Re: I'd offer the world an apology for the garbage that is "American First"

And you expected to get that by electing Killary?

The Clintons have been pandering to corporate america for 30 years.

And please refrain from apologizing on my behalf. Its about time that we in America stopped trying to

kiss the worlds butt in the HOPES that they would like us for it. All they do is see it as a weakness to exploit. And the Democrats are imploding first, so I don't see what your problem is.

Ummm... Why?

Whatever he said would be disparaged anyway.

Might as well say what he means.

Bionym bracelet promises to replace passwords with ECG biometrics

Re: Exercise

It looks at waveform SHAPE, not rate. And if you have a heart attack, the device (if your using the right software) will be able to inform you of subtle changes in your EKG, before it gets to that. Not to mention, it could call the doctor for you if it sees classic signs of heart attack behavior.

Re: Exercise

Which is more practical. Guessing a password from miles away, or sneaking in to someones house at just the right time to steal their password bracelet.

The Realities of Emissions VS MPG

I work at an aerospace company in the US and we are currently developing a vehicle that uses the Vauxhall 2.0L Diesel engine because it is the most advanced design available. It develops 200HP and gets upwards of 40MPG. We have a Vauxhall vectra in the yard that we use as a test bed and GUESS WHAT. We CAN'T GET IT LICENSED in the US. It doesn't meet the emissions standards so we aren't allowed to DRIVE IT. So all of you who wonder why we don't have as good a selection of cars here as EU. Its because Emissions vs MPG cancel each other OUT. Everyone wants their cake and eat it too. If Obama wants to ween the US off of foreign oil, he would LOWER the emission standards to allow better MPG. Sorry, you can't change the laws of physics, you can have one or the other, but not both.
