States That Raised Minimum Wage See No Slow-Down In Job Growth

r1348 Re:Local testing works? (778 comments)

So basically, the wealthy will exploit the poor if not forced otherwise? If anything, that seems more like a law enforcement issue to me.

A Skeptical View of Israel's Iron Dome Rocket Defense System

r1348 Re:Subject bait (379 comments)

Highly debatable, actually Palestinian Arabs are descendants of Levantine Semites as much as Jews, so you wouldn't say that yours is the only civilization still around.

US Arrests Son of Russian MP In Maldives For Hacking

r1348 Re:Hm... (176 comments)

I'm asking this out of personal interest, I'm European too, and I would like my children to study in a school that would allow them to place well-known island groups in the right ocean.

Malvinas and Maldives are different islands, and very, very far apart. Where did you study?

This made it on /. too late, local media here is already spinning it as "porn makes you stupid (and blind)".

Watch Dogs Released, DRM Troubles

r1348 Re:Don't understand the hype (123 comments)

Well, there are walkthroughs on youtube already if you want to get an idea. As far as the story line might sound sci-fi, the game in general is much closer to GTA5 than DeusEx. The latter actively encourages a stealth approach, while in Watch Dogs you'll find yourself in the middle of (unavoidable) shootings very often, but don't worry, your average hacker can apparently take a lot of bullets...
I was also having high expectations for this game, but so far a big let down. Not plausible enough to be a good DeusEx, not batshit crazy enough to be a good GTA5.

No, it's basically GTA5 with less crazy shit and more techno-babble.

U.S. Drone Attack Strategy Against Al-Qaeda May Be Wrong

r1348 Re:Correlation vs correlation (433 comments)

I did not say living under retrograde religious fanatics is great, I just say that having death raining from above, without trial, sentence, or discretion, might push toward extremism. And no, they don't pray for further American intervention.
I also proposed an alternative strategy in my first post: cut their fundings. Proselitism, weapons, training camps... that stuff costs, and someone ought to pay. This of course includes also when the payers are the U.S. and its allies (see the Lybian and Syrian "freedom fighters").

U.S. Drone Attack Strategy Against Al-Qaeda May Be Wrong

r1348 Re:Correlation vs correlation (433 comments)

You're not the only one, but you're wrong. The "collateral damage" is effectively supplying terrorist organizations with unlimited manpower.
Cut their fundings instead, this might also lead to some surprising discoveries...
