Beer Price Crisis On the Horizon

lagomorpha2 Re:Have anyone run a bussiness? (316 comments)

I once worked at a place where we produced a lot of waste contaminated lubricant. We securely set this barrels, and a nice guy would come by and pump it out and reprocess it and sell for whatever it could be used for.

Ron Jeremy?

lagomorpha2 Milk/Beef prices as well? (316 comments)

Wouldn't eliminating a source of cheap feed also increase milk and beef prices?

Declassified Papers Hint US Uranium May Have Ended Up In Israeli Arms

Why bother trusting the US when they can simply use AIPAC to bribe our representatives into doing what benefits them?

CSIRO Scientists' Aquaculture Holy Grail: Fish-Free Prawn Food

lagomorpha2 Re:Not very secret (116 comments)

They gave it up when they said it was made from micro organisms... Its plankton.

So Soylent Novaq really is shrimp!

CSIRO Scientists' Aquaculture Holy Grail: Fish-Free Prawn Food

lagomorpha2 Re:Not very secret (116 comments)

My kingdom for mod points!

Whatever this Novaq thing is, it sure sounds tasty. I say we cut the middle-prawn out, and make Novaq a spreadable condiment for toast.

Come to think of it, Australians already do consume something suspiciously similar. I believe it's called Vegemite.

I wonder if humans fed on Novaq grow 40% faster and are healthier and more robust

Wal-Mart Sues Visa For $5 Billion For Rigging Card Swipe Fees

lagomorpha2 Re:Wi-Fi in the store (455 comments)

"a dedicated kiosk to exchange BTC for gift cards but could hold up the queue of guests if used for actual groceries."

Actually that's not a bad idea. Offer refillable gift cards online or at the Customer Service desk at a discount if bought with bitcoins that way people don't slow down the checkouts.

Gunshot Victims To Be Part of "Suspended Animation" Trials

lagomorpha2 Better ways to pay for college (357 comments)

"10 gunshot and stabbing victims will take part in the trials."

There's a double-blind trial I'm glad I didn't sign up for.

lagomorpha2 Bitcoin (455 comments)

I was thinking the same thing, install an experimental "bitcoin checkout line". It would probably be too confusing for 99%+ of their customers though.

Creationists Demand Equal Airtime With 'Cosmos'

lagomorpha2 Re:If you want a show that's half mythology... (667 comments)

Just go watch 'Vikings' on the history channel. Between the bleeding bible as an omen, and the 2nd wife making the prophecy about the eye, fair and impartial historical drama it seems not to be.

And they're representing it as *FACTUALLY ACCURATE*!

I'm not saying it was aliens, but it was aliens.

Creationists Demand Equal Airtime With 'Cosmos'

lagomorpha2 Re:Deal (667 comments)

** Unless you count "We wanna have an effing orgy and get wasted" as a philosophy. It's amazing how many people need some supernatural power's permission to get drunk and screw.

Don't belittle my people!

Creationists Demand Equal Airtime With 'Cosmos'

lagomorpha2 Deal (667 comments)

Equal time to creationists on Cosmos, equal time for actual knowledge (read: science) on all televangelist broadcasts. That sounds like a fair compromise.

Gates Warns of Software Replacing People; Greenspan Says H-1Bs Fix Inequity

lagomorpha2 Income Inequality (516 comments)

"Meanwhile, former Federal Reserve Chair Alan Greenspan believes one way to attack income inequity is to raise the H-1B cap. If the program were expanded, income wouldn't necessarily go down much, but it would go down enough to make an impact. Income inequality is a relative concept, he argued. "

The income inequality that is hurting the economy is not that some highly skilled people are making 6 figures and many workers only make 5 figures. The economic drain toward the top is from low wages and high corporate profits moving all the wealth to people who make 8-9 figures off capital gains. Expanding the H-1B cap would make the actual rich richer, the upper working class poorer, and not do much for the lower working class.

Whenever people attack the rich somehow it always gets deflected toward the upper working class and this confusion needs to stop.

Malaysian Flight Disappearance 'Deliberate'

lagomorpha2 blows my mind (436 comments)

"It slightly blows my mind that companies (airlines) would buy a piece of hardware that costs hundreds of millions of dollars, which is incredibly mobile and used to travel thousands of miles at a time, with a huge amount of liability (billions potentially), and not include any kind of built in, always-on, hard-wired tracking device. Especially in this day and age. "

Most airlines do, just not the Malaysians.

Religion Is Good For Your Brain

lagomorpha2 Re:"Religious Activities" not Religion per se (529 comments)

The Discovery article makes it pretty clear towards the end that it is not religious belief, but religious activities, that are likely responsible for the cognitive benefits.

So what you're saying is that social activity can give resistance to depression? Does Slashdot count or does one actually need to go outside? More research is needed.

Senator Accuses CIA of Snooping On Intelligence Committee Computers

lagomorpha2 Re:Hypocrisy (242 comments)

And she said that the CIA appears to have violated the Fourth Amendment, which bars unreasonable searches and seizures, as well as various federal laws and a presidential executive order that prevents the agency from conducting domestic searches and surveillance.

I don't think she even realizes how hypocritical she is. Surveillance and secrecy are all cool, unless they happen to apply to her. Then it is her -- "Fourth Amendment!"

This is the same woman who is one of the strongest supporters of gun control while she herself has one of the few concealed carry licenses in California. I don't think she even considers hypocrisy something to be ashamed of.

Senator Accuses CIA of Snooping On Intelligence Committee Computers

lagomorpha2 Re:I won't hold my breath (242 comments)

As for us, asshole Feinstein look at us as if we are peons, slaves for the elites, that we do not have any right to enjoy the protection granted by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and that we ought to be stripped of everything, and kow-tow to her and her kinds.

I sometimes wonder how monsters like Feinstein get any votes at all while the likes of Feingold can lose to a climate change denier. We have only ourselves to blame.

Personally I blame California.
