Neanderthals "Had Sex" With Modern Man

Clay Pigeon -TPF-VS- Re:humans (536 comments)

Flat earthers like you are the reason science is so far behind today.

We could have had flying cars by now if it weren't for the people crying "heresy!" or "(insertwhateverhere)ism!" whenever someone proposed something unorthodox.

Stop. Holding. Humanity. Back.

I was referring more to the state's lack of a general income tax than to microsoft's specific shenanigans.

Why not pass a 1 percent flat tax?

Derp de derp. I'm typing randomly because my message is too short.

New Left 4 Dead DLC Coming Next Month

Clay Pigeon -TPF-VS- Re:How about fixing L4D first? (55 comments)

Ive seen some of gp's problems, but not all of them.

Valve should fix its shit AND deliver the content missing at launch before trying to stuff a sequel down our throats for 50 bucks.

Computerized Election Results With No Election

Clay Pigeon -TPF-VS- Re:And This Is the Government of a Country (433 comments)

sure it isn't. It is just implemented incorrectly every time...

It is a utopian system that doesn't work in the real world that is full of human flaws.

Then why post whinging about it? Are you the same sort of person that complains about being able to find porn on bing after you disable the filters?

IANAL. Establishing bias is a side matter to keeping evidence out because it was obtained illegally, right?

Left 4 Dead 2 Announced For November

Clay Pigeon -TPF-VS- Re:Sigh... (231 comments)

If it is agp ati made an agp version of the 3850.
If it is pcie you've got all sorts of upgrade options right now, which you can plug into your new computer once you build it. Get a new video card. The 6600 is pretty weak compared to what is available now.

Australia is also inhospitable in other ways. Most of the indigenous creatures are deadly to humans.

Hope College's internet conn sucks

Clay Pigeon -TPF-VS- Clay Pigeon -TPF-VS- writes  |  more than 10 years ago I am sick as fuck of this school saying that it cant afford to have more than a 6 Mbaud connection. That is complete bullshit. 2k people sharing 6Mbaud is insane, and CIT won't even let me get a cable modem through comcast, which serves this area. The worst thing about the connection here is that 3Mbaud is reserved for SSL and browser traffic, which means that only 3Mbaud is general purpose. Of course most of that is eaten up by people using p2p applications, meaning that it is impossible to play even the least bandwidth hungry games (like ultima online).

First time with mod points

Clay Pigeon -TPF-VS- Clay Pigeon -TPF-VS- writes  |  more than 11 years ago Today I noticed some strange pull down menus on everyones comments. I had mod points! I do think that the friend/fan/foe/freak/friend of friend/ enemy of friend icons should be disabled while a mod still has mod points. This will discourage favoritism and conflicts of interest. Also, given the amount of very good and very bad posts I think 5 mod points to dole out is not anywhere near enough for a 3 day period.

Clay Pigeon -TPF-VS- Clay Pigeon -TPF-VS- writes  |  more than 11 years ago I wonder if its possible to slashdot the inquirer. Or even better combine the slashdotting power of the two news sites by linking to an inq story that links to a 3rd party... Damn, Ive been awake for 36 hours and I dont feel tired at all. Oh well back to my lovely paper on the glorious election of 2002. *sigh*
