CBC Warns Canadians of "US Law Enforcement Money Extortion Program"

Nephandus Re:Seems reasonable (462 comments)

Heh, I always did get a kick out of still remembered jokes about beating up the wrong kind of white people get ignored when racism comes up in the US. It's all white vs non-white and North vs South to hear Northerners (and Westerners like Hollywood) and even local (Southern) "liberals" talk.

You're describing the history of statism. No state exist now that wasn't either conquered or granted existence by one that was.

Massive Study Searching For Genes Behind Intelligence Finds Little

Nephandus Re:Great news (269 comments)

Your presumption's consistent with gynocentric norms privileging flagrant but shallow, unilateral shaming tactics against males. Please, continue making my point. I've never met a single female that didn't regard issues differently dependent on gender nor have ever not been bashed for catching them in the act by citing their own admissions.

"It is a cheap thing, for example, in the case of a man and woman quarreling in the street, to play out the stage role of the bold and gallant Englishman "who won't see a woman maltreated and put upon, not he!" and this, of course, without any inquiry into the merits of the quarrel. To swim with the stream, to make a pretense of boldness and bravery, when all the time you know you have the backing of conventional public opinion and mob-force behind you, is the cheapest of mock heroics."

White knights've been around for a long time...

Text While Driving In Long Island and Have Your Phone Disabled

Nephandus Re:But... (364 comments)

Certain cars that regularly sit in certain places and meet certain other non-uniformed people and unmarked cars there creeped me out for years even before they starting doing this. I KNOW some of the other parties are gang members but have never heard of a single officially gang-related arrest in this particular town, so something's very wrong. I see it more often now than them holding either the CB or talky things they still got.

Text While Driving In Long Island and Have Your Phone Disabled

Nephandus Re:But... (364 comments)

Most here already have a screen with a keyboard next to them built into the car. I've seen several every morning coasting haphazardly down certain streets while clearly fiddling with the thing. Same ones tend to end up following me around repeatedly for no reason. They're not doing anything actually useful in either case, and their mentality's clearly fucked up. If I coasted by driving like they do (ignoring that the typical 2 lanes means I'd hit them by crossing the same line), they'd very likely be glad to have an excuse to pull me personally.

They'll do in on purpose too. They'll play the normality privilege card on you, and anything you say will just be taken as proof they're right, and you're wrong since they're right for merely existing according to their dogma. Works like your average proudly chauvinistically myopic females using the creep card on males that don't play their games by their rules literally all the fucking time. You learn to avoid them, which will just get you generally blacklisted as that creep always alone over there, anyway.

Device Boots Drones, Google Glass Off Wi-Fi

Nephandus Re:Seems fine to me. (184 comments)

After a flashbang was shot into the wrong window and set a little girl on fire, SWAT then invaded the correct apartment on the other side of the hall, which means they fired the thing into a window on opposite side of the apartment building first. During the operation, one of them in the hall got into an argument with the girl's grandmother just before the girl ran out into the front room on fire. The officer preceded to shoot her to death 'cause that's what you do to flaming children? When questioned about that part specifically, he reemphasize the grandmother being argumentative.

His authoritay being questioned was not only a higher priority than burning then murdering a child, but he thought other people should see it that way too. Ironically, that's not the only little girl they've managed to set of fire that year even. Somehow they missed a teenage girl in her house's hallway with assault rifle fire though. How do you hit child beds through windows (and apparently cribs) with a grenade but miss an open door with burst fire? They got a medal for that last operation. Guess it's an accomplishment not to kill innocent civilian minors now.

BBC: ISPs Should Assume VPN Users Are Pirates

Nephandus Re:Contacting BBC, via VPN (363 comments)

Might as well explain how forcing people to buy insurance for others to cash in on can't possibly profit the buyers. The supporters don't care nor have any problem with lying at this point.

After Celebrity Photo Leaks, 4chan Introduces DMCA Policy

Nephandus Re:Doesn't this pretty much kill 4chan? (134 comments)

I can attest. Make the increasingly epidemic SJW quasi-trolls look dumb enough by actual arguments that'll stick even in their otherwise reflexive idiot-supporters' craws, and the thread will vanish in a couple minutes, regardless of board, popularity, or thread age. They've killed plenty of unusually intelligent conversations within the last few months that way. Trolls on trolls or genuine freakouts will last way longer for no other apparent reason.

First US Appeals Court Hears Arguments To Shut Down NSA Database

"Respect" and "life" are only words. Those two can easily be used to "justify" ending a great many, while enslaving any survivors.

First US Appeals Court Hears Arguments To Shut Down NSA Database

Nephandus Re:It's amazing (199 comments)

Yeah, but liberal then meant more or less what's called libertarian now too. Only outside the US does liberal mean classically liberal anymore. Social liberals are social democrats outside the US. Basically, todays liberals are only liberal by their radical mutilation of the word in direct contradiction of its original meaning.

Hayek, in particular, lamented that we was liberal most of his career but ended up being called conservative perversely due to his classical liberalism. Reading anything about him will find him championing liberalism vs conservatism. He certainly wasn't a "social democrat".

It's not shame. It's bad PR. That still only works if they think it'll really affect them, which they know better now. We live in world increasingly composed of the most propagandized generation of sheeple in human history, and they're proud of it.

Study: Social Networks Have Negative Effect On Individual Welfare

Nephandus Re:If you haven't got a thick skin (76 comments)

So they need to actually grow up and deal with reality like us cynics do? Yes, how insidious it'd be if I can't get lectured about precious normality by half a dozen pretentious friends/long-time-associates (each other's, not mine), one at a time, who completely contradict each other yet continue to regard each other as perfectly normal.

Limiting the Teaching of the Scientific Process In Ohio

Nephandus Re:This is good! (528 comments)

How exactly does one memorize multiplication tables without accidentally comprehending "what multiplication is"? How is not nigh immediately obvious to anyone who knows basic addition, which should itself only require a few seconds to explain to them?

The Grumpy Programmer has Advice for Young Computer Workers (Video)

Nephandus Re:Incredibly wise advice (120 comments)

Disingenuous or blind. You need social and legal threats to continue your relationship? Otherwise, it's not the social/legal entity of marriage but the independent relationship. You can call that "marriage", but that'd be perfectly arbitrary. The difference between wife and girlfriend are meaningless without the social and legal entity, which can't be part of actual intimacy. You can't subordinate intimacy to external politics, and it still be intimacy. It necessarily becomes the politics. I'd think 37 years would make this more obvious to you than the hookup culture flingers who can't comprehend the literal definition of intimacy anymore.
