What Will Google Glass 2.0 Need To Actually Succeed?

ClintJCL Re:Less creepiness (323 comments)

Sure. Literally, it did not.

In context? Switch out some of the nouns and verbs, and you get:

s/they/women/; #(men can get raped too) s/google glass/short skirts/; s/Glassholes/Sluts In Short Skirts/; #update pejorative s/punch/rape/; #update verb s/America/Saudi Arabia/; #helps my metaphor

You get:

Unless Saudi Women can make their short skirts less sexy, people are still going to want to rape Sluts In Short Skirts.

Sure, literally that does not justify it because they don't use the word justified.

But who are we kidding here? You insert a victim-blaming aspect into a situation that involves violence, but want to pretend that gives no justification to the perpetrator.

You're not fooling me.

What Will Google Glass 2.0 Need To Actually Succeed?

ClintJCL Re:Less creepiness (323 comments)

It's good to see the same fallacies dragged out over and over again. Helps cement the fact that wrong people aren't wrong due to being misinformed, but because they choose to repeat the same mantras to themselves over and voer again. I think I understand why the world is so full of violence now.

Oh look... Someone justifying assault by implying that the victim is an asshole. Meanwhile, people who justify assault are..... Not(?) assholes?

HOA Orders TARDIS Removed From In Front of Parrish Home

ClintJCL Re:Remove the goddamn box (320 comments)

Judging others for what they do with their own property is 1,000 times douchier, douchebag. If you want to control what's in the driveway, buy the driveway yourself.

6 Terabyte Hard Drive Round-Up: WD Red, WD Green and Seagate Enterprise 6TB

ClintJCL Re:"NAS" hard drives? (190 comments)

It means 2-3 year warranty instead of 5 year warranty.

6TB isn't ready for the serious archives, who, by my own subjective definition, only purchases drives warranted for 5 years. It's still $160 or so for a 4TB like that.

TL;DR: Once you go WD Black you never go back.

The Interview Bombs In US, Kills In China, Threatens N. Korea

ClintJCL Re:A review from someone who's actually seen it (288 comments)

Someone worrying about F-count == someone whose opinions are based on such antiquated measures as to be wholly irrelevant to me. And I'm 40, so ... Hmm.

Virtual Reality Experiment Wants To Put White People In Black Bodies

ClintJCL Re: Easier method (448 comments)

But if your kids were black, they would be 21X more likely to be shot by police during an encounter when compared to whites, so it would be 21X more important for you to say it. Your anti-anti-racism makes you a racist even if you don't realize it.

Marijuana Legalized In Oregon, Alaska, and Washington DC

ClintJCL Re: Wonderful (588 comments)

I'm sorry your stupid book is so fucking useless as to ruin my example. Next time, I'll just say "pick and choose from the range of accepted beliefs on what it is to be 'good'".

Marijuana Legalized In Oregon, Alaska, and Washington DC

ClintJCL Re:Well, let's criminalize Du Pont Nylon now. (588 comments)

It isn't. They love that they have an additional market of rich americans to pay for hemp products that americans aren't allowed to make for americans.

Marijuana Legalized In Oregon, Alaska, and Washington DC

ClintJCL Re: Wonderful (588 comments)

I'd hope our friends on the left would say that too, as that is the constitution, and you can't pick and choose it like en Evangelical christian does with the bible.

How Apple Watch Is Really a Regression In Watchmaking

ClintJCL Re:How big a fuss is it, really? (415 comments)

If you're already in bed and your bedroom doesn't have room for a nightstand, or only has 2 prong plugs, and you've undressed, and have doors closed for climate control, and must go into a cold room to get it -- pretty damn big difference. Huge. I don't even charge my tablet except at work.

Black Swan Author: Genetically Modified Organisms Risk Global Ruin

ClintJCL Re:Nonsense. Again. (432 comments)

Declaring "nothing" doesn't make it so. Somehow, they decided that a new word with a new definition must be used. Breeding and genetic modification are not the same thing, as much as you want them to be in order to avoid your own silly cognitive dissonance.

TL;DR: You waived your hands like OP, but it's still not a magic trick.

ClintJCL Re:Nonsense. Again. (432 comments)

Yet, let's equivocate all forms of modification to mean the exact same thing, rather than accept complexity and think about the specific details.

Bill Gates: Piketty's Attack on Income Inequality Is Right

ClintJCL Re:Let me get this right (839 comments)

Flat tax is bullshit because money's value to an individual is logrithmic, not linear.

Taking 50 percent from Bill Gates reduces his power almost by 0. Taking 50 percent from that single mother? Her kids are homeless. The same tax level is not simply the same for all people. Flat tax is an idea for the rich, by the rich, disguised as an idea for the people, by the people. Like *most* American politics.

Startup's Open Source Device Promises Gamers "Surround Sound For Your Eyes"

ClintJCL Re:Wrong approach (43 comments)

I guess you missed the parts where projected colors also constitute "light". A light behind your screen is good. Color matching doesn't take that away.

Sincerely, Owner of a custom PC-based $300 Ambilight system for 7 years. It makes a huge difference.

One In Three Jobs Will Be Taken By Software Or Robots By 2025, Says Gartner

ClintJCL Re:automation + liberal capitalism = disaster (405 comments)

Per capita is meaningless. If I create a country where I have a billion dollars, and live with 1,000 who actually owe me money, I can brag that everyone in my country is worth a million dollars. It would be misleading bullshit, like your summary.
