Scientists Take Charles Darwin On the Road

Grapplebeam "Darwinian Ministry" (170 comments)

Yeah, I can say stupid bullshit about people I disagree with too, fundies. I think you shouldn't be allowed to breed so your stupidity doesn't end up in the gene pool for another generation. The hell is with these people, anyways?

EFF Advocates Leaving Wireless Routers Open

Grapplebeam Re:Oh hell no. (686 comments)

No, people are inherently selfish. The trick is that no one has ever been convinced on a wide scale the government is more important to their interests than getting stuff in the here and now. Evil is perspective.

Chinese Censors Crack Down on Time Travel

Grapplebeam This story would be banned (154 comments)

Since it's an old story, it must have time travelled to now.

Threatening YouTube Video Lands Man In Prison

Grapplebeam Re:meanwhile.... (243 comments)

Which is funny, generally they're more interested in regulating all speech rather than cutting out the middle man and regulating our morals.

Using Fusion To Propel an Interstellar Probe

Grapplebeam When this fails (155 comments)

And they combine the knowledge from both Daedalus and Icarus, I'm guessing they'll call it Helios. Wild guess.

Afghanistan Called First "Robotic War"

Grapplebeam Someone once said (288 comments)

That the more machines you have in an army, the easier it becomes to go to war, as you don't have to worry about the loss of human life on your side.

Google's Driverless Car and the Logic of Safety

Grapplebeam I'm fine with this (510 comments)

Until it becomes mandated and I can't drive. I enjoy driving. I also understand most people would take the alternative to having to do it themselves if given the chance. Which is good, because a lot of them suck at driving. Of course, I'll die, and this generation will be fine with it because they grew up with it.

Robert Bunsen, Open Source Pioneer?

Grapplebeam Everything was open source (127 comments)

Before patents. The real lesson here is people were obtaining patents on things they didn't invent even back then.

Breaking Into the Super Collider

Grapplebeam Can we expect... (168 comments)

A fourty page, peer reviewed paper on how their application of force against the garage door they broke in through will revolutionize breaking and entering?

Grapplebeam To be fair... (174 comments)

Had they actually completed such a task, they'd be able to gain the allegiance of a few American cities, wholesale.

Blogger Fined $60K For Telling the Truth

Grapplebeam Re:Johnny Northside is not a victim. (433 comments)

So because you don't like him, he should be punished with bad laws? The ACLU would like to have a word with you. Civil liberties aren't for YOU, they're to protect others from you.

Blogger Fined $60K For Telling the Truth

Grapplebeam Re:As an example (433 comments)

What? That's how the current system works. Why do you think we have so many repeat offenders? It's because the prison industry is built to bring those people right back in. So people being marked for life because of an earlier crime happens all the time. And I thought you still had to mention you were once a criminal on your resume even if you were declared innocent later. So yes, bringing up the past is standard practice.

Kinect Self-Awareness Hack

Grapplebeam This is news? (82 comments)

Because it looks like comedy. In fact, it is comedy, and not news. It's not news about comedy either, just comedy. Which is tragic.

Old Man Murray Wikipedia Controversy Continues

Grapplebeam Was first on Rock Paper Shotgun (173 comments)

And I was figuring it'd be the last place we heard about it. Slow news day? Or... month? Since it was restored a while ago. It's certainly notable, and the moderator that wants it gone is just on a power trip. So, yeah. Whateva.

Tsunami Warnings Now Faster, More Accurate

Grapplebeam Re:Thank goodness for NOAA (135 comments)

Well, telling someone something enough times can actually get them to believe it, otherwise no one would think Obama is Kenyan. Repeat something too much, and you begin to believe it yourself. Anyways, he, or one of his "friends" probably has a private company ready to take over as soon as the NOAA funding is cut. They'll only charge two to twelve times the original price- what a steal!
