Blame America For Everything You Hate About "Internet Culture"

GrumblyStuff Re:The French are the world's Standards Board (373 comments)

There has to be at least one!

Maybe set it in the back of the bathroom like so:

This way boys can still test their might and see how far they can peep without hosing a toilet.

Worcester Mass. City Council Votes To Keep Comcast From Entering the Area

GrumblyStuff Re:Awesome quote (232 comments)

I haven't heard as many Charter stories as Comcast ones but hopefully if/when you cancel, they won't be asking for a non-existent modem of theirs.

Nearly 2,000 Chicago Flights Canceled After Worker Sets Fire At Radar Center

GrumblyStuff Re:Striking air traffic controllers fired (223 comments)

Ah, yes, the big, bad UNION . I don't defend them all (police unions are the biggest sacks of unionized assholes in the world) but let's take your Verizon example and switch it up a bit.

Boeing and Microsoft have or are threatening Washington state. Both are doing it for profit for the companies and directly against the interest of their own employees. What about the collusion among tech companies to not hire each other's employees? Why devalue and demonize workers so much? Demand higher standards, absolutely, but understand that sometimes we need to to fight back rather than fighting each other for the scraps.

Apple Outrages Users By Automatically Installing U2's Album On Their Devices

GrumblyStuff Re:Simple (610 comments)

I hate Steam for doing this. All those fucking cards and coupons in my inventory and no option to just delete them. Also, I know it was part of a pack I bought but I know I'm never going to touch Deus Ex Invisible War. Yeah, I know it'd be an extremely rare thing to want to do and more likely to be used for nefarious trolling purposes but still...

I have issues.

Opera Releases a New Version For Linux

GrumblyStuff Re:Mod parent up. (99 comments)

Still on 12 here, too. I'm still a bit miffed that they took the choice away from having tabs below the address bar or having bookmarks or buttons to the right of the main menu or having a dedicated stop loading button from 9 or 10. The only thing keeping me from going Firefox full time is mouse gestures.

Mad Cow Disease Blamed For Patient's Death In Texas

Not quite. Feeding cows to cows had to be explicitly banned by the FDA. Now we feed cows to chickens then feed "poultry litter" to cows. http://www.motherjones.com/tom...

Microsoft Confirms Disconnecting Kinect Gives Devs 10% More GPU Horsepower

GrumblyStuff Re:Poor experience for those that do have kinect (174 comments)

If you design a game that relies on that overhead, then those that don't have it will have a poor experience.

If you design a game that relies on the Kinect, then those players are probably getting a poor experience anyway.

If the Earth Stood Still

GrumblyStuff GrumblyStuff writes  |  more than 4 years ago

GrumblyStuff (870046) writes "What would happen if the Earth stop rotating? Aside having a day that lasts 365 times longer, the approximately 8 km of water that is pushed to the equator would flow north and south, forming polar oceans separated entirely by a ring of land.

The geographic changes were modeled with ArcGIS and can be viewed here. There's no mention of possible weather patterns which would be interesting to try to model with both the geographical changes and year long day."

Coast Guard bans everyone from oiled areas

GrumblyStuff GrumblyStuff writes  |  more than 4 years ago

GrumblyStuff (870046) writes "CNN's Anderson Cooper rages against the Coast Guard, discussing the 65ft ban of photographers and reporters and anyone else who is "unauthorized" around booms and response vessels. To get closer you need to get permission from the Coast Guard Captain of the Port of New Orleans. Violating this can result in $40,000 and felony charges. The Coast Guard originally sought 300ft but scaled it back. Outrageous is an understatement."
