How Stanford Engineers Created a Fictitious Compression For HBO

JockTroll Re:The cast (68 comments)

Of course it's not believable. Geeks and nerds are usually portrayed by talented, good-looking actors who play their characters as slightly eccentric enthusiasts who happen to be socially awkward in an endearing way. Nobody pays money or wastes time to see ugly, repulsive abhumans behaving in socially unacceptable ways, stalking women, being rude and obnoxious and talking about crap nobody cares about. Perhaps the most accurate portrayal of a nerd in movies was Scott Weidemeyer from "Zero Charisma", and even there it was radically toned down. Face it, the only way to portray that subculture in media is to simply NOT portraying it at all and showing a falsified and viewer-friendly version. Your typical nerd is not the cast from "The Big Bang Theory". Your typical nerd is Elliot Rodger: a lifelong loser obsessed with niche interests and hollow pursuits, good at nothing, with at most average intelligence and yet cultivating delusions of superiority and seething with rage towards the Real, Beautiful People. Nerds are shunned and derided for good reasons.

Ask Slashdot: Future-Proof Jobs?

JockTroll Re:Simple (508 comments)

Ah, typical mysoginist loserboy nerd. All budding elliot rodgers I see. Did you see yourself when you were reading his ramblings? Shunned, humiliated, unloved? A virgin all your life? You hate women because no woman in her right mind would ever fuck you. No one. You are condemned to a life of unfulfillment and loneliness. Are you planning your day of retribution, loserboy? Come on, I can feel your rage from here. You know, it's kinda fun. It's almost worth a snicker. Enraged now, loserboy? Flap your arms, weirdo, flam them like you used to do when you were hazed and bullied (rightfully so) in school while the pretty girls laughed at you. Do you remember how heartily we all laughed when you were left running the corridors bawling like a little kid in your soiled underwear. Ah, what a riot!

A Skeptical View of Israel's Iron Dome Rocket Defense System

He can go and build a better one. Or he can shut up and suck up the fact that Jews are smarter than euro-derived 'murkins.

Following EU Ruling, BBC Article Excluded From Google Searches

JockTroll Re:Congrats EU (239 comments)

Yes, of course, the EUrocrats do not want people to know too much. The new president Juncker has stated, publicly, that people should not know too much and deals should be made in secret, and the Commission must move past and push its agenda past the point of no return before the populace can understand what's going on. Van Rompuy stated that the EU policies will be fully implemented even against public opinion. In the end, Hitler has won, but this should not be surprising: europeans are nazis, by nature.

Robert McMillen: What Everyone Gets Wrong In the Debate Over Net Neutrality

JockTroll Re:SciFi come to life (270 comments)

And how, exactly, are you going to prevail against Big Money? Just curious. Because one thing Science Fiction rarely address is how should those technological conquests be defended against people whose wealth mean absolute power. When it does, it usually involves powered armour, flamers and the occasional planet-busting weapon.

Age Discrimination In the Tech Industry

JockTroll Re:22 (370 comments)

Most likely, if you're out of work at 30 after working 8 years in the tech industry, you've been replaced by a younger worker who's cheaper and more flexible. IT in particular has no need for talent, know-how and experience, you shovel fresh meat in at one end and shit comes out of the end. That's why computers are for chumps.

HUGO Winning Author Daniel Keyes Has Died

JockTroll Re:Sad, but... (66 comments)

There is nothing that can make a nerd "better". A nerd cannot be anything but a nerd. The only improvement would be feeding it to a woodchipper.

Study: Male Facial Development Evolved To Take Punches

JockTroll More evidence... (190 comments)

... That nerds are not human. Their faces are not evolved this way at all: when punched they either come apart like wet feces or deflate like balloons filled with offal. There are good reasons punches are not used on nerds anymore since a long time. Body blows, arms twisting and headbashings have been the preferred way to deal with the subhuman geeks for years now, although more creative - and definitive - ways are being developed.

