top Lockheed Claims Breakthrough On Fusion Energy Project
Well, I'm not sure this article is even talking about fusion or fission. The last paragraph of the article is just wrong where the author says that submarines and aircraft carriers carry large fusion reactors. They of course do not. They carry
fission reactors. So the author confused fission and fusion once why not twice?

What un-American??? Seems like he took a leaf out of Benjamin Franklin's book. When Mr. Franklin discovered a more efficient wood burning stove he didn't patent it for the purpose of making sure it would be widely accepted. His design is still being used.
top Russia Prepares For Internet War Over Malaysian Jet
It seems to me that the US and Russian leaders are just drumming up public support for an all out war. First it was Syria, then Crimea, and now this plane get shot down. I wouldn't be at all surprised if our dear POTUS and Putin are working closely together to escalate the situation and are just laughing at all the pawns jumping onto the national bandwagon.
I also wouldn't be surprised if the CIA really shot the jet down, or were somehow involved with both sides.
Reading the news from the US, Ukrainian, Russia, BBC, Israel, and China I can't help but think there is something deeper going on. They all are saying about the same thing, though assigning blame according to their own national propaganda.
If public opinion becomes strong enough and national hate is built to sufficient levels in both countries war is going to happen, and millions will die.
Please people don't get sucked into to the nationalist propaganda!

Its just a typo in the article. Really it's just an NSA project to track you and since your tinfoil hats aren't carbon there's nothing you can do to hide. Except maybe crawling in a pile of pencils.

top Stay Home When You're Sick!
I work from home, and when I'm sick (unless I'm really sick) I work, not because I feel like I have to, but because I could be sitting on the couch feeling sorry for myself and wiping my nose, or sit in front of my computer with something to concentrate on and distract myself from my own discomfort.
