Indian Woman Sues Uber In the US Over Alleged New Delhi Taxi Rape

angel'o'sphere Re:Rapes are an unfortunate part of Indian scoeity (153 comments)

There is no taxpayer money wasted.
You are an idiot.

The involved parties pay for the lawsuit. Either the losing side for the total, or if the case is a draw, both their 50% share.

Indian Woman Sues Uber In the US Over Alleged New Delhi Taxi Rape

angel'o'sphere Re:How (153 comments)

Pfft ... that is a stupid question my friend.

An average indian might earn just a tenth of the average american, however:
o the internet works the same there
o they are as smart as you
o they have similar education
o they have newspapers, too

I guess the name of the lawyer was published often enough in the news.
And also: smart lawyers contact YOU if they feel they can make a case and lots of money if they represent you in the USA.

Indian Woman Sues Uber In the US Over Alleged New Delhi Taxi Rape

angel'o'sphere Re:The crime happened to an Indian in India. (153 comments)

"Rules" set up by a company where they like to be sued or to sue are usually void everywhere on the world.
A private person usually can only be sued at the place he is living (or the next best place if a "higher court" is needed) and a company usually can only be sued at the pace it is registered.
Otherwise every company would set up a clause in their "terms of business": 'please sue me in Usbecistan, where the judges do what I pay them for'.

However: the US does everything regarding law pretty weird and archaic.

Indian Woman Sues Uber In the US Over Alleged New Delhi Taxi Rape

angel'o'sphere Re:The crime happened to an Indian in India. (153 comments)

Seems you did not pay attention the last 30 years?
Everyone sues everybody in the USA. The problem is the US courts "accept" such a case, or not. And usually for what ever reason they accept any case.
So I bet this case will be accepted as well. And as all the lawyers earn lots of money: in the USA! And tax it in the USA being the "court of the world" is making the US big money since a few decades.

Most Americans Support Government Action On Climate Change

angel'o'sphere Re:"Support" != actually sacrifice for (347 comments)

Don't know about what used car program you are talking. I'm not an american ... writing half sentences implying something is likely not implying anything to any one.

Point is: capital is hard to destroy. It usually simply switches the owner ... if you don't agree write more coherent and comprehensive :D

Most Americans Support Government Action On Climate Change

angel'o'sphere Re:Human-induced climate change is a hoax (347 comments)

Sorry, you are jsut an idiot.
If someone claimed 30 years ago, we already had sea level risings of meters/yards today, he was an idiot, too.
If you believed that idiot, you are a doubke idiot.

All that changes nothing to the fact that everyone below the afe of 50 who is reaching a normal age will eye witness dramatic changes (in the next 30 years).

replace ... with healthy scientific skepticism and you might convince people like me.
How should I if I start becomming sceptic, convince an idiot like you?
Facts fon't comvince you, but if I step back from thise facts (being sceptic) you suddenly are convinced?
Why don't you simply learn about the facts instead of spreading your ideology?

Most Americans Support Government Action On Climate Change

angel'o'sphere Re:Human-induced climate change is a hoax (347 comments)

What we can 'proof' is not really relevant.
Either you have common sense or not.
When Gallileo dropped his samples from the tower in Pisa, he was well aware he can not drop all kinds of combinations of materials to be certain that gravity works regardless of weight.
Would he have dropped a toddler to see if it falls slower/faster than lead, iron, stone?
I don't guess so. So according to your idea of science it is unproven if toddlers fall slower or faster or at the same rate than any other material.

I don't go into the rest of your argumentation, as it is all wrong.

angel'o'sphere Re:So what? (347 comments)

I don't think table salt is considered food.

Or how long can you live from 100kg table salt compared to 100kg grain?

Funnily the salt my room mate buys is 6million year old salt from the himalaya, nevertheless it has a 'use before' date of less than 3 years.

Sigh.

It costs the tacpayer nothing. It costs the government. The taxpayer has no influence on what the government is payin his taxes. Get a clue.

