Crowdsourced Remake "The Empire Strikes Back Uncut" Now Complete

Mishotaki Re:surreal (55 comments)

It's also surreal with the constant changing of actors and graphical modes while the plot remains. I think its great.

in no way anyone could watch this and have any idea what the hell is happening in the movie... unless you know the movie by heart! i've watched about 30 min and i was confused as hell, i haven't watched a star wars movie in 10 years, but i still remember a lot of the plot... but you can't follow the characters because the same characters change every 10 seconds! it might be great, but only for hardcore fans...

High School Student Builds Gun That Unlocks With Your Fingerprint

Mishotaki Re:Great one more fail (600 comments)

Call me crazy but none of my firearms accidentally go off.

Standard answers apply here:

1) Yet 2) You're not everyone 3) Many policemen would far prefer that their gun not be useable if someone takes it away from them.

Sorry, but i highly doubt that any policemen would enable such a lock on their gun as they would not ever be able to use their gun in the instance where they have gloves on their hands....

Should police have cameras recording their work at all times?

Mishotaki Re:I'm all for saving money but, (455 comments)

I also want to know if I can trust the people my tax dollars pay to protect me. The cops have betrayed that trust FAR too many times for MUCH too long.

The problem is not that they failed to protect you, it's that their job is NOT to protect you but to RESPOND to crime. They respond to clues, to hunches and to people breaking the law. They are not there to protect anyone, but to stop people who already broke the law by attacking you. Therefore, they are doing their job right and you must continue to trust in that useless system that sends people who pirate songs and download movies for more time in jail than pedophiles and murderers...

Get Ready For a Streaming Music Die-Off

Mishotaki Re:The article is FUD (370 comments)

But then those people in other countries don't have access to the streaming services offered to US customers... as a Canadian, i don't know Pandora, i don't know Spotify and i have no reason to try Rhapsody... we are simply met with a page that checks our IP address and says that we can't use their services. IMO the biggest problem with their service is the small amount of people that can use the service when if the record companies wouldn't stop them, they could simply market their service to anyone with an internet connection...
