The $1,200 DIY Gunsmithing Machine

bigfinger76 Re:ugh (352 comments)

Actually, the "gun show loophole" has been shown not to be the problem as only a small percentage of guns obtained this way end up being used in crimes. And all FFLs at all gun shows in the US must "background check". The "loophole" you're trying to sniff out here are private sales.

How Our Botched Understanding of "Science" Ruins Everything

bigfinger76 Re:In lost the will to live ... (794 comments)

I'd say the dude probably doesn't dig "pain", and therefore, due to the empathy he mentioned, assumes others don't either? Is this really that hard to grasp?

Net Neutrality Comments Surge Past 1.7M, an All-Time Record For the FCC

bigfinger76 what's the consensus? (81 comments)

I've read a few articles on /. about net neutrality, and I couldn't discern any consensus regarding it's overall positivity or negativity. Of course, I understand how a lack could be abused, stifling competition for eyeballs. But some of what I read, written by people actually in the communications industry, made seemingly good arguments against it. The more I read, the more ambivalent I became. It seems less cut and dried than, say, arguments against SOPA. Anyone have any serious material to read regarding the more technical aspects? I know that bias is inescapable, but I'd like some more informed information; John Oliver's delivery doesn't cut it. I'd greatly appreciate it.

There are other factors, I assure you. They're just not PC and they're very uncomfortable to bring up.

Only thermophilic composting can kill diseases, and even then only the material in the core. A composting toilet usually doesn't have the critical mass.
