New Superbug Strain Found In Cows and People

BlackBloq Re:We all know what happens when stories like this (144 comments)

You know this how? What an ill informed opinion. As a grocery manager I can tell you people do know what it is and ask about it all the time. There is raw cheese legal to sell as I do at my store. Sign under it says "This product is made from RAW milk". So it sells more. There is a raw milk 'movement' (think bowels). They have to buy direct from farmers and it's a legal grey area. They seem kinda nuts to me though. Yes they really do know what pasteurization is. A LOT of ppl look for raw juice to keep the enzymes alive and all that. Buy a juicer nimwits!

Activists Destroy Scientific GMO Experiment

BlackBloq Re:Sounds like (1229 comments)

While I completely disagree with this, there is a fear based on reality that the GM crops will be in everything without choice or disclosure.
http://www.naturalnews.co/029168_GMO_foods_labeling.html
Is an example.
All gm products should be clearly labeled on the front of the package. But this would kill the sales.
So people respond with fear and aggression. GMO soy is in alot of shit now adays as soy is in a lot of shit as well.
There is also unhealthy processing...

On Monday, AT&T Customers Enter Era of Broadband Caps

BlackBloq They should remember ... (537 comments)

I pay a lot for my extreme account. If I get capped or torrents blocked I'll just dump my service. While I'm at, it I'll dump my cable service and save like 2k a year at least. With that cash I can buy whatever I wanted to download. Lately no EZTV streams will work for me. Lame cuz it's like PVR'ing because I pay for extended cable service I just never really use it (wifey does). Maybe I will get a PVR and dump internet down to light. Either way the cable company is loosing money from me.

Research Credibility In the Video Game Violence Debate

BlackBloq If they have a Halo suit hand we may see some prob (154 comments)

I saw these kids trying to do UFC style chokes today.
I told them to stop and that chokes are NOT cool. One kid got hurt after ignoring me. Douche bag adult there was doing nothing to stop them.I would say watching UFC lead to them trying chokes (when they say " I didn't tap"). If they have access to a grim reaper minigun then we may be in trouble! If kids can emulate, they will! But to emulate call of duty they would need an arsenal hanging around and some friends to shoot. Good luck with that. If you have that in your house then you have problems.

Court Says California Stores Can't Ask Customers For ZIP Codes

BlackBloq That's ok (461 comments)

Then I wont ship to your house. I can check the billing address with the credit companies to verify if that's the same as the mailing address. That is to say, I can access your zip code from your credit card number to verify that the item is being sent to the same address as the billing address. So I don't need to ask you; I can get your number without you.

An Open Letter To PC Makers: Ditch Bloatware, Now!

BlackBloq Not a new problem (609 comments)

Back in the olden days there was an assumption that if you didn't build your own PC it was a smoldering piece of shit. Some interesting exceptions. There was a ROM version of Dos on my Tandy PC, that thing was so tweeked that it was like its own OS. It booted faster than any operating system to date. It was just on(flick, booted!). 'Just on' will come one day again ... maybe. You couldn't change that version of Dos but you could boot a newer one from floppy but for the apps we used there was no need... you needed to build a real PC for gaming, as cool as Hercules was for its high res; the lack of good sound card support or a feasible hard drive upgrade was the death of the Tandy.

Nothing ever changes, just the details.

Teachers Back Away From Evolution In Class

BlackBloq REally what is the point (947 comments)

Science is doing fine in schools . Read this for counter point.
http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2010/12/kids-study-bees/
You can teach kids that the Easter bunny made the world but when they go to compete in the global science arena they don't bring him along. Why? Because real science just is. Everyone knows the formula for gunpowder, there is no discussion.
    Texas (for example) is an uber conservative christian state . Lets examine this good christian state. You can, buy an assault rifle, fully auto class 3 weapon, electrocute a retard, castrate a pervert (with real castration),Meet up with one of the hundreds of hate groups(most hate groups), Knock up a teen (highest teen preg rate in USA) ETC. What a joke.
PS: I don't think the original poser RTFA where is this 'study'? I see a link to a bunch of retards trying to sue their way into converting a public school to a private christian one.

Nvidia Unveils New Mid-Range GeForce Graphics Card

BlackBloq Re:1920x1080 is considered common these days? (158 comments)

Kinda reminds me how you are full of shit. 44k 16 bit was and is kickass. You would know that if you actually encoded more than fart air from your buttocks. For real. More quality than 44k audio you could not afford buddy; you probably couldn't tell the difference at all. I've used old reel to reel systems and no matter what , you have the quality of the studio and the master as the only important matter. Here is cd vs mp3 http://www.lincomatic.com/mp3/mp3quality.html anyway who gives a fuck.

Lawer in Pirate Bay case faces DDo$

BlackBloq BlackBloq writes  |  more than 5 years ago

BlackBloq (702158) writes "In a spin off of the Pirate bay case, Danowsky's law firm's account at the Nordea bank is being targeted in an attack dubbed DDO$. The plaintiffs' lawyers are being targeted by a site called internetavgift. internetavgift.se is asking that people send 1 Swedish krona (about 13 cents) to the account. Companies (in Sweden) can receive up to 1,000 payments a year for free and then further payments will be charged 1.70 kronor (about 21 cents) each to process. In addition, Danowsky theoretically might end up having to refund every single payment. According to internetavgift.se, Swedish law requires the immediate refund of payments that have been made inaccurately, which each person having sent money can later claim to create pointless work for Danowsky's firm. It's unknown who is behind the so-called DDo$, concept but the domain name internetavgift.se is registered by "svarth3024-00001" possibly linked to Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, one of the four defendants sentenced. http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-10239096-93.html?part=rss&subj=news&tag=2547-1_3-0-20 (original Story on CNet)"
