Police stats inflate the number of guns actually stolen in Blighty

KBeee
Meh

Nothing much changes

It was only a few years ago that certain types of air pistols were banned because

"half of all firearms recovered by the Metropolitan Police last year were these air pistols adapted to fire live rounds".

Sounds like a LOT of guns...

After they had been banned it turned out that the correct statement should have been

"half of all firearms, adapted from other things, recovered by the Metropolitan Police last year were these air pistols adapted to fire live rounds"

The actual number was 5.

Little error?

"... the threat of terrorism was called a "cover for action," something to trigger an emotional response that can be used to get powers that would otherwise be available."

I think there should be a "not" before "otherwise" or "be" in there

Well, AOL banned "Breast" which upset the Breast Cancer Support groups, and I got banned from a forum for talking about the Japanese legend/historical figure Yoshitsune.. So what could possibly go wrong?

On the other hand, if (when) Gov.uk needs Daily Mail "Think Of The Children" headlines, then maybe they can say "We did a Consultation..."

Snowden journo's partner wins partial injunction on seized data

KBeee

I should imagine that what has been disclosed so far by Mr. Snowden and The Guardian is the tip of the iceberg. The Gruadian - and probably Mr. Snowden - is usually pretty sensitive about what gets released so as not to endanger people. HMG and USG are probably crapping themselves in case more immediate and sensitive stuff gets revealed. Hence a dump of everything Mr. Snowden has would probably be the worse thing that could happen. Plus HMG likes to show how "tough" it is on people that step out of line (so long as it's not themseves).

Working for a big utility

our computer system went down last week, and someone jokingly said "Chinese Hackers!"

Then someone else said "But we're owned by the Chinese, they don't need to Hack us"

"US Hackers!"

When essential utilities such as water, gas, electricity etc. are foreign owned, I can't really see the problem, just so long as we do as we're told

It Doesn't Matter

You have to realise, the only security they're concerned with is security of funding. If a USB stick gets them into trouble, then more funding is needed. If there's a Bad Egg on their books then they need more funding. If there's too much info coming in from their spying they need more funding... etc. etc. etc.

Sex offender wins case against Facebook vigilantism

KBeee
Happy

People also seem to be confusing being on a Sex Offenders register as meaning Paedophile. Couple of years ago a guy staying in a hostel in Scotland was caught by a cleaning lady having "relations" with his bicycle in his room. The room was locked, but the cleaner used her own key to get in. She complained, the guy was arrested, and convicted and put on a Sex Offenders register. Now if you didn't know the details, and you saw his name come up on Facebook as being a convicted and Registered Sex Offender, you might start worrying about your children being near him. Your children would be safe (though your bike might not be). Then he gets run out of town for using a bicycle as a masturbation aid?

I heroically resisted calling him a pedalphile.

China begins work on world-beating MEGA power cables

Higher voltage reduces transmission losses (at the cost of greater clearance distances/insulators), which probably explains where the

"We can reduce 317,000 tons of sulfur dioxide and 267,000 tons of nitrogen oxide which would otherwise be produced during the transportation," quote comes from, though without stating what this is compared to, these figures are meaningless - 800kV Vs. 400kV? 800kV Vs. 1000V?

Sony 'fesses to Whitney Houston price hike 'error'

KBeee

I should imagine that most Sony Music people (much like TV Execs.) don't listen to music (boast about refusing to have a TV in the house) and rely on software to make decisions for them. There's usually a Darwinian "Survival of the Fittest" argument here, in that "if it makes money, it must be good". The same argument could be used to promote slavery of course - I FED and HOUSED them for 2 years while all they had to do was make my products, and when they wanted to leave they only owed me 1 years wages... Such altruism...

Wasn't Sony Music the company that thought that putting root kits onto P.C.'s from legitimately bought C.D.'s was OK, and the only thing they did wrong was getting caught? And they still believe they did nothing wrong.

And yet morally bankrupt corporations are still spouting "morals" to us.

Government - For the Ignorant, By the Ignorant

When you see the Government Minister responsible for energy being interviewed on TV, and having had it pointed out to him that due to Government policies electricity costs will pretty much double over the next few years and he replies "Yes, but your bills will go down due to higher energy efficiency in your home" with a straight face, you wonder if he's a really good liar, or if he's really that stupid!
