Congress's Techno-Ignorance No Longer Funny

PopeAlien Re:They don't want to (477 comments)

Get together with a million other geeks to throw money at this problem

This is the problem with allowing money to act as a form of 'free speech'. It's an arms race with more and more money trying to buy the 'right' laws and the people (corporations) that financially benefit from those laws will always have more money to buy more laws.

Japanese Use Wild Monkeys To Track Radiation

PopeAlien So, no Shakespeare then? (85 comments)

I'm guessing if they gave them a room full of a million typewriters they'd actually just scream and hurl feces.

That's probably what I'd do too.

Gardeners Told to Give Exhausted Bees an Energy Drink

PopeAlien Re:Short Sighted (200 comments)

..And just how much does the society for the protection of birds know about bees anyways? One theory for colony collapse disorder is malnutrition resulting from beekeepers feeding bees nothing but high fructose corn syrup over the winter. I know when I eat nothing but high fructose corn syrup I don't feel so hot.

BenQ's GP1 LED Projector — Small Package, Good Thing

PopeAlien Benq build quality. (93 comments)

I've got a 4 year old Benq projector and it's still going strong with regular use. They seem to have good build quality, and I love not having a visible TV box in the living room, just a pull down screen for when it's movie time. I'm surprised at the 100 lumen rating, that seems really low, but I guess it works in a dark enough environment.

Frogs Species Discovered Living In Elephant Dung

You call that living? ..and now to top it all off they have to deal with paparazzi? What a crappy deal.

the first time anyone has recorded frogs living in elephant droppings

There could be a reason for that...

frogs and Asian elephants, which are in decline.

So they're BOTH in deep shit?
