Riecoin Breaks World Record For Largest Prime Sextuplet, Twice

Wootery Re:Of course it's a prime... (46 comments)

Errr... is that meant to be funny?

Maybe I'm missing something, but stating mathematical falsities is not, in and of itself, funny.

It's a waste of my time every time I make an effort with you ACs, really...

Uber's Android App Caught Reporting Data Back Without Permission

Wootery Re:So, in essence, Uber's app is malware (206 comments)

The usual excuse is but what if we confuse someone!?

Mozilla, too, are a fan of this sort of reasoning.

Cops 101: NYC High School Teaches How To Behave During Stop-and-Frisk

Wootery Re:Wouldn't time be better spent... (474 comments)

Its better to have a population that can deal with that asshole too.

Maybe, but I'd far rather that asshole didn't have police powers.

Is a Moral Compass a Hindrance Or a Help For Startups?

Wootery Re:Capitalism does not reward morality (197 comments)

You're a troll, but anyway:

Of course, there will always be murders and rapes, but economic system and societal decisions, make a huge difference on the frequency of murders and rapes. Compare the murder rates of different countries with comparable economic strength.

Court Shuts Down Alleged $120M Tech Support Scam

Wootery Re:Why... (129 comments)

But the whole story is that the court shut them down. Surely it is considered fraud (or something similar), no?

Blowing On Money To Tell If It Is Counterfeit

Wootery Re:Isn't most counterfeit money (112 comments)

This is a reasonable point. Some things should be an 'in-house' affair: minting currency, and producing assault-rifles for your military, are things that a lot of countries prefer to do themselves.

Blowing On Money To Tell If It Is Counterfeit

Wootery Re: Why worry? (112 comments)

A troll, but I'll bite. (I'm fairly sure you cannot post something that stupid without trying). What is it with ACs? Anyway: old money is gradually phased out. This is the reason one doesn't see ancient coins in circulation. Are you able to wrap your head around that, or should I try again?

I, however, will not.

UK Hotel Adds Hefty Charge For Bad Reviews Online

Wootery Re:The TripAdvisor URL (307 comments)

Those are the ones with complementary venomous insect 'pets' in every room.

Here in the UK, there are essentially zero venomous insects in the wild. You could buy them and release them into people's rooms, if you really wanted, but I doubt this hotel has that sort of initiative.

Sweden Considers Adding "Sexism" Ratings To Video Games

Wootery Re:More detailed ratings are a good thing (641 comments)

Never give government more power than the worst-case scenario you would be willing to live under.

Oh, here we go with the libertarianism spiel.

Fundamentally, I trust my government to create laws, and to imprison people. I benefit immensely from this, as it is one of the enabling factors of modern civilized society. In the worst case, these governmental powers could be used to create a draconian police-state... but I'd still rather trust them with that power, than live in a country with an impotent government.
