iPhone Alarms Hit By New Year's Bug

Sabz5150 Re:Use a real alarm clock (405 comments)

Why shouldn't I use a phone as an alarm clock?

Did you not see the topic of this article? My plug in has never crapped out due to bugs. Looks like you can't say the same for that phone.

The Fourth Amendment says people should be secure in their "persons, houses, papers, and effects." These are all clearly material things, and don't include the contents of your brain.

I'm so glad I wasn't the only one thinking of the more "entertaining" applications for this. But why in the hell would you want a 100 watt laser? I mean, besides the sharks.... what are you gonna do, make a Lego version of Real Genius?

Desired Input For Console Video Games?

Sabz5150 Re:Famiclone problems (271 comments)

The latest models have MUCH better compatibility. The FC Mobile II is by far the best clone I have used. The audio is perfect, almost every game runs (I own every one of the games you listed, and the only one it does not play properly is Gauntlet, giving you the improperly built levels) and holy hell it's a portable NES. Comes with two wireless controllers and a wireless light gun*. If you are without an NES or want one on the go, that's where to put your cash.

* No, you can't use it on the 2" screen.

James Cameron To Develop 3-D Camera For Mars Rover

Sabz5150 Re:Why? (143 comments)

When you are developing a robot with the possible goal of sniffing out alien life, its best to leave out references to human eradicating aliens and robots. At least I would.

Mega Man 10 Confirmed For WiiWare

Sabz5150 Re:Why not upgrade the graphics? (104 comments)

Because some of us who have been playing this series for twenty-plus years are used to the game as it sits damn near down to pixel count and just how many toes Megaman needs to keep on a ledge to not fall off.

Cooking May Have Made Us Human

Sabz5150 Re:Not Quite. (253 comments)

fittest is technically speaking physical fitness. and in evolution survival of the fittest does not apply to intellect, as in other species the most intelligent one usually lose (why there are no talking lions (lol).

Really? Then how did we become the "fittest" species on the planet when we can't outrun a housecat, much less something bigger that sees us as food?

NASA To Team Up With Russia For Future Mars Flight

Sabz5150 Re:Understanding (318 comments)

And somehow a hair over 200 years ago, a group of independent "nations" as it were found a way to be unified. They called it a "more perfect union" I believe, knowing that it would never be perfect but its people would always strive towards it. How did they do it? They sat down and hashed it out... like human beings should.

A unified planet is inevitable. Whereas you might not see what you have to gain, many other nations and their people do. Saying that you don't want others to join you there because it doesn't jive with your world is, quite frankly, selfish.

They've already done this for air travel. Unfortunately it's called "luggage". I don't think their plan was thought out very well.

Man robs convenience store with Bat'leth

Sabz5150 Sabz5150 writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Sabz5150 (1230938) writes "Colorado Springs police are looking for a man who hit two 7-Eleven convenience stores early Wednesday, armed with a Klingon sword inspired by the Star Trek science fiction series.

The first robbery was reported at 1:50 a.m., at 145 N Spruce St. The clerk told police a white male in his 20s, wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and wearing a black mask, entered the store with a sword.

The suspect demanded money and left with an undisclosed amount.

Both clerks described the weapon as a Star Trek Klingon type sword, called a "Batleth.""
