Student Uses Oculus Rift and Kinect To Create Body Swap Illusion

Killjoy_NL Re:Fatsos (88 comments)

You acting like an asshole like this might also have the result that somebody will be inclined to break your face and/or other parts of your body.
Since healthcare pays for that as well, we have a right to request that you don't act like a dick so you won't get your ass beaten for which healthcare pays.

The Netherlands, specifically Rotterdam is one of the biggest (if not the biggest) ports for europe, we did fine with borders, we are doing great with less borders.

How about showing all genitalia being just more honest?
As a straight guy, I enjoy the female shots, but I am not bothered by the male shots.
The human body is the most natural thing in the world, let's not get ourselves into a tizzy about nature like this.

The Quietest Place On Earth Will Cause You To Hallucinate In 45 Minutes

Killjoy_NL Re:BULL CRAP! (332 comments)

Now now, relax, being curious about something is not the same as how you interpreted it.
I think he meant that he would love experience the room, not being deaf.
If he did mean being deaf "Do not attribute to malice, that which can be adequately explained by stupidity".

CyanogenMod Installer Removed From Google Play Store

Killjoy_NL Re:Where's the outrage?! (255 comments)

And rightfully so, however, Google isn't making it impossible to install the CM mod or the installer.
I can understand their point of view, if a newb user is using this to install a different firmware and screws it up, he/she can't fix it and will try to claim warranty, which it will not be given. Then there would be courtcases and other shitstorm stuff that would damage Google because the user was stupid.

US Government Shutdown Ends

Killjoy_NL Re:Thank goodness (999 comments)

The Netherlands is at 17th place, pretty darn good I think and our healthcare is more like the ACA, it's been like that for many years.

Watch some of these, it isn't perfect but we are doing a darn good job

Why iOS 7 Is Making Some Users Feel 'Sick'

Killjoy_NL Re:On the plus side... (261 comments)

The iphone 5 with 16gb is +/- 516 euros here in the Netherlands (cheapest price)
The Galaxy S4 with 16gb is +/- 486 euros here (cheapest price) (and bigger screen and better specs)
Both unsubsidized, but Mcgrew is a known troll, so don't take him too seriously

Jack Thompson shuffled out of court

Killjoy_NL Killjoy_NL writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Killjoy_NL writes "Another nail in the coffin of dear old Jack Thompson. His $600 million case against Take 2 was thrown out by the judge.

Quote from the article "In disposing of the case, Judge Huling ruled that the Court did not have jurisdiction over Take Two and Sony, since neither corporation has offices in New Mexico. Judge Huling also ruled that New Mexico laws did not support Thompson's wrongful death claim in the case."

I hope people won't mind if I am smiling ear to ear right now over this.
Head on over to for the scoop"

Killjoy_NL writes "In a surprising post-election statement at the WEB 2.0 summit, Eric Schmidt criticized Bush' privacy policies.
From the article: "The Google chief executive, Eric Schmidt, yesterday vowed to resist attempts by US president George W Bush's administration to obtain private information on internet users."
Also from the article: "Earlier this year, Google succeeded in having a subpoena allowing access to huge banks of data on the habits of web users overturned by a federal judge."

Would he also have done this if the republicans won the elections?

Killjoy_NL writes "The dutch secret service (AIVD) has revoked the licenses of the electronic voting machines in 35 cities in the Netherlands. They found that the radiosignal that was used to send the vote from the computer to the server could still be read from 10 meters.
"This is too big a risk to the privacy of voting, that's why we revoked the licenses. They can go back to paper voting or get different voting computers." Read here for more (It's dutch, you might want to use the fish)

Elections are planned for November, it will be interesting to see what they will do."
