Programmer Father Asks: What Gets Little Girls Interested In Science?

ThatsDrDangerToYou Re:Yeesh (584 comments)

This is actually really good advice, Dr. Evil! (btw, if Scott wants a non-evil petting zoo, you should really stop trying to have him killed! Let the boy be!)

.. but on a serious note, going through the teen years, what seems to be the important thing is for kids to find "their people", especially if they go to a larger school. They need to be involved with something, anything. If teens have something constructive to do with their afternoons they will maybe not turn into crackheads. Or at least they will be nice, respectable crackheads, not the mean kind.

One can just wonder HOW MANY submissions will be of penises light-shows...

Mod Insightful! I haven't seen any other comments note this OBVIOUS reason why only girls are being recruited for this. Most 12 year old boys' light displays would depict the most epic penis displays, at least until their parents found out. Dammit Mom!

Uber Threatens To Do 'Opposition Research' On Journalists

ThatsDrDangerToYou Re:No, this is absolutely normal SOP these days. (299 comments)

Fact is, we need resources to power our economy, and if you give the impression that you oppose EVERYTHING(and there are people who do), or your plan amounts to powering the economy on fairy farts, perhaps your efforts to constrict expansion should be restricted.

I demand you retract your critique of my patent pending cold fusion technology!
