U.S. Senator: All Cops Should Wear Cameras

ClintJCL Re:Precedent, anyone? (620 comments)

Cops can already wear a camera and can already run facial recognition. You seem to be confusing the absence of this law as being equivalent to a prohibition of activities you do not like. It is not, and your logic is fallacious.

U.S. Senator: All Cops Should Wear Cameras

ClintJCL Re:The death of leniency (620 comments)

I have a problem with you thinking this is a problem. What you are essentially saying is that making police accountable for bad deeds has a "dark side" of actual criminals actually being prosecuted for actual crimes. Ummm... That's a huge improvement to framed/scam crimes, which police charge people with EVERY day.

Put A Red Cross PSA In Front Of the ISIS Beheading Video

ClintJCL Re:If by "decreeses" you mean "increases", then ye (300 comments)

By denotation, sure.

By connotation, I was talking about the battle I thought I'd been invited to -- that of reasoned debate, where I have to actually use my brain a bit.

Those cycles are lost on him. But sure, I'll move my fingers some.

Imagine my surprise where you continue your ad hominem tactics, and pretend like remembering instagram motivators is a measure of intelligence.

ClintJCL Re:If by "decreeses" you mean "increases", then ye (300 comments)

It's a matter of choosing my battles. I don't make it a point to explain myself to people who willfully misunderstand me. I think there's some instagrammed stock photobullshit that probably has those words in front of it in cursive on a tumblr somewhere...

Facebook Experimenting With Blu-ray As a Storage Medium

ClintJCL Re:Why not just use hard drives and then store... (193 comments)

Your quick on-line search sucks balls. I've been buying blu-rays for around $1/ea for 1.5 years. Amazon. You couldn't find amazon?

Solid State Drives Break the 50 Cents Per GiB Barrier, OCZ ARC 100 Launched

ClintJCL Re:Not a barrier (183 comments)

Me? i was the one responding to the guy who said they weren't real barriers. So we're agreeing. So I don't understand why your comment sounds like disagreeing.

Solid State Drives Break the 50 Cents Per GiB Barrier, OCZ ARC 100 Launched

ClintJCL Re:Not a barrier (183 comments)

Except it is, and you don't dictate how reality works. All I have to do is have made a purchasing decision by that criteria at any point in my own life (which you can't disprove) in order to have a counter example that disproves your idiotic statement.

Solid State Drives Break the 50 Cents Per GiB Barrier, OCZ ARC 100 Launched

ClintJCL Re:Not a barrier (183 comments)

It's a mental barrier. People have price points, and they are often round numbers like $1/M, $1/G (depending on when you grew up), etc.

Inside the Facebook Algorithm Most Users Don't Even Know Exists

If you think Facebook keeps you in a bubble where you aren't exposed to ideas you don't like, you must have never been on Facebook. Try a day on my feed...

Vint Cerf on Why Programmers Don't Join the ACM

ClintJCL I joined the ACM (213 comments)

And they shut down my shell account 15 years later citing that we can easily host our web content elsewhere. Nevermind that I'd built a web presence on non-rotting link URLs for 15 years. so yea... I paid the ACM for decades, and if i could go back in time, I would un-join, and not pay them a damn penny. Special thanks to Virginia Tech sysadmin John Edstrom for ruining it for us.

Man Booted From Southwest Flight and Threatened With Arrest After Critical Tweet

ClintJCL Re:So am I. Specifically, violated how? (928 comments)

Using a road isn't the same as being funded by the govt. The road was already built. That might be the crux you're looking for?
