City of Toronto Files Court Injunction Against Uber

Murdoch5 cab drivers are mostly unqualifed (168 comments)

I think Toronto should get rid of cabs period. Being a Toronto resident I can tell how bad the cab infection has got around the city. They don't follow the traffic law, they don't drive safetly , they don't drive with common sense in mind and they completely fuck rush hour and add 10s of minutes to the commute. Toronto should either get properly trained cab drivers or move to Uber.

Creationism Conference at Michigan State University Stirs Unease

Murdoch5 Creationism - Logic for the mental child (1007 comments)

1) How evolutionary theory influenced Adolf Hitler's worldview:

Hitler was a roman catholic who blamed the Jews for the putting Jesus to death, that is why he enacted revenge. He later converted to atheism, but atheism had nothing to do with why the holocaust started. It's also important to note that evolution never played a roll in the holocaust.

2) why "the Big Bang is fake,"

This is a common topic by the creationist, the big bang is fake because something can't come from nothing. Except God came from nothing or always existed, either breaking there logic from the big bang or breaking common logic and creating a massive paradox. It's also important to note that if the universe can't come from nothing but God can, God would be at a higher informational state then the universe, so basically the creationist believes that you can't create a universe, but you can create higher order and information then the universe out of nothing. This is the single worst piece of logic used by the creationist.

3) Why "natural selection is NOT evolution."

Natural selection can't be part of evolution because we've never seen one speices evolve into another. Well if this is there logic, we never saw anyone write the bible, we never saw Jesus, we never saw God, etc.. etc.. etc.. another flawed piece of logic from the creationists.

Why on earth do we put up with this non-sense. Creationism is NOT science, it's not viable and it have absolutely zero evidence in it's favor. It's religious driven dogma that harm life, dignity, morals, rationality and ethics. I'll put to the creationists to show me ONE piece of hard evidence that backs up the existence of God. Keep in mind you can't cause a paradox or use the infinity logic. Go for it, I really want to see someone be the first person in history to take this on.

Apple Sells More Than 10 Million New iPhones In First 3 Days

Murdoch5 They sold 10 million units of last years tech? (206 comments)

It's amazing the iPhone sells, it's old technology outfitted with pointless style, but I guess if you want to brag about getting the hardware I had last year then cool.

Ask Slashdot: Have You Experienced Fear Driven Development?

Murdoch5 So, never be afraid (232 comments)

It doesn't matter how much lashing you take from managers, co-workers or senior management. If something is wrong you need to point it out and stand up until it's fixed ( usually meaning you fix it! ). I was a on a project where my boss insisted on outsourcing all the programming to India to save money, it took over a week of arguing with him to make him realize that saving money doesn't make up for quality. I've been on other projects where marketing gets to set the requirements and managers pretty much adhere to "If marketing wants it, they will have it". In all cases the role you have to play is the same, stand up to people and tell them they need to fix the steaming piles of shit now before it snow balls. If you get fired for being right and standing up then good, it proves you have more integrity then the company did, if you get verbally beat down then it usually means you're right and should keep pushing back until something is done.

Technological Solution For Texting While Driving Struggles For Traction

Murdoch5 Re:Can we stop lying? (326 comments)

It's not luck, why would luck dictate my ability to quantify the amount of spacial reference around me and react? Granted that driving in India of China might be a different ball game but I still fail to see why I would need super human ability to text and drive, driving is only about taking in the amount if matter around you and reacting to it, something which a human brain is pretty good at, texting is simply typing a message and thanks to all keyboards being standardized you should be able to do that with out looking at the screen, so I fail to see your points, you're either a bad driver or you believe the lies about non-existent distracted driving.

If you think you need super human skill to text and drive then you need to give up your license.

The fact is that 99.99% of what we use PC's for can be done on Linux, in fact 99% of the server room can run on Linux with out effort. It's time for Microsoft to admit we don't need them.

Technological Solution For Texting While Driving Struggles For Traction

Murdoch5 Can we stop lying? (326 comments)

There is no such thing as distracted driving! There are bad drivers, incompetent drivers, morons, assholes and people who should never of been given a license in first place but there is nothing called distracted driving. Just because you can't use your cellphone and drive doesn't I can't, I could have 20 naked women all grinding me and still drive a prefect straight line well taking in everything in my environment, which doesn't mean that if another person, in the same situation, crashes it's distracted driving. Just as video games don't cause violence, Atheism doesn't cause a loss of morals, cell phones don't make you a bad driver, you either are a bad driver or you're not.

All this talk about how to handle cell phones in the car is just silly, don't do anything! It's not up to the car or police to control phone use in car, it's up to the driver to realize that they have no control of a car well texting or calling. Yes people have died as a result of someone using a cell phone well driving, but in reality they died because the person behind the wheel was given a license when in fact they shouldn't of been. A cell phone has never caused an accident, only a driver can cause an accident, can we start calling out piss poor driving and stop trying make excuses. Bad driving is the problem, don't make your cellphone take the fall for the fact you can't drive.

Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

Murdoch5 Horrible Logic (937 comments)

Atheism means that you believe it's more probable for the universe then create itself then it is for a pedophile, misogynistic, sadomasochist, asshole, to create the universe 6000 years ago and you exist now thanks to incest, murder, killing, abuse and rape. If you want to believe in the literal bible then please go ahead, but you don't look intelligent, rational, mature or even like an adult. The same goes for Islam, Judaism and any other religion which claims to have the answers.

Cuba Calculates Cost of 54yr US Embargo At $1.1 Trillion

Murdoch5 Act first think later (540 comments)

Well the US acted in 1960 to place the embargo, we're still waiting for them to actually think it through. It's funny that Cuba actually has a better medical system then the US, and it's state funded, probably what the embargo was about in the first place.

3 Recent Flights Make Unscheduled Landings, After Disputes Over Knee Room

Murdoch5 Why does anyone recline anyway? (819 comments)

Leave your seats upright, you don't need to recline on a short flight, or really any flight under 7 hours. Either buy a first class seat if you want to lay down or stay seated properly!!! I don't pay money to have someone jam the seat into my knees, I would use knee blockers ( or what ever those plastic clips were ).

Apple's Diversity Numbers: 70% Male, 55% White

Murdoch5 That means nothing (561 comments)

You have to look at how each gender interviews and balance that with qualification, the same has to be done for each time of ethnicity that applies. You can't get mad at them saying, "They're sexist and a white majority company!", when you don't know the information stated above. If 90% of the women who apply can't interview very well or can't show there qualifications then why would they deserve a job? You should never be awarded a job because you aren't a while Caucasian male.
