Another WW-I Chemical Site In Washington, DC

Hubbell Re:I've got a genius idea, too (249 comments)

That collapse was caused by the government. They created the situation where they could be called in to save the day while denying they had any role in the event happening in the first place.

How Did Wikileaks Do It?

Hubbell Re:Not true (973 comments)

FWIW, they were probably FAR FAR FAR away. They would fire their cannon, and 2-3 seconds later the rounds would hit. That's pretty fucking far.

Sci-Fi Writer Peter Watts Convicted of Assault

Hubbell Re:the facts of the case (381 comments)

I'm just going to come out and say it for everyone else. You and the rest of jurors are useless fucking assholes and one of the main reasons I hope to god I never have to face a jury of my 'peers' I don't even need to explain why your explanation makes this case even more fucked up because it should be clear as day to anyone who read your post.

Why Are There No Popular Ultima Online-Like MMOs?

Hubbell Re:UO wasn't that much fun really (480 comments)

2+on1 should be the most fun fights. The problem is wow is entirely based on class/item/level, with an incredibly minimal amount on playerskill. The lack of collision detection (aka the game is all based on autohit so you can't dodge anything manually) makes the class/item/level based existence even more solidified. In games like Asheron's Call and now Darkfall Online not only are the games less based on character skill/items/level, you can manually dodge most (in AC) or ALL (in Darkfall) attacks if you were good enough. My favorite fights in AC were on my level 140 (max level was 245, you would earn experience and 'buy' points into each skill on a diminishing return curve, each point costing more than the next, last 5 points costing more than the previous 200 or so) fighting 5-15on1 against levels 120-245.

Somali Pirates Open Up a "Stock Exchange"

Hubbell Re:Paging Bernie Madoff Clients... (666 comments)

Economic aid is the major problem with africa today outside of the face that the colonial powers back in the day provided them with an instant technological jump across several ages without the corresponding cultural changes that took place allowing for those changes back home.

Do you think people on welfare care about getting a job when they know they'll keep getting free money for doing absolutely nothing? Stop giving africa money and give them a 1 shot chance at learning to take care of themselves through farming and the like. If they don't take it, oh well, sometimes you need to walk away and cut your losses.

Obama Wants Computer Privacy Ruling Overturned

Hubbell Re:I am shocked! (670 comments)

The desire for the people to defend themselves from a tyrannical government which was overstepping it's bounds was THE reason for support of the 2nd amendment, everything else was just fluff. They had just finished fighting a war for their independence from just such a government and knew that the people NEEDED that ability to keep checks on their government when the time came again for such an event.

The Mass Production of Living Tissue

Hubbell Re:If ever I heard an argument (157 comments)

Blaming it as the foreskin #1 contains a shitload of nerves, and #2 prevents the excessive rubbing against clothing and such and thereby dulling the nerves that are left.

The Mass Production of Living Tissue

Hubbell Re:If ever I heard an argument (157 comments)

I don't feel anything on my cock when I'm having sex other than warmth/wetness, there is no pleasurable feeling on it except the head when having an orgasm. The only way I can even orgasm while having sex is by grinding once all the way in and feeling my girl against me around my dick, mostly between it and my legs. I love getting head but only from watching it occur because otherwise I don't feel a fucking thing almost except, as previously stated, during orgasm.

Computer Failure Causes Gridlock In MD County

Hubbell Re:Roundabouts (483 comments)

There are so few in america, or atleast here in connecticut, that they don't even TALK about them in driving schools, atleast not the one I went to. I live down the street from one (1mile away) and the number of assholes who don't know how to drive in them even though the entrance is clearly marked YIELD people still blow into them, and people in them still stop for those at the entrances. The number of times I've wanted to gun it instead of braking and just pushing the person in front of me over the 40ft steep drop on one side of the circle are too high to count.

Chinese To Supply 600 MW Wind Farm In Texas

Hubbell Re:How is that sustainable? (453 comments)

Unions served their purpose a long time ago, but now merely exist to grab as much money as they can without giving a shit about the consequences as well as to pay exorbinant amounts to those running them.

Yale has unionized cleaning staff, and while I worked in two different finished buildings there doing renovation work as a union carpenter, their staff would work for approximately 2 hours of their 8 hour day on a good day and spent the rest either sleeping or congregating where they knew a 'boss' wouldn't find them and just bullshitting for hours. It was the biggest joke I've ever seen.

My union has our local's president driving an expensive sports car, the union cutting benefits and pushing up the age for retirement to get your full pension, whilst we had over 1400 members out of work across the 3 locals in the state.

Unions for a long time now stopped being a good thing and are now just a money grabbing operation that exist to increase wages far higher than they SHOULD be, especially for people who don't deserve a job in the first place.

