Maps Suggest Marco Polo May Have "Discovered" America

Bill, Shooter of Bul Re: So the Italians win the latest round ... (276 comments)

Oh, there is all kinds of "special" in that post. To call that racisim, is to completly ignore the insanity of that babble and actually take it serious. The guy isn't right in the head.

Senators Threaten To Rescind NFL Antitrust Exemption

Bill, Shooter of Bul Re:I wish McCain would retire (242 comments)

Wait, so you think if they lower the price of tickets to the stadium, they'll get *more* money from tv contracts?

Or did you not follow the thread? Maybe you thought I was suggusting that I knew the precise finacials of all NFL teams, and forsaw that a drop in ticket revenue would send them all into red ink? Because that would be really dumb. They'd make less money than they do today, if they lowered the ticket price. That's what this argument was about. The vast majoirty of teams sell out ever game at current prices. It makes no finacial sense for them to lower the prices. Tickets on Stub Hub go for 2 - 3 times face value.

Senators Threaten To Rescind NFL Antitrust Exemption

Bill, Shooter of Bul Re:I wish McCain would retire (242 comments)

Seriously, it would still be gouging even if they gave you twice the amount of liquid posted. Complaints about the volume are kind of pointless.

Its like the old catskills joke:

Old Lady: The food there was terrible!
Old Man: Yeah! And such small portions!

Bill, Shooter of Bul Re:I wish McCain would retire (242 comments)

if the stadium stays the same price, and they drop prices, they can't sell any more tickets. They will lose money.

Senators Threaten To Rescind NFL Antitrust Exemption

Bill, Shooter of Bul Re:Could they get any more special treatment? (242 comments)

Possibly. When teams come close to not selling out, large companies like local tv stations that carry the games will buy up tickets and give them away to underprivileged children. If the game sells out, they can air the game and sell ads. If it doesn't, they can't.

Facebook Apologizes To Drag Queens Over "Real Name" Rule

Bill, Shooter of Bul Re:Reverse discrimination is still discrimination (280 comments)

Sure it is. Not buying Team A's apparel, and always buying Team B's is discrimination.

Also, have you followed politics lately? People self identify with the "team" regardless of the actual policies. Just like you might always like Team B, regardless of the players or tactics used.

Facebook Apologizes To Drag Queens Over "Real Name" Rule

Bill, Shooter of Bul Re:Reverse discrimination is still discrimination (280 comments)

Some forms are illegal. Some are not.

There is nothing prohibiting this:

Bus driver: "Everyone must sit on the back"

Guy wearing RedHot Chili Peppers shirt:"Then why is the guy with a phish shirt sitting in the front?"

Bus driver: "We simply don't enforce it on phish heads."

  Or this

Bus driver: "Everyone must sit on the back"

Young healthy guy:"Then why is the old woman with a broken leg sitting in the front?"

Bus driver: "We simply don't enforce it on old women with broken legs"

Grooveshark Found Guilty of Massive Copyright Infringement

Bill, Shooter of Bul Re:Funny, however.. (171 comments)

I think you missed my point entirely. At some point, artists need to be fairly compensated for their work. Just giving them "exposure" doesn't pay their rent. For many artists, the "exposure" of piracy costs them more than it gives them in any revenue stream.

I also find it pretty darn funny that you're using the example of 1 artist that sold 5 cds based off of youtube.

No one's a scapegoat in the situation, everyone's to blame. History can not be ignored in this case.

Bill, Shooter of Bul Re:Reverse discrimination is still discrimination (280 comments)

Because Its facebook's system, they can decide and enforce their rules as they see fit. Discrimination is a fact of life, and a good thing in many cases [Facebook discriminates against those under the age of 13! The Horror!!]. Weather or not you like a particular discrimination, is your viewpoint.

Well, then why the hell do they sell their cds and the shows? Why don't they give them away? Or better yet, pay people to take them. then they'd have all the exposure in the world!

Speak for yourselves. The Indie bands I know, need to make rent, and are kind of ticked off at people who think that they should be able to listen to their music without compensating the band.

Former GM Product Czar: Tesla a "Fringe Brand"

Former GM Product Czar: Tesla a "Fringe Brand"

Bill, Shooter of Bul Re:Yeah ... but ... it's true. (267 comments)

Chevy sells approx 2,000 volts per month or 24,000 a year. Compare that to the much more expensive Model S selling 40,000.

Yeah overall, they are being traded as a growth stock, but look at those numbers. Can you imagine how much they would sell with a car the same price as the volt?

Facebook/twitter icons

One of the worst things they've done to this site. I have *Friends* on facebook. I don't want them to know how much of a nerd I am. Furthermore, the slashdot stories aren't stories,they're summaries about stories. If I was going to post something about the topic to facebook, i would just link the source.

Negitive feedback

Bill, Shooter of Bul Bill, Shooter of Bul writes  |  more than 6 years ago

I've gotten a couple posts questioning the validity of my attempted humor. Some people really don't think I'm that funny. It only takes three different mods to hit +5 funny, and I myself have seen a few other people have posted that aren't that funny. In any case, I am my own worst critic. Several ones I've posted I didn't think deserve any attention at all. So, in the future, I'll try and limit myself even further, to truly post only what is really funny, rather than some things that I think might be funny.

For those who are annoyed with my sense of humor, just be glad I was filtering out a good 80% of what I thought to post. You're seeing what I consider to be the top 20% of my humor. I'll try and tighten that down to at least 10%.

Still confused about Freaks.

Bill, Shooter of Bul Bill, Shooter of Bul writes  |  about 10 years ago I realise that every journal I've ver written is about freaks. Sorry, but I'm fasinated by them. Recently, I got two more. I'm just curious why anyone marks anyone as a freak. Anyone know? Any of my new freaks care to elaborate as to why they decided I was a Foe? I try to restrain myself from flaiming or posting anything too ofensive. If there is something I really feal strongly about that might offend someone I'll post it anyway, but I'll try to do so as clearly and logically as possible. I understand that everyone might not understand or agree with them, but I would think that they would respect the opinion and the manner it was presented in. Or do people just use Foes to demark those they disagree with? I understand using it for Trolls or those truely offensive, but why use it to censor those you disagree with? Are they so sure of themselves that they could never be wrong on an issue? Or are they afraid that they will read a well reasoned argument that makes them change their mind? Let me know, will you.
