The Department of Homeland Security Needs Its Own Edward Snowden

Kuroji For all we know, there's been a few. (190 comments)

Likely they were discovered earlier than Snowden and became the subject of an extrajudicial execution, much as some have clamored to have done to Snowden.

The Almost Forgotten Story of the Amiga 2000

Kuroji Re:I owned one (several) (192 comments)

Because his delivery of lines in Stand By Me was so good? Honestly? Ugh.

"Internet's Own Boy" Briefly Knocked Off YouTube With Bogus DMCA Claim

Kuroji Re:Right to face accuser (157 comments)

More importantly, if they're outside the US, why does the DMCA apply to them?!

DC Entertainment Won't Allow Superman Logo On Murdered Child's Memorial Statue

Kuroji Re:Superman (249 comments)

Well, of course he did. He used them to part the red sea! Just, zzzap!, and now there's a huge hole big enough for everyone to run to the other side through!

Was Turing Test Legitimately Beaten, Or Just Cleverly Tricked?

Kuroji Re:but that's the problem with the turing test... (309 comments)

The Turing test was not conceived with text messaging in mind. Or the machine intelligence being on par with a thirteen year old with ADD from a distant land that knows nothing of ongoing current events and is terrible at the language because it is not their native tongue.

Turing Test Passed

Kuroji Re:Turing Test Failed (432 comments)

David Copperfield doesn't try to tell me that I just don't understand his act because it's something he picked up overseas while he clumsily goes through it with obvious stunt doubles.

Penn and Teller don't try to convince me that I shouldn't be wearing my glasses when I watch them on stage and that I just don't "get it" and that I should believe they really are wizards.

Your reasoning is flawed, and this test was fundamentally flawed.

Protecting Our Brains From Datamining

Kuroji Re:That's the second most scary part. (100 comments)

You'd get a Nobel prize for medicine.

You really do not understand how complex the human brain is, do you?

Congressman Introduces Bill To Limit FCC Powers

Kuroji Does anyone actually believe this? (176 comments)

The congresscritters are owned by lobbyists at this point, without question. Lock, stock, and barrel.

Even if things don't go the way they want, they'll just keep introducing legislation to try and get what their masters want. CISPA is the most blatant example of this.

Is It Really GPS If It Doesn't Use Satellites?

Sure, you just need to get the shark to eat someone wearing the man-portable version.

The Physics of Hot Pockets

Kuroji Re:Seriously. (222 comments)

Really? Have your shoes not been staying tied when you tie them? Have they been constantly catching on anything you walk past since you were able to tie them yourself?


Then maybe everyone should stop praising this talk as the goddamn second coming.

Canadian Teen Arrested For Calling In 30+ Swattings, Bomb Threats

Kuroji Re:bleh. (350 comments)

I thought it was because when you hit thirty or so you're going to find that your joints are going to protest all those push-ups in basic in a big way.

Thorium: The Wonder Fuel That Wasn't

Kuroji Re:Send it to the sun (204 comments)

Because without Superman, Lois Lane's stupidity kills her, duh.

Even Lex Luthor can't fix stupid.

Why Disney Can't Give Us High-Def Star Wars Where Han Shoots First

Kuroji Re:Despecialized Editions (210 comments)

Probably the same sort of people who were making anime music videos of Linkin Park and Hellsing.

CISPA 3.0: the Senate's New Bill As Bad As Ever

Kuroji Re:Me and Jimmy Carter (132 comments)

I'd be happy to. But the people who are up there making these laws are the people who are trying to force through CISPA for the third or fourth time now.

We can't make any laws like this until we get someone good in there. We can't get someone good in there until we start breaking it open. We can't start breaking it open until we can pass laws like this.

CISPA 3.0: the Senate's New Bill As Bad As Ever

Kuroji Re:Obviously (132 comments)

Oh please, Mr. Anonymous, share with us your wisdom as to how we can get someone who is a viable option to remove these lobbying problems from our government. Tell me who we can elect that has the means to run a successful campaign without accepting lobbying money and who will be an incorruptible politician!
