Researchers Scrambling To Build Ebola-Fighting Robots

Skiboy941 Re:What? (87 comments)

It obviously didn't work for that nurse in Texas. Or the WHO volunteers in Africa who were massacred by the locals. So, yeah. Robots seem appropriate.

Thousands of Leaked KGB Files Are Now Open To the Public

Skiboy941 Dead Trees (95 comments)

If I can't download it, then what's the point of this even being posted? Am I really going to have to fly to Britain to read these? Also, It's in Russian. These aren't useful in their current form. "Hi guys! I'm going to leak the TRUTH! But you'll have to be able to know how to read Russian, be in Britain, set up an appointment, and have 2 forms of ID!" Hopefully, some nice person will bother to scan these, just like they did with JD Sallinger's "unreleased" stories.

The Best and Worst From CES 2013

Skiboy941 Re:Silly names... (152 comments)

From wikipedia: "He is typically depicted as a man with a large belly wearing a loincloth, having long hair and having pendulous, female-like breasts." So the fork is to prevent you from getting fat and getting man-titties?
