Australia Elaborates On a New Drift Model To Find MH370

Patent Lover Re:Obsession (148 comments)

There's nothing that they can find that will tell what happened. If the aircraft flew 7 hours after it lost contact with ground than the cockpit voice recorders are useless as they would only have the last two hours of the flight. The flight data recorders would only show the plane going down where it was found. We all abhor a mystery but finding the plane will not remedy the situation.

Drone Sightings Near Other Aircraft Up Dramatically

Patent Lover Re:These idiots are going to ruin it for everyone (132 comments)

So the next question is can the pilots tell us what kind of drone they are seeing? Quadricopters are obviously much different than a model F-4. These sightings need a bit more information.

Buying Goods To Make Nuclear Weapons On eBay, Alibaba, and Other Platforms

Patent Lover We are dumb (260 comments)

Christ, Iran already has the fissionable material and the fucking centrifuges and still hasn't produced a weapon. We're really worried about somebody buying shit on eBay and making it in their basement?

Boo! The House Majority PAC Is Watching You

Patent Lover Repubs (468 comments)

Clearly this person registered as a Repub (which is a public record) and they want you to spread the word. The Repubs need recruits in NJ. I live in Virginia where you don't have to declare a party. They try to figure out who their friends are by sending out letters purporting to be a "survey". They have a bar coded serial number on them. It has questions that are the usual drivel such as "Do you believe in socialized medicine?" I just cut out the barcode and send back the post paid envelope with "FUCK YOU" written with a sharpie.

Patent Lover Re:Economics plays a role here (87 comments)

That's super. My original post was google "funding for Ebola vs. funding for DOD". The entire HHS budget is about $4.8 billion vs. $486 billion for DoD. Just setting forth our priorities.

Researchers Scrambling To Build Ebola-Fighting Robots

Patent Lover Re:Economics plays a role here (87 comments)

Your link was to the waste by the NIH. CDC is in charge of outbreaks like Ebola. NIH is responsible for researching whatever Congress grants if funding to do. Ebola was not in the budget.

Researchers Scrambling To Build Ebola-Fighting Robots

Patent Lover Re:Economics plays a role here (87 comments)

The NIH is not the CDC. By the way, the DoD will spend $495.6 Billion (with a B) next year. $39 million will not even pay for a fix for the cluster fuck that is the F-35.

Why America Won't Match Sweden's Cheap, Fast, Competitive Internet Services

Patent Lover Re:not complicated...monopology (346 comments)

I live in Fairfax County, Virginia. It's one of the most affluent counties in the nation. As of four years ago, we have two high speed internet options (before that, one), Cox Cable and Verizon FIOS. FIOS is still not available in some of the county. You can always get DISH or DirectTV, if you can laughingly call them high speed. If you think your situation is normal, you are misinformed.
