93 Harvard Faculty Members Call On the University To Divest From Fossil Fuels

SensitiveMale I hope they do and watch costs go even higher (214 comments)

Sell off the stock that is generating them funds. Have fun explaining why fees are even higher.

Such economic strategy takes a university mind.

USB Reversable Cable Images Emerge

SensitiveMale Quick tip - USB logo is always on the top (208 comments)

So when you plug in a cable, the logo on the top is always correct. When it is a sideways plug, you are on your own. :)

Million Jars of Peanut Butter Dumped In New Mexico Landfill

SensitiveMale Re:If any slightest illness was ever even *suspect (440 comments)

Assuming you're right, that may work in the courts. With a judge. That definitely won't matter with the court of public opinion and probably wouldn't work with a jury.

Why San Francisco Is the New Renaissance Florence

SensitiveMale Give me a fucking break (250 comments)

You must have used Dragon software to write this article because you were obviously patting yourself on the back with both hands.

Bugatti 100P Rebuilt: The Plane That Could've Turned the Battle of Britain

SensitiveMale Germany lost the BoB because of Hitler's stupidity (353 comments)

Germany had, for all intents and purposes, won the Battle of Britain before Hitler decided to change the successful tactic of attacking primarily military targets to civilian targets.

Tim Cook: If You Don't Like Our Energy Policies, Don't Buy Apple Stock

SensitiveMale Re:Tim Cook doesn't understand the Law (348 comments)

Are you familiar with the law? It doesn't define best interest. Not all shareholders a motivated purely by profit. Those that are motivated as such had an opportunity to vote him out of power (the law is on their side for that), but they couldn't garner enough interest.

Actually, ALL shareholders are motivated purely by profit. Think I'm wrong? Apple has enough surplus cash to indulge in such ventures. What if Apple posted a $10B loss? Think such money sinks would still be funded? Yes, willingly paying a premium for energy is a money sink.

If Apple was losing money, all of their shareholders would be concerned. Don't be fooled into thinking they wouldn't be.

Tim Cook: If You Don't Like Our Energy Policies, Don't Buy Apple Stock

SensitiveMale Cook said it because Apple is rolling in cash (348 comments)

You best believe that if Apple was limping along financially then they wouldn't have splurged on such green energy ventures. Don't misunderstand me. Apple has the cash and they can spend it as they wish. But Cook is making a moral argument and it's only the success of the iPhone/iPad that allows him to do so.

Ask Slashdot: Should I Get Google Glass?

SensitiveMale Re:Joke? (421 comments)

I don't think you understand what "ad hominem" is. (Yes, I understand I am using it incorrectly, but I'm sticking with the theme)

Ask Slashdot: Should I Get Google Glass?

SensitiveMale Re:Joke? (421 comments)

I put in my application for Google Glass as a joke.

I don't think you understand what a "joke" is. Unless, that is, the information you supplied on the application is funny in some way.

I don't think you understand what "doing something for a joke" is. Actually I think you do, but you're being deliberately obtuse so you could follow up with that idiotic following sentence.

Getting Young Women Interested In Open Source

SensitiveMale Re:Maybe most women don't want to go into tech (545 comments)

Is it social bias or is it just the way things are? Building toys that boys like and marketing them to boys isn't "social bias." Same things with toys for girls. The whole bullshit about "social bias" is that boys and girls are equal in every way and think, act, and prefer in the exact same way until "society" forces blue on boys and pink on girls. Total bullshit.

Audience Jeers Contestant Who Uses Game Theory To Win At 'Jeopardy'

SensitiveMale Very little "game theory" here (412 comments)

Just common sense. Don't bet big on daily doubles if you don't know the subject. Hit the big numbers first. I'm always stunned when two contestants are $4k back and they keep picking the $200 questions.

Ask Slashdot: Suggestions For a Simple Media Server?

SensitiveMale Instead of looking at server software Go with Dune (420 comments)

I share my files with SMB, but I use a Dune HD B1 player. It plays everything including Blu Ray structures, DVD structures, ISO, MKV, MP4, M4V, AVI, and so on.. So if you're looking to play your files on a single TV, get the best player you can. A Dune HD.
