Home Generators (or How DTE Energy Ruined My Holidays)

ScooterBill Move (695 comments)

You could always move somewhere that doesn't get covered in snow, ice, rain, mud, etc. every year. This would probably involve a southerly location. I live in the mountains in So. Cal. and I haven't had a power outage lasting more than a couple of hours in the past 6 years.

Study Suggests Women Prefer Internet Over Sex

ScooterBill Re:Speaking for the majority of male Slashdotters: (16 comments)

What a dumb title. The question was not "do you prefer the internet EXCUSIVELY over real sex". I doubt many people would completely give up sex for the internet.

MySpace Verdict a Danger To Depressed Kids

ScooterBill Re:We cannot tame the world nor should we (502 comments)

There is a bit of hypocrisy in this story. I've read many comments that say "I can do whatever I want online but you can't do anything to me". Would you hop into a car with a stranger? Would you give out personal information to someone you just met at a bar (no matter how charming the person is)?

The beauty of the internet is it's freedom but like in nature, the wild jungle is host to predators and prey. You can't have a "safe" internet and a "free" internet. You need to be careful in the virtual world too.

Scott Adams's Political Survey of Economists

ScooterBill Bias (939 comments)

So he funds a survey of economists who are mostly registered Democrats and then subtly criticizes the validity of the study because (presumably) they favor the candidate who (in his opinion) will tax the bejeezus out of his wallet and who happens to be a democrat.

Is this a joke or what?
