Canada Supreme Court Broadens Internet "Luring" Offense
You never know, I was talking to my 12 year old cousin just a week ago.
She wasn't very interested in Twilight, however, she kept constantly asking me questions about string theory, black holes and quantum physics.
I was so proud! She is definitely a future slashdotter.
Doctors Baffled, Intrigued By Girl Who Doesn't Age
I'm sorry, but scientifically that makes no sense. You die mainly because of cell damage accumulation (although there are other factors involved). Even if her mutation is making her somehow age slower, it doesn't mean that her cells will magically accumulate less damage.
Mars Robot May Destroy Life It Was Sent To Find
Ah, the Human way of finding life:
Astronaut 1: "So, any signs of life?"
Astronaut 2: *shooting a flamethrower at the ground* "None."
Astronaut 1: "Ok, just to be sure let's blow everything up and scan the debris."
Google Health Open Platform Is Great — Or Awful
Scientists are baffled by the realization that most things that matter are either Good - Or Bad.
What's the Solution To Intellectual Property?
As an anarcho-communist, I have to say, I don't acknowledge property rights. Why? Because property rights boil down to "I was here first, I stuck a flag in it, it is mine", and everything had a flag stuck in it before I was born, and I refuse to acknowledge a system that considers all of this to be someone elses property. It is not. It is my birthright, to share with others of my generation. If you claim I do not have a right to my birthright, I consider that justification to kill you and take it by force. That sort of reasoning was exactly what lead to countless wars. Hitler and the Germans thought it was their birthright to take Europe. Saddam Hussein thought it was his birthright to take Kuwait. China took Tibet. They considered that justification to kill people and take those countries by force.
Say you kill a landowner for his land. Now the land is yours. The next generation has no land. Who do you think they will want to kill?
Sorry, I do not want a war every generation because people feel it's their birthright to have land. It is not. Study, work, make money, buy it. I did, why can't you? If you try to take something that is rightfully mine because you are too lazy to work for it, then I reserve the right to kill you.
That is the evil of Communism, when you think everything belongs to everyone, individuals have nothing and the government owns everything. Anarchic Communism is even worse, because everyone thinks they have the right to everything, and without any government to keep the order, we'd be in a constant state of war.
