What The Apollo 11 Crew Did For Life Insurance

J4 Re:Its kind of really sad (168 comments)

That attitude is always best coming from people in public service.
Politicians, law enforcement, defense, transportation, education, sanitation, parks.
They seem to think they're different because they don't hate america like the people who pay the majority of their salaries.

NY Times: 'FBI Foils Its Own Terrorist Plots'

J4 Re:Making Up vs. Facilitating (573 comments)

Encouraging a bunch of j*ckoffs who couldn't find their asses with both hands at high noon is bullsh*t propaganda.

The FBI aided the _first_ WTC bomb plot.
The FBI aided Olklahoma City.

Bunch of fscking leeches that need to get real jobs. And stop being such a scared rabbit, America is not supposed the land of pissed pants.

Ask Slashdot: Documenting Scattered Sites and Systems?

J4 Re:How does a "small firm" have so much tech? (114 comments)

Hello Mr Kettle!

This comment may be insightful, but it doesn't address the issue realistically unless one has a time machine.
Bonus points for the irony of complaining about /. answers not providing useful solutions.

Person asks question, discussion ensues, nobody answers the original question as it was asked.
The more things change, the more they stay the same....
