Polio Causes Global Health Emergency

dullertap 10% * 417 = ??? (126 comments)

Seriously, what the hell? 417 cases of polio last year reported. This has to be on par with the number of motorcycle deaths due to flying mammals.

Did the Ignition Key Just Die?

dullertap Re:Help! Help! (865 comments)

Works fine in any car I've ever driven. One cannot necessarily remove the key, but you quickly notice that the engine turns off and you lose power braking and power steering.

"Smart" Gun Seller Gets the Wrong Kind of Online Attention

dullertap Re:Gun nuts (1374 comments)

Nothing like a heartfelt sermon from somebody who has likely never seen a gun in their life.

Operation Wants To Mine 10% of All New Bitcoins

dullertap Re:I admire their spunk, but... (275 comments)

How did you write such a long and seemingly well thought out response when you know so little about this subject? The mining is essentially the transaction log of all bitcoins. In addition to that being a beneficial side-effect, it's an extremely elegant solution to the problem of a centralized clearing house.

Deaf people can still 'feel' noise. Go to a concert sometime.

The First Universal Quantum Network

dullertap Re:Call me when we have instant transfer of data (156 comments)

I'm constantly measuring my particle. Spin up is zero. Spin down is one. How is this any different than, say, Morse code? Observing spin does not destroy entanglement. Quantum entanglement appears to propagate at thousands of times the speed of light.

The First Universal Quantum Network

dullertap Re:Call me when we have instant transfer of data (156 comments)

This comment is wrong. Imagine that the sender and receiver were sufficiently far apart, say a million light years. Quantum entanglement would allow them to have faster than light communication even if it was being "encrypted" and "decrypted" with a commodore 64.

Uh, yes you can. Entanglement is order of magnitude faster than the speed of light. It has nothing to with light however. Experiments have been done to see how "fast" it is.

dullertap Heisenberg Disagrees? (156 comments)

Doesn't the Heisenberg Uncertainty principle kind of say that when these machines are determining spins of particles, that they cause them to change? ie entropy?

Sergey Brin: Windows Is "Torturing Users"

dullertap Re:laptop desktop for business? (645 comments)

I'm responding from an airport lounge after two weeks in a different country with no permanent office. I do this every three to four weeks. Any more questions?

I was referring to the apples to oranges argument of desktops to laptops that this article seems to make. I understand that laptops are portable computers.

Sergey Brin: Windows Is "Torturing Users"

dullertap laptop desktop for business? (645 comments)

Why would people need to move from Windows computers (presumably PCs) to Chrome laptops? Are there any good reasons why a business user would want to be using a laptop? I know I wouldn't.

Urine Test For Autism

dullertap Re:Embrace the difference! (228 comments)

Do you really believe what you are saying? First of all, natural selection and human beings ain't what it used to be, bub. Do you think all the mental/physical disorders that we more or less ALLOW to exist are providing some sort of benefit to our race? Come on guy!

Police Officers Seek Right Not To Be Recorded

dullertap Re: A police officer's view (1123 comments)

This is absolutely ridiculous for 1 reason-- In a court case, the word of the officer trumps that of a citizen if they are in disagreement. Therefore, a camera is the only defense a citizen would have against a corrupt police officer. Obviously not all cops are bad, but retarded laws like these perpetuate what corruption there is.
