Jedi-ism Becomes a Serious Religion

Selur is it worth the effort ? (268 comments)

390,127 Brits declared their religion as Jediism
  vs.
at least 2,000 of them are "genuine,"

doesn't the difference seem a bit high ?

If they assume that roughly 0.5% of the answers are genuine, I wonder what they think about other statements from that census.
If you have to assume that less than a percent of the answers are genuine the whole thing doesn't really seem to be worth the effort.
(or the goal of the census was quite a different one than one would suspect)

Selur .. and this is new ? (83 comments)

Isn't this some of those things that kind of is a 'given' ?

Intel Putting 3D Scanners In Consumer Tablets Next Year, Phones To Follow

Selur copyright&co will make this 'fun' (75 comments)

This is a nice thing in the long run (once 3D printers are more widely spread, better and cheaper), but in the short run this will probably cause more trouble than it is worth.
Thinking about a younger person, like my son, who might scan some of his toys,gimmicks,... and post those scans somewhere and about some lawyer suing because he violated some laws he wasn't really aware of.
-> once 3D printers are more wide-spread the fun really starts :)

How the Outdated TI-84 Plus Still Holds a Monopoly On Classrooms

Selur Must be too old,.. (359 comments)

I conquered school (and university) without having a graphical calculator. And yes, I'm one of those who still knows how to calculate stuff in their head and work with fractions, integrals,.. on a normal piece of paper.

+ I too agree 150 $ for a school calculator is way too high, but I don't really see the point why a graphic calculator is really needed to begin with.
