Apple's "Warrant Canary" Has Died

HornWumpus Re:There is no "almost impossible" (215 comments)

Your shopping at the wrong places. $5 will get you a pipe wrench at Harbor Freight. Useless for plumbing, but great for braining someone.

HornWumpus Re: Obama is but a puppet (215 comments)

And just as the we will never win the 'war on poverty'. They will just redefine poverty, again.

Netropolitan Is a Facebook For the Affluent, and It's Only $9000 To Join

HornWumpus Re:Which Orchestra? (151 comments)

So this is intended as a place for rich fags to discuss/swap rent boys? Makes a tiny bit more sense, but even there I don't see them spending this kind of money.

Netropolitan Is a Facebook For the Affluent, and It's Only $9000 To Join

HornWumpus Re:Trolling the rich (151 comments)

Not their worry. They would just ban the 4chan account.

The worry is TMZ buying in and lurking for years without disrupting.

More basically this will never work. The rich didn't get rich by pissing money away on truly brain dead things. That's for their grand-kids to do.

HornWumpus Re:This is how you make it (151 comments)

His business plan is to 'take money from the poor', so yes he's never made any money. Note: First world 'poor' aren't really poor. You can't be both poor and fat. First world 'poor' have nice disposable incomes and are dumb as rocks.

Inside Shenzen's Grey-Market iPhone Mall

HornWumpus Re:Part of the defamed "e-waste" culture (47 comments)

You need to get out more. Tinkerers still tinker. You couldn't stop us with explosive tamper resistant enclosures. Yes I'm old, but I know lots of kids who also wrench their cars. Go to an autocross event or a drag race.

These days you upload a new fuel map to your ECU. But it's not fundamentally different from changing jets on a carb.

New Study Projects World Population of 11B by 2100

HornWumpus Re:No, It Won't (292 comments)

Not sure what the population of China was back then. The Chinese certainly owe a lot to capitalism. So would the Indians if they ever got the hang of it. But that would allow the bramen to fail, so it can't be allowed.

1 trillion dollars is 1000 billion dollars. But 1 trillion euros is 1000 million euros.

What they said appears to have made them _more_ popular. So they will be forced off the air.

Use of Forced Labor "Systemic" In Malaysian IT Manufacturing

HornWumpus Re:"forced labor" (182 comments)

Every place is not the same. Whoever told you they were is making money off your mental defeat. Don't listen to a word they say; ever again. Even if it's a voice in your head.

HornWumpus Re:"forced labor" (182 comments)

If you work someplace that bad, get a new fucking job.

It's not like actual Stalinism, you don't go to the Gulag for trying to leave.

That's one (of many) good thing about capitalism, corporations aren't alone you can vote with your feet.

Use of Forced Labor "Systemic" In Malaysian IT Manufacturing

HornWumpus Re:"forced labor" (182 comments)

There are many morons who make more then minimum. They aren't worth it.

That said. A moron that shows up on time and sober when scheduled will be making more than minimum in 6 months, tops.

I use the phrase 'giving blowjobs to customers' when talking about marketers of any gender. Politicians are just marketers with an army to back them up.

Australian Police Arrest 15, Charge 2, For Alleged Islamic State Beheading Plot

HornWumpus Re:Thought crime (153 comments)

In college we plotted the death of Prof Reddenburg in detail. He taught electric fields. Nobody actually did anything and he retired shortly thereafter, leaving the class in the hands of a non senile teacher.

Australian Police Arrest 15, Charge 2, For Alleged Islamic State Beheading Plot

HornWumpus Re:At least they were arrested (153 comments)

You'd be wrong. Of course the death penalties are typically met out by Israeli soldiers/citizens/EMP bomb detonators.
