Aral Sea Basin Almost Completely Dry

DNS-and-BIND Re:Stop blaming the Soviets (146 comments)

Nobody needs to parody environmentalist positions. They parody themselves. Have you read their websites recently? They want to turn all of North America dark because evidently we're bad people who deserve to be punished. Seriously, you haven't read their opinions? That's awfully ignorant for such an educated person.

Are the World's Religions Ready For ET?

DNS-and-BIND Re:Plus what religion might ET bring? (499 comments)

Seeing that we have Neo Nazis there is no creed too stupid for some people.

I don't know, man...at least the neo-nazis are considered idiots and not taken seriously. Their counterparts on the left, Marxists, hold professorships all over the American university system and their views are taken very seriously indeed, by the highest levels of society. Sad, really.

The Executive Order That Redefines Data Collection

DNS-and-BIND Re:Another jackboot stomp on the way to facism (121 comments)

Really? Explicitly cited Godwin's Law, modded up to +3? WTF? Why isn't this shit at -1 where it belongs? Jeez talk about hateful wishful thinking...it's like a catalog of what leftists wish were true. And in their playbook, repeating something enough times does make it true. We learned that one in the 20th century.

"We are all capable of believing things which we know to be untrue, and then, when we are finally proved wrong, impudently twisting the facts so as to show that we were right. Intellectually, is possible to carry this process for an indefinite time: the only check on it is that sooner or later a false belief bumps up against solid reality, usually on a battlefield."
-- George Orwell (1903 - 1950)

LTE Upgrade Will Let Phones Connect To Nearby Devices Without Towers

DNS-and-BIND Re:They've reinvented CB radio! (152 comments)

Nah, they just figured out that if you have a ham radio, the big drawback is that the only thing you can do is talk to people who have ham radios.

Former GM Product Czar: Tesla a "Fringe Brand"

DNS-and-BIND Re: Yeah ... but ... it's true. (267 comments)

Those treehuggers would gladly put every corporation on the face of the planet, including Tesla, out of business tomorrow if they could. Left-wing extremism is no joke.

It speaks volumes that you're either not aware of this, or are aware and agree with it. We need only look to Venezuela to see what happens next.

Microsoft Revives Its Hardware Conference

DNS-and-BIND Re:Frosty pasta! (47 comments)

I love how you say that the wrong color plastic makes a product suck. Really? Seriously? This is how we got to the "thinner is better, for no reason" thought which led directly to the iPhone 6 bendgate.

Man Walks Past Security Screening Staring At iPad, Causing Airport Evacuation

DNS-and-BIND Re:The terrorist won. (216 comments)

I love how this narrative completely ignores the fact that there are shit-tons of right-wing terrorists who would gladly bomb all of us into oblivion. All you have to do is shout "profit" and completely ignore the very real threats that challenge us today. These people are armed to the teeth and mean us harm.

Energy Utilities Trying To Stifle Growth of Solar Power

DNS-and-BIND Re:Survival (476 comments)

Congratulations - you have just reinvented the hovel.

Do you people ever think beyond the immediate consequences of your actions? It's clear that the answer is "no". As soon as the requirement of electricity is removed, shitty-ass slums will immediately appear. Sure, they'll have solar panels on the roof - old broken ones from 5 years ago. But fuck it, because these codes are old-fashioned - Dad's stuff! Ridiculous for this day and age!

The Odd Effects of Being Struck By Lightning

Huh? I see we haven't met many environmentalists. They're mean sons of bitches who spend their entire day being angry.

State of Iowa Tells Tesla To Cancel Its Scheduled Test Drives

DNS-and-BIND Re:Rent a Tesla for $1 (335 comments)

Ah, yes, the familiar left-wing argument. The day that we have a "real democracy" is the day the left-wingers remove our ability to make decisions. Because, you know, none of us voters are qualified to make decisions. It's much better to trust the Socialist Party to make those decisions for us. They're better people, more intelligent, have Ph.D.s. Can you imagine what a nation would look like if the great unwashed made decisions that benefited themselves? Anarchy! Better to live in the "real democracy" - the one that better-qualified people decide we should have.

