hoboroadie Redactive solution. (1 comments)

It's subject to line-by-line revision by representatives of governments around the world.

No worries, by the time it gets published there won't be any problem at all.

Figuring Out Where To Live Using Math

hoboroadie Red Rock Hill (214 comments)

My personal criteria for home location is pretty much Climate, and Volcanic Activity. YMMV.
OTOH, in the part of San Francisco I'm in right now, my elderly neighbors are safe on the streets 24/7, I guess the shmoogs don't want to hike up the hill or something. One evening I noticed a neighbor had left the car windows open with four sacks of groceries in the back seat, all still there at 0800 the next morning. Looked like two hundred dollars' worth, at least.
We are under-supplied with dirtbags here, that's all. The phenomenal prices help.

I find ergonomic chairs to be the very most important issue in the entire panoply of tech issues.
YMMV, but A.C.s suck, with their ill-considered comments, don't they?

I strongly suspect this Eric Holder fellow is a sniveling weenie.

Favorite "Go!" Phrase?

hoboroadie Re:Adam West (701 comments)

Actually, IIRC the electric generator from a B-52 surplus bits pile would work very well to power a 60s armored car. (It was a teenchy little turbine spinning an alternator.)
The atomic batteries are good for powering up the frickin' lasers and such.

FBI Concerned About Criminals Using Driverless Cars

hoboroadie Re:Automation is killing jobs faster than ever (435 comments)

Stopping behind the limit line as the regulation demands is one of those random, unexpected things that upsets others and causes accidents here. The full stop is apparently the most dangerous and anti-social move of all. I am a menace.

Global biological experiment generates exciting new results

hoboroadie hoboroadie writes  |  about 10 months ago

hoboroadie (1726896) writes "Scientific American Magazine says antibiotic-resistance genes have moved from the incubators of our hospitals & factory farms and are spreading through diverse species in the wild. Resistance genes have been detected in crows, gulls, houseflies, moths, foxes, frogs, sharks and whales, as well as in sand and coastal water samples from California and Washington. This stuff is getting more and more like a Hollywood script everyday, n'est ce pas?"
