Hands-down the best live-action/real-life/cosplay I've ever seen of Daria Morgendorffer and Jane Lane. The only way this could be better would be if they were making out.

ness problems. Software often solves business problems despite being soul-crushingly boring and of minimal technical complexity. For example, consider an internal travel expense reporting form. Across a company with 2

'Nigger' to be replaced with 'Slave'; 'Injun' removed as well. Yes, this will solve all of our racism problems. [FACEPALM] Talk about missing the point.

Yes, maybe if we remove a word from our language, racism will go away. Let's focus on that instead of the actual policies, practices, and attitudes that create racism. Jesus fucking christ, in case you can't tell, this paragraph is sarcasm.

Ridiculous waste of taxpayer money and mistreatment of asthmatics. Fuck Texas; a useless piece of shit punitive state full of rednecks who feel good about incarcerating people. I wonder how Sparky Dean feels about being a thug who puts people in life for smoking a flower. He should be ashamed of himself. No better than a nazi war criminal who shoots a jew because he was "following orders".

They also claim a half ounce is worth $2400; TOTAL BULLSHIT. More like $75-$200.

Wow. I used to play this "game" [which has no objective or way to win] all the time as a kid. I was always amazed by the patterns that existed. It took mankind almost 40 years of playing this "game" to finally create "life" within it. Very awesome geek news!

Wow, it takes 34 million iterations to create a new child. But the new "life" keeps on creating new "life" -- forever.

Did we not learn from the patent/copyright/intellectual property issues surround the human genome? Companies holding a patent on breast cancer tests, so that they make money off of every woman who wants to avoid cancer? Patenting life is messed up. But a broad patent on synthetic life could be just as bad -- it could completely stifle our progress as a species, in the name of getting one corporation rich.

Call me a socialist, but I'd rather see all of mankind benefit from the technological advances of synthetic life. THIS IS BIG STUFF. This is possibly the most life-changing technological breakthrough that we'll see in our lifetime.

The real issue is not that the patent shouldn't exist at all, but that it is too broad. Go ahead and profit off your invention for 8 yrs -- but you shouldn't be allowed the hold the rest of the planet back with an overly-broad patent during that time. And you should only get 8 years.

A lot of us are thinking the patent system is a net loss for society..

This is a major, major breakthrough.
Once we can create life with technical precision, mother nature combined with technology will accomplish unimagined things that were previously not possible with technology alone.

Dildo Valerie attempts to one-up the "real-life Dethklok" pic found on the internet. I agree that her 3 selections are superior, but what should the other 2 be?

Tired of losing your luggage at the airport? Buy yourself a $16 starter pistol, and put it in your bag. You will never lose your luggage again. It's too embarrassing for TSA to lose track of a weapon. Just make sure you declare it! Sun Tzu would be proud.

Very interesting. I think I might rather have my sleep cycle messed up than not eat for 12-16 hours, though. Still, it's nice to know that our 'food rhythm' overrides the circadian rhythm.