1Mb Broadband Access Becomes Legal Right In Finland

Hubbell Re:You're actually right (875 comments)

What about when the NHS was denying glaucoma patients a drug that would save their vision because they had decided that you had to lose one eye entirely to it before you could get the drug?

1Mb Broadband Access Becomes Legal Right In Finland

Hubbell Re:You're actually right (875 comments)

My liberty ends where yours begins. Perfect freedom is to do whatever the fuck you want UNLESS you are directly causing harm to another or impinging upon their freedom, so your bullshit hypothetical about punching someone in the face is a straw man of the highest order. When will people stop making utterly asinine situations/analogies and just talk about facts?

Early Look At EVE Creators' DUST 514

Hubbell Re:Eurogamer = Not Professional (81 comments)

The second 'review' was not even a legitimate review, almost the entirety of it was apologizing/explaining away the first review. The first one was almost entirely made up, the second one was just a poor covering their asses sham.

Report Claims Iran Has Data To Build a Nuclear Bomb

Hubbell Re:Not the first middle east nuke (630 comments)

"Yes, but Israel deserves a much higher level of trust than Iran. Even in the 1973 war, when Israel was facing defeat - and a defeat would have meant, literally, annihilation - Israel did not use its nukes (and it almost certainly had them by then)."

They almost did. It's a long standing and well known fact that if Israel is about to be defeated they will launch all their nukes at those attacking them.

Early Look At EVE Creators' DUST 514

Hubbell Eurogamer = Not Professional (81 comments)

After their review of Darkfall Online, which also happened to be the first time I heard of them, I'll never read or give a shit about a review by them. The chief editor for Eurogamer sided with the reviewer when called out by not only Tasos, lead 'PR' person for Darkfall who claimed to have server logs showing the guy hadn't even played the game, but hundreds of eurogamer readers and even more Darkfall players who almost unanimously agreed it was impossible for the guy to have played the game and still write the review he did as nearly none of it was based in any fact.

Fossil Primate Ardipithecus Ramidus Described (Finally)

Hubbell Re:Birthers, deathers, and other wingnuts (369 comments)

What about the fact that he was using an indonesian passport in the 80's to travel to countries in that region of the world which meant he revoked his US citizenship, and has never retaken the oath of citizenship or whatever it is that's required to regain your citizenship?

Leading Scientist Comes Out Against Global Warming

Hubbell Hubbell writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Hubbell writes "John Christy has recently testified before Congress on the fact that most data presented to promote the hysteria behind man-made global warming is in fact fraudulent, and very blatantly so. He has also been interviewed by Fortune explaining why the climate change frenzy is entirely unwarranted and perhaps even dangerous."

New Bill Aimed At Criminalizing 'Flaming'

Hubbell Hubbell writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Hubbell writes " DailyTech is running an article on bill 'H.R. 1966, originally filed on April 2, will make it a felony if the messages have "the intent is to coerce, intimidate, harass, or cause substantial emotional distress to a person." People using electronic means to harass others face possible fines or jail sentence up to two years, or both.'
To date, the bill has the support of Sanchez and 14 other members of Congress, with Sanchez continuing to rally support for the bill."

Three Myths About Universal Healthcare

Hubbell Hubbell writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Hubbell writes "In a piece written by Steve Bierfeldt, the man recently held by the TSA in St Louis over having $4700 in cash on him and refusing to answer their demands to know where it came from unless they told him if he legally had to answer the question, the three biggest myths about Universal Healthcare are quite thoroughly debunked and shown to be nothing more than attempts to increase the size of government in the United States."

Europeans looking to ban violent videogames

Hubbell Hubbell writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Hubbell writes "In the wake of the recent shooting spree in Germany, officials across Europe are looking to ban violent games
"Following the shooting rampage carried out yesterday by 17-year-old Tim Kretschmer in Southern Germany, calls have been renewed for government restrictions on violent video games. The President of the German Foundation for Crime, Hans-Dieter Schwind, calls... for a total ban on violent computer games"
How is it that people can still claim that violent videogames cause violence when all studies and statistics show that this simply is not the case?"

Hubbell writes "I originally went to college for a degree in Information Systems, but have decided the codemonkey side of things isn't for me. I've change to going for a 2 semester certification as a Help Desk Technician ending with an internship, and was wondering if this was a wise choice? Should I pursue the college bound certification, or go for it on my own personal time? I'm also intending to personally pursue the A+ and ITIL certifications on my own time, and possibly pursue the CCNA certification on my own time or in a class. What advice would those of you already in this field have for someone just starting to get into it?"
