Among Gamers, Adult Women Vastly Outnumber Teenage Boys

Talderas Re:Amazing (275 comments)

Indeed. Quality is not the metric that was proposed. If you want to bring quality into the discussion then you need to look at how the individual approaches games. Do they just play it and use it as a diversion? I personally wouldn't say that qualifies as a gamer, at least as far as it concerns whether it's a hobby. Hell, my mother plays farmville but she doesn't self identify as a gamer. She looks at it as a diversion.

Talderas Re:Amazing (275 comments)

And as far as advertisers are concerned the candy crush, farmville, and word with friends group is more valuable as they are exposed to alot more ads than the person playing mario on an xbox.

Well yeah... that's because the former is a group numbering tens of thousands of players while the latter consists of exactly zero.

NSA Agents Leak Tor Bugs To Developers

Talderas Another Angle (116 comments)

Am I alone in thinking that the NSA doesn't really care about exploiting flaws in TOR but rather is more interested in encouraging its use because they've exploited something else?

Cops: Well, we're a little puzzled over one of your countries... uh Finland?
Randy: What? What about it?
Cops: It appears to have been destroyed.
Randy: What? Oh my god! Not Finland! Oh no! No! Not Finland! Hey guys, Finland's dead. Somebody better break the news to Norway, they were really close.
Cops: None of you knew anything about Finland's destruction?

Talderas Re:nuke it in orbit... (117 comments)

The space shuttle launch pads are about a kilometer away from the ocean. I was under the impression that satellies weren't exposed payloads until they near the end of the burn of the rocket.

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Launches Nov. 13th

Talderas Re:That reminds me... (146 comments)

Final Fantasy XIV: ARR.

They have over a million preorders for their Chinese launch. Right now estimates place them at around 1,500,000 to 2,000,000 subscriptions (worth noting this was WoW's subscription count about 1 year in). With the Chinese launch they'll jump up to nearly half of WoW's current active subscription count of 6,500,000.

California May Waive Environmental Rules For Tesla

Talderas Re:So, such rules are bad for keeping people worki (327 comments)

The world doesn't end just because some people work 80+ hours per week while others don't work at all.

I think, although I am not certain, that the people who want or desire short hour work weeks are pissed those that will work 40/50/80 hours a week because to them as long as there are those that are willing to work long hours the short hours they desire won't come to fruition. Just a guess though.

There is something to be said if goatse is considered benign. Then again we are living in a world of two girls one cup. Maybe that will begin to appear benign after five girls one aorta.

3 Congressmen Trying To Tie Up SpaceX

Talderas Re:seriously? (393 comments)

Congressional approval rating is a bogus statistic that is used to create headlines from nothing. It is generally indicative of average opinion of the 532 senators and representatives that they have no influence over.
