Virtual Reality Experiment Wants To Put White People In Black Bodies

Bartles Stop it with this crap. (447 comments)

I know millennials think they are the first generation that is morally superior and have the answers to everything. But I was playing Mike Tyson's Punch out when your parents were still wearing Zooba's. Not everyone is the racist. People don't need this shit. Go out and do something productive and beneficial to society.

US Navy Authorizes Use of Laser In Combat

Bartles Re:in other news... (225 comments)

Honestly, I'm surprised the laser itself doesn't have issues with its own optics in that sort of environment. One tiny spec of dust on the lens would be disastrous.

Not really a problem. The laser isn't focused at the objective, and the 30kw of light energy flowing through the objective tend to keep it pretty clean.

Material Possiblities: A Flying Drone Built From Fungus

Bartles Re:sounds familiar (52 comments)

People have been making small, unmanned vehicles out of light yet strong biological materials for a hundred years. This is the stupidest article I have ever seen on Slashdot.

Mathematicians Study Effects of Gerrymandering On 2012 Election

Bartles Re:What about switching to a proportional system? (413 comments)

The house is the only body of congress that was intended to be proportional. Originally Senators were supposed to be appointed by State Legislatures, but the 17th amendment changed that. In my opinion not for the better, as States now have no Federal representation. If you want to make the Senate proportional, why even have a Senate as you have just turned it into another House of Representatives?

Bartles Re: How is that startling? (413 comments)

Do you actually live on the planet Earth? How has the NYT done with NSA stories since Barack Obama became President?

Shale: Good For Gas, Oil...and Nuclear Waste Disposal?

Bartles Re: But will it hold? (138 comments)

If the nuclear industry was so large and so powerful, they wouldn't have so much trouble securing permits and finding locations for waste disposal.

That's because you listen to the media. You only hear and believe one side of the story.

Bartles Re:How is that startling? (413 comments)

Haha, so is Harvard. And you think being private, that somehow makes it biased towards Republicans? You idiot.

Holy shit. You are deliberately obtuse, Colonel Klink.

And of course only places like the Washington Times would report it. The Major national papers are just a unofficial wing of the Democratic party and wothey sork to suppress embarrassing things like this.

Bartles Re:How is that startling? (413 comments)

Would you count Tom Steyer and George Soros in that crowd or do you only have a problem with people that help to get Republicans elected? Who is really being obtuse here?

Mathematicians Study Effects of Gerrymandering On 2012 Election

Bartles Re:What about switching to a proportional system? (413 comments)

The voting system isn't set by the Constitution, the electoral system is. The voting system used to determine electoral votes is entirely left up to the States.

Mathematicians Study Effects of Gerrymandering On 2012 Election

Bartles Re:How is that startling? (413 comments)

Are you familiar with something called the Secretary of State Project? No, it wasn't created by Republicans. And seriously, how does gerrymandering affect Senate and gubernatorial races?

Bartles Re:How is that startling? (413 comments)

Why didn't Democrats show up to vote? Low turnout always causes someone to lose an election. Duh. That's pretty much the stupidest theory on election results I've heard.

Clearly the lesson is that if you like income inequality, vote Democrat and choose to live in a place governed by Democrats.

Republicans Block Latest Attempt At Curbing NSA Power

Bartles Re:So basically (445 comments)

I don't know why you would think that. That's a pretty irrational argument actually. And quite silly.

Republicans Block Latest Attempt At Curbing NSA Power

Bartles Re:How did your senator vote? (445 comments)

Not if he were to use his newly discovered executive authority to stop it. It's all being perpetrated by agencies he controls. None of the previous presidents have the power to stop it. Only he does. I take it you voted for him twice. It's your fault.
