TSA Has Record-Breaking Haul In 2014: Guns, Cannons, and Swords

JustNiz meh. (276 comments)

Anyone who tries to take a gun or chainsaw on a plane is a moron, but making people leave their nail clippers etc is bullshit.
What about martial artists who's hands alone are far more lethal than some stupid pointy keyring? How come they dont stop them from flying? I'm surprised that the TSA hasn't already tried to make everyone fly in handcuffs.

Ask Slashdot: How Should a Liberal Arts Major Get Into STEM?

JustNiz Re:Cheap 2-4 year plus English (280 comments)

This.
It seems to me that developers have a much higher earning potential when they have not only a strong software skills, but also a solid background in another traditionally non-software field (.e.g medicine) so they can talk both languages.

Virtual Reality Experiment Wants To Put White People In Black Bodies

JustNiz The most noticeable thing (448 comments)

If they got to temporarily experience being black, I suspect the thing most white men would most remember is how much blatant racism and sexism black people actually have and get away with.

Federal Court Nixes Weeks of Warrantless Video Surveillance

JustNiz So they were right all along? (440 comments)

>> because Vargas was an undocumented immigrant

Sorry but as a LEGAL immigrant myself, I think this guy gave up any rights when he illegally entered. I also think the cops/feds/whoever should have just locked him up or deported him as soon as they knew he was illegal.

>> They used the video surveillance to obtain a warrant to search his home, which uncovered drugs and guns,

So the cops suspicions were actually right all along then.

In this case and others like it, I think any ruling that supports illegal immigrants that are in posession of drugs and illegal guns is clearly a stupid one.

9th Circuit Will Revisit "Innocence of Muslims" Takedown Order

JustNiz Re:Valid release (158 comments)

Moral judgment doesn't even come itnto it. It depends entirely on the wording in the release. If it placed no limits on the usage or intended purpose and she signed it anyway, then she doesn't have a leg to stand on. Simple.

Sir Richard Branson Quietly Shelves Virgin Submarine Plan

JustNiz suck it up and lets move on people. (47 comments)

>> his plan ... for trips to the edge of space is in jeopardy after the craft crashed during a test flight, killing a pilot.

This is ridiculous. One death and a whole project is in jepaoardy? If previoyus generation had been so risk-averse, the whole of mankind would have never have gotten anywhere. No cars, planes, or even basic surgery.
Suck it up, learn from it and and lets move on, people.

Once Again, Baltimore Police Arrest a Person For Recording Them

JustNiz This (515 comments)

>>> What can people do to curb this problem?

Its very telling that the police force themselves aren't taking any disciplinary or other corrective action on the officers that keep doing this even though they have been told not to.

Conseuqently as the local police chief apparently can't/won't control their own officers to follow the law, the only practical option is to keep legally filming them and then suieing them for everything you can throw at them if they stop you and especially if they illegally mess with and damage your property (i.e. delete files from your phone). That way the economic impact alone will eventually force them to have to change.

I believe but am not 100% sure that you also have every legal right to demand to see a search warrant before you hand your phone over, but of course if you go against a cop in the street, they will probably make your day at least very inconvenient, even if you are actually right.

AMD Offers a Performance Boost, Over 20 New Features With Catalyst Omega Drivers

JustNiz Re:Compared to Catalyst 13.12? (73 comments)

>> Of course, anyone but the absolute most stalwart AMD fan already knew their drivers were rubbish,

I completely agree, however it seems that AMD's customer base is mostly just a cult of drooling fanbois that won't ever agree with anything that is less than stellar praise of AMD and their products, or ever believe that any other manufacturer could ever make anything better.

Its probably a self-fulfilling prohecy that most current AMD customers are like that, because anyone with some actual knowledge of differnet GPUs built up from first-hand experience will have already decided to never buy another AMD product, especially if they are a Linux user.

Apple Accused of Deleting Songs From iPods Without Users' Knowledge

JustNiz What did you expect? (250 comments)

I have literally NO sympathy for complainers that purchase products even knowing ahead of time that they lock you into monoculture that is arbitrarily and completely controlled by a company with a long history of abusing their own customers (e.g. Apple, Microsoft, Sony).

Are they simply meeting the definition of insanity (same action different result) or do they just have such a ridiculously overinflated ego that they seriously expect to be treated better than all the other previously abused customers?
