Ultimately, the only way to truly stay anonymous online is to never go online in the first place. If you’ve already used the internet, delete any and all accounts you’ve ever created, turn your computer off and smash it to pieces. You will still leave a digital footprint of some sort in your wake, but hopefully it’s not particularly significant. If you’re using this extreme method, you should also smash up your smart phone, your tablet and your smart TV (they’re listening to us now). Now that you have purged all connected technology from your life, you may wish to live in self-imposed exile, perhaps in a cave, so that you are not tempted to re-enter the online world. Don’t tell anyone about this and you will successfully have acquired complete anonymity. Probably.

This should be interesting to watch:

Big Bang theory could be debunked by Large Hadron Collider

Scientists at Cern could prove the controversial theory of ‘rainbow gravity’ which suggests that the universe stretches back into time infinitely, with no Big Bang

The theory of Rainbow Gravity may prove that the Big Bang could not have happened

The detection of miniature black holes by the Large Hadron Collider could prove the existence of parallel universes and show that the Big Bang did not happen, scientists believe.

The particle accelerator, which will be restarted this week, has already found the Higgs boson – the God Particle – which is thought to give mass to other particles.

Now scientists at Cern in Switzerland believe they might find miniature black holes which would reveal the existence of a parallel universe.

And if the holes are found at a certain energy, it could prove the controversial theory of ‘rainbow gravity’ which suggests that the universe stretches back into time infinitely with no singular point where it started, and no Big Bang.

More at the link. (via)

I think one of the things that I truly love about science, is that it constantly changes our understanding of the universe, and disproves past theories, and illustrates a new reality, and I really love being a smug ****ing skeptic and laughing while I see the religio-political science worshippers' beliefs destroyed in a flash. I do get enormous joy out of that. (I'm kind of conflicted that I'm such a sadist at times. tongue ) The pisser is that it takes people a very long time to catch up with the evidence and what new bits of reality science has actually shown to us. But, that just drags out my laughter as well, so - take the good with the bad. tongue Cool

@tomos:

Schadenfreude...you sound a bit like a grammar n*z*, just now. Then again, when someone does do some 'Schaden' to a word, I have a hard time believing that a grammar n*z* gets much 'freude' from correcting it  tongue

But if God did create the universe, it will never happen. If science ever goes against you, you would have a real bummer.

I'm gonna single out this one to echo because to me it's far beyond "just interesting stuff" and smack in the middle of the desktop-mobile wars.

Not the least being that we're on DC, we're either software creators or software appreciators.

In contrast, strange "new culture" themes keep emerging in the "app-world" that disturb me. Besides the lockin platform stuff, just the actual software design, tons of apps seem to have "good pixel placement", someone set a bar high for that, but the actual feature sets seem to be often really sloppy.
