C0R1D4N Re:No they're not (156 comments)

You're confusing Enlisted personnel for the entirety of the military. They hope for creatives to join the officer corps.

In UK, Internet Trolls Could Face Two Years In Jail

C0R1D4N Re: F the UK (488 comments)

The same could be said of the US and Russia not going against Hitler early. It can also be said that because the US didn't join the League of Nations it lacked the teeth to do anything against him. Seems silly to blame the UK and France alone.

US Navy Develops Robot Boat Swarm To Overwhelm Enemies

C0R1D4N Re:Or... Check this radical idea... (142 comments)

They want to stop another USS Cole incident, how about this radical idea. Put some frikkin armor on the ships. We went from 12in armor around the entire ship to 2.5in armor around vital spaces only. It's absurd. Our entire Navy is just one big expensive glass cannon (except without the cannon part, we got rid of those too).

The Era of Saturday Morning Cartoons Is Dead

C0R1D4N Re:Looney Tunes (320 comments)

First off, Speedy Gonzalez is LOVED in Mexico, he's a cultural icon there, not a stereotype (his slower cousin maybe not as well received). Also there was a recent show that featured all the characters and definitely as enjoyable or more enjoyable for adults.

The Era of Saturday Morning Cartoons Is Dead

C0R1D4N Re:Cable channels killed it and the OTA stations (320 comments)

It's so hard to believe they can make more off of infomercials. Cartoons had to have ten times their ratings easily. Even with parents usually just throwing ToonDisney/Nicktoons on and leaving it on all day nowadays.

Animaniacs should be considered E/I. To this day I can point out Lake Titicaca on a map if I have to.

CEO of Spyware Maker Arrested For Enabling Stalkers

C0R1D4N Re:Can't let anybody but the NSA have the GOOD toy (195 comments)

I voted third party, it clearly doesn't matter whether you vote R or D, they're still stripping our freedoms, increasing taxes and sending us off to war. At that point there's no harm in sending my vote to a third party.

LTE Upgrade Will Let Phones Connect To Nearby Devices Without Towers

C0R1D4N Re:Can this peer-to-peer like Bittorrent (153 comments)

Actually what he wrote was fine; he stated there wasn't seamless coverage across the entirety of North America, not just west of the Mississippi. Suggesting that areas east of the river were also problematic despite their general higher population density.

A lot of places have absurdly high car rental taxes. I had to rent a car at the dallas airport and there was close to 30% tax on it

Miss a Payment? Your Car Stops Running

C0R1D4N Re: Oh good (907 comments)

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki... Scroll down to see for yourself. Want to actually contribute to the discussion? While in the US it is still more common on fancier cars (land rovers at my work have it) I rented a VW Golf in the UK with it too.

Miss a Payment? Your Car Stops Running

C0R1D4N Re: Oh good (907 comments)

A lot of newer vehicles come with a "feature" that shuts the vehicle off when it comes to a stop such as at a traflic light or heavy freeway traffic.

US Strikes ISIL Targets In Syria

C0R1D4N Re:I'll just let my sig do the talking (478 comments)

Each Tomahawk missile costs about 1.41 million. The cost of a 16 in artillery shell is about $500. If we are going to waste money can we at least do it a little more efficiently?

Scotland's Independence Vote Could Shake Up Industry

C0R1D4N Re:This isn't scaremongering. (494 comments)

Any state can secede, but no state can secede UNILATERALLY which is an important distinction. If a state wants to secede they can't just get the approval of their own citizenry, but that of the rest of the country. The process to do this is through constitutional amendment. If the south had gone this route 150 years ago, the map would probably look a lot different today.
