This doesn't help either, especially since Ferguson...

70 years too late

An all-white jury convicted him in a flash, 10 minutes.

I didn't think it would be possible to elect a jury foreman and fill out the paperwork in only 10 minutes, and this is a human being's life. Disgusting. The Manson jury took nine days.

Kim mite seem to be a nutter but i don't think he's that stupid as to realy do something .

He already did, ask Sony. And he didn't even try to do damage. Consider if he had emptied their bank accounts at the same time he took down their network? (Maybe screw with the banks network too!) Suppose he corrupted a years worth of backups? How about hacking those digital movie servers to play DPRK subliminal messages? Changes to every movie in post production? Having the drives in a server case look for resonant frequencies and walk across the room? He just published the stuff, he didn't actually try and do damage and he had access to do damage!

However it is a big wake up call to business that anyone can at any time close them down. Better get some real expert IT in place. Think of what he could do to a power grid, air traffic control, traffic and train signals, a refinery, or an operating reactor! Get a good nights sleep.

Catch them? They may be Inside North Korea.


If they are then it's not much of a threat .

Yeah, it isn't like they have Nukes or an army or anything thing like millions of followers ready to die for a supreme leader.

Shall I remind you of the visit by the DPRK's diplomats to a barber shop? http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-27038723

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_Armistice_Agreement wrote:
In March 2013, North Korea announced that it was scrapping all non-aggression pacts with South Korea, along with other escalations such as closing the border and closing the direct phone line between the two Koreas. North Korea stated that it had the right to make a preemptive nuclear attack. A United Nations spokesman stated that the armistice agreement had been adopted by the U.N. General Assembly, and could not be unilaterally dissolved by either North Korea or South Korea.

I guess someone has to say the obvious. North Korea is no longer fighting a war of words.

I'll have to admit to being impressed by the Marketing jingoism!

About like any claim about a technology being green.

They wouldn't keep doing it if people, even smart people, didn't keep falling for it.

Kind of like direct mail advertising. If 0.01% send money, you are a millionaire.

[UPDATE:]

Pixelations still occurring. They are better than they've been; NCIS pixelated twice, (normally four times), and NCIS New Orleans also pixelated twice. Wheel of Fortune also pixelated once.


TL

FYI I watched NCIS OTA and it pixelated once. Didn't record a time though.

Don't we have to 'Teach' our children Right from Wrong?


Of course! Obligé!

Who taught the first child? Have we just arrived at the unmoved mover again?

Morals and ethics are entirely self discoverable. It does help to have a push however.


A push to where my friend?

Teaching is the push.

Sometimes I think he would prefer

I suspect some wished he wrote that way.

I've just got to wonder why that took so long Gary.

Cheers.

Obstruction of justice, or as many feel in this case injustice. Essentially internal affairs can't tamper (question) while a criminal inquiry (grand jury) is poking around.

It was one of the coldest days of this winter past, and I was hurrying along the Diag to class. The blistering cold did not turn my eyes from all the white privilege falling around [me]. All those white snowflakes falling thick upon the autumn leaves, burying their colors. Majoring in womyn’s studies, I’ve learned that oppression comes in many forms. Sometimes we fail to notice it because it’s just everywhere – just like that white snow.

@Gary
100% of people are racist. Got that yet?

:) Can I take that as your answer to my question? :)

Yes you can. Like anything not everyone acts on it every time. :)

You forget that this isn't how you defeated the Nazis. All those bombs only temporarily shut down the Nazi state. You defeated the Nazis when you rebuild Germany, rebuild their economy and ensured they had enough to eat, replaced the Nazi leadership with a democratically elected government.

That only works if they want a democratically elected government. The assumption that they want a democratically elected government is false, hence the mess.

And yes, a lot of people do think that evolution is true but that God had a hand in it.

Depends how you ask the question, and the responders interpretation.

Perhaps many believe a God 'Started' The Universe, then let evolution take its course.

Agree it is a step in the correct direction.



Anything inexplicable would be Gods work to religious people. Die hard scientists would do anything to attain an explanation or rather an answer otoh.

inexplicable = beyond their IQ to understand
