the_Bionic_lemming Re:How much more of a moron can you prove yourself (266 comments)

canning foods yes, but canning itself has been around for quite a lot longer. I'll also note that you are now flailing and trying to win on semantics.

What was pastuers motivation to can food?

And now that you realize the method I described could work, why are you still digging?

the_Bionic_lemming Oh, I see where you are failing (266 comments)

You still are talking about lids.

If you cook the food to where it's free of microbes, then use a Layer of bees wax to cover it, as long as nothing disturbs the bees wax, the food will be preserved.

You do know that bees wax does not rot right? You do know that bees wax from egyptian tombs proves it right? You are assuming that combining modern canning methods with a bees wax lid (not a metal lid) is impossible.

Why don't you actually try to preserve some tomatoes for a year and come back and revisit your own posts.

And that is why you continue to flail.

the_Bionic_lemming Re:You're completely wrong. (266 comments)

And just when I thought you hit rock bottom, you grab a pickax and start digging.

So here it is, me and you, you have no lids left - it's years after the apocalypse. You can't preserve any food for the winter.

You laugh at me while I continue to use old canning techniques, Predicting that I will die.

Midway thru winter, I'm spooning preserved apples in my mouth, while you, starving to death still laughs at me because I'm tempting death.

When winter ends, I come over to your house and see that you have propped yourself up against the wall - then died after leaving me a sarcastic and withering letter about how much smarter you are because you know that there's no way on God's green earth that anyone could ever survive like their ancestors did.

Boy, your fancy high fallutin technology and pop science really showed me eh?

And if you are right? We're both dead anyway ;) So in no,way, shape or form can you be correct in this conversation.

the_Bionic_lemming Re:What am I wrong about? (266 comments)

I'll try not to typo -

How much of an industrial civilization is needed to create glass jars, or melt beeswax? Because you can preserve food with those basics.

That's why your statement is mind numbingly clueless.

Help a Journalist With An NFC Chip Implant Violate His Own Privacy and Security

the_Bionic_lemming Re:can chip implants cause cancer? (137 comments)

What does a RFID chip do, and why would you be stupid enough to mention glass?

Does Glass stop the rf in rfid? If it did - then why would there be an implant in the first place?

Seriously? Can't people even think before they knee-jerk on reading wiki?

Help a Journalist With An NFC Chip Implant Violate His Own Privacy and Security

the_Bionic_lemming can chip implants cause cancer? (137 comments)

There's a couple schools of thought about chipping pets - one is the cancer risk is minimal, the other is that it isn't minimal.

So I'll say that a good use of his chip will be to see if he gets cancer.

Largest Sunspot In a Quarter Century Spews Flares

the_Bionic_lemming Good to see it (46 comments)

I'm glad we didn't enter into a maunder minimum like folks were nervous about.

Having no summer to grow food worldwide would be pretty devastating for many people.

the_Bionic_lemming Re:Canning != Cans (266 comments)

I have over 100 mason jars stored in the attic - and someone else mentioned beeswax for the lids.

Been canning foods at home for over 20 years - I routinely feel sorry for people who've only had tomatoes out of a can.

I have more available too - it's the advantage you get when you grow up in a poor immigrant family and learn not only where your food comes from, but the ways to insure growing it and preserving it.

All you naysayers to what I posted? I gave 10 lbs of Prague Powder . Did you know what that was before looking it up?

I think if you can garden, know how to can foods, Understand how to preserve meat, have a good understanding of what a root cellar actually does, have knowledge on how to actually catch, skin and clean food - you'd find the preceding article quite amusing.

Think about it. We're worrying here on how to quickly pass on survival information to start from scratch while totally ignoring the fact that there is shit tons of ready made knives, metal to sharpen, museums full of ready to work stuff and more to keep from actually having to wait a hundred years to reboot.

Italian Supreme Court Bans the 'Microsoft Tax'

the_Bionic_lemming PC cost (350 comments)

For Microsoft to be truly competitive, a PC with a preloaded MS system where the MS OS is denied, should entitle the purchaser to a full refund of retail price from microsoft.

That way, people who hate 8.1 can migrate to win 7 at the expense of Microsoft.

That would also allow small site PC builders to compete with the crap factories of Dell and other large scale manufacturers by reducing it to a hardware and labor price point.

New Microsoft Garage Site Invites Public To Test a Wide Range of App Ideas

the_Bionic_lemming ex microsoft shill (72 comments)

Unless microsoft goes back to developing a better OS based off of win 2k or win xp - I'm more likely to tell MS to fuck off and just hope I can port all my games to Linux someday instead.

Vista Sucked - Win 7 slowed searches and locks up if you have a bad cd - win 8 was just a - well failure isn't anything but kind - so no, not interested in Microsoft wank stuff.

OS that works. That's what the focus should be. Unfortunately, Micrsoft jumped off the Star Trek movie Mantra after XP. Every other release sucked until after XP - then they all sucked.

Pentagon Reportedly Hushed Up Chemical Weapons Finds In Iraq

the_Bionic_lemming Re:You're an ACA troll (376 comments)

Yes, I live in Illinois, the bastion of right wingers that has the highest unemployment and job displacements in the nation.

And you conveniently ignore that all the people now covered under healthcare, were covered under healthcare before the obamanation healthcare act. The only difference now is the middle class lost and had have to shell out craptons of cash now.

Good search engines that do not censor?

the_Bionic_lemming the_Bionic_lemming writes  |  about 2 years ago

the_Bionic_lemming (446569) writes "A friend of mine asked me to help him find some cigars, and I told him to use google shopping to get the best prices. Much to my surprise, the search yielded 0 results.
I then looked around and found an article that talks about google also censoring guns from search results.

Since I haven't done much shopping online, are there any good non censoring web sites left that allow adults to shop and buy things they are legally entitled to buy?

So far all I have is these."

When an LLC fails

the_Bionic_lemming the_Bionic_lemming writes  |  more than 5 years ago

the_Bionic_lemming writes "About a Year ago my father started a LLC with two other partners. He asked me to help get him a web presence so I hosted with an online host and set up their website on the name of their new llc. I created the basics, modded some photo's for them, and then expanded it with custom contact pages and patchworked a decent site for them. I then searched for an easier URL for them to type in and found a catchy one that fit in well with what they are doing. They immediately switched to using this on their t-shirts, coffee mugs, contact cards — etc. Since it was family, I never billed for work as I was to be hired on when it grew to a sustainable level to justify adding a tech department and would receive a good bonus as well. The partners now want to dissolve the llc, kick my dad out, and reform the LLC.

Now, I never got paid for any of this, so my question is, do I still own my code, and more importantly, what are my rights since I want my dad to reform his own company under the URL I purchased and allowed him to use?"

Virgin Galactic Explosion

the_Bionic_lemming (446569) writes "An explosion at an airport home to Scaled Composites — the builder of the first private manned rocket to reach space — killed two people and left four seriously hurt Thursday, a Kern County Fire Department official says. It happened at the Mojave Air and Space Port during a test of a new rocket motor for SpaceShipTwo — a spaceship being built for Virgin Galactic, Richard Branson's space tourism company, a source said. The motor uses nitrous oxide, the source said."
