Ninety-Nine Percent of the Ocean's Plastic Is Missing

drpimp Re:It's sinking. (304 comments)

Fish actually DO eat plastic and yes they cannot digest it. Ask any fisherman who fishes artificial lures. Sinking is still a contributing possibility as well.

White House Pressures Legislators Into Gutting USA FREEDOM Act

drpimp Re:What does Obama know that we don't? (284 comments)

I think you listed them in ascending order of likelihood.

Maybe 5 is "he was just playing us for suckers on the campaign trail."

Isn't your suggestion what ALL politicians do? Obammers isn't any different.

FBI Need Potheads To Fight Cybercrime

drpimp Re:Let me know when you win that war on drugs? (319 comments)

If a hacker smoke pots in the woods and no one is around, does that mean it didn't happen? I am sure if you dug deep enough many of your neighbors are doing it at least occasionally; you just don't know about it. The mere fact that it's illegal most people don't go around with a blunt lit up promoting their usage.

Bill Gates Patents Detecting, Responding To "Glassholes"

drpimp Or another obvious one ... (140 comments)

Like trying to use your laptop in a public area (airport perhaps) that has cameras virtually everywhere. Which then would cause the user to either override the blur to cancel or not use their machine. What we need is a glasshole app that works with a blurring technology to decode the blurred screen. That way only the user with the glasses can read their screen. This could be allow customization to the user with some sort of private key shared with the glasses or also another type of public key shared among anyone who has that key can see the picture.

Bill Gates Patents Detecting, Responding To "Glassholes"

drpimp So ... (140 comments)

So this glasshole walks into a bar. I don't know what happened after that. It was either the intruding camera detection blur or the alcohol but all I then remember is talking about closing the analog hole and I soon realized I might be in a situation not to my liking.

An SSD for Your Current Computer May Save the Cost of a New One (Video)

drpimp Unless of course ... (353 comments)

You browse or use an app with 50+ tabs open at any given time ... true story my co-worker does this in almost every single app he has open that has tabs. It is sad ... that is all.

HealthCare.gov Can't Handle Appeals of Errors

Or instead, maybe they should have hired architects, engineers, and/or developers and not "coders" or "programmers".

New Hampshire Cops Use Taser On Woman Buying Too Many iPhones

drpimp Re:Unauthorized export resale? (936 comments)

To be fair, the cops did pull out their iPhone thinking there would be an app for that but surprisingly there wasn't so the taser was the next closest thing.

Lab-Made Eggs Produce Healthy Mice

drpimp Re:Are they as nutritious as organic mice??? (81 comments)

Are the genes actually modified? Or are the stem cells inhibited to use already pre-coded information for developing into eggs. The details therein define a difference but I haven't looked at the research enough to actually determine if your statement has validity.

Is Phoenix the Next Silicon Valley?

drpimp Re:LOL (555 comments)

Sure we aren't talking about Alabama here. ASU has some of the hottest college chicks in the US. If you got out of the basement now and then you might have known that. Albeit that has nothing to do with this topic so why Phoenix you ask ... because it's easier to melt silicon there? DUH! /ducks
