Europe and China Will Team Up For a Robotic Space Mission

Yoda222 Re:Where to? (39 comments)

That's the goal of the call for proposal. Something like "Dear scientist, we have a budget of 300kg and 50 millions euros (out of which x% must be kept for the platform). What do you want to do?"

Paris Terror Spurs Plan For Military Zones Around Nuclear Plants

Yoda222 Re:Domestic war (148 comments)

Napoleon would have never allowed an enemy to set up 791 camps inside the country to train in tactics, ideology, logistics, and safe zones for enemies of the Republic

Nor did Hollande, Sarkozy, Chirac or any french President (or prime minister). There is no such camps.

If you have any useful information to identify the people flying the drones over the reactors, I think some people may be interested.

Gunmen Kill 12, Wound 7 At French Magazine HQ

Yoda222 Re:Really? On Slashdot? (1350 comments)

Can you give us two of such enclaves (two is the minimum, as you use plural). They must respect the conditions that you gives:

  • 1) be/becoming a Sharia-run enclave
  • 2) Absolutely no moderate* muslim said anything or did anything about it

* From what I understand when you use "moderate" in front of muslim, I would probably call them just "muslim" or "normal muslim", but I have kept your word.

Renewables Are Now Scotland's Biggest Energy Source

Yoda222 Re:Numbers in summary contradict headline (235 comments)

It could also be presented as 10.3 TWh of renewables vs 7 TWh of fossil vs 7.8 TWh of nuclear.

Or another way could be 7 TWh of fossil vs 18.1 of not fossil.

Or 7.8 of nuclear vs 17.3 of non nuclear.

"social justice warrior" is only an insult when it comes from someone who think that the opposite, "asocial injustice coward" is a compliment.

Philae's Batteries Have Drained; Comet Lander Sleeps

Yoda222 Re:Who cares about the lander? (337 comments)

I have both sciences, feminist and general news sources in my regular news feed. I've seen much more stuff about sciences than about shirt. Maybe you should reconsider your sources of information and remove some of the "feminist are devil" sources from them.

Philae's Batteries Have Drained; Comet Lander Sleeps

Yoda222 Re:Fair-weather power sources are lame... (337 comments)

You cannot really blame ESA to not take into account Mars rovers solar panel problems. I think it's very difficult to take problems which happens after the launch of a spaceprobe during the design of this probe. Maybe ESA should hire some fortune teller?

Boo! The House Majority PAC Is Watching You

Yoda222 No need for public record (468 comments)

I don't need to know if you have voted to send you two letters, one which says "You have a excellent voting record" and "You have a bad voting record". That's classic astrology stuff. Just send letters with something which applies to everyone. It's working, you have decided that the first one was a personalized letter and the second is one that they have send to everyone, while your neighbor that doesn't vote just think the opposite.

Yoda222 Re:Politically correct travel restrictions claptra (294 comments)

The good time cannot be the time when he was back in the US. For him, the time is 21 days from the time he left West Africa (not from the US arrival), to see if anyone has been infected by the subway trip or bowling game it's 21 days from these events.

Ebola Forecast: Scientists Release Updated Projections and Tracking Maps

Yoda222 Re:Politically correct travel restrictions claptra (294 comments)

So your point is that these people don't follow your advices (even if you are the top expert in epidemiology) and this as lead to a disastrous situation in the US

You mean the same experts who gave the OK for Amber Vinson to fly knowing she was exposed and had a fever?

How many people have been infected by contact with Amber Vinson?

Or the doctor who returned from Guinea who admitted he wasn't feeling good but decided to ride the subway multiple times, go bowling and eat out?

How many people have been infected by contact with this doctor?
