Re: Coal ash contains 13 times more Thorium Energy than Coal

A melt-down isn't a "reasonably operating nuclear facility". But actually, it should include a meltdown, just not a dispersive hydrogen explosion. Besides, meltdowns are usually caused by something going stupidly wrong (as in Chernobyl and TMI) or catastrophically wrong (such as Fukushima...

Re: The Libertarians Are Coming

Providing perverse incentives with recursive bad consequences should not be a function of government. And if government restricted itself like this in reality, would you still want to control what other people do in their bedroom? I'll be honest - I don't know anyone who particularly cares what som...

Re: Obama Care Will Trip Us Into Recession

Oddly, I'm reminded of the 'Hunger Games' series of novels. You have a Capitol City, where the rich reside and dictate to all outside it. You have the various Districts, where everyone else lives - and provides the materials and food (apparently gratis) for Capitol City to live on. Now we're getting...

Re: AGW Sausage Making

The thing about real science is that when it happens, it's a burst of beautiful creation, not trying to hide things all jumbled up in a sausage. I like that - it's clear and succinct. And when someone's screaming 'The science is settled!' while not showing their work, their data sets, or the black ...

Re: Is the idiot still here?

I think he got tired of failing in his quest to get evicted, thus proving how 'mean' the folks are here.

Gotta pity the masochist who's begging to be beaten, and nobody will oblige him.

Re: Palin: Government Controls Too Much Of Our Lives

The funny thing was that she was widely derided as being a know-nothing idiot, completely unsuited to the task of governing the country due to her only working her way up the Republican food chain in Alaska to the position of State Governor, and managed to get a lot of concessions out of the oil ind...

Ice Cap increase 29%, Reality laughs at Models.

A chilly Arctic summer has left 533,000 more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year – an increase of 29 per cent. The rebound from 2012’s record low comes six years after the BBC reported that global warming would leave the Arctic ice-free in summer by 2013. Read mor...

Re: Obama Care Will Trip Us Into Recession

And in 2014 and 2016 the talking points will be 'You've never had it better! Democrats CARE about you! Let them keep making your life BETTER! Vote Democrat in 2014, and Hillary (God help us) in 2016!" But the trick is, politicians DON'T care about 'you' as an individual. They care about getting...

Front End fail may have only been the visible trouble.

What the user sees interfacing with a web site isn't the really important part - in fact, I'd argue that it's about 10%. The user actually has to be able to get the product they're wanting, whether it's information or entertainment or to purchase something. How many times have you gone to Amazon, fo...

Re: Shut Down Obama Care Site

President Barack Obama's HealthCare.gov site is riddled with security flaws that put user data of millions of people at risk and it should be shut down until fixed, several technology experts warned lawmakers on Tuesday. The testimony at a congressional hearing could increase concerns among many Am...

Re: Democrats start to jump ship...

And in all honesty, looking at the fouled-up mess that's Obamacare I find it hard to imagine that we could even begin to pull off single-payer... Even if we weren't $17 trillion+ in debt, and climbing daily in a way that'd make a Saturn 5 green with envy - this administration's not exactly packed wi...
