Google Considered Too Big To Fail
Your post is an oasis of rationality in a wasteland of "OBAMA'S COMMUNISM MIND RAYS CAUSED THE GREAT DEPRESSION". I only wish I could both tell you and mod you up.
India Suspended From PayPal For "At Least a Few Months"
I could not help myself but read your comment in the "Brawndo" advertisement style.
FOREIGN CAPITAL - except the capital is 300 FEET TALL AND COVERED IN CHAINSAWS
Supreme Court Rolls Back Corporate Campaign Spending Limits
Fascism's single greatest achievement is convincing the world it doesn't actually exist. Hell, that's basically the entire game plan once fascism is installed - deny the people the chance to ever publicly acknowledge their situation, quashing dissent and revolution before they can even begin.
Who CARES if it's not a textbook Mussolini-style fascist state yet?
Analysis of 32 Million Breached Passwords
How is this insightful? It could apply to literally ANY login and/or password system. Managers have powers over the things they manage? Really? I hadn't the faintest!
Futuristic Sex Robots Now Just "Sex Robots"
This is Slashdot. How could you NOT bring up the possibility of a Beowulf clusterfuck, you insensitive clod?
The Definitive Evisceration of The Phantom Menace *NSFW*

Revisiting the "Holy Trinity" of MMORPG Classes
So, if I understand the crux of your argument, mmorpgs are ludicrous because they don't reflect accurately the life of a typical middle age soldier.
Let's run down that checklist
-Enslaved (serfdom) to your liege

-Underequipped (only the liege`s knights get any armor at all
Gee, that sure sounds like the life I'd want to play in MY fantasy! Your arguments, while true, are completly irrelevant because nobody plays a fantasy game for realism. This is not a **** re-enactement of Ye Olde Dragone Slayinge.
Israeli Border Police Shoot US Student's Laptop
I don't know, I think a bag of shot dvds is not as bad as a shot laptop.
Extended Warranty Purchases Up 10% This Year
Your analogies brighten my day like an unexpected second pizza.
The Science Credibility Bubble
Yes, if all it takes to mess up the entire global climate for over a year is a single sufficient volcano eruption, what are the odds that 6,000,000,000+ humans working together to belch toxic fumes into the air every single day could have any impact whatsoever. Ridiculous.
You are either a troll or hilariously obtuse.
US Congressman Announces Plans To Probe Wikileaks
It went away with "Why are you snooping on me if you don't believe I've committed a crime?"
Sci-Fi Shows and Movies Should Stop...
Maybe you blocked it out from your mind (I wouldn't blame you) but they did try make a Starship Troopers, with predictable Hollywood results.
Valve's Newell On Community-Funded Games
Please consider the difference (in order of magnitudes) between Half-Life 2's budget and your game's. Now realize how it would translate in terms of number of people involved in the community financing. The answer to your (possibly rhetorical, my apologies in that case) question should become clear at this point.
German Health Insurance Card CA Loses Secret Key
The best part is it will all be contained in a single, monstrously large word. Ah, german efficience.
DIY 18-ft.-High Robotic Exoskeleton
I like that idea. Maybe each member of the crew should operate a smaller, individual vehicle that can clamp onto the mecha's main structure, acting as its "arms" or "legs" or "head". Perhaps some sort of rallying cry would help synchronize the assembly process, something alongs the line of "VOLTROOOOOOOOOON"
