Does 'not battlefield-ready yet' mean that grenades stick to the hand and won't let go? or mortar rounds, plane wings, tank tracks, pants...

Ask Slashdot: What's the Most Depressing Sci-fi You've Ever Read?

jasontheking The men in the jungle (1365 comments)

The men in the jungle , by Norman Spinrad.

About 20 pages in, the hero of the story eats baby meat. And it just gets worse from there. a bunch of humans stuck on a planet with nothing to eat, devolves into a place that you just try and expunge from records, in the hope that noone goes there.

Natural Fluorine Does Exist ... In Smelly Rocks

jasontheking containers for F2 storage. (80 comments)

according to http://www.theodoregray.com/periodictable/Elements/009/index.s7.html , its pretty difficult to make a container to store pure F2 gas, maybe this is a way to at least transport it, assuming you have enough of the rock, or can make more of it.

Also, you smelt it? whats the safe distance you can get near this stuff (before/after you crush it) without doing nasty damage to yourself.

What Questions Should a Prospective Employee Ask?

jasontheking grill the manager(s) (569 comments)

I've had some bad managers in the past, so the questions I've started asking in interviews let me see how good the manager is.

stuff like

"go through the major points raised in the mythical man month."
(point to a random person in the room, that works under that manager) "when was the last time that person took time off"
"how do you get status on your projects" (are they going to bother you a lot asking how close you are to finishing, is their VCS set up to let you mark when things are completed, and does the manager read it)

Hospital Confirms Steve Jobs's Liver Transplant

jasontheking Re:So, about that "hormone imbalance"... (402 comments)

If a hormone imbalance is a minor symptom of a more serious condition, then could saying that someone needed treatment for a "hormone imbalance" be construed as lying? (when in fact they're getting treatment for the more serious condition)
