Calculus Textbook Author James Stewart Has Died

DNS-and-BIND Re:Math author dies rich... (165 comments)

"It's too bad the Soviet Union didn't survive" is an odd phrase indeed. Is this the first time it has ever been used?

The Soviet Union couldn't have gotten on the internet, there would have been too much free information floating around. To heck with the internet - the Soviets couldn't even sell Xerox machines to the general public, they would have been used by the people for anti-Communist activities. But don't trust me, listen to one of the Soviet leaders (and, by extension, one of the smartest people in their entire empire).

In a remarkable tete-a-tete with a US journalist and former arms control official, Marshal Nikolai Ogarkov, First Deputy Defense Minister and Chief of the General Staff, interpreted the real meaning of SDI:
"We cannot equal the quality of U.S. arms for a generation or two. Modern military power is based on technology, and technology is based on computers. In the US, small children play with computers... Here, we don't even have computers in every office of the Defense Ministry. And for reasons you know well, we cannot make computers widely available in our society. We will never be able to catch up with you in modern arms until we have an economic revolution. And the question is whether we can have an economic revolution without a political revolution."

What were those reasons that everyone knew well? Ever heard of samizdat? No, eh?

Microsoft Gets Industry Support Against US Search Of Data In Ireland

DNS-and-BIND Re:You're drunk, America. Go home and sleep it off (137 comments)

Can't you ever see anything positive about the Obama administration? You're just dead-set on opposing them, no matter what they do. Your racism is showing. Go home and sleep it off, and do a better job of disguising it next time, because everyone in the world just saw through you. +5 Insightful my ass, more like +5 Racist.

Time To Remove 'Philosophical' Exemption From Vaccine Requirements?

DNS-and-BIND Re:One other 'philosophical' problem (1050 comments)

You right-wing Islamophobic assholes will never stop, will you? You're just going to continue with the hate. Any possible reason you can cling to to hate the people with whom you disagree, you're going to take it. You fuckwits make me sick. You need to be eradicated from our scientific society. We have no place for bigots like you.

New Compilation of Banned Chinese Search-Terms Reveals Curiosities

DNS-and-BIND Re:There is no more "good guy" (43 comments)

Well, there is the fact that the Chinese commies murdered 60,000,000 people in pursuit of their utopia. And dammit, didn't achieve it. I mean, if they HAD achieved socialism, it would have been worth it. 60,000,000 human beings dead, but the end-state would have justified the means. The best part would have been that they PROVED that it could work, and provided the rest of the world a template to get there. Of course, the road would have been paved with murdered humans, but that kind of thing gets glossed over when we're talking about the final victory of socialism.

Of course, this completely ignores the 100,000,000 people that the US government has murdered since 9/11, but hey. We can't all be perfect.

Google Closing Engineering Office In Russia

DNS-and-BIND Re:Growing Isolation (157 comments)

You mention Putin but never once mention CIA, NSA, Microsoft, Google, Apple, IRS, or any American influences at all, sadly. Do you really think that the Russians can do their own thing without this influence? Blame the source, not the symptom!

I notice you didn't take notice of the elephant in the room, you Islamophobic piece of shit. You people won't stop until you stomp out the invading religion and replace it with your own. You sort of right-wing nutbags make me sick.

Maybe someone should make that game. But that game won't be nethack. Just make a new game, stop trying to "reimagine" existing ideas! Be original!

Canadian Agency Drops Cases Rather Than Deal With New Requirements For ISP Info

DNS-and-BIND Re:Ond once again we learn they have been lying... (29 comments)

In this "other America", they read loud and clear that the serious film and theater fucking hate them. No, really...ask any theater or film person what they think of the average American. Nothing but pure hatred. Then, ask what the average Muslim Arab thinks of the Jews, and compare and contrast those viewpoints.

BZZT wrong. A felony on one's record will result in the EU denying a visa. Of course, we know that visas are ridiculous and a relic of another age...but try entering the EU while swimming across the Atlantic Ocean...it's not nearly the same as the shallow, waist-deep Rio Grande.

UK Announces 'Google Tax'

Governments don't create stable economies and societies. They people that live there do that. Governments just chuckle and fleece the people for as much as they think they can get.

Is Chernobyl Still Dangerous? Was 60 Minutes Pushing Propaganda?

DNS-and-BIND Re:The Poster is an Idiot (409 comments)

Uhhh...that's exactly what happened to the people the Communist government sent in to deal with Chernobyl. They died like flies (not that the government gave a shit about them). They were known as 'liquidators' and they were either coerced into going, or the government simply lied to them and told them the situation wasn't hazardous. But not to fear - the government gave the ones that survived a piece of metal with a design on it to compensate.

UK Authorities Launching Massive Child Abuse Database

DNS-and-BIND Re:Muslim Men (150 comments)

It's totally OK to do that, though. Did you ever read any leftist history books? They judge the whole of American and European history by politically correct standards that didn't exist until after 1990, and they consider themselves completely in the right to do so. Any Western culture that had the misfortune not to foresee centuries in the future is ruthlessly judged.

Is Chernobyl Still Dangerous? Was 60 Minutes Pushing Propaganda?

DNS-and-BIND Re:Attack the messenger (409 comments)

He's right, though. 60 Minutes has a long history of being full of shit, of lying to people they interview, of editing interviews to make people look bad, and other standard journalistic techniques.

You might want to check - it's the anti-nuclear zealots who are bad at science. Ask them if a nuclear power plant can explode like a nuclear bomb sometime, you'll be surprised (or not) by the horribly misinformed responses you get.

A Mismatch Between Wikimedia's Pledge Drive and Its Cash On Hand?

DNS-and-BIND Re:Not only that... (274 comments)

"the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit"

Apparently it doesn't work that way. You have to be a "wikipedian" and somehow know how to do things. But the problem is that by being a "wikipedian", something happens to your brain and you start shitting over people who are not "wikipedians" for trying to edit your precious encyclopedia. I can't help but notice the condescending, shitty attitude dripping throughout your post, and the personal attack on the mental capacity of the grandparent poster.

Yup, I believe you're a "wikipedian". Sadly confirms the stereotypes.

DNS-and-BIND Re:Not sure there's a problem... (274 comments)

It's more like they have way too much money, and having it, feel the need to spend it on stupid shit like that picture viewer that nobody asked for. Frankly, I'd like to see Wikipedia spend some money on content instead of just being a free rider. Hire some professional proofreaders and fact-checkers.

Science checks again: still no aetheric wind detec

DNS-and-BIND DNS-and-BIND writes  |  about 6 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."
