Syria: a Defining Moment For Chemical Weapons?

t1oracle Re: I never understood the principle. (454 comments)

There is no such thing as a micro nuke. The smallest nukes still have a yield measured in kilotons. The fall out from the blast is not discriminating it will children and soldiers the same. The is no precision with nukes.

The Amish Are Getting Fracked

t1oracle Re:lawsuit by proxy? (367 comments)

What they need are some non-Amish cousins. Keep your friends close, but keep the heathens closer because one day you might need them to go to court for you to file lawsuits...

Marriages Spawned From Online Dating As Satisfying As From Traditional Dating

t1oracle Re:re Online Dating is Out! (313 comments)

People have unhappy marriages because they stop doing the things for their spouse that they used to do when the relationship was new. They've gotten complacent, stopped doing the extra effort, and then they are surprised to find out that the love feelings just isn't as strong anymore.

I came to that understanding from reading this: http://www.5lovelanguages.com/

There is a lot of good stuff in there and I think if more people followed advice like that, fewer relationships would go south. Of course, you have to be willing and nothing will help you if you are selfish. Some people simply are too selfish for a long term relationship to work.

Google Security Expert Finds, Publicly Discloses Windows Kernel Bug

t1oracle Re:But not to give them a chance to correct it fir (404 comments)

I think I should start a website where I publish Windows exploits along with thorough step by step details on how they can be used to compromise a system.

I won't sell exploits, or kits, or use the word "tutorial," but I will collect ad revenue and giddy little chuckles in my Linux loving soul ;-)

Now to find a domain name for this 8-D

Better solution. Robot surgeons. We already have them, make them better and cheaper. That will fix more issues than just unwashed hands.

Creationist Bets $10k In Proposed Literal Interpretation of Genesis Debate

t1oracle Re:Easy... (1121 comments)

Trying to do good is inadequate. Matthew 22:36-40 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Love is far more complex than simply trying to be good, and loving everyone is one of the most important things any of us can do. The purpose of the Bible is not to tell you how to think, but rather to direct your thoughts to the truth you already know in your heart. You already know how to love because God has put that knowledge into all of our hearts. However, loving others is often times the hardest thing in the world to do. That is why we have things like the Bible to help us along.

I just wonder what the carbon footprint is of Congress. Just imagine how much CO2 you could eliminate by getting them to spew less hot air.

Tesla Motors Battles the New York Times

t1oracle Re:Fault Irrelevant: Shows Flaw (700 comments)

Nonesense. If driving like an idiot left the NY Times stranded than the simple solution is to not be an idiot. If the problem is the car's fault then it's a different matter entirely. Although even if that were the case it could still be a fixable issue.

It doesn't matter that you haven't seen uncle Mohammad in 20 years and didn't know he was al-Qaida, you shouldn't have had tea with him after cousin Hussein's funeral.

Does US Owe the World an Education At Its Expense?

t1oracle Re:We have the same... (689 comments)

That's my general experience with immigrants period. Whether they are from Mexico, India, China, Nigeria, Ethiopia, the West Indies. I may be partial since my parent's immigrated as did most of my college friends, but that's the trend that I see. The most productive Americans are the one's that want to be here so bad that they left everything and everyone they know behind to get here.
