Tesla Model S Caught Fire While Parked and Unplugged

Reilaos Re:-_- (329 comments)

A entire car line was recalled for catching fire for no reason earlier last year. People got in hi-speed wrecks and caused fires, happening to be in a Tesla. The latter gets coverage, the former gets hardly any. No spin from what I can see here, just a disproportionate coverage on a car that's already in the spotlight.

Facebook Debuts New Gender Options, Pronoun Choices

Reilaos Re:What's the difference? (462 comments)

What about genetic abnormalities? XXY? XYY? What about those who have Androgen insensitivity syndrome, where they exhibit superficially female organs and female secondary sex characteristics, but are genetically male?

Additionally, you've also mistaken sex for gender, which is a longer post that I'm too lazy to write.

But you do use more power than if you used network cables. I think that's what he was getting at.

State Rep. Says Biking Is Not Earth Friendly Because Breathing Produces CO2

Reilaos Re:Not as strange as it sounds (976 comments)

Well, it would be more fair to include the carbon footprint of producing the gas. Including the footprint of bus production would be the equivalent of including the footprint to produce the bike.

Full Review of the Color TI-84 Plus

Reilaos Re:Magical Black Boxes (233 comments)

And I really wouldn't mind that. Drivers should understand at least the basics of pistons, power braking/steering, and momentum, I think.

Library of Congress Offers Update On Huge Twitter Archive Project

Reilaos Re:He who archives my tweets (88 comments)

Some of the most important historical knowledge comes from things that people at the time wouldn't consider important. Things like grocery lists can help determine the diets and agricultural abilities of a culture at the time.

For an example I just made up: In the future, the presence or lack of traffic reports could, alongside legal/budget records, help a historian verify the spread/development of roadways.

Twitter could be a huge source of topics and a wealth of information for historians in the future.

They may conclude that we were all idiots. This too, counts as useful information.

LulzSec Leader Sabu Unmasked, Arrested and Caught Collaborating

Reilaos Chopping off the head... (511 comments)

They're chopping off the head of an organization that's hasn't operated as a discrete entity for around 9 months?

Or have I missed something? Has Lulzsec operated as Lulzsec (and not part of the overarching Anonymous movement) recently?

Anonymous Claims Responsibility For WikiLeaks Attack

Reilaos Re:They had it comming (183 comments)

Sorry for the double post, but to put it another way:

If it walks like a duck, looks like a duck and sounds like a duck, it probably isn't a cat, even if it insists so.

Anonymous Claims Responsibility For WikiLeaks Attack

Reilaos Re:They had it comming (183 comments)

I don't see how that applies. I never pointed out a specific behaviour, for one thing; just that there is a certain minimum set of parameters to meet to be reasonably considered 'Anonymous.'

That is, my statement is closer to "No Scotsman doesn't have roots in Scotland"; if someone claims to be Scottish but doesn't exhibit the core of the definition save for affecting a bad accent, then they're just playing at being Scottish.

Anonymous Claims Responsibility For WikiLeaks Attack

Reilaos Re:They had it comming (183 comments)

Not entirely true; claiming to be Anonymous while not acting and behaving in a particular manner is like a pale skinny asian kid trying to call himself a jock while trying to keep his glasses from sliding down his nose.

Does Quantum Theory Explain Consciousness?

Reilaos Re:As the saying goes... (729 comments)

The 'joke'/wordplay here is that Quantum mechanics often appears to be 'magic' (or dreams) which form the basis of reality (stuff).
