Senators Want To Punish Nokia, Siemens Over Iran

The Blue Daisy Re:Because Cisco would never do such a thing (392 comments)

Iran is majority shia, not wahabi (like Saudi Arabia - America's bestest friend). Kind of discredits whatever you say, don't it?

The State of Iran's Ongoing Netwar

The Blue Daisy Re:From Tatsuma. (263 comments)

I have to say that most of this is bullshit. I'm not sure who 'Tatsuma' is, but just the first part of his post is full of crap.

1. Lebanese Hizbullah in Iran in large numbers? Why are they required. If the leadership needs to mobilise, the Baseej are enough. Also, the post is full of the usual anti-Arab racism that most non-religious, usually non-Iranian, Persians possess. Iranians won't hurt fellow Iranians, but Arabs will? What about the Shah and his SAVAK? Were they imported Arabs as well?

2. The Rahbar using the Friday prayers to collect and arrest opposition figures: So, let me get this, the Leader, with all the powers at this disposal and with full knowledge of the location of Musavi etc. still needs to bring them to himself because he can't arrest them otherwise? Bullshit.

I basically stopped reading after this point. The post /seems/ insightful, but only to those un-aware of the realities of Iran. Tatsuma is most probably an expat Iranian whose family fled after the revolution or a clueless iPod Iranian, mostly uninformed and spewing wild rumours and speculation. You'll get more impartial and informed opinions from Fox News.

The Dismounted Soldier Problem

The Blue Daisy How about a mechanical suit suspended in mid-air (271 comments)

Why not just have a nice large suit that's strung up or something and you strap the guy in. As he moves, the suit translates the movement of his body into signals...

It would have to be more rigid than an overgrown data glove to adequately support the user's body and provide force feedback...

You can't hang in the air and swing your legs around like you're walking without getting tired real soon, so some support would be nessasary.
