Tracking Down How Many (Or How Few) People Actively Use Google+

TrentTheThief Re: Because it sucks (209 comments)

No shit. I was okay with using G+ and really thought it had some great features and potential until Google started getting all fucking dark overlordish about using real names. That was when I drifted away from using it.

But as you mentioned, that bullshit about youtube commenting was insanely stupid. As was their decision to disallow commenting on Google Play without a vaild G+ account.

All that real name/closed environment bullshit was thought up by one very, very insecure person who had little experience (as compared to us older computer users) who did use GEnie, CompuServe, and Delphi for our first internet access and who also used dial-up BBSs back when a modem was an acoustic device you clamped onto a phone's handset.

Fucking google.... Still in mid-air during this shark jump.

Heinlein's 'All You Zombies' Now a Sci-Fi Movie Head Trip

TrentTheThief Yet another Heinlein story turned into dreck. (254 comments)

When the political and social commentary is written out of film adaptations, it leaves only some common characters and the story title. The rest is garbage.

Don't expect any hollywood studio to ever produce an actual Heinlein film. It's not going to happen. You'll just have to settle for filmed drivel sharing a title with a good book.

An Automated Cat Litter Box With DRM

TrentTheThief DCMA shutdown in 3...2......... (190 comments)

It's coming. The company would crash, obviously, if you could let your cat shit in just any old brand of litter. They have to protect their market share against interlopers!

You've missed a more basic requirement for pallets: Pallet trucks and forklifts.

So, exactly how does being a politician confer one with the power to ignore laws? Politicians are not pawns. They are either honest or not. America is unfortunately lacking in the honest variety.

As for campaign money, if you think the EU is any more honest, then you really are in a fantasy. I'm sorry I can't share.

LOL, you're so youthful and hopeful. I, on the other hand, am old.

I've been hearing campaign reform crap for over 50 years. Nothing has changed. If you think it will, then that's cool, too.

I have some wonderfully cheap and extremely fertile bottomland I can give you cheap. Only $3.50 per acre. It's about 400 miles east of Norfolk. Unhappily, I only sell have 750,000 acres left. Better buy in quick or you'll really lose out on this one!

Colorado Sued By Neighboring States Over Legal Pot

TrentTheThief A gap? (484 comments)

There is a gap in the program, and fortunately, Colorado, Washington, Alaska are leading the way through it.

Time to start putting those politicians into a landfill. When a politician decides to bend over in return for campaign money, they need to be placed into a landfill. Even if there's no special election to replace them, their constituency would be better off having a vacant seat than a legislator who has already sold them out.

Hold them accountable.

11 Trillion Gallons of Water Needed To End California Drought

TrentTheThief Re:But but but (330 comments)

Sure. Just move SoCal to Wisconsin.

SoCal is a scub/desert/swamp. That's just the way it is. Pouring water on a desert to make it anything else is the same as pouring sand on a beach to combat erosion. It looks good for a season, but nature prevails next year. You ultimately end up with exactly what nature put there to begin with.

It's all hype. This is not a "problem," it's called geography. You can't "correct" SoCal's location and geography with any technology now extant.

Microsoft Gets Industry Support Against US Search Of Data In Ireland

I think you wasted your time with that reply. That sort will always play a race card. It's what they learned from their parent(s).

Microsoft Gets Industry Support Against US Search Of Data In Ireland

TrentTheThief Re:You're drunk, America. Go home and sleep it off (137 comments)

Things are fucked up.

Obama is no better than Bush or Clinton, or any of the last 20 presidents. America once stood for integrity. America is now synonymous with corruption, greed, and outright dishonesty, and thought of more as a possible invader than anything else.

I am dead set on opposing criminal activity in contravention of the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Those document were put into place by learned men and when followed, proved quite good at restraining the more vile excesses. Unfortunately, they have been ignored for far too long.

So go fuck off with all your bullshit about racism. And fuck you too, for automatically assuming that everyone posting on SlashDot is Caucasian, you arrogantly stupid ass.

'Revolving Door' Spins Between AT&T, Government

TrentTheThief So, this isn't really news, is it? (61 comments)

After all, the government is corrupt as hell and AT&T... Well, we don't need to rehash that.

Maybe if there was something, so sort of code or something. Some specification for proper and honest behaviour that would forbid dishonest or harmful actions... I wonder what we could call them?

The only solution when something has decayed to this point is to start over. It's time to reboot by using politicians and corrupt bureaucrats as landfill.

Feds Plan For 35 Agencies To Collect, Share, Use Health Records of Americans

TrentTheThief Re:This will be another fuck up (209 comments)

Man, you sure used a hell of a lot of bytes convincing me that the gov't is a failed experiment. I wouldn't say anything, but you're preaching to the choir.

Politicians, lawyers, marketers, all are good for little more than landfill.

Feds Plan For 35 Agencies To Collect, Share, Use Health Records of Americans

TrentTheThief Re:This will be another fuck up (209 comments)

It's also fucked up that so many people ignore the enormous problems that still exist for many people trying to register and use the program. Obamacare may have brought some healthcare to many people, but it's going to crash faster than social security.

Shit would work better if medical providers would just charge EVERYONE the same fucking amount that the insurance companies have negotiated. When a person's hospital bill runs $22000 and the insurance company's discount runs their payout to only $3500, there's a fucking problem. If the provider's didn't inflate their charges, then maybe regular people might be able to afford to pay on their own.

If the expense of coverage is higher than a person would pay out of pocket if everyone got the discount, then how the fuck is it helping the situation?
