Storing Hydrogen At Room Temperature

justleavealonemmmkay Re:Importance of Hydrogen (152 comments)

The Solar Impulse, however beautiful and amazing it is, is about as useful as a production aircraft as a sailplane. Probably worse actually as sailplanes are quite capable of flying in moderate upwind.

You'll need to give them at least two tables, so that they can put at least two documents side by side.

White House Proposes "Wealthy Tax"

justleavealonemmmkay Re:Work hard, become successful, prosper... (2115 comments)

If by "work hard" you mean go to a business school where they will give you a adress book of other self content bastards who will exclusively hire you instead of someone competent and teach you how to maximize short term profit until you can use your golden parachute (only to be hired the next month by another rogue corporation's board), then that's what you deserve. This is about 50% of the rich, "hard working people". Add to that the 45% of lucky sperms, and you have 95% of the rich out there.

Working hard is by far no guarantee to get wealthy.
Being rich is by far no proof to have worked hard.

Will Climate Engineering Ever Go Prime Time?

justleavealonemmmkay we're fsckd (281 comments)

It took us 250 years to ramp up a (profitable) industry that ultimately boils down to turn turning craploads of alkane chains into water and craploads of carbon dioxide. Unless we find a process that does the opposite orders of magnitudes faster and at near zero cost, it'll take thousand of years to reverse the effects.

And I haven't begun yet on how we could possibly control such a system with 1) no measurable effect before decades 2) no idea if we fuck up something else with the side effects before centuries.

Frankly, we'd be better off learning to live with the effects.

then attacking firemen when they tried to rescue the families in the flats above

Then shooting policemen. And steeling their helmets. Then going to the toilet in the helmets. Then sending them to the policemen's grieving widows. Then steeling them again.

Ask Slashdot: How Do I Scrub Pirated Music From My Collection?

justleavealonemmmkay Re:Ripped music (758 comments)

Uberhaupt, how can they tell the difference between an unsigned MP3 that you legally purchased, and an unsigned MP3 that you got off Napster ? Do you have a legal obligation to keep a proof of purchase or do THEY have to prove that you download it from an illegal source?

Kaspersky calls for 'Internet Interpol'

justleavealonemmmkay The cybercops will go where the money is (1 comments)

The cybercops will go where the money is. And the money is in sueing people that generally do not contempt law and are otherwise solvent: p2p filesharers.

Forget about them fighting identity thiefs, hackers and other internet banking hackers.

Facebook-Direct Phones — and Facebook Right On the SIM

justleavealonemmmkay Futile (113 comments)

It's a SIM application, which means explicit support by the vendor is required. Wouldn't it have been more efficient to just create a dedicated APN for Facebook ?
