Type44Q Re:huh? (187 comments)

The ones who think eating chickens is murder

I believe it's only murder if your meal is smarter than you, therefore most of my fellow Americans should consider becoming Breatharians. :p

Toyota Names Upcoming Hydrogen Fuel Cell Car

Type44Q Re:How do I refill it? (194 comments)

Look, either go full 100% electric and just put in chargers everywhere, or use CNG

If you're going to talk about existing distribution infrastructure, why not choose Option C: Propane autogas? It's #3 in the States (behind gas and diesel) as well as the most common alternative fuel worldwide...

You know how we know you are from the US? Because you are talking out of your fucking ass!

I'll have you know that when I talk out of my voice, it's with a distinctly Danish accent!

Pope Francis Declares Evolution and Big Bang Theory Are Right

Type44Q Re:Not actually a new stance (669 comments)

which tends be very very influenced by American protestentism (ie, evangelicals)

You're thinking of fundamentalists. Protestants aren't (necessarily) evangelicals (nor are evangelicals necessarily even fundamentalists).

I feel like pointing out that it wasn't very long ago (25yrs?) that fundamentalists and evangelicals were considered fringe weirdos here in the States (except, perhaps, in areas where inbreeding tends to be less frowned upon). Also, while you might expect the literacy rate to be nominal amongst mainstream Protestants (and apparently it is), illiteracy is sky-high among evangelicals and fundamentalists.

So the moral of the story might be that the less likely you are to possess the ability to read the Bible, the more likely you are to actually believe its contents. ;)

Employers Worried About Critical Thinking Skills

Type44Q Re:Here's one reason (553 comments)

Republicans reject teaching critical thinking skills...

And it stands to reason that they would; seriously, what's the point of returning society to feudalism if the rest of us aren't willing to play along and act like retarded peasants and serfs??

Will the Google Car Turn Out To Be the Apple Newton of Automobiles?

Type44Q Re:Rain and snow? (287 comments)

Your totally Aspie-ish inability to spot humor notwithstanding, I actually agree with your idealism... but it's quite clear that you've never gotten to enjoy the "pleasure" of living amongst the wonderful [and admittedly all-too-human] folks in question! ;)

Will the Google Car Turn Out To Be the Apple Newton of Automobiles?

Type44Q Re:Rain and snow? (287 comments)

Sure performance will be degraded in bad weather, and the car will have to slow down to compensate. Which is exactly what humans do.

Considering that Texans and Okies tend to speed up when the streets are slippery and visibility's been reduced, I suspect this confirms my suspicion: hicks aren't human! :p

Michigan Latest State To Ban Direct Tesla Sales

Type44Q Re:Tesla wasn't the target, it was China (256 comments)

it has to be able to drive 1000 miles in a day

That's perfectly reasonable; you'd only need to drive at 65mph for nearly fifteen and a half fucking hours without ever stopping to get gas or take a piss. :p

You simply don't get it: in the long run, those two ideals are anything but mutually exclusive.

Type44Q Re:credibility of article is doubtful (571 comments)

It is amazing that reporters seem to lack even an 8th grade level of science education

Indeed, they seem to lack an 8th grade level of science education. However, I have it on good authority that they actually lack even a kindergarten level; they're just good at faking it. ;)

Type44Q Type44Q writes  |  about 2 years ago

Type44Q (1233630) writes "Well, the latest edition of Mint is finally here (the release candidate, anyway); according to The Linux Mint Blog, "For the first time since Linux Mint 11, the development team was able to capitalize on upstream technology which works and fits its goals. After 6 months of incremental development, Linux Mint 14 features an impressive list of improvements, increased stability and a refined desktop experience. We’re very proud of MATE, Cinnamon, MDM and all the components used in this release, and we’re very excited to show you how they all fit together in Linux Mint 14.""
