Paul Haggis vs. the Church of Scientology

ac7xc So What? (426 comments)

In a world where 50 million children are malnourished who cares if Scientologist read strange books and use E-meters to read their souls? I don't know why this is a subject for Slashdot in the first place.

German Military Braces For Peak Oil

ac7xc Raise fuel taxes for individual POV's (764 comments)

To solve the problem nations would have to raise the taxes on fuel for POV's and ration gas for them. For vehicles that are used for distribution of goods like trucks they would be exempt from any higher fuel taxes. POV owners would most likely switch to public transport and those live on the edge of the economy would get rid of their cars altogether. The most important item is that goods get priority in distribution so there is no shortage of them and individuals will need to adjust to higher costs and switching to public transport.

Health Insurance When Leaving the Corporate World?

ac7xc Try a non-profit health insurance provider (1197 comments)

My option was to find a non-profit health insurance company for my health insurance. Make sure that you do not omit anything in the application. For children you will most likely need to go over their medical records with a doctor/nurse, because sometimes doctors or nurses will write something down and not tell a parent or guardian. Also if a child has been to a ER go over those records also.

Reuters and Yahoo! Enlist Camera Phones

ac7xc This has lawsuit written all over it. (94 comments)

Why would anyone give away their IP to a for profit corporation so they can make thousands of dollars off the video and get nothing in return? The Michael Richards video has brought in millions of dollars to media corporations and the fool that gave it away has nothing.
