PETA Condemns Pokemon For Promoting Animal Abuse

ZeroMS This is.. (418 comments)

ridiculously hilarious. Now don't get me wrong, I'm a big animal lover and have done/do my share of volunteering but this sounds more like the head of PETA was the kid whose parents never bought him a game boy and now he's just mad

Ask Slashdot: What Were You Taught About Computers In High School?

ZeroMS Wasn't bad (632 comments)

I graduated in 2010, so it was fairly recent. I had 3 Web Design Classes (CSS, JS, HTML, Dreamweaver) and a Networking Class (prepares you for the A+ certification).

Hiring Smokers Banned In South Florida City

ZeroMS Even I find this outrageous. (1199 comments)

While I hate tobacco with every fiber of my being. It killed my grandfather, and my cousin's on his way there too. Not to mention I'm allergic to it and with enough exposure to tobacco smoke I start sneezing, getting a sore throat, etc.. I find this a complete and total violation of a person's rights. Fine that they don't smoke around me, or at work. But they should be able to smoke as much as they want in their own privacy.

Scientists Invent Electronics That Dissolve In the Body

ZeroMS It's much more sinister (69 comments)

Other posters are thinking it might be used for assassination. It's much MUCH more subtle than that. If I were a pharmaceutical, I'd create epidemics. New diseases even. That would reap in billions.

Ubuntu Will Now Have Amazon Ads Pre-Installed

ZeroMS What's so bad about this? (646 comments)

A FOSS Operating System such as ubuntu needs $$ to maintain its quality, like it or not. You can download it for free, and you can even play around with the source code. You get what you pay for. Plus, if enough revenue comes in through ubuntu, Amazon will take note and if future commercial relations happen between them, that could only mean a rise in ubuntu's (and by extension linux/gnu/FOSS) popularity. Ubuntu-powered ebook readers anyone?

Medicare Bills Rise As Records Turn Electronic

ZeroMS Re:Just socialise the damn thing already (294 comments)

There's a reason people come to the US for medical treatments.

You sure about that? Most people I know actually leave to other countries. Sometimes the flight + medical procedure in another coutnry is actually cheaper.

Medicare Bills Rise As Records Turn Electronic

ZeroMS Re:i apologize world, it is embarassing (294 comments)

There is a difference between banning and restricting. Banning means no one will have a gun (except criminals). Restricting means that most gun owners will not be mentally unstable individuals prone to shootings. Note the lack of shootings that occur in europe vs usa.

How Big Pharma Hooked America On Legal Heroin

ZeroMS Re:Meanwhile in the UK (499 comments)

and sadly these cannabinoid-based drugs will be the only form of legal cannabis in many western countries, while the plant itself is illegal. No way the gov't is gonna let Big Pharma lose money to people growing their own medicine. (GW Pharmaceuticals)
