Study Explains Why Women Miscarry More Males During Tough Times

Swampash Re:I am going to take this a step further (113 comments)

And it means that the tribe has a group of individuals who can contribute all the positive things about being male (strength, endurance, agility etc for hunting and group defence) without the number-one negative thing about being male: fighting with other males over females.

Study Explains Why Women Miscarry More Males During Tough Times

Swampash Re:I am going to take this a step further (113 comments)

Shortsightedness is certainly an aid to finding a mate :)

Seriously though, the presence of male homosexuals in a tribe gives that tribe an advantage over all its hetero-only neighbors. They're males who aren't competition for breeding partners. Competition for breeding partners is the #1 source of self-destructive crazy in any tribal group, hell just look at Islam.

Modern homo sapiens is a species that contains homosexuals, which means that having homosexuals among your number is a survival trait. All the human societies that didn't have homosexuals, or that did but cast them out, well they're not around any more. They got outcompeted by the humans that did have homosexuals.

CIA Lied Over Brutal Interrogations

Swampash Dear USA, good riddance (772 comments)

Your time in the sun has passed; you turned your back on your hard-won Enlightenment birthright and you have squandered your wealth.

We are all the poorer for the loss of what the United States could have been.

Your Empire has lasted far shorter than most; the collapse is coming, and it is well-deserved.

Fuck off and die.

Study: HIV Becoming Less Deadly, Less Infectious

Swampash Re:Not necessarily good news (172 comments)

LOL I love how the article is predicated on the assumption that evolution actually exists.

"There is nothing new under the sun" (Ecclesiastes 1:9). AIDS was created 6000 years ago, just like the Earth and everything else.

Study: Chimpanzees Have Evolved To Kill Each Other

Swampash Recent claims by whom? (224 comments)

What a load of PC "humans are the only baddies in the world" bollocks.

Chimpanzees have a well documented history of intra-group hierarchical violence, violence against females and extra-group murdering raids. This is nothing new. Anthropologists have known this stuff for decades.

The Argument For a Hypersonic Missile Testing Ban

Swampash Re:Ban when you are done testing? (322 comments)

A better description of the Millennium Challenge comes from War Nerd's doppleganger War Tard:

In 2002, the Pentagon tried to suppress the findings of a huge US war game called "Millennium Challenge" where the US Navy (Blue Force) was pitted against a "hypothetical rogue state" (Red Force) in the Persian Gulf region. Red Force was led by Lt. Gen. Paul Van Riper, a total bad ass, whose job was basically to play the role of the butt raped lesser nation at the hands of the mighty technology of the all powerful US Navy. Instead of following the script, this Van Riper guy went off reservation and went all asymmetrical on Blue Force's ass, an ass which consisted of a full US Navy carrier group.

      Though the rules stated both commanders could use any rule in the book, the brass didn't expect the shit Van Riper pulled. Once the war game was up and running Van Riper's force disappeared off radar. He relied on couriers instead of radio to stay in touch with his field officers. The US navy cryptographers were rendered useless in a single blow. He employed novel tactics such as coded signals broadcast from the minarets of mosques during the Muslim call to prayer, a tactic weirdly reminiscent of Paul Revere and the shot heard round the world. He even used carrier pigeons to deliver messages to some of his commanders. God I love this guy! He then launched a daring attack against the US Blue Force carrier group by hundreds of kamikaze speedboats some of which were armed with Chinese Silkworm anti ship missiles. I shit you not. The result was a carrier and two helo carriers sunk along with 13 other assorted ships, the worst defeat of the US Navy since Pearl. The Pentagon had a shit fit and scrubbed the whole exercise, dismissed Van Riper and replayed the whole thing this time making Blue Force 'win'. Basically, the navy brass pretended it never happened. Lunatics in speedboats apparently don't count and are considered 'cheats'.

You put a 5-billion-dollar aircraft carrier up against, say, five hundred incoming rockets, drones, torpedoes, remote-controlled boats, and tiny speedboats - only one of which has to be carrying explosives, the others can all be decoys there just to fuck with your radar operators - and what you have is a 5-billion-dollar submarine. Total cost of the attack, let's be extravagant and say one thousand dollars.

The Argument For a Hypersonic Missile Testing Ban

Swampash Re:Ban when you are done testing? (322 comments)

The Chinese can already knock out American carriers with impunity. Anyone can. That's the lesson of just about every wargame in the past fifteen years.

Except the ones that were rigged to to guarantee American victory I mean:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M...

Aircraft carriers are obsolete. They're not about force projection, they're about marketing, because they look impressive on camera and they have a ready-built stage for "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED" banners.

Australia Repeals Carbon Tax

Swampash Re:Fuck them! (291 comments)

I can't put how I feel in words on any other site, so here goes:

FUCK FUCK FUCKING FUCKITY CLUSTERFUCK!

Fuck them and the lying cunts who bribe them!

Fuck them and the fucktards who voted for them!

Fuck them and the stupid shitheads who bleat about "warmists" on the internet (even here on Slashdot)!

And finally, FUCK EVERYONE who voted to repeal the tiny bit of sensible legislation passed in the last fucking decade. You are beneath contempt.

Thank you Slashdot, for having no profanity filter (apart from all you caring moderators, of course, all of whom I personally love and respect).

Quoted because this AC post deserves to be above the filter.

Fuck them all.

Terminated AdSense customer sues Google - and wins

Swampash Swampash writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Swampash (1131503) writes "Huffington Post contributor Alan Greenspan has posted an account of his successful small-claims battle against the faceless nameless phone-number-less monolith that is Google customer support over an AdSense account termination. "In the end, printed on a baby blue sheet of paper by the clerk's aging dot matrix printer, the judgment was actually entered for $761.00 total, due to the $40.00 court costs. I couldn't help but to smile in front of the judge. 'But it's not fair!' Google's paralegal protested. 'What if everyone whose account was canceled sued Google?'" What if indeed."

Inventor Colin Murdoch dies of cancer

Swampash Swampash writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Swampash (1131503) writes "New Zealand veterinarian and inventor Colin Murdoch died of cancer yesterday. Murdoch was responsible for (among other things) the disposible hypodermic syringe, the tranquilizer dart gun, the child-proof bottle cap, and the silent burglar alarm. His Wikipedia entry also mentions that "despite the relative ubiquity of his inventions, Murdoch did not become rich because of them. He deliberately chose not to sue companies that violated his patents, satisfied instead that they were being put to good use." You may not have heard of the man, but chances are your life has involved one of his inventions."

Redstate.com accuses Lessig of communism, bigotry

Swampash Swampash writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Swampash (1131503) writes "This one comes in from Bizarro World. Republican blog Redstate.com has published an article decrying Lawrence Lessig as a "digital communist" who "believes there should be no such thing as intellectual property rights" and who spends his time "denigrating the Christian religion". The article concludes by rhetorically asking if, since Lessig is an Obama supporter, Obama really is the sort of person Christians can support."

Fun with Boeing airliner networking

Swampash Swampash writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Slurm (1131503) writes "Wired is reporting some ah... interesting networking issues with the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Interesting in the sense that passengers may theoretically be able to gain network access to the plane's control and navigation systems. 'Boeing's new 787 Dreamliner passenger jet may have a serious security vulnerability in its onboard computer networks that could allow passengers to access the plane's control systems, according to the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration. The computer network in the Dreamliner's passenger compartment, designed to give passengers in-flight internet access, is connected to the plane's control, navigation and communication systems, an FAA report reveals.'"
