TSA Orders Searches of Valet Parked Car At Airport

nemui-chan Re:And the story is...? (453 comments)

Mostly because they are in desperate need to justify their budget. They've never caught a terrorist, so they're trying to catch other people doing illegal things before they get shut down for wasting tax payer dollars.

Federal Gun Control Requires IT Overhaul

nemui-chan Re:Reduce gun violence? (436 comments)

Last I checked, the president's armed guards (or Rosie O'Donnell's, or anyone else for that matter) aren't carrying military style assault rifles or hand guns with extended clips. If you haven't read the articles that he's proposing, stop spouting off about things you don't know enough about.

nemui-chan Re:Motorcycles? (1184 comments)

Wow. I really wish I got that much mileage out of my bike. I'm running a 750cc katana, and I get closer to 35. I'm also a 6'4", 290 lb guy though.

Targeted TV Ads: Silver Bullet Or Privacy Nightmare?

nemui-chan Re:How about NO (96 comments)

Sadly I don't think cable will die off. The fact that they have all the redundant crap repeated over and over is because people watch it. If they didn't, they wouldn't keep making it. So I don't think you should hold your breath until "Teen Mom", "Toddlers in Tiaras" and "That Other Trainwreck Of a Show" stop airing.

I don't claim to understand why people like that crap, but based on the fact that it keeps coming out, its apparent they do.

Telcos Oppose Bill To Respect 4th Amendment

nemui-chan Re:Wouldn't that reduce the financial burden? (190 comments)

It would appear so. And telcos always pass that savings onto the consumer... *cough*

It could place providers in the position of requiring warrants for all law enforcement requests.

Wouldn't that reduce the labor/financial burden on the telcos?

The telcos must be acting at the request of politicians, in exchange for good treatment by the politicians on behalf of the telcos on other unrelated matters.

Snoozing Pilot Mistakes Venus For Aircraft; Panic, Injuries Ensue

nemui-chan Thankfully Not... (307 comments)

Luckily it wasn't in America. If it was, the TSA would stop allowing pilots through checkpoints, since they're clearly a flight risk.

If you do not want USA to have control over your domain get one in a freedom loving country.

What "freedom loving country" would you suggest? no, this is not an attempt to troll, I'm seriously looking for one.

Forensic Experts Say Screams Were Not Zimmerman's

nemui-chan Re:So what? (1046 comments)

The fact that he has ANY injury means that his story adds up.

No, it doesn't. The fact that he has an injury only means that there was a fight. It doesn't mean he's telling the truth, and to think that it does mean that would be idiotic.

Forensic Experts Say Screams Were Not Zimmerman's

nemui-chan Re:So what? (1046 comments)

but on it's most underlying level, an unarmed boy was shot by a large adult with a gun and an arrest wasn't made.

Lets be clear... It was an unarmed boy that the man went to the effort of following down the street against the express suggestions of the 911 dispatcher that was telling him he should not follow him. He WENT TO EXTRA EFFORT to follow the boy and shoot him.

Javascript Game of Tron In 226 Bytes

nemui-chan You mean "Nibbles" or "Worm"? (115 comments)

I was super excited when I found out someone had done this for tron... Until I realized it was actually the old qbasic nibbles or worm game. This is neat and all, but its not tron. Its not even the tron light cycle game since you play by yourself. Oh well.
