News Aggregator Fark Adds Misogyny Ban

Kinthelt Re:Sigh (748 comments)

Or Slashdot. It's got really, really bad here over the last couple of years. Things really nose dived after the Beta exodus and a lot of regulars left.

We're still here. We're just too tired to post any more.

I heard they're waiting for their release title to be completed first: Duke Nukem Forever 2.

The Andromeda Galaxy Just Had a Bright Gamma Ray Event

It would instantly fry half the planet. The rest of the planet gets to die slowly.

Kinthelt Re:Bigger concern (154 comments)

I'll have to call bullshit on this. I just recently paid off my student loans. It took me ten years, but I did it. Hardly "the rest of my life".

Ties of the Matrix: An Exercise in Combinatorics

Kinthelt Re:There's in infinite number of ways (51 comments)

There's danger to be had when Slashdot ventures into knot theory (and braid theory).

BTW, you forgot to mention the important lemma that you can turn any braid into a knot by adequately connecting the ends.

Homeopathic Remedies Recalled For Containing Real Medicine

Kinthelt Homeopathic principles (173 comments)

Shouldn't sea water be considered a wonder drug in homeopathy, because everything eventually makes its way into the ocean and gets ultra-diluted.

AMC Theaters Allegedly Calls FBI to Interrogate a Google Glass Wearer

Kinthelt Re:What use... (1034 comments)

This guy should have never spoken to them. Period. Arrest me, give me a lawyer or let me walk out the door. No other words should have escaped his lips.

That's the theoretically noble thing to do. In reality he felt he had nothing to hide and laid it all out for them to see. Perhaps he figured it would be less of a nuisance than obtaining a lawyer and getting yelled at by the wife for wasting more money on that Google Glass thing.

Unfortunately, the cops are on the clock. They're getting paid to waste time. So trying to "save some time" really doesn't work.

AMC Theaters Allegedly Calls FBI to Interrogate a Google Glass Wearer

Kinthelt MOD parent up! (1034 comments)

Never *EVER* consent to searches. The police cannot search you or your property without reasonable cause. But if you give them the freedom to search, then they can charge you for *anything* they find, even if it wasn't what they were looking for.

Nope. Winnipeg. So I've got a bit of street cred when it comes to cold. (Albeit not as much as the people in the *real* cold places)

How an Astronaut Falling Into a Black Hole Would Die Part 2

Kinthelt Re:How he would die (263 comments)

No. From his perspective, time is running the same as it always does. From *our* perspective, he would be ripped to shreds extremely slowly due to time-dilation.

How an Astronaut Falling Into a Black Hole Would Die Part 2

Kinthelt How he would die (263 comments)

An unfortunate astronaut falling into a black hole would probably die due to different gravitational pulls acting on his body. The parts of his body closer to the singularity would get ripped off (or more likely, the spacesuit would rupture) as he approached the singularity.

Swiss War Game Envisages Invasion By Bankrupt French

Kinthelt Re:Countries do this all the time (245 comments)

Old Roman maxim... If you desire peace, prepare for war.

Funny you mention that. The latin wording is "Si vis pacem, para bellum". When Georg Luger invented the Pistole Parabellum 1908, he named it after that phrase. The Pistole Parabellum 1908 is also known generically as the "Luger" which was the official sidearm of the Nazis.
