Re: Explosions at Boston Marathon

Again, I am always surprised that a giant conspiracy can be kept under wraps so well by so many people. What with no men on the moon, aliens at roswell, 9/11 being an inside job and now this, its amazing that no one has come forward.

Except of course neckbeards on the internet. They know it all.

Re: Explosions at Boston Marathon

Nothing wrong with discussing it and looking at the pictures. When it crosses the line into 'here's some suspicious activity, let's now go lynch the guy' it becomes a problem. Or the media splashing the name around the place, which also hasn't happened. The more eyes on shit the better, IMO - crowd ...

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

'If the government makes it illegal, it will plummet in value and become worthless', is what I'm referring to. Given that it started as an untraceable (almost) currency and was immediately adopted for illegal transactions, making it 'illegal' won't stop the majority of its users from conducting thos...

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

No, no they won't at all. That's not true in the slightest. The primary use of Bitcoins for ages was/is for 'untraceable' payment of less than legal and outright illegal things, like child porn, drugs and illegal firearms on places like the Silk Road and other TOR-related parts of the web. As to it ...

Re: North Korea Saber Rattling

You know, I've heard some doozies in my time, but referring to the DMZ as 'speed bump' before moving back to the now-defunct Pusan line is pretty much the dumbest thing I've heard in a really long time. There isn't a defensible line there at all, it was only there in the first Korean war because it ...

Re: New strain of bird flu which has never been seen kills 2

I know I always start the day by swilling down a cup full of Swine Flu, to round off my complete breakfast of lightly buttered Avian Flu and poached pneumonia, I mean someone told me something bad could happen but I seem to have forgotten all about it.

Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

I think only US Customs folk use them, IIRC. Bull-pup design works well in smaller confines. I carried the AusSteyr (the variant being used by the Australian soldiers in the picture above) for enough years - it does pop up as 'exotic future gun' in heaps of sci-fi movies, too. Wouldn't be too out of...

Re: Bank Run in Cyprus: Who's Next?

I heard on the news last night about a Cypriot University that had a large payroll for its staff - most of which was lifted as a part of this. Nothing like having your payroll taken before you can hand it out?

Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

Not true, depends how it's done. They have the advantage of prepared positions and traps, as people have stated before - you engage them, withdraw into the prison and inflict casualties from whatever traps you've set. Go back to the next line of defence, then do it again. And again. And again. While...

Re: World War Z movie - Brad Pitt and Paramount! W000T!

A miniseries on this would have been so good. Much more scope to expand it and narrate it, explaining things like Patient 0 and the cool stuff like outbreaks spreading through organ transplant in other parts of the world. I guess this sort of really fast ant-like spread really does show how things l...

The large banks today did not garner the trust of their customers. Many are only that large through acquisition, or knowing the right member of Congress, not good business strategy.

Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

I quite liked Merle's decoy and then ambush, felt pretty neat to me. For the want of Darryl/Rick/Michonne/pretty much anyone else, instead of being 'only' 8 dead, it would have been a complete route and a dead Governor. As it was, it put a pretty serious dent in the offensive capability of Woodbury....
