Since /. refuses to show IPs of AC's and/or react to these trolls, if they really bother you, the only person to blame is yourself. Find a site where people care.

Are slashdot mod points just worth nothing nowadays? Someone actually wasted a modpoint on modding the parent funny? i mean, wtf!?

Yes. Unfortunately now people think 'offtopic' means 'funny' and 'funny' means 'redundant', 'obvious', or 'didn't get the joke the first time, so repeated it'.

What's truly frightening to me about this is not even your "joke".

I mean, I would expect some cutesy pun like "sig fault" in a /. signature - but not actually typed out at the end of a post! It's pathetic even for someone who signs their posts on the web at all...

well Exxon mobile cleared enough profit last year alone to buy yahoo in cash, where as MSFT will have to resort to 50% cash and 50% stock.

you do the math.

Like stars, Yahoo is way overpriced. Buying with stock makes sense, if you are a company like Microsoft and able to turn Yahoo into something. If Exxon bought Yahoo with cash, it would take quite some time to realize a return on investment, about as much time as it takes to generate ROI on money paid for a star, from the star itself. BTW, if anyone wants to pay someone for a star, I'll take the deposit.

Re:Questions? (1)

peragrin (659227) | more than 6 years ago | (#22369328)

actually MSFT will never achieve a ROI on yahoo. MSFT is a directionless company with a handful of good products looking for anything to help them compete. yahoo is a directionless company with a handful of good products trying to figure out how to compete.

The two merged would be worse than AOL time warner. It just won't work. the neither side has anything of major value that the other side can't have now.

Sure you can name a few yahoo offerings but in the end there is really nothing new for either side.

Re:Questions? (1)

TurinPT (1226568) | more than 6 years ago | (#22357752)

It costs around $20 to name a star btw.

Re:Questions? (2, Informative)

glitch23 (557124) | more than 6 years ago | (#22357776)

Naming a star and owning a star are 2 different things, especially if you don't care if your star has hundreds of other names by other people. This is because star registries are not offical astronomical registries and each registry is independently owned and operated. Basically the registries are a gimmick and that's why it's so cheap. Owning a star...well, as far as I know I don't believe that is possible given the International Space Treaty.

Re:Questions? (1)

icebones (707368) | more than 6 years ago | (#22358118)

The treaty prevents governments from claiming ownership, not people or corporations.

Re:Questions? (1)

meringuoid (568297) | more than 6 years ago | (#22358940)

The treaty prevents governments from claiming ownership, not people or corporations.

Which is the line that guy selling land on the moon peddles. It won't stick either. It's stretching plausibility to claim, and sell, land you have never even visited and in fact are not capable of visiting. Traditionally you have to at least plant a flag - and normally, you have to live on the land a while and prove you can sustain your colony before anyone will recognise your claim. That, and have enough guns to argue your case the hard way if necessary.

Re:Questions? (1)

glitch23 (557124) | more than 6 years ago | (#22361854)

The treaty prevents governments from claiming ownership, not people or corporations.

That's right. I forgot what the exact wording was of the Treaty. Of course, just because you have a piece of paper that says you own something doesn't mean squat unless others honor it. Supposedly Congress has backed the guy that sells "land" on the Moon but that is still different than 1 person owning the entire Moon. When it comes to our gaseous neighbors I have to wonder how you can sell land though. Of course the same problem comes with buying up stellar land since there is no rock. I guess if you can convince someone or a group of people (that matter) that your ownership of a celestial object is legally binding then you are golden, otherwise I hope you have a lot of money because you would have just wasted some of it in buying the celestial object.

SlashWombat (1227578) | more than 6 years ago | (#22357490)

Well, its an unusual star. The article says its low on Lithium, so its probably just been skipping its schizophrenia medication.

Re:Questions? (5, Funny)

smurgy (1126401) | more than 6 years ago | (#22357762)

Given that it was hungry enough to eat a whole other star I'd say it was not only low on Lithium, it was high on weed and seriously munching.

DNS-and-BIND (461968) | more than 6 years ago | (#22358268)

Yes, because Slashdot is such a haven for news about vapid celebrities and the people whose empty lives consists of following the latest celebrity gossip.

I can't even tell if I'm being sarcastic anymore.

Re:Oh, like "in the sky" star not "Hollywood" star (2, Insightful)

Nyeerrmm (940927) | more than 6 years ago | (#22358448)

To be fair, I think Kevin James being a cannibal would be interesting news, no matter what I normally think of celebrity news.
