Exploding super-prang asteroid to pepper Earth, trigger deadly ice age – no, wait, it happened 466 million years ago

Re: Third interstellar visitor?

It's poetic licentiousness.

World's largest heap of untreated nuclear waste needs more bots to cart around irradiated crap

Re: Wow

Crap doesn't pile up in deserts. A, there's not that many animals, and B, the crap has significant value in such a restricted environment. Thus organisms have evolved to, ahem, 'exploit' said crap.

Oops: Rockets lighting their tails is a good thing – but not three-plus hours before lift-off

All steel construction

It sounds like something apart from the rocket caught on fire somehow. Yet it's to be assumed that the launcher's exposed parts will feature nothing flammable which could burn during a launch. That leaves either a straight up engine fire within the mobile launcher itself, or some sort of fuel leak associated with the rocket above.

Let's hope it was only a burning diesel engine and not some unruly fuel lines.

Full of beans? Sadly not as fellow cracks open tin at dinner to find just one

So the beans don't really exist until they are observed? Tell that to the people in the lift!

I suspect that human bean was baked.

<em>"Oh, and the summer heat wreaking havoc on my CPU? The heatsink was broken. We're water-cooled now, baby!"</em>

How does one "break" a heat sink? Aren't they basically aluminum blocks with fins on? A hammer blow could do it, but that would wreck the CPU it's attached to.

Come clean Richard. I'm guessing you installed a bigger heat sink and forgot the conduction paste. Or perhaps some debris got in between. If so, you're lucky your CPU isn't a fried chip now. ;-)

Re: Re:A word from Big John

Hey, I had to delete my 12 year old account and make a new one to do this. That kinda shoots you down, don't it?

Re: A word from Big John

No, I just decided to delete my registration here. I got tired of being silently censored by the staff here for my political beliefs. The ElReg editors in their wisdom placed me on their "must vet" list (secretly) which had the effect of holding up my posts while allowing my detractors to freely harass me.

After leaving I found I could read what goes on here with much more aplomb and a lot less disgust. Still slanted tho.

This organization is sick. They don't even see that what they've done is totally wrong and indefensible. I got that impression directly from one of the editors, who didn't even bother denying what they had done to me. BTW, I only signed up again a moment ago, just because I happened to see my name mentioned by my old antagonists. ;-/

I won't be posting under this name after this, because the same censorship would occur again. I wouldn't mind so much if they made it clear to everyone what they were doing to conservatives. It's the sneaky underhanded treatment that ticks me off. And since they were reading all my posts before allowing them on the site, I couldn't expose them for what they are. This is why we conservatives keep saying we're being suppressed by leftists. It's happening.

So enjoy your little protected bubble, guys. ;-/
