UK Bans Sending Books To Prisoners

lisaparratt Oh well. (220 comments)

I guess it's more important to keep the slaves in check, and the ministers looking good to the far right, than it is to rehabilitate the prisoners.

lisaparratt It looks like a very nice library (216 comments)

It looks like a very nice library.

Study Finds Methane Leaks Negate Benefits of Natural Gas-Powered Vehicles

lisaparratt Re:Manipulative headline (102 comments)

I didn't say become a freegan micromanaging communist, I said solve the energy problem. I'm pretty sure you'd be better off in 200 years with the technological benefits 180+ years of free energy would unlock. The environmental stuff is pure bonus.

Study Finds Methane Leaks Negate Benefits of Natural Gas-Powered Vehicles

lisaparratt Re:Manipulative headline (102 comments)

Those are both aspects of making it practicable. The main method I'd recommend for solving that issue is to ignore the drooling masses, and just get the fuckers built. They'll soon shut up once they're addicted to the delicious delicious energy, now with free clean air!

Study Finds Methane Leaks Negate Benefits of Natural Gas-Powered Vehicles

lisaparratt Re:Manipulative headline (102 comments)

Or, you know, get a little perspective, realise that those imaginary shiny pennies are inconsequential compared to the long term survival of our species, and just do what it takes to make fission/fusion/solar a practicable, virtually endless, virtually free supply, and just make this whole energy scarcity issue vanish in a puff of science.

But then they wouldn't be able to rinse us common folk for every penny we've got through fuel costs and associated taxes, would they?

FSF's Richard Stallman Calls LLVM a 'Terrible Setback'

lisaparratt Re:...but if you want free software to improve... (1098 comments)

Because LLVM trusted the license, rather than making the compiler internals so opaque and baroque that no one could isolate, say, the parser.

Critics Reassess Starship Troopers As a Misunderstood Masterpiece

lisaparratt You what? (726 comments)

It really took Americans 16 years to work this out? To me, the satire was brazenly obvious the moment I watched it for the first time all those years ago.
