SpaceX Cargo Capsule Leaves Space Station For Home

Kryptonian Jor-El Re: 2 tons? (56 comments)

A pound is a unit of weight and can correspond to any kg mass, determined by the gravity of the place where it is being measured. Weight is dependent on gravity, mass is not. Welcome to 5th grade science class

FCC Orders Comcast To Stop Labeling Equipment Rental a Service Fee

Kryptonian Jor-El Re:A simple solution (97 comments)

Live Sports. The only reason I keep cable is to watch live sports. Until the pirates figure out a way to stream live sports in high quality, I'll be sticking to cable. Beyond that, I don't need it

Using Handheld Phone GPS While Driving Is Legal In California

Kryptonian Jor-El Re:Dumb ruling (142 comments)

So you suggest people stopping on the freeway and waiting until they can make changes to their device? How about we just make the driving test harder so not every shit driver can get one

YouTube Ordered To Remove "Illegal" Copyright Blocking Notices

Kryptonian Jor-El Re:Bullshit (427 comments)

GEMA doesn't file notices at all. The ContentID system does it all automatically. Problem is the ContentID system has no way of knowing if something is infringing or not.

YouTube Ordered To Remove "Illegal" Copyright Blocking Notices

Kryptonian Jor-El Re:Bullshit (427 comments)

What are you talking about? Nowhere does it say that the licenses have to be free. People could pay the license fee and upload to youtube. GEMA is, however, entirely responsible for claiming they own the music. In many cases, I bet they don't

Federal Judge Rules Chicago's Ban On Licensed Gun Dealers Unconstitutional

Kryptonian Jor-El hold it (934 comments)

Hold the phone here: The constitution says that we have the right to own and possess guns, yet makes no mention of the right to sell them. I'm actually 100% positive what Chicago did here was not illegal

Actually, yes, that is the case. Kids have no right to free speech, or any right to reasonable search and seizure of their property

No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service — and No Google Glass, Either

Exactly right. The guy had the right to wear his google glasses in a public place, and the people he was dining around had no expected right to privacy in said public place

A War Over Solar Power Is Raging Within the GOP

Kryptonian Jor-El Re:Fucking rednecks (1030 comments)

The problem with applying your conservative principles in this case is that the impacts from global warming will be upon us long before coal is no longer economically viable. Those making money from coal do not care about the consequences, since they're making big bucks while taking a small personal risk, whereas their profits have a negative impact on us all. If coal burning had no negative impact, I would agree, but since it does, it needs to be monitored and an alternative needs to be found

Its called abortion, but the Right don't like that either. Also, it sounds like you only want wealthy people to have children. Just another way the wealthy is keeping the poor down

U.S. Government: Sorry, We're Closed

Kryptonian Jor-El Re:The Blame Game (1532 comments)

No, the house of representatives represents the will of the gerrymanderers. Theres a reason why the senate and president are Democrat controlled, while the House is republican controlled. Heres a hint: The republicans redrew district lines to increase republican votes!

U.S. Government: Sorry, We're Closed

Kryptonian Jor-El Re:The Blame Game (1532 comments)

Bullshit

The Republicans are holding the budget hostage as a last resort to prevent a law that legally passed from taking hold (The Affordable HealthCare Act). They've been bitching and moaning for years about it, and now that its time for the majority of the law to go into effect, they decide that if they can't get their way (defunding the law) then NOBODY can have a budget
