Blizzard Has Canceled Titan, Its Next-gen MMO

MugenEJ8 Re:F*ck Titan. (155 comments)

I'm sorry you had such problems.

D3 is a brilliant game, and Blizzard did a phenomenal job of a) releasing awesome new patches (especially 2.x) and b) getting my money. I bought it for PC when it first came out, then I bought the X360 version when that did, then RoS for PC, then UEE for X1 couple weeks ago... It's one franchise Blizzard has that will always get my money.

Feds Say NSA "Bogeyman" Did Not Find Silk Road's Servers

MugenEJ8 I'm envisioning a comic... (142 comments)

Where a group of FBI boffins are cheering, hooting and hollering about the find, and a group of NSA boffins, rolling their eyes and being coy, "Awe! Look at them, you'd think they just broke codes!".

Scientists Baffled By Unknown Source of Ozone-Depleting Chemical

MugenEJ8 Re:Easy, India or China (303 comments)

On the bright side, with the two parties working at cross purposes we're ending up with the worst parts of both systems.

Exactly this, sorry no mod points.

Android Motorcycle Helmet/HUD Gains Funding

MugenEJ8 Re:As the man says... (126 comments)

Rear view in your helmet visor would be awesome. Fucking radar off the back of the bike with software that could warn of a wobbly driver approaching from behind--priceless.

Acoustic distance sensors with an Arduino module connected to some sort of radial LED warning system is something I wish I had the hardware talent to create. As riders, we don't need to know what kind of objects are behind us or on blindspots, just that they're there. In most cases a couple degrees of rotation of my wrist and I'm a 1/4mi from the target, but the knowledge that something is there is incredibly useful at 25mph or 150mph.

Android Motorcycle Helmet/HUD Gains Funding

MugenEJ8 Re:It's absolutely NOT worth it (126 comments)

I completely agree, as the only time my expensive lids come off the shelf is when I'm on track and they require >DOT standards. There's no way I would daily a $1,400 helmet...

Until some sort of display interface that connects via BT or even cable to a specialized shield, HUD systems for riders will never take off. Think transparent curved displays like the ones LG just showed off recently. It's the perfect compliment to a helmet, and if the big manufacturers get onboard with some sort of "e-shield" standard, then we may have something to consider.

What To Do If Police Try To Search Your Phone Without a Warrant

MugenEJ8 Other Electronic Devices (286 comments)

Because I'm an enthusiast when it comes to motorcycles and cars, I tend to keep a lot of action cameras hooked up when out at meets or when going to the track. I've been pulled over before and the police officer took the camera from my helmet and started flipping through the log. Knowing he wouldn't find anything incriminating because I had not been recording, I consented to the search...

Is this scenario protected under the precedent set by the Riley v. United States ruling?

Expert Warns: Civilian World Not Ready For Massive EMP-Caused Blackout

MugenEJ8 Re:Actual thought process (271 comments)

I love how people want to knock on <insert media outlet here>, while the other side has nightmarishly hilarious content like...

"A small black hole would suck in our entire universe. So we know it's not that. The Bermuda Triangle is often weather, and 'Lost' is a TV show." -Mary Schiavo

That took the cake for me... Someone needs to explain to that bitch what the fuck we spin around here in the Milky Way. To help them out, it sounds like "Supermassive asshole".

Retired SCOTUS Justice Wants To 'Fix' the Second Amendment

MugenEJ8 Re:Militia, then vs now (1633 comments)

At the time there were limited arms (you took about 2 minutes to reload) vs able to empty a couple clips in that same amount of time, now.

Who the f*ck modded this up? If you can't describe part of the firearm correctly, don't post... you just look like a twit.

Should Microsoft Be Required To Extend Support For Windows XP?

MugenEJ8 It's funny guys... (650 comments)

For a buncha people adamantly against Windows, there sure are a lot of people out here explaining how Microsoft should extend support for an obsolete product.

It's obsolete and dangerous to your business/personal life, like lead paint and asbestos. Please upgrade to something modern and stop moaning.

OKCupid Warns Off Mozilla Firefox Users Over Gay Rights

MugenEJ8 Re:April Fools stories are gay (1482 comments)

Thinking one group of people is subhuman, and not worthy of the same rights isn't "an opposing view", it's bigotry.

This isn't a quip at you, but I'm interested in your response; It's an honest question. Am I a bigot because I consider child molestors, rapists and nazis subhuman? These are groups of people. Some with mental health problems, others with aggressive theological views... All scourge of the earth in my eyes.

Department of Transportation Makes Rear View Cameras Mandatory

MugenEJ8 Re:What society really needs to do (518 comments)

I know plenty of people who get along just fine outside of anyplace with public transportation and no car of their own.

Its not hard, but go ahead and make excuses to avoid the problem.

Me too!

They're called deployed service-men/women.

Part of me wonders if: (num_of_display_related_injuries/yr) > (num_of_injuries_related_to_not_having_a_backup_cam/yr)

Because if the above statement is true, here's another instance of our Gov't doing what it does best!

How Satellite Company Inmarsat Tracked Down MH370

MugenEJ8 Re:Flight recorder (491 comments)

Contrary to movies, spy satellites do not watch every inch of the planet. Nor can you easily steer them into another orbit for live James Bond style feeds.

ZERO spy satellites point at the open ocean, nothing interesting going on out there.

Meet SBIRS - From the page "SBIRS, considered one of the nation’s highest priority space programs, is designed to provide global, persistent, infrared surveillance capabilities to meet 21st century demands..."

I would find it illogical for the United States to only be monitoring continental lands, it would be akin to taking a picture and cropping out everything but the subject.

My bet is no government wants to out their level of sophistication in the surveillance world... It's a massive tactical advantage.

Iran Builds Mock-up of Nimitz-Class Aircraft Carrier

MugenEJ8 Re:F-35 is not just American (298 comments)

Apart from the parts which were not designed in the US, sure... Your definition of "American" seems to be based on feeling, not some sort of solid definition...

I'll walk you through my thought process...

Per Wikipedia: "It is being designed and built by an aerospace industry team led by Lockheed Martin." Now correct me if I'm wrong, but Lockheed Martin is an American company. Therefore it must be American.

I'll use another industry as an example. If Samsung produces 75% of the technology inside a television, and then sources the plastics from say China, it's still a South Korean product, not a South Korean & Chinese product. Or a car manufacturer, say Lotus, that sources an engine from Toyota, don't start saying their vehicle is British & Japanese. It's just British.

I'm not saying that the JSF project is only American, but in design and manufacturing and the majority of the funding was in fact, American.

How is what I'm saying based on feeling? It seems to me, you're trying to argue a point you can't substantiate either...
