Biofuels From Corn Can Create More Greenhouse Gases Than Gasoline

killkillkill Re:100% distrust (157 comments)

This is a bad idea because it removes organic matter from the soil and making it less fertile, more easily compacted and more prone to errotion. Fields in that condition require more fertilizer

Then we just add petroleum based fertilizers to the soil. Problem solved,

AT&T Exec Calls Netflix "Arrogant" For Expecting Net Neutrality

killkillkill Re:It's not arrogant, it's correct. (466 comments)

Ultimately the customer is going to end up paying more. Most likely the raised prices will hit everyone, not just those of us who use Netflix. So, it's good to know that those who can barely afford service with basic plans will be subsidizing my leisure time activities. I sure don't want to pay for it all.

Is Weev Still In Jail Because the Government Doesn't Understand What Hacking Is?

killkillkill Re:Goatse Security??? (246 comments)

Maybe they are, but I'll never find out. There's no way I'm clicking that link to learn more about them... Then again, it still might be easier on the eyes than Beta.

Tim Cook: If You Don't Like Our Energy Policies, Don't Buy Apple Stock

killkillkill Re:Tim, you don't own the company (348 comments)

Of course they voted it down, their energy policy is good marketing for their target audience. The bottom line is still the reason for the policy.

Ghostwriter Reveals the Secret Life of WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange

killkillkill Re:So? (359 comments)

I've seen and heard his interviews. Sure, it falls quite short of personally knowing him and there is certainly a mask of some sort to portray how he wants the public to perceive him rather than a reflection of his real personality. However, that is the vibe I always got from him. There is a limit to how many people we can know personally. To be able to function within those limits we have instincts. Empirical evidence should be sought when possible and opinions based on instincts should be held loosely. The events surrounding this man are quite important to our world and it's worth thinking about and having an opinion. His motives and personality do play a role in how much trust one should put in the man and insights like this are about the best we have without scheduling a meeting with him.

Re: SoylentNews Quite a few of the stories I've seen there so far seem to have a heavy "conspiracy theory" spin to them. I could see this posted there, only it would have a line about O'Hagan being an NSA shill. That being said, Slashdot has been in decline for a while and I will be heading over to SoylentNews to read, comment, and support that website after I am done here.

FCC Planning Rule Changes To Restore US Net Neutrality

killkillkill Re:Could we be so lucky? (235 comments)

And then prices go up across the board and the struggling single mom with internet access so her kids can do homework gets to subsidize the entertainment of the middle class. Brilliant.

California Regulator Seeks To Shut Down 'Learn To Code' Bootcamps

killkillkill Re:California (374 comments)

If that is what they are promising and the statistics don't match there are plenty of laws about fair marketing and fraud that would open them up to well more than a $50,000 fine.

US Forces Coursera To Ban Students From Cuba, Iran, Sudan, and Syria

killkillkill Re:education (306 comments)

Historically, all campaign finance reform does is make barriers to anyone who has a voice they wish to get out. Barriers that only the "1%" and their team of lawyers can navigate through. Guess I'm playing my cards as a nut job libertarian here, but this is one area more laws and regulation just make the problem they are trying to solve worse.

Court Says Craigslist Sperm Donor Must Pay Child Support

killkillkill Re: Dont do anyone any favors (644 comments)

Parental responsibilities come hand-in-hand with parental rights. Sometimes giving up the rights has a greater benefit for the child than the loss of the responsibility. For instance, leaving a child with two loving parents in an unbroken home rather than the child dealing with the stress of shared custody can be more valuable than some cash.

Romanian Bitcoin Entrepreneur Steps In To Pay OpenBSD Shortfall

No one is going to pay $20k of REAL money for bitcoins

Right, but many people will pay $20k of the "money" issued by the Federal Reserve.

Chinese Bitcoin Exchange Accused of Faking Trade Data

killkillkill Re:So this should kill itself, right free market? (75 comments)

Not that I endorse Mt. Gox (quite the opposite, really), but can we stop trowing "Magic the Gathering Online Exchange" into the conversation. The code for the trading platform designed for cards and the original owner/developer are long gone. The name is the only thing left. There are plenty of things to criticize the exchange over without this ad hominem.

killkillkill Re:Grammatical oversight (287 comments)

Grammatical oversight ignored, if what they were trying to say is true I can't imagine that it would not be true for 1,000 yrs, 1 million years... 100 Years? Were is their sensationalism?

US Issues 30-Year Eagle-Killing Permits To Wind Industry

I'm not sure that would help eagles. I believe they rely on sight more than sound when finding and targeting small mammals as prey.

Obama Praises NSA But Promises To Rein It In

killkillkill Re:Next time.. (306 comments)

Well, while he was researching what the Tea Party is about on the google, he probably missed the analysis from the Yale professor that showed Tea Party supporters are slightly more scientifically literate than the non-tea party population. He probably thinks Tea Party members are only Tea Party because they lack the enlightenment that he, and those in his social bubble that all share his world view, have. Anyone who disagrees with him is clearly an idiot. I'd leave him a link for the mentioned analysis, but he knows how to use Google.
