So, what OS does it target? I'm guessing windows, since that was the most prevalent OS on the net. But, servers might be unix based, so it could target one of the unices. comment by usgoosht on Highly-complex malware has secretly spied on computers for years, say researchers 16 hours, 7 minutes ago

This is funny. All the people in Mexico are protesting the bribe given to the first lady. They are outraged. But are they really outraged over the bribe, or over the fact they didn't collect it? I postulate that 99% of the Mexican population, if placed in the same position, would have accepted the bribe. comment by usgoosht on Mexico's president, under pressure over mansion, discloses $3 million in assets Nov 20, 2014 7:34 PM [GMT]

How hard could it be to install those hydraulic posts that are used to restrict access to streets to buses? They lower slowly as the bus approaches, and once the bus drives through, they raise really quickly.

Do it the opposite at the subway, when the door signals where it is, the posts opposite it lower quickly, and after the train is gone they raise slowly.

They would only have to be 4 or 5 feet tall, and a foot or so apart. If someone was pushed, they would hit a post and be able to grab it.

Seems like it would be cheap compared to fully enclosing the station. And flexible, as the doors could stop anywhere, and only the posts there would lower. comment by usgoosht on Why Subway Systems Havent Installed More Safety Tech Yet Nov 18, 2014 11:15 PM [GMT]

This site is holy to three religions. If Islam is really a religion of peace and tolerance, why are they unwilling to share it with those other religions? Why do they insist on having it all to themselves?

Allow everyone to worship at this site. Sort of a UN heritage site, open to all. comment by usgoosht on Synagogue axe attack: why has violence surged in Jerusalem? Nov 18, 2014 11:08 PM [GMT]

The real cause is unfettered breeding. If they stopped having more children than they can afford to raise properly, this 'crisis' would disappear. The dysfunctional Latin culture they have doesn't help, but the root cause is still having babies they can't afford.

The Catholic church has a lot to answer for. If Pope Francis wants to truly support the poor, he needs to either have the church pay for all these excess children, or allow artificial birth control. comment by usgoosht on Gang violence in El Salvador fuelling countrys child migration crisis Nov 18, 2014 10:42 PM [GMT]

Fanatics? Afraid to say Muslims? Come on, they did this because their faith encourages it in their holy book, the Koran.

They need to remove the satanic verses from the Koran; until they do, this is a perfectly legitimate expression of Islam. comment by usgoosht on 'This was a cruel murder of Jews who came to pray': Thousands gather in grief as four rabbis massacred by fanatics in Jerusalem synagogue axe attack a Nov 18, 2014 10:32 PM [GMT]

The best thing that could happen for Mexico, is for them to adopt another language. Since their problems are caused by their culture, and culture is kept in language, adopting a new language would allow them to leave their dysfunctional culture behind.

Obviously, with the proximity to the US, english would be the best candidate, but they could probably find funding from China to adopt Chinese, or even use German or Japanese or Korean.

They need to do something, because they are stuck spinning their wheels right now. comment by usgoosht on Flash Points: Has missing-students incident derailed any hope of reform in Mexico? Nov 18, 2014 03:39 AM [GMT]

And they have the US government to thank for that. The US government gave them the leverage of software patents, that enabled them to stave off competition.

Innovations they patented, that cost a few million dollars, earned Apple billions, because the US government allowed it. That wasn't the original intent of patents, but it seems to have become the rule. How is society benefited by allowing such suppression of competition, and extraction of wealth from consumers? comment by usgoosht on Fun Number: Apple Is Now Worth More Than The Entire Russian Stock Market Nov 17, 2014 12:58 AM [GMT]

What was he thinking, converting to a primitive cult like Islam? It's sad, but he paid the price for his folly. comment by usgoosht on Video claims ISIS beheaded American Nov 17, 2014 12:23 AM [GMT]

This is a guy who told his forces to shoot down a civilian airliner flying to Moscow, in order to give him a pretext for invasion. That they shot down the wrong plane doesn't change who he is.
