China Blocks Google.com, Gmail, Maps and More During 18th Party Congress

Slutticus I know. (129 comments)

I was just feeling very hyperbolic at that moment. But any little thing added to the pile will help people pay attention, and dammit, people like their googling.

China Blocks Google.com, Gmail, Maps and More During 18th Party Congress

Slutticus Good. (129 comments)

Now let these companies stand strong, don't budge, and the people will become restless, they will become angry, and they will revolt against their government. Irony. The thing they are trying to prevent will cause a spark that will lead to their downfall.

Disney to Acquire Lucasfilm, Star Wars Episode 7 Due In 2015

Slutticus Re:How about a re-boot of Episodes I through III? (816 comments)

I've thought hard about this, and i think you're absolutely right. Initially, i was more interested in what del Toro's take would be on the final transformation of vader. however, there are too many good bits in Episode II that would be awesome with his touch.

4chan Undergoing Major Revision, Getting Public API

Slutticus Re:Public's View of 4chan (166 comments)

And the Roman Catholic church is still thought to be full of pedophiles, even though it's only a few priests who actually are, and all government officials are accused of being corrupt, even though most are making an honest effort to do their jobs right.

Actually, you are wrong. Every priest is a pedophile, as in....they are ALL attracted to little boys, not that they've all necessarily acted on those impulses. Think about it, who in their right mind would ever submit to a life of celibacy when one could simply be a preacher in another christian religion and be able to marry a woman? Who actually makes that choice? (the answer is: pedos). It's like those guys that say homosexuality is a "choice". Ummmm....yeah....it is a choice for you because YOU'RE GAY

Apple Tells Retailers To Stop Selling Certain Samsung Devices

Slutticus But.... (308 comments)

But, since it's "not cool", and I own one anyway, doesn't that make me "cool" again? Kinda like those hipster faggots and their instagram app, fuck me, how uncool is that? But its cool 'cause it looks shitty. See?

Santorum Calls Democrats 'Anti-Science'

Slutticus Santorum claiming that.... (1237 comments)

Santorum claiming that environmentalists are "anti-science" is like saying anti-rape activists are against sex. What a fucking lunatic, I can't believe this is the best the GOP can come up with. Are they sitting this one out or something?

Steve Appleton, Micron CEO, Dies In Plane Crash

Slutticus That wasn't his only fuck up (116 comments)

He was clearly in communication with the tower as the plane was rapidly loosing airspeed, asking permission to turn around and land. WTF? I mean seriously, whats the first fucking thing you learn as a pilot? It's amazing how that brain can fart, even for an experienced guy like this. RIP.

Kid? Ha! I wish. My first ballistics game was scorched earth (DOS prompt and all...maybe around high school i think.....). I suspect there were games even before that (actually chucking shit at other shit with a real tank or trebuchet for instance).
My point was, however, being made in terms of TOUCH input games, not necessarily ballistics games in general.
