Linus Torvalds: "GCC 4.9.0 Seems To Be Terminally Broken"

angel'o'sphere Re:Strawman argument (417 comments)

What exactly does 'abusive' mean when a european kernel crafter is accusing a 'free speech' american compiler crafter that his compiler is utter shit?
Either the compiler is 'utter shit' and the accusation is a fact and proclaiming so is free speech or it is not, then it might be considered 'abusive'.

Report: Nuclear Plants Should Focus On Risks Posed By External Events

angel'o'sphere Re:if you looked it up, you'd know (93 comments)

I know how carbon dating works.
And rest asured the carnon dating of animals living around Fukushima womt be affected by the desaster.
In 10,000 years their remains look exactly the same regardless if the disaster had happend or not.

Hence: the one who knows nothing about carbon dating obviously is YOU.

In France, Most Comments on Gaza Conflict Yanked From Mainstream News Sites

angel'o'sphere Re:maybe (339 comments)

I'm not an expert on female genital mutilation, but certainly the problem is not 'wide spread through the middle easts', that is simply nonsense.

Some anti 'east' propaganda of the US? Sounds like it, could not win the wars and now they spread this bullshit?

Since thousands of years this is a practice of african tribes, and now suddenly in the current 'conflict situation' people claim it happens in islamic / persian / kurdish as well? How should that even be possible? Kurdistan is thousands of miles away from the regions in africa where this is common.

The masters, the slave owners, the conquerers adopt a 'black' custom? When should that have happened. Thousand years ago when the middle east still raided africa, or just recently when it fit into anti islamic propaganda? How should that have happened? They hate their custums and look down on it but incorporate FGM? Sorry that asumption is retarded and only shows that the west has no idea about the Islam and no intention to cooperate with their culture.

Sorry,
a) this is a wikipedia article, which makes it not really reliable
b) regarding Iran and Iraq they especially mention the Kurdish parts.
That is nonsense, why should kurds mitilate their females? Neither are the Kurds particular african nor particular anti female nor paticular islamic. Sounds like anti kurdisch propaganda to me ... I know plenty of Kurds in real live, many live in germany. I doubt there are such cases at all.

Report: Nuclear Plants Should Focus On Risks Posed By External Events

angel'o'sphere Re:already done (93 comments)

With 'natural' radiation people obviously mean background radiation.
Not C14 or other minimal intake.

Comparing the 'natural' intake of C14 and other elements 'in a normal' amount with the levels in Fukushima makes you a moron.

Sigh, and then you bring up flight exposure to cosmic rays and compare it with Fukushima chemical elements ...

Cosmic Ray != radioactive iod or caesium ... go back to school or shut up, moron.

angel'o'sphere Re:already done (93 comments)

If the outside power was not cut, the plant wasn't doomed ... or was it?

Are you trying to make an idiot out of yourself?

You claimed the plant was not at all affected by the earthquake, which is wrong.

There was plenty of structural damage by a quake nearly 500 miles away ...

The rest we all know, not much to talk about. Except your ignorance ofc.

Report: Nuclear Plants Should Focus On Risks Posed By External Events

angel'o'sphere Re:already done (93 comments)

It won't.
The reactors at Fukushima did not feel anything from the earth quake.
They where 450 miles away from the epicenter. They suffered because surrounding pillars for electric wires collapsed ... they got damaged enough to be broken beyond repair and finally they got hit by a tsunami destroying the emergency cooling.
So an earthquake that was at the site certainly below 6 on the Richter Scale already did server damage.
The news that is survived a 9.x quake is a myth, the 9.x quake was as far away as the distance between New York and Cleveland Conneticut.
So you have a quake in Conneticut and a plant in New York fails (mainly because the plower lines around it got nocked down) and you claim: the plant survived a quake ...
Sorry it did not.
Even without the tsunami nocking out the emergency generators, the plant was doomed.
Even more important: Japans government failed to place there alternative diesel engines. Can't be so hard to drive them in with trucks, every military has such things. Even if we had needed to fly them in from Germany with Trans All's and using tanker air planes for refueling and parachuting them down would have been a no brainer and likely done in 36h if there had not been a catastrophic put your head into the sand no nothing happened in the end it will not be so bad ... stupid attitude.
With swift reaction the rest of the world had saved the plants from disaster (if not the cooling pipes are/where broken themselves)
Can't be so hard to bring a couple of ships to anchor and power the cooling or bring in trucks or really parachute down emergency equipment.
IMHO the plant manager and the managers of the company should be shot at a wall for not disclosing the severity of the situation in time.

