Mr_Nitro we doing it all wrong... (83 comments)

with a place like saudi arabia and all the bloody religious fanatic countries the ONLY thing we should export are BOOKS...books and fucking books again. And THEN after everyone damn reads them all and LEARN and understands how things works in a civilized world , we start to talk some actual business.... we are empowering states that if could have their way would bring humanity back to 1000AD... we are doing it thinking that we'll always have the upper hand....but if our side of the gear glitches.. I'lll be glad to see the heads of the military and politicians who enoforced these collaborations roll in the dust....

Ninety-Nine Percent of the Ocean's Plastic Is Missing

Mr_Nitro what I really find disguisting... (304 comments)

is that less than 100 years ago oceans were absolutely pristine... and now we know the dangers of our actions and yet the legislators and politics which should be our public servants and represent the global voice of the people are ignoring the situation and taking only weak and localized actions. Where are we heading? Waiting for a random natural bacterial mutation to solve all our problems? Is it still a matter of 'faith' with humans? 'Someone' / ' something' will take care of it... We should change radically remove all our current ruling class and do the best we can with our only Planet, cease this totally insane tribal 'economy' driven society and do only what's best to live in a balance with the environment. We are little men that can only build a fleet of massive solar powered cleaning boats if someone move some paper and numbers in a computer to allocate 'xxx' billions in some bank account. This is so insane.....

Half of Germany's Power Supplied By Solar, Briefly

Mr_Nitro so.... (461 comments)

What is all this bullshit nitpicking crap I read? You are trying to say that the whole MF Sun is not enough to power this filthy planet-landfill of ours if we really WANT to? PV is not the best solution anyway, solar thermodynamic (Nevada Solar One , or Andasol alike) is easiest and less process intensive to manufacture.... Price is nothing, price is a value that we give to some piece of shit table game paper bills... we just need to DO the best thing....

AT&T Charges $750 For One Minute of International Data Roaming

Mr_Nitro Re:This (321 comments)

in a closed system like our planet there should be limitations, no more 'unlimited growth' 'unlimited profit' and so on.... companies size should be capped to a certain max size both as employees number and capital. And most importantly the richest manager/owner etc should not earn more than say 20-50 times the lowest wage, End of story...

Oklahoma Botched an Execution With Untested Lethal Injection Drugs

Mr_Nitro wow2 (1198 comments)

this thread spawn the best and brightest slashdotters indeed...... exactly when a military 'on duty' stops being a murderer in the eyes of victim's family members ? why is that alright? We totally condone murderers in so many situations, I say that the sole judge of the extent of the punishment should be the victim's closest family alone whenever it's possible.... Personally I would favor an incarceration only system.... death penalty is just some dark ages religious shit we should overcome asap....

13th Century Multiverse Theory Unearthed

Mr_Nitro bah (59 comments)

it is a relatively weak news but nonetheless it's sad to see how people cannot accept the fact that a lot if not all the greatest scientists, inventors and innovators had a rather mystical and deeply philosophical side in their lives... that side to side to rigorous mathematical papers there were much more 'unscientific' studies... it's the human attraction for what is hidden and mysterious that always lives in the minds of explorers and scientists are first and foremost explorers.... we are creating a simplistic view of science through washed out propaganda and childish mottos.... sometimes so-called geeks should read more carefully the biographies of the giants on whom shoulders they stand...

Asteroid Impacts Bigger Risk Than Thought

Mr_Nitro hmmm really.... (172 comments)

the whole solar system is covered with asteroid collisions..... shouldn't take a damn genius to get it's a real possibility to be hit by something a little too big to go unnoticed.... and the best solution ,as dear C.Sagan said, is to become a spacefaring race...the sooner we move our asses to mars (and beyond) the better.... it's our duty as a specie to at least colonize the solar system.... ...when they will stop laughing about it...

Vaccine-Autism connection - Lawyer:'' Coming dozens of complaints''

Mr_Nitro Mr_Nitro writes  |  about 4 months ago

Mr_Nitro (1174707) writes "Italy — The lawyer Luca Ventaloro, an expert in child health law states: "Given the amount of the civil cases, it was inevitable that criminal justice was aware of this potential correlation between the vaccine and autism or other disorders, has now become a national emergency. We have a case of autism in 80 births in healthy children. Born with an high APGAR (newborns viability index) and after vaccinations begin to feel bad. They can no longer deny the evidence.'' They seem pretty strong footed on the connection, commission is all completely made of doctors and experts in the field. Not an excuse for irrational vaccines fears , but an occasion to improve and acknowledge the possible dangers."

Slashdot moderation does more damage than benefit

Mr_Nitro Mr_Nitro writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Mr_Nitro writes "Hi all. Since the introduction of the so called moderation system, I think it does nothing but prevent some _real_ insightful comments from being seen unless you adopt a 'show all' policy. Often I found comments rated in milliseconds, is this realistic? or just some kid (rnd) clicking? For me it's just a waste of resources really. Would Slashdot editors consider a vote for it? What do you think? (that's obvious, all the pro-mod will mod down other opinions, a little bit twisted isn't it). best regards mrn"
