FTC Taps Ed Felten As First Chief Technologist

Snarkalicious Re:Duh (76 comments)

It's getting there. Once upon a time, it was the provenance of the correct, used to punctuate a pithy, incisive attack. In recent months, it has become the equivalent of 'your mom', an over-used bit of drivel at the end of proclamations by minor douchebags (Hi! My name is Snarkalicious. Just sayin). Soon it will fall into disuse, only beeing brought up occasionally by Freepers and the like who came across it for the first time in 2-4 year old comments and find it to be horribly charming.

President Obama To Appear On Mythbusters

Snarkalicious Re:Science? (795 comments)

Do try to keep in mind who the target audience is. Hopey might be aiming too high, as is.

Company Presses Your Ashes Into Vinyl When You Die

The second song that cruises in on name rec doesn't count. You must be a Brit, what with your fixation on echoes of glory and whatnot.

Hardware Hackers Reveal Apple's Charger Secrets

Snarkalicious Re:Good Lord! (371 comments)

Since when did jerking off in the bushes outside someone's bedroom window count as rape? Jesus, guys...it's not as if I'm sort of sicko.

Hardware Hackers Reveal Apple's Charger Secrets

Snarkalicious Re:Good Lord! (371 comments)

Dude. It's not her level of self-esteem that determines whether or not my punk ass can make an initial approach.

Next time I'll make sure to include a footnote with the sub-text so nobody mistakes me for Mike Tyson, or whatever.

Obama Sets End of Iraq Combat For August 31st

Snarkalicious Re:Finally (659 comments)

Too early. If that was the play, he'd have the announcement in mid September and show backing numbers near the end of October.

If we, as Americans, had a political memory to speak of (and, yes, I'm willing to go out on a limb and call 2.5 months to be overly generous on this count) we never would have tried to fight this regime change oriented 'war of liberation' to begin with.

Obama Sets End of Iraq Combat For August 31st

Snarkalicious Re:Finally (659 comments)

Do you have links to show these spiraling poll numbers?

Supermajority?

Man, you can disagree all you want. It's a free country, after all. But for chrissakes, do your own research. Glenn Beck is LYING to you, and Rasmussen has an agenda beyond selling graphs to USA Today.

Senators Want Big Rocket Instead of New Tech, Commercial Transportation

Snarkalicious Re:The Senators' rocket design dictates a payload (342 comments)

That's not pork, that's access peddling. Similar in character, but pork is more local.

IMHO, has very little to do with either of these, however. This one is all about the upcoming elections. Every Senator on the committee who went for this proposal can haul it home and plaster disembodied figures in the billions all over their ads as proof of their own fiscal responsibility. It doesn't even have to make it to the floor. If it gets blocked they can just link it to an opponent's stance on something not necessarily related and score double points.

Reason #348 why it's so damned easy to get re-elected to the Senate.

Snarkalicious Re:The Senators' rocket design dictates a payload (342 comments)

I am absolutely sure that nobody in the industry has submitted research on this subject and the numbers are purely arbitrary.

Nobody on the Committee is from Utah, BTW. If this were a slaughterhouse order, it's more likely the big contracts would be proposed in New Mexico.

Blizzard Backs Down On Real Names For Forums

The bean counters were just translators on this one. The execs just needed the consumer's message spoken in their own language.

NASA Launches Moonbase Alpha

Snarkalicious Re:Obviously this game was contracted for... (230 comments)

Strange...

It's always seemed to me that the general mood at this and other such boards are largely dismissive of moon missions as a valuable component of future NASA endeavors. (been there/done that, sustainability issues etc etc)

Why would this policy change, therefore, drop his numbers among the Nerd community?

NASA Launches Moonbase Alpha

Snarkalicious How stimulating. (230 comments)

I can only imagine that the excitement curve for the game will be the same as any other MMO or living on an actual moon base.

Day 1: Woo! I'm on the server/moon!
Day 2: Wow! I can do like, 6 different things. Sweet!
Day 12: OH SWEET JESUS WHY CAN'T I ESCAPE THIS EYE-STABBING BOREDOM!!!!!
