Re: I still think this is a stupidity/trustworthiness test

Reminds me of the old story about how Thomas Edison would go to lunch with a prospective employee, and then NOT hire them if they salted their meal BEFORE tasting it (something about not wanting to have people who pre-judge situations before getting all their facts, or whatever).

Hypersonic missile successfully hits Ronald Reagan

For whatever it's worth...

The "Fat Man" bomb that was dropped over Nagasaki was a "mere" 21 kilotons.

"Little Boy" was even smaller at 13 and 18 kilotons, and completely flattened Hiroshima.

That's a lotta tanks.

Apple was OK to fire man for private Facebook comments

Big Brother

I'd like to know what was in his original FB posting...

I'm curious where Apple's threshold is for criticism falls. Somewhere between "...still having problems with the iPhone batteries, dammit."

and "Apple products lick the salty sweat off ancient crinkley donkey balls!"

Just curious.

Enough

So Innovatio is suing mostly large companies (hotels, etc)... what's to stop them from couner-suing as a class-action, and hit these bastards back so hard that SCO's ghost would hurt?

NASA to beam Beatles song into deep space

@mondegreening

The two opposing leaders, resplendent in their black jewelled battle shorts, were meeting for the last time, when, a dreadful silence fell, and, at that very moment, the words, "chai guru deva, omm" drifted across the conference table. Unfortunately, in their native tongue, this was the most appalling insult imaginable, so the two opposing battle fleets decided to settle their few remaining differences in order to launch a joint attack on our galaxy, now positively identified as the source of the offending remark. For thousands of years the mighty starships tore across the empty wastes of space and finally dived screaming on to the planet Earth - where, due to a terrible miscalculation of scale, the entire battle fleet was accidentally swallowed by a small dog.
