Anomaly Triggers Self-Destruct For SpaceX Falcon 9 Test Flight

flayzernax Re:So it works then? (75 comments)

This is good to see right now. But if commercial space flight ever became a thing like... say the airline industry (and yes they do have a pretty good track record but it's not amazingly stellar...) than the large companies and number/need of the industry/service would out way and overshadow most peoples individual legal complains.

Most likely people might be compensated by their standard, sorry, we blew up your family, but our rocket was really well insured, package.

33 Months In Prison For Recording a Movie In a Theater

flayzernax Re:The real crime here (417 comments)

So... further more philosophically, we shouldn't be granting this kind of power to individuals, none-the-less crazy non-person institutions.

33 Months In Prison For Recording a Movie In a Theater

flayzernax Re:The real crime here (417 comments)

I meant limited monopoly. That is no kind of special privilege that should be leveraged to throw people away in jail. And if you look at the way these limited monopolies have been used. They aren't so limited. Take for example the happy birthday song.

Give me a break. It's a monopoly on the right to distribute a certain resource. Even though that resource is technically supposed to be a specific set of information.

A monopoly is a monopoly. And humans are humans and they try to control all the things. :( grow up AC

33 Months In Prison For Recording a Movie In a Theater

flayzernax Re:Seems like they found something (417 comments)

Yes, people who are reckless and dangerous seem to certainly have no moral impetus. IMO people shouldn't be let off easy for those kinds of mistakes. Then again, it shouldn't be governments passing judgement on them IMO either. But that's a whole other ideological ballgame.

33 Months In Prison For Recording a Movie In a Theater

flayzernax Re:The real crime here (417 comments)

In this case the "victim" was granted a monopoly by us. Big difference between fraud and a monopoly abusing a PRIVILAGE we the people granted it and now they are lobbying all over the world to make international criminal law... oh wait.

This is not a crime and there is no victimization. Nothing is being stolen. The person recording videos just disagrees with what is clearly out of line. It is a civil matter. The worst that can happen in civil matters in the US is one party can force the other into debt or bankruptcy.

NSA Agents Leak Tor Bugs To Developers

flayzernax Re:Yes Google and FB are the ones to protect us? (115 comments)

Seriously I'm all for conspiracy FUD, but this seems legit. Who says everyone is in agreement on the same team? It's project where the code is visible to be scrutinized. This means that whoever is submitting back code is submitting good bug fixes. TOR developers aren't morons.

Scientists Find Traces of Sea Plankton On ISS Surface

Sounds like Nasa is still not quite ready to admit how ubiquitous life is in the cosmos. Lest they get shut down forever and everyone lose their jobs.

Thank you for thinking independently and rationally and sharing that independent and rational thinking with your fellow humans. Very well said.

NSA Says It Foiled Plot To Destroy US Economy Through Malware

flayzernax Sinking the ship to drown a few rats. (698 comments)

Is not saving the US economy.

You mean, you got richer while the poor got poorer and infrastructure needed maintenance, protecting us from a trivial to defend against and non-existent threat.

It's time the American people said fuck no we don't need no big brother to watch over us. I know were about a centaury 2 late, but it's never to late to effect change.

Oh wait Phil Plate is being the retard here nvm... we can move along. No overarching conspiracies. Just one dumb skeptic that has to bring up some old bullshit every time something happens remotely related to their experiences.

Russian Missile Test Seen and Photographed By ISS Astronauts

flayzernax Re:Norway (37 comments)

I find it od why they have to compare what looks like two completely separate phenomena. One is symmetrical, a mono heu, scews, lasted a long time, and blurred, while the other is asymmetrical, doesn't blur, and doesn't fade to a direction, is multi-parted and hued, and lasted a short time.

Is this some rant... whats with the accreditation to Phil Plait. The two incidents are in no way similar. The news agency is dumb.

I really believe the current one is a missile launch. But I am extremely skeptical about the light show over Norway being caused by a missile.

Just some B.S. news story full of ignorance that looks like its trying to still downplay the Norway spiral after all this time.

So either the news person is dumb or they are both dumb and working to erode peoples perceptions of reality.

Conflict Minerals and Cell Phones

flayzernax Re:Oil? (136 comments)

By the way my smoked salmon comes from Thailand imported into California. Seems like it would be cost inefficient to burn all that diesel fuel and run those container ships. When it could be sailed down the coast or shipped overland or by plane from the NW. So its not even just electronics.

flayzernax Re:Oil? (136 comments)

The leading manufacturer of owned assets overseas. How much actually gets made in the USA? Don't BS because the "ledger" goes to some fat ass in wall street.

Who owns Sony-Erikson and where are their manufacturing facilities?

Because you don't. You make it for your neighbors and sell it to your friends. Rather than raping and pillaging the rest of the world through some corporate illusion that Foxconn is a good company.

How to write a Parody: A Letter to Verizon Customers

flayzernax flayzernax writes  |  about a year ago

flayzernax (1060680) writes "Here is a short satire in the form of a F.A.Q. It succinctly sums up issues around the NSA's request for Verizon to release our data. Notice the uniform our president wears is almost identical to that of the Turkish prime minister.

Yesterday it came to light that the National Security Agency has been collecting millions of phone records from you each and every day. Since that news was released, many of you have called the White House with questions and concerns about this new program. To save my time and yours, here are answers to three of the F.A.Q.s (Frequently Asked Questions) we’ve been hearing from you:

Why is Epic a troll?

flayzernax flayzernax writes  |  more than 4 years ago

flayzernax (1060680) writes "Why does replying to a comment with "Epic" as in "That was an epic comment dood your awesome" constitute troll? How old are the geezers here? Lets mod anything troll randomly... and how the heck do you trill down to the comment that says "Epic" and find it and make it troll, nice way to use mod points. How does the rest of the slashdot community feel about this as "Epic" has been around forever... and its not a trolly comment."
