Jenny McCarthy: "I Am Not Anti-Vaccine'"
"Mercury is a known neurotoxin and is proven to kill brain neurons."
Mercury is a known element that naturally is part of the human body. Look at the FDA thimerosal content of vaccines currently mandated and add them all up (far over what a single person gets from vaccines) - it totals to 239.2 micrograms of mercury. How much mercury is in a newborn of average weight? 303 micrograms. How much mercury is in an average adult? 6 milligrams. Quit spreading this bullshit. Eat some tuna lately? you took in some mercury and you're doing just fine. Yes, there is an unsafe amount, but the fact that remains is the amount in vaccines is minuscule to what the human body manages.

Looks like mammoths are able to breathe under water as well as be alive before the Christian god created the universe. Damn you Satan, quit tricking with us!
Qt 5.1 Adds Android and iOS Support
Apple uses their Windows port of the QuickTime framework for iTunes. In OS X, the QuickTime framework is taken advantage of in too many apps to count. So yeah, people are still stuck using what you refer to generically as QuickTime. You didn't say something specific, like "QuickTime Player".
QuickTime is gonna be around for a while.
KDE's Calligra Office Suite For Android Released
Which MAC are you talking about? It's an acronym for more things than you may know.
If you're referring to the shortened nick for Macintosh, spell it as so. As for MAC, well you're just feeding the bad habit that people on the internet somehow created. I personally read it as Media Access Control initially (when people type MAC, referring to anything). Anyways. It's a simple name. Learn how to type it right.
Court Rules Passwords+Secret Questions=Secure eBanking
I find it upsetting that my online access to my bank account has a password limit of 10 characters which are also limited to letters and numbers. I've called and complained, but of course the silly stupid customer doesn't know anything about anything. Here's the exact limits according to their website:
Password must be between 7 and 10 alpha-numeric characters. Acceptable characters for passwords include combinations of any of the following characters: a-z, A-Z, 0-9, !, @, #, $, %, ^, &, *, (, or )
I hate retarded security.

Embedded Linux 1-Second Cold Boot To QT
can we please get back to arguing now?
Yeah, right after I finish beating Doom III by "I.D." software running on my "MAC".
I wouldn't be surprised if the poster pronounces daemon as "daymon" either. The geek ego sure seems to get in the way of learning how to pronounce things. It looks like devs these days will have to provide audio files to show how to pronounce their work.
*shakes his head at correct pronunciation deniers*
Placebos Work -- Even Without Deception
The claim that most people are not dehydrated has never been proven in any credible manner, why do you believe it to be true.
This is "prove that God doesn't exist" all over again. You are making the claim that it does. You provide the evidence.

Conservative Textbook Curriculum Passes Final Vote In Texas
My little brother is a Boy Scout, so I've attended some of the ceremonies. One thing that's always struck me is there's usually a period in which the leader of the ceremony says something along the lines of "We now ask that you join us in a moment of silence/prayer (I don't remember which), each in your own way." followed by the moment of silence.
Why couldn't the schools take the same attitude? It's not that acknowledging religion is illegal/unconstitutional, it's that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" (although that, of course, only applies to Congress, not the states).
I was kicked out of Boy Scouts when I was 15 when I became confident in the lack of a god, a Christian god to be specific of what I was taught as a child.
The reason I got kicked out was because I didn't want to remain silent of my lack of such a belief.
You can believe that those silences lack specific meaning all you want, I know for a fact that you need to bow down and be reverent to a higher power, or if you don't you need to keep your mouth shut in order to be and remain a Boy Scout, and that prayer was quite regular in ceremonies. Really really bad example you gave.
for references other than my personal ones: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boy_Scouts_of_America_membership_controversies
As for having silences in school, I personally would have a big issue in practicing these "silences" as a standard for all students in a tax funded school. No one needs to announce and practice a silence time at all, you have the right to have your personal silence time all you want, just don't practice it on my child, no matter how broad you define it.

Wikileaks Releases Video of Journalist Killings
Did some have weapons? YES. Kills authorized? YES. It's the people in the van helping the wounded that are the crime.
You never shoot wounded, ever, ever, ever.
Though I mentioned this before I'll mention it again - Iraqi law under Saddam and was continued by Paul Bremmer allows civilians to carry ak-47s.
Imagine the military wiping out a bunch of American civilians because someone was carrying a rifle, and had the right to carry that rifle in public! That's what the situation was here. And of course if you watched the video it was a camera, not RPG.
Wikileaks Releases Video of Journalist Killings
WikiLeaks commented that there was a possibility that at least one person had a weapon.
Just to note, police officers, military and citizens - every Iraqi man is allowed to personally own an ak-47. It was Iraqi law under Saddam and was continued by Paul Bremmer.
Someone carrying around an ak-47 is doing it because they have the right to do it, especially out in public like that.
Nvidia Drops Support For Its Open Source Driver
Them not just providing closed source Linux drivers for x86 32/64, but also covering closed source drivers (that work well!) for x86 32 bit support for Solaris and FreeBSD. Apple actually writes the I/O Kit drivers for NVIDIA cards for their OS and they are known to be a little behind. It would be nice for NVIDIA themselves to cover it but whatever.
As the open source whore that I am I've still preferred NVIDIA, though them suddenly dropping unix based OS support other than Linux will suck horribly. All in all I've just found them to be a great example of a company who wants to keep their technology closed up yet goes the extra mile in keeping their hardware compatible and "controllable" with many different software. Of course other BSD support would be sweet but FreeBSD support is more than enough to stay ahead of other hardware vendors who keep their shit closed.
Woman Live-Tweets Her Abortion
Similarly, when I say “merry Christmas”, I’m not ordering you to be happy because Jesus was born on this day (he wasn’t, as I’m sure we’re all aware). I’m wishing you to be happy
Sorry man, but telling me to have a merry christmas (Christ's Mass) has a little more meaning than "I wish you to be happy." It sort of feels like shit when people tell you to have a happy religious day that you don't celebrate because of cultural and religious differences. Happy holidays is more than enough. Telling people to enjoy the celebration that YOU are having is disrespectful. Sorry man. People who complain about how there are policies to not be holiday specific when wishing a good day during December (whaah Christmas is what everyone celebrates, im not stoopid) are people who need to get out of their little cultural bubble.
By the way, why celebrate a mass of a man who was born on a completely different day other than the date that all the other sun gods and heros where born on in pagan religions? It doesn't matter to you. Tradition and the norm matters to you clone53421, which is why you hate the experience of mixed culture. Not everyone celebrates Christmas. Telling them to have a merry Christmas makes them feel disrespected in a varying amount depending on the person and how serious they take their own beliefs. So for fucks sake show some tolerance. Get over it.
Religion in Video Games
I've read some reviews of Left Behind - Eternal Forces from Christians themselves, and even they felt that evangelizing Jesus and the general theme of the game sort of ruined the fun of it.
