Nope, I just clicked reply on the wrong post, sorry about that.
Leaked: Obama's Rules For Assassinating American Citizens
Yea because this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Athens_(1946) clearly never happened and didn't work according to your logic.
New York Passes Landmark Gun Law
You have to understand terminal ballistics to understand why they changed from MP5s to rifles(M16/M4/whatever). The 9mm round actually has a higher chance of over-penetrating a target than a .223 even though it has far less power. The .223 tends to fragment and tumble while the 9mm stays solid and passes through in roughly a straight line; possibly hitting someone behind them. This is research which has been done on statistics over the last 20 years from dozens of countries' police forces which is why you see the change moving away from sub-machineguns all over and not just in a single country.
Researcher Warns That Military Must Prepare For "Mutant" Future
Mr. President, we must not allow... a mutant soldier gap!
Learning Rocket Science With Video Games
I've been playing KSP for a while too and it's a fantastic game. The reason you can't do Lagrange points is that it uses patched conics which does "spheres of influence" around planetary bodies and doesn't do gravity interpolation. That being said, the math was good enough to get us to the moon, so for a game as fun as KSP I'm not too upset.
Aircraft Carriers In Space
In the book series The Night's Dawn Trilogy space combat was between manned ships which launched weapons drones. They were nothing more than a navigational computer strapped to an engine with lots of sub-munitions(nukes, kinetic projectiles, bomb pumped lasers, and ECM pods). They'd fly around with pretty realistic physics and launch swarms of the drones at each other, along the most probable paths the other ship would take, and then the drones would just fly in and shotgun all their munitions in the hopes of saturating the area enough so that one or two would hit even with the other ship firing countermeasures and maneuvering. It was pretty much all a game of probabilities.
Light Bulb Ban Produces Hoarding In EU, FUD In U.S.
When they banned large capacity toilets in 1992(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_Policy_Act_of_1992), people were actually smuggling them into the US from Canada and Mexico because they worked better than the water efficient ones mandated by law.
Man Orders TV On Amazon, Gets Shipped Assault Rifle
Hunting with a rifle in most states here, regardless of if the rifle is bolt action, lever action, or semi-auto, is limited to 5 rounds.
Schools Buy .xxx Domains In Trademark Panic
To see all the domain names Penn State is going to have to buy.
They won't have to buy a single one, they'll just have to report any pennstate* website to the FBI's child abuse division.
Columbus Blamed For Mini Ice Age
I had a nuclear engineer describe it to me this way. Nuclear power stations for the grid's base load, step it up a few extra levels and use the extra power to crack hydrogen. Use that hydrogen to run turbines for the grid's variable load and produce enough of an excess to be able to sell it to fuel cars. It will require a lot of nuclear reactors, but completely replaces our dependence on fuels which may run out at some point and if the ecomentalists ever get over their fear of nuclear power, will solve what they see as the poisoning of the atmosphere. Except for the fissionable materials, the entire process is renewable and leaves no pollution, and if those fastbreed(I think) reactors which can run on spent fuel rods work as designed, we wouldn't have much of a containment issue either.

There is a reason I got a CCW and carry in Atlanta.
Mars Rover Begins "Whole New Mission"
Humanoid Robot Wakes In Space, Tweets
The robot should have looked out the window and said "Hello World."

Politics: Paul-Barney Bill Would Legalize Marijuana Federally
If not for American Christianity, the War on Pot would be nothing more than some anti-Mexican racist rhetoric decades ago.
I can't remember his name, but the guy who owned most of the paper production in the US would have lost everything when people began cultivating hemp for paper, because it was cheaper and produced higher quality paper. So hemp was dragged through the mud in a disinformation campaign to make it illegal so he could hold his monopoly on paper production. It has absolutely nothing to do with Mexicans or Christians at all, it was entirely an economic move which relied on people's prejudices to convince them it needed to be banned.
An Entirely New Class of Aircraft Arrives
That Dyson fan is extremely loud, much louder than a moderately expensive traditional fan that's clean and balanced.
Granted, you can do really cool things with it if you have a bunch of them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WNcjkZ6d0w
The End of Paper Books
I turned 21 about 8 months ago and I have at a guess around four or five thousand books. It's what happens when you read 2-4 books a week for about 10 years and keep everything you read. My favorites are on a wrap-around ceiling bookshelf around my room, with an entire wall sized bookshelf holding the rest, everything else gets boxed up and stored away.
I do read a lot of ebooks too, but it's quite hard to take an ereader or a phone and keep it charged and working when you go camping or kayaking or hiking or sailing. A physical paper book you shove in your bag is a much easier way to bring a story with you.
I reject your assumption that paper books will die off, and I cite vinyl records as my evidence.
SpaceX Sues Valador For Defamation
...the State of California.
I think you mean the People's Republic of California.
And as a Georgian, I have no issues with not being allowed in California, I really don't have any desire to visit or live there. Reciprocally, I don't want any Californians in Georgia, so you need to add a few laws restricting them from ever leaving the state.
Chinese Moon Probe Ventures Into Deep Space
Well at least it wasn't built by FoxConn, otherwise it would have jumped "off" into the gravity well and smashed itself to pieces on the ground.
Could the US Phase Out Nuclear Power?
The "fuel" for solar/wind power is nuclear.
