Linux is an Obvious Choice for Automating the Beer-Brewing Process (Video)

denvergeek Re:I brewed beer for a couple of years (112 comments)

Sure it is. So long as you keep your temperatures consistent, use identical grain bills, identical mash times and processes etc.

Or you're the type of brewer that says "fuck it", because usually great beer comes out of the process, even if it's not identical to the last time you made that recipe.

Nuclear Power Prevents More Deaths Than It Causes

denvergeek Re:Long term? (599 comments)

Why must we always blame "the environmentalists"? Fuck, the US has less restrictive environmental regulation compared to Canada and Japan, and those countries have "the environmentalists" as well.

Maybe it's because our rotten fucking system can't build anything in a cost efficient manner, without pork? Maybe some other reason?
