Are Booth Babes Going Away? (Video)

sepiroth Soap (334 comments)

The booth babes aren't going anywhere only the nerds have discovered soap. I'd rather speak to a guy who knows what he's talking about only if he didn't smell. I don't mean Italian but just taking a shower more often works -- that's what the marketing have found out.

Why It's So Hard To Predict How Caffeine Will Affect Your Body

sepiroth Re:Caffeine is a drug.. (212 comments)

But it does improve brain performance in a certain way [wikipedia]. It does not last though and the after effect can have an opposite effect.

Homeland Security Mining Social Media For Signs of Bio Attacks

sepiroth Re:Communism (96 comments)

Don't be mistaken it will stay with the USA. Other countries will follow happily.
Right I am complaining about just that. It is so, anything can be viewed as threat. And surely it begins with weapons of mass destruction. It end with anything you say or do could be used against you. Should I feel guilty for something I say? Do I have to think twice before I say something on social media? I should feel the same as in totalitarianism (thanks AC).

sepiroth Communism (96 comments)

Congratulations. I thought twice before saying anything outloud which could be overheard by authorities during the communism era. I was born in communism and I'm going to die in communism. Thank you. (I know it's not technically communism but you know)

Is There Still a Ray of Hope On Climate Change?

sepiroth Re:Natural gas is not clean energy (462 comments)

Yes, you have to burn it to extract energy from it. Which means CO2 and water (at least) will be emitted, like for burning any other organic substance. That is so anti green one can only imagine.

You're Driving All Wrong, Says NHTSA

sepiroth 9:15 is tiring (756 comments)

One, try holding your arms in this position for two hours or more. And no, the wheel is not shaped for that I've tried.

Two, better steering capability means you have to keey your hands steady more. Which is quite tiring with today's power steering.

Please fix the airbags instead or give me the old wheels.

French President Proposes Jail For Terrorist Website Visitors

sepiroth Re:What's the definition of an extremist? (402 comments)

Maybe I could agree with you in reading about bomb making. What if the site only presents ideas which are perceived extreme by some, like the government? What if the line is actually very thin? Who is to say what is extreme? That was my point. We can establish what is child pornography and what is not but who's to say what is terror and extreme? Even wikipedia says it depends...

For example, should be put in jail everyone who has seen the film Saw? (I did not and am not interested by the way).

Mozilla Contemplating Five Week Release Cycle

sepiroth Firefox is losing users? (495 comments)

Don't get me wrong, the chart from the description clearly shows IE is losing to Chrome -- unless I'm blind. Firefox has been losing but it's not that dramatic.

Polynomial Time Code For 3-SAT Released, P==NP

sepiroth Re:What, exactly, is 3-SAT? (700 comments)

From the practical point of view, NP != P would imply that certain problems cannot be solved by a clever (= fast) algorithm. You would just have to go through all the options to be sure you have found the best solution. For example, to be able to tell what is the most efficient way to visit all the cities along your trip, you would have to try all combinations: from A to B to C, from A to C to B, etc. and evaluate total length of the journey each time.

  • wondering how this could have ever worked
  • forgetting to save the file and wondering why it does not work

What Is the Oldest Code Written Still Running?

sepiroth Re:The oldest code in existence: (903 comments)

In addition, everyone's mitochondria with their own DNA (mitochondrial DNA, mtDNA) is separate from the rest of cellular DNA and does not change with conception; you inherit mitochondria and thus mtDNA from your mother (wikipedia). You can basically say mtDNA is as old as the human race itself.
