Your 60-Hour Work Week Is Not a Badge of Honor

HellYeahAutomaton Re:Stop inviting it (717 comments)

I don't buy into the whole shared misery concept. Perhaps thats why I disasgree with so many of the slashdot liberals.
Why should I be happy about your allegedly high quality of life subsidized by your crotchfruit?

Your 60-Hour Work Week Is Not a Badge of Honor

HellYeahAutomaton Re:Stop inviting it (717 comments)

The next time you say "Taking my son to xyz." Say it like it was wonderful and not like it's an excuse.

And make sure you're not in earshot of anyone actually doing work who resents you for it while you're off having a grand old time.

Your 60-Hour Work Week Is Not a Badge of Honor

HellYeahAutomaton Re:Another type that is interesting... (717 comments)

Nothing you do is so important that it is an emergency.

People live and die every day, so don't give me that "life or death" excuse.

Slashdot Tries Something New; Audience Responds!

HellYeahAutomaton Re:I understand (2219 comments)

Judging by your last dozen posts, you're a real fanboy of the new design.

I assume you're the only paid shill they could get to suck on it.

Meh, OK so since 1997, you haven't implemented account deletion. Perhaps this is a feature to consider working on before making the look and feel of the site frou-frou.

HTML5 App For Panasonic TVs Rejected - JQuery Is a "Hack"

HellYeahAutomaton Re:Panasonic has a TV app store? (573 comments)

jQuery always has been a hack, but it is a very good hack.

To be fair tho, you are playing within their walled garden. It's a good thing that you've pointed this out to all of us tho, to shame them.

Marc Andreessen On Why Bitcoin Matters (And A Critique)

HellYeahAutomaton Re:Bitcoin is not going to last... (332 comments)

I'll make it clear for you: The government is already stealing over 70% of my stuff in day to day life, if you count income tax, property, consumption (sales) tax, and taxes on taxes.

While they make it more organized with a paper trail, it still doesn't make it anything less than theft.

HellYeahAutomaton Re:Bitcoin is not going to last... (332 comments)

If I'm poor enough I'll have nothing to steal. Which is what government tries to do now anyhow.

It's not my failure to understand that you and your ilk are douchebags trying to enslave us all.

Marc Andreessen On Why Bitcoin Matters (And A Critique)

HellYeahAutomaton Re:Bitcoin is not going to last... (332 comments)

You can already pay plenty to have a private security firm defend you.

In addition to the lip service I get from a government, effectively making me pay for it twice, once from a service I didn't ask for or want, and then once again through the service of my choosing.

The thing is you ultra-libertarians suffer exactly the same flaws as really staunch communists. Both of you believe that people are better than they are.

Oh no, I believe in the worst in people, which we already have. I will be more rich than I am now to pay the thugs of my choosing instead of the thugs that you and others would choose for me.

Marc Andreessen On Why Bitcoin Matters (And A Critique)

HellYeahAutomaton Re:Bitcoin is not going to last... (332 comments)

You are naive. Without government "violence" , "theft" and "coercion", there is nothing stopping someone bigger and stronger using violence, theft and coercion to take all of your stuff.

That's a choice I'd like to make for myself, and not one made for me, thank you very much.

And no, you cannot defend yourself, since you're not the most powerful person. There will always be someone bigger and stronger.

You support monopolies on violence and I do not. I'd like competition on price for whoever would be needed to defend me, and not have to pay twice (or more times) for the same level of service.

HellYeahAutomaton Re:Bitcoin is not going to last... (332 comments)

This is the downfall of these current generation of digital currencies, they aren't anonymous and untraceable enough yet.

Sadly, Glenn Fleishman suggests to resort to the use of violence (recourse in a court system, based on government theft and coercion) in order to seek a "remedy" to these problems, whereas many would rather see people be more careful with their transactions and keeping the government out of them (wherever possible).

Assaulted for wearing a hat

HellYeahAutomaton HellYeahAutomaton writes  |  more than 2 years ago

HellYeahAutomaton (815542) writes "While walking out, Ron Dusavitch, a bailiff, yelled to me from behind, “TAKE YOUR HAT OFF!”

“I’m leaving, sir.” I replied.
“TAKE YOUR HAT OFF!” he repeated.
“LEAVING, sir.” I replied again, still walking out the door, minding my own business to get out of the building and on with my day. Ron had other plans.
Ron LEPT into action and RAN across the courtroom (See top left corner of video at 0:21) and JUMPED into the hallway. He tackled me by pushing me up against the wall and held me there with his hands on my shoulder and bicep.
“Take your hat off,” Ron the Hero again commanded...."

Ron Paul grassroots internet campaign is surreal.

HellYeahAutomaton HellYeahAutomaton writes  |  more than 6 years ago

HellYeahAutomaton (815542) writes "Last night I was watching and participating in the Ron Paul Tea Party 07 for presidential candidate Ron Paul. The event strategically coincided with the Boston Tea Party anniversary. The experience last night was a sick and twisted cross between rabid Amiga fanaticism (back in the day) and the hopefuls for Red Sox Nation on their 1918-2004 losing streak of winning a world series. In a matter of hours I watched the ticker go up a million dollars and then a million again. The buzz on the IRC channel #ronpaulradio and their web radio coverage Ron Paul Radio was surreal. I've always been a registered Republican, but voted for the libertarian Badnarik in the last election. Two of his controversial platforms is to dismantle the IRS, and pulling out of Iraq, which many libertarians are supportive of. Are these the primary reason that the mainstream media is not covering/censoring him, and can the $18 million he's raised actually give him a fighting chance?"
