Horseshoe Crabs Are Bled Alive To Create an Unparalleled Biomedical Technology

SlippyToad Re:Biodiversity and environmentalism (159 comments)

". If a species goes extinct because of us then it wasnt fit to live"

By who?

Maybe it was fit to cure cancer, and we weren't fit to know that because we're glib dumbasses and wasted them all before we bothered finding out.

Exxon Mobile CEO Sues To Stop Fracking Near His Texas Ranch

SlippyToad I think (317 comments)

We should start taking our contaminated water and dumping it in the swimming pools of the 1%.

I want to see them explain why this is bad for them.

Your Next Online Order Could Be Delivered To Your Car's Trunk

SlippyToad Re:How does this benefit the delivery company? (162 comments)

Gawd. No, they fucking do not.

One day you guys will get over the Cult of Snowden and realize what truly childish and useless people you've chosen to truckle with.

Reporting From the Web's Underbelly

SlippyToad Re:Editing still going strong, I see (74 comments)

I read Cuckoo's egg when I was in my early 20's.

It was published, back in my early 20's. Surprised to see anyone else even knows about it.

Gabe Newell Responds: Yes, We're Looking For Cheaters Via DNS

SlippyToad Re:Banned from Battlecraft (511 comments)

You ignorantly shoot your mouth off, get virtually every important detail wrong, get called on it, and cry fuck off?

What a jackass. Did you forget to go over and swim in the fucking sewer on 4chan? Sounds like that's where you belong.

Gabe Newell Responds: Yes, We're Looking For Cheaters Via DNS

SlippyToad Re: Banned from Battlecraft (511 comments)

I pretty much figured he was ranting and had no exact clue what he was talking about.

I mean, he's not even entirely sure which game he got banned from, and hasn't played it in three years. Are you even sure you're banned? Maybe you just forgot how to play.

Have you been banned, or are you just being a concern-troll asshole, and whining about something you don't actually understand.

EU Commission: Corruption Across EU Costs €120 Billion

SlippyToad Re:... meanwhile in USA ... (196 comments)

such as that obamacare website that cost the taxpayers hundreds of millions - a website assigned to a company without any open bidding

I thought smart people came to Slashdot. I didn't realize Fixed News Fuckwits were paid to troll here too.

You should have sharted. It would have been more useful than your ODS garbage.

NSA Says It Foiled Plot To Destroy US Economy Through Malware

SlippyToad yea, right (698 comments)

Just chiming in: I believe this is probably total horseshit, and more pathetic propaganda from the NSA, who have clearly gotten too big for their damn britches.

Massive Exoplanet Discovered, Challenges Established Planet Formation Theories

SlippyToad Re:Upper limit on planets? Lower limit on stars (129 comments)

How that is calculated is beyond me

A certain amount of mass equals a certain amount of pressure, which is what's required to start hydrogen fusing.

Employee Morale Is Suffering At the NSA

SlippyToad wahh (841 comments)

Zero sympathy. Sorry. You picked spying on your countrymen as a job. We all have known what's going on. Now, it's time to live with the consequences.

Sucks, don't it?

China Prefers Sticking With Dying Windows XP To Upgrading

SlippyToad Re:Why not... (333 comments)

Lumpy, you're an idiot.

I have servers running Windows NT 3.51 that still make more money an hour than 100% of the people here on Slashdot

Yea, what happens when that hardware quits? And who do you call when it stops working? Don't tell me it never stops working. I built my share of 3.51 servers, back when it was a supported OS. It is not by even the remotest account a more stable OS than the modern Windows servers.

You are one unexpected fuckup from being unemployed, Lumpy. You won't be back here to brag at all of us how your 3.51 install barfed on you and you got fired on the spot because you had absolutely no way to bring your antiquated gear back online. You have NOBODY to call. So when it goes bad, it will ALL BE ON YOUR HEAD.

I would not be feeling so fucking smug there, buddy.

China Prefers Sticking With Dying Windows XP To Upgrading

SlippyToad liars (333 comments)

Windows XP is one of the easier-to-pirate Microsoft OS'. Actually you just need to put in either all 1's or all 9's.

So, the premise is total horseshit.

Thieves Who Stole Cobalt-60 Will Soon Be Dead

SlippyToad Re:Tough luck.. (923 comments)

I've always thought that if you rob somebody at gunpoint then death is a proportional response

Yea, I am kind of not cool with the gun in my face thing either, and if I ever find one there I will take the very first opportunity to end the gunman, and also these idiots stole radioactive waste, which put everyone around them in danger. I'm not cheering on the karma, but they did start the whole chain of events. It's just what is.

Thieves Who Stole Cobalt-60 Will Soon Be Dead

SlippyToad Re:Tough luck.. (923 comments)

I was stalked and repeatedly attacked by a bully growing up. I talked to a friend who had known this guy later in life, and he was the kind of guy who would do any stupid thing if he was challenged, or dared to. It was just his thing.

So yea, I'm sure he ended up the muscle for some petty drug dealer or pimp, and likely has toured the inside of several prison facilities by now. He was on that path at age 10 when I ran into him for the first time. And my friend described this guy as fuckin' dumb. Would do anything, especially if it was DUMB.

I don't feel any sympathy for these guys. I don't think they deserved death, but death found them anyway because they are ill-considered people without a lot of common sense.