China Eager To Send Its Own Mission To Mars In the Wake of Mangalyaan

DNS-and-BIND Re:they can do it for lesd (84 comments)

LOL. State ownership of huge companies is indeed a hallmark of communism. I love how so many people are desperately trying to say China was never communist in the first place, because it didn't work out well. It's funny how many capital-C Communist regimes there were in the world - and yet not a single one was communist. It's the No True Scotsman fallacy in action.

They are, in fact, communist. However, they are taking the capitalist road to achieve socialism. This is a heresy of communism, one Mao warned against repeatedly. Critical thinking led the Chinese Communist Party to take the capitalist road, and this lifted the Chinese people out of grinding poverty. Today, things are better than they've ever been before, and tomorrow will be better.

Miss a Payment? Your Car Stops Running

Men can be imprisoned for not being able to pay divorce settlements, so yes we do in fact have debtors' prisons.

Mangalyaan Successfully Put Into Mars Orbit

DNS-and-BIND Re:Mangalyaan in English (173 comments)

It's too long and unpronounceable. They should have consulted a branding consultant before settling on that name. Well, at least they're doing better than the names of most open source products.

Obama Presses China On Global Warming

DNS-and-BIND Re:The pot calling the kettle black (260 comments)

It is utterly chilling to see educated people publically admire a tyrannical government, and openly wish we had the same in America. There are trees and ropes waiting for you kind of people.

Kickstarter Lays Down New Rules For When a Project Fails

DNS-and-BIND Re:think globally (203 comments)

I love how the default attitude is spite. Blame America for doing something wrong, instead of the obvious choice - make your own version of kickstarter. With blackjack, and hookers. Then you don't have to listen to what the Americans say at all. Better yet, you can exclude Americans from participating. You can even go so far as to redirect any American IP address to a landing page where you let them know all the problems you have with the US federal government.

Kickstarter doesn't do deals outside the USA for well-known legal reasons. Maybe you can discover what these are when you start your own - but you won't, so the question is moot. Still, I wish someone would. I just don't see it happening, though.

Is Alibaba Comparable To a US Company?

DNS-and-BIND Re:What a question? (122 comments)

The communist party has a hand in pretty much every large Chinese corporation these days, and in the end they have the final call

I think you do not rightly know what socialism means.

Emails Cast Unflattering Light On Internal Politics of Healthcare.gov Rollout

DNS-and-BIND Re:Not surprising (392 comments)

How sad to be inoculated like this, locked inside your own brain, unable to accept that maybe your side might be the ones who are evil from time to time. It's an evidence-proof worldview, and it's depressingly popular.

New Study Projects World Population of 11B by 2100

DNS-and-BIND Re:No, It Won't (326 comments)

The rate of extreme poverty in China rate fell to 12% in 2010. Guess how much it was in 1981, when they had real socialism? The kind of socialism where people went to prison for being right-wingers. 84%.

It's funny how you call for a truce and say neither is right...when socialism insists that it is 100% right all the time, and is not joking.

FCC Chairman: Americans Shouldn't Subsidize Internet Service Under 10Mbps

DNS-and-BIND Re: I never thought I'd say this... (353 comments)

the simple distastefulness of having barefoot poverty within the US.

Yeah, who is really going to cry for rural white Americans trapped in this cycle? Nobody.

Also, "so backward that nobody wants to be a farmer"? WTF? Farmers are, by definition, backward. They live in shithole nowhere-land. There is no culture, no art, no theater, no learning. Just figuring out how to make money from a patch of land, and molesting your daughters. Who feels sorry for these bitter clingers?

Science checks again: still no aetheric wind detec

DNS-and-BIND DNS-and-BIND writes  |  more than 5 years ago

DNS-and-BIND (461968) writes "In a repeat of the Michelson-Morley experiment of the 19th century, scientists have repeated the experiment and reproduced the results using modern Cryogenic Optical Resonators. The result? The aetheric wind still hasn't been detected, putting the luminiferous aether theory to rest once and for all."
