This study is utter rubbish

Any study that is a self-selected listener opinion poll is crap. Drawing conclusions from this study is just pointless.

US Navy aims to make jetfuel from seawater uranium

@ChrisC

What are you smoking? "So, short of a massive and sudden dust storm," which happens all the time in desert.

Do you know what we call sand traveling at high speed? Sand blasting. Even with an army of mops and a lot of panels, after a while they will be coroded beyond usefulness and then what? They aren't that recyclable and they aren't biodegradable. And neither are the battery back-ups.You should lay off the pot.

I hate hippies

"Either way, if you do the maths, you find that covering a small fraction of the world's deserts with solar power systems can meet our energy needs"

And what do you do when the wind blows and covers the panels with dust ? Put some sort of vibrating mechanism under them, right? And where do you get the power for that? Go back to hugging trees you moron.

How hard is it to write "staffed spacecraft" ?

How hard is it to get a life and stop obssesing about what is essentially the english language?

Bug exposes eight years of Linux kernel

Alex 11
Linux

Isn't this a bit like Hot Coffee?

I mean in order to exploit this bug you need to have a kernel module (presumably third party) that doesn't implement a certain function (hope i understood it clearly). So it's less of a kernel bug and more of a third party bug by proxy. Kinda like the whole Hot Coffee mod for GTA-SA.

We need a "i need a better analogy" icon.

@James 5

"The directors of any companies seeking to develop robots that do not obey all three laws should just be dropped into a threshing machine (non-robotic so it doesn't need to worry about the laws!)."

And how do you propose to represent these laws in a way that a machine can understand them? How does a machine determine these things?

Stay out of tech subjects if you're a dumb hippie, kthx.
