I wouldn't have bothered commenting on this were it not for the final unneeded sentence.

Mosquitoes Beginning To Ignore DEET Repellent

BumbaCLot Re:Umm, yeah (232 comments)

Saying something doesn't make it true. Evolution has no direction, nor plan. Humans aren't 'more' evolved than any other creature. Every species out there is just as evolved as every other species until it is extinct.

Actually the US had a eugenics movement at the same time. Please stop ignoring US history. Research the mental hospitals here. Epileptics were kept in male or female farms as well for indirect birth control.

Not sure what you are looking for on your new machine but I am running MWO on a i5-3570k and a 560Ti and get over 30FPS at 1920x1080. I run a RVN-3L and don't have a problem going 150.2kph and killing everyone.

Atheist Blogger Sentenced To 3 Years in Prison For Insulting Islam

BumbaCLot Re:Is it Islam or something else? (412 comments)

I think this is what he was thinking of. But they don't have a great track when it comes to blasphemy either. I like the comparison that Islam is the teenager of religions and it may be ok in another 4-600 years.

BumbaCLot Who likes integration? (207 comments)

I would potentially buy a new big screen if it had netflix or pandora integrated but would never buy one with a blu-ray, dvd or hard disk. How many of you like bundling failure-prone or potentially outdated devices into your most expensive component?

DNA Testing Proposed For All Felony Arrests In New Mexico

BumbaCLot Re:Already do this in Indiana (155 comments)

That wasn't my whole sentence, just the part of the system where I was DNA tested. That said, a .08 where you become a felon and a .07 where you get told 'be safe'! are about a third of a beer at some people's weight.

How To Use a Real Guitar With Rock Band 3

BumbaCLot More Lies (180 comments)

Why do you keep lying? THERE IS NO REAL PLAYING OF A GUITAR in Power Gig! I bought the game at Best Buy accidentally the day after Christmas. Unlocked all of the songs so my fiancee could play Dave Matthews. Bought a guitar amp and patch cord so I could actually play it. Again, do not listen to this guy.

I do disagree that PowerGig is as bad as the reviews it received. I have played Rock Band and Guitar Hero and using the controller will knock you down a level, but that should be expected. It does motivate me at least to try harder. My fiancee is scared to move to a level she will fail at more times than not and enjoys getting 100% on easier levels.

What 'does it do that it claims' that you believe? Dismissing a review when you have no freaking clue what the gameplay is like makes me dismiss anything you ever say as total bullshit.

How To Use a Real Guitar With Rock Band 3

BumbaCLot Wrong (180 comments)

Have you played Power Gig? It has 0 lessons, 0 'actually playing the song' modes, and the only portion of the game that is any different from standard Rock Band / Guitar Hero is 'power chords' which aren't the actual notes in the song anyway. Not to mention you can hit the top string with your pick and hold the bottom fret and vice versa. The only thing 'real' about Power Gig is that you can use the guitar outside of the game, and that you have to press on frets and use a pick.

Canadian Libraries Want $300,000 To Buy Games

BumbaCLot Is it enough? (229 comments)

I know the library has DVDs and some music for free, but with Redbox having the newest movies for $1 and other game rental services out there, it is almost as expensive driving there with gas as doing something else almost free.

Not sure this is the best idea but what do I know?

Sounds completely reasonable to me. I don't think any of the half-baked religious nuts know enough about anything to give their children a proper education.
