Reeves Rumors Reversed

Carl.E.Pierre Re:There is a god (156 comments)

I don't know why people hate Matrix 2/3 so much.
Other than being one half hour too long, I thought it was a fine science-based fiction, as good as any of the classic novels (I Robot, Foundation, 2001, Ender's Game).

Your lack of taste is appalling. Seek help!

Internet Sales Tax Gets a New Champion

Carl.E.Pierre Re:Reduce federal spending, increase state spendin (276 comments)

I think you mean, "Hmm live with high taxes or live where people push their bias, instead of mine, into the school books..."

More like "Hmm live with high taxes or live where people intentionally push their bias into the school books..."

Everyone has biases, and they are bound to make their way into the books. But when a group of people who have no business messing with textbooks in the first place go in with an agenda, that is a problem

Conservative Textbook Curriculum Passes Final Vote In Texas

Carl.E.Pierre Re:Care to support your assertion with facts? (895 comments)

Where's any actual data that supports your assertion that the USA innovates more because it's more right-leaning?

Thank you for saying it.

I always thought we were more 'innovative' because of how open we were to new ideas, peoples and because of our capitalistic system.

Obama Calls Today's Ubiquitous Gadgets and Information "a Distraction"

Carl.E.Pierre Re:it wasn't a distraction last year (545 comments)

No, I am glad he did.

I mean, it was pretty obvious that this dude was not a "Middle aged white man in his 40s," but at the time, that ALL the authorities had to go on. The media went crazy with it as they are wont too, but that does not change the facts

The irony here is that you do not realize that you are guilty of the bias that you readily accuse of.

I thought the Bush years were full of people spouting BS to validate themselves, but that is nothing compared to the Obama years.

Canonical Explains Decision to License H.264 For Ubuntu

Carl.E.Pierre Re:Good thing (372 comments)

Because that is what Ubuntu is striving for and it has been pretty obvious from the start.

If you do not like it(as I do not), I suggest you use one of other billion distros out there or fork Ubuntu(I already see a 'pure' version happening anyway)

New Litigation Targets 20,000 BitTorrent-Using Downloaders

Carl.E.Pierre Re:WTF are they thinking? (949 comments)

Or perhaps they are a lot of things, not willing to fit into the neat little boxes that everyone seems to want to stuff them into.

Flaw In Emergency Response System May Have Killed Hundreds

Carl.E.Pierre Re:More like a flaw in statistics (437 comments)

No. His argument makes perfect sense. Perhaps he is not completely mindful of scope, but the basics apply. We are all expected to do our jobs 'perfectly' with little to no mistakes, the more 'important' your job is to society, the more is demanded of you.

Sure we are not perfect, but perfection will always be demanded of us and we have to do our best.

How Do You Get Users To Read Error Messages?

Carl.E.Pierre Less Error Messages (951 comments)

If the error popups were not so frequent and identical, people might actually care when one shows up. This of course means having stuff that breaks less...

EU Overturns Agreement With US On Banking Data

This is how you wind up with idiots surrounded by yes-men in charge.

So just about every leading body and government ever?

Malware Threat Reports Are "Apples and Oranges"

Carl.E.Pierre Re:Example of competition gone wrong (191 comments)

No, there certainly is such a thing. I hate to be one to preach how great mac and Linux are, but they are 'Inherently resistant'(Combination of obscurity and the lack of the porosity leading weak points to be mainly the user, and even then defending him/her from his/herself). There is a huge difference between that and immunity though.

Yale Researchers Find New RNA Structures

Carl.E.Pierre Re:Curious choice of analogies (90 comments)

I've always liked the formulation "the fitter *tend* to survive" rather than "survival of the fittest". You might be the fittest human being that ever lived, but if a boulder falls on your testicles before you have a chance to successfully breed, it's pretty damned irrelevant.

Semantics. *Tries not to link to poster's earlier comments*

Why AT&T Should Dump the iPhone's Unlimited Data Plan

Carl.E.Pierre Re:Irrelevant fact to this issue (501 comments)

Call me crazy, but i would actually like for them to do nothing. Perhaps then apple will come to its senses and end this exclusivity crap and allow me to use an iPhone without being ATT's bitch. But knowing how these things work, ATT probably has exclusivity for a long time to come(did they not help fund the iPhone?).
