India's Chandrayaan Lands Impact Probe On the Moon

Smackheid Re:Indian Probe? (203 comments)

So how long before there is a bollywood musical on this?

That's not a bad idea. Plus, given Bollywood's prodigious output, it's very likely to happen. Should be interesting to see what the choreographers come up with to choreograph those Indian dance moves in big shiny space suits.

[US] Listen closely to what they say

Smackheid Re:Bullshit (12 comments)

You have been christened as my first foe. You should feel special.

Normally I would (you can check my JEs for proof), but this is the slightest foeing I've yet received, so underwhelemed would be the more accurate description.

Intolerant of arrogance? Absolutely.

So you're saying Dick Cheney's arrogant? He's still not going to pay one nanosecond for anything he's done.

Bloody Hell

Smackheid Smackheid writes  |  more than 6 years ago They will give mod points to anybody. Just got 5 and my karma's only good. WTF?

Still waiting on Jamie to unbork the account. Past performance suggests the next 24 hours.

Relationship change

Smackheid Smackheid writes  |  more than 6 years ago This is a message for the two peeps who recently friended me. This account is just a sockpuppet I'm using while administration unborks my main account, which is here. That's where all the action is, or at least will be in a few days, so you may want to readjust your pointers.

How to end the Iraq war

Smackheid Smackheid writes  |  more than 6 years ago Sly has the answer:

Without a doubt it is one of my own. I appear in a dream sequence wearing diapers in STOP OR MY MOM WILL SHOOT. It makes me want to lower myself into a wood chipper headfirst every time I see it. God...if I could take every print of that movie and airdrop it across Iraq, the war would be over! People would run screaming into the streets begging to surrender saying "No more, no more, this is too inhumane!!"

InfoDump - Karma

Smackheid Smackheid writes  |  more than 6 years ago Did a little research, and came up with the following:

New accounts start at +1. Garner enough upmods, and karma bonus kicks in, making the default score for a fresh post +2. How many upmods will it take though?

Our first test case shows that the account received +2 status after 48 upmods and 2 downmods, for a total of 46. However, 9 of those mods were +1 funny, which do not impart karma, for a new total of 37.

Further, since archived comments do not detail mod breakdown, several upmodded posts may contain +1 funny moderations, hidden under other mods.

Still, at this point, I think it's safe to say that you need approximately 35 upmods to go from start to karma bonus. I'll do another account later on in the week and see what the comparison is.
