Colorado Sued By Neighboring States Over Legal Pot

Patent Lover Re:Dry Counties? (463 comments)

Sorry, but an out of state resident can only buy 1/4 ounce in a dispensary per month in Colorado. Not nearly enough to do any real trafficking. It's just the usual bs by people who have watched Reefer Madness one too many times.

Football Concussion Lawsuits Start To Hit High Schools

Patent Lover Re:Here's an idea (233 comments)

Other people's skulls. In 1904-1909 (before there were helmets) there was an average of 18 deaths a year in college football. The sport was tiny then.

Football Concussion Lawsuits Start To Hit High Schools

Patent Lover Re:Here's an idea (233 comments)

I love to talk to Brits about how soccer sucks. It's quite comical, actually. If it's 1 on 1 the chances of me getting the shit kicked out of me is ZERO.

Football Concussion Lawsuits Start To Hit High Schools

Patent Lover Re:Here's an idea (233 comments)

So instead of concussions, we'll just have deaths. Good idea.

Football Concussion Lawsuits Start To Hit High Schools

Patent Lover Re:When did jocks become such pussies? (233 comments)

I like Australian football and I respect the game but things are a bit different here. The few Australians that play in the U.S. are either place kickers or punters. Both would get knocked around like rag dolls if they decided to try to tackle anybody here. It's a completely different game.

Australia Elaborates On a New Drift Model To Find MH370

Patent Lover Re:Obsession (154 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.

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.
