Survey Finds Cheating Among Students At All GPA Levels
Oh wow, you can talk with a lot more people! I sure feel a lot better about my education stalling. I bet that's what colleges have in mind when they shove courses down our throats that will never be remembered because we only have enough motivation to cram a day before the test and forget it. There's no way it has anything to do with the revenue that they gain from tuition.
Seriously, if I want to learn about history, I'm old enough to research on my own. Colleges are there to confirm that you have the proper knowledge/aptitude within your given field, not make up for a shitty public education system.
Designer Creates "Euthanasia Roller Coaster"
Not to mention it's a pain in the ass. Even if people want to die, it's only to end their suffering, the anticipation of death is still distressful. I'd take the trip to Amsterdam & coke-overdose vacation package over this any day.
Russian President: Time To Reform Copyright
Not that I'm unhappy with the decision, but now when people in the US propose it, they can say "*gasp*! That's communism! Just look, Russia is doing it!" And of course, any attempt to point out that it's been a capitalist country will be in vain.
I've had a personal email account for ...
I thought it said "email accounts for X% of my life", like how Facebook accounts for a % of other peoples' lives. Of course I chose, "I don't have one yet", as in "I still don't have a life".
China Alleged To Use Prisoners In Lucrative Internet Gaming
China's brand of socialism is bullshit. It's plain fascism...
China is a de-facto capitalist country, I hate how people still call the country socialist/communist when they have less industry regulations than the US. Also, Communism has nothing to do with despotism. It's the polar opposite in fact, with the elimination of capital gain to remove the accumulation of power (which is why Karl Marx had en element that could accumulate power removed from each stage of governmental principal).
When it comes to jury service, I ...
Yea, here in the US, you don't have to break the law to avoid jury duty, you just have to be a full time student (lucky for me it's only 12 credits).
My present employer I think will survive ...
Cowboy Neal's Missing Poll Options Inc. will never go out of business!
Steve Jobs: 'We Don't Track Anyone'
Hey guys, you know that profitable thing you think we've been doing? You know, the one that causes bad press. We're totally not doing it.

XXX Goes Live In the Root Servers
This is one of the few "wall of text" posts that I've clicked "read the rest of this comment" to. I suggest everyone else do that same as well, as this is definitely the most informative/insightful post listed here, and I wish they had a hard-to-achieve +6 in the Slashdot system so this would be the most apparent, because it would deserve it.
I communicate with my parents ...
I live in my basement you insensitive clod!
Block Adverts Outside of the Browser
The editors most likely read comments, so why not counter-troll instead of feeding them? I'll start:
There is no way this system would work. I can see large-scale disasters caused by smudges being erroneously generated. No to mention that our current market is run by advertisements. Don't you think that of all ads were blocked, IP would be worthless? Then the US would slowly get poorer as our lack of foresight is clouded by individual gain. This kind of behaviour has to stop.
(note to all wise-asses, yes I know the "YOU ARE ABOUT TO BE TROLLED" method of trolling isn't effective, but I'm just getting the ball rolling)
China To Overtake US In Science In Two Years
It's usually measured by Libraries of Congress of peer-review journals or metric fucktonnes of Graduate student brains, but at the rate we're going, we'll be using the Bricks shit per American.
Cocaine Found At Kennedy Space Center
*snort*. Yep, it's coke.
Android Copy of Danish Man Unveiled
I've bothered to actually watch the fine video, and the movements are still on the near side of the creepy valley.
Saying that it's a bit creepy is like saying that Nazis are a bit anti-semitic. If I saw that thing in my room I wouldn't rest until a priest douses its ashes with holy water.
'Spam King' Released From Prison, Now Lives In Seattle
Guess me and Dorthy better take a vacation to Seattle quick. Dorthy is my pet shotgun.
13 Countries On US "Priority Watch List" For Copyright Piracy
I remember watching a show on knock-off goods sold in China. Some spokesman for Gucci was talking about how they recently made a bust on counterfeit goods and how they potentially earned the company hundreds of thousands of dollars. I couldn't help but laugh at how out-of-touch this dumb-ass was. Does he think honestly think that the country's peasants (who make a big deal out of eating steak with their rice) would save up to buy an authentic Gucci handbag? Similarly, how fucking stupid do you have to be to think that you can stop them from saving money on software. Because that's how they look at it. There are two alternatives in their eyes: free pirated software, and free non-pirated software. No one is going to give two shits about Microsoft's poor employees.
Compared to a year or two ago, I find I'm printing ...
How could you be so environmentally unconscious!? I never print anything unless it's on the skin of an endangered animal with lead paint on a printer that runs on coal. When I finish, I burn the remains, generally taking an acre of pristine rain forest with it (you can't be too safe about protecting your privacy).
Considering the sum of all of my storage devices ...
By importance most of my storage is DNA and cellular
Funny how we take that data for granted. I keep losing mine in my wife. I think my kids may have gotten a hold of it.
Army Psy Ops Units Targeted American Senators
Actually, it's more like conning than selling. Do you actually think that they are required to tell the truth when coercing them? Also, one of the biggest proponents of the 11 billion that the country has pissed away was influenced by the unit, so I'm assuming it may have had at least a little impact. What's also scummy about this is that he explicitly used a unit meant only for the enemy on US citizens (which is EXACTLY what the law says NOT to do). On top of that, in order to can his case, they ruined the career of a female major under him, saying she had inappropriate relationships with him.
