Book Review: Survival of the Nicest

Sigvatr A common misconception (176 comments)

Survival of nice people does not mean that mean people don't survive. It just means that nice people survive. The mean guys aren't going to go away either.

Ask Slashdot: Will You Start Your Kids On Classic Games Or Newer Games?

Sigvatr Why not both? (285 comments)

My son is too young to be able to play games yet, but he watches me play both new and old games. I think some parents might be afraid that if their children are exposed to new games, they will never like old games, but I do not think this is necessarily the case. Maybe when the kids grow up they can be hipsters with good taste in old games, just to go against the grain.

Ask Slashdot: How Do You Protect Your Privacy These Days? Or Do You?

Sigvatr I don't care (319 comments)

My idea of privacy is closing the window whenever I watch porn. I don't want to deal with my neighbors complaining to me about having to listen to loud screaming creampies. I don't give a fuck that the Illuminati looks at my browsing history, it doesn't bother me in the slightest.
