Smartphones More Dangerous Than Alcohol, When Driving

N8w8 Re:For you guys, maybe (358 comments)

What a coincidence, so am I!
In fact, I'm posting this while driving as we sp&*$@%*$#NO CARRIER

This must be my lucky day! I was just posting to /. but lost my connection. After a sigh, and a swear at my telco, I took a long overdue peek at the road. And found myself speeding towards a brick wall, which I managed to avoid just in time!
Thank you, oh precious NO CARRIER meme, for saving my life once ag&*$@%*$#NO CARRIER

N8w8 That's nothing (160 comments)

Ha! With my typing system, I needn't use more than just one finger!
PS: any advice on getting first post? It seems impossible.

Oxford Professor Taken To Task For Linking Internet Use To Autism

N8w8 Re:Wow. Just... Wow. (247 comments)

It would be great if everyone would be found to have a disorder.
I have an "autistic spectrum disorder", and I don't consider it a disease, I consider it a brain/personality category.
Therefore, the term "disorder" to me implies that I don't fit in some order made up by people who don't know anything about me, who I have never even met.
If everyone would "have" a disorder, it would be an acknowledgement that the order they made up, isn't.
There is no order, everyone is different. No matter what kind of label is stuck on you by people who think they know everything, you are the only one who can truly know and help yourself.
But the lack of understanding of self, and feeling powerless to work on their problems, leads people to search for causes and solutions in the wrong places, like prescription/illegal drugs, doing their best to stay as much as possible in the victim mentality, materialism etc..
PS: yes, I know some drugs can be beneficial, but psychiatric drugs are mostly about symptom suppression.

N8w8 Re:My suggestions (239 comments)

Though some wouldn't call it music, for me Speedcore is even more un-relaxing.

Wine 1.0-rc2 Released

N8w8 But I DO run BSD and Linux! (138 comments)

Which, if you're right, would mean I run Linux and Windows.
Which, if you're right, would mean I run Windows and... euhm...
What's below Windows on the evolutionary/social status ladder?
Nothing, I guess :)
