Funny, my electricity bills didn't start going up until my government started investing in windmills......

Renewables Are Now Scotland's Biggest Energy Source

pastafazou Re:It will never work (181 comments)

Scotland's money comes from the English tax payer.
That's because Scottish arms are too short to reach the bottoms of their deep trouser pockets. Money goes in, but can't ever be reached when needed.

Health Advisor: Ebola Still Spreading, Worst Outbreak We've Ever Seen

pastafazou Re:Idea (234 comments)

The USA is the largest consumer market in the world where per capita consumption is higher than any other country. Yet you're making the claim that there's a shortage of demand, and you're getting modded up as interesting? Wow.

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

pastafazou Re:Flip Argument (1088 comments)

He wasn't running, his hands weren't up. Did you not read the autopsy when it was released? No bullets in the back, therefore not running....bullet entered bicep, therefore hands not up.

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

pastafazou Re:Flip Argument (1088 comments)

And yet the autopsy revealed that the bullet that hit his arm entered from the bicep, and the rest of the bullet wounds indicate Brown was facing Wilson. So either he got hit once with his hands up and quickly spun around before the rest of the shots hit him, or his hands weren't actually up when that bullet hit his bicep.

Republicans Block Latest Attempt At Curbing NSA Power

pastafazou Re: So basically (441 comments)

FYI, because this bill failed, the NSA's authorization to bulk monitor phone calls warrantlessly is now set to expire next year, whereas this bill would have extended it with some minor limitations. Some Republicans who were in favor of the original bill voted against the final version because it didn't do enough, and they would prefer the expiration to take effect instead.

How To Mathematically Predict Lightning Strikes

pastafazou Re:Question about Climate Change (41 comments)

more lightning means more chance of forest fires. More forest fires means more CO2 produced. More CO2 produced means more greenhouse effect. More greenhouse effect means hotter temperatures. Hotter temperatures mean more moisture in the atmosphere. More moisture in the atmosphere means more lightning. Repeat.

What Will It Take To Make Automated Vehicles Legal In the US?

pastafazou Re:What will it take? (320 comments)

Never mind the number of people made redundant and unemployed by automation. Taxi drivers, truck drivers, bus drivers, couriers, and probably a bunch more. Expect the lobbying fees to get into the billions before any politician decides it's time to act.

Ebola Does Not Require an "Ebola Czar," Nor Calling Up the National Guard

pastafazou unless you recently went to Africa (384 comments)

or you were a health care worker caring for Duncan. Or happened to live in the apartment complex where Duncan stayed. Or you happened to be on a flight from Texas to Ohio. Or on a flight from Ohio to Texas. Or one of those within 2 degrees of separation of any of these.

Positive Ebola Test In Second Texas Health Worker

pastafazou Re:Russians have a few drugs starting trails (463 comments)

Are these russian drugs Psilocybin based, or are they Lysergic acid dyethylamide based? If it's the first, the trails will be shorter, and the strength of other hallucinatory experiences won't be as intense.

End of an Era: After a 30 Year Run, IBM Drops Support For Lotus 1-2-3

pastafazou Re:And yet IBM soldiers on... (156 comments)

Their revenue has stayed the same, but their profits and profit margin have consistently increased. Revenue growth is meaningless without also looking at how that growth affected profits. Lots of growth with little gain is a bad trend.

Aral Sea Basin Almost Completely Dry

pastafazou Re:Stop blaming the Soviets (151 comments)

Why do you declare it a fuckup? They diverted the water, and now have farmland where before they had desert. That was their plan. If you're telling me that they wanted farmland in the desert as well as the Aral Sea to stay the same, then yes it was a fuckup. But I don't think that was the intention.

Gun Control: If it saves just one child....

pastafazou pastafazou writes  |  about 2 years ago

pastafazou (648001) writes "A boy in Washington, DC was being viciously mauled by three unleashed pit bulls when a neighbor came to his rescue. Running into his house to fetch his handgun, the neighbor opened fire on the dogs. A nearby police officer, responding to the sound of gunfire, arrived on the scene and assisted in shooting the dogs. The boy, saved by the actions of the gun-sporting neighbor, is recovering in hospital with severe wounds. The neighbor, meanwhile may be facing charges."
