New Nicotine Vaccine May Succeed Where Others Have Failed

ericloewe Re:Required vaccine? (178 comments)

Since there isn't enough evidence to disprove H0: A.C. is deluded and is actually addicted, I won't reject it.

New Nicotine Vaccine May Succeed Where Others Have Failed

ericloewe Re:Required vaccine? (178 comments)

Not everybody who enjoys smoking is an addict, believe it or not. Some people just enjoy an occasional smoke. I'm one of them..

That what they all say. Doesn't make it true, though.

2015 Means EU Tax Increase On Cloud Storage, E-books and Smartphone Applications

ericloewe Re:$1B in new tax revenue! (164 comments)

There are several issues here:

Where should taxation occur? This can be debated, but is not the object of the discussion.

Police brutality: it's shameful and unacceptable, but it's tangentially related, at best. Claiming that taxation caused it is absurd.

Tax evasion: he should've been prosecuted for this, no doubt there. Police reaction was shameful, as I've said, but it doesn't make him innocent.

You are arguing beside the point. Nobody said the cop reacted appropriately and it is frankly irrelevant to the discussion at hand.
tl;dr - strawman

Once you realize that Eric Garner was killed over taxes [...] Don't ban cigarettes, tax them.[...]

Non sequitur. The former is an argument against the latter.

You're clearly living in a fantasy world. You sound a bit like Dennis:

How is a forced sale different from a tax? Spare the philosophical nonsense, it only serves to waste money. Call it a tax and pay trivially less.

Don't be a fucking moron. If you buy something, you pay sales tax. This just makes edge cases related to the internet more sensible.

Tesla About To Start Battery-Swap Pilot Program

ericloewe Re:More Tesla lies..... (133 comments)

A thousand miles on a tank of gas... Maybe a Sherman full of gas, most certainly not an 80 liter tank (very high estimate).

The best you'll get from an Audi will be around 6 liters/100km (again, very high estimate). That means you'd get roughly 1300km from said tank. So you're some 300km short of those imaginary 1000 miles.

Show me a car that gets 6l/100km *and* has an 80l gas tank and I'll sell you a bridge.

Tesla About To Start Battery-Swap Pilot Program

ericloewe Re:That's quite a charge... (133 comments)

Difference is you can charge it pretty much anywhere where people will give you/sell you electricity. There's no point in swapping a battery if recharge time isn't critical or if it's a significant detour.
