IBM Creates Custom-Made Brain-Like Chip

Von Rex Re:Actually... (105 comments)

And if you believe that, you'd score lowest of all. What's that make you, the mold on the sludge on the bottom of the coffee?

Von Rex Re: bitcoin value (294 comments)

It's your kind of people that continues to fund the drug cartels in central and south america.

No, it's people who believe in drug prohibition who continue to fund drug cartels throughout the world. Are you such a person?

Canadian Scientists Protest Political Sandbagging of Evidence-Based Policy

Von Rex Re:Sounds familiar... (216 comments)

If your definition is correct, why are the results of every "left wing" government less liberty, greater inequality and more division?

This is why it's almost impossible to have political conversations involving Americans these days. Before you can even start, you first have to face the legions of cultural myths that Americans take as gospel that just have absolutely nothing to do with reality.

Canadian Scientists Protest Political Sandbagging of Evidence-Based Policy

Von Rex Re:Sounds familiar... (216 comments)

Please, nobody is better at ignoring hard evidence than the left. Bad as all politicians are, right wing ones are still a lot less scaring than our new overlords from the left.

Wow. I'm always amazed at how much bullshit and projection rightwingers can compress into such small sentences. It's a sort of awesome literary feat, how you can fit so many completely false world views into so few words. It would be very difficult to write conservative characters with the same convincing density of completely wrong opinions.

Von Rex Re:Sounds familiar... (216 comments)

No, his description of conservatives is entirely accurate. It's easy to find examples of conservatives glorifying ignorance on most web forums. If you think such people don't exist, then you're indulging in the same kind of deluded, wishful thinking that you're accusing in others.

Chain Reaction Shattered Antarctica's Larson B Ice Shelf

Von Rex Of course they didn't vote for their own requests. (232 comments)

That's because Republicans are just like Lucy with her football. Don't know why Democrats keep playing that game. They keep expecting a different outcome, just like Charlie Brown.

Liberal Saudi Web Forum Founder Sentenced To 600 Lashes and 7 Years In Prison

Von Rex Yeah, right (506 comments)

No, his entire post is based on our history within our lifetimes and all of his claims are easily verified.

Your post, however, was nothing but links to right-wing spew sites that are currently occupied with the business of rewriting their own movement's history because that history is repellent to a growing number of voters. That's not a trend that's going to change as the only people left still swallowing the shit you're shoveling are dying off and not being replaced.

Attempt To "Digitalize" Beatles Goes Sour

Von Rex Yeah, right (434 comments)

Anytime someone disses the Beatles all they're doing is revealing they have no sensitivity whatsoever to what makes music great.

I'd bet my life that people will still be listening to the Beatles in a 100 years. They'll be listening to very little of the mass-marketed crap that passes for music today.

And there will always be new Beatles fans, just because the music is that good. I have a nine year old son and half a dozen teenage cousins. Every one of them thinks the Beatles rock, because they hear their music for the first time and think "Oh my god, these are good songs compared to what I'm hearing on the radio".

I think the generation coming up is going to be a lot more sophisticated about music and they won't be as taken in by hip hop poseurs, American Idol wannabes, and pretty teenage dancers masquerading as musicians. They seem to be a lot more resistant to advertising bullshit than the current crop of young adults.

Must be because of better parenting :)

Home Science Under Attack In Massachusetts

Von Rex Re:And they say ... (1334 comments)

I'm not certain they even needed a warrant. I've heard from people before that you absolutely do not want to fuck with the fire department. They have even broader authority to enter a house than the police if they suspect a fire hazard. But I couldn't tell you for sure if that is true. Because I don't fuck with the fire department.
