3D Maps Reveal a Lead-Laced Ocean

zaroastra Beware of history repeating!!! (266 comments)

Unnecessary worldwide poisoning with lead through car gasoline (known to be neurotoxic for hundreths of years) still happens today in some parts of the world.
Read http://www.todayifoundout.com/... to see how we really don't deserve the name gaven to our species...

Nowadays, jet fuel, maybe even on purpose for solar management geo engineering (even unilateral as per CFR recomendations), is leaking all kinds of bizarre particulates all over the world.

There is a heated discussion on whether what we now see almost on a daily basis are contrails or chemtrails. Who cares! Just don't poison us!
What matters is that this is relatively new worldwide phenomenon ( less than a decade), and tests have proven that air quality is degrading everywhere.
Why not being more proactive, and make sure that whatever they add to the jet formulas is safe?
Look up, next time you see a nice sun shiny day turn to a misty, smoggy, gray day from air traffic, remember it took almost a century to ban lean in car gasoline. Do you feel safe?

Software Patent Reform Stalls Thanks To IBM and Microsoft Lobbying

zaroastra You need to wake up and do something about it! (239 comments)

Most people on this forum are IT related, and I do not need to explain how software patents in particular hinder the ability to innovate in the field.
Only the US has terror histories regarding patent trolls and patent dicksizing contests between software companies, which in no way help you be better, faster, and, I would even say more profitable (Lawyers being the only ones profiting out of this)
There is no room for software start ups because of this. Everything that could be patented already is (and a lot that shouldn't is too).
Here, in software patent free world, it's so much better. Whatever you can think of you can do it, and even if you cannot find a solution, you can google for it, code it, and that's it. No lawyers or burocracies needed.
This is a clear situation of the big fish creating rules to eat the small fish. Is that the world you want to live in?

(the same could be applied to the rest of patents, and even things outside patents like equality and justice, but I will stay out of it to keep on topic)

Should the U.S. bomb Syria?

zaroastra MSM MANIPULATION (659 comments)

Soundtrack to this comment:
"this is manipulation
will put your soul in danger "
Blasted Mechanism: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXtuS4ouiiA [youtube.com]

Main stream media was singled out with the coverage of the event.
Previous attack with CW atributed by UN to the rebels are ignored.
Several intelligence agencys have "undeniable evidence" that Assad was dumb enough to have a chemical attack just when the UN CW inspection team was arriving. Yet, none provides it. No coments about that either.
The reason for intervention (CW usage by Assad) is contested by at least a dozen direct accounts, yet no reports on main stream media.
You are being manipulated.
Remember the saying:
"fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice..." how many times do you need to be fooled before waking up?

UK To Use "Risk-Profiling Software" To Screen All Airline Passengers and Cargo

>The terrorists won on 9/11.
Someone won 9/11, because a lot has changed...
I guess your afirmation is true for a certain definition of terrorists, general population on the other hand, lost a lot, civil liberties being just one of them.

zaroastra frack you - biodiesel is wrong (591 comments)

bio diesel industry is wrong, the benefits you get are obscured by:
- food scarcity
- goverment bonuses to big farmer and big evil (insert monsanto/whatever here)
- patent trolls
- CO positive, because mass farming is OIL intensive industry
- lowest return on the barrel ever
- ecological destruction of habitats
etc etc etc... just go read about it!

Saudi Arabia Implements Electronic Tracking System For Women

zaroastra Shameful!! (591 comments)

That happening on the XXI century, having such a clear violation of human rights (I could quote you on those, but if I recall correctly is the most translated text ever, so RTF UDHR http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/index.shtml ), is, to say the least, shameful!
Not having official complaints from every other nation proves the state of uncarefulness for your neighbours our societies reached.

Beware! It will happen to you next! (And you have been warned for several years now BTW)

insert mandatory quote here:

and there was no one left to speak for me." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_they_came...

Scientists Say People Aren't Smart Enough For Democracy To Flourish

zaroastra Re:"Scientists Say" (1276 comments)

that doesnt mean that from time to time we couldnt try others no?
i'd like an online idyllic forum, where everyone would reach consensus as to what the best policies for 5 10 20 50 100 1000 years would be, and dynamic enough so it could track and adapt to better solutions to the planning without getting tied to stupid political games and worst.

Hmmm not this one...i'll have to look somewhere else then ;)

Scientists Say People Aren't Smart Enough For Democracy To Flourish

zaroastra Re:Missing the point about Democracy (1276 comments)

gratz!
One of the best comments in a while, which captures the essence of the problem.
of all places, here is where someone should say that the answer is obvious, as it relays on computers and software. Because we obviously cannot be counted upon to have a good government without proper supervision.
"democratically" we cannot see further than a hand full of years. there is no sense of continuity nor public good, because every politician that gets elected needs to warrant the reelection in 4 years, and sometimes that is hard, and sometimes the ones in power (and not necessarily elected) will "get for them" (as in steal) what they can while it lasts, thus damaging the greater good at the expense of their own selves.
but that is to be expected, as such is the primal gene/cortex/whatever that makes man able to think that himself is more worthfull than the others, and while some may resist, without proper supervision it would all
only with true transparency would a "good" government work, and that, as we know, is not the case of any government, as they all keep their secrets and intrigues.

EU Central Court Could Validate Software Patents

zaroastra Re:Pathetic (77 comments)

Never mind voting, last time the european parlament (with people elected through voting) said no to software patents, the prime ministers tried to overturn the move and aprove a higher yes to patents, which, if I recall correctly, was stopped only because of the polac prime minister, to which all in EU should thank.
Voting, not voting, all bollocks and all the same.

Formerly Classified Global Warming Spy Photos Released

zaroastra Re:How long has this been going on? (791 comments)

off topic, ianam, but its easy to prove that 0.9(9) = 1

0.9(9) = 3 x 0.3(3)
1/3 = 0.3(3)
3 x 1/3 = 1 = 0.9(9)

where can you find a mathematician which swears this cant be ?

Pirate Bay Court Loss Won't Stop the Flow of Files

zaroastra Re:Bitter protest against copyrights (358 comments)

Hi,
  You're right on track here, to support you I quote you article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

Article 19.

        * Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.

So, anything less of the above, are rights that have been removed from you by lobbys and governments.
