Microsoft Suspends Gamer For Being From Fort Gay

PocariSweat1991 Re:Huh? (490 comments)

The homosexual community distorted the word in the first place. It used to just mean 'happy'.

Was it the gay community that "distorted" those words, or was it the straight community that forced them upon the gay community?

No More Need To Reboot Fedora w/ Ksplice

PocariSweat1991 Re:interesting (262 comments)

That means there's libre-free software and a service provided by a non-distro company which is, for selected distros, gratis-free. For now.

I like your Latin-based distinction of "free" better than the free-as-in-beer v.s. free-as-in-speech method.
I'll have to remember it for the next time I give a speech on OSS at the Roman senate.

GPS Tracking Without a Warrant Declared Legal

PocariSweat1991 Re:Why should I worry? (926 comments)

I've always been curious about this quote ... are communists, trade unionists, and Jews the only groups of people known to speak up?

I'd like to believe that monarchists, Zen Buddhists, the PTA, and a few Presbyterians would get involved before I need to leave my couch.

Digital Devices Deprive Brain of Needed Downtime

PocariSweat1991 Re:Instant distractions (222 comments)

This is the very reason I don't have a cell phone

I met a gentleman last night who recently purchased a Droid phone and claimed that it's the first mobile phone that he's ever owned. When I asked him why he didn't own one before, he responded:

"I thought cell phones were only useful for buying drugs."

I think he also has a 5-digit slashdot user id

Sorting Algorithms — Boring Until You Add Sound

PocariSweat1991 What Fun! (118 comments)

The Selection Sort's soundtrack was quite fun!

It feels like your head is going to explode at the end, and the final pass is the sound of brain matter splattering across the pages of your algorithms textbook.

Can Twitter and Facebook Deal With Their Dead?

PocariSweat1991 Where's the Bureau of ATF? (284 comments)

"One and a half million Facebook users die each year."

That's about 3 times as many annual deaths as tobacco users!
Where's the Bureau of Alcohol, Twitter, and Facebook when you need them?

Kids Who Watch Popeye Cartoons Eat More Vegetables

PocariSweat1991 Re:Oh oh (119 comments)

According to TFA, you would need to plant cookie seeds, take part in cookie tasting parties, cook cookie soup, and watch Sesame Street in order for Cookie Monster to affect your diet.
