"they believe that the intense light causes art to fade"
There are beliefs, and then there is science:
I didn't read the study but to be fair that's definitely a better safe than sorry situation as there's little harm in banning flashes but if they do cause damage it could be irreparable damage to irreplaceable artifacts. I imagine restrictions will continue until it's clearly demonstrated there is no risk.
Studies link wireless radiation to attention problems, increased rates of autism and more. The World Health Organization (WHO) says that WiFi is a Class 2B carcinogen in the same category as lead and DDT, but their own scientists are now saying there is evidence this type of radiation in more harmful than originally thought and that it should be classified in the same category as tobacco, asbestos and benzene.
Oh the irony of "blaming anti-americanism" while pointing out that America is the worst offender of "people who don't understand a technology should not be allowed to make laws about it".
That makes no sense. What does one have to do with the other? You're saying we should only mention anti-Americanism if the US doesn't also do another unrelated thing that the anti-Americanists are doing? Totally illogical.
The presumption was that if it was easy for an angered populous to overthrow a current administration violently that they might tread carefully.
But how do you square that with the other parts of the constitution? If they really wanted to make it easy, why are all the relevant sections of the body of the Constitution (ie not the Bill of Rights) trying to make it difficult and discouraging it? From what I've read, they gave it all a lot of very careful thought, so it is strange that they would intentionally set up two parts of the Constitution against each other. It seems much simpler that armed revolution is not in fact the purpose of the 2nd.
(If a bit of latency can get you killed in a video game, it cam also get you killed on the operating table.)
I very much doubt these systems are not designed to cope with some latency since there's no such thing as a 100% reliable network. I'm sure not accidentally killing the patient was the number 1 design goal.
This is a good example of why the troll and everyone who replies to him needs reported instantly and ignored.
I think it's a good example of why all replies to a hidden comment should also be hidden. That way the whole waste of time can just be skipped all at once. I started on a greasemonkey script to do that but didn't get around to finishing it.
