Practical Jetpack Available "Soon"

strelitsa I Read TFA ... And Lawled (237 comments)

In June 1997, seven weeks after the birth of his second child, Mr. Martin figured his prototype was now powerful enough to lift its first flier, so long as that person weighed less than 130 pounds. So he turned to his wife. "I said, 'Hey, Vanessa, what are you doing tonight?"

Mrs. Martin agreed to be her husband's levitating guinea pig.

...

She said she felt, in a way, that she had conquered it - "the taming of it, that's so exciting." It was, she said, "probably the best experience of my life."

Doesn't say a lot about being married to Mr. Martin or Mr. Martin's prowess in the sack, does it?

ACLU Files Lawsuit Challenging FISA

strelitsa Re:us phone = us citizen? (542 comments)

I'll see your cute truism and raise you a boiled frog allegory. Nobody is disputing the wisdom of conducting surveillance on Joe Terrorist in BFE. Its when the surveillance is somehow also conducted on Peter "The Citizen" Pothead and Ulysses "The Citizen" Unsafedriver without bothering with little nitpicky things like warrants and Constitutional rights that sticks in one's craw.

Hackers Booted From Black Hat For Hacking

strelitsa strelitsa writes  |  more than 5 years ago

strelitsa (724743) writes "Its AP, so you'll just have to get over the nonstandard use of the term "hacker".

With thousands of hackers milling around the Black Hat convention here, and widespread snooping on the public Wi-Fi network, one place was supposed to be off limits: the press room.

But in a case of reporters spying on other reporters, three journalists working for the French publication Global Security Magazine were booted Thursday from the hackers' conference after they were allegedly caught hacking into the private computer network set up for the media.
