Slashdot Launches Re-Design

PakProtector Re:Thanks for the redesign! (2254 comments)

Yeah. I've been reading /. for more than a decade, and the site's visual design has gotten worse and worse with each attempt to "fix" it.

It ain't broke, you dumb sacks of shit -- don't fix it!

US Government Strategy To Prevent Leaks Is Leaked

PakProtector Re:That's not irony! (336 comments)

It was ironic that Romeo killed himself, because he did so out of a mistaken belief that Juliet was dead, when, in fact, she was not.

What do Algae and Drill Sergeants have in common?

They both reproduce via fission, like all other bacteria.

Yes, I am aware of the technical incorrectness of the above statement. Algae are not bacteria.

Doctors Seeing a Rise In "Google-itis"

PakProtector Re:Hypochondria? (368 comments)

I don't think you understand. Your wife is a rarity.

I am not a doctor. I am studying to be one. I talk to a lot of doctors. The patients who come in who have diagnosed themselves correctly, or close to correctly, such as getting the 'genus' of a disorder or disease correct while the 'species' is incorrect, are so rare that they tend to remember them.

Compare it to a Help Desk worker -- how many callers, per centum, do you think that Help Desk worker gets who would call up, have a correct or nearly so idea about what is wrong, and be calling only to get instructions on how to fix it?

Researchers Build Evolving Brain Computer?

PakProtector IMHO (114 comments)

The easiest way to create AI is to model the neuron inside of a computer, slice up someone's brain into lots of thin slices, and then recreate their brain in the computer. Mapping the inputs is the hard part.

How Old Is the Oldest Computer You Regularly Use?

Studying For Certification Exams On Company Time?

PakProtector Re:Where in the world? (281 comments)

If on Slashdot someone fails to mention what country they're in, you can be almost certain that they're in the US.

Seriously. If someone in Barcelona asks how much an apple costs, you don't ask them in what country.

Similarly, if someone on a US-centric website based out of the US asks a question related to a locality without specifying that locality, anyone with an IQ greater than that of a lawyer should be able to understand that they're referencing the United States.

Apologies about the above statement to NewYorkCountryLawyer and the other human, as opposed to shark and/or mosquito, members of the profession.

Ireland May Be Next To Censor the Internet

PakProtector Re:Blasphemous! (155 comments)

Deityphages is even more bizzare...

Not only Catholics BTW - also Orthodox (or Eastern churches generally), Anglicanism, also Lutheranism; yes, the mechanisms of what supposedly happens vary, but the essence remains the same.

Theophages or Deivores. But not Deiphages or Theovores. Never, ever mix your Greek and your Latin. Just remember "television":

Television? The word is half Greek and half Latin. No good will come of this device. — C. P. Scot

Ireland May Be Next To Censor the Internet

PakProtector Re:Blasphemous! (155 comments)

They claim they are eating and drinking of him, that isn't the same thing as actually doing it.

To them it is. That's the point. They are necrophages — I don't know if cannibalism technically applies since, in their minds, while he was fully human he was also fully God. So all Catholics are at the very least necrophages, and at the most anthropophages.

So don't turn your back on the damn cannibals, for you are delicious in wafer form when served with wine.
