Westinghouse goes bankrupt? Somewhere Tesla is dancing. With a pigeon.


About that. Westinghouse was the guy who firmly believed in Tesla's AC model and provided the funding to make it happen.

Though Westinghouse today is a subsidiary of Toshiba.

If anything, he'd be a lot more joyous if Edison's descendant companies all went out of business.

Westinghouse also screwed Tesla out of royalties. The original contract said that Tesla would get a royalty on ever kilowatt generated, but Westinghouse realized this would be a huge amount of money. So he begged Tesla to forfeit the royalties, saying his board would kick him out otherwise. Tesla agreed, as he felt that Westinghouse was the only one who believed in his ideas. Tesla died penniless.

Highlighting how oblivious you are to Trump's ACTUAL corruption while still talking about Hillary's "alleged" corruption just makes you look like a complete moron.

You know how they say you can't shame the shameless? Well, you can't inform the morons. Information is their kryptonite, hence their love of "fake news". Ugh, tired of hearing that term applied to anything they don't like.

Man's body 'dissolved' by Yellowstone hot spring after seeking place to swim.

Hard to believe an entire human body could dissolve in a pool of water in 24 hours. Crazy.

Also, too: Darwin award winner.

When I visited Yellowstone, the amount of stupidity on display from other visitors was amazing. Walking too close to buffalo, touching boiling water (with a sign nearby in multiple languages saying water was scalding hot)...I picked up a book in the gift shop called Death in Yellowstone. Good read. This guy certainly wasn't the first person to hop in a hot spring.

Scottish Martial Arts wrote on Nov 10, 2016, 20:38:
The thing I'm taking solace in at this point is that since the GOP will control all three branches of government, they will be 100% responsible for their actions. That means that if and when they take regulatory and legislative action that actively fucks citizens and consumers, there will be no one to blame but the GOP. Governing parties always lose seats in midterms, and if the GOP follows through on their stated agenda, they will quickly find themselves in the minority. The only question is how much of the damage they inflict will be reversible, such as common carrier classification, versus irreversible, such as abandoning NATO.

Wishful thinking. They're gonna get some mileage out of the "Thanks Obama..." meme for a long time. Mark my words, they'll say something like "it will take a long time to get us out of the mess that Obama created". Oh, and as for 2018, there are 6 democratic seats up for re-election...in red states.

Lot of Russian trolls on today. Yah..."zero reason" to go into Syria...other than ISIS, which has attacked us and our allies...maybe the Great Pumpkin-Elect will actually put up or shut up on that campaign promise and do something about them (of course, Pooty Poot won't allow it).

"What is all that pussy talk about cybersecurity, net neutrality and internet freedom? It's all just limiting the good US telcom companies and the security of our citizens. I declare all this girlish stuff dead!" (Trump, 2017)

RE: Fleeing to Canada
Trump will also build a wall in the north, but all the guards will be looking SOUTH from the wall... Like in the good old GDR! People who get caught trying to escape will be tortured, because torture makes people tell the truth! FACT! RE: witch hunts and painful interrogations of witches!

More like, Canada will build an ice wall, to keep the white walkers out.

Someone better put John Oliver on suicide watch.

I can't say I care for the man but Trump is the enema that Washington and the media need right now. For the first time I've seen other media outlets surpass Foxnews in biased coverage. ABC, Huffington Post, CNN et al. let go of all pretenses in their frantic attempts to stave off a Trump presidency. The media coverage of this election was frankly appalling.

I tend to lean right of center so I'm not displeased. I thought Trump had an excellent speech to close it off too, surprisingly gracious and restrained. Makes you wonder how much of the campaign stuff was strictly show. Looking forward to things settling down now, hopefully he has successfully cowed the party and the establishment a bit.

I doubt he wrote a single word of that speech.

I think Derek is going to be semi-right about this game. Derek Smart isn't an idiot, he's just a little hot headed about certain topics and lets his ego get the best of him. Does that make him wrong? Not at all.

Personally, I love his crusade against Star citizen.. he's got emotion involved in this as he was the original star citizen but he released it.


Mr. Smart, is that you? j/k :/

"...but there's also a downside. "One unintended consequence of quantum computation is breaking some of the cryptographic tools currently underpinning cybersecurity""

Downside? That's what most people are researching this technology for in the first place, including our government. They just don't want OTHER entities to use it on their encryption.

To most people, Rage was overhyped and disappointing as an id game. I personally really enjoyed it. Not enough to buy the expansions, but still.

And to call it "Shadows of Kurgansk". They might as well have called it Rise of Kurgansk, as generic as that sounds.

Apparently there's something known as "Computer Elbow" (similar to Tennis Elbow). Might be that. I know I've had elbow pain on occasion, and my job has me typing all day.
