Laser Sniffing Captures Typed Keystrokes From 50-100 Feet

eat here_get gas Re:tinfoil time (146 comments)

for years i've argued that the supposed "UFO" sightings in Ohio, Utah, and Arizona were the Air Force/CIA/whoever testing new aircraft.

mind you, that doesn't mean I don't believe in alien spacecraft...

Did Bat Hitch a Ride To Space On Discovery?

i believe it was Abraham Maslow, author of Malsow's Heirarchy of Needs- our needs are predetermined in order of importance i.e. food, clothing, shelter, and your ability to obtain each need is determined by whether you met the need before it.

it's been a lot of years since college...could be wrong.

Feds Demand Prison For Guns N' Roses Uploader

eat here_get gas Re:You should (590 comments)

...Amazing, isn't it? That the feds and corporate America are actually making the case that it's better to physically rob a store rather than simply downloading an mp3? It's unreal....

in beatiful, scenic new hampshire (usa) where i live, if you drive down a road and the police pull you over while you have an open alcohol container in your car, it's a $2,000.000 fine and jail time. however, pulling a flatlander move and throwing it out the window only cost you a $20.00 -> 200.00 fine. the icing on the cake is in new hampshire there is no distinction between the beer you are drinking and the one buried on the floor/in the truck-bed that you drank last week. or picked up off the road as litter. or someone else threw in your truck-bed while you were at the beach

the fact that the guy was sharing official music should net him some jail time. the fact that it was Guns'n'Roses demands that it not be suspended!

disclaimer: i collect bootlegs and own a torrent Site.

Suspect Freed After Exposing Cop's Facebook Status

eat here_get gas Re:What the hell? (653 comments)

so the fsking perverts that prey on children should be able to use the "it's teh internet and only talk/bravado" at their trial too? after all, what applies to one applies to all...

if you don't believe that that defense hasn't already been tried hundreds of times, you've obviously never watched the "Predator" series on MSNBC.

if you knew the difference between European absinthe and the bullshit they sell in the US, you would have dis-regarded that line as much as I did.

Meteorite Hunters Find the West Texas Fireball

eat here_get gas Re:Qualification (64 comments)

well, not being a phyicist (but interested in physics), i still don't see how the size of an objects matters in relation to the effect rendered. just because an object is larger (more mass, right?), it's effect is larger as well?

Meteorite Hunters Find the West Texas Fireball

eat here_get gas Re:Qualification (64 comments)

i thought i knew what the Butterfly Theory (or more properly the "Chaos Theory") involved, but invoking it the way you did in your post makes me wonder if I mis-understand the actual implications. care to elaborate as to how the size of an object influences said Effect?

Microsoft Says No Profit In Vista-XP Downgrades

eat here_get gas Re:I'm Confused (315 comments)

there's something wrong with your math, but i'm not a mathematician so I can't point it out. however: if the price of OS Y is included in computer X's price, then doesn't Y = X? or isn't Y a sub-set of X? using your equation, Y = Y1... the only part that makes sense is X + Y1 = $$$$$ somewhere...
