Booted From Airplane For Wearing Anti-TSA T-shirt

Fujisawa Sensei Just broke the irony meter here (826 comments)

/. managed to finally break the irony meter.

All the bitching about obummer, and sucking Ron&Rand Paul's "Libertarian" penis because they're anti-tsa.

Except it wasn't the TSA who caused this, is was a business exercising its right to refuse service, because the guy was a douschebag and work a t-shirt to make other paying customers uncomfortable. Rand and Ron have nothing against businesses enforcing their own set of standards and ethics. Businesses can do whatever the fuck they want under Ron and Rand.

And BTW If your going to try that kind of stunt; and least make sure you get a refundable ticket.

Windows 8 Changes Host File Blocking

Fujisawa Sensei Re:Nope (1030 comments)

I specifically stated Ubuntu, and not the others.

I spent more than a year on Kubuntu and was never happy with it. And I still use Ubuntu everyday as well. At least I can install the KDE apps I want.

For other systems I switched to OpenSUSE more than a year ago and life is very good. Personally I have no use for the *buntu family.

Fujisawa Sensei Nope (1030 comments)

Still not a reason to switch to Ubuntu. Especially with the new tablet optimized desktop.

Paul Ryan's Record On Science and Government

Fujisawa Sensei All Praise the Tea Party and Bush (543 comments)

If you think you're paying high taxes now, just join the investor class and just pay 15% capital gains taxes; I'm pretty certain that would drop your taxes.

Because seriously, thanks to the low capital gains, and the Tax cuts on the top 2%, we have had the best economy since World War two.

Praise to W for lowering the taxes on the Job Providers so that we have this abundance of high paying jobs and low unemployment rate.

Praise to the Tea Party for keeping the taxes low on the top 2% and continuing the low unemployment rate.

Praise the conservatives for making sure that marriage is just as sacred as it was in the time of King David and preventing those homosexuals from disgracing changing it as always been defined.

4th Amendment doesn't apply to private business interactions.

You don't want to pay the $60/month, there's a simple solution: use different carrier.

High Security Handcuffs Opened With 3D-Printed and Laser-Cut Keys

Fujisawa Sensei Re:I'll take The Macallan (202 comments)

Regular strength, cask strength, as long as it's at least 12 years old, and not Fine Oak, I'll take it.

So I'm not exactly a picky Macallan drinker.

Can a Regular Person Repair a Damaged Hard Drive?

Fujisawa Sensei Captain Obvious (504 comments)

Your answer is fucking worthless after the fact insight.

The fact is the shit is not backed up, the user wants is back, and is trying to repair the drive after the fact.

So telling them to back their shit up is completely irrelevant to the issue at hand.

Skype Bug Sends Messages To Random Contacts

Fujisawa Sensei How about the exit button? (77 comments)

How about fixing the red exit button so that when I click it the application actually exits, and doesn't keep running in the background, so I have to exit it again, and the confirm?

And before I hear the whiners say:"That's what its supposed to do". I say inability to exit the application with one click is a fucking bug.

How the Inventors of Dragon Speech Recognition Technology Lost Everything

Fujisawa Sensei I hope they get it, and more (606 comments)

I hope they get the full billion+ lawyers fees.

I also hope the GS representatives are charged with felony fraud, and their assets frozen so they have to rely on disinterested public defenders.

Yeah, I can dream.

UK Judge: Galaxy Tab "Not Cool" Enough To Infringe iPad

Fujisawa Sensei Apple's not cool anymore (325 comments)

Apple's not cool anymore.

With their domination of the tablet market, the fanatical following of their phones, and the dominance of the portable music devices, not to mention their obsession with being cool; these factors can only lead me to one conclusion: Apple is not cool anymore.

Simply because its not cool to be part of the herd. And The Cult of the Fruit is one big herd.

UK Judge: Galaxy Tab "Not Cool" Enough To Infringe iPad

Fujisawa Sensei This is a judge (325 comments)

So you're telling me that you're going to accept a judges opinion on what's cool?

I'm friends with a few judges and retired judges, nice guys, but I'm not taking advice on what's cool from them.

Sorry fuckers, it doesn't get any nerdier that following up on a 1974 vintage space opera, that is still producing stuff. Why they fuck did these alleged nerds never mention Dai Yamato, Yamato Resurrection, or the live action schitt?
