Maldives Government Holds Undersea Cabinet Meeting

clandonald You are full of shit. (271 comments)

I bet your precious CO2 was to blame for this too. CO2 is heavier than air not lighter. So explain this and stop whining about Katrina it wasn't the worst hurricane your just one of the sheeple that buy into any propaganda presented.
Before Katrina, the deadliest hurricane to strike the United States was an unnamed category 4 storm that struck Galveston, Texas, in 1900. The September 8 storm claimed at least 8,000 lives (some estimates place the number as high as 12,000). Hurricane strength is measured on the Saffir-Simpson scale, where category 1 is the weakest (with sustained winds of at least 74 miles per hour and a storm surge of 4 to 5 feet above normal) and category 5 is the strongest (with sustained winds of more than 155 miles per hour and a storm surge higher than 18 feet). The United States has been hit by three category 5 storms since record-keeping began. The first was a Labor Day hurricane, which struck the Florida Keys in 1935; 408 people died. The second was Camille, which hit Mississippi and southeast Louisiana in 1969, claiming 256 lives. Hurricane Andrew, which struck south Miami-Dade County, Florida, in late-August 1992, was measured as a category 4 storm at the time, but the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) reclassified it in 2002 as a category 5 storm. Andrew claimed more than 100 lives and devastated a wide area, mostly around the town of Homestead, Florida.

The Medical Benefits of Carbon Monoxide

clandonald Re:Gee whiz! (177 comments)

I personally think homeopathy is bull. But why is the above post modded troll? How is it a troll? It's an opinion. Modding someone down because of a difference of opinion means you are either intolerant or have a hidden agenda to push. Why is any post not pro pharma is always modded down?

Yah but they are giving the rats a pill that hasn't been invented yet. They are giving them gas so your point is moot.

The Medical Benefits of Carbon Monoxide

clandonald Why try to make a drug? (177 comments)

That will make carbon monoxide in your body when the gas is readily available. Carbon monoxide might be beneficial but why not make a pill that makes nitrous oxide in your blood so the dentist doesn't have to pull out the mask. There is probably a lot more money to make off the pill. A wiff of bottled carbon monoxide won't cost an arm and leg.

Texas Teen Arrested Under New Online Harassment Law

clandonald You can't mod me down. (494 comments)

It might hurt my feelings and then you goto jail.
Hurt feeling is a stupid basis for anything my wifes feelings get hurt if I tell her to wake up in the morning. And if I text her back that I'm not going to the bar to get her wings at midnight then her feelings are hurt. Well she is 250 LB because since we got married she does nothing but eat and sit on her ass. And any effort to get her to do anything hurts her feelings so she has to eat more just to show me she can get even fatter.
Hurt feelings are stupid people need to grow up and stop being such wuussies.

Hands-On Look At the BlackBerry Storm 2

clandonald Re:No Way... (213 comments)

Rim took a lesson from MS with how the memory is managed. It sucks. At first I thought MS was to blame for Media player crashing all the time then I realized it was a memory issue. RIM needs to create a swap partition either using the remainder of the onboard memory or on the SD card. But overall the Storm isn't to bad of a phone if you don't mind rebooting like it's Win 98.

Explaining Corporate Culture Through "The Office"

clandonald If you want to succeed being a kiss ass is a given (224 comments)

But this article is like using Startrek to explain scientific principles and a reference for first contact. And we could even call it the "Kirk principle".

For Some Medical Workers, a Flu Shot Or Possible Job Loss

clandonald Re:Why is it you can't sue. (541 comments)

Well an X-Box can't kill you but a vaccine can so maybe if the pharmaceuticals shouldn't make a product that they can't stand behind. I just read on the CDC website that mercury isn't harmful in vaccines well that is an outright lie mercury is very dangerous. Mercury is such a highly reactive toxic agent that it is difficult to identify its specific mechanism of damage, and much remains unknown about the mechanism.[11] It damages the central nervous system, endocrine system, kidneys, and other organs, and adversely affects the mouth, gums, and teeth. Exposure over long periods of time or heavy exposure to mercury vapor can result in brain damage and ultimately death. Mercury and its compounds are particularly toxic to fetuses and infants. Women who have been exposed to mercury in pregnancy have sometimes given birth to children with serious birth defects (see Minamata disease). Mercury exposure in young children can have severe neurological consequences, preventing nerve sheaths from forming properly. Mercury inhibits the formation of myelin. So can you tell me why the CDC says pregnant women need the vaccine and not to worry about the mercury it won't hurt them or the baby. With outright lies like that it's no wonder why they won't take responsibility for their product.

For Some Medical Workers, a Flu Shot Or Possible Job Loss

clandonald Re:Why is it you can't sue. (541 comments)

Let me explain it to you another way. Microsoft makes the X-Box which it sells a a loss (when are vaccines sold at a loss) then Microsoft makes an assload of money selling games for the X-Box. At the end of the year Microsoft has a huge profit. Now by your logic the government should take money from taxpayers to give to Microsoft so they don't lose money on producing the X-Box hardware. The huge profits the company makes is irrelevant and why not go all the way and mandate that all Americans must buy an X-Box.

but I make less money so I should be subsidised by the government because of low profit margins. Google phamaceutical profits and the very first thing to pop up is. The pharmaceutical industry is among the most profitable in the world, with profits nearly four times the average

clandonald supply demand (541 comments)

Add to that the fact that vaccines are a low margin product - per the supply/demand curve. Really? Didn't the government award contracts to the makers of the swine flu virus worth billions? How is there a low profit margin? Especially when drug companies have no liability for their product? How many other industries are exempt from liability by the government?
