Solar System's Water Is Older Than the Sun

Kuroji Of course it does. (173 comments)

For anything in the solar system to be YOUNGER than the sun, it would have to be MADE by the sun, or as a byproduct of the sun achieving fusion. Our planet is younger than the sun itself, but the elements that comprise it are much, much older.

Toxic Algae Threatens Florida's Gulf Coast

Kuroji Re:So... (99 comments)

Fertilizer is among its many byproducts, but raw petroleum is not going to work as fertilizer and requires quite a bit of processing in order to split into the products that we use today.

This has been an ongoing problem, periodically, if you'll recall. And the use of fertilizers is only increasing. The oil spill didn't contribute, it's causing its own problems but this is not one of them.

Toxic Algae Threatens Florida's Gulf Coast

Kuroji Re:So... (99 comments)

Unlikely. Fertilizer runoff from farms being dumped in a body of water will help algae growth, that's a very large part of what happened in Ohio, because apparently farmers in Ohio are fucking retards who think dumping manure on fields that are FROZEN OVER is a good idea and that it won't just all wash out into the lake there.

Petroleum isn't going to have the same effect by a long shot. There is no algae that eats oil.

Enthusiast Opts For $2200 Laser Eye Surgery To Enhance Oculus Rift Experience

Kuroji Re:Seriously? (109 comments)

I've merely pointed out that there is nothing that is absolutely without risk. The approach that one should take is properly measuring those risks, then deciding. Not trying to stir up fear.

Kuroji Re:Seriously? (109 comments)

You want risk free? Lock yourself in a padded room and make sure to eat nothing but what you get through a feeding tube to make sure you don't choke.

Ask Slashdot: IT Personnel As Ostriches?

Kuroji Re:Don't look for logic (246 comments)

Local user, you twit. It doesn't mean 'loser'.

The fact that the end users tend to look at IT as utterly useless except when something goes wrong, in which case it should have been fixed and prevented from going wrong even when it was the end user's fault, does however tend to promote such an attitude. But the IT guys would have to be idiots to use that term openly.

The Department of Homeland Security Needs Its Own Edward Snowden

Kuroji For all we know, there's been a few. (190 comments)

Likely they were discovered earlier than Snowden and became the subject of an extrajudicial execution, much as some have clamored to have done to Snowden.

"Internet's Own Boy" Briefly Knocked Off YouTube With Bogus DMCA Claim

More importantly, if they're outside the US, why does the DMCA apply to them?!

DC Entertainment Won't Allow Superman Logo On Murdered Child's Memorial Statue

Kuroji Re:Superman (249 comments)

Well, of course he did. He used them to part the red sea! Just, zzzap!, and now there's a huge hole big enough for everyone to run to the other side through!

Was Turing Test Legitimately Beaten, Or Just Cleverly Tricked?

Kuroji Re:but that's the problem with the turing test... (309 comments)

The Turing test was not conceived with text messaging in mind. Or the machine intelligence being on par with a thirteen year old with ADD from a distant land that knows nothing of ongoing current events and is terrible at the language because it is not their native tongue.

Turing Test Passed

Kuroji Re:Turing Test Failed (432 comments)

David Copperfield doesn't try to tell me that I just don't understand his act because it's something he picked up overseas while he clumsily goes through it with obvious stunt doubles.

Penn and Teller don't try to convince me that I shouldn't be wearing my glasses when I watch them on stage and that I just don't "get it" and that I should believe they really are wizards.

Your reasoning is flawed, and this test was fundamentally flawed.

Protecting Our Brains From Datamining

Kuroji Re:That's the second most scary part. (100 comments)

You'd get a Nobel prize for medicine.

You really do not understand how complex the human brain is, do you?

Congressman Introduces Bill To Limit FCC Powers

Kuroji Does anyone actually believe this? (176 comments)

The congresscritters are owned by lobbyists at this point, without question. Lock, stock, and barrel.

Even if things don't go the way they want, they'll just keep introducing legislation to try and get what their masters want. CISPA is the most blatant example of this.

The Physics of Hot Pockets

Kuroji Re:Seriously. (222 comments)

Really? Have your shoes not been staying tied when you tie them? Have they been constantly catching on anything you walk past since you were able to tie them yourself?

No?

Then maybe everyone should stop praising this talk as the goddamn second coming.

Canadian Teen Arrested For Calling In 30+ Swattings, Bomb Threats

I thought it was because when you hit thirty or so you're going to find that your joints are going to protest all those push-ups in basic in a big way.
