Low-Protein Diet May Extend Lifespan
> militant vegetarians (which always struck me as an oxymoron, but never mind...)
You're aware that Hitler, Pol Pot, Charles Manson to name a few were/are vegetarians ?
Offopic I know, but you sound like u'r saying vegetarians are "better" than non-vegetarians.. Hitler and the others probably thought the same thing. My friends, all meat eaters are all wonderful people. Please stop spreading BS how eating meat makes you militant/violent more than if you eat weed.
I personally am allergic to vegetarians and they are the only bunch actually that I have desire to hurt. Not because they eat weed but because they behave like assholes. Every time somebody mentions vegetarianism they start saying things that in between the lines that mean how they more evolved and BS like that.. and the truth is, they just expressing their belief system.
It's like listening to those f-ing people that walk around and are trying to convert you to their religion. Keep your beliefs for yourself please.
Vile weed !
Leonard Nimoy: Smoking Is Illogical
> Let's see if you feel the same way if and when you reach the age of 82.
Logic and feelings usually are not compatible. Otherwise religions wouldn't exist.
How he feels is irrelevant when talking about logic.
Haven't you watched Star Trek ?
23-Year-Old Chess Grandmaster Whips Bill Gates In 71 Seconds
You emphasize how this guy made a career out of using his brain. So what ??
Having and/or using a brain is same as having nice voice or being handsome. Something none of us individually wished for. You're born that way - therefore nothing to be proud of.
Your post is assuming that having a brain and building a career out of it is better or more ... whatever .. than people having a nice body/voice .. talent for music.
I know this is a nerd web site.. and nerds are same as other groups of people.. biased, but c'mon. Try a bit harder.
NSA Planned To Discredit Radicals Based On Web-Browsing Habits
Porn ? Depends on the kind of porn.
If you watch classic... stuff, then yeah.. everybody does/did it. If you watch some hc fetish gay interracial bsdm fart piss sh.t .. then yeah, it might be a problem.
Why Scott Adams Wished Death On His Dad
How is that (coke being illegal) a problem ? .... just if the police say you can't do something doesn't mean you should obey _unconditionally_. Society as you know it is not gonna fall apart.
I can keep in my home whatever I feel like keeping, because... it's my life and my home. Yes.. you can have problems if police raid your place and start tearing walls apart, but if that sh.t happens then obviously you have bigger problems than 10g of coke hidden somewhere where nobody will look EVER.
Man In Tesla Model S Fire Explains What Happened
Engine damage ? Pull over safely ?
I have an old car, it has engine temperature and oil low light. In fact, in my country everybody has old cars like that. Either car is going or not, if you want to damage the engine you can overheat it (but you can't, there's a temp meter on the dashboard) and still you won't damage it, you'll just make roughly $100-$200 usd damage, depending on what car you have. It'll stop itself since water will start mixing with fuel in the cylinders.
Summary: On "current" down to the ground cars without too much computer bs in it, you just need oil light and temp meter. There's no need for anything else. Maybe your own intuition and knowledge of your car. Sound, behavior, etc.
Pull over safely. No... I prefer to not pull over safely, rather i prefer to crash while puling over. What a f retarded message.
NSA Broke Into Links Between Google, Yahoo Datacenters
I often hear people say this on slashdot. Americans about American government, whenever somebody mentions "a plot". This can be one of those plots.
5 years ago, everybody would say it's impossible this conspiracy plot is happening because they're stupid morons who can't do sh.t, and I should go buy me self a tinfoil hat somewhere.
What we heard in the last 5 months invalidates opinions of 90 % of people visiting this site. They're obviously efficient and capable at having plots and god only knows (maybe Snowden too) what they did/are doing and will continue to do in the future, but anybody who can think without getting his emotions involved, will naturally assume that whatever they're doing - is not good.
Here's another conspiracy plot. Make Americans think they Government is not capable of doing anything so they (the Americans thinking like this) discredit and label everybody who figures out the truth.
If it's not on the TV/Newspapers it's not happening mentality will ruin you. They are and were just tools for the same Gov that is doing this to all of us to misinform you and control what you know and not know.
Thanks to the internet, blogs, mistake made by booze allen or whatever is the name of that company, we now getting more and more informed. While we getting more and more informed, we're also getting more and more disgusted which we weren't before... naturally. Since we didn't kknow any better, we just knew what they told us.
I know i know... it's a plot again, but i don't expect any better from your, or any other Gov anyway.
UN Mounts Asteroid Defense Plan Following Chelyabinsk Meteor
No idea about asteroids meteorites and stuff like that, but if "diverting it to something that will send 100 rocks at us back" is a problem, then divert it towards the sun.
Or am I missing something ?
