Fake Engine Noise Is the Auto Industry's Dirty Little Secret

Calydor Re:It's all about me. (809 comments)

If visual clues are so important, why aren't cars mandated to all be in the most visible colors possible, rather than lots of silver or black cars that vanish against the background?

If engine noise gets mandated, so help me I will lobby to have it mandated that ALL cars be neon orange with large green dots.

Calydor Re:Not sure how this is necessary (322 comments)

Suspicion of mass bullying:

1) Ask bullied kid to log into Facebook and show THEIR logs.
2) Ask other bullied kids if you know of any.
3) If bullying actually took place, and it is illegal, file a subpoena for the full logs.

No need to reveal passwords on suspicion.

Windows 10: Can Microsoft Get It Right This Time?

Calydor Re:betteridge's law of headlines (489 comments)

The trick to the Betteridge law is that when a journalist writes a headline as a question, the question is suggesting what most people find improbable; and the improbable rarely happens.

Calydor Re:live by the sword (320 comments)

It's a good thing Americans revolted over that whole taxation without representation thing and completely removed it from their country for all time, never to be reinstated.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson Explains His Christmas Tweet

Calydor Re:Dude, wait... (681 comments)

You're confusing two things, here.

Jesus, the man, the guy with a bunch of hippie ideas about everyone loving each other, MAY have existed around that time.

Jesus, the son of God, that is more questionable from every verifiable point of view.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson Explains His Christmas Tweet

Calydor Re:Dude, wait... (681 comments)

Why are you blaming Neil?

Blame Isaac for having the NERVE to be born on December 25th! After Jesus was (not) born on that date NO ONE ELSE should be born then!

Sony PlayStation Network Back Up Now, Supposedly

Calydor Re:Lesson goes unlearned (75 comments)

Call Collect?

The US SMS system? Technically not a call, but still communication over your phone.

An argument could be made that half of your phone subscription payment is for the ability to receive calls.

65,000 Complaints Later, Microsoft Files Suit Against Tech Support Scammers

Calydor Re:No, They Haven't Called Me (246 comments)

So they can leave a voice mail along the lines of, "This is NAME at HOSPITAL, please call us at your earliest convenience as we have someone here who has listed you as a point of contact."

Then when you get out of that long highway tunnel and can pull over you can check your voice mail and go to the hospital.

You don't NEED to be instantly accessible, there is nothing wrong with being QUICKLY accessible.

Rabbits have internal information which under the right conditions can be used to form a new rabbit.
