Snowden to Critics: Questioning Putin Has Opened Conversation About Surveillance

oodaloop Re:Spy Talk (168 comments)

He had a birthday party at the Russian embassy in an attempt to mask his involvement with Russia? Then filed for assylum, waited on approval, finally moved to Russia, and engaged Putin on TV, all in a clever attempt to cover up for the fact that he was a Russian spy/plant all along? That is stretching the bounds of credulity.

Snowden to Critics: Questioning Putin Has Opened Conversation About Surveillance

oodaloop Re:Spy Talk (168 comments)

So Snowden was actually a Russian spy all along? Is that why he went to Hong Kong first, then applied and waited for assylum in Russia? Sorry, that doesn't make any fucking sense. (IAA Intelligence Analyst)

Snowden to Critics: Questioning Putin Has Opened Conversation About Surveillance

oodaloop Re:Wrong Question (168 comments)

Snowden, a former NSA sysadmin, isn't an expert on any of those subjects, and probably isn't terribly interested in them either.

Tor Blacklisting Exit Nodes Vulnerable To Heartbleed

oodaloop Re:So much for Net Neutrality. (56 comments)

Of course. Let us not forget NSA lying to congress, engaging in corporate espionage, subverting crypto standards, spying on Senators, spying on foreign leaders, and monitoring and managing online discussions on technology websites like Slashdot. But I don't see how any of that would help us track conventional military units overseas.

Tor Blacklisting Exit Nodes Vulnerable To Heartbleed

oodaloop Re:So much for Net Neutrality. (56 comments)

Russia has just admitted that it really did move members of its armed forces into Crimea prior to the annexation. How do you think they managed that without people catching on?

Maybe old school subterfuge? Or are you arguing we need mass warrantless surveillance of American citizens in order to track Russain military units overseas?

Mathematicians Use Mossberg 500 Pump-Action Shotgun To Calculate Pi

oodaloop So handy (307 comments)

That's better than the part of pi I have memorized, 3.1415926. I had no idea I could waste valuable shotgun shells calculating pi to such precision.

ultimately strafing the vandals who sent them with gatling guns full of spent U238 bullets, cleaning up both our streets and the gene pool.

Brutally murdering people for graffiti aside, why would a gun be full of spent rounds?
