Google Not Reciprocating On IFrame Usage?

rivetgeek Re:DRM for webpages (115 comments)

Any person who modded this up needs a refresher in basic application security. The ability to iframe in a page allows for attacks like clickjacking.

Fermilab Scientists Discover New Particle

rivetgeek Re:Really new? (151 comments)

I'd love to hear of a form of matter that holds no mass. Having mass is basically the definition of matter.

Fermilab Scientists Discover New Particle

rivetgeek Re:Really new? (151 comments)

whomever is modding this down doesn't understand basic physics. This is correct. Matter can certainly become "not matter" E=MC^2

If you play a slot machine and the machine has a software glitch that tells you that you won, you don't get the money.

Green Card Lottery Judgment Favors Mathematical Randomness

rivetgeek Makes sense (210 comments)

As much as it must suck for those that wont he first time around, this is obviously the only fair choice. A random choice that is limited to a particular subset is NOT random for the entire set. Only those in the subset would have a non-zero chance.

Is Science Just a Matter of Faith?

rivetgeek wrong (1486 comments)

It has nothing to do with faith. Even the dullest of retards can grasp science concepts at a basic level. Any idiot can understand that Gravity is real; he doesn't need to know the formula to determine gravitational acceleration of a near-earth body or the cosmological equations regarding gravity wells to understand that if he falls off a roof, something will likely hurt. This same concept exists all the way up through any form of testable science. For an explanation as to why it is so hard to explain simple intuitive subjects, I will let a far greater man than I take over: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MO0r930Sn_8

AIDS Vaccine Is Partially Successful

rivetgeek Re:No hurry (317 comments)

You know very little about gay men, obviously. The vast majority do NOT engage in anal sex.

AIDS Vaccine Is Partially Successful

rivetgeek Re:No hurry (317 comments)

It is predominant among homosexuals but that is more likely cultural than biological. Many gay men participate in far more casual and unprotected anal sex or other high risk practices. It's not becase it's two men though, it's because those two men happen to be having high risk sex. If heteros were doing the exact same acts with the same frequency, you'd see a similar infection rate.
