Is Chernobyl Still Dangerous? Was 60 Minutes Pushing Propaganda?

flyneye Re:60 Minutes Pushing Propaganda? (409 comments)

60 min. barely had any credibility when Cronkite worked it.
There isn't a single news program out there, from national to local, that isn't involved in ratings chasing SPIN.
Just because you want news, the facts, to know what really happened, doesn't mean you get it.
You get whatever keeps their program afloat, news doesn't provide enough security to run a show.
Try this experiment; Want the news, as hard as you can in one hand, shit as much as you can in the other hand, now, observe which hand has more in it.
And that's the way it is; Dec.3 2014......

Obama Offers Funding For 50,000 Police Body Cameras

flyneye Re:Consider this (262 comments)

No, no. No action, nothing to see in victims misery.
I'm talkin live action CRIME. Bad boys, bad boys whatcha gonna do? They can blur the innocent, hell, the gov't redacts docs, no difference.
I don't want to see every damn kitten up a tree saved, but I do want to see the shootouts, the thieves caught, the assaults halted,the meth labs closed and ALL the other shit the two bit swine ARE supposed to be doing with all this high tech equipment, instead of the usual patrolmen driving too fast between donut stops, traffic stops,piss stops, food stops,domestic disputes(also not on the menu, because it doesn't affect ME), hassling ethnics/teens/homeless, sneaking a joint under the overpass, etc. I think they should be subject to random camera checks where the boss looks in through their cams, whenever the mood strikes.
          So fuck you and your self righteous, poorly thought attempt at condescension.

The Cashless Society? It's Already Coming

flyneye Re:You can pry my wallet from my... (375 comments)

I decided to test this rumour that a cashless world is coming; I asked the first person on the street corner for their thoughts.
Charlene said " unh-uh honey, if you got no cash, you ain't cummin. This girl wants it green and in her hand. What you talking about cashless society?"

Obama Offers Funding For 50,000 Police Body Cameras

flyneye Re:There are issues to resolve... (262 comments)

If the crime happens in public, and it IS a crime, I paid, I want to see it. Even if I have to wait til court is over, but as public OWNER of the footage I demand to see a return on my investment.
Protect the innocent by holding the film 'till after court. If they are guilty release it, if not, it wasn't a crime and it's no ones business. Whatever I do with MY footage then, is MY business. Fuck the guilty.

Ability To Consume Alcohol May Have Shaped Human Evolution

flyneye Re:Birds Get Drunk Too, and maybe the squirrels (89 comments)

My dog got sloppy drunk, eating overripe mulberries off the ground. My wife pointed out he was staggering,aimlessly, falling, over and over. Then it hit me, I'd seen him eating some mulberries and put it together. He was a sorry dog the next day and hasn't eaten mulberries since. I notice that doesn't stop many people from repeatedly bashing their brains and organs with far too much alcohol. Hangover, vows of abstinence, shower, a short time cycle, tequila shooters or Long Island Iced Teas, silly behavior, sleep, rinse, repeat.
Dogs should be studied far closer.

Ability To Consume Alcohol May Have Shaped Human Evolution

flyneye Re:Of course it did (89 comments)

I've seen this phenomena in Texas. But noticeably Massachusetts is a FAIL even as likely as they consume twice the state of Texas.
These questions should be probed in further depth, with random samplings in the thousands,aclohol and women, from both states, by a team, I would assemble.
Their objectivity and focus would have to be completely on the job. With a grant or a kick start, the research could go on for years and provide valuable information, for anyone in the science community, who needed a drink or to get their pickle tickled.

          The political implications could be staggering as well. But my money is on Colorado and other marijuana states to attract a higher chickadeer population.

Taxi Medallion Prices Plummet Under Pressure From Uber

flyneye Re:Diamonds and guns (Woo Hoo) (329 comments)

I'm still trying to get by that bit in the article about ;" the government realized they needed to make sure drivers weren't psychopaths luring victims into their cars. "
Not sure medallions were effective, correlated or even an oblique strategy against the near-human species driving cabs today.
Basically, they only existed as a token of taxes/bribes paid, a lot like just about any "license"(permission) you grovel for from perceived authority today! You may as well just get in the Manson Family SUV to catch a ride to the store.

The Driverless Future: Buses, Not Taxis

No one ever considers riding horses! Horses take up quite a bit of room though. Perhaps if we rode pigs instead...

The Driverless Future: Buses, Not Taxis

flyneye Re:I disagree (257 comments)

Brilliant! We need a large vehicle that slithers through traffic. It could be based on those robotic snakes from a few years ago. I could see it crawling along on a tread lined belly, making clean corners, gobbling up riders, pooping their nutrient drained husks out. Perhaps it could squeeze buildings for passengers or tankers for fuel.
That would be efficient. It could crawl over traffic jams, park in unusual places, maybe there are military applications!

The Driverless Future: Buses, Not Taxis

flyneye Re:Uber, uber, uber, uber (257 comments)

Insert clever remark about driverless vehicles on "the road to nowhere", compare and contrast, automats, vending machines, pay toilets and marital aids.
End with analogy dealing with electric underwear, Prince Alberts button fly and Apple computers. Recap and close.

Forbes Revisits the Surface Pro 3, Which May Face LG Competition

flyneye Re:Not a Tablet (101 comments)

It's a ticket for a carnival game of chance.
If any part of the Surface breaks or breaks down; it's trash. There's no fixing it.Disposable as a Bic lighter.
You know, I've seen the same sort of promotional model used by the music industry;
Pay industry publications/writers to fain interest in your product and turn up the valve on the hyperbole faucet, then throw some money at advertising and see if it sells a hit song. If not, fire some flunkys and go on the the next product-du-jour.
It's time to call Purina and not the ASPCA; the horse has been beaten to death...

Graphene May Top Kevlar As a Bullet-Stopping Material

flyneye Re:Way ahead of you! (129 comments)

I wanna print up one of those laser guns that fires a microscale silica bullet at up to 2000 m.p.h.
Duck season bears on and I'm tired of the same ol' choked 12 ga.
I'd boost the laser power and cook the duck before it hits the ground.