Germany: We Think NSA May Have Tapped Chancellor Merkel's Cell Phone
I feel disgusted every time top politicians plead ignorance about what other countries top politicians/owners are doing. They all in bed and these kinds of news are just a circus for the hungry.
NSA can tap phones beds bathrooms of every each one of European politicians and 5 years later, the EU ones are still gonna down the planes of let's say South American presidents if US gives them a call about it.
That's how the real truth comes out. Everything else is BS and especially this Merkel.
But people love it. There are some, don't like it... don't like the circus.. but most of the people do. It fills their empty lives with low quality content on which they comment and give their opinions, exercise their freedom of speech. Me ? I'm just hangover and talking sh.t.
Its Nuclear Plant Closed, Maine Town Is Full of Regret
I'm a technical guy from age ... hm. 5 i think. Been in tech business long time, started professionally when i was 16. Like..work in a IT company doing coding and server management. 28 now.
I'm not hating on nuclear tech. I'm hating on fukushima scenarios and then the world that is totally apathetic towards such scenarios. If the price to pay is to pollute this planet (our home btw) even further and more severe, then yeah.. we need to double think what and how we' doing stuff. Even if there's a remote chance of that happening. It's not about being irrational, it's about "hey... sh.t already happened, and we don''t know how to deal with it properly".
When we learn how to contain it (and i don't mean pouring tons of radioactive water a day into ocean for 20 years or whatever as a proper method of containment) then sure. You can build a nuclear plant in every city and village as far as I'm concerned.
We reached a point in our existence when we need to think how we use our knowledge and tech, not just blindly push forward without thinking about long term consequences. 200 years ago there was nothing we could do to harm our habitat. This is the first time in our existence (known) that we can seriously affect "life" in general, long term.
Interview With Professor Potrykus, Inventor of Golden Rice
> Oh, wait. If it was modified more then 100 years ago it doesn't count as evil.
That's not it. If it was modified by human experimentation then it counts.. as a potential problem.
By "human experimentation" I don't mean taking two species and leaving stuff for _nature_ to either do it's thing or not do, understand ?
Especially if that "human" is a corporation ... like Monsanto.
Programmers should understand this better. Occasionally I'm amazed that so many tech people are pro-gmo-as-we-know-it. It's a cool thing, but some of us aren't playing games when it comes to our health.
Usually people that said what you said also say something like "gmo is cool because we're running out of food" which is the stupidest thing a smart person can say. We can feed a lot more people. The bigger problem is distribution and allocation, but for this we don't need GMO we need politics and governments that are actually working for the people, and not for themselves and upper 1 % whoever they might be and corporations that are only interested in profit.
Interview With Professor Potrykus, Inventor of Golden Rice
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitamin_A and check "Sources" section.
So... why ? I mean if there's a country in Africa that doesn't have access to anything containing vitamin a, then ok sell this rice to them. 99 % of us are ingesting it daily already.
US Forces Ready To Strike Syria If Ordered
While does everybody here assume regime used chemical weapons ? Isn't it possible that the "rebels" used chemical weapons to motivate other countries to help them ? I mean if you're losing the "war", it kinda makes sense, unless you believe that those so called rebels over there are morally superior to whoever.
1. There is no proof regime used chemical weapons.
2. Why would regime use chemical weapons ? They're "winning" already..
3. Why would regime use chemical weapons ? The rulling party there is NOT stupid, whatever you may think of them. You think they wouldn't know it would come to this (worldwide condemnation) ?
4. The ruling party have majority of peoples votes. Why would they undermine that ?
5. Why would they allow UN to come inspect the site then shoot at them ? If they wanted to make it impossible for UN team to investigate, there certainly are better ways then using a sniper guy to shoot at them. That tactic is more likely to be used by "rebels".
The people forcing the attack on Syria to happen are the same war mongers that where advocating the attack of Syria months before this chemical bs. Now they're on fire. All over the media.
The same people that where blabbering about Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. I wouldn't put any trust in them.
And I'll tell you this people. The world is starting to get sick (and I'm not talking about European puppet Governments, rather.. the people) of American war mongering, so better keep out of it and deal with your problems instead of going around bombing countries and interfering in other countries business.
Also, will the US and UK exterminate the rebels if it's proven that they used chemical weapons ?
Just my wishful thinking that there's some unbiased justice in the world.
Don't Fly During Ramadan
Oh yes. I guess "other" people would be better then the people right now.
The only hope I' having in life is that you people will understand this sarcastic sentence above... at least when you reach 60 years age.
Don't Fly During Ramadan
The people don't like gays. It's not about Putin, it's about collective mentality.
Now if you gonna be hating on the people... well .. go ahead. But that's why we so f up in the first case. Too much hating.
