Judge Unseals 500+ Stingray Records

someone1234 Re:Consent of the Governed (165 comments)

The US doesn't invade AND occupy its neighbors. They go farther, and don't stay there for decades. Anyone rich enough (in the US) can get a fair trial. In Russia, you have to be a friend of Putin.
So, there are subtle differences.

"Barbie: I Can Be a Computer Engineer" Pulled From Amazon

someone1234 Re:From Experience (561 comments)

The problem is, she isn't alive. There ARE female programmers this age too. But they are damn rare.
By the way, there is nothing wrong with designers, writers, etc. They do a lot of important work a game programmer wouldn't be able to do.

Sweden Considers Adding "Sexism" Ratings To Video Games

someone1234 Re:Horribly sexist ! (642 comments)

Which is more degrading, a woman with no boobs, or a woman with noticeable boobs? Considering how much women spend on breast enlargement, I would think a woman with considerable boobs is the desirable for them.

Incapacitating Chemical Agents: Coming Soon To Local Law Enforcement?

someone1234 Re:die by taser or gas? (152 comments)

Yay, thanks for explaining for me. This is exactly what i meant. When there are 500 people held by a largeish number of hostage takers, it is not normal crime but terrorism. Sharpshooters or negotiations won't help. Obviously, i didn't meant to gas a bank building during a botched bankrobbery, but meant obvious terrorist acts, like the russian case.
In such cases, saving 400 out of 500 is actually a victory.

Detritus From Cancer Cells May Infect Healthy Cells

You don't have to go that far and outside of biology for an analogy. It is simply like a virus.

Incapacitating Chemical Agents: Coming Soon To Local Law Enforcement?

someone1234 die by taser or gas? (152 comments)

The result is a stopped heart. So what's the difference?

Also, if you can save 400 of 500 in a hostage situation and catch all the 10+ terrorists. Go for it. The terrorists would kill them anyway and if they escape, they can continue their business.

$10 Bet Brings Researchers Closer to Industrial Scale Graphene Production

someone1234 Re:what ? (74 comments)

From the article:

"Kovtyukhova tried leaving out various agents and found that the oxidizing agent wasn't necessary for the reaction to take place." when using her mixture of acids (without the oxidizing agent) on boron nitride (a compound with a structure similar to graphite).

Then she balked at trying the same mixture on graphite based on "the extensive literature saying that the oxidizing agent was required". Why? Why she tried to remove that frigging agent in the first place then?

I mean: She knew that her technique without the oxidizing agent works on a material similar to graphite. She knew that the oxidizing agent is bad for graphite. Then why insisting on it???

White House Approves Sonic Cannons For Atlantic Energy Exploration

Scientists don't know what will happen to a dolphin getting in the way?
Well, either they explode, or just get their brain squashed. It could be they just become permanently deaf or just scared shitless and swim to the shore to die there.
Either case: they die, who cares which way?
