As Prison Population Sinks, Jails Are a Steal

LduN Re:Prison population (407 comments)

it's because instead of throwing you in jail, they just take all your cash, pepperspray and beat you, then they send you on your merry way to the ER with multiple compound fractures.

NASA Eyes Crew Deep Sleep Option For Mars Mission

LduN Re:OK. (236 comments)

OR I just figured out a clever idea, that might piss of any aliens the encounter. Feed the astronauts beans, attach hoses to their butts nad use "natural gas" for thrust. In a perfect vacuum I'm sure farts do give some accelertion... think of it like an organic Ion engine

LduN not sexist (232 comments)

I'm not sexist or anything, but am I the only one that gets annoyed when people, in their strive to be as PC as possible, refer to a theoretical person by the female form as opposed to the male form? I mean it makes sense when talking about a field where it is women dominated, but how many women CIO's exist, compared to men?
