Please tell me that is a typo and not something I have to look up on Urban Dictionary?

So that whole movie was just an around about way to get or cultists to unknowingly summon Mighty Cthulhu? I all makes sense now.
US Uncorks $16M For 17 Projects To Capture Wave Energy
I'm sure syfy could make a weekly (or should that be weakly?) movie about it.
Huge Canyon Discovered Under Greenland Ice
Maybe HPL should have started his stories out with a variation of the standard crime re-enactment disclaimer: "Some names and places have been changed to protect the sane."
Federal Judge Rules NYC "Stop and Frisk" Violated Rights
We have so many laws I wouldn't be surprised if most crime was actually *accidental*.
"I'm sorry, your honor, I had no idea that was illegal." should be a valid defense against some laws these days.

...I know it took hundreds of years before people really accepted the Earth is flat, and perhaps it will take even longer before people truly embrace unrestricted information exchange; But it is an inevitability...
I still don't believe the Earth is flat. But I agree with the rest of your statement.
In a Security Test, 3-D Printed Gun Smuggled Into Israeli Parliament
Then the psych wards would be filled with the aftermath of your passing, so it really is a catch-22.
The Average Movie Theater Has Hundreds of Screens
Maybe they meant shitty because they don't throw them out on the first strike?
NSA Revelation Leads FTC To Propose "Reclaim Your Name" Initiative
I have the opposite problem with my post office. The address can be spelled perfectly but it might end up at my neighbor's house. I know this because it happens so frequently we all have to play nice or we'd all be missing bills, letters from friends, etc. When it gets really bad one or more of us will jump through the hoops to complain to the post office and it will get better for a while, and then slide right back to where it is now.
D-Wave Large-Scale Quantum Chip Validated, Says USC Team
You can either know the exact equation or it's exact location on the internet, but the Uncertainty principle clearly says you can't know both at the same time. We obviously know which he chose now.
The DNA Data Deluge
I propose we call this new data method Data Neutral Assembly.
Fear of Thinking War Machines May Push U.S. To Exascale
As long as my plan gets funded, too, I'd be okay with it. It goes something like this, "As soon as you plan to build a device that would inhibit the basic Civil liberties of anyone anywhere (Right to Trial, Freedom to Gather, etc) you will be vaporized by a lightning bolt and entombed in in the Earth for all eternity."

Transgendered Folks Encountering Document/Database ID Hassles
Not true for most of the /. crowd, you insensitive clod!
New Bill Would Declassify FISC Opinions
I like that, but how do you count the people involved? If they were targeting Bin Laden but wanted to wire tap someone here in the US to get intel and there are 3 phones believed to belong to that person, but 1 of then in a household with 5 people living there and one is a pay phone, how many people are involved in that? 1? 1 plus however many people they call or get called by? 6? 6 + people called? I think that kind of metric would need to be worked out in detail because beforehand because they will use it against this sort of thing.
And the FBI routinely ignores requires that are difficult to comply with (or at least used to). I recall a news story back several years ago about a requirement that after a certain period of time they were (maybe not now, I have no idea) required to notified people who had their conversations recorded after a certain period of time if charges were not brought against them. In the case of payphones, they didn't know how to contact most of those people, so they did nothing. They didn't post a sign at the payphone, made no attempt to contact the other end of the call (they had the number dialed at least) because they said it was too troublesome. I had no idea the law just allowed them to ignore portions that were too troublesome to deal with.
No Black Hole Or Magnetic Monopole: Tunguska Really Was a Meteor
Maybe the AC just thinks he's in the US (and is wrong)? I'm pretty sure I am and the link worked fine for me. Wait, maybe I'm the one who is wrong?!?
