The Future Of Touch-Sensitive Prosthetic Limbs: Real-Time...

Hey, that industry launched VCRs, if it does the same for people without hands, that's a win.  (Oct 21, 2013 | post #2)

White House garden overgrown during shutdown

If only I had federal employees to weed my plants, life would be awesome. I doubt the First Lady is tearing down those barricades to tend tomatoes in defiance of federal law, though.  (Oct 15, 2013 | post #1)

How Kickstarter Became Irrelevant To Technology Start-Ups

Nothing, it doesn't even glow all that well. But that's an even silly reason to ban it as some sort of evil GMO.  (Aug 30, 2013 | post #4)

How Kickstarter Became Irrelevant To Technology Start-Ups

Someone predicted the demise of the horse and buggy. Saying that cars weren't common and therefore the horse and buggy was fine didn't make sense. <p>Tech people are libertarian to the extreme, they don't want the company that is collecting a VIG off their donations picking winners and losers artificially.  (Aug 19, 2013 | post #2)

ATLAS Higgs Results: One Or Two Higgs?

I think you're right. They had to call it a Higgs because it got sold for $10 billion to find a Higgs, but it may be something even more interesting.  (Jan 15, 2013 | post #2)

I agree, and people make the same claim about guns and violence and sex in media, alcohol, you name it. Why we have controls on anything children can buy is a mystery, since apparently sensory inputs don't ever change people  (Sep 5, 2012 | post #2)

First lady says election closer than 2008

It should be closer this year. In 2008 Pres Obama did not take public financing and McCain was stuck with it, so Obama got to spend 2X as much money as McCain, more than Bush and Kerry spent combined in 2004. The Republican challenger is at least not shackled by that. He'll still lose; we haven't had an incumbent defeated in 20 years.  (Jul 16, 2012 | post #1)

Anti-Science Hippies Make Progress Toward Labelling GMOs ...

I was okay with most of your comment, and then you went into crackpottery with that last sentence. I don't care how many steers you raised - I raised a few as well - there is zero science data for your claim.  (Jun 22, 2012 | post #8)

Anti-Science Hippies Make Progress Toward Labelling GMOs ...

What's wrong with Wal Mart beef? It is going to have the same standard as any other beef and the same spot checking as any other beef, organic or not: very little. The label says what, beef?  (Jun 22, 2012 | post #6)

Anti-Science Hippies Make Progress Toward Labelling GMOs ...

That's kind of like asking why Jews need to hide if they don't want a special label, right? The legislation is not about truth, it is about a warning label - to scare people - over something that has done no harm. Organic food has sickened and killed far more people than any GMOs, since GMOs are sitting at zero. If they required accuracy in labels for all foods, rather than just the genetic makeup, that would be worthwhile. But it would kill the organic food industry. You do not want to know what is in or on organic food.  (Jun 19, 2012 | post #4)

Anti-Science Hippies Make Progress Toward Labelling GMOs ...

Well, maybe you are a sane hippie rather than an anti-science one. Nothing wrong with sane huppies. But you do not know what is in your food right now. Do you know what 100% organic means? It means 95% organic with dozens of synthetic ingredients. Do you know what pesticides are on your organic food? No you do not. Do you know what GMOs are in the feed of your organic beef? No, and this legislation specifically exempts the organic food multinationals from any accountability. You can avoid GMOs as easily as organic. How many sugar beets do you eat?  (Jun 19, 2012 | post #2)
