Thief Posts His Photo To Facebook Victim's Account
So I am guessing the next pic will be of Ben Stein. Must have been a very large 15yr old, because the jacket fits Shaq o' so well. Lol
Whitehat Hacker Moxie Marlinspike's Laptop, Cellphones Seized
I think it would take a little more than four years. Unless you are working from different numbers than whats readily available with a quick Google search.
9/11 US death toll about 3000
Yearly alcohol deaths about 85,000 of course that is not counting all of the deaths from drunk people violently killing another person with a gun, knife, etc...
So it would be more like 28 yrs
World's First Molten-Salt Solar Plant Opens
What about the increase of the cost of power over time. Power will not always start at $00.10 a kwh. Humans in general don't conserve resources, we use as much as we have. Don't get me wrong there are a few of us out there that know how to conserve, but that is not the norm.
Top Secret America
This my friend is spot on. I happen to work for one of those contractors for the time being. I have come to the same conclusion, but my answer is to get my small business approved for gov't contracting. If more of us don't do this the status quo will remain. Complaining is only the start, we must take the extra step and do something.
US Confirms Underwater Oil Plume
Here is something for everyone in America to think about. I recently had a house built. During this process I was required to have a gas shutoff valve connected at the point of entry to the house and at the stove. Now if I am required to have a double fail safe on my home, how is it possible for BP to get away with one shutoff valve (Blowout Preventer..) ????? Where are we headed if we can't have basic saftey regulation passed without any hitches. Does Murphy's Law ring a bell anywhere????
Time For Universal Data Plans?
I don't think "unlimited" plans ever made much sense because some people will abuse it.
If something is advertised as unlimited how can you abuse it? You are placing the blame on the wrong side of the equation. Lets look at it this way... An air carrier over books a plane, and all passengers show up for said flight. By your logic it is the passengers fault that someone will have to be put on another plane. If the network can't handle unlimited use then don't advertise one. Or you may just over book the network and some passengers/packets will have to wait for another flight/pipe.
When the US Government Built Ultra-Safe Cars
Make that ... Except Big Oil = Gov't. Either way Big Oil still owns the world... Anyone up for a nice lobster bisque with nice sweet crude sauce :-D
When the US Government Built Ultra-Safe Cars
This sounds like the prequel to "Who killed the electric car?" Where Big Oil = Gov't.
Improving Education Through Better Teachers
Once again we want to legislate before using common sense. The problem is with the parents not being involved enough. The teachers can only do so much. If parents forced their children to learn while at home instead of watching the idiot box all day things would change. So many of our problems in the country all start with the parents.
Responsibility and accountability.
Vivek Kundra On US Government Inefficiency
This is not a problem of gov't. This happens in all forms of commerce public or private sector. The common factor is the HUMAN in the loop. Let me clarify that it is not all humans but there are those among us that side step all responsibility and accountability. They look for positions of protection and abuse them. Just look at the abuse of tenure in the school systems. Sorry to say it but the problem can not be solved unless we change our culture.
I see this everyday but since I don't have any social connections to management I am pretty much powerless to act. If I do act it would be me on the way out the door. Sad but very true.

$33 Million In Poker Winnings Seized By US Govt
This is just the start of what a Gov't scrambling to increase revenues will do. I have an equation that will amuse everyone.
Insurance company that was to big + Banks that were to big to fail = ????
Yep a Gov't that is to big to fail, hide your wallets everyone. This is only a preview of whats to come. Guess what else I don't blame this on Obama or Bush for that matter. I blame the citizens. We must become a nation of informed citizens if we want to compete in the global market in the future.
Time to make some tough decisions...
