Mozilla Appoints Former Marketing Head Interim CEO

TrollstonButterbeans Re:Many, many ways (202 comments)

Dude ... whatever that overly long diatribe was about, I'm sure it has fuck-all to do with a free web browser.

Get a grip, a freebie web browser isn't the same of a can of tuna with dolphin meat in it or whatever screed you wrote a baby-bible over.

Saturn May Have Given Birth To a Baby Moon

TrollstonButterbeans You mean *DWARF* moon (71 comments)

You mean *DWARF* moon. Because in order to be considered a *real* moon, it has to clear its orbit of debris.

(Standing in solidarity with Pluto!!)

Mathematical Proof That the Cosmos Could Have Formed Spontaneously From Nothing

TrollstonButterbeans So "nothing" has quantum fluctuations (590 comments)

So "nothing" has quantum fluctuations.

I have zero apples, which one will produce an apple seed to grow a tree.

Note: The article itself doesn't imply what the summary says, but the summary here makes the article seem like nonsense.

Double Take: Condoleezza Rice As Dropbox's Newest Board Member

TrollstonButterbeans Knowingly or unknowingly? (313 comments)

"I won't do business with or respect anyone who supports torture"

Comedic post of the day!!!

I would assume you've never bought gasoline or bought a "made in China" product or paid taxes then?

Probably all your clothes were made by children in poor countries. Your computer and your cell phone are made by something just short of slave labor.

Apple: Dumb As a Patent Trolling Fox On iPhone Prior Art?

TrollstonButterbeans I've used slide to unlock for years (408 comments)

Sue me for this example but here goes ...

Even since I was 3 or 4, almost every time I had to go #1 I used an apparatus that I called a "zipper" and used its "slide to unlock" feature.

Why Are We Made of Matter?

TrollstonButterbeans Re:Prove it (392 comments)

I agree with the "prove it", but isn't the current big bang theory that initially everything was energy for a short while and there were no particles, therefore neither matter nor anti-matter, initially? If so, the idea of the article of when and why and how the imbalance occurred seems very relevant.

We wouldn't be calling it anti-matter, we would just call it "matter" and would be still asking the same question.

So there are really only 2 scenarios.

Most Expensive Aviation Search: $53 Million To Find Flight MH370

TrollstonButterbeans Okham is very fast racer (233 comments)

And the fail is you misspelled "misspelt" attempting to do a spelling correction.

The real truth is that Occam didn't have a razor, those didn't get invented until several centuries later, and that a correct translation is "Occam's Lathe" but the Greek translation to German got mistranslated into English, as I'm sure you heard, and so we go ....

And so goes history ...

Federal Bill Would Criminalize Revenge Porn Websites

TrollstonButterbeans Re:Jerkfaces Usually Get Their Due (328 comments)

My post had several sentences and you want to pick at that one which is ok. But the aggregate point I was making is that "revenge porn" is similar to stalking and exists only to cause emotional distress to the target.

Are you ok with that point at least?

Federal Bill Would Criminalize Revenge Porn Websites

TrollstonButterbeans Jerkfaces Usually Get Their Due (328 comments)

Rights always get adjusted when they get abused in a way that hurts people consistently.

And revenge porn only exists with the intent for jerkbags to hurt people emotionally.

Is there room for this behavior in a world where saying the "N" word, calling gay people words beginning with "F", etc. isn't socially acceptable?

This is a no-brainer. Revenge porn is an abuse of trust.

The Problem With Congress's Scientific Illiterates

TrollstonButterbeans Sure the comment was stupid but ... (509 comments)

I'm sure with 438 men and women in Congress, stupid things get said everyday.

And most of them are 60 or 70 years old and don't understand things like the internet, cell phones and haven't been in college or highschool in 50 some years to know what science is.

This isn't so surprising that someone would say something very ignorant, but no doubt it happens every day and those people are out in the real world too.
