Retired SCOTUS Justice Wants To 'Fix' the Second Amendment

Xicor dumb idea (1574 comments)

guns dont cause mass shootings... people who break the law do. guess what is in common with people who break the law in one way and people who break the law in another? they tend to break laws. making it illegal to own guns does just a little to them as making it illegal to kill people. we dont need to stop people from owning guns, we need to find better ways to stop mass shootings... even if that means putting in boxes of 'in case of terrorist, break glass'. as far as schools go, i think we should give teachers the ability to have handguns in locked safes in their classrooms, and allow them to take it out it the case of a shooting situation.(of course, they would need to be trained for it as well).

For the First Time, Organ Regenerated Inside a Living Animal

Xicor Re:Alright, alright,alright (94 comments)

well, it was recently decided to start treating aging as a disease instead of a natural occurrence. For some reason, (not pointing fingers at religious folk), this idea has been put off for far too long.

Xicor Re:here's how stupid this is (146 comments)

you may replace it with air cooling down the line, but that air cooling is much better than the small thing they would have on the gpu. you can get a much larger cooling unit if you dont have to put it directly onto the gpu.

Seagate Releases 6TB Hard Drive Sans Helium

Xicor Re:~1000 *Bits* per square inch? (147 comments)

... that statement is just plain dumb. bytes of data are the same 8bits regardless of storage density. if they switched it to cm^2, they would just change the number from 1000/inch^2 to 1000/2.54/cm^2

Your Car Will Tell You How To Hit the Next Green Light

Xicor can already see this happening- (364 comments)

you need to maintain 200mph in order to make the green light... watch as people accelerate like mad and then slam on their brakes when they cant quite make it.

Getting Misogyny, Racism and Homophobia Out of Gaming

Xicor Re:Disable player chat (704 comments)

hes talking about putting things into the game that teach people not to be racist, etc. via a dynamic learning thing. one example would be quests in an mmo that show you first hand how bad it makes people feel when you are racist... etc.

U.S. Students/Grads Carrying Over $1 Trillion In Debt

the idea is to get your core classes out of the way for 100$ a class at a community college, and then just pay for your last 4 semesters

U.S. Students/Grads Carrying Over $1 Trillion In Debt

Xicor Re:Tell me again... (538 comments)

you can get them a little more expensive with utilities nearby off campus for the same quality. if you want a crap apartment though, they have those around for half the price

U.S. Students/Grads Carrying Over $1 Trillion In Debt

Xicor Re:Tell me again... (538 comments)

my point was simply that the expensive part is housing, not the tuition itself. if you go to a community college to get all your core classes out of the way, you can get yourself a degree with a little more than $10k in tuition at a decent school. the problem is, during this time period, if you have to pay for an apartment, you end up having to pay en extra 30k almost on housing. your $10k bill is now $40k. this is not the problem of the schools or the education system, this is a problem of the cost of housing.

U.S. Students/Grads Carrying Over $1 Trillion In Debt

Xicor Re:Tell me again... (538 comments)

in most places, it isnt the college that is expensive, but the housing. i pay 3k per semester(which i guess is a little expensive) on tuition... i spend 600 a month on housing.