Capital is not destroyed. It only changes the owner. Get a clue.

Wi-Fi Issues Continue For OS X Users Despite Updates

angel'o'sphere Same on iOS 7 (106 comments)

My iPad 2, running iOS 7 gets disconnected in certain WIFIs quite often.
My iPhone running iOS 6 stays in the same network without any problems.
Since Mac OS X 10.5/10.6 and iOS 5/6, more precisely since roughly half a year, perhaps a year, before Steve Jobs death, the quality and usefulness of Apple Software goes downhill rapidly ... 10.7 does not even offer a hotkey or a menu to switch desktops. And how to activate multiple desktops, you need to google for. I guess a huge amount of people who never had 10.6 don't even know that 10.7 and later supports multiple (virtual) desktops.
Support for AppleScript, for Apples own programs, like TextEdit, is down to a bare minimum ... you can not even insert a clickable link into a text document via the applications API (not sure if that ever worked, though).
My Application lost the ability to search a few days ago, also the intelligent folders (which I rely heavily on in my business) stopped working. A restart of Mail.app changed nothing. I had to reboot.
Backups to time machine, don't work minimum once a week. Error is: (insert computer name) bundle in use. I wonder by whom? Usually I have to reboot the time machine, which you only can do by unplugging it from the power: which is a bad idea for a device/appliance containing a hard drive. (This is all 10.7 on a MacBook Air)
The back ups for my other laptop, running 10.6 got lost half a year ago. Timemachine gave an error: incremental back up not possible, need to make a full backup. Wow, never had I assumed that implies all my old backups are gone.
I could rant for ever ...
MS I mainly hated because the UI is not useable, and the random bugs that showed up REGULARLY.
Now I start hating Apple, too. At least the UI still works better (for me) than Windows.
Probably it is time to build up my own unix based backup solution and write my own apps for basic stuff like Mail and Web. I can not get it that it is still impossible to freeze a browser tab that is in the background completely ...
A few tabs open in Chrome and Safari and the laptop just runs 3h instead of the 'normal' 10h.

Ask Slashdot: When and How Did Europe Leapfrog the US For Internet Access?

angel'o'sphere Re:Government Intervention (468 comments)

Europe, at least the EU, has no government controlled industries anymore since over 20 years, roughly 30 even!

Also there is a huge difference if something is "public owned" and "government controlled".

The only majour "industries" that are still in public hands is the fresh water supply, and hopefully it stays that way.

As they did not manage (yet) to have a profound power grid, I assume they simply have not figured yet how to connect stuff with wires, regardless if fibres or copper ;D

Ask Slashdot: When and How Did Europe Leapfrog the US For Internet Access?

angel'o'sphere Re:Government Intervention (468 comments)

First of all: you should learn to start sentences with a capital letter.

It is really hard to read if everything is lowercase, and I for my Part like it if Nouns are in Capitals, too. Even easier to read, but well, I'm german.

Anyway, in Europe the broad band and fibre lines are NOT OWNED by the government but by the lele communication companies.

However those companies are forced by law to sublicense access to the lines to "competitors".

Works oki so far, not perfect but good enough.

angel'o'sphere Nothing has changed (468 comments)

We europeans still complain about our slow internet connections. Mine e.g. is only 6Mbit :-/
And my friend have only 20Mbit, too. But one has a 120Mbit connection, he also complains a lot :-/

You see, it is like before.

And APL or the more modern derivates of it ... impossible to read. No joke. Either you know the language or you are lost. It is easier to read a random assembly language if you only have a raw idea how assembly works.

Fans and Foes

angel'o'sphere angel'o'sphere writes  |  more than 11 years ago

Hm ...

anybody can shed some light on how friends and foes work.

E.g. if I click on my foe link ... are those people displayed there guys I consider as foe, or are that guys who have descided that they consider me as foe?

I think the pages displayed when you click on friend/foe/freak etc.. should have a headline and an explanaition :-/
