Fighting the Flu May Hurt Those Around You

Zantac69 Hrrrrr... (351 comments)

No shit sherlock.

Fever is one of your body's ways to fight infection. When you supress it, you "enable the virus."

But I will take antipyretics when I damn well feel like it. Tough shit if someone else gets sick.

DARWIN, BABY!

Controversial Execution In Ohio Uses New Lethal Drug Combination

I think it was a notification of opinion dismissal only - clearly not a notification of opinion importance and/or acknowledgement.

Controversial Execution In Ohio Uses New Lethal Drug Combination

Zantac69 Re:Hmm (1038 comments)

Invoking the victim in the crime? Completely irrelevant.

As for any suffering by McGuire - fuck the fucking fucker. 10 minutes of discomfort (that we dont even know he had) is childsplay to the hell (if there is one) he is being spit roasted in and the pain and suffering that he inflicted on the victim and her family.

eBay Founder Pleads For Leniency For the PayPal 14

Zantac69 Re: Fuck Them (225 comments)

Shit comparison. One can simply walk past or through a picket line and into the buisness and have your transaction. I have done it before...and would do it again.

Want to protest, hold a sign, get some light cardio marching in a circle chanting catchly slogans? Go ahead!
Want to get in my way for doing buisness? Then fuck you and the horse you rode in on as you are not going to waste my time and money with your "cause."

Anonymous Member Sentenced For Joining DDoS Attack For One Minute

Zantac69 Re:Importance (562 comments)

Fluffy did have a good point. If you participate in a criminal action - then you are potentially on the line for the whole kit and kaboodle. Running a red light is not even the same sport. I wont get a ticket if I am a passenger in the car that runs a red light, but I sure as shit would if I was driving my car and ran the light along with a long string of others. Now - should Rosol have to pay for the bug fix? Hell no - thats like having a criminal pay for a new type of lock because they picked the other one easily.

Last Bastion For Climate Dissenters Crumbling

Zantac69 Re:Last bastion (963 comments)

Science is defined by facts - not majority "rule." Climate change is real...but who is to blame and what the "goldilocks" point is for the planet is not for us to determine - and we should stop being so arrogant as to thinking that we are the judge, jury, and executioner on this. We adapt...or we die.

Electronics In Flight — Danger Or Distraction?

Zantac69 Re:I would be very concerned (532 comments)

I call bullshit.

Sitting at my desk, I could tell if the phone was about to ring about 2 seconds before it actually did. Not because I am psychic, but because my computer speakers would buzz and drone...then the phone would ring.

Now could it bring a plane down? I have no clue...but twitchy readings on sensitive equipment is nothing to scoff at.

Survey Shows That Fox News Makes You Less Informed

Zantac69 Re:Not Stupid but #1 with Stupid People (1352 comments)

So is the iPhone.

It has the most users. One could argue that, among the technically challenged (i.e stupid), iPhone is more popular. Stupid iphone users > stupid other smartphone users.

Thus, iPhone is the #1 choice of stupid people.

That is not to say that all iPhone users are stupid...

AkzoNobel develops nanotech based invisibility

Zantac69 Zantac69 writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Zantac69 (1331461) writes "A revolutionary new paint has been developed by AkzoNobel which cracks one of the biggest ever scientific challenges — invisibility.

Working with renowned nanotechnology Professor Olaf Proli, the AkzoNobel has developed a hi-tech textile coating — Invisulux — which renders people wearing the painted garments invisible. Successful trials have already been carried out by interested security and defense organizations.

Working closely with AkzoNobel's own scientists, Professor Proli has created a special molecule which manipulates the visible portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, allowing light to pass straight through.""