Cable Companies Use Astroturfing To Fight Net Neutrality

JockTroll Re:NET NEUTRALITY (142 comments)

You are not anonymous, and never have been. Whenever one of you loserboys is caught, he rats on the others while crapping his pants and crying like the little sissy he is. Do you want change? Dump those stupid Guy Fawkes masks, put on an Obama mask and an explosive jacket and allahuakbarkaboom yourself in some corporation's offices. You will kill some office drones AND cause more social rift that will lead to instability and street violence. They cannot rule on the Net when everybody is out there putting each other's eyes out with screwdrivers, can't they? Stabbings, necklacings, curbstompings and roadside decapitations are exactly what you need. If you're not up to it, eat vaseline and die.

UK Ballistics Scientists: 3D-Printed Guns Are 'of No Use To Anyone'

JockTroll Re:Crowdsourcing (490 comments)

Plans for almost ALL guns are readily available. The firearms market is the closest to open source in real industry, just look at the number of 1911 and SIG Sauer clones around. You can't have many secrets in a device that is meant to be field-stripped for cleaning and that any good gunsmith can fix or modify with some tools. "Mods" like softening up triggers or mag-na-porting have been around forever. Ammo reloading is not some industrial secret. You may have some difficulties making a rifled barrel but it's not overwhelming. Need plans? Google "Metral SMG".

Misogyny, Entitlement, and Nerds

JockTroll Re:Stupid Blame Game (1198 comments)

Rodger was a nerd, a geek, an aspie and therefore a specimen of a subhuman category that doesn't deserve to breathe the same air as we Beautiful People. The sooner society takes on this problem, the better: all nerds, geeks, aspies and assorted lowlifes must be rounded up and brought to concentration camps, preferably near unused abattoires. There they will be terminated by first captive-bolt strike to the forehead and then body crushing via industrial presses. The remains will be disposed of by incineration in a mechanically dug firepit 50 meters long by 30 meters wide by 10 meters deep.

Misogyny, Entitlement, and Nerds

JockTroll Lock up the creeps (1198 comments)

If there's anything proven beyond all doubt by the Elliot Rodger case is that nerds are not only ugly, creepy, repulsive and subhuman but also a danger to all the Beautiful People. This is a cold fact, and it is high time for society to react and ban those lowlife animals from existing within it. Nerds have no place in civilized society, period: they're not cute, they're not "adorkable" (what a stupid portmanteau, asorable != dork) or anything. They're nothing like the media stereotype popularized by shows like "The Big Bang Theory" and played by good-looking and talented actors. The only somewhat realistic portrayal of nerds in media is Scott Weidemeyer from "Zero Charisma" and even that is watered down. Nerds are stupid, foul-looking, annoying and disturbing, they are forever possessed by an immotivated sense of self-entitlement, they're full of anger and envy for the things they can never have because they're fugly and not deserving to live. Round up all those pieces of shit, especially aspies both self-diagnosed and not, and put them into concentration camps for extermination.

Even In the Wild Mice Run In Wheels

JockTroll Re:I'm sedentary (122 comments)

Don't make up any excuses for being a lazy, misshapen tub o' lard. You're a fatso, you're ugly, you're malformed and you reek of stale sweat. Your obscenely distorted body is a gross heap of flaccid flesh, with infected sores festering between the flabs of sweaty, yellowish skin. When you're sitting, your weight threatens to break apart the reinforced chair that should support that pathetic monstruosity that is you, when you "walk", you trundle along on shortened, bent, stubby little legs that look like a Talidomide-generated nightmare. You're probably the inspiration for the DOOM 2 mancubus. Douse yourself on gasoline and set yourself on fire, now.

Gun Rights Groups Say They Don't Oppose Smart Guns, Just Mandates

JockTroll All a matter of niches (584 comments)

If you own firearms that are for sporting use (target shooting, hunting and so on) such a device would be understandable. However, one would have to explain why those weapons aren't locked up. On the other hand, any weapon that is meant for self defence must be brought to use in the shortest time possible and should the device fail-safe, then the weapon would fail-deadly for its owner. Besides, if the technology requires a signal to be transmitted, then it can be jammed. No thanks. You can put them on police or military firearms so gang members or insurgents can't use them but that's all. Now fuck off, all of you. You're ugly and your breath stinks.
