White House: Use Metric If You Want, We Don't Care

Anonymatt Re: Start here (1145 comments)

It's only mathematically simpler.

Metric is obviously just another of the liberal's scams to make us more like Europe!

So You've Always Wanted a Hovercraft... (Video)

Anonymatt Re:Looks fancy and all, but... (66 comments)

You mentioned hovercraft combat.

One time I was being chased by this maniac in a hovercraft. He even ran me over on the beach. I got some sand in my mouth, but I was unharmed. He chased me all through town. Eventually I grabbed a sword from an antiques shop and commandeered a Lamborghini. Playing chicken with the hovercraft, I swerved at the last moment and was able to slice up its tender bits. So hovercrafts are quite vulnerable to swords. I still was pretty lucky though.

Wired Writer Imagines Google Island

I'm not saying you're wrong, lost soul, but it just sounds like you're extrapolating from Electric Kool-aid Acid Test.

Wired Writer Imagines Google Island

Anonymatt Re:Utopian playland (150 comments)

Uh, I thought the end of Manna was unnerving.

Basically the character submits to a control system that he has no reason to trust except for that his tour guide is an easy lay. He is able to opt out of this system, but he is still walking around with a kill switch in his neck.

I don't know if that's the feeling Marshall intended. The first half with it being a cautionary tale of citizens ending up as wards of a robo-state seems to make enough sense (he makes it seem dystopian), but having this crime-free control system at the end (he makes it seems utopian) just seems irrelevant beyond the scope of a story about complete industrial automation.

Rice Professor Predicts Humans Out of Work In 30 Years

Anonymatt Re:Professor Moron! (808 comments)

Steve Jobs is dead of cancer. Bill Gates can't buy an iPhone 6. Louis XIV died of gangrene, despite having some gold furniture.

Wageslaves in America tend to waste their non-wageslave hours watching Game of Thrones.

Eat right and try to spend as much time as possible in Flow.

Why We Should Build a Supercomputer Replica of the Human Brain

Anonymatt Re:how many types of neurons? (393 comments)

"Several centuries" is just a pinch less stupid than saying it'll happen next year. Nothing to do with my outlook on this technology.

Wolfram Alpha Drills Deep Into Facebook Data

Anonymatt Re:Politics or Video Games. (70 comments)

Yeah, though I'm all for gay marriage, I'm also like "You guys used to be practically illegal and now you want to be put on the official list of gays?" I know that people publicly proclaiming their rights is an important step for ending persecution for all time, but obviously others are much more optimistic and less cynical than me. (This is also a funny idea to bring up at parties or on the Internet.) And it's way off topic.

Wolfram Alpha Drills Deep Into Facebook Data

Anonymatt Politics or Video Games. (70 comments)

I don't know what's dumber to post about, politics or games.

Games are at least fun for its own sake?

All my liberal friends here in NYC don't have to interact with conservatives IRL, but conservative schoolmates and family from back in Iowa are their major gripe about Facebook.

I guess that's half the reason I stopped Facebook, political cheerleading.
