Holy smokes were you right! The comments section where Gene responds to things is hilarious. It reads like butt-hurt and frustration.

FCC Votes To Consider Next Round of 'Net Neutrality' Rules

AioKits Re:The fast lanes: a parable (182 comments)

The next month there are two toll lanes and a muddy ditch in each direction.

I wish people would stop bringing Oklahoma into these things...

Earthquake Warning Issued For Central Oklahoma

AioKits Re:Tornadoes, fundy xtians, and Tom Coburn. (127 comments)

Don't worry, we're prepared. Since we took a huge dump on our roads/highways funding, the potholes are now large enough that if you see a tornado that you should swerve your car into one and it should just pass you right by.

In a Hole, Golf Courses Experiment With 15-inch Holes

AioKits Re:...news for nerds.. (405 comments)

Wow, something even more boring and pointless than golf, I forgot all about fishing...

Except with fishing, at least you get to eat when you win.

I propose we put forward this rule in golf as well, you get to eat when you win.

Ex-Head of Troubled Health Insurance Site May Sue, Citing 'Cover-Up'

AioKits Re:ObamaCare is a Horrific Debacle (162 comments)

What I find humorous about the current topic and the posts being flung onto the wall like so much feces is that posts like yours good sir, whether I agree or not, add to the discussion and yet are being modded flamebait for no real apparent reason. After this modding, posts such as yours usually have a small flood of ACs follow your commentary with short, witless posts which quite frankly add nothing to the discourse. I'm all for being an AC from time to time, as it serves a purpose. However, at the moment, it feels like it is being abused by one or a few select individuals whose goals seem to be to misrepresent the dialog being built under this topic and burying that which they do not agree with.

Now, mind you my post is off-topic and I will expect it will be modded as such, as the flood of AC seems to be cresting quite the large wave as of late. This AC behavior has been growing as of late, and seems most apparent on politically charged topics. I only hope this pattern is temporary and just wished to say, bravo for having the balls to attach your name to your beliefs.

Tim Cook: If You Don't Like Our Energy Policies, Don't Buy Apple Stock

AioKits Re:so let me get this straight (348 comments)

One more reason that I wont ever buy another apple product

Tim Cook telling these right-wing psychopaths to piss off is surely a reason to avoid buying Apple products. What kind of bullshit is this? Extremist climate change deniers turning up in the Apple shareholder meeting, and trying to foist their idiotic "profit above anything" agenda on Apple, getting the response they deserve (actually, not _quite_ what they deserve, corporal punishment is what they deserve), and that makes you want to avoid Apple products?

Honestly, his response has made me consider Apple now that I am looking for a replacement for my current aging MP3 player. (It's going on 5 years now and is starting to act funky)

In other news, colony collapse disorder... caused by glue.

Then we need to start a campaign to inform young bees about the dangers of sniffing glue.

Satanists Propose Monument At Oklahoma State Capitol Next To Ten Commandments

AioKits So... Any religious monument? (1251 comments)

As a Tulsa, Oklahoma resident, this fills me with so much pride. Now to raise the money for a monument to Fenrir! Maybe a Ledberg stone replica? Anyone else up for it?

Obama Asks FCC To Make Carriers Unlock All Mobile Devices

AioKits Re:Promised fulfilled (378 comments)

How so? I don't believe they charge interest on the loan. It just counts as an 'Equipment Installment' until you pay off the cost of the device as it was at the time you received it.

New Keyboard Accessory Shocks Users When They Try To Go On Facebook

AioKits Re:I made one too! (125 comments)

It shocks me whenever I waste time on Slashdaaarrrrgh

What?

"It shocks me whenever I waste time on Slashdaaarrrrgh."

What is that?

He must have died while carving it.

-Come on!
-That's what it says.

Look, if he was dying,
he wouldn't bother to carve "Slashdaaarrrrgh."

-He'd just say it.
-That's what's carved in the rock.

-Perhaps he was dictating it.
-Shut up!

-Does it say anything else?
-No!

Just "Slashdaaarrrrgh."


Slashdaaarrrrgh.

Do you suppose he meant the Camargue?

-Where's that?
-ln France, I think.

-lsn't there a St. Slashdaaarrrrgh's in Cornwall?
-No, that's St. Ives.

St. Ives.

No, "Slashdaaarrrrgh." At the back of the throat.

No, in surprise and alarm!

-You mean a sort of a "Ah!"
-Yes, that's right.

My God!

It's the Legendary Black Beast of Slashdaaarrrrgh!

EFF Wins Release of Secret Court Opinion: NSA Surveillance Unconstitutional

AioKits Re:From TFA (524 comments)

It was my understanding via the 10th Amendment that the US Constitution was explicitly granting, not limiting, the powers of the government.

EFF Wins Release of Secret Court Opinion: NSA Surveillance Unconstitutional

AioKits Re:From TFA (524 comments)

Mr mark-t, what you've just said;... is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul...
