Rendering Synthetic Objects Into Old Photographs

E.I.A Re:Now we'll finally get proof of (134 comments)

Alright, this is it. My final farewell to /. and a big FUCK YOU to those who continually mod me as a "troll" every time I apply political humor. Yes, you can fuck off and have your sterilized (lovy Govy) comments to your selves, you sockpuppet cunts. I can only say in parting that you are doing no favors to anyone by censoring comments, and for that time will tell. Here is my /. suicide. And once again, FUCK YOU.

If they can pass through a plume of silver ions unscathed, I'll be impressed - not that I'm not already.

everything? Watch as the White House now releases proof of Osama vs Seals and all sorts of other strange things. I can already see Mohamed hovering over the USS Carl Vinson in approval, down to the fine woolen fibres of the flying carpet. Fiction will now be a fair contestant to reality.

E.I.A Guy Fawkes for iMother of the Year (481 comments)

Guy/s, Do you have any plans for Distributed Daycare online Services yet? . ...Also, I'm not insinuating anything here - but something about J. Bieber just doesn't seem right. You may want to look into that as well...just a hunch. I mean, it could be an innocent infant stuffed into a large plastic doll, and if so, it must be saved immediately. Sincerely, Anonymous

Researchers ID Skype, BitTorrent Users

E.I.A Re:Researchers? (180 comments)

How does this comment get "flamebait" and the one saying essentially the same thing below gets 5 for "interesting". You guys need to lighten up a bit with the trigger-happy troll crap. I get branded a troll every time I make a joke. wtf?

Fat Replaces Oil In F-16s

E.I.A Re:Whose fat? (206 comments)

Not that I couldn't mod that as "off topic", but I'd be more inclined toward "insightful". Without replying to all the details - for which I sympathize and mostly agree - I can only say: All the woes you've mentioned (save death) could be solved with a financial equivalent much less than that of a single flight's worth of fuel, whether it be jet-fuel, or any sort of propulsive fat. Yet struggle as you will, and pay taxes as thou must; who's fat is it really that they are using? More than a billion dollars per day? Seems they've got our bones too. While China passively occupies Africa, South America and other nations with offerings of non-interference and mutual benefit, the US still plays IMF, and our military sets up unproductive bases everywhere it can. This is is pure cost and close to no benefit for anyone but contractors and soldiers, and maybe a few locals who get their money (an exclusive economy). I support good military, but not the abuse or over extension of it, and again express my contempt for the superfluous funding of war and gross neglect of our national infrastructure. Anyway, thanks again for the thoughtful response, and all the best with the PhD!

TSA Doing Random Truck Searches On Tennessee Highway

E.I.A Re:Acronyms (578 comments)

Soon, none other than the source itself. Apparently, even satire of such acronyms may soon be forbidden under law: http://www.prisonplanet.com/house-bill-would-criminalize-satire-of-tsa.html The terms do seem terribly vague, and protection under satire law (frxx speech) have surely been an annoyance for those who are most susceptible to it (satire). There's nothing like an iron fist to smash the mouth of intelligence.

TSA Doing Random Truck Searches On Tennessee Highway

E.I.A Re:Occupy the interstate! (578 comments)

Ha! I'm in. Here in Florida though, pedestrian traffic is illegal on the interstate. Kind of like a prison, no? You can drive your hummer anywhere you fancy, but if you dare walk, you're a criminal.

TSA Doing Random Truck Searches On Tennessee Highway

E.I.A Suspicious Activity? (578 comments)

Ohh, ooh,Count me in! ...First, I wanna report that mathematically, the amount of effort and funding involved in countering domestic terrorism is alarmingly disproportionate to the actual threat. I have reason to believe the Bureaucracy has been infiltrated by econo-terrorists, and paranoid authoritarians. The fact that one has an enormously greater chance of being fatally stricken by a substandard driver than a bomb-harboring truck suggests that someone in the TSA is at least hostile to math - if not common sense. Second, I wish to report that unreasonable punishments for victimless/consensual crimes are suspiciously causing more harm than mitigation; I think this must be investigated. I also wish to make a confession: I think public safety is more important than awarding private contractors and private prisons, and that liberties should not be used as currency to fund a police state. I hope that helps, and please don't mess with my grandma's diaper; she's really not a terrorist, I swear.

Legal Tender? Maybe Not, Says Louisiana Law

E.I.A Re:Craigslist? (655 comments)

"It took FEMA 5 days to get potable water to the Superdome." ... And it would have taken Walmart, and several other sources who tried, about 1 day - that is, if they had not been turned away by FEMA. I think Katrina could just as easily be used as yet more evidence to highlight that something is exceedingly foul in that state. While I am kind of in-between on the two contesting comments here, I'll at least say a few more things things. No hurricanes - just education. Fuck Louisiana. Let's use hatred sparingly. And finally, if he does fall from the motorcycle, I hope it is stationary, and merely to catch a falling beer. Cheers, and don't tread on me.

