Marijuana Legalized In Oregon, Alaska, and Washington DC

JonWan Re:America is a RINO (588 comments)

Sure you can say fuck BOTH of them, I do it every election. I haven't voted for a democrat or republican for the last 15 or 20 years execpt for very local city / county elections. If there isn't a 3rd party running, that part of the ballot gets skipped. I don't care who is running as long as it's not a democrat or republican ( or those fake independants ) I'll mark them, I don't care who wins because they are both equally bad. I refuse to vote for the lesser of two evils anymore. The thing is, I make sure I vote! I can't wait to see a president elected with 20% of the popular vote, maybe that will get some attention. ( I might not live long enough. )

'Why Banana Skins Are Slippery' Wins IgNobel

JonWan Re:Dogs as compass (127 comments)

I wonder what would happen if you don't allow a dog to align north-south.

You will cause a rip in the space time continuum and destroy the universe.

Emails Show Feds Asking Florida Cops To Deceive Judges About Surveillance Tech

JonWan Re:Perjury? (251 comments)

"Isn't this kinda like....um.... perjury? I'm pretty sure that kind of thing isn't taken lightly by the judiciary. Furthermore, isn't it law enforcement meant to be role models for following the law?"

You know it's sad when this statement is modded funny instead of insightful.

I guess about all we can really do is laugh, at least until the general public wakes up.

Lego To Produce Three Box Sets Featuring Female Scientists

JonWan Re:Limited? (208 comments)

Because no one will buy them, well execpt for collectors. I sold "action figures" in my video store, we would buy them by the case and maybe there would be 1 or 2 female figures in a case. These were almost always already purchaced by collectors in advance of us recieving our orders. Boys never buy female action fighures, and girls rarely buy action figures Xena was an execption girls bought both the male and female figures. If we ever had an extra female figure it sat on the shelf until some collector noticed it. So it's not a female hating conspiracy, it's just business.

Pirate Bay To Offer Physical Item Downloads

JonWan Re:How would you register a downloaded car? (343 comments)

It's not really hard to do. Just keep all records of where the parts came from so they can make sure that they are not stolen. Pay your fee and they will issue you a number to stamp on the frame. Check with your local DMV because laws vary from state to state.

New Cable Designed To Deter Copper Thieves

JonWan Re:Theif soultions (668 comments)

AC and RF only run in the outside layer of a conductor. It's called the skin effect, if the copper clad is thick enough the conductivity will be the same as a solid wire as long as you don't run DC through it you will be OK.

Net Companies Consider the "Nuclear Option" To Combat SOPA

JonWan Re:Democracy in Action (507 comments)

Getting people involved would be nice but, Google buying one of the big 5 media companies and dump all content more than 14 years old into a CC license would be priceless.
