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.

To Really Cut Emissions, We Need Electric Buses, Not Just Electric Cars

The Savannah was a terrible example. It was basically half cruise ship half cargo ship.
If you want a cargo ship build a cargo ship.

Coffee Naps Better For Alertness Than Coffee Or Naps Alone

jgtg32a Re:Anecdotal verification (133 comments)

I was able to do this for a while and it was amazing. I would drink coffee and then sleep in a carpool for 20ish minutes, and was ready to go all day.

Little to early to say but so far it looks like removing nuclear capability isn't really working out too well for Ukraine.

Nah, they can and should keep their consoles but what they should do is have an emulator for their handhelds on the console and make the entire handheld library available.

Acid Bath Offers Easy Path To Stem Cells

jgtg32a Re:Embryonic ability (71 comments)

One thing that I've noticed is that people who are against embryonic stem cell research are aware that there are "adult" stem cells, and people who are for embryonic stem cell research don't seem to be aware of the existence of "adult" stem cells. I know it is selection bias, but it is amusing and sad that people I wouldn't expect to have that knowledge do and the people I would expect to have it don't.
