym Re:This is obviously correct (174 comments)

"In reality there no such thing as a (formal) proof. You cannot prove the simplest things."

And that condition is exacerbated when the evidence is withheld from scrutiny, as occurs when the prosecutor claims "state secrecy".

Spanish Judge Cites Use of Secure Email As a Potential Terrorist Indicator

ItsJustAPseudonym Re:This is obviously correct (174 comments)

Okay, using encryption affects the probability. But don't forget the whole "innocent until proven guilty" thing. I sincerely hope the case against them has demonstrable evidence, rather than claims of "we have real evidence, but we can't reveal it due to secrecy". I'm tired of that BS.

SpaceX Landing Attempt Video Released

ItsJustAPseudonym Re:Wait a minute (248 comments)

I'm imagining the Guidance Control Guy at SpaceX watching the hydraulic-fluid gauge with extreme trepidation, as the level sinks toward "E".

"Elon, I TOLD you we should have pulled over and bought more fluid at the last stop!"

Radio Shack Reported To Be Ready for Bankruptcy Filing

ItsJustAPseudonym Re:Radioshack doomed by inept management (314 comments)

Too much empty floorspace in many of the RS stores, too. They are paying for all of that square footage. (Or meterage, if you will.) It's got to be costing them a bundle.

Silicon Valley's Quest To Extend Life 'Well Beyond 120'

ItsJustAPseudonym Re:Emotional investment (273 comments)

Escape velocity, followed by horrible overpopulation. I'm concerned that we might have the technological means to solve the former, but not the political (or social) means to solve the latter.

Anonymous Declares War Over Charlie Hebdo Attack

ItsJustAPseudonym Re:Favorite Pastime for the Islamists (509 comments)

It doesn't matter if a culture that considers it better to burn a teacher alive than to let her instruct girls in reading and writing is wanting things to be like they were centuries ago, or if they simply want illiterate girls for the sake of keeping them illiterate. It doesn't matter. What matters is that they're acting to make it so.

In the near-term, you are probably correct.
In the long-term, those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Finding Genghis Khan's Tomb From Space

ItsJustAPseudonym Re:History Channel (166 comments)

Remember when SyFy had that "Exposure" series? They showed short films in the science fiction genre. There were some VERY COOL films. I was sad when then cancelled it.

FBI Says Search Warrants Not Needed To Use "Stingrays" In Public Places

ItsJustAPseudonym Re:Out 'em: SnoopSnitch + Google maps (303 comments)

Actually, reverse 1 and 2.

P.S. Thanks for the link. SnoopSnitch seems pretty cool. I'm just trying to point out that the "Gov-hats" could compromise it.

Census figures show divorce-rates, by U.S. state

ItsJustAPseudonym ItsJustAPseudonym writes  |  more than 5 years ago

ItsJustAPseudonym writes "Yahoo reports that the U.S. census has provided a list of divorce rates for 2008. This list is broken-down state-by-state.

And the big winner is: Nevada, with 14.2 percent! No surprise there, given the whole instantaneous-wedding-in-Vegas phenomenon.

On the other end of the spectrum is North Dakota, with 8.1 percent. Maybe people in North Dakota have to stay together for warmth?"
