Man Charged With HIPAA Violations For Video Taping Police

Vernes Not enough camera's in the hands of citizens (620 comments)

Replay this scene, but every citizen has google glass posting shit to facebook, google+, twitter and shit at the push of one button.
Not just this guy, but everyone nearby, the passing pizza deliverer, a taxidriver waiting for a trafficlight, the jogger, the medics, the victim.
The police will have an heartattack when those glasses get mainstream.

New York Culls Sex Offenders From the Online Gaming Ranks

Vernes Re:Labels (511 comments)

Not familiar with the law in America. But would you consider "drunk sex" planning ahead? And how does the law deal with "drunk sex" where one of the parties involved decides he/she did not like it the next day (when sober again)?

Glow-In-The-Dark Smart Highways Coming To the Netherlands In 2013

Vernes Re:The War On Common Sense (167 comments)

As an average Dutch driver I have to agree even if I feel I do not fit that description.
German drivers know how to drive on a highway.
Left side is for driving FUCKING FAST!
If you see the dot in your backmirror growing larger, it means there is someone driving FUCKING FASTER!
And they.. move aside to the right lane.
On the dutch motorways, you just dump your car infront of the guy driving 160kmh even though you are driving 100
Because god forbid you have to slow down and wait for him to pass.
In other news, flashing your breaklights is really fun if there is a slow moving traffic-jam, because the one thing moving traffic-jams need is a wave of breaking cars because you can't handle the gas-throttle between "pressed through your car-floor" and "firmly pressed on the break".

Dutch are in general, assholes as soon as they get in their car.

So, what's the ETA on that car-robot google seems to play around with?

Curiosity Finds Volcanic Soils

Vernes Re:Sweet (52 comments)

They also like nutrients from the soil.
There are none on mars.
You will need to fling large amount of ready-to-use nutrient rich soil along with those plants.
Now you have plants converting nutrients AND carbon dioxide in more nutrients.

Thinking further, I think you need to resurrect one of em dinosaur era plants for trapping carbon dioxide.
Plants did a lot of carbon dioxide trapping in those days.

Koch Bros Study Finds Global Warming Is Real And Man-Made

Vernes Re:But the real question is... (769 comments)

A few questions:
Are you saying sea levels won't rise?
If so, are you saying the climate won't change?
If not, are you saying that Florida will not be under water despite sea level rise?

please please let this be the legal action that will come back and kill the RIAA.
I never had to know this before, but is CNET big enough to withstand and punch back any legal actions thrown by the RIAA?

...use violence.

Nobody wants to side with your goal anymore.
And those who do, are only there for the violence.

High School Students Sue Federal Gov't Over Global Warming

Vernes Re:kids are worried ... (491 comments)

I was trying to offer the notion that each generation encompasses a world, not a country.
That everybody in the world feared 'The Bomb', and the claim "Neither happened" is untrue if you're born in the wrong country.
So dismissing these fears based on personal experience means dismissing events that matched these fears.

But you know this I'm sure, but perhaps... you misunderstand just for the hell of it.

MSN no longer allows some thepiratebay.se links

Vernes Vernes writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Vernes (720223) writes "The Pirate Bay is not only the most visited BitTorrent site on the Internet, but arguably the most censored too. Many ISPs have been ordered to block their customers’ access to the website, and recently Microsoft joined in on the action by stopping people sharing its location with others. Microsoft’s Windows Live Messenger (MSN) now refuses to pass on links to The Pirate Bay website, claiming they are unsafe."
