Scientists Keep Rabbits Alive With Oxygen Microparticle Injections

MrMista_B Re:Beats current techniques (274 comments)

Hell, not to mention organ donation. If you have a severe enough head trauma such that the person is /undeniably/ dead, something like this could save a lot of organs, and by extension, a lot of other lives.

Ask Slashdot: What's Your Take On HTTPS Snooping?

MrMista_B Re:Perspectives (782 comments)

So why are you, personally, not in jail right now for illegal wiretapping?

Not trolling, I'm honestly curious how you're getting away with this without some sort of FBI investigation into the practice, and massive fines/imprisonments.

MrMista_B Re:Might use this for my own art (58 comments)

Iran's Smart Concrete Can Cope With Earthquakes and Bombs

MrMista_B Re:Today's dose of fearmongering... (609 comments)

The United States is a theocracy that /has/ nuclear weapons, and /regularly/ annihilates foreign countries. Iraq was destroyed on a whim, albeit without nukes.

See: The last fifty years of the United States engaging in constant, unending international warfare, against continually new enemies, without cause or justification.

Now who looks more dangerous?

Flaw In YouTube Takedown Process Exposed

MrMista_B It works just fine. (181 comments)

MrMista_B Re:why isn't thorium being developed? (299 comments)

Yeah, that sounds exactly like what the US did in the 1800's with their massive pirating of the European industrial revolution, stealing the designs, flaunting their massive patent and copyright violations, outright theft of designs and ideas, and massive intellectual dishonesty.

Gamification — Valid Term or Marketing-Speak?

MrMista_B Re:The Word is Bullshit (98 comments)

And by 'freaking', of course, you mean 'fucking'. There's no point to being so obsessively proper, so self-righteous, or so whatever it is you were trying to be that you should choose to switch out a swear word while telling someone to fucking swear.
