So Much Sh*t ..... So Little Time

Princeton researchers show how to steal an election with Diebold machines

More nihilism from nobodies. Nobodies with nothing to do. Nothing except show their contempt for democracy. Their hatred for Bush. I giss if a Repub wins any election between now and the end of time, he stole it .... with a rigged machine.


Princeton security researchers Ariel J. Feldman, J. Alex Halderman, and Edward W. Felten have taken apart one of Diebold's notorious voting machines and done a thorough security analysis of its workings. They showed that they could easily install software on the machine that would allow an attacker to steal votes from one candidate and give them to another -- they showed that this would be undetectable, and easily done. They've published a paper and an amazing, disturbing video showing how this could be done.

Memes replace issues. Replacing thought whole.

Muslim nations considering tourism push

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Muslim countries are considering a global campaign to boost tourism by 2010, Malaysia's national news agency reported.

"Tourists from other countries should be encouraged to visit Muslim countries so that they will get to know Islamic countries better," Malaysian Tourism Minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor was quoted as saying late Wednesday during a visit to Moscow.

The member states are now considering a proposal by Malaysia to make 2010 "Travel the World of Islam Year."

Ummmm ... good luck with that. I don't know, maybe a Muzzy amusement park? Say like Disneyland, but different. Instead of the Main St. Electrical Parade, they could have hangings in front of Cinderella's Castle, for unchaste behavior. Instead of the magic shop there in the castle, a clinic for clitorectomies. With a sign/pass under barrier, posted at entrance. "You must be under five feet tall to enter."

Hizbollah guilty of war crimes, Amnesty says

LONDON (Reuters) - Lebanese guerrilla group Hizbollah committed war crimes in its conflict with
Israel by targeting civilians with rockets packed with metal ball bearings, rights group Amnesty International said on Thursday.

It said around a quarter of the nearly 4,000 rockets that Hizbollah launched into Israel during the 34-day war were fired directly into urban areas.

"The scale of Hizbollah's attacks on Israeli cities, towns and villages, the indiscriminate nature of the weapons used and statements from the leadership confirming their intent to target civilians make it all too clear that Hizbollah violated the laws of war," Amnesty's Secretary-General Irene Khan said.

Does anyone give a flying foog at a doughnut what Amnesty says?

"The fact that Israel has also committed serious violations in no way justifies violations by Hizbollah," she said in a statement.

Glad we cleared that up, Irene. Run along now and play with all the other moral equivalenciers.

I'm Rich

Alcohol use helps boost income: study

WASHINGTON (AFP) - People who consume alcohol earn significantly more at their jobs than non-drinkers, according to a US study that highlighted "social capital" gained from drinking.

The study published in the Journal of Labor Research Thursday concluded that drinkers earn 10 to 14 percent more than teetotalers, and that men who drink socially bring home an additional seven percent in pay.

"Social drinking builds social capital," said Edward Stringham, an economics professor at San Jose State University and co-author of the study with fellow researcher Bethany Peters.

Might go some ways in explaining why some Muslim societies/countries are more an a few centuries behind the rest of civilization. Social bankruptcy.

12:30 p.m.

Doing a little scratching around, we see that the post itself , can be seen embedded in a past link. (Scroll down one third to: Thursday, February 23, 2006 .... National Burn the Koran Day, July 4, 2006). But all inbound hyperlinks to the post itself, are dead. Even clicking on the 8:37 a.m. timestamp, in the body of the post, same. Those Google folk would fit right in with the Taliban.

Since their inception, they have been controversial, because both the technologists and the general public realized that they were losing direct control over an important part of the voting process: counting the votes.
