Rosetta Takes Stunning Self-Portrait 10 Miles From Comet's Surface

oodaloop Re:Miles? (62 comments)

The outcry seems to be mostly from self-righteous Europeans who look down on anyone using any unit that came before the metric system. Most Americans I know don't have strong feelings either way about the whole thing.

No Nobel For Nick Holonyak Jr, Father of the LED

oodaloop Re:The Nobel Prize Committee blew it (276 comments)

And where does the buck stop in this argument? Or should Nobels drift endlessly backwards to Newton, Leibniz, Aristotle, Plato ... Thales of Miletus. Thales of Miletus? All Nobels go to him?

The Nobel prize is never given posthumously. That's where it stops.

Umm... He's STILL ALIVE.

Which one of those is still alive?

Why Military Personnel Make the Best IT Pros

oodaloop Re:Military personnel have a different attitude... (299 comments)

Systems are delivered ready-to-use, and the military personnel are there to follow the book to keep them running

Not even close. Former Marine, and current defense contractor here. DoD systems need constant work, and work-arounds. Finding ways to get things done, despite the systems provided, is part of daily military life.

Military branches are generally conservative in nature because they must stick with what works

Not in today's world. What worked in the last war won't work in the next one, and everyone recognizes the need to innovate and be flexible.

Theirs is not develop new doctrine, but to follow the existing doctrine until it's replaced for them.

Doctrine is ever changing, and if it doesn't work, it's abandoned.

You clearly have zero experience with the military. We'd all appreciate it if you just kept quiet instead of using your outdated stereotypes and things you've seen in the movies.

Past Measurements May Have Missed Massive Ocean Warming

oodaloop Re:please no (423 comments)

No. Out of 100 times they say there is a 10% chance of rain, it rains 10 times. Weather models are extraordinarily accurate. You're just clueless.
