Terrestrial Gamma Ray Bursts Very Common

l0ungeb0y Don't Make Storms Mad (63 comments)

"These are big, monster bursts of gamma rays, and one would think these must be monster storms producing them. But that's not the case. Even boring-looking, garden-variety, little storms can produce these."

When they get angry, they can become hulking MONSTER storms

NASA Study Proposes Airships, Cloud Cities For Venus Exploration

l0ungeb0y A Crewed Version? (193 comments)

Considering that a surface mission is completely unfeasible and that they would effectively be little more than equipment operators, it seems the only benefit to a manned mission would be "less latency" in controlling the equipment vs drone style operators based here on Earth. Personally, aside from "bragging rights" for pulling off the first manned Venus Mission I do not see anything that could remotely justify the risk of life and massive financial costs a manned mission would incur.

Once Again, Baltimore Police Arrest a Person For Recording Them

l0ungeb0y Re:Fire the cops (514 comments)

Assault and wrongful arrest is negligible? I hope to god some thug with a badge beats the shit out of you and locks you up just because you were at the wrong place at the wrong time. Then you can come here and tell us how negligible it was.

Apple Accused of Deleting Songs From iPods Without Users' Knowledge

l0ungeb0y Re:SURPRISE!!! (250 comments)

Except that Apple isn't the owner nor are they acting on behalf of the owner -- they are depriving you of your property on the sole basis that they want to hurt you because you used a competitors service. I fail to see why this should be a mere class action suit and not a criminal proceeding. This should qualify as property destruction and theft.

Intel Core M Notebooks Arrive, Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Tested

l0ungeb0y This Product Makes Sense (78 comments)

Having this week bought a new 13" MacBook Pro (tiny and light) and deciding to pass on the iPhone Galaxy 6 because it's form factor is so huge that it borders on being a mini-tablet -- I have been thinking if Apple could come out with a 10" Air and a standalone iWatch, I'd be completely fulfilled. So when I read about this Lenovo product yesterday, I was a bit jealous. If they can come out with a smaller display sized version and get some Linux drivers for the hardware and offer an Ubuntu version, I would totally leave Apple in a heart beat.

First Star War Episode 7 Trailer Released

l0ungeb0y Re:Sad... (390 comments)

Not sure about the S-Foils... but according to wookiepedia, they were deployed for "high stress situations" -- whatever that means. So considering that in space, there is no G-Force, there can be no exertion of "stresses" -- unless by "stress" they simply mean combat. But the X-Wings at least have control surfaces and afterburners -- and they show them flying in atmosphere in Ep IV and V So I can overlook that. The TIE Fighters on the other hand... totally bogus.

First Star War Episode 7 Trailer Released

l0ungeb0y TIE-Fighters flying in Atmosphere?!?!?!?! (390 comments)

Doesn't JJ know that Ion Engines don't generate enough thrust to propel so much as a paper airplane through atmosphere, much less an entire TIE-Fighter And even if those Twin Ion Engines could generate enough thrust, TIE-Fighers don't have control surfaces or the proper aerodynamics to fly?!?!?! Is he that big of a moron or is he purposely out to make the sequels worse than the prequels? And don't get me started on the sheer stupidity and uselessness of the crossguard on that Sith's lightsaber UTTER IDIOCY!

How the Pentagon's Robots Would Automate War

l0ungeb0y Re:Military defines "edge" differently than we do (117 comments)

To be fair, when it comes to weapons technology, you can never be too far ahead of the rest. We learned in WWI that simply using the same weapons and armor on naval ships or following the same battlefield tactics and technology (trenches and machine guns) as all the other players resulted in long drawn out bloody battles that typically resulted in a inconclusive outcomes with mass casualties. In WWII the Nazis showed us what years of heavy R&D can achieve when it comes to beating your enemies into submission. Remember -- most of Western Europe fell with barely a whimper and the sole hold-out, England was shelled relentlessly with weapons technology unmatched by even the US till well after the war.

Here's What Your Car Could Look Like In 2030

l0ungeb0y Car as Mobile Office? (144 comments)

I think a safer bet would be to predict that by 2030, the Average American, no longer able to afford a home or pay exorbitant rents in the major Metro Areas will turn to Self Driving RVs that feature a small smart car or scooter module for zipping around town to serve as their mode of transportation, mobile office and domicile

Complex Life May Be Possible In Only 10% of All Galaxies

l0ungeb0y What Exactly is "Life" Anyway (307 comments)

These "Astrophysicists" are incredibly short sighted if they think we have any idea as to the variety of life forms that exist throughout the universe from our limited view from our ecosystem on the Planet Earth. Sure -- we might have a pretty good understanding as to some of the life forms we might see in a yellow dwarf star system on a rocky planet with a nitrogen and oxygen based atmosphere -- but who's to say what life forms may exist in other galaxies, or what comprises an organic body or living entity? Why couldn't a nebula for instance, form some sort of organic neural network that allowed it to sense and convey information around itself? How could we say that a space dwelling life-form that subsists on radiation as we do on water is implausible? What type of life would we see in our own solar system on moons that have liquid methane oceans rather than liquid water?

