Virtual Reality Experiment Wants To Put White People In Black Bodies

ClintJCL Re: Easier method (444 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.

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.

Forest Service Wants To Require Permits For Photography

ClintJCL Re:Should we jump to conclusions? (299 comments)

It's a slippery slope, just not a slippery slope fallacy.

Forest Service Wants To Require Permits For Photography

ClintJCL Re:It's time to fire samzenpus (299 comments)

Huh?? This WILL affect normal civilians. Calling journalism "yellow" when the only fallacy is your own inability to understand how this affects you and me -- THAT's the failing here.

Forest Service Wants To Require Permits For Photography

ClintJCL Re:Should we jump to conclusions? (299 comments)

The slope *is* slippery, and it's not a fallacy. 100% of government laws to prevent commercial photography get applied against non-commercial photography. 100%. Go read the PhotographyIsNotACrime blog. You can find story after story, month after month, year after year, of people being arrested for "not being allowed to film" in an area. The fact of the matter is, the enforcers never read the fine print in these laws, and 100% of the time, they apply to you and me. Calling this fallacious because of a logical fallacy in a list of logical fallacies is actually the logically fallacy here. It's a bit counter-intuitive, but if you stop to realize the government itself is illogical, then you realize: All slippery slope arguments pertaining to encroaching government are actually true. If not all, 99%.

I never said I streamed, but if making up facts about the person you are talking too constitutes a discussion, please continue and tell me more things I'm doing. Maybe my mom wears combat boots?
