It's like every two missions i'm spending a month in the clink.

BitTorrent "Bundles" Create Cash Registers Inside Artwork

Flipstylee Nope (97 comments)

This is a step back. This will be exploited/cracked/patched to hell and back, especially if the bulk is kept client-side. This is DRM. Every lock is built around the key, nothing is perfectly secure.

I hope it helps the artists though, i know musicians everywhere get fucked severely by the "record companies".

Valve Announces Steambox, Sort Of

Flipstylee Re:Don't we have enough FPS titles already? (252 comments)

From what I've seen, it seems that >90% of steam titles are various variants of FPS titles. On top of that the top sellers for XBox and PS3 are FPS as well. Eventually the market will hit saturation; we haven't really seen a technological jump in the genre in some time to the best of my understanding. What would Steam sell once the FPS fad is up and people want to play games that involve something other than shootting/stabbing high res people/zombies?

Totally agree with all points but the last assumption; That the "fad" ends. My journey down the fps highway began with Doom, and there were others before it, it's been since 95 for me. A long "fad".

Arrested Chinese Blogger "Confesses" On State TV, Praises Censorship

Flipstylee Re:i wonder what they threatened him with (349 comments)

The bradley manning confession, do you think american people were smart enough to believe it was forced?

It's funny you should ask that because i am american, and the first thought i had was "Bullshit. Lock a man naked in a room for weeks on end, only to be tortured
the few times he sees the light of day, and he'd say just about anything. I know i would."

They were in the process of doing this when i left the company about 4 years ago, no word if it went through.
If so, that's a few million right there.

Flipstylee Re:First robot to drill into a rock? (51 comments)

Your planet may have sent millions of robots over the last thousand of our earth years, but this is the first one humans have sent that has drilled into rock.

Sony Fined In UK For PlayStation Network Hack

Flipstylee Not about money (86 comments)

It's a PR slap, the money is irrelevant, it's what could be done, and i wish we would do more of that at here in the US.
Alot of sensitive information was let out into the open, and i was affected in that i had to get a new card. Not a problem. Then it happened again.
So i get another new card, and i now have a fancy blu-ray player, completely isolated and not connected, not subscribing to or buying anything. Not a problem.

Why Girls Do Better At School

Flipstylee Penises (690 comments)

(most) Girls don't have penises. When your attention is divided between what you're learning and said penis, these things happen.

Totally making shit up here because i didn't RTFA, and my reason and the science behind it seem to be about the same as their study.

Please do better science, or science in general.

Behavior of Birds Depends On Their Hatching Order

Flipstylee Re:Anedotal evidence suggests same for humans... (67 comments)

Nope, not just you. The thing is, if your family and the people you know are as big as mine,
we would be about equal in numbers to their study. I think if there's going to be anything to this, they need
a much bigger group.

NASA: New Mars Rover By 2020

Flipstylee Europa! (79 comments)

Fuck Mars! The moon makes a good jumping off point, and Mars a good checkpoint,
but NASA funding has been dwindling and they're already doing everything BUT dropping
shit on Europa. /rant

Seriously though, we've got a SCIENCE TANK on Mars... for old riverbeds and regolith.

Voyager 1, So Close To Interstellar Space That We Can Taste It!

Flipstylee Re:For those of us alive when this was launched, (271 comments)

Question: How in the hell do you capture something at 41,411,976 mph?

As i'm to understand it, even if the Oort Cloud is incredibly dense by our estimates,
there's still going to be a slim chance of interacting with anything sizeable to mine, let alone just happen to match our velocity.
Dreaming big though.

I Agree, also, the thing did weigh upwards of a ton, i know we can build smaller and lighter than in the 70's.

Nobel Prize Winner Got Free House and Free (as In Beer) Beer

Flipstylee Re:Interesting facts about the Bohr House beer (118 comments)

And no two beers could be in the same state at the same time.

Which begs the question, If i have an unopened 12 pack, are the bottles empty or full?

I think it's about time to collapse some wave functions, cheers!

Large Hadron Collider May Have Produced New Matter

Flipstylee I'm no expert (238 comments)

But i'm very happy with findings like these, if this gets us any closer to understanding the soup, maybe we can figure out
the math for what happens inside the event horizon of a black hole. That will be a revolution. (har)

With Pot Legal, Scientists Study Detection of Impaired Drivers

Flipstylee No Such Level (608 comments)

You take a few puffs and you're high, maybe you take only one, but you're high just the same.

Through years of dealing with marijuana users (and having been one myself), I've not seen it to be
about the amount, but rather the quality. I've been amongst those to smoke for hours consecutively, and never get
as high as i was up until the first contact set in.

I have no links, anyone chime in here, these are my own
personal experiences.

I believe measuring this will be difficult, aside from looking for how red/closed/open the
individuals eyes are, yet different strains produce different affects...
