Ditto, WTF is the submitter smoking?
Back then it was cutting edge, and still today it looks beautiful in it's own kind of retro way
Firefighters Let House Burn Because Owner Didn't Pay Fee
But to just stand there and watch it burn? That should be criminal, what if people died? I think the firefighters should go to jail. What has his world come to when the people sworn to serve and protect decide not to? Sounds like anarchy.
My thoughts exactly.
Kinda reminds me of that scene of the fire in gangs of NY. All that's missing is the firefighters sacking the neighbor's house.

Researchers Say Happiness Costs $75K
75k / 12 = 6250 $ per month, I guess that's the figure they're pointing at. Sure, the story title says 75k flat, but the summary clearly says 75k as an annual sum.
As for the picture of the coins with smileys, as i get it, suggests money + happiness, a good match for the story title. I can't see what is wrong with that.
A case of tabloid-like effectism at most, but which media outlet, big or small, isn't guilty of that these days?
Besides, the story is under the idle category. IMHO, it shouldn't be taken that seriously.
Digital Devices Deprive Brain of Needed Downtime

Or is that more appropriate to a mobile pr0n device?
NCsoft Sued For Making Lineage II 'Too Addictive'
Call me a cynic, but doesn't this reek of fabrication? Like NCSoft concocting this for use as a marketing ploy?
EVE Player Loses $1,200 Worth of Game Time In-Game
Seriously, a kestrel solo in Jita?
That's why i call BS on this. No player I know would risk such a ginormous loot on a T1 frig, no cloak, no backup, no insta-warp, no nada, on possibly the most wretched hive of scum and villainy in the entire cluster?.
The cynic in me could say this is a sort of publicity stunt/political smokescreen from CCP to deflect attention from that recent PR bomb.
For those unfamiliar with it: CCP years ago, after *another* PR snafu, designated a group of player-elected players to form a committee, called the "council of stellar management" (CSM) to allow players to elevate grievances and petitions to CCP's top brass, CCP supposedly even bestowing on them "shareholder" power or something of the sort (Pure BS if you ask me). Couple of weeks ago(last week even?), CCP essentially slipped that they didn't give a rat's ass about the CSM...
Kepler Investigator Says 'Galaxy Is Rich In Earth-Like Planets'
Water presence? Temperature within habitable range? At least a primordial atmosphere?
Not sure if Kepler is the right tool to collect that kind of data, but to call them "earth like" seems premature. Granted, if the size approaches that of earth chances are they're rocky, solid planets, but that's it.
Universe Closer To Heat Death Than Once Thought
Considering that red dwarfs are expected to last trillions of years (no red dwarf has ever died. The universe is too young), we just need to move to a planet around one of them, assuming they have habitable planets.
Us having the ability to travel all those light years to a red dwarf and possibly perishing because there are no habitable planets?
If we can travel FTL by then, why not imagining that we're able to send unmanned ships to build a cozy sphere around the geezer star, and then moving in?

Has the Rate of Technical Progress Slowed?
...the middle America just wants "science" in the dust bin and back to safe, faith based engineering subjects.
Can you even imagine a faith based engineer?:
- The Lord will split the river in two for us to build the dam, amen.
- Let's pray to Jesus Christ this holy bridge, made in the image of Moses' Ark, holds its own.
Might sound silly, but if some zealots have their way in changing education content, say, with stuff like intelligent design... who knows
Dinosaurs Could Hold Basketballs, But Not Dribble
who wishes us to believe dinosaurs could evolve to hold a basketball. the holy truth is of course intelligent dribbling, probably taught by 3 point all star jesus himself to intelligent basketball playing dinosaurs on jurassic half courts
