jgtg32a Saltwater and MTBF (89 comments)

I wish them the best of luck but saltwater is particularly nasty stuff over over an extended period of time. Hopefully they can find a cheap way to insulate against it.

Two Google Engineers Say Renewables Can't Cure Climate Change

jgtg32a Re:Is Nuclear going to be acknowledged? (628 comments)

IIRC it is actually around 300 years, if you reprocess the waste. You'll get most of it back, except for a small amount that can't really be processed.

Mathematical Proof That the Universe Could Come From Nothing

jgtg32a Re:The mathematics is only a model of the physics (429 comments)

Yup, I kinda wish someone would come up with a mathematical proof for geocentrism just to have something to have an FYI for the laity, so people don't go off the deep end over stuff like this.

jgtg32a I thought it was dead (81 comments)

I thought it was dead, and the Air Force just didn't say anything to mess with people and make them think about what it was up to.

Tor Executive Director Hints At Firefox Integration

jgtg32a Re:Porn needs Javascript (117 comments)

IIRC their argument was something along the lines of very few people were actually completely disabling JS, and a lot of them later complained that the internet wasn't working because they disabled JS. Also, NoScript is a very popular addon, which gives control over what scripts are actually allowed to run. So they switched JS back on for everyone without telling anyone and moved the option to about:config.
 
Their argument made sense, people who want to control JS were already using NoScript, and the web is getting more and more unusable with no JS. The only problem I had was the re-enabled JS and didn't actually tell the end user they did it, although I think someone who intentionally disabled it would realize it very quickly.
