Take a look, girl. I'm not sure who "This guy" is.. The study was authored by seven people, six of whom have doctoral degrees. But I'm sure you've outsmarted all of them...

Proposed NJ Law Allows Cops To Search Phones At Crash Scenes

j00r0m4nc3r Re:Yes (397 comments)

According to that site, eating = impaired driving as well

In that case, we'd better give cops the authority to perform exploratory laparotomy surgeries too, so they can check for the presence of recently eaten food.

U.S. District Judge: Forced Decryption of Hard Drives Violates Fifth Amendment

Yeah, better to just reply, "I was going the speed limit," and nothing more. If he has some proof to the contrary he can bring it up in court.

U.S. District Judge: Forced Decryption of Hard Drives Violates Fifth Amendment

j00r0m4nc3r Re:My goodness (417 comments)

This is what happens when a nation fail to educate its citizens.

Without a doubt, this is the most important point you can make in the whole thing. I think the school system here is entirely lacking in educating people about the importance of freedom, what it is, how it comes to be, how it gets eroded, and the effects of that erosion. Sure we make kids read 1984 and Animal Farm, but IMO this doesn't nearly go far enough. There is absolutely nothing more important in our society than preserving freedom. We should have entire classes devoted to the subject. I know we teach history and civics et al.. but in my experience it's mostly just fact-learning -- dates, people, etc.. Not enough critical analysis of how all those people and events affect freedom, not enough education about what it's like to live in a non-free society. I don't think Americans in general have any idea how bad it can get, and how easily that badness can seep in, and how hard it is to get it back

So at what point does the ratio difference become insignificant? What if it was 1.3 and 4.8 out of 100,000,000,000,000? Does that remain significant?