Report: Nuclear Plants Should Focus On Risks Posed By External Events

angel'o'sphere Re:already done (93 comments)

Natural radioactivity is mainly something that hits you from the 'outside' there is a rock or even the bricks of your house that emits something ... it hits your skin.
The exception of course is Radon, a gas produced by decay and radioactive itself. So houses build of particular bricks emit Radon, you inhale it, so it is inside of you. But also Radon easy escapes from the building, it is not building up a concentration.

Here we are talking about stuff that is getting inside of your body, and there it will kill you.

Your body is full of potassium-40, carbon-14, thorium, uranium and their decay products. If you're so scared of radioactivity that you must demand Cs-137 to decay to one-millionth of the current concentrations before you feel safe, then go commit suicide. There is no place in the solar system that will satisfy your demands. You, sir, are a lunatic.

The lunatic is you, as you have no clue.
First of all a healthy person has no Uranium or Thorium in his body.
Second, you are again mixing up external radiation by natural sources with radioactive elements incorporated into the body, you simply have no clue how to distinguish one from the other. So you don't qualify for this discussion.

Beyond me is why you claim such nonsense: This means that it will be dispersed in the environment at a much greater rate than it will be concentrated in humans. In fact, it is not even detectable around Fukushima Daiichi.
Sorry, you are an idiot and troll, should delete the rest of my post, as that claim of yours nails it.
The current evacuation zone is something like 40km around the plant. The actual contaminated area is a stripe going for 300km north east from the plant covering Osaka, Tokyo etc.
The fallout is measurable every where in north Japan. You are simply a complete idiot, good day moron!

Soccer Superstar Plays With Very Low Brain Activity

angel'o'sphere Re:Duh (142 comments)

Perhaps we are 'crosstalking' each other or the article, which I only skimmed uses a different terminology.

Muscle memory as we athletes call it, is a a very special memory close to the muscles involved, it is not in the brain.

Signal speed from the brain to a muscle is close to 1/10th of a second ... that would never work.

but it's in the brain. Most likely in optimized synaptic networks in or around the motor control area, but the specific location and mechanism hasn't been nailed down.
Perhaps you mean something different with the term 'muscle memory' then?
Muscle memory is close to the muscles, it is hard wired into the nervous system attached to those muscles. Easy to test with an amputated limb and a simple 'correct' modulated electric impulse.
The brain area we both are talking about is known since decades. Your 'has not been nailed' down point is wrong.
It is an area in the brain that resembles a walnut sized are in the brain that looks on a positron emitting tomography like an embryo. It physically resembles the human body (embryo posture) in shape.
If you practice certain activities like playing guitar or piano the corresponding area in that region grows. BUT: that is not muscle memory ... that is the brain part of a skill.

Sorry: I studied this or I'm studying this since 30 years ... unfortunately I lack the proper english terms, I guess you can google for your self for references. After all, hence my complained about said article: all this is well known since ages ...

Two South African Cancer Patients Receive 3D Printed Titanium Jaw Implants

angel'o'sphere Re:Cancer Hope (68 comments)

Well, our GP might be a moron, who knows?
But mixing affect with effect is a common typo. On most keyboards the letters are close together.
Also it is possible he is not a native english speaker (very likely when he says: the cancer is arrested) for those it is common to mix up words, which sound or are spelled similar.

Two South African Cancer Patients Receive 3D Printed Titanium Jaw Implants

angel'o'sphere Re:Chemisty (68 comments)

It is not only handling/manufacturing of Titan that is difficult.
Deposited worthwhile of exploiting are RARE. Yes, in total our planet is rich on Titanium ... it is the 9th abundant element on earth ...
Reusing shavings from milling is certainly 10 if not 100 times more easy than refining Titanium from raw 'ores'.

angel'o'sphere 80% waste? (68 comments)

So the article wants to tell us that in traditional milling they have to mill away 80% of the original block?
And then they used to throw it away as 'waste'?
Somehow I doubt that.

angel'o'sphere Re:Should Hate be left alone? (339 comments)

In some way it masks a 'terrible problem' however the fact that we know about the huge amount of deletions makes it visible as well.

The problem behind the problem is: the laws go both ways. If the moderators of the publishers would not delete defaming posts, the publishers would be liable for publishing racist or hate speech, hence they easily would get sued.

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