Secret Service Investigating Small Drone On White House Grounds

TimSSG Secret Service Investigating Small Drone On White (143 comments)

Personally I would worry more about the large Drones in the White House and on the Grounds than the small ones. Drone: one that lives on the labors of others. Tim S.

Calif. DMV Back-Pedals On Commercial-Plate Mandate For Ride-Share Drivers

TimSSG Re:read your contract (204 comments)

When I used the personal vehicle for work, I had to pay a little extra to have coverage. And, this was just me transporting myself and tools from job site to job site. Tim S.

Government Recommends Cars With Smarter Brakes

TimSSG Re:Airplanes handle it better (303 comments)

Airbus seems to think pilots are stupid. But, in their defense there does seem to have been a lot of Airbus accidents caused by pilot error. So, either Airbus pilots are more stupid or their training is really bad. Tim S.

Behind the MOOC Harassment Charges That Stunned MIT

TimSSG Re:Popcorn time! (372 comments)

So you see nothing wrong with a professor using his status to obtain sexual favors?

How can there be any thing wrong with it. An Professor to student power differential is much less than the President and a college intern differential. And, we all were told that that one did not matter at all. /sarc Tim S.

TimSSG FBI (96 comments)

Is this the same FBI that told us NK was responsible for the Sony hack?

Fukushima Radioactive Fallout Nears Chernobyl Levels

TimSSG Re:Sensational! (537 comments)

I guess this was the UK radiation release I read about around 1980 (doing High School project) and not Chernobyl release that cause the sheep farms problem. That High School project was why I knew the reports was full of it when they talked about TMI. Tim S.

NASA Buys 12 Seats On Soyuz

TimSSG Re:rewind 40 years (236 comments)

The problem is technically we can not build an Saturn V; the project was not documented well enough on what was done and for what reason. To much knowledge was only in people heads and never written down in one single place.

First Brit Prosecuted Over Twitter Libel

TimSSG Re:For all that's wrong with Britain's libel.... (116 comments)

The way the article is written implies someone with the same name was removed by the police; in the USA, I am not sure it would be Libel. It might be it might not.

Ask Slashdot: Worst Computer Scene In TV or Movies?

TimSSG Re:Most of the biggies have been covered, but my f (1200 comments)

I read a book that had a dragon down a jet fighter and no one, who saw the recordings, was willing to admit it was a dragon. They "digitize it" and then told the computer operator to do about a dozen different changes to adjust the image till it looked like a jet aircraft.

King Wants To Sell Out Ham Radio

TimSSG Re:You'll miss them in a disaster (309 comments)

The idea is after you get out of the radiation area that drinking beer will cause you to piss out liquid. This helps the body reduce the radiation in it.

TimSSG Re:What?? (176 comments)

I hate the fact that Windows "7" is version 6.1; I can see future support people asking are you using version 7.0 or Windows 7?

Posting AC - a Thing of the Past?

TimSSG Another Indy Link (390 comments)

"You want to know who is responsible? JEFF MILLER. He is the most greedy man I've ever known," a commenter identified as Indeed posted on the IBJ's site.

"If you accuse somebody of committing a crime of thievery, that is defamation, and we believe that is what they are saying," said Miller's attorney, Kevin Betz. "The Internet is not a license to defame people and treat them in a mean-spirited way that harms them psychologically and economically."[BR]

If the CEO is maintaining he is not responsible for the funds not being used right; then, I think he needs to be sued for being very stupid. The person at the top is always responsible for the acts of undertaken by people employed by the company. The rest (" most greedy") is an opinion and can NOT be grounds for lawsuits in nearly all cases.

Genghis Khan, History's Greenest Conqueror

TimSSG Re:yep... (279 comments)

This is the perfect place to ask if the Carbon Trading happens in the USA; then, will murders get money for reducing the carbon footprint of the people they kill. It seems almost what some people want; they keep saying there is too many people on the planet. I am against Carbon Trading because some of the companies for it seem to be do all the evil type outfits. Tim S.

TimSSG Re:Not stopped by CIA bombs (339 comments)

This is a possible example of the left wing bias of the news media; if a republican had been president the news would have likely be much louder in the USA. Tim S.
