US Warns of Problems In Chinese SCADA Software

Saeed al-Sahaf Re:I've said it before and I'll say it again (95 comments)

"Flaimbait" or fact? When someone posts a comment that trashes the Jewish State rather than addressing the actual subject of the article, isn't that "flaimbait"?

Weather Satellites Lose Funding

Saeed al-Sahaf Maybe Corporate America Should Loose Up the Purse? (275 comments)

Ham radio enthusiasts have been doing this forever.

This may be so. But...

There are a *LOT* of big-time commercial orgs that make use of government funded weather sats. Maybe it's time that some of the Big Money Bags that make bank off of publicly funded things like the National Weather Service started ponying up a little cash-ola?

Yet another 20-something who believes every little biased bullshit that some anarchist college student with a mission posts on the Interwebs.

No, that's just you Jew Hatred coming out. Your biased source, such that it is, is not reliable. People like you are no better than the Aryan Nations morons, certainly every bit as biased.

Industrial Marijuana Farming Approved In Oakland

Saeed al-Sahaf Re:That didn't take long (690 comments)

The percentage of people who abuse drugs and behaviors to induce a changed state of mood/feelings is around 10%, regardless of what chemical available.

Unless you are using for "medical" reasons, isn't "induceing a changed state of mood/feelings" the reason *MOST* people use alcohol and pot?

Microsoft Has No Plans To Patch New Flaw

Saeed al-Sahaf Re:Possible mitigation? (217 comments)

Would you stop that free market bullshit?

It's ***NOT*** "free market bullshit". It's ***YOU*** taking control of your purchaseing and buying products that work for you, rather than bitching, moaning, and complaining about Microsoft. If you ***LIKE*** to bitch, moan, and complain, I imagine that you are married or getting a divorce. But most people AVOID bitching, moaning, and complaining. So buy stuff that works for you and leave the rest behind. UNLESS you are like RMS, and just like to BITCH MOAN AND COMPLAIGN about Microsoft.

Microsoft Has No Plans To Patch New Flaw

Saeed al-Sahaf Re:Possible mitigation? (217 comments)

Excellent idea. In that way, when companies refuse to develop free drivers for GNU/Linux, we won't be able to make our own because the hardware will reject them.

So what? You're not required to buy or use any particular hardware.

First 'Malaria-Proof' Mosquito Created

Saeed al-Sahaf Re:side effect (261 comments)

Raving lunatic extremists of any movement are stupid.

Sure, of course.

But we should also be concerned about unintended consequence of genetic engineering. For example there are notable issues with the kinds of genetic engineering going on with plats such as corn and grain. We can debate the health concerns about genetically engineered crops, but there is no question that issues of cross pollen contamination to non-genetically engineered crops is an issue. There is some question about engineered salmon interacting with wild as well. Another example might be the continued vaccine resistant virus strains, and resistance to antibiotics.

Consumer Reports Can't Recommend iPhone 4

Such a cheap solution to a potential marketing disaster...

NASA's Plutonium Supply Dwindling; ESA To Help

Saeed al-Sahaf Re:Solution Right Here (173 comments)

It's considerably safer to put plutonium in orbit than your chili.

It's really *not* the chili, it's the resulting output.

Google Found Guilty of Australian Privacy Breach

Saeed al-Sahaf Mind Block (105 comments)

I really don't understand the issue: If you willingly radiate an unsecured Wi-Fi signal (or any type of signal), how can you claim a breach of "privacy"? *NOTHING* was "private"!

Open Source Music Fingerprinter Gets Patent Nastygram

Saeed al-Sahaf Re:Well, really... (487 comments)

If this were a rare occurrence, then yeah, I'd be up in arms.

It's *NOT* being a "rare occurrence" that is alarming. It's the fact that it isn't that we should be concerned.

Diaspora On Schedule, One Month In

Saeed al-Sahaf Re:good luck (90 comments)

Get off your high fucking horse. If you don't like FB, don't use it. The fact that you are bleating about it here means you spend most of your time in your mom's basement masturbating to porn. Now go back to your stroking.

Scientists Predict Gulf Dead Zone Due to Flooding

Saeed al-Sahaf Saeed al-Sahaf writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Saeed al-Sahaf (665390) writes "Researchers from the University of Michigan predict that the largest Gulf of Mexico 'dead zone' on record will result from the flooding, forecast to be between 8,500 and 9,421 square miles. The oxygen-starved Gulf dead zone is largely caused by farmland runoff containing fertilizers and livestock waste from as far away as the Corn Belt. In May 2011, 164,000 metric tons of nitrogen were transported to the northern Gulf, according to the U.S. Geological Survey — a 35% climb from average May nitrogen estimates in the last 32 years."

Seattle Bans "Bodies" Exibits

Saeed al-Sahaf Saeed al-Sahaf writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Saeed al-Sahaf (665390) writes "There will be no more commercial cadaver displays in Seattle — unless the deceased or their families have consented. In a unanimous vote, Seattle City Council members voted in favor of legislation which will affect exhibits such as "Bodies" that display preserved human cadavers. Premier Exhibitions, which sponsors the "Bodies" exhibit, says it can't verify where the bodies are from or that the deceased on exhibit consented to such display. On its website, Premier said it obtained its more than 200 bodies from a plastination facility in China, which received them from Chinese medical universities. The universities received them from the Chinese Bureau of Police."
