All we can hope is next time they are wary of massacring civilians indiscriminately for fear of consequences.

Go kick some Assad. :^)

Okay, judgment time: In order to be super-duper unbiased (hey, it's a moderator thing 😀) I showed only the captions and the picture to my missus, Barometer of the Public Taste, who has never visited here. Both her # 1 and # 3 picks were from the same respondent (nothing in the rules against multiple answers, right?)

# 1 - Jaundiced Eye "Wait 'til you see what I did on your bed............."
# 2 - Admiral Gloval "This is what I think about you and your book."
# 3 - Jaundiced Eye "Now you can use it in the bathroom............"

Congrats and PM sent.

Wasn't an outrage involved with that one?


Thanks... I will add 12 hours as that's about how long they last these days.

I re-read the rules on post 1... it's gone over the 48 hour maximum to collect the first ten so I will collect all the responses posted within the first 48 hours and make a decision tonight.
(I think that is correct. I thought the last one went longer than 48 hours. Hrm.)

I would say that all the victims of the Holocaust were murdered. Yet, their murderers were following the law of the land at the time, put forth by a legitimately elected party and leader.

I can think of one definition of "Murder" that is a grey area that people do disagree legitimately over, so it is not as black-and-white as is being portrayed: capital punishment.

I consider capital punishment to be state-sanctioned murder, because it is the deliberate taking of a verified, viable human life of someone who is not currently a deadly threat to anyone (as the victim is already imprisoned) and this would fit the definition if committed by an individual. Yet, others do not see it that way and there is much debate over its ethos, validity and effectiveness. So, painting everyone else into an extremist corner with oneself as the only paragon of balance is at best an oversimplification.

The cliché answer is the long-awaited SETI@Home toaster. If you have poor CPU cooling you could probably make toast on that... for a short time.

192.168.0.0 – 192.168.255.255 is a non-routable block, along with 10.0.0.0 – 10.255.255.255 and 172.16.0.0 – 172.31.255.255. You won't be able to reach it from the internet (edit: by IP address!)

The $65,000 question is, by giving children younger than 2 years old puffed peanut snacks, do you consequently "train" their developing immune systems not to react to peanuts as allergens? Conversely, does withholding peanut products from children younger than 2 years old make their developing immune systems more prone to react adversely to peanuts when the children finally receive exposure? Third option, is there some shared trait common among people currently living in Israel that makes them genetically less likely to have peanut allergies? This last option is less likely, given the short history of Israel as a nation state.


I'll take small, unmarked bills please. :^)

And now all of you know why tRump is in office. American's don't have a "NONE OF THE ABOVE nincompoops" choice.


I know (hope? well the reply was) you're kidding, but just for anyone outside the U.S. who might think this is actually true... the write-in candidate can be any "nincompoop" the voter chooses, and there is a list at the bottom of the article of candidates (some quite famous ones) who won though not on the ballot with write-in/sticker votes.

How come i only get data from 2008?... got anything more recent to task?


The SETI@Home team is reanalyzing older Arecibo data as at least two significant changes were made since it was recorded. Autocorrelation analysis is now performed, and a bug with the Gaussian fit algorithm was corrected. So, it's actually a good thing, as we could find something that would otherwise have been missed.

You may have to wait several hours to get any work until the splitters generating work catch up to the demand... just about everyone on the project emptied their work cache.

SETI@Home was just recovered from a database corruption and was offline for about a day. Because of this we all ran out of work, so it may take a while before work generation fills up our caches so that there are work units available for everyone.

So please be patient and you will get some work soon. :^)
