US, Germany To Enter No-Spying Agreement

Rivalz Read the fine print.. (209 comments)

Here's how I think this agreement will turn out.
1) If violated the president agree's to have his feet tickled profusely.
2) To avoid being caught the US allows UK to spy on Germany using our equipment which they hand over the info to us.
3) US asks the UK not to Spy on the US for this benefit
4) US asks Germany to Spy on UK for the US for our agreement not to spy on German

United States Begins Flying Stealth Bombers Over South Korea

I think they are just trying to posture before they make their demands known.
1) Season pass to Disney.
2) Candle lit dinner with Denis Rodman, Mickey Mouse, and Goofy.
3) Orgy with aforementioned individuals.
If their demands are met they will give up the nuclear arsenal.

Researchers Find Megaupload Shutdown Hurt Box Office Revenues

Rivalz Re:Does it or does it not (203 comments)

Box office != to Movies sold.
Simple fact of invalid comparison.
Although I think pirates are most likely going to be movie fans that enjoy watching more movies then they can actually afford.
So even though the article is flawed I don't necessary disagree with it... just about how they formulate their conclusion.

Are Teachers Headed For Obsolescence?

Rivalz Re:Ha, you threaten teacher jobs and see what happ (570 comments)

Here is what I anticipate something along these lines in the next 10+ years.

1) Students are required to learn via computer.
2) Reduce the number of Course hours by 2 and extend Art, Music, Sports, Ect time by two hours.
3) Students who progress test poorly via computer are forced to have extended after school tutoring with 4 kids per teacher for two hours extra of school per day of your grades slip below a B or you TEST anything below a C.
4) The hours that students report to tutoring is in blocks. Teacher has 8 blocks allowing for 32 dumb students.
5) Kids that get an F require 2 Hours of EXTRA tutoring 1 student per teacher.

Kids are motivated to stay in C+ range because they don't want to be required stay after school later and miss out on sports or whatever they do at home.
Teachers are still on staff for tutoring basis but not as many and hopefully only the ones that work well with students who have learning issues.
If a student wishes to OPT for Tutoring they can do so.

Paying Hacker Extortion

Rivalz Can't it support both? (412 comments)

It seem's like it is making everyone happy these days.
News agencies are creaming their panties.
Companies get to sweep shit under the rug while their competitors crash and burn. (I bet you Microsoft was heart broken to hear the PSN got hacked.)
Hackers make some money and who knows might eventually get laid.
The Government gets to restrict our freedom's and buy bigger shiny new toys and has even more reasons to keep printing money until it costs more to print it than its worth.

LulzSec Phone-Bombs FBI and Blizzard

Rivalz Isn't this along the same lines as... (404 comments)

Isn't this along the same line as causing a traffic jam at a busy intersect just to say hay you should have a police officer watching every traffic corner?
Maybe I'm missing the point but mostly they just seem to cause petty disturbances. Are they trying to make it so companies have to weigh every new venture they role out with the thought of risk vs reward?
I always wanted to be a person who achieves something not someone that goes over to the next guys sand castle and kicks it down and says damn should have made that sucker hurricane proof. Better luck next time.

I'm just surprised these guys don't naturally just turn on each other over time.

Facebook's Broad Patent On Digital Media Tagging

Rivalz Access Control Group? (61 comments)

Isn't this the same concept as being a member of a group and gaining a variety of access permissions?

How is this not the same just changing the naming semantics of the general idea?
I mean can i just patent any idea and substitute a previously defined terms with my own made up one?
