Good people will do good, whilst bad people will do evil, but for good people to do evil, why that requires religion.
Burn in hell, the lot of 'em.

I can easily see Apple making a kindle-killer that includes any number of apps that now require an iPhone. In fact, why not make it a mobile phone? I envision bling-hobbled chavs holding enormo boxes to their heads and nattering on, much like the giant boxes from the 1980s. They can't read, can they?
Bless me St. Jobs, for the marketing research I have rendered unto you..
Does the iMiev require regular servicing like petrol burners? I suspect not, so there's a savings right there. Prorated over my lifetime, one of these will likely still be more expensive than typical iron. But then there's the satisfaction in telling the various ancient despot isms to sod off.
Looking for peurile (even sophmoric) comments are you? So as not to dissapoint, here you are:
Are they naming this rocket the "Big Type o'Dong"? Or Kim Il Jong's Ding Dong?
Either way it appears to be prohibited by the UNO, and may well become a test target for the US and Japan.
Enough of the willy-wagging.
My wife is a biofeedback therapist, and what you've described is using biofeedback to learn to control what most people (including polygraphers) believe to be completely automatic responses. Imagine the fun you could have by presenting them with various combinations of responses:
Question 1- Heart rate up, perspiration down, breaths down (100)
Question 2- Heart rate down, perspiration up, breaths down (010)
Might as well bring back trial by combat.
Portable. The concept is relative, as anyone who carried a "portable PC" in the 1980's knows. In any case, 1.5 tonnes is far better than the 20-tonne COIL chemo-beamer. If there is a linear relationship between weight and power, an electrical 1MW laser should weigh about 15 tonnes. That should adequate to toast friendly forces in short order.
" Anyone think the US would shut down power stations and leave themselves at a disadvantage.."
Why yes, yes I do think they would. In fact they did. It was done by Enron, and lead to rolling blackouts and hugely expensive 'leccy. And (surprise!) it was done during a conservative, pro-business, anti-regulation government.
Piratical free enterprise forever! Arrr!
There's no need for a 10MW mains supply for a "charging station". If you look around the back, you'll see a very large battery constantly on trickle-charge supplying 'leccy for the customers out front. This evens out the load seen by the mains, and averages it down.
While it is a brilliant idea, I'll be modest about it.
That's a stunner. I thought the pope believed god was omni-present, omni-etc. Where is the .jewish, .atheist, .agnostic, .pagan, .wikkan, .heresy, and .infidel TLD? I hate to think ICANN are engaging in religious descrimination.
On a related topic, where is the .aggro TLD?
Interesting idea, that. However since we've got ice ages sorted for the next 55Ky, I think petroleum has more useful applications than as fuel. Those complex hydrocarbons are too valuable to burn, as we will discover when they run short. More expensive paint, medicine, plastics, fertilizer, etc.
"Tesla also announced that the US Department of Energy has told it that it expects to begin dispersing in “four to five months” the funds.."
If they used the word "dispersing", then I'll dismiss it as they are no better than they should be. However, if El Reg used "dispersing" instead of "disbursing", consider yourselves roundly censured.
Mine's the one with the dictionary in the pocket.
AC - "the questions that evolution can't answer can still be atributed to a god."
I'm not religious, but its clear to me that any religious person that attempts to reconcile science with religion by recourse to the "God of the Gaps" idea is dooming their religion in several ways:
1. If religion wasn't obscurantist before, then confining God to the obscure will certainly make it so. Remember, there is no security in obscurity, which leads to the next trap for religion in the God of the gaps idea.
2. As the gaps narrow, the God of the gaps diminishes. So much for your omni-everything God!
As a warning the religious: "MIND THE GAP!"