Cops 101: NYC High School Teaches How To Behave During Stop-and-Frisk

l0ungeb0y Fearful Group To Be Avoided At All Costs (481 comments)

"It's unlikely that a high school student would come away with any other conclusion than the police are a fearful group to be avoided at all costs,"

That's EXACTLY what the police are these days and if you claim otherwise you are either a pro-police and pro-police state shill or hopelessly naive about the current state law enforcement and Criminal Justice inAmerica that is more focused on creating criminals so they can imprison people and confiscate property than keeping people safe. I myself am a white guy in my early 40s and have had Criminal Justice delivered unto me. My crime? Stepping outside to my home after a few drinks to talk to a police officer regarding a public disturbance. I was immediately cuffed without cause, hauled off to jail and when I asked why I was arrested, I was choked, stomped on, pinned down by 4 officers and suffocated till I nearly passed out from asphyxiation. I am now facing criminal charges for "public intoxication" and "obstruction of justice". And have to spend several thousand in legal costs to defend myself in court. A very high price to pay for trying to be a good samaritan. So yes -- fear the police And for fucks sake, avoid them at all costs.

Another Hint For Kryptos

l0ungeb0y Re:Why bother? (50 comments)

Because cracking the code is a rewarding achievement unto itself? You sound like a highly unimaginative workaholic who can't comprehend why someone would do something purely for the novelty, entertainment or pure enjoyment of the act itself. To you, everything must have some sort of tangible reward such as a paycheck or prize. I feel sad for you. I mean, why do you bother to live? For what purpose? Clearly you find no satisfaction here, aside from working for a paycheck.

President Obama Backs Regulation of Broadband As a Utility

l0ungeb0y Ted Cruz is Already Attacking Net Neutrality (706 comments)

Seems Ted Cruz is not wasting any time in opposing Obama on Net Neutrality by calling it "ObamaCare for the Internet", a laughably stupid hyperbolic statement only a complete moron would make -- unfortunately, he's got a support base of tens of millions even bigger morons who will think this idiotic statement is actually accurate.

We Are Running Out of Sand

l0ungeb0y Re:Coastal people live in their own universe (264 comments)

I'm sorry, are beaches not a resource? Are they not found in nature? Do they not provided a habitat that has it's own ecosystem? Do they not act as a buffer between the tides and habitable/irrigable land? The only person not rational here is you - because you are clearly too much of a fucktard to understand what a natural resource is, much less understand what value these resources might have aside from consumption and exploitation. Yes, beaches are a natural resource and yes, like other natural resources, they need protection from brainless consumer pieces of shit like you who take take take and eat eat eat like hungry little piggies with no thought of consequences or appreciation of nature at all.

Romney Being Blackmailed for $1.0M Bitcoins in Tax Records Scandal

l0ungeb0y l0ungeb0y writes  |  more than 2 years ago

l0ungeb0y writes "The Secret Service is investigating an attempt to blackmail Mitt Romney for $1,000,000 in "hard-to-trace Internet currency" to not divulge the contents of his purportedly stolen tax records. It would seem the "Streisand Effect" is getting teeth in the era of Anon and Wikileaks. Also noteworthy of discussion is Main Stream Media's refusal to reference Bitcoin by name. Tinfoil has anyone?"

Portfolio Update

l0ungeb0y l0ungeb0y writes  |  more than 10 years ago

Just added a couple pics from yesterdays shoot at Dalva.
Overall, the shoot went really well. I was very pleased with the makeup provided by Kamilla and the models were of course a pleasure to work with.

Being that I'm sitting on an 80gig dedicated server at a rather fab colo facility, I feel I need to get off my butt and put together my own portfolio page... the musecube thing doesn't cut it. So be looking for my link to update to a real online portfolio with many pics. On that vein, I'm also thinking about putting together an online mens rag, not porno, but something akin to Maxim but strictly photographic... but more on that later.

Double Trouble

l0ungeb0y l0ungeb0y writes  |  more than 10 years ago

Wow, getting lots of demand for my photoskills by models here in SF.

I just did a shoot last Saturday with Christy Holt which turned out very well.

This Sunday I will be doing a shoot on location with pin-up girls Susan Church and Dangerrr Doll. This shoot is already shaping up to be a very wild and fun happening complete with cat fight and plenty of that glam we all love. So be prepared for some very hot shots with these 2 done up to the 9's and at each others throats!

Also, Starri Noir has asked to pose as well. I am honored by that because of her affiliations with Eric Kroll, who's work I happen to greatly admire.
I am looking forward to doing some very obscure and artsy shots with her in the next week or so.
