Anonymous No More: Your Coding Style Can Give You Away

ThatsDrDangerToYou Re:No Kidding (213 comments)

Yeah, about that... I start twitching whenever my boss types: MyFunction (arg1, arg2) and so on. Who puts a space after the function name before the '('? People who must die, of course.

OK, calming down now.. 1.. 2.. 3.. 4.. 5..

No, I'm OK, really.

I had an old boss who was a code style nazi. He was an asshole. And actually, my current boss is very cool, even if he codes like that.

Parents Investigated For Neglect For Letting Kids Walk Home Alone

ThatsDrDangerToYou Re:Coddling = Fail (784 comments)

Well, there are some horrific parents out there. CPS is unfortunately needed, and most of the time they err on the other side, not removing kids who probably should be removed.

Having lived in Montgomery County myself, it is one of the richest areas of the country (just outside DC). However, there are awful parents in every single county, so don't kid yourself. Hopefully, the poor folks in this story find some resolution.

Parents Investigated For Neglect For Letting Kids Walk Home Alone

ThatsDrDangerToYou Re:The Dangers of the World (784 comments)

The more I read stories like this, the more I'm kind of glad that my dad passed away a long time ago. No way could he live in this world. Hell, I would be embarrassed to even let him *see* it.

Dad: "I faked my age to enlist at fifteen and fight at D-Day." Me: "In this world, leaving a twelve-year-old home alone can be considered child abuse." Dad: "And you're properly ashamed of this, right?" Me: "Every day I want to jump off a building."

Best to channel your energies into something positive. Throw someone else off a building instead.

Silicon Valley's Quest To Extend Life 'Well Beyond 120'

ThatsDrDangerToYou Re:How very nice for them. (273 comments)

You sound like a one percenter, minus the assets. Maybe you could do something with your life instead of caring what Kim does.

Yeah, sorry, was a pretty grumpy post. Feeling the financial pressure rather keenly just now and Kim copped it a bit unnecessarily, apologies all round.

Yeah, you should rethink the whole anti-Kim thing, because she actually had to put up with Kanye for.. a considerable time. They probably spent at least a few days together. Plus, she did a pr0n video, so there was some educational and artistic merit there. She still doesn't return my calls though. Bitch.

Silicon Valley's Quest To Extend Life 'Well Beyond 120'

ThatsDrDangerToYou Re:The key to long life... (273 comments)

It turns out the key to long life is to eat cigarettes and slather whiskey all over your skin. Take that, health nuts.

What sort of health nuts? Almonds are pretty good, but walnuts are nasty.

FBI Says Search Warrants Not Needed To Use "Stingrays" In Public Places

ThatsDrDangerToYou Re: (303 comments)

Just like the true Stingray can only live under water, these Stingray devices, I've heard, stop at the lawn. The CANNOT, by definition, trespass the space line between the sidewalk and the lawn, so you'd be safe if you were standing on the lawn. They can crawl over concrete, though. So they can go up your driveway and onto your porch, but the threshold into your house/apartment stops them dead in their tracks.

That's all well and good until the creepy violin music starts... Then all bets are off.

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.
