It Takes 2.99 Gigajoules To Vaporize a Human Body
You are correct, sir. I can tell you this because I have lived there. Plus I am English, and most of us just know this.
Actually, Leicester is easy compared to some place names in England. Shrewsbury is interesting, as not even the locals can agree (~"Shroos-b'ry" [rhymes with "shoes"] vs. ~"Shrose-bury" [rhymes with "throws"]) (pardon my phonetics [not to mention my nested parentheses]). I think it has something to do with which side of the river you live, but I haven't actually lived there so don't know the full details.
Probably best not to mention Slaithwaite or Featherstonehaugh.

IQ 'a Myth,' Study Says
I was a MENSA member for a very short while. They told me I had an IQ of 158. I didn't know what it meant, so maybe I wasn't that smart. I was smart enough to work out within the first 12 months that the overpriced annual subscription bought me nothing but a mag full of spam, and the opportunity to associate with a bunch of people who like to feel smart.

Bogus Bad Piggies Plug-Ins Infect 80,000
First of all, I didn't download any piggies, good or bad, at all. But as someone who doesn't generally get bitten in the ass by this sort of thing, I'm concerned that I don't understand why I would be expected to know which versions of a game exist or do not. What is it that makes a Chrome version of the game so obviously a trap? Or am I really dumb? Please be gentle.
Torvalds calls Romney 'a f***ing moron'
Anyone who believes that specialists ought not to have or to express opinions outside of their field is a f***ing moron. Especially if they believe that one person's outspokenness reflects on an entire community. That would be like suggesting that every moronic thing Mitt Romney says reflects poorly on the Republican community.

Why Distributing Music As 24-bit/192kHz Downloads Is Pointless
Often, the whole "hifi" chain, interconnects, etc., can be vulnerable to noise.
I'm pretty fussy, but I find (when listening to lossless sources) my Sony MDR-7509HD headphones give pleasing results plugged into the onboard Realtek Audio system my PC.
Seriously, give it a try if you haven't already.

Ext3, ext4, xfs and btrfs filesystems comparison o
I got as far as "... ext3 is limited to 2 TB volumes", and lost confidence. Given that the more mature ext3 is in fact limited not to 2T, but to 16T volumes (or, if you have an OS that can manage 8K clusters, 32T) , you might not be quite as ready as Gionatan (the author) to dismiss it.
