Study Finds Link Between Artificial Sweeteners and Glucose Intolerance

flex941 Re:Study evaluated sacharin vs glucose (294 comments)

I actually use it (Stevia syrup) as sugar replacement at my work place. It tastes... it tastes. It forces you to use less. I only use one drop per coffee. That way I can't taste it too much but it certainly makes the drink sweeter. What I asked is if anybody can give links or whatever to similar studies about using Stevia as sweetener.

Toyota Announces Plans For Fuel Cell Car By 2015

flex941 Re:they've had this place since what 2010? (115 comments)

I didn't talk about solar. I don't care if you are or are not against solar. Or wind or whatever. I talked abut nuclear (which is probably the best option now for mass electricity creation, yes) and the dangers associated with it some people never want to (fully) admit or just think you can engineer yor way out of those problems. Oh yes, you probably can solve imaginable technical problems. Problem is not everything you can imagine. And then there will be always the human factor (careless, greedy, bored etc).

So, ... until it goes kaboom! Or slowly leaky-leaky.

Why people always have to get off-topic if something isn't to their liking? You probably are a good candidate to be a politician.

Toyota Announces Plans For Fuel Cell Car By 2015

flex941 Re:they've had this place since what 2010? (115 comments)

It didn't talk about nuclear waste. Accidents happen in nuclear facilities. It really can go kaboom. But yes ... mostly it's some simpler accident. But even "simple" accidents without big kaboom can turn into major events during following years. Look at Fukushima.

Ant that waste management and monitoring... c'mon .. if .. they ... simply ... monitor ... it. Yeah right. Keep in mind that those who monitor are human beings. And a human being has its flaws. Those flaws sometimes result in cutting corners or just some stupid decisions. Yes, the end result is not kaboom but ... destroying of environment. And what is a human without (functioning) environment? Dead meat. Dead. Rotten. Meat.

The point is. Nuclear is really-really green. Until something bad happens. And then it's worse than anything else. And give it some time - and a bad thing will happen. You know there is not one plane that's still floating in the sky. They all come down sooner or later. Nicely or not so nicely. Don't downplay this.

Lavabit Case Unsealed: FBI Demands Companies Secretly Turn Over Crypto Keys

flex941 Re:What moron judge allowed this? (527 comments)

I would say that e-mail headers are a part of the contents (the headers and contents are transferred after DATA command in SMTP stream) and should be protected information. The only thing that shouldn't be protected is what is used in "MAIL FROM:", "RCPT TO:", etc SMTP commands. Public information needed for mail routing and displayed prominently in every log file on the way.

flex941 confusing look (182 comments)

When somebody asks me about Facebook, I give them a confused look. That doesn't mean I do not use internet. Actually most of my days are filled with internet from dusk till dawn and then some extra.

NSA Shares Intel On Americans With Israel

flex941 Re:Legal and NSA (328 comments)

Freshly elected officials are to naive to fire bureaucrats in a really timely manner. You know, they still believe in the goodness of humanity. And that will destroy them in one and a half of a week.

The Greatest Keyboard Shortcut Ever

flex941 Re:Huh? What? (506 comments)

Fair, but that doesn't mean this should be featured as an article on Slashdot. C'mon! There are plenty of webpages/blogs for that 99% of population, some of them even talking about computers and how to use them too. New generation of superficial wannabe reporters and editors recruited by Slashdot too now? This is madness. The world is really going down the ****hole.

Bradley Manning Says He's Sorry

flex941 Re:I'd be sorry (496 comments)

I've not read it. And I don't know why. Beacause it seems from the comments from everywhere that it's the description of everything happening now. I've thought this for years. So no excuse for nor reading it. But still, yes, I've not read it.

Obama on Surveillance: "We Can and Must Be More Transparent"

flex941 I had this thought... (537 comments)

Everywhere there are idiots running their countries. Almost all of them. But you my dear US friends have the Supreme Idiot filling the position.

Yeah I know, this is definitely trolling, but I had to get this off my chest. I'm sorry, though.

A Cold Look at Cold Fusion Claims: Why E-Cat Looks Like a Hoax

The comparison is made based on price not the actual cost paid by ... whoever. Everyone or not.

A Cold Look at Cold Fusion Claims: Why E-Cat Looks Like a Hoax

flex941 Re:Sad legitimate researchers (426 comments)

The price for energy created from fossil fuels mostly does not account for the cost of destroying Earth during the production of such energy. So it's quite silly to compare today's market prices of different energy production methods.
