Mandatory Automotive Black Boxes May Be On the Way

PoopJuggler Re:Next we will all be required to be chipped (619 comments)

I've never understood why people feel they have a right to choose to do something dangerous.

Because that's how freedom works. I've never understood why people feel the need to throw their freedom away based on fear.

Judge Orders Former San Francisco Admin Terry Childs To Pay $1.5M

PoopJuggler Re:Oh thank god.. (488 comments)

And why can't the city just let this one go?

Because people are punitive vindictive little trolls for the most part, especially when it comes to someone challenging their authority. It's the same reason why cops beat speeders, same reason why parents spank their kids. "How dare you challenge me?" is what their brain says. People think that doling out harsh punishments will somehow free them of their anger inside. Anger derived from a sense of loss-of-power, because their identity is based on power. To me, that's not true power at all. True power would be to rise above all that and act compassionately. You're powerful because you can inflict harm on another person? Nope, you're powerful if you can overcome yourself....

Do Geeks Make Better Adults?

PoopJuggler Money/Fame != Success (335 comments)

I detest how America sees becoming rich and famous as the only measure of being successful. I have a good job, wife, and kids, and wouldn't trade them for all the money or fame in the world. In fact, I've had money, but now money and fame would make me miserable, and who knows what it would do to my relationship with my family. It's like how people win the lottery and it destroys their life. I would say you have not become successful in life until you have shed your desire for material things, ego gratification, etc... Money might buy temporary pleasure, but not true happiness.

Battle Brews Over FBI's Warrantless GPS Tracking

PoopJuggler Re:DIY alibi kit! (259 comments)

Would it be legal for me to equip my car with a jamming device that would render any GPS attached to it inoperable, just in case the FBI ever decides to attach one of these things? Once you find it it's easy to fuck with it, but what about all that time spent before you actually found the thing?

Crashed Helicopter Sparks Concern Over Stealth Secrets

PoopJuggler Re:Yes it was modifed (484 comments)

If this tech is so top-secret, why don't they spend some time and build a self-immolate feature into the entire helicopter? They don't really seem to try to not let the tech fall into the wrong hands...

Murder Trial May Turn On Missing Router

PoopJuggler Re:VOIP? Router? (214 comments)

Why misappropriate hardware from your employer, when you probably already have the hardware you need in a box in the attic?

I doubt he was planning this. He probably just flipped out and killed her. Why did OJ kill his wife in such a sloppy way? Some people just aren't criminal masterminds.

Google Sued For Tracking Users' Locations

PoopJuggler Re:Irresistible (266 comments)

There is no ambiguity if you have half a brain.

Unfortunately our legal system seems to favor those with less grey matter.

Robo-Gunsight System Makes Sniper's Life Easier

PoopJuggler Re:Laser guidance? (265 comments)

not only is smaller calibres less lethal on the rages where guided bullets makes sense

I would think that once you have guidance systems for bullets, they would pretty much be lethal at any range considering you can make then hit vital organs at-will...

Copyright Law Is Killing Science

PoopJuggler Re:Poor Science (323 comments)

All joking aside, what you're pointing at is part of the natural cycle of social cultures. Things like science and religion come in and out of fashion, just like clothing styles, but maybe on a longer scale. Soon religion will be dead, and then science will die again, etc..

Why Has Blu-ray Failed To Catch Hold?

PoopJuggler Simple (1162 comments)

Blu-ray discs and players are clearly superior to DVDs, offering more features and a better picture overall. So why haven't shoppers been impressed?

Because there is a limit as to how much quality normal people need in their life. It's like why we still eat rectangular loaves of wheat bread that people have been eating for the past 200 years. It's just "good enough".. I'm sure with lots of technology we could make really impressive bread, but for most people it just doesn't matter. Sure the bread connoisseurs might appreciate the fancy BluRay Bread but there are not enough connoisseurs out there to really justify a mass market for that kind of bread... Now I'm hungry.

Using Neutrons To Precisely Test Newton's Law of Gravity

PoopJuggler Neutrons (123 comments)

Question. TFA says that because neutrons have no charge they "are as isolated from all the forces of nature as they can possibly be, with only gravity to act on them." Then they say they have a metal plate that repels them, and one that attracts them. Seems contradictory... ?
