The Worst US Cities To Work In IT

TheJorge Re:Come on, Detroit isn't that bad. (538 comments)

As a commuter who rides the train that feeds Fenway, I can say that's a major detriment. Nothing like 30 minutes in a packed train with sweaty drunk fans to end your day in the office 2-3 times a week.

Anti-Missile Defenses For Commercial Jets

TheJorge Re:Dude, you don't get it (594 comments)

On a plane, you don't need that large of an explosion to bring the whole thing down.

Care to cite a source? It was my understanding that it in fact took a considerable force to bring a plane down, unless you happened to detonate inside the cockpit. Cabin decompression would at best kill a couple passengers and force an emergency landing.

And while a plane can be used as a weapon more easily than a train, I don't see how liquids would be the controlling factor in such a takeover.
