Isolated Tribes Die Shortly After We Meet Them

MRe_nl Re:Not just the isloated (351 comments)

The last chapter in any successful genocide is the one in which the oppressor can remove their hands and say, "My God, what are these people doing to themselves? They're killing each other. They're killing themselves while we watch them die."

Creating "Homo Minutus" — a Benchtop Human To Test Drugs

MRe_nl More info (49 comments)

A homunculus is shaped from a mixture of clay, ashes, mandrake root, spring water, and one pint of the creatorâ(TM)s own blood. The materials cost 50 gp. The creatureâ(TM)s master may assemble the body or hire someone else to do the job.
After the body is sculpted, it is animated through an extended magical ritual that requires a specially prepared laboratory or workroom, similar to an alchemistâ(TM)s laboratory and costing 500 gp to establish. If the creator is personally constructing the creatureâ(TM)s body, the building and ritual can be performed together.

Your Car Will Soon Sense If You're Tired Or Not Paying Attention

MRe_nl Bloodhound Gang (178 comments)

You got your Jesus on the dashboard
But the Devil's under my hood
You're takin' it down legal, I'm pullin' it up to no good
God is your copilot, I let Satan ride shotgun
You pay a toll to get to Heaven
But on the road to hell there's none

Get up you're asleep at the wheel
Get up you're asleep at the wheel
Get up you're asleep at the wheel
Get up you're asleep at the wheel
Get up you're asleep at the wheel
Get up you're asleep at the wheel
Get up you're asleep at the wheel
Get up you're asleep at the wheel

NASA-Funded Study Investigates Collapse of Industrial Civilization

MRe_nl The foundations (401 comments)

I foresee the imminent fall of the American Empire, which encompasses the entire world, and a dark age lasting 30 thousand years before a second great empire arises. I also foresee an alternative where the intermittent period will last only one thousand years. To ensure my vision of a second great empire comes to fruition, we should create two foundationsâ"small, secluded havens of all human knowledgeâ"at "opposite ends of the internet".

EFF Reports GHCQ and NSA Keeping Tabs On Wikileaks Visitors and Reporters

MRe_nl Re:You don't get it yet, do you? (82 comments)

Nobody is a terrorist. Terrorism is a tactic. It's like calling the Nazis "Blitzkriegers" or the WW II Americans "Island hoppers" (or "Nukers" if you will). States/Organizations/People use terror as a tool to reach their objective. Terror is not the objective. Using such a blanket term is, in my opinion, just a sign of intellectual laziness and will bring us no closer to solutions. It leads to a lack of understanding of the base motivation for conflict.

Stephen Hawking hospitalized

MRe_nl MRe_nl writes  |  more than 4 years ago

MRe_nl (306212) writes "Stephen Hawking hospitalized, reported very ill LONDON — Cambridge University says that famed mathematician Stephen Hawking has been rushed to a hospital and is very ill. The university said Hawking has been fighting a chest infection for several weeks, and on Monday he was taken to Addenbrooke's hospital in Cambridge, north of London. The 67-year-old Hawking gained renown for his work on black holes, and has remained active despite being stricken with motor neurone disease as a young man. For some years, Hawking has been almost entirely paralyzed, and he communicates through an electronic device activated by his fingers."