Three Banks Lose Millions After Wire Transfer Switches Hacked
End consumer (commoners) always end up paying, one way or another, in all situations. Nothing new there.
Sometimes I think that instead of being a obedient sheep, waking up early, working 10 hours and generally being exploited while barely having enough for comfortable "life", I should turn to let's say.. victimless crime*.
I know this is frowned upon by society, but only because those in power are propagating idea that we should be obedient.. so they can keep all the f money and have less competition.
The banks are criminals, the politicians are criminals, the religious leaders are criminals, insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, governments, etc. In modern world, they just upped it to a new, modern level. It's not corruption same as in 3rd world country, but it still exist just behind the curtains and/or through loopholes they made for themselves.
I know people that acquired wealth by pillaging (literally), smuggling cigarettes and guns. Now they are respected businessmen that have legal businesses, and are hiring you to work 10 hours a day for them while they propagate the idea that doing anything "illegal" is bad. Exactly the same as those mentioned above are doing.
It's all just to keep you in check and under control. Every each one of them are full of it.
(*) = As a programmer, that would be let's say hacking wordpress sites and selling them to someone or using them to make a profit. System Administrators should be happy. This creates jobs for them.
New Radioactive Water Leak At Fukushima: 300 Tons and Growing
In any case. Look at what's happening on this planet now with governments, governments organizations (nsa, ...) their corporation overlords, etc. You get the point.
Shouldn't it make sense that the world unites and helps Japan fix this problem ? At least the countries that can. I mean radiation is a global problem, not Japanese problem just because it happened in Japan.
Sometimes I think we're so ignorant and ... stupid (even though human race would think it's smart, especially the egotistical CS nerds) that we deserve to be wiped of this planet and replaced with whatever else.
Partner of Guardian's Snowden Reporter Detained Under Terrorism Act
Why in bold ? One would think that being a human being is something special.
Ever seen a dog and later a human get hit by a car ?
Anyway.. you don't have freedom/rights, you have owners. I like how George Carlin quotes are showing to be true 15 years later.
Russia Today: Vladimir Putin's Weapon In 'The War of Images'
/sarcasm/ And Americans are known to live in ... "proper reality".
Maybe that idea is true.. only among Americans.
Some NGO's are funded by US SD and have a purpose of "bringing new ideas and influencing opinion of certain groups of people, mostly young ones". Some are not.
NED program is quite controversial. Maybe not in US, since the apparatus that shape your "proper reality" certainly won't be questioning morality of these programs, therefore neither will you. Sad actually, sometimes annoying.
American reality is that when you bomb the sh.t out of some country, Hillary Clinton comes out and says "we did it to free them and bring them democracy".
And you guys actually believe that. That's your reality. The one that the victims and people of those bombing don't share, btw. Neither does the rest of the world.
In the last 50 years, you guys are just running around pushing your dick in other peoples business. This wouldn't be possible without good and powerful media corporations. All other news outlets in other countries are simply copying what 10 of the biggest ones (and all are connected) write. I read news in 3 different languages, and I saw a pattern long time ago.
Putin figured out that you can't have power in the world without media. He copied you guys. That's what the headline should be, not this BS.
I work, btw, for more .. controversial american independent media organization. You certainly ain't seeing pictures of dead children in Yemen on CNN and BBC, on a daily basis. If more of you did, maybe something would actually change.
And no, I'm not Russian. I just get very annoyed by American feeling of (moral,ethical) superiority compared to countries like Russia, China or .. any other. Communist or otherwise.
FBI Pressures Internet Providers To Install Surveillance Software
> If it is so obviously maybe you'll name this somebody and give examples of this somebody's policies that contradicted those of the American people and the presidents on the way in.
One dude is called Money. Another players are: greed, power, influence, control.
To get real a bit.. the ones that are controlling money and know how everything works. The ones that had their great great great grandpapa do the same long time ago.
From their perspective, you're not important. Imagine how that "royal" child from couple of weeks ago will grow up, and what perspective it will have, being treated like this.
These families think the same. They bloody built cities that you live in, to their liking. They have politicians, judges, corporations, banks and everything that matters in their back pockets. And you think that they will allow you to 'choose' ? Like George Carlin would say, you don't have a choice. You have owners.
The game is rigged. Two wings same bird.
Now you can go around and think that it's like in the movies ("mr. president" as the main man), write a letter, put in a ballot and expect "change". That's your 'choice'. Just don't act all angry and surprised when in 6-7 years somebody blows a whistle again and you hear that AGAIN your gov is doing unconstitutional, illegal stuff like torture, bribery, mass spying programs domestic and foreign, starting wars for the sake of these people (you really think that american politicians have some higher moral code ?), detention camps where people want starve to death rather than live there and what not.
