  1. CCleaner is pretty dope. I fix computers, networks, and other tech widgets professionally. HTH.
  2. people tend to get all bent out of shape when i post facts, so i've been quiet. taks Yo taks, opinions on the Gulf Stream shifting/underwater Methane Hydrates?
  3. Man Wals, you think I got time to read the entire thread before posting? Dang.
  4. Yeah well my **** is bigger than yours so there.
  5. ALSO There is not much we can do about global warming at this point aside from crazy mad science (geoengineering with bioengineered organisms, creating something that will capture the methane before it escapes to the atmosphere etc.). It is on the verge of spiraling out of control due to the release of vast undersea deposits of methane hydrates which are about 20 times more effective at trapping heat than lazy CO2. This is from last year: http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/c...omb-938932.html This is more recent: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/...90814103231.h
  6. You have no chance to survive make your time. HA HA HA HA ... There's plenty of ways to survive using already existing technologies to continue to produce food and weather the impending ice age. I waver between being too cynical to believe that we'll be able to band together well enough to survive it on a large scale and optimistic enough to think that impending cataclysm will bring nations and peoples together and allow them to overcome their differences and pool their resources to get everyone through it. In my wildest flights of fancy I envision something like Asimov's Caves of
  7. It's all a losing game anyway. Even if you minimize/eliminate man's impact on global warming, we're at the end of a thaw. The coming ice age is inevitable. http://www.21stcenturysciencetech.com/articles/Ice_Age.html Eventually this interglacial period will lead into another ice age via too much cold water from glaciers hitting the ocean and adjusting the Gulf Stream so that it no longer warms up Europe. http://www.commondreams.org/views04/0130-11.htm For what it's worth I've seen the science on both of these sites being thrown around other places before, these are just th
  8. Saw The Men Who Stare At Goats with some friends the other day. Excellent movie, highly recommended.
  9. I think most of you are very pessimistic and things will continue to improve in one way or another. There will be setbacks, but I don't see another Dark Ages in the near future, the world is doing pretty well all things considered. Sure, some states are looking to censor and redistribute the bandwidth of the internet, but there's also a pretty strong movement for net neutrality, and it's one that the current US administration seems to be behind. Current antibiotics aren't effective against some bacterial infections due to overuse; but now that we're aware of the problem steps are be
  10. Theres so much wrong with this post I may need to construct a pie-chart or something: 1) "What's not so wrong is boosting the economy of the area or improving living standards for local Somalis." Do you envision these pirates as a benevolent charity that goes from mud hut to mud hut passing out money? The only locals making money are the ones that contributed to the effort (IE: an RPG), everyone else is still having dirt for dinner. 2) "You can bet the pirates have killed or hurt less innocent people in the kidnappings than famine would have if these pirates hadn't gone out and fen
  11. Actually they have cured HIV in at least one person. Unfortunately since it relies on bone marrow transplants from carriers of a gene that are predominantly (exclusively?) white it won't work so well in Africa. Sorry Africa!
