Politicians Worldwide Asking Questions About ACTA

nerdin Re:the copyright bubble (101 comments)

...and those high quality Nike shoes were made in a [put your favorite asian country here] for $1.20 USD in a child-labor sweatshop. So any high-quality sweatshop in a underdeveloped country can make good shoes, why then pay Nike 60 bucks for something you could actually get for 5? Because of Nike trademark? That's a pathetic joke.

Large Hadron Collider Scientist Arrested For al-Qaeda Ties

nerdin A word of warning. (245 comments)

Given the famous six degrees, you have "some suspected link" to Al-Qaeda, American government, the LHC construction team, some defunct communist party, the Cosa Nostra, any of the Bildenberg conspirators and the Bush Family. All at the same time.
So "somewhere" you are pretty suspicious of "something" that can lead to your arrest. In some instances you can simply be detained without warrant or legal representation, kept isolated in an island for any of your links.
You have been warned. Go back to your closet.

So let's preserve his memory and -late better than never- recognize his role in IT industry, spanning a least 2 generations of sysadmins"
