Pentagon Reportedly Hushed Up Chemical Weapons Finds In Iraq

bongey Re:WMDs? Chemical weapons? Wait, what? (376 comments)

Mine is techinally not a autoimmune disease, is a immune disorder. No my disease I don't think was caused by the what was in the water. I do think it was triggered by the anthrax vaccine I was given multiple times. My good friend developed anema shortly after the first deployment to iraq. There was one news story on cnn about the detection of blood agents in the water. I don't know if it was actually blood agents, we were never told what with all the tests coming back positive in mulitple locations.

Pentagon Reportedly Hushed Up Chemical Weapons Finds In Iraq

bongey Re:WMDs? Chemical weapons? Wait, what? (376 comments)

From someone that was there. Can you please fucking stop with we shouldn't have gone, is over. Now that I have developed autoimmune disease, which is hereditary, when no fucking one in my family out of 200 people has it. I cannot claim I was exposed to anything, well because it didn't happen. I know good fucking well almost everyone in Baghdad in 2003 was exposed to blood agents in the water. The water tested positive multiple times, but do you here about it anywhere?

Texas Health Worker Tests Positive For Ebola

bongey Re:Everybody Panic! (421 comments)

Nope I was right, the CDC is adding a bleach/water spray down on exiting now as part of the official protocol. No the CDC did fuck up, this should have been out months ago, not after "oh shit" after a nurse caught it.

Texas Health Worker Tests Positive For Ebola

bongey Re:Sensationalized risk. (421 comments)

Your assumption is that ebola does not spread well and does not mutate. Ebola isn't going to come to the US but they really need to change the decontamination to have bleach water spray down before taking off the gear, shit that is what is being done in Africa, and this is the US.

Decontamination shower is part of the protocol in Africa, but not in the US. The doctors in the US need to be trained better on this.

A water/bleach spray down at entrace and exit before taking off gear. The spray down is part of the process in Africa but not in the US , which is just dumb.

NVIDIA Launches Maxwell-Based GeForce GTX 980 and GeForce GTX 970 GPUs

bongey Re:Only 4 displays, sticking to AMD. (125 comments)

No you are still limited to 4 displays, NVIDIA did a dick move and limits it to 4 in the driver. You have to have quadro card to have more than 4 displays. Note when I first got my 2 gtx 760 cards I could drive 6 displays, and then a driver update and they limited to 4 displays even in SLI.

If you want more than 4 , you have to pay up from the quadro series. I had more than four in SLI on GTX 760 cards , until they did a driver update and set the max to 4.

IPhone 6 really does have a bending problem

bongey bongey writes  |  about a month ago

bongey (974911) writes "The new IPhone 6 doesn’t bend easier because it is thinner or aluminum, but to a poorly designed reinforcement bracket. The user alleras4 has very detailed break down, which really boils down the reinforcement bracket creates a level arm that makes it weaker, instead of supporting the case. The mounting location of the bracket is exactly where unboxtherapy bent the iphone 6 bent the Iphone 6 easily in multiple videos. Apple and Consumer Reports fail to test when force is applied off centered."

NHTSA wants Brake/Throttle override

bongey bongey writes  |  more than 2 years ago

bongey (974911) writes "The NHTSA wants vehicles to have override system if both the brake and throttle are depressed at the same time to improve safety. The rule would apply to all vehicles under 10,000 lbs.
There seems to be some issues in performance cars and scenarios where depressing the brake and throttle is desired. Also if person cannot figure to depress the brake when the throttle gets stuck should they really be driving?"
