top Edward Snowden Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize
Oh please, you just sound like a retard who knows nothing outside of the US when making statements like that. And the focus on "race" is also a typical US thing. What about a female president or a gay one or even an atheist one?
Belgium has a gay prime minister who is the son of two Italian immigrants.
Germany has a female chancellor. Great Britain had a female prime minister decades ago. I can't count the number of countries that have atheist prime ministers/presidents.
There a dozens of other examples if you care to search for them. None of which make those leaders eligible for a Nobel Peace prize.
Yeah but the US president deserves a nobel peace prize just because he's black? What an achievement!
USA! USA! USA!

Hey, I'd love a TV / microwave combo! It would take up about the space of an old CRT, so it would be "compatible" with my old furniture!
Coming to think of it. A TV / mini-fridge combo would be awesome too.

top US Sentinel Drone Fooled Into Landing With GPS Spoofing
Yes, the problem is that you need to integrate this measured acceleration TWICE (once to get speed, second time to get location) and this is a ridiculously error prone (well the process of integrating in itself is simple enough, the problem lies in the accumulation of errors) in any kind of real world system.
