Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

Lions eat 'rhino poachers' on South African game reserve



Quote

Sibuya reserve owner Nick Fox said in a statement on the reserve's Facebook page that the suspected poachers entered the reserve late on Sunday night or early on Monday morning.
"They strayed into a pride of lions - it's a big pride so they didn't have too much time," Mr Fox told AFP news agency.
"We're not sure how many there were - there's not much left of them."

Now that is a fine example of karma in action. :rolleyes:

You probably have to have a US IP to read it.
I've converted the article to rtf but apparently I can't attach anything here. <sigh>

I've uploaded it to google drive.

Nowt to apologise for. All resolved with help from good folk. It was a very interesting read. Sensors buried a mile deep in ice picking up details of objects so small. Sounds like a si-fi movie plot. :228823:

As far as I'm concerned, most of particle physics sounds like a fantasy story (i.e., there are six types quarks, known as flavors: up, down, strange, charm, bottom, and top), but it's fascinating if you can get a writer who can make it somewhat understandable.

A.I. Can Track Humans Through Walls With Just a Wifi Signal

Quote

The Machines now have X-ray vision. A new piece of software has been trained to use wifi signals — which pass through walls, but bounce off living tissue — to monitor the movements, breathing, and heartbeats of humans on the other side of those walls. The researchers say this new tech’s promise lies in areas like remote healthcare, particularly elder care, but it’s hard to ignore slightly more dystopian applications.

This is not really in the right  place as I thought the article was funny. I think it is interesting that there are articles dealing with the cat pest issue but non concerning dogs. :Laughing:
