Perhaps its more of a fasion statement than for practicality. Sort of like beats headphones *smirk*.

Protesters Blockade Microsoft's Seattle Headquarters Over Tax Breaks

Karganeth Re:Voliunteer workers for the IRS? (246 comments)

I'm tired of hearing this "companies exist only to maximize profits" garbage. Companies are controlled by people. People do not exist to maximize how much money they can make, therefore they are free to choose to control a company in a way such that it does something less profitable but more moral. There's never any proof that it's why companies exist anyway. It's just an 'edgy' way to look at society ('companies don't care about you, they only want profits'), but where is the proof that companies must maximize profits at all costs? It's just always asserted without any evidence or reasoning. It is a net loss to society if all companies exploited loopholes and so forth.

Bill Gates Wants To Remake the Way History Is Taught. Should We Let Him?

Karganeth Re:So long as it is consential (363 comments)

Why do you have such a problem with the state compelling you to pay for something you might not like? That's the entire basis of the tax system. From what you've written it seems to follow that you're against all taxes.

Anita Sarkeesian, Creator of "Tropes vs. Women," Driven From Home By Trolls

Karganeth Re:Slashdot comments indicative of the problem (1262 comments)

Why is it, when faced with stories like this, is your first instinct to claim that the woman lied or made it up?

Because that woman's name is Anita Sarkeesian. And fwiw I don't think she made it up but I do realize that she THRIVES off conflict like this. She WANTS this shit to happen to her to justify her bullshit. She creates unrest then profits off the conflict.

Karganeth Re:Slashdot comments indicative of the problem (1262 comments)

Why is it, when faced with stories like this, is your first instinct to claim that the woman lied or made it up?

Iti s not because a woman wrote it, its because SARKEESIAN wrote it. FYI she's a fucking professional flamebaiter. She riles people up by creating the most offensive and inflammtry, and MISLEADING videos then cries to the press "help, people are being mean to me". She asked for it and she got it. She WANTS this publicity because it further helps her continue this cycle of bullshit. Do your homework on her before being a SJW (ending your 'people be being mean to her because she woman' ) and you will quickly understand the hatred for her.

1080p is not meaningless. Turn your screen to 3/4ths of its native resolution and see how meaningless that is to you.

Kids With Wheels: Should the Unlicensed Be Allowed To 'Drive' Autonomous Cars?

Karganeth Re:Well, of course. (437 comments)

What a great argument. Something going potentially wrong is a great reason to ban that thing outright. That's why they banned six year olds from walking around - they could potentially fall down and serverely harm themselves in the process. LEARN WHEN PRINCIPLES MATTER. You need statistics. Not principles to win your argument.

Michael Abrash Joins Oculus, Calls Facebook 'Final Piece of the Puzzle'

Karganeth Facebook is written in php (232 comments)

Keep that in mind. Facebook is not a company of technological excellence (Apple) or software excellence (Google), but simply got lucky for being the social site that everyone went to.

NSA Infected 50,000 Computer Networks With Malicious Software

Karganeth Re:Business is business (264 comments)

Your hand waving abilities are not as strong as you think. It's not reasonable to expect such behaviour. Regardless, it's not acceptable and that's what matters. I agree that acting shocked isn't going to help anyone's cause but something should be done to stop the NSA from being out of control.
