Study: Chimpanzees Have Evolved To Kill Each Other

Guy From V Re:Not just Chimps and Humans (202 comments)

IMHO wild canid (i.e. wolf) pack mentality and hierarchy is much more complex and nuanced than the primate model, I'd even go out o a limb and say it's probably much more "evolved". Wolves are highly social, even more so than most primates, and exhibit a mosaic of harder-to-describe interaction such as pity, shame, the ability to "agree yo disagree", vastly intricate verbal and nonverbal communication (moreso than most animals) - shown most obviously in the number of different howls ...and practiced deception plus forgiveness and atonement. I don't have a specific link or citing for what I'm saying but I have studied this subject for a few years on and off online and in print. Primate social interaction seems simplistic and lacking comparatively.

New Details About NSA's Exhaustive Search of Edward Snowden's Emails

Guy From V Add One More "least untruth" (200 comments)

In response to a FOIA request a ProPublica journalist filed for just this kind of information last year, the NSA told him they couldn't do those kind of searches that they apparently just did. Well, dang...it's a good thing that they figured out they could, I mean gosh...if they'd just got it squared away last year then we'd have known a lot earlier how clean their hands were in all this.

L.A. Times National Security Reporter Cleared Stories With CIA Before Publishing

The 2nd Amendment is still a somewhat sturdy foundation for a failing 1st, though it's begun to show some hairline cracks that need to be shored up posthaste.

Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

Guy From V One Angry Gamer (1134 comments)

These search results on the One Angry Gamer website about The Fine Young Capitalists game dev team (who also happen to be women, some might remember them as the team who wrote the game Depression Quest), who got blackballed by unscrupulous writers for a handful of well-known gaming and tech review outfits because of the second-rate "escapades" of one Zoe Quinn and her "relations" with several of them. Ironically, it was 4chan who stepped up to raise $5,000 to fund them when the rest of the community dropped them like a sack of shit because of Ms. Quinn and her "conspirators' " favoritism. PS quotes=sexual escapades and pillow talk railroading.

Plan Would Give Government Virtual Veto Over Internet Governance

Guy From V Virtual Veto? (65 comments)

Is this functionally the same as a meatspace veto? What about a holistic immersion filibuster via TRON-esqye deconstructing LASERs?

Is Storage Necessary For Renewable Energy?

Guy From V Re:Expert?? (442 comments)

This is taken from an article named Engineering.com...in my fantasy world this article would have some basis grounded in reality. I've learned the hard way that this isn't always the case, however.

Snowden Granted 3 More Years of Russian Residency

Guy From V Re:Meanwhile ... (266 comments)

The Bill of Rights makes clear distinction between a US citizen and "persons". The fact that terrorists all happen to be people (in theory at least) means that the restrictions that are imposed upon the federal government and the NSA by the Constitution in what it can and can't do in it's mandate concerning all people, not just citizens, means that just because they are evil bastards deserving of nothing but contempt and they themselves would like nothing more that to NOT be grouped in with their enemies...just as most of the rest of the "people" they victimize would like as well...it remains that the NSA's unlawful transgressions were committed upon the whole of humanity which is supposed to be shielded from the actions they secretly and illegally violated. The point I'm making being that just because the group they fucked over in violation of their ban happened to ALSO include terrorists should be a distant second afterthought of the revelation, in a perverse inversion of lawful and altruistic intentions of the document's letter and spirit (indeed more like our enemies' rationalization of their own actions) that they made no distinction between their charges and quarry. It really would have been difficult to reveal their vile actions when all persons they fucked over, bad guys or good, all require the use of common methods of communication whether they are evil murdering fucks or paragons of virtue who rescue kittens from trees. Or whatever and shit...

Gaza's Only Power Plant Knocked Offline

Guy From V Please Explain This Crap (868 comments)

Please, someone explain to me how seemingly rational and normal people who seem to have it all together and seemingly hold a good sum of beliefs that can be called measured and critical can demonize Israel for defending themselves...in an amazingly measured manner I must say...in a lion's den of homicidal and genocidal area of the world against a people who will accept nothing but their destruction (it's in their charter or something) when all these other dudes (who happen to be a designated terrorist organization) by NATO..I think, at least by the US)...and.... ...you know what, fuck it. People who complain about Israel and make martyrs out of HAMAS are truly fucking deluded or stupid.

"Magic Helmet" For F-35 Ready For Delivery

Lol, nice. Can it, at least, maybe use the EC to mask it's own signature it's putting out? That would be like covering up your own footsteps by yelling I guess, heh.

"Magic Helmet" For F-35 Ready For Delivery

Guy From V Re:Bugs... (184 comments)

It depends on what role they want the F-35 to play, I've seen that it was designed alternatively either as a fighter or multirole aircraft. As a swing-role or multirole craft this could easily dominate. As a fighter, that is harder to see for the very reasons you brought up...size, drag etc...but the stealth and electronic warfare packages, which I assume this helmet plays a major role in monitoring and interfacing, might be a trump card that overcomes it's deficiencies in air-to-air and air superiority combat.

Smart Gun Maker Filed For 'Remote Kill Switch' Patent

Guy From V Guy From V writes  |  about 4 months ago

Guy From V (1453391) writes "Discovered by a reader over at TTAG. Though filed for in 2006, and received in 2008, the maker of the first marketable (therefore possibly mandatory by force of law) firearm with what is considered smart gun tech, this remote transmitting device patent patent from Armatix is exemplary of why many consider this technology an affront to the Bill of Rights and the 2nd Amendment."

Charles Carreon Finally Surrenders In Epic Legal Battle With The Oatmeal

Guy From V (1453391) writes "Charles Carreon, zany lawyer and poster-child for the Streisand Effect (sorry Babs) for his lawsuit against The Oatmeal creator Mattew Innman last year in his original role as legal counsel for Funnyjunk, as reported by ArsTechnica, seems to have finally called it quits. In other news, the River Styx has reportedly dropped below 32 degrees Fahrenheit."
