The Hobbit: the Battle of Five Armies Trailer Released

Gothmolly Won't be seeing it (153 comments)

I'm not going to watch "Tauriel" or the Dwarves split into 2 parties, or the "black arrow" nonsense, or how Bard is really like Robin Hood.

The first movie was a stretch, the second was bullshit.

Smoking Mothers May Alter the DNA of Their Children

Gothmolly It takes a village, but all cultures are equal (155 comments)

I'm torn on this one. On 1 hand, anything a mother does has to be right by default, and all cultures and belief systems are equally valid, and feelings trump cold hard facts, but this seems pretty damning. How is a 21st century white guy supposed to react to this completely obvious news? Where do I focus my outrage?

The Misleading Fliers Comcast Used To Kill Off a Local Internet Competitor

Gothmolly Uneducated, lazy consumers (250 comments)

People didn't look, or think, they just reacted from their gut. Sounds like perfectly trained American voters/consumers.

Who's the villain here?

New SSL Server Rules Go Into Effect Nov. 1

Gothmolly Keep a master list (91 comments)

Of hosts, we could even call the file 'hosts'. Then, periodically, you pull a copy from the master to have locally. Simply set up a governing body to arbitrate name clashes (like 'mailserver') and you're good to go!

Google Looking To Define a Healthy Human

Gothmolly Google's off the reservation (125 comments)

They can't do everything, which is going to lead them to doing a lot of things suckily.

How do they actually make money to keep those bazillions of servers running? Does anyone ever actually click on those ads?

Earth In the Midst of Sixth Mass Extinction: the 'Anthropocene Defaunation'

Gothmolly Re:But what IS the point they're making? (333 comments)

That's the sound of you missing the point. TFS goes into great detail about facts of whats happened, then says "which makes the point" - but it never MAKES the point. It's just a groupthink argument that everyone must somehow naturally arrive at the same conclusion.

Earth In the Midst of Sixth Mass Extinction: the 'Anthropocene Defaunation'

Gothmolly But what IS the point they're making? (333 comments)

"Don't build anything, ever, and don't eat any animals, ever" ?

Comet To Make Close Call With Mars

Gothmolly Re:Too bad this didn't happen in 50 years (44 comments)

Too bad the solar wind will ionize and rip away any atmosphere that accumulates due to 1000s of comet impacts. Mars has no deflector shield like Earth has.

China Plans Particle Colliders That Would Dwarf CERN's LHC

Gothmolly Pay people to dig holes, then fill them (218 comments)

They have hundreds of millions of single men which they need to keep employed.

Good thing the US is mortgaging its future to keep China together today.

Privacy Lawsuit Against Google Rests On Battery Drain Claims

Gothmolly Re:Similar argument for desktops (175 comments)

I'm bandwidth-constrained. I'd prefer Windows didn't suck up bytes when I didn't ask it to. Is that so hard?

Gothmolly (148874) writes "Love them or hate them, the GNAA (no link) are as much a part of the Internet as AYBABTU, or the Ha Ha Guy, or Natale Portman. Recently, Wikipedia deleted the entry for the GNAA, the stub page can be found here. Note that AYBABTU and the Ha Ha Guy both have articles, and are similar in scope (Internet memes). Since Wikipedia's Chinese site is different, and article subjects frequently clean up their own articles, is this just another internal-cleanup job by Wikipedia, or is Wikipedia trying to account for taste?"
