Apparent Islamic Terrorism Strikes Sydney

meglon Re: Don't worry guys... (873 comments)

I think, mayhaps, you need to do a little more learning on things you attempt to speak about: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A...

Some of the crusades came about from the Catholic churches desire to expand their empire, others came about because the Catholic church decided it needed to kill some Christians that weren't giving the church enough money.

Christianity and Islam are the same... the masses defer to the few leaders "interpretations" of massively convoluted texts, while the most radical use convoluted interpretations of those texts to justify their personal hatreds and bigotries. Your opinion of Christianity is warped because YOU claim to be Christian, and YOUR side can do no wrong. You want to claim anything THEY do is terrorism, when if YOUR side did the same thing, it's not terrorism. It's called fucking hypocrisy.

As for "their flag"... who's? There's all sorts of flags by all sorts of groups and countries that are predominantly Muslim... and they mean different things. Your logic is just stupid on this.... by your logic, everyone in Mississippi is an anti-American insurrectionist that needs to be hung because their state incorporates the confederate battle flag. See... stupid.

NASA Gets 2% Boost To Science Budget

meglon Re:2% is nothing (121 comments)

Same thing they fly in now... nothing. The F-35 program, all 1.45 TRILLION of it's "current" projected cost and near decade long delays has produced a couple test planes that can't turn, can't climb, can't run, and can't fight worth a shit. It is an inferior piece of crap that cowards in congress keep funneling money to because they're cowards.

Obama's Immigration Order To Give Tech Industry Some, Leave 'Em Wanting More

meglon Re:I bet Infosys and Tata are dancing in the stree (186 comments)

Sorry, being my age i heard the same stupid fucking crap from the same stupid fucking people back when Reagan gave amnesty to 7 million. Dipshit doomsayers like you just continue repeating the same fucking stupidity regardless of what actually happens, and you're too fucking stupid to look back and see reality. If you're going to complain about adding uneducated people to the workforce, perhaps you should go be an activist in Texas where the majority of high school students don't have the basic education to be able to get into a state college; or maybe Alabama where barely 70% of kids even graduate high school. I get it though, people like you just have to have someone else to blame for everything so you don't have to take that long hard look in the mirror to see how fucked up you are yourself.

When We Don't Like the Solution, We Deny the Problem

meglon Re:yep. Greenpeace founder says nuclear required (282 comments)

You mean this lying sack of shit preying on truly stupid fucking idiots? He's an industry shill looking to make money regardless of the outcome.

http://mediamatters.org/resear...

Patrick Moore frequently portrays himself as a founder or co-founder of Greenpeace, and many news outlets have repeated this characterization. Although Mr. Moore played a significant role in Greenpeace Canada for several years, he did not found Greenpeace. Phil Cotes, Irving Stowe, and Jim Bohlen founded Greenpeace in 1970. Patrick Moore applied for a berth on the Phyllis Cormack in March, 1971 after the organization had already been in existence for a year. A copy of his application letter and Greenpeace's response are available here (PDF). [Greenpeace, 12/7/10]

What's sad is there's so many complete fucking morons in this country who believe these lying sacks of shit who are just out to make a buck.

When We Don't Like the Solution, We Deny the Problem

meglon Re:I wish there was a more reasonable option (282 comments)

The FBI doesn't even distinguish this kind of crime in a separate category. I think more on point though, is the summaries author making the ASSUMPTION that having looser/fewer gun regulations somehow makes us safer, when evidence shows that states that have looser/fewer gun regulations also have higher murder rates ( http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/hi... ). Somewhere in there is another social science fuck-up on drawing the wrong conclusion to the study they made... perhaps somewhere along the line of something like... some people can deal with the evidence presented by reality, others can't, or don't want to.

Russia Takes Down Steve Jobs Memorial After Apple's Tim Cook Comes Out

meglon Re:Terrible (430 comments)

Sodomy does not mean anal sex. Sodomy refers what went down in Sodom.

...only to 2000 year old myth writers. Sodomy, defined both in common usage and legal usage means exactly that. Then again, if you actually read the story in the old testament, the angels get pissed when he offers up his virgin daughters to the crowd (female virginity being a HUGE thing back then) so they won't take the angels.

Reactions To Disgusting Images Predict a Persons Political Ideology

meglon Re:Strange how liberals (330 comments)

Strange how conservatives very actively want to take us back to the good old days of conservative dominance of WW2 Germany, Italy and Japan. I'd rather be a socialist worried about the welfare of people rather than a fascist worried about power and money at the expense of the people. I guess a good rule would be: don't put sociopaths in positions of power... obviously something you fascists haven't learned yet as that's exactly what you're still trying to do.

