Australian Police Arrest 15, Charge 2, For Alleged Islamic State Beheading Plot

funwithBSD Re:Garbage Disposal (165 comments)

I got a better idea:

Let's get off oil, then they will have no power, no funding, and thus, no threat.

They can go back to pounding sand like they were 100 years ago.

Canadian Regulator Threatens To Impose New Netflix Regulation

funwithBSD Re:why does the CRTC need this list? (319 comments)

Except this appears to be case of using regulatory power grab to do something that is probably not within the regulatory statute i.e. having to identify users. Does any other regulated service have to do so? cable? Broadcast?

Since they can't just order it via a judge or some other method apparently, they are trying to strong arm by threatening with an unrelated to the issue regulation they CAN control.

funwithBSD Re:Garbage Disposal (165 comments)

Why would you think that they could not twist being treated like "normal" criminals as something special? In the US, Muslim recruiting is prisons is very effective.

Liars are gonna lie, nothing you do is going stop that.

Yep. HAM is not anonymous, so people tend to behave themselves.

20m has some issues with radio pirates spewing hate speech, but mostly it is very civil.

Whedon on the Election, SPAM, Zombies, Ayn Rand and so much more.

funwithBSD funwithBSD writes  |  about 2 years ago

funwithBSD (245349) writes "In a stunning Trifecta of Geekdom, Joss Whedon expounds on the outcome of the election and how it will bring about the Zombie Apocolypse, why to avoid fans of Ayn Rand, and how to allocate your shelves in the canned goods cabinet.

So far, this is the most coherent argument I have heard so far from either campaign."

Climate Scientist Refutes AGW

funwithBSD funwithBSD writes  |  more than 3 years ago

funwithBSD (245349) writes "Scientist David Evans exposes the false assumption in the current models. Current model assumes increases in CO2 will increase the depth of the "moist air" layer.

Weather balloon evidence available since the mid 1990's has show that the increase never happened and yet the assumption remains in the models."
