"What's even more interesting is how you can distinguish Obama from [Reagan]"

fustakrakich Re:Every President in my Lifetime (37 comments)

...you can tell them apart by their crimes.

It's really been all one big crime, since before Ancient Rome, but keep in mind they all did the job they were hired to do. They kept you focused on them, instead of the people they evict and blow up.

However, yes, we are on the steady decline, growing a little steeper every cycle. This is the path humans have chosen. Eventually the reset button will get hit, and it will start all over again. Birth, Life, Death...

Seagate - At least I got a heads up

fustakrakich Re:Toying with the idea of building a box (6 comments)

Unless you really don't care about the stuff, the "cloud" at best, is a secondary backup in case the house burns down. And the service isn't exactly 100% reliable either, or your internet provider. And for true peace of mind, TWO local backups are needed. Hard drives are just too randomly flaky. I've been burned by all brands. Luckily sometimes it's the enclosure that broke down.

The "cloud" makes for a great courier service. I can upload straight to anybody who is synced to the same account, or it will be waiting for them when they hook up.

"What's even more interesting is how you can distinguish Obama from [Reagan]"

fustakrakich Re:"Reagan's leadership" (37 comments)

It's okay. I really don't expect you to notice. That's how conditioned response is supposed to work. But yeah, your feelings about him are quite clear, without any exaggeration on my part. It is precisely the polar opposite of your "distaste" for Obama. It's your ying and yang that give you balance. If we could cycle back and forth between them quick enough, we would have you flip-flopping faster than a fresh caught trout.

fustakrakich Re:"Reagan's leadership" (37 comments)

Yes, you do consistently idolize him in every post his name comes up, or when comparing other politicians. And yes, he is provably the most corrupt. No other administration had a cabinet so full of indicted and convicted criminals. Your eye remains totally blind to what he was because, you adore and idolize him. I'm not flinging poo. I'm pointing out the poo that you apply to yourself.

Battle of the Heavy Lift Rockets

fustakrakich Re:Competition is good. (195 comments)

"Spaceflight" technology goes back to 1926.

And the 747 still burns kerosene. Progress in that respect has remained static since the first steam engine. However, think about the fact that man spent thousands of years on horseback, makes the present rate of progress look pretty good.

fustakrakich Re:"Reagan's leadership" (37 comments)

Again, you're trying to be funny, talking about "morality" in politics, after your idol turned out to be one of the most corrupt ever to occupy the office. Blind eye indeed!! And why do you want to go to war against your own mercenaries? That makes no sense.

And dude! You really went all Rush Limbaugh (feminazis, thanks for keeping that one alive)-Jerry Falwell there. Are you taking what he's taking? Don't do drugs, man...

fustakrakich Re:Why start now? (21 comments)

Nope, you haven't said any of that. Your focus, more like obsession, is on the one person, regardless of his ability to control anything. You are on a bandwagon. And you'll jump off just as soon as your "party" #ReoccupiesResoluteDesk (or however you put it). You are fooling no one except yourself.

Microsoft Defies Court Order, Will Not Give Emails To US Government

fustakrakich Re:That's nice, but... (396 comments)

Or they could suspend Microsoft corporate charter until they come up with the goods. And besides, if the government can go into any country and grab whoever is "on the list", then they can do the same for a hard drive, too.

NASA's Competition For Dollars

Regardless of the reasons one way or the other, nobody has the right to prohibit its possession and use.

States Allowing Medical Marijuana Have Fewer Painkiller Deaths

fustakrakich Re:Wouldn't edibles have the same effect (207 comments)

Pot is an irritant. So far all long term effects have proven nil. A few months after stopping, it's like you never smoked at all. Maybe natural tobacco isn't so bad either, but cigarettes are so full of nasty shit...

Bacteria and global warming

fustakrakich fustakrakich writes  |  about a year and a half ago

fustakrakich (1673220) writes "Like we do, most bacteria respire, that is they convert carbon containing compounds, into carbon dioxide and water, and as an outcome of this process generate cellular energy. Unfortunately, for us there are far more bacteria on the planet that there are people and as a consequence bacteria produce rather a lot of carbon dioxide. In fact the microbes that break down plant matter in soil release 55 billion tons of carbon dioxide a year into the atmosphere, which represents around eight times the amount that humans are putting into the atmosphere through the burning of fossil fuels. As the temperature of our planet increases, we will inevitably alter the activity of planet’s microbes and through this fundamentally their impact on the Earth’s climate"

Good News on the Free Speech Front

fustakrakich fustakrakich writes  |  about 2 years ago

fustakrakich (1673220) writes "Supreme Court blocks Illinois law prohibiting taping of police:

The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected a plea from the Cook County state's attorney to allow enforcement of a law prohibiting people from recording police officers on the job.

The justices on Monday left in place a lower court ruling that found that the state's anti-eavesdropping law violates free speech rights when used against people who tape law enforcement officers...

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit in 2010 against State's Attorney Anita Alvarez to block prosecution of ACLU staff for recording police officers performing their duties in public places, one of the group's long-standing monitoring missions."

David Cameron 'orders new curbs on internet porn'

fustakrakich fustakrakich writes  |  about 2 years ago

fustakrakich (1673220) writes "

The new measures will mean that in future anyone buying a new computer or signing up with a new internet service provider (ISP) will be asked, when they log on for the first time, whether they have children. If the answer is "yes", the parent will be taken through the process of installing anti-pornography filters, as well as a series of questions on how stringent they wish the restrictions to be, according to a newspaper.

If the answer is "no", all male customers over 18 will be immediately tagged as pedophiles."

When both sides are completely nuts

fustakrakich fustakrakich writes  |  3 days ago

Why the hell should I care who "wins"? What could possibly be nihilist about that? In a World Series game between the Yankees and the Dodgers, who the fuck cares? It's the Cubs you're supposed to be cheering on, whether they have a chance or not, it doesn't matter, unless you're actually placing money.

Funny how all things are alike.

Apparently someone in my friends list has a bunch of points to blow off. Somebody who knows how to game the system by not posting for a few days. I know that trick too. It works every time, being automated and all. But I like being a motormouth between gigs. I just might leave this account for all to see the abuse and just make another.. You'll know if it happens

I see you...
