To Save the Internet We Need To Own the Means of Distribution

KraxxxZ01 Re:Yes. Bravo. (338 comments)

Scavenging is mostly gone with agricultural revolution thousands of years ago. And in my part of world villagers were actually destroying roads so they would be left alone by turks. Imagine, they did not starve to death, nor did they ate sewage even tho there was no sewage system at the time. So, no. Roads, and sewage systems are far from necessity by your logic.

Is Crimea In Russia? Internet Companies Have Different Answers

KraxxxZ01 "use of force" (304 comments)

what was breaking Kosovo from Serbia than? "use of out-of-this-world-force"?

NATO fucked up when it broke sovereign state by use of ... flowers?

I could go with statement that Crimea is annexed by use of trickery and lies. But force... that just laughable.

Sony, Microsoft Squabble Over Console Features, But the Real Opponent Is Apple

KraxxxZ01 Re: Apple? (315 comments)

Serious gaming I would call all competitive games with high skill cap. With competitions held and awards won. Scoreboard is not competition, and in game stuff is not award. I mean venues and money/hardware. Quake, Starcraft to name most popular. FIFA afaik enters that category. Thou I myself dislike all spot simulations, I respect that some people find 'em fun.
As a PC gamer master race I would consider serious gaming an epic RPG or strategy. Consoles got Skyrim, so there you go dirty peasants.

Mobile games come close to none of this categories mostly due to hardware limitation. And Apple with it's gaming history doesn't really sound promising.

1st Fully Bionic Man Walks, Talks and Breathes

KraxxxZ01 KraxxxZ01 writes  |  about a year ago

KraxxxZ01 (2445360) writes ""Our job was to take the delivery of a large collection of body parts — organs, limbs, eyes, heads — and over a frantic six weeks, turn those parts into a bionic man," Walker told LiveScience during an interview. But it's not as simple as connecting everything like Tinkertoys. "You put a prosthetic part on a human who is missing that part," Walker said. "We had no human; we built a human for the prosthetic parts to occupy.""
