Cocaine Found At Kennedy Space Center

TheOV Re:Impact on work performance? (276 comments)

Not that it really counts as fact, but Sherlock Holmes would always turn to cocaine when he needed a boost during particularly grueling cases.

New Handheld Computer Is 100% Open Source

TheOV iPad? Really? (195 comments)

I don't think this device deserves to be compared to the "iPad and imitations thereof" - A) it's not a tablet; B) it's far less powerful; C) it doesn't even have any built-in network capability, which is what the iPad and its following are intended for; and D) it's horribly ugly. That being said, it looks like an excellent little device to hack on, and a big bonus is that it has USB ports! I may actually pick one up one of these days.

Is Apple's Attack On Flash Really About Video?

TheOV G(a)nash (595 comments)

US Grants Home Schooling German Family Political Asylum

TheOV Government education. (1324 comments)

Homeschooling was originally banned in Germany by Adolf Hitler in the 1930s, when he wanted to make sure that all German children were indoctrinated in the ways of the Nazi party. The Hitler Youth was the result. Government schooling isn't necessarily a bad thing, but if a government is promoting/enforcing a radical worldview, most if not all of the kids in the school system will pick it up. Like evolution.
