The Effect of Internal Bacteria On the Human Body

solweil Re:Anthropomorphic bacteria (227 comments)

Welp, that's my lesson on not responding to ACs, I guess. Right after this one, of course. If you can't understand the basic concept of antibiotics in chemtrails, then good day to you, sir.

The Effect of Internal Bacteria On the Human Body

solweil Re:Anthropomorphic bacteria (227 comments)

Nope, it was the usual advances that got us up to about 100. Obviously antibiotics are recent and they are what has been keeping the life extension singularity from happening.

The Effect of Internal Bacteria On the Human Body

solweil Re:Anthropomorphic bacteria (227 comments)

If true, would antibiotics really necessarily kill us routinely, or would the effect maybe be more subtle, like limiting us to around a hundred years?

SEC Proposes Wall Street Transparency Via Python

solweil Re:hmm (278 comments)

Is a functional programming language any more inherently reliable since you are trusting the compiler anyways? Does it effectively matter if the code can be "provably without side-effects" if you are trusting the implementation via a black box on a different level? Honest question from a noob.

Then perhaps some sort of failsafe involving IP over Avian Carriers is in order.

Where To Start In DIY Electronics?

solweil 555 timer projects and the Arduino (301 comments)

Do basic 555 timer projects to learn how to make LEDs flash, tones, bounceless switches, etc. Also, get an Arduino. It takes very little time and not so many parts to get from Cool Idea to Thing that Works.

US Military Shuts Down CIA's Terrorist Honey Pot

solweil Re:There's military intelligence for you (213 comments)

Isn't the idea to identify and track them? It doesn't matter that they visit other jihadi sites as long as they also visit the honeypot site.

Inside the AP's Plan To Security-Wrap Its News Content

solweil something like scribd? (138 comments)

It's going to be at least as annoying as scribd, isn't it? Some sort of annoying flash thing that keeps people from copying text? Maybe the efforts of those captcha hackers can be redirected.

solweil inaccurately called wireless? (348 comments)

How is it inaccurate to call it "wireless" if, in fact, no wires are used to transmit signals? What in the world do you propose?

Rep. Jane Harman Focus In Yet Another Warrantless Wiretap Scandal

solweil Re:A Setback for Israeli-Palestinian Peace Efforts (312 comments)

It's possible that Rep. Harman suspected she was speaking to a robot and tried to do what worked so often in ST:TOS: speaking aloud a contradiction to make the robot's head explode.
