California City Considers Restarting Desalination Plant To Fight Drought

bancho Re:Radiation! (420 comments)

Ever been to Utah? Ra-di-a-tion. Yes, indeed. You hear the most outrageous lies about it. Half-baked goggle-box do-gooders telling everybody it's bad for you. Pernicious nonsense. Everybody could stand a hundred chest X-rays a year. They ought to have them, too. When they canceled the project it almost did me in. One day my mind was full to bursting. The next day - nothing. Swept away. But I showed them. I had a lobotomy in the end. Friend of mine had one. Designer of the neutron bomb. You ever hear of the neutron bomb? Destroys people - leaves buildings standing. Fits in a suitcase. It's so small, no one knows it's there until - BLAMMO. Eyes melt, skin explodes, everybody dead. So immoral, working on the thing can drive you mad. That's what happened to this friend of mine. So he had a lobotomy. Now he's well again.

bancho Re:What's the big deal (421 comments)

For what it's worth we have the Queen too, but she doesn't really count since she isn't there on merit.

I agree with you, but laughed hard at the thought of (modern day) royalty being "merit based". I understand what you meant though so carry on.

It's ADS (Apple Derangement Syndrome). It can be comical at times, or it can manifest like you've seen here.

Keyless Remote Entry For Cars May Have Been Cracked

bancho Re:I have an exploit that works on all cars (398 comments)

Bricks are heavy. I believe an old spark plug works in place of the brick, and has the added benefit of fitting in a pocket.

No, the Tesla Model S Doesn't Pollute More Than an SUV

bancho Re:Let's compare the two (559 comments)

* Can you power a Tesla without a very polluting nickel mine?

Yes. The Tesla model S doesn't use NiMH batteries, so you could power a Tesla without a very polluting nickel mine.

N. Carolina May Ban Tesla Sales To Prevent "Unfair Competition"

bancho Re:Cherry-picking (555 comments)

If I'm not mistaken, it outsold all of the 7 series, S-class and A8's *combined*. While still not bread and butter 5 series, E-class and A6 numbers, it's not bad.

We've been working with angry mobs for a lot longer than 300 years. Technological progress just lets us create larger angrier mobs much faster than has been possible before.

Scientists Have Re-Cloned Mice To the 25th Generation

bancho Re:Copyright (134 comments)

I think using DNA as evidence in court would become problematic. What if the clone was a psycho? Conversely, what if the clone were a sane upstanding person and the DNA donor were a serial killer?