Fat Replaces Oil In F-16s

E.I.A Re:Whose fat? (206 comments)

Thanks for reconsidering it. I speak (write) what I think, and in a (our) dynamically saturated current state of (strange) affairs, it sometimes comes out a bit odd. Part of the sarcasm is based in my contempt (yes, contempt) for excessive military spending, and a slight aversion to killing machines (unless used on actual *confirmed* enemies). I am an indebted student myself, so self deprecation is fair enough. And yes, I do think the US is heading directly in the direction of fascism, though I do not intend to argue the subject here, or troll, or anything other than hint at it in passing as I often do. I also might add that such "nutjobs" if actually listened to, might have more to say than some expect, but I am sure I am just as wrong as I may be right. Anyway, I don't care what fuel F16s use, so long as they stay away from the innocent, and the source isn't (potential) food or civilians ;)

Fat Replaces Oil In F-16s

E.I.A Re:Whose fat? (206 comments)

Are you referring to me as a troll? Any reason? My response was a sincere application of my own sense of humor. It is odd that any time I mention something about "sensitive" gov-related topics, I get trolled by ...trolls? Look at my comment history and see what evidence of trolling you can find. Perhaps you have "good" intentions, but throwing "troll" at everything you disagree with or fail to understand is a bit stupid. Anyway, I'm the /. community values your OCD housekeeping. Keep up the "good" work. - Not a troll

Fat Replaces Oil In F-16s

E.I.A Whose fat? (206 comments)

With objective journalists, activists, and Ron Paul supporters all going on fusion-center/DHS/FBI watch-lists, there might soon be a surplus. Maybe instead of a debtors prison, they'll just squeeze out some fat from all the pizza-stuffed college students who can't pay their loans. Or - considering the success of the "Freedom Fry" anomaly - perhaps patriotism can be exploited to encourage voluntary liposuction. I'm sure a good 20 minute Fox broadcast could inspire millions.

Occupy Wall Street Protests Go Global

Occupy Wall Street Protests Go Global

E.I.A Re:Quick Hitsory Lesson (944 comments)

Well then, if 99% can't wangle this one, I think we're facing a problem with modern genetics. Either that or TV, hotdogs and Budlight are enough to keep ANYone down - or the math is a little off. I do support these protests and support them much, but also understand that 99 pitchforks cannot budge a single tank. If anything, the protests are a prelude to something much different. Parasites don't leave by request -- they must be removed with great effort. But I'm certainly not calling it a purge........

Correlating Psychopathy With Speech Patterns

E.I.A DoubleSpeak Sanitarium (270 comments)

This article has surely caused massive paranoia amongst politicians. I reckon a few generals are nervous too. I can think of no greater affectation indicating psychopathy than that which can compulsively lie to those who would - and do - die for the liars. I just hope the World's Thorazine supplies can accommodate the District of Columbia; and I can think of a few individuals who might require a little more than a fair share. What we must first decide, is where to put them. I am thinking Novaya Zemlya might do, but Mars also remains an option in the event that Russia objects (likely).

Leonardo DiCaprio To Play Alan Turing?

E.I.A Oooh, the apple scene (269 comments)

I just can't wait to see Leo bite into the poisoned apple. The hormonal castration should be particularly dramatic too. Maybe they can get the political apology right in the film, and properly repent for a truly disgusting deed. But I still think Matt Damon would be a goodlier choice, based on the face. ....Well Alan, you were way ahead of your time, but we were still in the dark ages. Sorry about that, and thanks for all the help. PS: If you come back, try San Francisco, Rome, or maybe Key West; I hear they finally accepted that patterns of "indecency" are not always matters of choice, and even if they were, they're your own. And anyway, you're really not missing much - and CCTV never flatters the form.

Police Say They Can Detain Photographers If Their

E.I.A E.I.A writes  |  more than 3 years ago

E.I.A (2303368) writes "Be forewarned: that which is a pulchritude to you may be an eyesore to an officer, and it may be wise to keep this in mind when pointing your camera at that next rare spectacle. California law enforcement officers are now enforcers of aesthetics too, and have been delegated the authority to detain photographers based on the officer's subjective evaluations of the photographer's taste."

House Committee Approves Internet Spy Policy

E.I.A E.I.A writes  |  more than 3 years ago

E.I.A (2303368) writes "Despite the collaborative efforts of scores of privacy advocates (EFF) and leaders of both Republican and Democratic interests, the H.R. 1981 bill has been approved. This bill will require ISPs to retain data on their customer's usage, and essentially criminalize anyone behind a monitor. Ne Boltai comrades!"

Cyber-molester gonna get you

E.I.A E.I.A writes  |  more than 3 years ago

E.I.A (2303368) writes "A research report titled Cyberstalking in the United Kingdom is proposing that the psychological effects of cyber-stalking are comparable to rape, and cause PTSD equivalent to that inflicted by combat or war. If no more than an English phobia, “cyberstalking” probably wont become a new global soap-opera, and will likely only be embraced my a minority of eccentric Brits."

One-way surveillance protocol - police cameras

E.I.A E.I.A writes  |  more than 3 years ago

E.I.A (2303368) writes "An article in the Sarasota Herald informs readers of new plans to equip police with subtle cameras.

These cameras may not be clearly visible, and will reside somewhere on the officer’s person. This could be a major improvement to police performance, but could also create problems too. Such problems could include further attacking civilian attempts to record officers under the premise that it is already being done “officially”. In order to thoroughly evaluate this we would need an understanding of the protocols used, and those who have read-write access to it. Also, police have quite a reputation amongst lawyers for baiting and lying to entrap those they wish to arrest or harass............"
