I would think any up-to-date pedos would be using 256GByte flash sticks, not hard drives. Much easier to conceal!

My experience with SMB was that malformed SMB packets could crash the login process, requiring rebooting the server. That was serveral years ago and it might be fixed now, but nobody in their right mind would accept any kind of SMB protocol packets from the internet!!! Every business should have some form of firewall that allows filtering on protocol type.
That was my first thought as well. I've always suspected that the phenomena ascribed "dark mass" may actually be caused by clusters of black holes. I think it is pretty difficult to distinguish the effects of a cloud of dark mass from a group of black holes, and they are both pretty difficult to see.
But then, I discount my own ideas as well, as it is difficult to believe that I would have thought of something that the "professional" astrophysicists hadn't thought of, and it seems rather arrogant to suggest that I did.
They didn't provide evidence that ALL women find larger penises more attractive. They found evidence that a small group of Australian women do. I believe these are the same women that are statistically most likely to sleep with a bloke on the first date, too. Perhaps the results would be different with a more prudish sample group.
I'll admit that the results of this study likely actually DO apply to Paris Hilton...
Could work in some situations
One of the windiest spots in the US, the Columbia Gorge, also happens to have a hydroelectric dam in the middle of it. Wind would make an excellent supplement to hydro if used to pump water from downstream back to up above the hydroelectric dam. Wind in conjunction with gas or coal fired plants doesn't help that much, because it does nothing to reduce the required peak capacity of the fossil fueled generators.
Add HIV to the list of diseases that can be transmitted via breast milk. Of course, since human breast milk is quite expensive and hard to come by, I suspect this ice cream shop is simply lying about one of the main ingredients used...
Would you consume anything that came out of Paris's nipples?
"I think about my wife..."
If you're thinking about your wife when you get off, you might as well be doing it with your wife? Don't most men wank precisely because they DON'T want to think about their wife while getting off? Sure, he's just trying to preserve his marriage, bit I'd say run, don't walk, away from this lying wanker.
Air Freighting dogs
Dogs shipped via airlines do get special handling, but cost $400 to $500. There was a case recently where someone shipped a furless cat in midwinter which contracted hypothermia and died due to the baggage workers taking to long to unload it from the plane. Being put into a cargo hold is a VERY traumatic experience for a pet.
As the owner of a registered vehicle, you can be reasonably expected to know who else was driving it. As the owner of an open wireless router, you have no way of knowing who else might be using it. I'm not sure it's ever been tested in court, but I believe the "I had an open wireless connection and I have no idea who downloaded that porn" is a valid affirmative defense.
Check you assumptions
Jared Loughner smoked a lot of dope. I'm not sure the amount of deaths indirectly attributed to marijuana use can be assumed to be exactly zero. I also have personal experience from riding with stoned drivers that it makes them worse drivers while simultaneously convincing them that they are driving really well -- but then I suspect alcohol does that as well.
Tempest in a teapot
Marijuana is worse for you per weight of substance smoked. In evaluating the health risks, it is generally assumed that pot smokers consume only a small fraction of the amount of burning weeds that tobacco smokers consume. If a pot smoker tried to keep up with a fag smoker on a puff-for-puff basis, they'd soon bear a striking resemblance to Ozzy Osborne.
X terminals were poorly conceived
X made the client/server split in the wrong place, requiring all mouse input to go round trip to the server and back before giving feedback to the user. Ever try to draw something with that model on a slow network? Even dumb terminals/thin clients need to be able to perform programmed functionality locally.
If you're going to count AT&T Blit terminals as "Thin Clients", you might as well also include the venerable IBM 3270 terminals in that category as well.
Users want to surf the web for porn without malicious software getting onto their machine. Windows can't handle that requirement because it is susceptible to attack, and IOS can't handle because it is controlled by a control freak who doesn't want his perfect product sullied by the availability of porn. That leaves google which may be able to deliver what users want. Whether or not they will be successful remains to be seen, but I think they have had a good track record in implementing new technologies so far (although Android has matured too slowly for my tastes.)
Proof that half the "user base" are complete idiots
"52 per cent of the total base really wanted a tablet running a Microsoft OS"
Microsoft OSes, and the applications that run on them, are designed for a WIMP (Window, Icon, Menu, Pointing device) interface. They are virtually impossible to use on a touchscreen device without a keyboard. So half the users don't get the fact that all their favorite apps are going to have to have the user interface completely redesigned anyway, thus there is zero benefit to their tablet running Windows!
My daughter got her pencil confiscated from her by her school bus driver when she was trying to do homework on the bus because "she might hurt someone with it". Later, the boy she was forced to sit next to was threatening to stab her with a nail-clipper, and the bus driver didn't care. Of course, the boys who were threatening her were white and she is black, but that doesn't mean there were any different standards of conduct depending on race...
What makes you think they trusted them before? What alternative do they have? Homeschooling is only an option if one or more parents don't work for a living, and private schools cost a minimum of $10,000 per year in the states. If you don't send your kid to school, you go to jail. We never trusted them to begin with, but we simply have no choice but to continue to allow them to mistreat our children.
That's how the US school system works: as long as you claim you're not a perv, you're allowed to do anything you want. It is only if you admit that you like looking at pictures of teens in various states of undress that you get into trouble. No, really, in any case of an accusation of inappropriate conduct by a school employee they simply take the employee's word for it that they did nothing wrong.
