GM, NHTSA Delayed Volt Warnings To Prop Up Sales

dunnius Electric Pinto? (344 comments)

Cool, another Pinto, but electric this time. I'm sure the story is overblown, but anything that stores energy is going to be a fire risk.

RPG Heroes Are Jerks

dunnius Re:What the fuck? (119 comments)

I am complaining and I have left. I actually logged on to say that this does not belong on Slashdot, even though it is funny. I am here because I was sent a link to this.

Google Unveils First Android Phone

dunnius Re:Title finally write good (546 comments)

So the parent gets modded up for pointing out a typo in the summary, but I pointed out a typo in a previous article and got modded down as offtopic. The moderators are rather inconsistent. The funny thing is that the typo in the previous article is still there.

IPv6 and the Business-Case Skeptics

dunnius Re:IPv6 will happen when China demands it (297 comments)

Then perhaps it might be prudent to instead use IPv8 so that we won't have to change the system again for a really long time.

Only IPv6? We could have had a IP V8. :-D

New Study Links Plastics To Heart Disease, Diabetes

dunnius Re:BPA can cause more than that. (266 comments)

It was based off a study that was done some time ago. One of the findings was that for females, once they go past a certain weight (I don't remember what it was, and I don't feel like looking this up) they hit puberty. The CNN article you mention mentions obesity possibly being a factor for the early puberty. I think it must be referencing that study.

And people wonder why girls are hitting puberty so much earlier now.

That is because children have much better nutrition than there used to be. As a result, they are able to reach puberty sooner because of better health.
