If it weren't for the AD, this might have been funny as sarcasm.

Thousands of Leaked KGB Files Are Now Open To the Public

Skiboy941 Dead Trees (95 comments)

If I can't download it, then what's the point of this even being posted? Am I really going to have to fly to Britain to read these? Also, It's in Russian. These aren't useful in their current form. "Hi guys! I'm going to leak the TRUTH! But you'll have to be able to know how to read Russian, be in Britain, set up an appointment, and have 2 forms of ID!" Hopefully, some nice person will bother to scan these, just like they did with JD Sallinger's "unreleased" stories.

Anybody remember those: "CONGRATULATIONS! YOU'VE WON A FREE iPAD!" Those used to startle the shit out of me, since my speakers were usually on high.

Millionaire Plans Mission To Mars In 2018

Skiboy941 Only a couple of million? (97 comments)

Hold on, let me pause for a moment to laugh. (pause) Ahh, that was funny. Seriously, try scraping together a couple of BILLION dollars before you start planning a mission to Mars, Mr. Moneybags.

We should also devote equal time in astronomy to the hypothesis that the Sun revolves around the Earth, and that the Earth is, in fact, flat.

The Best and Worst From CES 2013

Skiboy941 Re:Silly names... (152 comments)

From wikipedia: "He is typically depicted as a man with a large belly wearing a loincloth, having long hair and having pendulous, female-like breasts." So the fork is to prevent you from getting fat and getting man-titties?

MIT Investigating School's Role In Swartz Suicide

Skiboy941 Re:The school is not responsible. (382 comments)

It's not "copyright law" that should be changed because somebody committed suicide.

Copyright law should be changed anyway, not just because someone commited suicide.

MIT Investigating School's Role In Swartz Suicide

Skiboy941 Seriously? (382 comments)

For a school known for basically "creating" and making hackers, It's kind of sickening that they would take legal action against him. If he got into their network just like that, they should have talked to him about his reccomendations for better security. And this is extremely strange from the school that does Open CourseWare. What he did was justified. Scholarly articles should remain free, not stay hoarded on JSOR and other databases.

Torvalds Uses Profanity To Lambaste Romney Remarks

Skiboy941 Linus is 100% correct (1223 comments)

Romney is a f***ing moron. As for the Mormon comment, he is still 100% correct. I don't believe in gods, demons, ghosts, or gremlins. As if religion wasn't already silly enough, the Mormons had to make it even sillier with their magic underwear.

What are the effects of all of that energy floating around? I think this needs more testing. Also, this sounds highly inefficient.
