They should rather be asking "why didn't the CIA arrange for these vehicles to be covertly fitted with infra red beacons (for drone targeting) before delivery to DAESH?"

Princess Leia, here I come!
there is. it's called the dark web. vendors are rated by buyers and in my experience, this means the best possible purity, short of making it all legal and available from pharmacies. I'm not saying it makes taking drugs safe, but you at least get exactly what you ask for.
Re: Monkey Meth
you're probably right, they got an unusually pure batch. unlikely to be methamphetamine though. "speed" or "whiz" in the uk is generally amphetamine sulphate and of a pretty shite quality. my guess is someone ordered some quality speed paste from Holland or Germany, shared it with their mates and didn't take into account the much greater purity compared to the "pub grub" they would have been used to.
I'm sure there's a copyright issue there somewhere.

i once saw chris eubank buy a litre of Evian at a garage, pour a bit onto his hands to clean them after filling his car, then chuck the almost full bottle in the bin. it was a bizarre moment I will never, ever forget and I've been a fan ever since.
BT needs to be dragged somewhere quiet and dispatched. It's a relic from the bad old days of state monopolies and needs to go.

Re: Judging from the family name - Kosovan
man, that's seriously out of order, equating Kosovans with criminals. it will not do.
i think it's hard to justify custodial sentences for ANY non-violent crimes.
at least one of those statements is deeply disturbing.

far too sophisticated to be the work of the FSB
in Putin's Russia, they send thugs to your offices (hospitalizing anyone who protests) and when your lawyer links the subsequent corporate looting to friends of the big man, that lawyer is arrested, murdered in prison, and then, in a macabre touch that Gogol would have been proud of, posthumously put on trial and convicted. his name was Sergei Magnitsky.

The fact the ULA (a joint venture of Lockheed Martin Corp and Boeing) is still reliant on Russian technology to launch US military hardware has been questioned by some in Congress, with Senator John McCain (R-AZ) complaining that the US was essentially funding Russian companies, despite ongoing sanctions.
or perhaps it's a sign that humanity can achieve more through cooperation?
from SEC Consult Vulnerability Lab:
"While NetUSB was not accessible from the internet on the devices we own, there is some indication that a few devices expose TCP port 20005 to the internet. We don’t know if this is due to user misconfiguration or the default setting within a specific device. Exposing NetUSB to the internet enables attackers to get access to USB devices of potential victims and this would actually count as another vulnerability."
Re: Go, Rand, go!
you mention Rand Paul "making enough noise". well it is interesting to note how mainstream U.S. news organizations are doing their best to starve his campaign of the oxygen of publicity. it's almost as if they think he will go away if they ignore him.
you can sense the entire political and business "establishment" (Democrat AND Republican) becoming increasingly unsettled by Paul and his rather fresh thinking on everything from marijuana to reigning in the military and stopping the insane militarization of the police.
The Patriot Act - precisely the sort of tyrannical governance that the United States was founded to oppose. The Founding Fathers, particularly Thomas Jefferson, would be absolutely horrified. So sad.
And on the horizon, a Bush/Clinton presidential race. It's beyond parody.
Re: I'm confused
this galaxy is 13 billion light years away in time. due to space expanding, it is very much further away in terms of meters
yes, helium and even some lithium was around before stars.
Re: I'm confused
when we say "the universe", we're referring to the sphere of space we can observe. this so called "observable universe" contains everything from which electromagnetic radiation has had time to reach us.
the universe is 13.7 billion years old. however, because space itself is expanding, the radius of the observable sphere is about 46 billion light years.
the further we look, the older the light is - right back to the cosmic microwave background, around 380,000 years after the big bang. we can't see beyond that point because the earlier universe was opaque.
cameron is already out there, weaponized and in the wild. the thought of adding coding to its capabilities is deeply troubling.
how about a small competition for the readers to come up with something? make some relevant bits of artwork available for download (logos, plane shape etc.) and see what happens.
I think the T-shirt design needs to be on a dark coloured shirt. It looks a bit weak on white, IMHO.
it's absolutely essential to base the decision on a quantum event, not a macro event like a coin flip. it's the superposition of the two outcomes that effectively spreads the 50:50 mix of outcomes throughout the multiverse.
One cool use was by Max Tegmark and Anthony Aguire. They co-authored a paper, couldn't agree which of them should have their name listed first, so used a quantum random number generator to decide. In this universe Aguire is listed first but, in 50% of the level I and level III multiverses, Tegmark is listed first. Nice.
