Using Truth Serum To Confirm Insanity
Sorry I'm late responding. I'm actually NOT one of those guys. I absolutely believe that the US government has taken far too many liberties in restricting constitutional protections, and I don't want to see the second amendment hamstrung any more than I want to be told what time of the day is acceptable for me to poop. I just thought AC's comment was overemotional.
IMHO, responding to "you're crazy if you're a member of group X" with, "I'm not crazy, and if you call me crazy again I may do something stereotypically associated with group X" just ain't the way to maintain credibility.
Twitter Sued For $50M For Refusing To Identify Anti-Semitic Users
And (unless you use a proxy for everything) at least a small handful of IP addresses, which would probably trace back to you if someone really cared enough to really go looking.
Using Truth Serum To Confirm Insanity
Yeah, that's it! Threaten him with being shot! That'll be SURE to demonstrate that you're a rational, level-headed person!

Shouldn't you be in school?
Iran Says It Sent Monkey Into Space and Back
Keeping a really large single stage sugar/fertilizer rocket from blowing up on the launch pad and taking out your monkey is a lot tougher than it sounds.
Male Scientists More Prone To Misconduct
Exactly. Particularly at the "upper echelons of the profession." It's high enough to provoke articles about how it's difficult for women to advance into those positions.
HP Software Update Cancels Food Stamps
My best guess, based on what's in the article: HP initially developed the system, probably while administering the State's IT systems. Later, the state changed vendors from HP to Xerox, and Xerox took over managing the HP-designed solution. Eventually the solution broke, or Xerox wanted to move it to a newer system, couldn't figure out how to make it work, called on HP to get assistance with the transition, likely got a green tech who recommended something like updating from a 10-year-old version of Java, and this then caused the system to go down, leaving the mess thoroughly all over Xerox's hands.
Guaranteed: if Xerox fixed it, it was Xerox's screw up, and certainly their responsibility. TFA doesn't specify anything about patching, so I'm thinking that this whole monster is likely a disparate collection of antiquated software that's gotten gradually more crotchety and difficult to maintain over the years, and is probably long overdue to be rebuilt from scratch.
Campaign To Remove Paper From Offices
And there's the real reason that most office environments will never successfully go paperless: if they did, where would employees steal paper for their home printers from?
MESSENGER Probe Finds Strong Evidence of Ice On Mercury
So, sort of, "shoot first, ask questions later?"
I can't imagine what could possibly go wrong with this as a scientific approach.
Ask Slashdot: Will You Shop Local Like President Obama, Or Online?
I'm betting your company doesn't send people to jail for not spending their money there.

Nokia Exec: Young People Fed Up With iPhone and Android
He had nothing to say and nothing to contribute
Oh, what sweet irony.
Brain Imaging Reveals the Movies In Our Mind
Easy, there. While this might be okay on a voluntary basis to prove innocence, I'd guess that the right to protection against self-incrimination in the fifth amendment would probably prohibit this from being used to prove guilt or suspend the need for trials.

IPhone 4 Survives 1,000 Foot Fall From Plane
Do combat fighter pilots often perform maneuvers with the canopy open? Was it really exceptionally warm, on that particular day, and he was just out for a spin, chatting with his girlfriend on his iPhone, with his helmet and mask pulled off and the wind rushing through his hair?
I'm sorry, I guess I'm just having a difficult time reconciling any part of this story with my "Top Gun"-perspective of fighter aircraft.

Time Warner Cable Launches iPad App With Live TV
Let me help you fill in the blanks, there:
8. Guy with hot tub next to his pool and his waterfall (who'd also like you to know that he's not a creepy apartment-dewller) walks into the kitchen, and unwraps a new iPhone from the case of them that he's got stashed beneath the sink.
Makes you wonder how people managed to survive before the internet, when they had to go brag about their expensive crap around the water cooler, and only to people who knew them well enough to envy them. We've come such a long way.
TI Plans Minority Report UI Using ARM SoC + Projector
Hands off my chair; when I'm ready to move around, I'll get up and move around.
Outside of it just being a novel interface, I honestly can't see any application where this type of UI is more practical or useful than what presently exists, but I can see several where it'll make general computing a lot more difficult. Just because the mouse has been around with us for a while doesn't mean that any conceivable alternative to it is an improvement. Think I'm going to have to pass on this, and hold out for the neural interface.
