Contact Lenses With Infrared Vision?

amRadioHed Re:What will it look like? (99 comments)

How would you describe red only in terms of blue and green? You can't. If the people were actually seeing a new color they wouldn't even try describing it.

Jimmy Wales To 'Holistic Healers': Prove Your Claims the Old-Fashioned Way

amRadioHed Re:You know what they call alternative medicine... (517 comments)

No, the assertion was never made that all alternative medicine has been proven not to work. The assertions made are that all alternative medicine have not been proven to work, and some have been proven not to work. Both are true.

Jimmy Wales To 'Holistic Healers': Prove Your Claims the Old-Fashioned Way

amRadioHed Re:You know what they call alternative medicine... (517 comments)

Right, that's why there are still medical researchers improving and expanding the field of western medicine continuously. No one claimed western medicine was perfect and complete.

Second Federal 'Kill-switch' Bill Introduced Targeting Smartphone Theft

amRadioHed Re:"... as a means to reduce theft." (158 comments)

Except it's not like that, because if it's mandatory then the robber knows ahead of time that the thing is useless to steal. That's the idea, at least.

Woman Attacked In San Francisco Bar For Wearing Google Glass

amRadioHed Re:No, not those who don't understand... (921 comments)

Territory to be defended? Were talking about a bar in San Francisco, not a third world war-zone. If your experience is with the kind of place where it's normal to assault others at the slightest provocation, that's fine. But don't expect your experience to reflect those of us in a more civil society.

Woman Attacked In San Francisco Bar For Wearing Google Glass

amRadioHed Re:No, not those who don't understand... (921 comments)

What is rude or offensive of taking photos of your friends? Nowhere was it said that photos were being taken of the people who were complaining.

Woman Attacked In San Francisco Bar For Wearing Google Glass

amRadioHed Re:No, not those who don't understand... (921 comments)

Of course if you're taking pictures of a specific person you need to respect their wishes if they ask you to stop. But they don't have the right to tell you to stop taking pictures of your friends, or anyone else.

No one has every done that. As they shouldn't. Unless they work for the bar, they have no right to dictate other customers behavior.

amRadioHed Re:No, not those who don't understand... (921 comments)

Holding the camera up pointing at the room with the screen towards you would be offensive whether or not you were filming.

No it would not be, unless you are a psychopath. Seriously, people take photos in bars and nightclubs all the time.

Making Sure Our Lab Equipment Isn't Tricking Us

amRadioHed Re:again with the assumptions. (108 comments)

Right, but the scientists decision to use a certain set of quasars could be influenced just as much as their decision to set the experiments parameters a certain way could be.

Making Sure Our Lab Equipment Isn't Tricking Us

amRadioHed Re:again with the assumptions. (108 comments)

If the scientists free will in choosing the settings of the detectors can't be trusted, how can their free will in choosing the quasars that will choose the settings of the detectors be trusted?

Cops With Google Glass: Horrible Idea, Or Good One?

amRadioHed Re:Just some thoughts (192 comments)

How does editorializing by the author of this piece equate to Google trying to bamboozle the public with nonsequiturs?

Cops With Google Glass: Horrible Idea, Or Good One?

amRadioHed Re:I'd say Great Idea (192 comments)

Most people are not in a position where they can legally take someones life, so I don't think this is really a slippery slope. Maybe make it a policy that the video can only be accessed if the officer is being investigated for wrongdoing.

Journal of Cosmology Contributor Sues NASA To Investigate Mars "Donut"

amRadioHed Re:Very funny. (140 comments)

Actually, NASA would do well to drive the Rover back there and study the hell out of it, if nothing else than to put the whack-job conspiracy nuts to shame.

You're assuming that whack-job conspiracy nuts can be shamed, an idea which is not supported by the evidence.
