Some people are Indians, Some people are Chiefs. I tried my hand at being a Chief, But I came to the realization that not only did I enjoy being an Indian, I'm a damm good Indian! (And there is nothing wrong with that)

Could Testing Block Psychopaths From Senior Management?

titanium93 Re:Just another way to bash someone's success (422 comments)

Just come up with a 'reasonable accomodation' that will allow a sociopath to exercise a position of power and discretion without dangerous fuckups, and we'll talk...

I did not know the UK had so many Zebras that they needed their own crossings. Is it really OK for humans to share them with the zebras? One would think the zebras would be more dangerous than the drivers.

titanium93 (839011) writes "Police say a pirate radio station was broadcasting Caribbean music from an antenna placed on top of the eight-story Regents Bank building in Hollywood FL. For months, dozens of people could not use their keyless entry systems to unlock or start their cars when parked in the banks vicinity.

Earthquake another Higgs Warning?

titanium93 titanium93 writes  |  more than 4 years ago

titanium93 (839011) writes "An earthquake in northern Illinois this morning was centered near the Tevatron at Fermilab. According to Fermilab Today: "Tilt meters strapped to Fermilab's magnets recorded the vibrations at the laboratory. The earthquake shook the magnets and caused the beam to strike a collimater, losing its store." Could this be another warning from the 'Time-Traveling Higgs'?"
