The Shale Boom Won't Stop Climate Change; It Could Make It Worse

Gallomimia IF!? (388 comments)

If total methane leakage—from drilling through end use—is greater than about 4 percent

IF?? It's a lot more than 4% now. Companies are not properly regulated, and do not properly report when they blast a few thousand cubic meters of unprocessed gas straight into the atmosphere. All of your speculation and statistics is for naught. Get away from us. We only want news, not spin doctors. I thought this site was about InfoTech not people stupid enough to chain themselves to a tree and believe its going to stop big business. We all know what dollars can do to an industry because we all see what Microsoft and now Apple are doing to ours. Go back to your tree.

pretty sure if that comet comes in earth's orbit the last thing we will be worrying about is a few kilograms of plutonium on its surface.

Wind Power Is Cheaper Than Coal, Leaked Report Shows

Gallomimia Why is Leaked still a Thing? (610 comments)

I'm having some trouble fathoming how a report like this can ever have a status of "leaked" when it should clearly be public knowledge. Why wasn't this done years and years ago by someone independent? A quick browse through the report shows that data does not appear to be difficult to acquire. In fact, my local authority (bchydro.com) has a lot of this data for their jurisdiction on their website. It makes me wonder if the governments of Canada and the US have this stuff freely available online where one doesn't even have to phone and give credentials before obtaining it.

So why is this report by a thinktank being kept secret? Because they were paid to do so, that's why.

But why is no one outside the paid-thinktanks coming up with any of these kinds of conclusions? Really, do we have to pay people to think now too?

German Court: Google Must Stop Ignoring Customer E-mails

Gallomimia Re:well done mods. (290 comments)

We been sending mail to that address for years now complaining about your stupid interface updates. We keep getting responses back saying we won't answer because we're too busy happily coding your favorite minimalist website presentation into a clown festival of pop culture! Can we take you to german court for it?

Swedish Dad Takes Gamer Kids To Warzone

Gallomimia Re:Gettin All Up In Yo Biznis (419 comments)

Great dad, in my opinion. My kids grew up involved in hunting, fishing, and shooting sports - but a trip to a refugee camp would probably have cured them of the FPS BS faster than anything.

Fortunately, they were never really into videogames.

And everyone who thinks he was wrong is an idiot, who lives in a fantasy world where making sure children are never exposed to violence will produce a world where there is never violence. The only way to stop violence is to be sure that everyone can defend themselves, educate everyone regarding why violence shouldn't be done, and the effect it has on others, and by removing the reasons to do violence in our society, eg scarcity.

Anita Sarkeesian, Creator of "Tropes vs. Women," Driven From Home By Trolls

Gallomimia Re: Her work (1262 comments)

Im not sure the male gender has much to feel insulted about considering what it as done. I cannot think of an insult that is worse than that history. Or, a man can choose to not identify with that stereotype and strike out on their own and try to be a good person. To do that, they must keep an open mind, and herein lies the problem.

Google Will Give a Search Edge To Websites That Use Encryption

Gallomimia Re:Cat blog (148 comments)

So, what you're saying here is you're running a cat pornography site and you don't want regulations to stipulate that only cats of age can view said material and therefore will require a login and identity verification which will raise development costs and put you out of business? I think a warrant is in order sir...

With Chinese Investment, Nicaraguan Passage Could Dwarf Panama Canal

Gallomimia No one cares how bad an idea this is? (322 comments)

First of all, lets look at some maps. Go on. Click on some maps. What continent is Nicaragua in folks? Central America, a bit north of Panama. Look at all the green. That country has tons of nature preserves! Look at it all. Find yourself a nice easy route through that country as if you're planning a canal from one coast to the other. Compare it to the length of the Panama Canal which is easily seen by the roads marked beside it. Any way you slice it the distance is like 3-4x as long! And it crosses thru a big lake or a a huge animal sanctuary! This is going to mess up the landscape a bit folks, and between my thoughts of "unnecessary" and "crazy capitalist pigs" I can't come up with a reason for doing any of it. The Panama Canal is important. Saves journeys around the whole of South America or North America, each of which reach toward the poles and icy passages and dangerous sailing. Why do we need two? What military advantage could it possibly serve if the enemies of America had this canal at the start of the war? It won't last long. If the US can't control it with their military and use it for themselves, they'll just drop a couple nukes at either end and watch all those farmlands flood with salt water. I think this is a huge undertaking with little to no real gain.

California Man Sues Sony Because Killzone: Shadowfall Isn't Really 1080p

Gallomimia Don't think "Harmed" (286 comments)

The description in the OP is pretty harsh in saying he's claiming he was harmed by this. I doubt that very much, but indeed this is false advertising and we won't put up with it.

Of course, have you noticed that we all take issues with our video games ultra seriously, like it's a super big deal man, but if shit goes totally sideways for some people locked in their country with bombs raining from overhead, or starving to death, or having acid sprayed at them for wanting to *LEARN*, or cutting themselves picking up sharp metal objects out of trash at age 6 for a meal every day, well that's unfortunate and maybe we should go play some video games to make ourselves feel better.
