And this is why you should just hang up or walk away when a non-scientist asks you for your opinion on something scientific. It's basically what we're told where I work: let the PR people handle that.

Just a follow up from the other thread.

They are NOT being prosecuted for failing to predict a quake. That is just bad journalism.

I'm amused that I apparently can't pay off (the exact amount of) my student loan because it's less than $1.00.

Reason it's less than $1.00 is because interest was calculated after I sent in the payment... so I'm now sitting at $0.62 owed.

Edit: And... I also apparently can't pay $1.00 because:
The payment amount for a billing group cannot exceed the 4 day payoff amount of 0.62

So, Apple decided to announce a new, fourth generation iPad. Seven months after the third generation was released, and less than a week after my company ordered several hundred iPad 3's.

And apparently the lead developer for locks got fired for telling the others where to shove it during one of their meetings.

Apparently it's for telling players where Blizzard could shove it.

Note he mentions he felt powerless and decided to go public with it.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Just got cancer from reading a Ret thread on MMO champion with what people wanted for 5.1. Ideally I'd like some of my damage moved from my cooldown phase to my standard rotation but I'm not sure how to go about that, but apparently the consensus over there is that ret needs 20% buffs across the board and Inquisition unlinked from HoPo. Also assorted other stupid shit.

Interesting reading around there. Seems like he was pretty close to the Warlock community and had been pushing for things that the rest of the design team disagreed with (specifically related to the design of Cataclysm (the new lock spell) and strength of Chaos Bolt), and finally got too frustrated with it.

And it makes sense to be frustrated if that is the case. I mean, if you were in charge of designing the ford focus, but the guy in charge of designing the ford f150 overrides what you do with the design you are in charge of, you would be pissed off as well
