Yeah H2 is where the Jesus/Aliens/Nazis and if you're lucky, (Modern)Modern Marvels will play. H2 is usually a premium service channel though so you gotta cough up the dough to get it. Not that it's worth it by any means.

The problem with cheating on your wife implies that you can be deceitful. In a position where he stands as pretty much the highest man on the pole, you wouldn't want him to deceive you.

That would actually imply that it's moving in a forward direction. Despite what you hear the only thing moving forward is debt. Mmh lots of tasty debt.

Ask Slashdot: What Would It Take For Developers To Start Their Own Union?

what2123 Re:Does *any* industry start a new union anymore? (761 comments)

I certainly agree with you and would fully place myself behind such efforts to modernize worker/employee/labor laws however the people that would actually benefit from this would be "group-thought" into believing its bad for them. This is why unions in most environments are thought of as old dinosaurs that have outstayed their time. They will do everything they can to keep themselves here while contributing very little to the overall cause of their missions. I know full well that unions have enabled the common-man to have better wages, safer workplaces and fair compensation but I also know how they have hindered many developments of future growth to the same businesses. Unions are no unlike the rest of the world. Environments, culture, people and places all change and eventually need to be looked at again with an open mind. As long as most people believe that the government or someone else will take care of them they will be glad to be thought-for by others. Since there is no easy way to show long term damage until it is typically catastrophically to late, this trend will likely remain.

How We'll Get To 54.5 Mpg By 2025

what2123 Lower the standard (717 comments)

We will get there by lowering the expectation. We expect that a Gallon will be equal to the set volume that it is currently at but in 13 years, a Gallon will represent nearly 2.5X the amount that it does today. This is still logically correct when discussing MPG's and there isn't a thing you can do about it. Now get off my math.

Near-universal Mexican Healthcare Coverage Results From Science-informed Changes

what2123 Re:Like everywhere else it's been tried... (732 comments)

Keep adding a million migrants or so each year that scrape bottom barrel to live but use the same exact healthcare system. What little money they "save" usually goes back to their home country for their even poorer families. The problem is compound in America as we want to help others out but many of those people can't come close to helping themselves out. They ignore the rules that we have to protect our nation from these sort of issues but we also have rules that say, "You're here, let us help you." It's good humanitarianly speaking but you can't have the huge disparity in what is being paid and how much they are paying into. Canada is very stable when it comes to this and the disparity between the rich and poor is much smaller. Canada will most like remain good in most aspects as they don't seem to have any real change in population growth. The U.S simply cannot handle the type influx it has been seeing over the past 15-20 years.

Near-universal Mexican Healthcare Coverage Results From Science-informed Changes

what2123 Re:Like everywhere else it's been tried... (732 comments)

You generalize Americans as though we don't see the problem ourselves. We damn well know what a lot of the problems are, we just aren't allowed to talk about them. Talking about *important* matters only makes those that are dumb-voted in the office angry. When they get angry, they start to make laws that are only in place to make feel like they have accomplished something. It is 100% rubbish, all around, left or right.

Who Cares If Samsung Copied Apple?

what2123 Re:The Chinese... (544 comments)

We (The United States) offer them the ability to keep their land and people under peace and not the premise of war. We (The United States) have the military strength to undermine another sovereign state's ability to maintain control of factories and production of said goods. This is what we offer to them and will do so until we cannot do so.

Judge: Cops Can Impersonate Owner Of Seized Cell Phones

what2123 Hit me (213 comments)

I don't know much about entrapment but from what I *think* I know about it, I would say this sound entirely like that. Even if the "friend" came asking for the drugs, isn't this still a type of entrapment? Please kick me if I'm completely off on this.

The DHS's Latest Investment: Terahertz Laser Scanners

what2123 Re:Sounds good. (169 comments)

Glad someone was thinking the same thing. I shoot guns, and play with model rockets quite a bit (don't tell the DHS though). If it has the ability to detect at the level they are stating, then there will be many false positives. How will they know what the "zero" is on the scale?
