I get better gas mileage when I'm driving South because it's downhill.

There's a real reason for it, albeit a small reason.

Who the hell comes up with "You know, we should see how well using urine works for making a fuel cell."

Goodbye, Ctrl-S

OhSoLaMeow Re:Bah, we already said goodbye to CTRL-S years ag (521 comments)

If your terminal window is connected to a Unix-like system, this would be true. The TTY sub-system scans each character typed and if the flow control characters are found, output is paused/resumed. (depending upon your stty/termio settings, of course; IXOFF must be enabled. If IXANY is also enabled, then any character will resume data flow.)

The Deat of Slashdot

OhSoLaMeow OhSoLaMeow writes  |  about a year and a half ago

OhSoLaMeow (2536022) writes "From the Daily Caller:
"A recently introduced bill in the Illinois state Senate would require anonymous website comment posters to reveal their identities if they want to keep their comments online. The bill, called the Internet Posting Removal Act, is sponsored by Illinois state Sen. Ira Silverstein. It states that a “web site administrator upon request shall remove any comments posted on his or her web site by an anonymous poster unless the anonymous poster agrees to attach his or her name to the post and confirms that his or her IP address, legal name, and home address are accurate.”
This could be the death of Slashdot: No more ACs."

Bed, Bath & Beyond recalls tissue holder on ra

OhSoLaMeow OhSoLaMeow writes  |  more than 2 years ago

OhSoLaMeow (2536022) writes ""Bed Bath & Beyond Inc is recalling tissue holders because one of its materials emits low levels of radiation, the company said on Friday."

They go on to say "The NRC has also informed us that the material is believed to be in the tissue holder itself and cannot be inhaled, nor can it contaminate other objects (such as tissues)."

Darn. Not enough radiation to generate the 1.21 gigawatts needed for my flux capacitor."
