Sweden Considers Adding "Sexism" Ratings To Video Games

Draugo Re:Sexism = Sexy these days (635 comments)

No, the point is that according to feminists women should be allowed to wear whatever they like (or nothing at all) but if men try to have the same right then they're shouted down and almost ruined for life for trying it.

Sweden Considers Adding "Sexism" Ratings To Video Games

Draugo Re:Sexism = Sexy these days (635 comments)

That case is the clearest example we have yet that the Patriarchy is not real. If it was there's no way in hell that Matt whatever his last name was had been forced to apologize for that shirt in such a short notice.

Sweden Considers Adding "Sexism" Ratings To Video Games

Draugo Re:Horribly sexist ! (635 comments)

Or you should understand that not everything you think is sexist is something everyone else thinks is sexist. Most of our problems come from one group of people forcing their morals on everyone outside of that group of people.

Sweden Considers Adding "Sexism" Ratings To Video Games

Draugo Re:Horribly sexist ! (635 comments)

Men are also the defacto villains and mooks that get slaughtered by the hundreds by male and female heroes alike without as much as a second thought, Basically 99.9% of games that include killing are one sided gendercide.

Sweden Considers Adding "Sexism" Ratings To Video Games

Draugo Re:feminism (635 comments)

The whole premise is already sexist. They define sexism only as sexism against women and the whole initiative is done on therms of how they see women are treated. There is allowance for opposing opinions, no possibility of sexism against men and disregard for every competent study ever done which all tend to say that most things in life are gender neutral (like domestic violence where both genders tend to be the aggressor equally but only men go to jail for it, even sometimes for being the victim).

HTML5: It's Already Everywhere, Even In Mobile

Draugo The wait was unnessesary (132 comments)

If they would just have based ECMA4 on Actionscript and stuck with it, we would have had all the things we're still missing in javascript long ago. All this complaining about "proprietary" platforms is just depressing. When people complain about the need for plugin player with flash etc. and how Javascript is so much better since you don't need external players I mentally mark them down as idiots. The only difference between Flash and Javascript from running perspective is that every browser has included the Javascript runtime in the form of Javascript parser, if Flash were included in the same way (especially now that it's an open format) there would be zero differences between these two, except that you could use an actually sane programming language instead of one that lacks consistency and has all the hallmarks of homebrew script language.

Why Scientists Think Completely Unclassifiable and Undiscovered Life Forms Exist

Draugo Re:Duh. (221 comments)

I'd love to clean up dragon poop. It would a) mean that I have a dragon and b) be a great source of revenue since I could sell it to new age hippies as a natural cure for their aura imbalance or something.

CHP Officers Steal, Forward Nude Pictures From Arrestee Smartphones

Draugo Seriously (275 comments)

As bad as this is, if you really think this is where you need ACLU the most out of all the cases they should be working on then you have a problem.

The Inevitable Death of the Internet Troll

Draugo Typical (571 comments)

The Pew research also showed that men receive much more harassment and abuse than women but it sure is not marketed that way.

Too Much Privacy: Finnish Police Want Big Euro Notes Taken Out of Circulation

Draugo Who cares... (314 comments)

I've possibly seen a 200€ or 500€ bank note once or twice in my life. This has no affect on me what so ever and I suspect that people who actually have lots of money don't use those notes either. They are like the 1 and 2 cent coin. They have practically 0 utility in any meaningful transactions and just make everyone's lives harder.

Despite Push From Tech Giants, AP CS Exam Counts Don't Budge Much In Most States

Draugo Re:For the love of god... (144 comments)

The fact that you say "tainted by Men's Rights Organizations" shows that all you know about Men's Rights movement is the propaganda spewed out by feminist publications... or you think that actually pointing out facts and trying to work towards an actual equal society is "being tainted by".

Energy Utilities Trying To Stifle Growth of Solar Power

Draugo Soo... (488 comments)

Trying to end unneeded subsidies is seen as stifling from the solar energy people. I call it fair competition and I'm not even libertarian. Solar and wind are subsidized heavily all over the world which is very much behind their current rise. I would like to see a fair competition of the energy market or barring that at least move towards actually useful short term solutions i.e. nuclear reactors.

The Great Lightbulb Conspiracy

Draugo It depends. (602 comments)

Some do, some don't. One light I purchased was still burning 5 years later when I moved out of the house (I burned it basically around 10 hours a day every day for that time). Another one burned out after a couple of years but it was a cheaper variant.

Ask Slashdot: How To Pick Up Astronomy and Physics As an Adult?

Draugo Podcasts (234 comments)

I would recommend listening to Astronomy 161 (Solar system), 162 (General astronomy, like life cycles of stars etc.) and 141 (Life in the universe). These are three amazing and engaging Ohio University Astronomy courses uploaded for free by Richard Pogge. His lecture style is really great and I've yet to loose interest despite of listening through all of them multiple times (each one is about 45 lectures of 40 minutes each). I'd recommend these to anyone interested even a bit in astronomy. They're entry level courses so you don't need to know anything at all about astronomy (or geology, biology etc. in the case of 141) before going through them, although in that case I'd definitely listen to 161 first, then 162 or 141.

Surprising Result of NYC Bike Lanes: Faster Traffic for Cars

Draugo What... (213 comments)

Is pocket lane some mysterious and unknown thing in US? We have them on most city intersections in Finland and with most I'd estimate somewhere around 90% at least in even small cities. You people really don't think through your designs at all do you?
