Unintended Consequences For Traffic Safety Feature

neglogic love it (579 comments)

I love these crosswalk countdown timers at intersections. Perfect for letting you know if you can make the light or need to forget it and brake. I'm not sure how the timers are increasing pedestrian fatalities, since the only people crossing should be with the flow of traffic, not across it.

Did they recycle the lost e-mails also? I hate to just throw away those electrons, better to recycle them.

I'm amazed that someone on Slashdot knows about EPLRS and furthermore knows that it was initially intended for positioning only.

The Gradual Death of the Brick and Mortar Tech Store

neglogic Good riddance (491 comments)

I say good riddance to Best Buy. They are all actively offensive, blaring loud music as you walk in. They did have the best price on Wiimotes lately, so I bought them there. Needless to say, I spent the least amount of time in the store as possible.

Publicly Available Russian Election Results Hint At Fraud

neglogic Re:Electronic Voting (304 comments)

she had to fight with them over residency because the Republicans running voter registration were trying to claim that spouses living on military base property were not "in the state" for purposes of residency.

So was she disenfranchised or not? You say "trying" as if they never succeeded.

Let's read your article, shall we you fucking liar?

What did I lie about? You claimed Republicans were trying to prevent military absentee ballots from being counted, I found a recent law that supports and encourages this practice, which apparently is being poorly implemented by Obama. The only lie is your assertion that Republicans are trying to prevent military from voting absentee, it looks like Obama is doing that all on his own.

I couldn't follow the rest of your rant, it's just too convoluted.

Publicly Available Russian Election Results Hint At Fraud

neglogic Re:Electronic Voting (304 comments)

Actually, YES. Military veterans who can't operate a car due to blinding or paralysis or leg amputation, for starters.

So, that would only prevent them from getting a driver's license. They can get no other form of ID?

Republicans have also been on the forefront of trying to get as many absentee military ballots thrown out as possible,

If it's a giant Republican conspiracy, then why did Congress pass a law supporting absentee military ballots that Obama has been slow to implement? http://washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/op-eds/2011/07/obamas-bumblers-damage-military-voting-rights

since the rank-and-file are paid shit wages thanks to the machinations of those same Republicans and tend, being poor and supporting families on wages that require public assistance (fully 40% of the US military families are so poor they qualify for food stamps!),

Not true: "A 2003 Department of Defense study, the most recent available, found that 2,100 active-duty members received food stamps in 2002...The fact that some enlisted members and even a few officers received (food stamps) was more a result of larger household sizes and living in government quarters than an indicator of inadequate military compensation." http://www.military.com/news/article/2011/food-stamp-use-at-military-commissaries-up-sharply.html

Oh, and let's not forget the machinations of Republicans trying to make it as difficult as possible for military spouses to vote in the state they live in when their spouse is shipped to another "home base" in another state. My aunt was disenfranchised by the lying Republican assholes for 5 years due to all that crap.

Yes, I'm sure there is a giant conspiracy to prevent your aunt from voting. I don't think it takes 5 years to establish state residency anywhere.

New Robots Developed To Climb Walls

neglogic Re:Electroadhesive robots (110 comments)

You got me - I'm FOR cluster bombs everywhere. Putting aside the issue of the effectiveness of cluster bombs, my only point was that most of the "100 nations" probably don't have cluster bombs (or an effective air force to use them) in the first place. Their "ban" is in name only.
