FBI and States Vastly Expand DNA Collection, Databases

Krapangor Re:Presumed innocent?? (203 comments)

A person is INNOCENT until proven guilty, not the other way around.

I think you are a little bit confused about this. If a person committed a crime he is not innocent no matter if this was proven or not. Just because his innocence or non-innocence is not known, he doesn't become magically innocent. The same way a criminal does not magically change his state from innocent to non-innocent just because a judge read his verdict. This is why people are presumed innocent - to avoid hardship for the suspect who are indeed innocent. However, since fumbling in their mouth with a cotton swap can hardly account of "hardship" taking their DNA is a reasonable measure, in particular since it helps fighting crimes.

Secondly, exactly who is it who says (or can demonstrate) that cracking a Mac or Linux box is easier than a Windows box? My experience is exactly the opposite.

So you say. But I found that a sledgehammer works for cracking any system.

Krapangor Re:On Literal Bible reading (2345 comments)

You can indeed take the literal meaning as a fundamentalist. The gates of Jerusalem (don't know if other cities, too...) were closed during nighttime for obvious reasons. If a traveller wanted to enter the city, he had to pass trough a small door in the gate called "eye of the needle". You could get a camel through this door by making it kneel down and somehow crawl through this gate. I'm not sure how this worked exactly, as I'm no camel expert. But the key point is: the literal meaning of the statements says the ricks suckers can get into heaven, but it's fucking hard. Fundamentalists can and will agree to this.
