The Woman Who Should Have Been the First Female Astronaut

Tanuki64 Re:Eh (184 comments)

In which case, why should she go instead of someone more qualified?

YOU SEXIST. She is a woman... there cannot be anything more qualified than her.... Except... perhaps... a lesbian woman.

The Woman Who Should Have Been the First Female Astronaut

Tanuki64 Re:All about perception (184 comments)

It's all about white men.

Sure it is all about white men. Doers do. They start and run things. Like the NASA or Air Force. The don't whine: "Wahhhhhh.... they don't give me. They don't let me. They don't work of their asses to finally heave me onto a pedestal.

The Woman Who Should Have Been the First Female Astronaut

Tanuki64 Re:The mention of Valentina Tereshkova is ridiculo (184 comments)

that at that time at least, the USSR was ahead of the US in terms of gender relations.

Oh, sending a woman into space was 'ahead in terms of gender relations'. So sending a man is automatically sexist? I tell you a secret: Only the most stupid brainwashed sexists think that way.

As Prison Population Sinks, Jails Are a Steal

Tanuki64 Re:Three laws a day (406 comments)

Not necessary. First I would put more women in prison. The ratio imprisoned man/woman should at least be 50:50. You know, gender equality and such.

Obama Names National Medal of Science, Technology & Innovation Winners

Tanuki64 Re:I always like to say I'm a NPP winner myself (53 comments)

You can be glad that the Nobel Price rules forbid to give the price posthumously. Else Hitler would have gotten it long ago. Probably twice. Once for his contribution to the unification of Europe. And once for the world.

The Single Vigilante Behind Facebook's 'Real Name' Crackdown

Tanuki64 Re:Differential enforcement (305 comments)

The problem is not this guy nor Facebook's rules, but that the rules were enforced in a biased manner.

You don't like biased rule enforcements? MISOGYNIST!!!

The Single Vigilante Behind Facebook's 'Real Name' Crackdown

Tanuki64 Re:Facebook empowers bullies (305 comments)

What's troubling is the fact that no one at Facebook contemplated the possibility that this policy would be used as a form of bullying.

Who says they did not? Generally there is nothing wrong with bullying. As long as it is the right side, which does the bullying.

I'd say she is a good proof of the saying: Beauty is only skin deep.

If Intel stands to this decision, which I doubt, my next processor will be an Intel.

Why did Microsoft skip Windows 9?

Tanuki64 Re:OS String Issues (399 comments)

Wanted to mod this 'funny'.... But then stopped... It is M$... so 'informative' might be more appropriate.

Obama Administration Argues For Backdoors In Personal Electronics

Tanuki64 If I'd say 'Let us kill Obama'... (575 comments)

...and I'd get in trouble for this, I suppose in this case 'Think of the children' would not work as excuse?

Obama Administration Argues For Backdoors In Personal Electronics

Tanuki64 Forbid Google, Apple to entcrypt (575 comments)

I could not care less. If I had something I really need encrypted, I would not rely on what those companies try to sell me. I might be paranoid, but I have some trust issues with huge American companies. Wonder why. I would rather do my own encryption. Now some insightful persons might say, that doing ones own encryption is almost a guarantee to get cracked. I agree. I am a software developer, but I would never try to invent my own encryption algorithm. This would be madness. But I'd try to chain several existing ones. Encrypt with several different programs. Hopefully at least one has no backdoor and/or implementation faults and cannot be cracked. I might not be able to create my own secure encryption algorithm, but a nice wrapper program to make the chaining convenient and easy to use should not be a problem.
