YoungManKlaus Re:"cut and paste"? (174 comments)

Jeah, but today nobody does that any more. I thought about writing that as well but I was lazy. The "modern" replacement just shows how old-fashioned and out-of-touch these guys really are.

Know Your Type: Five Mechanical Keyboards Compared

YoungManKlaus All those are crap (190 comments)

If you want MX switches, get a Cherry MX Board 3.0 ... costs around half the money (60€), is extremely sturdy, and they come with various switches (esp. blues and browns which are best for productive work - though not for gaming supposedly). Multimedia and macro buttons are overrated anyhow (and to me even annoying).

The Beatles, Bob Dylan and the 50-Year Copyright Itch

YoungManKlaus The question is... (153 comments)

... if they would be distinguishable from "biological" species. I.e. what if they genetically engineer bodies as a housing (kinda "reverse cyborg") and push that to the limit -> in the end you'll end up with a self-programming biological body which has its roots in highly advanced robotics and noone would be any the wiser.

No More Foamy Beer, Thanks To Magnets

YoungManKlaus Magnets got nothing to do with it (130 comments)

antifoaming agent is the trick ... and I wouldn't want to have that in my beer. Also nothing worse than getting a flat-looking beer. A good stiff foam crown is very important.

Judge Rules Drug Maker Cannot Halt Sales of Alzheimer's Medicine

YoungManKlaus Patent system needs non-use-clause (266 comments)

i.e. if a patent is not used in an actual product it will go invalid after a short amount of time. I think a year or two at most should be sufficient. Same should go for copyright obviously. If the owner is not interested in doing reprints then it should be allowed for others to do so.

The Shale Boom Won't Stop Climate Change; It Could Make It Worse

YoungManKlaus Could? (401 comments)

I mean, seriously, you are still blowing CO2 previously bound in the earth into the atmosphere. Just because you take your carbon from a short-chained molecule instead of a long-chained one does not fundamentally alter whats happening.