Boo! The House Majority PAC Is Watching You

meglon Re:Not New (468 comments)

What article? This is a self contained whine complaining that democrats are doing something that republicans do as well, from an "anonymous reader." Had this "anonymous reader" been an "anonymous writer," their post would have been started at 0, but as everyone knows, /. has a very vocal cadre of conservative fringe government haters who use negative modding to weed out anyone who speaks out against their shared delusion. It talks about liberal attempts because they're trying to lie through omission, and gin up outrage by ignoring the fact that republican groups do the exact same thing.

I don't know which is worse, the fact that these people expect their base to be so gullible that they can lie with impunity and never get caught, or the fact that on the rare occasion they are caught, their base simply doesn't give a shit they've been lied to as long as it fits their party politics.

Solar System's Water Is Older Than the Sun

meglon Re:Score one for the other team (173 comments)

There is no meaningful argument that will alter the completely, stupidly, fucked in the head position you've taken. We get it.. you're delusional, and don't have even a passing acquaintance with reality, but we're too tired of other fucked in the head people like you blathering on about the same stupid fucking shit while derailing every fucking thread.

The meaningful argument is: you're delusional, and there has never, ever, been a single shred of evidence, EVER, for the existence of a god or many gods. Until you pony up some of that, then you're specific "god" is of no more use or importance than someone elses' "god" even if it happens to be a 6 foot tall invisible rabbit who created the universe through farting.

Play your word games as much s you want... you still don't sound like anything other than "delusional."

Emails Cast Unflattering Light On Internal Politics of Healthcare.gov Rollout

meglon Re:Not surprising (392 comments)

Perhaps you should be looking in the mirror as you recite your post. The only people that can't see Issa is a full of shit partisan hack are the radically indoctrinated republicans who don't give a fuck about this country, just themselves.... everyone else see's his idiocy for what it is. The ONLY thing Issa has done is attempt to create scandals, just like Ggggnewt and his dickless wonders tried to do with Clinton. The downside (for republicans) is, Issa's so fucking stupid they keep blowing up in his face. Doesn't matter to the tried-and-true mental cases of the teabagger conspiracy base, but they're all fucked in the head anyway.

Emails Cast Unflattering Light On Internal Politics of Healthcare.gov Rollout

meglon Re:Not surprising (392 comments)

Actually you missed option #3: Just another bullshit partisan fuckwad who'd rather score political points for the GOP rather than do his fucking job.

Seriously, when you see people badmouth conservatives and the GOP... people like you are the reason. Whiny little asshats who can't govern, but throw tantrums like toddlers with the best of them. Issa is nothing more than a political twat. He doesn't give a flying fuck about this country, he just wants to be in power.... and fucking idiots elect him because he has an (R) behind his name, not because he's a good representative or even a decent person.

You can play your stupid fucking word games, and twist your spin however you want... but anyone with even a single brain cell left can see Issa and his bullshit are ONLY about politics.

Emails Cast Unflattering Light On Internal Politics of Healthcare.gov Rollout

meglon Not surprising (392 comments)

Not surprising at all. Darrell Issa has attempted to turn everything into some huge scandalous coverup purely for political gain. He's abused his office repeatedly by pushing investigations to discredit the administration, including leaking partial and misleading emails and reports along the way that he spins to show his partisan abuse is somehow legitimate, yet every time, with minimal investigation, he's shown to be taking things out of context and is intentionally trying to deceive the public. This is simply more of the same... a partisan hack attack using (and abusing) his office.

No one is surprised by this blatant abuse continues, yet those mental midgets who bought into all the rest of his lies and fake scandals will continue to. It's politics, and he's playing to his base.... nothing more than propaganda.

Air Force Space Fence Being Shut Down

meglon (1001833) writes "NASA will no longer have real time information on tracking orbital debris if the order of Gen. William Shelton, commander of Air Force Space Command, is carried out. The Space Fence, the only monitoring system of it's kind, will cease function on October 1st. Start saying goodby to all your favorite telecommunication and GPS satellites now."

Solar Stormwatch crowdsourcing

meglon meglon writes  |  more than 4 years ago

meglon (1001833) writes "News flash on the sun: It's Hot!

The fine folks at Galaxy Zoo have just launched another mission oriented site at http://solarstormwatch.com/

Solar Stormwatch will use volunteers to spot and track solar storms and ejecta, with hopes of understanding them a bit better, and possibly mitigating some of the potential damage from them on us poor earthlings. Perusing feeds from collected from NASA's STEREO spacecrafts, you can also happen upon comets (which is pretty cool). The interface is nice and clean, and while the video's are somewhat limited in scope, but it's a worthwhile project that could potentially save a few lives, and you never know, maybe they'll name a comet after you (if you find one before anyone else)."
