That won't help you, as the NSA has developed the capability to remote-modify your HDDs/SSDs firmware so even a deep-level sector-level format will still leave you open once you re-install an OS.

Yep.  And there are BIOS rootkits that pwn the hardware, no matter what OS.  Paving the box will stop the NGO hacks, though.

Besides, I need to roll back on internal technical previews somehow.

Luckily, my home is nowhere near here (2km away from the scene). However, the devastation from the fire was horrible

Okay, the full investigation was done, it turns out the fire was caused

when a delinquent teen was enraged to his own parent when he asked his parent for money, which his parent denied his request.

When he threatened his family to burn down the house, he did; he locked the house with his family inside and tried to burn them down. luckily his family was able to escape the raging fire. But the total damage caused was 250~400 house completely wiped out by the fire.

The "bastard" was arrested by he police soon after.

the kid has a history when it comes to drug and rumor has it that he use that money to buy cocaines and stuff.

http://edition.cnn.com/2015/06/07/world/malaysia-kinabalu-quake/

Some of you might or might not know this

Our country, especially my state; Sabah, was hit by an earthquake. 16 people were confirmed dead after they were climbing Mount Kinabalu. Though the shock didn't reach us, since we are at least 300~400km away from the earthquake center.

Now, 2~3 days before, a group of hikers climbed this mountain and went nude... and urinated the area of the mountain. When they are advised not to do that, the hikers were being disrespectful to their own guides by yelling "Go to Hell" and other cursing.

You see,Mount Kinabalu, like Mount Fuji, is a sacred mountain where; according to the folklore, soul of the dead would rise here before ascending to heaven. and the mountain is also guarded by a spirit named "Aki Nabalu"

Another addition, because of this earthquake, our own fellow countrymen; the normal citizen that is, of the Western Malaysia later bombarded us with racial insulting saying that we "should just die" and "underdeveloped apes". Yeah... we were "shattered" by how racist our own neighborhood states is.

Needless to say, that combination of things has pretty much made my week, fast forward to about 1:50 if you just want that bit.

Best paired with the Girls und Panzer soundtrack for maximum hilarity.

Also, can we just take a moment to appreciate that there really is such a thing as a Tank Biathlon.

LOLZ!!!

Not so much time displacement, but it works on a theory I have. I'm guessing all those pretty lights at the poles ain't just pretty lights, but rather it's where the magnetic poles of the planet interact with solar radiation and the resulting reaction is more chemical than stellar. Then I got the idea that what if cosmic radiation wasn't so much "radiation for radiation sake" but was the result of noble gas(like radon) blowoff from stars and galaxies that have come and gone.

So then I went to work designing an impeller mechanism that works like a vessels inboard motor taking in this noble gas, spinning it up in a diametrically opposed magnetic chamber using the Tesla turbine principle to turn it into plasma. The resulting exhaust from the chemical reaction would then propel the vessel forward at speeds necessary to make economically feasible space travel possible. Of course the theory of the design specifically depends on whether Einstein's theories on gravity were true or not. Space itself has to be moving, like air or water, or no propulsion will occur.

Nitpicking time: A law is in some ways on the same level as a theory, and in others (mainly the lack of any explanation for how things work) a law is worse than a theory.

Either way, it's really awesome news, both for science and in general.

Fidel Castro has died at the age of 90.

I haven't seen the comments sections of social media this rabidly polarized since ... well, since the last time I opened an article about Trump or Obama. Oh, was that yesterday?

Yes . yesterday . Fidel Castro has died, which is incredibly sad. The Cuban revolution, however, is perfectly healthy.
CIA tried to assassinate him 300 times, and he is still alive and well until the last minute

Hm. I've heard 300 times, and 600 times. I wonder if anyone really knows...

Seriously, 30 failed attempts would be pretty embarrassing. If the CIA is that inept, why are people so afraid of it?

A tragedy. Their music was wonderful. Their loss was grievous not only for their friends and family but their fans all over the world.

I'm not understanding how they "hacked" U.S election. Did they change votes? Did they erase them? Oh, they exposed the corruption in the DNC!?  This is ridiculous


For the record : I'm a Trump supporter. Although in the US election results had little affect on Vietnam but it is a unique television show, unprecedented and thrilling to the last minute and I was pretty excited about it, just like so many others un-American around the world

I'm most definitely not a Trump supporter (though the campaign WAS entertaining, right up until election night, anyway). And possibly we have very different ideas about political corruption and manipulation. But imposing sanctions is a little like closing the barn door after the horse has gotten out.

I support the Trump because he has blown a new wind into American politics, just as many others un-American around the world We were tired of hearing things from U.S clichés politicians and then war, more wars , currency wars and the stupid policy . In recent years we have seen things get worse and I hope everything will be better when Trump become president , or world war will break out and everything will return to dust. Either way is fine with me . Seriously.

Well. I just got back from the pub, after 20 Beers and 8 shots. So don't mind me

Parallel evolution combined with plenty of shared experience. The politicians might think they're worlds apart, but the soldiers know we're all more alike than we are different.

Note: US Special Ops units, as well as most other countries', are modeled on the granddaddy of them all, the SAS.
