The Inevitable Death of the Internet Troll

Draugo Typical (541 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.

I'm in the midst of one right now. My depression sure doesn't help the matter either.

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?

Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

It's funny that you brought up MtG. Did you know that Wizards has a policy that all MtG Angels are female and all MtG Devils are male?

Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

Draugo Re:promoting violence against women? (1134 comments)

Wait... you think that all of the countless nameless mook males that die in FPS games have more personality than the woman victims that often deserve a cutscene or two before dying... you seem to have a strange definition of character, personality and role in the story.

"MythBusters" Drops Kari Byron, Grant Imahara, Tory Belleci

Draugo Re: My wife will miss Grant. (364 comments)

Hilariously I just watched the QI episode where they discussed that and the revelation that "soup is better if latrines are downstream" came at the beginning of UK empire era and allowed them to conquer without constantly suffering from diarrhea :)

"MythBusters" Drops Kari Byron, Grant Imahara, Tory Belleci

Draugo What they really should do... (364 comments)

is to stop spoiling the myth results during opening scenes. Drop the highly annoying US style editing where watchers apparently have the attention span measured in seconds and you have to repeat half of the program after every commercial break (which there are an astounding number in US apparently) and go through the program one myth at a time instead of bouncing from topic to topic (again I suspect because of the apparent attention span of general US public).
