Overkill? LG Phone Has 2560x1440 Display, Laser Focusing

Servaas Re:640KB ought to be enough for anyone (198 comments)

It bugs me that people, while taking in consideration the intelligence Gates has would ever say something like that and mean 640KB would last forever.

'Godfather of Ecstasy,' Chemist Sasha Shulgin Dies Aged 88

Servaas Drugs can be bad mmkay! (164 comments)

As a former and still (sadly :() marijuana user i can tell you right now that if you are vulnerable to it drugs, any drug can cause you serious mental harm. I have suffered a psychoses episode just by smoking pot 1.5 year ago. Do note however I was seriously "down" at the time. Constant headaches, constant thinking about my problems really fucked me up. Worst 4 weeks of my life thus far. I literally trusted noone (not even my parents who in my psychoses state were holding me back from fully embracing the world order Illuminati!, yes I actually believed in it, I could write a book about how I viewed the world...) and I was a danger to myself.

I still sadly smoke it but I'm hoping to go clean in the next week or so. Thankfully I'm in a much better place right now so hopefully no more mental stuff.

Sadly the lure of the high still gets me. I listen to the Johnny Cash song "A Junkie's Prayer" a lot.

Well, she supported propping up eight dudes and having female soldiers point at their junk.

NASA Halts Non-ISS Work With Russia Over Ukraine Crisis

Servaas Re:Politcs vs. Science (291 comments)

Oh please! In all but name is Iraq now an American state. It had an evil dictator but the country "worked" for the most part. Now its controlled by US interest groups lording over all the mayor oil refineries. And the country itself is still "Working" the exact same way. People kill other people over beliefs.

At least with Russia their upfront about taking ownership of a piece of land.

I'm 33 years old, democrat, dutch guy who used to believe we needed to look to our big brother country America but these days i'm feeling more and more that Russia (doing pretty well atm jobs, income, healthcare) and the imo very sexy Putin are maybe another way of doing things...

Google Glass Making Its Way Into Operating Rooms

Servaas Re:"not suitable for use in life support systems.. (120 comments)

a UCSF cardiothoracic surgeon recently utilized Glass during procedures by utilizing its voice activation features to refer to patient x-ray scans

Shouldn't he have looked at those scans pre-operation? And people really think Google glass (a ui overlaying important, more relevant real life view) can replace a xray white board slightly to his left?

No they did not. Can't be bothered to look it up but it has been shown that Google like Apple does not check if there is a benchmarking program is running.

Servaas (1050156) writes "There has been a lot of news coverage in the netherlands about a 16 year old girl who wants to sail around the world to set the record of being the youngest person to do so.
