Actually, the friend's brain will still be sending the signals, it's just that there is a cable break preventing the signal from reaching the muscle. This tech could prove very interesting for those with loss of muscle function, particularly if they can set up the feedback function, too.

Not sure I understand your point.
If Lewis thought the f-35B was shit, and he thought the f-35C was shit, why would he not still think the f-35B is still shit when the govenment u-turned?
It's all about the merits of one plane over another; not, as you seem to be implying, the merits of one variant over another.
When deploying the Grammar Nazi alert, one should re-read the original article, any comments to which one is replying and one's own text before posting - just in case one inadvertently shows one's self up. Case in point: you have come to an entirely unlikely conclusion (albeit providing a good hook for a pun) because you did not pay attention to the period of time between wounding and death.
Two HOURS, not days.
it's the combo..
wandering about with the sense of hearing blanked off can be hazardous but, as you point out, not noticable fatal; the increase in lethality occurs when you combine the loss of hearing with the loss of vision and general awarenesss you get from texting or checking your twitter feed or whatever.
Fair enough points
You do need to compare like for like. That would either include the feed stock to the refinery (and distribution to fuel pumps) or exclude the feedstock to the power-plant.
I would hazard a guess that if you look at the entire production chain things probably even out somewhat once you take into account mining of coal, construction of hydro-dams and oil rigs and the whole fun and games of nuclear.
Rogerborg, do you know Charles personally?
If not, why the ad hominem attack?
Whilst I don't agree with Charles' interpretation of the numbers nor with his car anology, I see no reason to launch an attack on him or his friends. What evidence do you have that he's even in the UK, let alone within the M25? And how on earth do you manage to divine his trustafarian status from his post?
Hang on a mo'
I think you're going off the deep end here, Andus!
Lamo's defense is that he was worried about operational security in Iraq. Without going to wikileaks (not advisable from the office) I can't comment on whether this worried was justified or not, but I know I'd be rather pissed off if one of my friends was killed as result of the leaked intel.
Had Manning confined himself to leaking the videos, I bet Lamo wouldn't have done anything, but the 260,000 diplomatic cables could easily contain info useful to 'terrorists' and other 'bad people'. There's no way Manning read all that info before releasing it - there's just too much to read.
With 'Tom 38', we can at least maintain a semblance of continuity through an argument.
And, whilst you are correct in pointing out the cyclic nature of the global economy, there is still a significant amount that individual governments can do to affect their local economies. Compare and contrast Germany and Greece, for example.
How terribly patronising
Why do so many people insist on believing that older people (I assume that's the mom and pop that are being referred to) are useless at technology? At what age do you qualify for mom & pop status? 40? 50? 70? My father (72) is quite capable of understanding dual boot after less than five minutes of explanation.
People are, on average, averagely intelligent(!). I generally find that most of the issues surounding (mis)use of computers is down to inadaquate explanation of what is going on, not stupidity on the part of the user.
