LordKaT writes "In the wake of Thailand blocking anti-Royal websites, I figured I should do my part to land on their shitlist. Aside from getting blocking in Thailand there's also a good chance I could get nuked from space.
LordKaT writes "This years presidential election scares me, and I mean scares the shit out of me. Not so much because of policy, mind you, but because of the skeletons in the closets of John McCain and Barack Obama — and the willingness of the media to not even investigate those skeletons."

LordKaT writes "I used to have an ant farm, not because I wanted one, but because I was fascinated by the marketing. You see, ant farms are advertised as having the smartest and most amazing insects living between two panes of glass.
Well, when I had my ant farm, I didn't give a shit about raising them and letting build their tunnels. No sir, I conducted experiments! My final experiment stood out above the rest: just how smart are these little fuckers?" Link to Original Source top
LordKaT writes "Words of wisdom from a "high functioning" autistic man. Some gems include: stay in school and "learn as you much," playing with and talking to a my little pony doll to simulate conversation with women, handsome rich boys are inconsiderate and disgraceful, "tobacky" should be shot to the moon, wars result in "prickly wicklies."
LordKaT writes "So here's the story: I moved from the east coast to Seattle. Since I flew out here, I decided to have my computers shipped out to me via UPS. This turned out to be a horrible mistake, as UPS is, apparently, run by a bunch of monkeys with baseball bats. this is a warning to all nerds out there: don't ship anything with UPS: they will destroy it."

Microsoft, Linux and not being able to view StrongBad

You know what? I hate Microsoft. No, not because it's the popular thing to do on slashdot, rather, I hate them because of the proprietary stuff they force on the Internet. It's a royal pain in the ass.
Something else that pisses me off is that Macromedia has not fixed the audio desynch in their linux Flash distribution. It's really not that difficult guys, you count the frames, and if they don't match up, sync them! Oh well. That just means I'll need to use the windows computer to watch the weekly Strong Bad e-mails.
If anyone reads this, could you let me know if there is any legal reason why one would not distribute a linux distro on CD in a place of business? Granted, I'm sure some distro's would rather not have their material distributed on a physical format, but I think it would be cool to offer customers a free operating system (with a bright yellow sticker that says "Source Code Included" and another in a bright red star that says "100% Free").
