EU Commissioner Renews Call for Serious Fines in Data Privacy Laws

oreiasecaman Re:Hypocrites (162 comments)

Oh, I'm sorry, do you think the NCA, Mossad, Al-amn al-Watani, Ministry Of Intelligence and Security, State Security Department, etc., don't spy on their own citizens too?

The NSA got caught. That's the distinction here. Not what they're doing. Everyone else is doing the same damn thing, they just didn't leave a cheeky 20-something unattended in the server room of their security archives.

New Class of "Hypervelocity Stars" Discovered Escaping the Galaxy

oreiasecaman Re:Maybe they're not stars.... (150 comments)

Why not carry around with you a significant power source, that will last potentially billions of years? Sure there could be better or faster ways, but I'd think the star itself would be a precious asset while going out of galaxy!

Are New Technologies Undermining the Laws of War?

oreiasecaman Re:Also, (317 comments)

Yes but this whole thread is about the US invading countries, and if war is justifiable. So, I thought it would add to the discussion citing that Afghanistan has significant resources on their land just sitting there, unexploited.

Not only oil has value, you know

"It is believed that among other things the country holds $3 trillion in untapped mineral deposits.[1] In December 2013, President Karzai claimed the mineral deposits are actually worth $30 trillion."

Memo To Parents and Society: Teen Social Media "Addiction" Is Your Fault

oreiasecaman Re:My Anecdote Does Not Support Assertion (271 comments)

Not all of them. I still have childhood friends around, and I'm no youngster anymore (32 years right now). Of course, we don't hang out all the time as during our childhood time, but we regularly meet, knock a few at the bar...
And I've made good friendships as an adult too, not as deep as the childhood ones, but very good friendships nevertheless. Maybe you just were unlucky, because I doubt I'm the only one around here like that.

Member of President Obama's NSA Panel Recommends Increased Data Collection

oreiasecaman Re:WTF?! (349 comments)

I wouldn't go so far as to call what's done here "market socialism", Brazil is very, very different from China. We are capitalists too -- means of production are not in gov't hands but in private hands instead. And it's true that our gov't is levying far more than their fair share in taxes, for what is being provided in exchange... I remember reading about Belíndia (sorry but apparently there's no English version!). Belíndia was a local economist's parody of what Brazil was (and mostly still is), with taxes and laws from Belgium and standards of living of India. The worst issue is, we end paying up for things we should have for free, for those things are poorly provided by government... public hospitals suck, so we must pay up private hospitals. Public schools sucks, so we must pay for private schools for our kids. Streets and roads are terrible, so gov't hand them over to corporations who charge tolls...
But as I said those things are slowly improving for some time now, IMO. :)
