The Odd Effects of Being Struck By Lightning

Osgeld Re:Not guaranteed memory problems (187 comments)

grabbing a car door does not make you grounded, it makes you a bigger target yes, but there's seveal inches of isolation tween the car and ground, as if that mattered at all, lightning travels several miles though the air to get stopped by a 4 inch rubber sidewall lol yea sure

The Odd Effects of Being Struck By Lightning

Osgeld Re:thanks for that great information (187 comments)

no it originates from dipshits who think the most simplistic thing represented in text form is a massive revolution in human evolution

its not, its fairly common knowledge and the article does not include any new or useful information

maybe you didn't know that whacking an electrical system with lightning will fuck it up, but that's because you are stupid.

The Odd Effects of Being Struck By Lightning

Osgeld thanks for that great information (187 comments)

the brain an nervous system is a complex and fragile low voltage electrical signaling system

lets zap it with lightning

best we can guess is that "Mary Ann Cooper, professor emerita at the University of Illinois at Chicago" who by the way retired in 2008 says that lighting fucks shit up

good god damn job

Debian Switching Back To GNOME As the Default Desktop

Osgeld why does debian even ship with a stock DE? (394 comments)

really its debian, you install it cause your tired of all the CRAP that comes on its variants

debian should give me a giant ass menu of all the crap I want on install, or not install anything aside from the core system so I can do it myself, If I want 100,000 jack ass packages ill use ubuntu, least it has firefox without having to fuck with text files for apt-get

The UPS Store Will 3-D Print Stuff For You

Osgeld Re:$60 for an iPhone case sounds high, but it isn' (144 comments)

sigh, selective reading

Originally it was said all most printers are based on open source, I stated no not high quality commercial ones, so point out a commercial grade printer VS a copycat open source one is TOTALLY FUCKING RELEVANT

just cause you want to jump in with your snotty ass attitude in the middle of a discussion does not mean you have all the information

Is Alibaba Comparable To a US Company?

Osgeld Re:Is Alibaba Comparable To a US Company? (121 comments)

in more simplistic terms hong wong sells you a box of crap that they broker the trade, you go sell your 5$ android watches for 50 in the mall tween the toliet and the food court hoping you make that 100,000$ a month rent selling crap to tweens, and you cant count on stock being available from hour to hour let alone for any amount of time to make any serious headway

the only winner is the broker, Alibaba is the broker

Is Alibaba Comparable To a US Company?

Osgeld Alibaba is garbage (121 comments)

so yes it might be comparable to a us company

if you want to sell 50 cent trinkets in a mall kiosk they are the way to go, but they are not a serious company IMO

New "Crescent Bay" VR Headset Revealed and Demo'd At Oculus Connect

Osgeld Re:Slashdot Hate Machine (65 comments)

no technology except the 20 years of old technology

VR has not gotten smaller or more responsive in 20 years, inf act its gotten larger and heavier than it was in the late 90's and the only improvement is resolution and source material

when a new, exciting technology is stagnated so long to the point its MOVING BACKWARDS, then there is a fundamental problem with the technology that is not worth getting all happy pants about, in fact its a 100% target of hate

why did a pair of I glasses in 1998 weigh half as much as current tech, have the same response time and COST less using state of the art screen tech for the time, and why do you expect me to be excited that the current tech weighs MORE, and cost more than both the set I had in the late 90's but also the set I had in the EARLY 90's

great we went from 480P tft lcd's to 1080P tft lcd's but it cost more and is heavier than what was available at EB games 25 years ago!
