Peru Indignant After Greenpeace Damages Ancient Nazca Site

Lotana Re:What the hell is wrong with Millennials?! (465 comments)

I am part of this generation. I have no answers to your questions. All I can do is feel ashamed and speculate.

My guess is that my generation is spoiled rotten. We never had any challenges or widespread hardships compared to the generations prior. Baby boomers dealt with Cold War. The Greatest Generation before them fought in World War 2. We got everything delivered to us on a silver platter, so we never learned to appreciate it or even learnt concepts of respect.

What the activists did in Peru is discusting beyond words. All I can do is hope that they are a horrible exception and that (Degenerate though as we are) the rest of this generation are not as bad as them.

Indeed.

A pity how poorly he was treated after the war's end by the very country he fought so hard to protect!

Scientists Optimistic About Getting a Mammoth Genome Complete Enough To Clone

Lotana Re:obligatory Jurassic Park quote: (187 comments)

Dear Dr Ian Malcom,

Could you please shut the fuck up already with your constant, preachy whining?! We are all sad that the T-Rex couldn't do his job properly and rid us of your hollier-than-thou attitude when it had the chance!

Regards,

Readers of Jurasic Park book

Debunking a Viral Internet Post About Breastfeeding Racism

Lotana Re:Astonishing grasp of the obvious (350 comments)

Why not just put that ring on a chain and wear it around your neck like a necklace? This is what my electrician friend does.

I'm most interested in robots that will...

Lotana Re:Pleasure (307 comments)

I dunno, maybe that makes me weird or something...

No. The opposite: It means that you are a normal, average human being. Sex is exciting for the reaction of the partner. Without this expression of desire and enjoyment, sex is just routine, empty and boring physical procedure.

Sex robots are a fantasy and nothing more. Just like threesomes: Probably every single man has that fantasy, but in practice it is rarely done and awkward.

I expect to be conventionally alive ...

Lotana Re:Dying is for sissies (187 comments)

Backup plan is to freeze my head, and wait for the technology to restore me from cold storage, even if they have to scan my frozen brain synapse by synapse or even closer than that.

Won't work because in the future noone will give a shit about you to go through the (Probably expensive) procedure to revive you.

I invite you all to help in building this afterlife.

Meh. That will take too much time, too stressful and considering you will need to convince the rest of the world: impossible.

Besides, why do I want to be old longer? My choice is to enjoy the time I have of my existance with my loved ones and die at about 75. Thats a good age to go before the really terrible age-related decline really hits.

Ask Slashdot: Minimizing Oil and Gas Dependency In a Central European City?

Lotana Re:audience (250 comments)

Because Slashdot wants to encourage its users to log in.

Why? Because (Among other things) it makes having actual conversation easier, when you are confident that you are talking to the same person and not constantly changing anonymous person.

Scotland Builds Power Farms of the Future Under the Sea

Lotana Re:Underwater will face the same challenges as Tid (216 comments)

That is quite a unique and novel idea. And it just might be crazy enough to work.

Of the top of my head, I would be worried about the surface of the bubble to remain flexible in such tempeture and all the crap in the water. It also must be quite strong to withstand the pressure/pucture issues. Also the motion would be quite chaotic, so it may not be easy to make it do useful work.

Largest Sunspot In a Quarter Century Spews Flares

Lotana Re:16 posts containing banal "jokes", 0 of any val (46 comments)

What is there to discuss?

This is yet another sensetionalist blurb article: Oh no! A large sunspot! Communication might be affected!!! Once you discuss one of these useless stories, there is nothing left to discuss.

Yes, there is a sunspot. They occur all the time. So what?

Lava Flow In Hawaii Gains Speed, Triggers Methane Explosions

Lotana Re:My wife was out there the other night (64 comments)

She was the first to smell a sudden burst of methane

Not to doubt your story, but how did she smell the methane? Methane is an odorless gas. This is why additional additives are included in the household gas for safety.

Lava Flow In Hawaii Gains Speed, Triggers Methane Explosions

Lotana Re:needs rebranding (64 comments)

Iceland is also cold. Contrast it with tropical Hawaii full of sunbathing eye candy :-)

Also, although "Kilauea" is hard to say, I don't even know how to read "BÃrÃarbunga". How do you pronounce the 'Ã' character?

Jedi-ism Becomes a Serious Religion

Lotana Re:Spiritual Needs (268 comments)

Well, here is a good example: Mathematical axioms.

Axioms are supposed to be believed because they are the fundamental properties. You don't prove them.

As an example: Do you believe that prallel lines never intersect?

All of the ones that you choose. Or don't choose. Or can't be bothered to think about. Or none at all.

Whatever the case may be, it is either a myth or just plain disturbing...
