top Reaction To the Sony Hack Is 'Beyond the Realm of Stupid'
I watched The President today hold a conference on TV and say how disappointed he was in Sony's actions. Are we to believe that this President, a legal scholar, is oblivious as to Sony's potential liability and destruction to their reputation should something happen ?
It's the American public that needs to stand up to ALL form of terrorism, from our corporations, legislature, all the way up to the Presidency and Congress.
It's time they ALL stopped milking the terrorism cash-cow.
top Time To Remove 'Philosophical' Exemption From Vaccine Requirements?
"Why? Excluding religion, there is no reason to believe that vaccines cause any harm: literally every study attempting to find otherwise has either failed or been proven fraudulent."
I'm as uncomfortable with this kind of statement being pawned-off as factual/"scientific" as I am with un-vaccinated kids going to school with my kids.
There are legitimate questions and issues with vaccines. Funny how they'll never be addressed so long as people lack any ability to think critically.

top Ask Slashdot: Non-Coders, Why Aren't You Contributing To Open Source?
NINE times in the past 3 years I've offered my services to various open source projects.
I was completely ignored 6 of those times, and the other 3 times was discouraged from participating at all and treated rudely.
Sorry, but the Open Source culture is the issue, not lack of people eager to participate in projects. It's kind of like the situation with Birkenstocks - useful, but at the same time also very good birth control.

top Facebook To DEA: Stop Using Phony Profiles To Nab Criminals
People need to understand that the police can and do, as a matter of course, lie. They're liars. To do their job, they lie, and you have no recourse if you talk to them and respond to a lie with anything that can even remotely be used against you. You can't even be sure you are talking to an officer, they can lie about that too.
Which has the effect of making people have increasing contempt and distrust for law enforcement - because you SHOULD have contempt and distrust for them.
Oh and your little definition of "entrapment" is bullshit, BTW.

top The Physics of Why Cold Fusion Isn't Real
Given how little posters here seem to be aware of the history of technological development and science in general though, I'm leaning towards the E-Cat being legitimate.
It certainly wouldn't be the first time a major technological breakthrough in the material sciences left academics and technicians who are wanna be researchers and experimenters befuddled and expressing frustration at their own relative lack of success and impotence.
top Independent Researchers Test Rossi's Alleged Cold Fusion Device For 32 Days
No, you're wrong.
A recent example I recall would be the Japanese company that had a special capacitor electrolyte formula, which they kept as a trade secret. A competitor stole it, not aware that their internal documentation included intentional errors in that documentation.
When a competitor stole the documentation and produced millions of caps based on it, that had a high failure rate, we ended up with motherboards loaded with bad caps for years.
Patent protection doesn't make people rich beyond imagination - that's an idiotic assertion that only a fool would make. Patent protection works well for organization that have a fortune to spend on armies of lawyers. The lone inventor and most corporations have trade secrets to protect their investments in their research.
To claim trade secrets are akin to fraud is to be entirely unaware of reality.
